I am trying to find a PDF solution for five users on a Remote Desktop Solution. So far, I am trialing Foxit, which now and even prior, I do NOT like. Even though Adobe is expensive, I prefer their products. The difference though in volume licensing is $150 for five users and $500 for five users.

I believe one has to get volume licenses for Adobe at CDW or Provantage. Not sure. Any help would be appreciated. Doesn't have to be Adobe. Thank you.

Are the following Application Servers Cloud Native?

1. Websphere Liberty
2. WildFly/JBoss Application Server

I mean without their native(IBM/Red Hat) Cloud offering, whether these two could be
considered similar to Node.js/Cloud Native?

I have a customer who is wanting to ensure his staff can't take any data with them.  We can lock down USB devices (Thumb drives, Hard Drives, etc), but he's now concerned about them accessing things on the server and getting them off by using web mail clients (Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail, AOL, etc) or file sharing sites (Dropbox, OneDrive, etc).  Short of blocking access to these sites (which would be a pain), is there any way to restrict their ability to steal his work?  And, if so, how difficult AND expensive would it be?

Failing that, is there some way of recording access so we can tell that John Doe accessed these 275 files today, and he was only supposed to be accessing 100 of them?

We're in a workgroup environment at the moment, switching to a Server 2016 AD domain.  All users are local admins on their workstations (Windows 7 and Windows 10).  A lot of the people in question will likely have to REMAIN local admins due to their software (AutoCAD, Quickbooks).

Please feel free to ask any questions for me to elaborate.

MacOS Sierra plug-in configuration a qualified success.  However, I have no CFB perspective.
Install log says:
Installation: Successful with errors.

Non fatal errors being two occurrences of

Indeed there is no such file, whereas there is a file /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Info.plist.  At the install log errors referenced path /Users/barrygbrunning/eclipse/java-oxygen/Eclipse.app/Contents/Eclipse/ are located folders: configuration, droppins, features, jre, plugins, readme and the eclipse.ini file, but no info.plist.
 
The implied "Deferring..." action seems to have not happened.  Any suggestions as to what I might do to recover the situation?  What should have happened to an info.plist somewhere? How might I get the CFB perspective to manifest in Eclipse?

how to configure SSL for JBOSS EAP 7.1 in domain.xml

I am in the process of getting an outdated server upgraded to a supported OS. Running VMWare 5.5 and we get getting a system off a Virtual Server 2003 x86, and upgrading it to the only available system possible a virtual Server 2008 x86. The original server is an application and file server. It has 3 IP addresses assigned to a single nick and the DNS has 2 of those IP's assigned to static FQDN's.
Here is where things get unusual...

When the original server is the one bound to the domain I can ping it from all of my systems. When the new computer is bound to the domain it will not respond to ping from only certain subdomains (inbound ICMP v4 & v6 are enabled for file and print sharing.. so it isn't the firewall).

The 2nd and 3rd IP's do not respond to any type of ping even though they show they are connected to the network. I have even tried changing the configuration by removing the 2nd and 3rd IP's from the one nic and giving them their own individual nic cards to see if they might respond from there. Again no such luck.

I am going crazy trying to get this to work properly but I can't seem to find a way to get the nic's to talk correctly, nor can I get them to respond to all of the subdomains that the original server had no issues responding to.

I am hoping that someone may have seen something like this before. I realize that an in place upgrade doesn't always resolve all issues but I've never seen something like this in any previous attempts.
Thank you in …

we have direct printing with two application servers running IIS connecting to  SQL DB . we have upgraded two application servers  3 months back and one application is not responding for direct printing .
our application vendor is asking us to check with the network team to resolve the issue  . but it seems to be nothing wrong with the network level .

Q1  - How can I confirm the network level issue is  clear - Eg by ping the client to server or  ?
Q2 -  Patch level , there are some changes in the patch level  , but our vendor has confirm before the patch upgrade ,there is nor issue with the latest patch update .

Our Printing is configured as below
Client end  - connecting the receipt printer to client PC  - Host name  - C1
Application server side  -   Direct printer is mapping    billingPrinterC1 and billingPrinter is the  prefix for the printer profile name for billing Dep.

billingPrinterC1   IPaddress

how can I rectify the direct printing issue on the not responding server .  Direct printing still using for big applications ? we are having so much of issues with this architecture . please comment on this
 I will share some testing result later

Cloud based application having issues with ldaps bind to our Domain Controller in DMZ.
The application vendor is seeing the follwoing log entries on their side:
           [7:Public User][1024:application notice][R] (:) - Unable to bind to the LDAP server.

Based on this they have taken a wireshark capture and seen the following sequence of packets:-
Source -> destination (DC)   TCP    49662->636 [ACK] Seq=805 Ack=12910
Source -> destination (DC)   TLSv1  Application data
Source -> destination (DC)   TLSv1  Encrypted Alert
Source -> destination (DC)   TCP    49662->636 [FIN, ACK] Seq=927 Ack=12910
destination (DC) -> Source   TCP    636->49662 [ACK] Seq=12910 Ack=928
destination (DC) -> Source   TCP    636->49662 [RST,ACK] Seq=12910 Ack=928

They are saying that the reason packet analyser highlights the [RST, ACT] packets in red is because after the connection closure by Cloud Application server (source) [FIN, ACK] , server is expecting a final [FIN, ACK] from Domain Controller  (destination) but [RST, ACK] arrives instead. And thus they believe that it could be a issue with the Domain Controller.

Is this claim correct?
What can we do to troubleshoot this further?

We are looking to replace our current SAP systems with a new one.  We were thinking of pointing using a friendly URL to point to the database such as  prodcutionSQLDB.ACME.com  and  productionOracleDB.ACME.com instead of using DB Server name.

This way our application servers just get this FQDN to point to the database.  THis would simplify our DR planning and future migrations.

The question is, does SAP require certificates or something similar where the application servers would not be able to communicate with the DB  (SQL or Oracle).  My understanding is SQL and Oracle use username\pass to authenticate,  or does SAP rely on certificates to communicate with the DB servers?

Hi,
I have SharePoint Server 2010 and Project Server trials installed.
I am trying to activate SharePoint Server 2010 trial, and found how to do it here
https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/26597765/Sharepoint-trial-product-key-expired-but.html
But when I entered the right SharePoint Server key, I got error, that the key is not valid Project Server 2010 key.
Is it correct? Should I really enter Project Server key?
Thank you in advance,

We are still using Tomcat 6.0 and plan to move to latest version by next year. Problem with current version is to set the access deny to our web-application.

I tried adding valve with webapps/META-INF/context.xml file as below but nothing works. Can you please provide a fix.

<Context antiJARLocking="true" path="/">
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve" />
<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="{IP_address}" />
</Context>

Or

<Context antiResourceLocking="false" privileged="true">
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="127\.0\.0\.1,8\.8\.4\..*"/>
</Context>

We're running a XA 6.5 environment, and I've just built a series of new VMs and added them to the existing farm.

I am able to see the new servers within the farm and have verified that the application servers are all same version (6.5), same OS Win2k8R2, same Hotfix XA650W2K8R2X64R03.  However the XML brokers (we have 3) are R04.  My first guess would be to verify that all the Hotfix packs were the same, however, when I try and launch applications from the old farm (R03), everything works normally with the XML brokers (R04).  I don't want to convert the XML brokers (R04) to a different hotfix pack (R03) and break the old production environment.  So why can't the new servers work with the XML brokers?

I have verified that the new application servers have R03 just the same as the old farm, however I am unable to publish applications from any of the new servers.

When I attempt to launch an application from one of the new servers, I see the following error messages in the WI:

1. An error occurred while attempting to read information from the Citrix servers: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
