Thanks, I'll check out that mailing list. I'll look at the netscreen. The other option I was considering was the Sonicwall product line, but they seem mainly geared towards VPN instead of security,...

I really prefer a hardware solution for the firewall. I can't justify a rack mounted server for just firewall services, and I don't want beige boxes in the server room either. I also hate to admit...

I come from a Pix/Checkpoint background, and my current client can't swallow the price of these units and associated software annual fees.
So, this puts me in a pickle, whats the best...

Another good read on this topic is Cryptonomicon, but some author I can't remember right now. It follows the lives of several world war II guys, and some of their children in present day.

Interesting. I assume you are blocking syn packets also?
What sort of web site is this? Do you run asp pages that have posting capabilities? Ecommerce? I'd almost imagine this is some sort of...

Excuse me, which version of watchguard are you using? A firebox or soho?

What you may want to do is statically set your DNS settings in win2k to someting that doesn't change. If I run into a situation where an ISP sends me crap DHCP variables, I statically set to the...

Well, I support 200 win2k boxes at my current site and I've never seen a problem like this occur, except when the gear 2k was wired to was screwy. As CXGJarrod stated, those need to be reset every...

It sounds to me like your dsl router is the culprit here, if win2k still shows the interface is up. Can you ping the internal IP for the router? (i use bellsouth dsl and it uses the 192.168.1.x...

Oh, well, netstat should be located in your %systemroot%\system32 directory. You are running Xp professional and not XP home right? if you have netstat in your system32 directory, and when you type...
December 1st, 2003 12:15 PM
You say you can't perform any netstat commands, why not? Do you get an error, does it crash the system when you type netstat and hit return, or what? More data please.
Also, you say "MS-DOS...

Now that I will conceed, at least in the desktop arena. However Exchange is an enterprise mail server (granted, most people aren't using it to that degree) but still.
It almost makes me think...

I suppose, but Microsoft started claiming security was job one after the two versions of Exchange that are affected by this were made though.
If unqualified people are performing IT functions and...

Really though, if you're running Exchange in production and you get hit with a viral infeciton, wouldn't it behoove you to reinstall/restore from a good known backup instead of "clean up code-red"...

Ah interesting. I keep hearing SAP, but haven't encountered a shop that runs it yet. The closest I've seen to that I guess is Siebel w/Oracle, but that's not really the same I hear :)
November 10th, 2003 03:35 PM
Well, those were NT 4.0 machinss, back then you didn't get nearly as many updates as you do now. You might find a hotfix or two that warranted installing in production, but really you waited between...

I curious, what do you use AIX for? I haven't personally run across an AIX system in the field yet. Was curious what sort of application or whatnot it's designed for.
November 7th, 2003 04:29 PM
Yeah, ditto that on the uptime Louie. A while back my domain controllers and Exchange server had an uptime of almost a year (like 340 days), then we 'had' to re-org all our friggin rack space to...

Have you not seen the movie, or have you seen it and don't see why it's good? Your question was ambigious.
If you haven't seen it, the movie is basically a story of a dilbert-esque character and...

I was sitting here with a huge pile of work to do and since I was completely unmotivated to do any of it, I thought I'd ask the community this question:
How do you get over your project blahs? ...
October 16th, 2003 06:18 PM
Ah this is interesting. I'll have to read up on it next week. My client is moving offices tomorrow, so right now I'm making sure we don't get screwed by bell south on our T1 installations. ...

(snipped to save bandwidth)
Although many things can now be done in a GUI on Linux, the question is do you really want to?
I have heard that running anything other than the command line in...
October 14th, 2003 09:39 PM
So I'm really going to have to read? I know, I know, I sound like I'm whining. I was hoping this would be user friendly enough to pick up is all.
Ok, I'll check out the bible, thanks for the...

Thats kind of true. The conf file is good at explaining the settings for squid, but doesn't do anything to explain how to make sure its running, etc. For some reason when I installed, QUICKSTART...

Wow! Thats a good tutorial. I'll run thought it and see what happens. Thanks a bunch!
