Around the time some of our traffic dipped to our site - I saw a number of changes of BGP path with lots of prepended AS's indicating less preferred routes. If those changes were beyond our directly connected ISP, what is the best way to find out why the path changed at that time? Is there a way to find out? There were perhaps 10 path changes in 10 minutes before things got back to normal.

Hi there!

I have a development written in .NET/C# standard (not .NET Core) that connects to a Rest API for fetching records of my customer's business. In other to login I have automated sending login form using NHtmlUnit, when I get an authorization token, I use RestSharp for fetching the data. The program runs well when I run on my development machine, however, when I deploy the the production environment (in this case, Azure), I get the following exception exception:

I recently started with cable internet service after being with FIOS.  Maybe the drop from the pole is pre-existing.  

There's the lightning arrester then the cable comes right into the house into a netgear CM 400 cable modem that I bought (it was cheap and says it was docsis 3 compatible which is what the ISP says I need.

Things working great for a couple months.  Then in the last week, I get loss of internet for 15 minutes or so at a time, then it comes back for 1/2 day - 1 day at a time.

Cable company came out and added a 6db attenuator, checked connections.  Said signals look good.


But still having these dropouts and error messages in the modem event log. Cable company says they don't do anything with modems that aren't theirs / don't know what these errors mean.

Any advice? I am going to pop for their modem rental $5 / month, but is that the answer or is there a problem with their network / cable drop?

See the 2 screen captures of the up / down.  A load of errors in the right most columns., right?

the event log:

We have AT&T MIS 10Gbps Ethernet circuit with speed throttled to 2Gbps. We have 10Gbps fiber connection from AT&T router to our fortinet firewall 600D 10G port. Is their a way to test internet speed over 1Gbps? We don't have any device or NIC with more than 1 Gig. How to test it?

Hi

I'm going to file my blog trademark again. Lame, but I neglected to do the final step one time, because I was so annoyed with the seeming endless ( unstoppable) billings. It felt like a Nigerian scam. Truly, I was suspicious and concerned.

Anyway, forget about it. I'm going to file again and there are 3 options. Does it matter which one I use? - for a blog name trademark? Also, would a logo filing be done later? The costs are complicated?  What will they be?

This is the initial page - notice the feeling-to-be-never-ending fees,      here

Thanks

I have a Synology NAS Server with a 500gb Hard drive connected and a Nvidia shield TV box/console.
Both the devices have the PMS (Plex Media Server) installed.

What I want to do is watch IPTV through plex. Ideally I would like to have the IPTV installed on the PMS that is on my Synology NAS Server as that is on and running all the time,  so that I can watch IPTV on my android phone when out of the house.

Does anyone know where to manually find the plugin folder on the Synology NAS Server or if not on there then where the plugin folder is on the Nvidia shield TV?

Also, can anyone recommend a stable IPTV channel for plex which I can use to load the IPTV playlist m3u?

Thank you...

Dear Team, we are suffering the slow problem of Email Exchange 2016: Send from Exchange server is OK, but receive is slow; which ever have or does not have attachments.

We have Avast installed in Exchange server, everything in default mode, not sure which Exchange part should be added to AV's exclusion.

Is there any other way for tuning or increasing the speed (except increase the bandwitdth, we are in Leased line link: 30 Mb/s International + 50 Mb/s Domestic)?

Many thanks as always!

I have fortinet 600C with WAN interface connected to AT&T router (1 GigE). We are in process to upgrade AT&T MIS circuit from 1Gig to 10Gig. The speed is going to be throttled to 2Gig. What are my options with Fortinet 600C to get 2Gig link speed? Do we have to get two cables going from AT&T or we have to replace the fortinet? What is recommended or what should we do?

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

I have a 2012 R2 IIS 8.5 Server that is running a web site for the application Kaseya.  I am trying to lock it down so depreciated ciphers are disabled and I would like to reorder them in a more secure fasion.  I have attempted to make the changes to the schannel key in the registry (didnt Work).  I have used Narcos IISCrypto and I have ran Powershell scripts to try and recreate all my keys.  I also used group policy to decide the cipher order.  Nothing has worked.  No matter if I have every cipher disabled or even protocol, they still show that they are in use.  I am scanning the server using Qulays ssl scan.  Has anyone ever ran in to this issue?  I have had no problem doing this on other application web servers in my organization, but this one seems as if the protocol and ciphers settings are hard coded somewhere other than the registry.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.  I'm wondering if the web application is forcing it somehow and my registry settings have no effect.  I just have never seen this happen, nor can I find any reference on the internet.    Just so everyone is aware, I have restarted after making the reg changes.  Unfortunately, the same protocols and ciphers are always enabled.

My computer is Windows 10 latest update, ASUS laptop using a USB to Ether adapter.
I plugged my computer into the router but I am not getting Internet. Can someone help me fix/diagnose this problem? I can get access using the wireless but that is very weak signal and not consistent, so I want to connect by wire.
Thanks

I mentioned blocking web sites because that's what EE focused on. But where is any evidence that "Without it, sites like ours could be censored, slowed down, or forced to charge extra fees"? NONE. Is something like that theoretically possible? Yes. Is there any realistic likelihood of it happening, and not being immediately rolled back by customer protest? No. EE and other net-neut advocates are conjuring bogeymen. And complaining about hidden charges is confusing the issue--that's not a net-neut matter, but ordinary customer protection that other laws cover.

A couple of years ago, Consumer Reports magazine put out a sob story about some small business down South that depended on the Internet for its business and was afraid that without net-neut, they could be blocked and lose their customers. Anyone who really thinks ISPs are spending their time looking for small businesses to destroy is delusional. That business is far more at risk from Google changing its ad policies. I'm personally dealing with such an issue right now; Google has decided that advertising free software is a security risk, and even though I've provided certification that the free software is trial software for our own application, there are no hitchhiking apps, and we've been using Google for nearly 10 years, they've suspended my site from all Google advertising, severely limiting my ability to reach new customers. Net-neut doesn't help me in the slightest on this. Google scares me more than Comcast.

Above I linked to examples of broadband providers intentionally blocking their customers from using certain connections (while denying it), throttling them (in deceptive ways), deceptively billing them and favoring their own content services over other 3rd parties'.

Their own customers. People who generally have no other Internet option and even if they did wouldn't swallow ~$150 ETF, new equipment/activation fees, and a phone call with a retention specialist, in protest.

And you think they're unlikely to do the same thing to edge providers? They already are. Those fees will be passed on to the customer (you & I) and if the edge provider doesn't pay-to-play, then I guess we'll just sit here and watch the *buffering* that we paid our hard earned money to see.

Hello Experts - I am running an internal web based application called Deltek Vision on an instance of Server 2012 R2.  I would like to be able to make this available over the internet.  My firewall is a Fortigate 90D.  I took a peek at how the Exchange server was configured and tried to duplicate the logic for the Vision server since both are using http.  I created an Object for the Vision server using it's IP address, created two virtual IPs which is forwarding a spare public IP address on ports 80 (http) and 1433 (SQL), then duplicated the policy for Exchange to allow traffic to flow.  So far I'm getting no response which is where I'm stuck.  I'm not sure if I'm missing something on the routing side or if there is something else in IIS that needs to be done to allow access from the internet.

I'd appreciate any advice getting this working!

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!

I got a requirement from my client that he wishes to encrypt/ password protect some of the documents, before sending over to another user in another regional office.

By not writing the password into the email body.

How can the user in another regional office knows the password to decrypt/ open the protected documents?

What approach should be adopted? Is there any standard/ algorithm I can refer to? But we prefer not to use any 3rd party software/ utility.

Thank you.
