I have actually two satellite dishes serving Internet to our remote facility.  

Based on machine MAC address, is it possible for certain machines to be provided service from one dish, while other machines are served from the the second dish?

What would be the technical issues involved in doing this?

Thank you very much.

i have a customer who needs to have emails coming into their server via two WANS right now. long story.
i have set up their lease line in and everything works fine. and connected their adsl both to a dreytek 2830. i have configured load balancing so that all outbound traffic goes over the lease line. port 25 is forwarded to thier server listening on both #WANs however it only works over the lease line. if i try  a connectivity test on the domain using the ADSL line it fails connecting on port 25.
what am i missing?

Residential account installed a server and SonicWall. Haven't asked Spectrum if commercial account is an option and prefer not to.

Ubee router, according to Spectrum is in gateway mode, meaning all data is passed onto the SonicWall. Problem is SonicWall will allow network for awhile however the Ubee device acts as if it competes the only way to get it to work again is by resetting. When this happens it appears the Ubee modem resets and is no longer in gateway mode. According to Spectrum a soft reset should not allow gateway mode to be removed.

Anyone know the best way to configure Ubee Spectrum cable modem to a SonicWall? Does Spectrum offer a better modem option, Ubee seems to be extremely limited.

Thank you.

Hi All,

We got Linksys LGS552p switch, and TZ400 Firewall.
behind a "AT&T Modem"  , but we have external IP for the TZ 400.

I need to setup VLANS, 90 for workstations, 20 or servers and 50 for voice.

am I missing any hardware to route between the VLANS?
where should I start with first?


thanks
Jason

Hey all, i have an issue that external calls has noise, delayed audio from the external side. Internal calls are fine.
We recently changed from the Telstra supplied modem to a Draytek Modem. All ports have been opened up the same as they were on the Telstra one, all lines and SIP registered straight away, however i have not been able to resolve the noise.
As Draytek have alot more advanced firewall settings, QOS, I'm not sure what feature / settings i need to change to test.
We are running freepbx 2.11.

Thanks

Dear All,

I would like to configure the connectivity on my home but I'm having some doubts and would like your help in order to configure the best way possible.

Devices:
Modem:  TPLink (TD-W8901N)
Router: Linksys (WRT1900ACS)

Currently I have two different options to configure internet connectivity:

1- Allow the TPLink to connect using PPoE on PV2 and specify user and password on the Modem and connect the cable from the TPLink to the internet connection on the Router Linksys (WRT1900ACS), so using this way we will receive internal IP Address from the TPLink instead of the WAN IP on the Internet Connection in the Linksys router.

2- Set the TPLink as Bridge Connection and connect the cable to the Internet Port on WRT1900ACS and configure the Router to connect using the PPoE on the Linksys and just use the TPLink as bridge.

Can you help me to understand the best recommended configuration and some explanation why just to understand?

Also would like to know if there any required configuration on the TPLink like VCI or VPI or something specific to have better performanc from the ISP?

I'm currently having performance issue on the connectivity and wanted to undertand the best way to setup the connectivity.

Thanks in advance,

This is a general question to show my ignorant side.  We have construction going on at my business and they need to widen the driveway.  There are wires that need to be re-located for this construction project and the general contractor notes that there is 1 T1 lines and several fiber lines.  The fiber lines, I know, are run by the local cable company to provide us with digital phones and broadband internet.  I am guessing that the T1 is for the PRI for my ShoreTel phone system.  Is it possible to service my phone system some other way via those fiber lines or is the T1 the only way that I will be able to function?

Hi everyone;

I'm encountering an issue with Outlook when sending emails after moving to a new office and install a new fiber broadband internet line (Sending through webmail or from phones is working).

With SSL encryption, port number 465 the outlook shows that the server does not support this type of encryption.

With TLS encryption, port number 587 the error is the connection to the server was interrupted.

Anyone encounter this issue before?

Any suggested solution is highly appreciable.

Thank you.

I am trying to implement a new network infrastructure.

Plan is to have an ASA 5508-X in our head office, and a number (starting with 4) ASA 5506-X devices in our small branch offices. Plan is to have the branch offices route all traffic via a VPN to the head office, so the 5506s just need to connect to a ISP, bring up a VPN tunnel, and maybe have a DCHP server or relay.  No filtering or examination of any traffic will occur on the branch office devices, this will all happen at head office. Also, the head office device wil be managed by an vFMC console, while I plan to just use the inbuilt GUI for the branch office devices. Since this is such a simple config, and the branch offices could cope with being down for a week, I did not order support for these devices.   Possibly a mistake. :(

All devices are running FTD 6.2.0.2-51, the latest.

Anyway, the issue I have is that I cannot get the ASA 5506-X devices to connect to an ISP. A couple of sites have ADSL connections with PPPoE. It looks like the ASA 5506-X does not have any sort of dialer, so it cannot be configured to authenticate. Seems a pretty basic feature to be missing, usually I would have just set the ADSL modem/router up to just be a modem, and used the firewall to authenticate.

Next attempt was to set up "Half bridge mode", (AKA RFC1483) on the ADSL modem, and let it authenticate an just give the ASA 5506-X the static IP via DHCP. I set up a modem to do this, plugged in a laptop, and it worked as …

I have two locations with almost duplicate setups.  
Location 1:  On a network run by a PDC.  The ISP is a cable company.   The one office in this location has 3 computers all connected to the network via a Netgear 5 port switch.  But also connected to this switch is a DSL connection via a dsl modem line to a preset location..  When the users need to connect to this dsl line they just click on the shortcut created on their desktop that directs them to the preset IP address.   All other communication for everything else goes through the regular PDC/cable network.  Using DHCP and automatically sees PDC as DNS provider.  Works great.

Location 2;  On a network but run just by a router, not a PDC,  through the local Cable company.  Two computers connected via an identical 5 port Netgear switch as in the location 1.  They have the the exact same dsl line via the same dsl modem connecting to the same IP address as in location 1.  The problem is that you can only connect to one or the other in location 2.  If you want to connect to the dsl location via the dsl modem, you have to disconnect the cable from the router from cable company at the Netgear switch.   Or if you want to  use cable you need to disconnect dsl modem from switch.  Also running DHCP and DNS being provided by either the DSL or cable depending on which you are using.  

What would cause one to work and the almost identical one won't?

We have Verizon FIOS triple play.  They supplied an actiontech modem router.  

The contract is ending and we are moving to Comcast internet only service.  Verizon wants just the TV boxes back - says I can keep the actiontech.

can we just plug in the coax from comcast into the actiontech and it'll work?  or is it set up / proprietary for Verizon service only?  (right now the actiontech is fed from the Verizon optical box with a cat 5 on the WAN port, but it has a coax connector also.)

Again, we're looking to use this for just the internet only service

Thanks!

Hello Everyone!

We had some security cameras installed and the installer asked me to open port 8000 for the dvr.  We have a Sonicwall 1260 Pro and I followed the instructions for port forwarding.  I created the service for both TCP/UDP, port 8000 and then created the group.  I used the public server wizard to allow public access to the camera ip.  After everything was complete I used the site, http://www.yougetsignal.com/, to check if port 8000 was open.  Unfortunately, the port is still closed.  I'm stuck figuring what I could be doing wrong.  We do have 2 static ips for the site.  The other ip is used for the fax machine line.  i don't know if this could cause the problem.  Any help is appreciated.

Router: SonicWall 1260 Pro
ISP: Cox
WAN: 72.205.202.66
Camera IP: 192.168.168.62
Port: 8000

I am trying to connect to a VPN using a Virgin Media and each time I try it states an error message. I was wondering if there is an settings within the router that need to be enabled/disabled? I would be grateful with any ideas. Thanks

Whoa, whoa, whoa... Apparently in West Virginia, being a State Senator is a part time job. Which means that a State Senator likely has to work a normal, private-sector job. A job for a company that might have a strong opinion about a particular vote. A company that then might fire the State Senator after they voted in a way the company didn't like... Uh... Conflict of interest much?

What do you think? Is this system broken? How would you fix this?

I don't have a problem with being in the $65 to $100K range. I do have a problem with paying a pension.  How many businesses have that anymore?  It's a lot for the tax payers to be on the hook for that kind of money (In Illinois).

There's very few employers that would allow someone to be gone for six months of the year and only work half time the other six months, which is the normal time demands of a Minnesota state legislator, so I’m having a hard time imagining what these part-time legislators would do for a career.     When I was in the Army National Guard employers didn't even care for me being gone one weekend a month and two weeks a year.

At those salaries I'm surprised we don't hear more stories about bribery, corruption, and employer conflict of interest.

As a side note when Jesse 'The Body' Ventura was governor he frequently refereed pro wrestling matches.  No conflict of interest there as I don't think it would affect the state if 'Bruno the Midnight Stalker' or 'The Bushwackers' won.   I still think it would have been great if he hired Axe and Slash as his state budget directors.
