I want to be able to test how my web site looks from outside my firewall. And I'd like to be able to specify https:// and I'd like to be able to use IP address OR domain name. What's the best site for this? Is there one?

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?
When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

I'm running older cisco swithces, 2960, 3750, etc...
I configured ntp via:
ntp server 192.5.41.40
Type: clock timezone PST -7 0

But I was thinking, I should use hostname instead, so I tried to use time.google.com, but I keep on getting a "translating" error.

Any ideas how to fix that?

hi guys

I've installed a trial version of the network performance monitor from Solarwinds. However, it only discovered printers and switches/routers.

Can it discover PC's? Or do you need agents installed on them for it to discover those?

Thanks for helping

I'm at a client which has an Internet feed from their Israel office which egresses in NYC. Nobody seems to know why it was put in that way. Might any experts on here with middle east experience know why you might want to egress on the other side of the Atlantic rather than just using a local ISP? Or at least Europe? Security issue? Tax issue? Something else??

In the search tool - you can select source or destination address that EQUALS, NOT EQUALS, IS EITHER, IS NEITHER. But what I haven't figured out is how to search by subnet. e.g. show me all the traffic with Destination in the 10.12.67.0/24 subnet. Is that possible?

I have custom the CFS URL filtering on my new Sonicwall TZ300. It works fine from LAN to WAN.

Try to customize the same setting from my WLAN to WAN but it doesn't block those prohibted URLs as expected. Any idea ? Is there a place in Sonicwall to check where it is passed or blocked ?

Thx

I'm sure this probably isn't possibly, but is there a way to map 2 different network drives to the same drive letter?
The only way I can see doing it is to change the drive letter for one of network drives. Suggestions?

What is the process to logon to or reset the logon username and password for a SonicWALL TZ600 router when the logon information isn't known?

We don't want to reset any information on the router we simply want to logon to it or reset the username and password.

We have physical access to this router.

How can this be done?

can I ask a few basic questions in relation to Symantec backup exec.

1) what is the underlying database which stores all the configs, e.g. sql server or something else?

2) where is the management console can you see which accounts are authenticated for access? is access based on windows logins or accounts specific to backup exec?

3) in terms of the management console configuration, what needs to be backed up?

4) and is there an easy way to export all the current settings, e.g. jobs/schedules, backup selections per server (e.g. which drives) alert configurations and recipients, out to a single file for offline analysis?

5) is it application aware, e.g. by default does the standard package have the ability to backup exchange, SQL, AD, sharepoint etc.

what is the correct terminology used to get an a top level view and oversight of network infrastructure in use in your private networks, e.g. firewalls, proxies, routers, switches, wireless controllers etc. I would like to request a copy for asset management and CMDB purposes to see what interacts/depends on what, but need some idea on the correct terminology for such a diagram/document.

Dear, I got this error from today morning. All the servers in this network range could not be accessed like attached screenshot.

When I tried to access these servers from the same ISP (which provide this network range to us), the servers COULD be accessed; but when I tried from other 2 ISPs, they COULD NOT be accessed.

The servers are Window Server 2012R2 Standard, have Kaspersky, Firewall but they are configured properly, nothing change (this error started from today morning)

Can you please suggest?

we are doing some risk assessment work on backup processes from a risk management perspective (we have no responsibility for doing them ourselves), aside from servers, which host the critical data/files, what other devices in a network need considering in backup policies, so we can interview the department responsible to see that they are included/tested.

what documentation would you expect to see an IT department have in place specific to their backup/restore processes? I am trying to get a better idea of the process from a risk and compliance angle, but need to identify either some useful probing questions for the team who do backups, or request some documentation that you would expect to be in place.

This is using APC Smarts-up 6000 with a network management card AP9631. A shutdown agent software called PCNS - Powerchute Network Shutdown v4.2. One of the server that connected directly to this UPS is, a Citrix XenServer 6.0. This XenServer (as a host) has 5 servers, 4 being MS Windows 2008 R2 server, and 1 CentOS 6.6 server.

I heard that we may have to have a dedicated physical Windows server, installed with Citrix XenCenter mgmt, so as you have to use the xe.exe, plus a USB cable connected from this server to UPS? Does all the above VMs need to install with PCNS? Please show step-by-step how the whole thing can be setup in order to be shutting down upon power failure.


Thanks in advance.

Dear Zealots, is there any method to observe, monitor the traffic from one (or multiple) IP address (es) to a IP address?
We are using Cisco Router 3925, Switch 3560, 3750, 2960
Many thanks in advance,

We have fluctuating internet speeds. This is a new server install and workstations are all windows 7. AV is installed and all PCs are clean. DNS forwarders set up to ISP DNS not gateway.
Providers have run line checks and reported this:

Packet loss has occurred over the last week as a result of latency being experienced.
On checking the router we can see that the service is being overutilised on the upload and not the download, the only information we can see is that this is SSL traffic which doesn't give us much definitive info as to what type of data is being sent.  this can often be caused by automated back-up software being run amongst other things however we'd recommend a local capture to be setup on site to ascertain what is causing this issue.

We don't have any online back. There are lots of products to capture network traffic but can anyone recommend one that it easy to use - I need to confirm if we have some rogue hardware over this small network of just 8 PCs?

Hi, I have a problem with my website(dealclik.us) pinging and loading webpages, this website is loading properly but except for one customer it is redirecting to xyz.xyz

I have talked to hosting providers, they are not able to fix this as they could not see any problem with the website. Please help me in fixing this. I asked that particular customer to restart their router, they have a static IP, they restarted the router but the issue is not fixed, how to fix this? please help!!

Thanks in advance.

We have difficulties getting monthly downtimes from business & applications teams.

Beside using HA/clustering where we patch one side, swing over (incurring several seconds
or minutes of downtime) & patch the other side, what are the ways people deploy patches
with no or minimal downtime?

I guess Tandem's  Non-Stop Himalaya  could achieve this but what we have here are:
a) AS400 or OS/400 R7
b) Windows 2008 R2 & 2012
c) UNIXes (Solaris, AIX, RHEL)
d) Cisco switches/routers
e) Checkpoint & Juniper firewalls


What is TrendMicro's  virtual patching & does it help minimize downtime for patching?

Hello,
     We use RealVNC to to monitor a couple of PCs that are at a remote location. We have never had a problem using it but since upgrading the firmware on our  Sonicwall NSA 220 the firewall now stops the connection with the following alert: IPS Prevention Alert: MISC RealVNC Authentication Bypass, SID: 5828, Priority: Medium. How can I stop the firewall from blocking these events?

Thank you

I have a DC running Server 2008 Standard.  I am replacing it with a new server running 2016 Standard.  Can I migrate after upgrading the schema to 2016?  Do I have to go through 2012 first on a different server?  

If not, please provide a brief breakdown of the process.  The 2008 Server is 64bit.

thank you

how are configurations of cisco jabber clients centrally managed? Is there a way to centrally enabled/disable chat history logging for all clients, and can this feature be enabled/disabled in the client itself? we need to determine if it is enabled for anyone/everyone/and how that can be amended for all users centrally. client is currently 11.7.1.
