Network Management involves issues that are independent of specific hardware or software, including email policies, upgrade planning, backup scheduling and working with managed service providers for Desktop-As-A-Service (DaaS), Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) and the like through the use of tools, coupled with manufacturer standards, best practice guidelines, policies and procedures plus all other relevant documentation. Network management also includes monitoring, alerting and reporting, management reporting, planning for device or service updates, the backup of configurations, the setting of key performance indicators and measures (KPIs/KPMs), associated service level agreements and problem records as part of the IT Service Management (ITSM) framework.

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.

hi guys

I am setting up a Excel password sheet that is protected with information regarding  our domain passwords and switches etc. With the issue of ransomware etc becoming a grander problem by the day, I am now being asked to not only create these protected password sheets on the network, but also in the cloud with providers like 'LastPass'.

Would you or have you done this and feel safe to put your passwords in a vault in the cloud?

Thanks for helping

We are baffled by a situation where two computers are unable to access a website that more than 150 other computers are accessing with a problem. These two computers are behind a common modem and router, but tracert shows the packets make it to the server. Running Wire Shark shows:
wireshark.pngOther websites on a different server (and ip) behind the same firewall are accessible from the same two computers behind the same router and modem.

To try to clear up the situation....
Two computers (running POS Ready 2009) at location A are unable to display a website on server A (running Server 2003). This is true whether using the domain or the IP Address for the server.  These same two computers are able to access a website on the Server B (running Server 2003) which is behind the same firewall as Server A.
Other computers are able to display the same website on Server A from multiple other locations with no problems.

Hello,

I have a Sonicwall TZ 300 firewall being used as a gateway router for a network. The IP address scope is 10.1.1.1-10.1.1.255 on the X0 interface.

I would like to setup another network with the SAME IP address scope of 10.1.1.1 etc.. on the X2 interface to build and test another server which is eventually going to replace the server on the X0 interface. This second network has to be isolated from the the X0 interface so the two servers/networks can exist without seeing each other. Is this possible? How can I do this if so?

I have it working now as long as I use another IP scheme (10.0.0.1...) but I want to use the same IP scope to make it easier to transition to the new server down the line.

Looking for a application I caN check out my network to see if there is a issue in loss of connects delays slow connection and if, which point and what application. Any recommendations but not something that should break my pocket.

are there any free tools which could scan a drive on a file server for potential inappropriate images, based on a nudity type calculation. I know these things exist in forensics communities but I have yet to see anything that is free. we need to do a quick scan to ensure one of our employees has not stored any inappropriate material on one of our file servers.

Dear zealots, I am configuring Routers and Switch to mitigate DDoS attacks, following this article: http://www.infosecwriters.com/Papers/HChau_Cisco-DoS-DDoS.pdf

However, when I enter "no ip directed-broadcast" into Router and Switch's interface mode, then it cannot be displayed when I hit "show run". Do you know why? My devices' version is 12.2 (Switch 3750/3560) and 15.1 (Router 3925)

And should I apply this command on VLAN interfaces in Switches?

I have many large folders on the server that I believe no one is using. I would like to set up logging over the next six months to verify no one is accessing them. Then I can safely archive the folders.

This is running on a Windows 2012 R2server.

I am finding software to report on this that is too expensive. I'd rather use windows event logging to track this or anything less than $150.

How is this set up and how do I report on this?

Hi experts

I have some laptops in a school that require strict limited control and capabilities, more so than usual due to the nature of the environment

This therefore means I have to attach a very long list of GPO's to the user accounts connected to the student OU's.

I'm wondering if applying so many GPO's will slow down the logon time significantly. We are using roaming profiles , clients on windows 8.1 , server windowsill server 2012 r2 ....

If so what's the best method to reduce logon time ....

Users have reportedly very slow logon times and I think the bandwidth in some areas of the school are a contributing factor however I'm not ruling out GPO being a big part of the issue


Any suggestion, solutions, advice and guidance welcomes

Many thanks

Hello,
I am currently upgrading my infrastructure to cat6, but in order to make this less expensive I may need to run straight across our drop ceiling (not dirrctly on tiles) without any near ceiling supports for 50 feet. so, is it allowable to hang jhooks on drop ceiling support wires? I will have a max total of 45 cat6 cables atleast 60 feet. I've only read reports of cable regulations (cabling installation maintenance site) that date back to 1997 stating laying on tiles is out but using recommended wire supports is in for a max weight regulation. but I've also been told by a electrician that anything running electricity can not be hung, even low voltage data cable. if any body can send my to updated site for regulations or let me know straight out yes/no and why.
thx

I am setting up a linux server on a small network for people to access their files, each windows computer will have local login.
I will create logins on the linux server that will be for each individual on the network.
I will map each computer with the appropriate folders that belong to those users.
How can I handle it if someone else needs to use someone else's computer and would like to access their personal files?
Should I have 2 logins, one belonging to the user of that system and a guest of some sort but how can they get to their files easily without needing me to map the drive for them? I need simple because these are not very technical people.

thanks

We have an excel file that we want two computers to have access to. We want both computers to access the actual excel document, not the excel online version.

They don't necessarily have to be able to modify it at the same exact time, just access through excel.

Is there a way to do this with OneDrive? From what I can figure out, OneDrive only works with either both computers using the online version of excel, or one using online version and other the desktop version. Can both computers use the desktop version through OneDrive.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

There have been vendors accesses via Rdp & Teamviewer with internal staffs help :
staff use a broadband (Guest network & 4G) to connect their laptop to & their LAN
to the corporate network.

How can I thoroughly trace these down & block them?

Certainly they'll need sort of accounts to login, right?

Hi,

We are looking for recommendations for a network level internet filter.
At the moment, we are using OpenDNS or draytek content filter, but neither are particularly robust.

Our main requirement is that it be a network filter in the true sense, in that there is no need to install an agent on the end-user device or have to deploy proxy settings. The above filters work at the router level.

Another nice feature, but not as essential, would be to have granular controls, rather than one policy for all.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I have configured our Nagios instance to monitor a Xerox printer with the Check_SNMP_Printer plugin (https://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Hardware/Printers/SNMP-Printer-Check/details), and am receiving information fine. The issue is that it is the wrong information. It is returning the Transfer Belt info on all checks except the paper trays (screenshot1).

If I manually run the command, I get the same response (screenshot2). I have checked the script and the Universal SNMP OIDs are correct. for my printer. If I snmpwalk the OIDs listed, they return expected output.

I am a bit at a loss as to what the issue is. I can only assume something is wrong with the logic?

Any insight i can get on this is greatly appreciated!

hi guys

Barring Microsoft' SCCM, I was looking for any other applications out there which offer you the ability to automate deployment of applications, and configurations, and enforce security rules?

Even if the latter one doesn't work, perhaps the deployment of applications across a network? Any advice or any good products you're using would be appreciated.

Thanks for helping

Need to buy a Nas server which will be used for the following purpose.

1. Backup my local server which is like 500GB ssd. Of vm.
2. Used as a central storage by each department that way everyone in the depart can access other people file.
3, I am not sure it's wise to buy 2 nas server. because I want to get a 4k tv and be able to download movies and access via the nas server straight on the TV, but this is for personal use in the office.
