Hi, I would like to ask about on what is the best way/practice to use 'Wireless 802.1x' authentication. I maybe asking the wrong question but please feel free to correct me.
Two things:
1) I have configured vWLC with Tacacs AuthC, Authz, and Accounting. Im ok with this so far.
2) If ever I am going to authenticate user using 802.1x in a  WLC, what would be the process path looks like? Should it be like:

User -  AP - ISE - AD/NPS  (do we need NPS?)
or
User - AP - AD/NPS (SHould the user directly authenticated via NPS and bypassing ISE?)Topo

We are currently running Quickbooks Pro 2018.  We import invoices from a CSV on a given day.  However our accounting person then goes through customer by customer to send an invoice.  

What we are looking to do is two parts.  First we would like to generate a list of invoices for just the customers with invoices that were imported that day.  Lets call it 20 invoices, once we have that list, we would like to click to email them, but also attach that customer's aging report with that invoice(without having to bounce between a million screens).  Currently she is doing this all manually and its a nightmare.   Any help here would be absolutely amazing.

I use QuickBook 2016 and store data on server, i always backup my company file with QuickBook backup utility and it work just fine. And my concern is want to know that is it also work 100% if i manually copy or zip whole company folder to external HDD and copy back to anywhere and connect QuickBook to that company folder? (If you can detail me also about PeachTree would be very appreciated).

Thanks in advance.

We have an old version of CR (Version 6 or 7?) that came with our accounting software in 1998.  With it we are able to design reports and "compile" them (i.e. create .exe files) for distribution to other users on our network who have a need to generate various accounting-related reports for viewing and/or printing.  So, those client computers are able to run any of the reports, answer input prompts (parameters) that are in the network share but they can't change the structure of the report itself.

We are now researching and planning to upgrade to the latest version (CR 2016?).  SAP pre-sales support is telling us we can no longer distribute the compiled versions for other users on our network.  It's unclear to us if they fully understand what we're doing and whether this "barrier" real and, if so, is a technical barrier or a licensing barrier.

We are hoping to take the old .rpt files and convert them to the latest version.

I want to learn about 1 advanced services costco is using. And I am considering becoming a merchant (not of costco).

I signed up for costco membership in person at the costco store giving my united states state id.

But when I used my costco membership number to sign up for costco.com online I was asked questions about my credit report.

PLEASE READ ENTIRE QUESTION--I am looking for a recommendation from someone who had had FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE with software for an electrical contractor; this electrical contractor works in both the commercial and residential markets and does work on new as well as existing properties. They are looking for a solution that incorporates construction accounting (G/L, A/R, A/P, etc.), a service module for work orders, scheduling, dispatching, as well as T&M billing (mobile tracking included), along with a mobile app that includes invoicing & payments. They also want project and materials management for their bigger commercial projects, and proposal management that can easily be turned into actual jobs.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME LINKS TO SITES THAT COMPARE SOFTWARE as I have already done that myself--I have looked at a lot of sites that contrast and compare supposed constructor specific software but when I call and speak to these companies most are general purpose companies and DO NOT have the special and unique features needed in the electrical construction, maintenance and repair business. That is why I am asking for recommendation only from those who have had first-hand experience with actually using and/or implementing software in this very specific industry. They DO NOT want a solution that calls for combining solutions from many different companies, Thank you very much for your time.

Hey, we have been having a strange problem with our Quickbooks POS ver 13 multi user installation in a club setup (4 machines). Customers have to recharge their accounts before ordering and the big problem we have is discrepancies between current and available balances. However,the sale transactions are posted in real time but the balances take seem time to synchronize(happens  to a random member account irregularly ) and we have changed the LAN routers and cabling and the problem is still persisting. The charge to account is posted after some delays of a few hours. We have integrated the solution to Quickbooks premier for financial exchange. Our company file is 500MB big and the connectivity tool doesn't post any errors. The environment is available for remote access any time. Any pointers?

QuickBooks - all versions - DB Mgr issues and MultiUser mode plus simple access to a company file on a Server.

I've read article after article and  they all give the same solutions over and over - which of course are valid.  Open ports on firewall, exclude AV from scanning QB folders, share permissions, etc.
Although QB is a fantastic accounting program for the small business, its data structure and sharing is something else.  We have QB database mgr installed on servers ranging from Microsoft 2008/2012/2016 domain controllers with Microsoft DNS, dedicated QB member servers (No DNS), Windows 7/10 PCs with DB mgr, etc.  All experience the same issues over and over.
The problem:  Either cannot switch to MultiUser mode or cannot access a specific company file.

Our solutions, depending on which platform QB DB Mgr is installed on is basically to perform a "Scan" from the DB Mgr and once its complete, all is good.  Of course on DC's we have to stop DNS (or modify QB to look at other ports that don't conflict) or restart the QB service or just do the scan.  We do find that if we open the QB program on the DB Mgr server and open a company file, there is never an issue but that is not something you can leave because certain functions require QB to be in single user mode to perform.  Even if we disable any firewalls on the DB servers we still get issues.  Many times, on standalone servers, running the Scan to search for company files give a network error.  Most of the time we …

Hyper-V Storage Recommendation for small enterprise required.

I have a customer that is a 25 seat accounting practice.  Currently they have a server that is 4 years old, dual Xeon CPUs, 72GB of RAM.  Storage is a RAID 6 array of 8 15K 300GB SAS hard disks.  There are 2 years remaining on the warranty.  The server is a Windows 2012 Hyper-V host.  There are 3VMs, a DC, a file server and a RemoteApp server.  The server provides more than adequate compute resources but is running out of storage space.  One of the file server volumes has already been moved to a Synology NAS connected via iSCSI.  Even with that, storage on the server is becoming severely constrained. Storage requirements are only going to grow as the client is moving towards "paperless" operation.

I don't know much about storing VMs outside of the box that they are hosted on, but it seems attractive to move the virtual disks to some sort of network based storage. Easily scalable storage, and when the time comes the ability to replace the Hyper-V host hardware and simply migrate the VMs without disturbing the VHDs.  For a smaller organization like this it seems (from my limited research) that a true SAN is not going to be financially viable.  Is it feasible to use NAS boxes to store VMs or am I going to be better off just recommending replacing the entire server?

DR is handled by a 4TB Datto Siris, so building a multi node cluster really isn't necessary either IMHO.  I know there are some small scale …

Hi

Experts C#

Help me how to add a namespace to my existing project in C#. I want to add this new namespace :

namespace autocomplete_controls_csharp

Where do I insert the above name space ,the idea here is that I want to auto complete the combo box on my form instead of using a button to fill it in, those who have experience with MS access will agree with me that once a combo box is set the data is also auto filled in. Below is my simple project:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
namespace Accounting
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=USER\SQLEXPRESS; Initial Catalog=CaPremier; Integrated Security=true; User ID=user\admini");
            con.Open();
            SqlCommand cmdinsert = new SqlCommand("Insert into Customers values('" + txtCustomerID.Text + "', '" + txtCustomer.Text + " ','" + txtAddress.Text + "' )", con);
            cmdinsert.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
            cmdinsert.ExecuteNonQuery();

Hi

I have built a simple accounting system in Access  and modelled it around Northwind. I have
modelled the inventory part very much around Northwind. I now need to build a Bill of Materials component.

Does anyone know whether Northwind does this? Any recommendations on how to go about it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All,

I hope you can all help. Those with a foundation of security would be especially welcome; however opinions always offer some weight, even if from a non IT background.

I have a question regarding IT Security and Non Repudiation.

I have been in a work environment recently where I have performed the following on a whole.

1. When first starting everyone in the company was using one general admin account with "all power" permissions to administer the network.
I implemented a policy to make sure individual admin accounts where created for each IT Person; for accounting purposes.
All 3 personalized admin accounts setup have equal and full administrator permissions on the domain network.

2. When starting all passwords, including admin accounts etc.. where stored in an excel spreadsheet.
I moved this to an encrypted lastpass database; that was moved to a central platform later on for on the road IT staff.
Everyone was given access to the centrally system; however due to myself being occupied with a specific client; left management to another internal IT staff member.

3. The client which I did the above for has kept passwords of all its staff in an excel sheet; which I have advised against; however my reasoning has been ignored for control and I guess what might be a lack of trust of our IT company.


I have recently complained to my Directors(no managers, small company) about illegal activities that were taking place; such as providing unathorised …

My company is in the process of changing to Office 365, and one of my users has run into an Excel issue that I can't seem to overcome.

Situation:
User exports a report to Excel from our accounting software.  The spreadsheet contains several columns that has numbers set as text.  The user's solution to this is to multiply the spreadsheet by 1 and convert the cells and text to numbers. This is a Microsoft solution, although, I had never seen it used before.  

The problem is that once the file is saved and reopened Excel reports that the workbook is corrupt and needs to be repaired.  The repaired book has removed all of the letters from the spreadsheet.

Diagnostics:

Is replicated with several different reports and multiple computers
Does not occur with Office 2013 Pro Plus or 2016 Pro Plus (even on systems that crash with 365)
No error messages in Event Viewer
All Windows, driver, and Office updates have been applied
Office has been reinstalled
Excel cache and all temp folders have been cleaned out

The first option in the link to use the text to columns function, but one of the columns uses a merged cell so it won't work for the entire spreadsheet.


Thank you for your time,

Michael

I'm using Sage 50 Premium Accounting 3-User, and trying to upgrade from v. 2017 to 2018.  
Sage has announced that v. 2017 is going into Obsolescence on Feb 28, 2018.  

Sage requires an upgrade to version 2018 in order to continue using the software, so this must be done in some form within the next week.

This would be fine, except I just discovered that v. 2018 will not install on our server.  It is an older HP ML-310 running MS Server 2008 Foundation.
Sage 50 v. 2018 requires at minimum Server 2008 R2 operating system.

I will eventually upgrade this server, but it is a major undertaking for our small one-person (me) IT department.  

I am trying to discover if there are any hidden tricks which will allow me to fool the Sage software into installing successfully on the  Server 2008 Foundation system.

If I cannot figure a way to install the Sage update on my existing server machine, I will be forced to either hurriedly buy and configure a  new server (2016 Essentials?) or just install the Sage update on a client machine for the short term.  Neither of these options are good...

What I would prefer to do is find a way to get Sage 50 working short-term, then just buy a new machine with a modern OS and take my time setting it up and porting the needed apps to the new system.

For more background:  We are a small ~50 employee company with this one old server and about 10 workstations ranging from XP to Win10.  

Other than the Sage 50 Accounting, I also …

sitg,

There are several differences between a centralized server (using encryption) and the blockchain process. Here are the two biggest differences though:

First: Multiple distributed servers. When there are many servers around the world who all have to agree to the transaction you're attempting to make, the difficulty in faking a bad record (or changing a good one) becomes far more difficult because you need to attack all the servers at the same time.

Second: Chained records. Even if you get lucky with the first step (attacking all servers) and make it into the records of all servers at the same time by using some amazing hacking tools, now you have to alter every record in the stack. You see, you can't just change one and be done. You have to alter each of the records because their signatures are derived from ALL the previous ones. It's like replacing a child in a family with some random person. It won't work because they need to look like their parents (and the parents need to look like the grandparents). The child is derived from the parents' DNA (or signature) and gets a new DNA which is easily distinguished as being in the family (or not, if it's being faked).

An interesting side-effect arises from those two features...Let's assume you pull off both of these really tough challenges. You are still not out of the woods. Let's keep with the analogy and say this particular blockchain is an Asian family. You successfully change the child and the entire family, including grandparents, to Latino. All is well, you're in the clear right? Not so fast, someone you've never met presents a portrait of the family which they took sometime ago (a backup of the blockchain - even an old one) and they say, "Wait, this family is supposed to be Asian. "Something is wrong here. "The family's been hacked!"

Hi,

I have been using Excel (Google Sheets) to manage my accounts / balance sheet for the last number of years.

- income with Tax breakdown on the left
- expenses with Tax breakdown on the right
- totals at the bottom

It works well for me, however I'm slightly concerned over how easy it is to update a cell in error with '10' vs '10000' without recognising it.

Can anyone recommend any software that provides the following:

- easy interface
- export for backup
- ability to duplicate line items (recurring expenses and income) so that when a recurring payment lands in my bank account, i can duplicate a previous record and update the date
- add note to each line item

Additional Benefits
- app
- receipt management

Thanks in advance for your help.
