I'm trying to run a search query on my Synology NAS recycle bin folder, but the search option is greyed out. Even when I run an advanced search, there is no option to search the recycle bin folder. Is there an option I can enable somewhere to search it, or am I stuck sifting through it to find files manually?

Thanks!

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

One of my clients wants to hard wire an ethernet connection to his other house. The houses are about 40 feet apart, and there is a 2ft wide path I will have to go through to get to the other house.

I know point to point wireless is an option, but my client insists on getting a wired connection. This is my first job wiring outside, so I'm brainstorming on how I can get it done. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I work in a corporate environment. I am based in the USA, corporate IT is in Germany. They image all of our computers via Matrix42. We have received a batch of new HP Elitebook 850 G5 laptops. I have them on our network and powered on. I have accessed the BIOS via F10 and have found that the PXE boot is enabled, but Germany does not see it. When the laptop boot, normally I would see the startup screen indicating IP addresses, DHCP info, etc. With the new batch, all I see is 'Protected by HP Secure Start'. I have access to the internet, so I know I am on the network. I can run IPCONFIG /all and see all my network info.

How do I configure this laptop for Network PXE boot?

Thanks in advance.

We have a location that needs to have a backup WiMax signal in the event that our primary internet goes down.  It seems our provider is suggesting SD-WAN along with the backup line.  Is this necessary?  Is there another way to get a device that cuts over to the backup line to supply bandwidth when the primary goes down.  Or should I consider SD-WAN along with the backup line?  Any comments?

I have Charter Spectrum service here in western Oregon. I need port 9000 to be open to the internet on my pc, because we set up debugging on our remote web server and it needs to get through 9000 on my pc so it can talk to my Netbeans IDE. The Spectrum tech has no idea how to set that up. Ive tried in the router they gave me, a Sagemcom Fast 5260, but the port forwarding rule I set up just will not work. So, Im thinking about getting a better router than the cheapie they gave me. What's the best router available that will allow port forwarding?

Need to save money on Verizon Portable MiFi

I spend about $45/month for unlimited bandwidth and wonder if I can save money with pay-as you go?

I use almost none each month.

Who can I switch to and still have the Verizon cell network, or similar?

Thanks

We have a new building and I'm wondering what is the best to use, either a ladder rack or conduit for running about 70 cat6a cables and some fiber cables about 70 foot distance and about 20 ft in elevation from the basement to the 1st floor.  There is a hall way and 2 or 3 rooms between my server room and data closet.  There are tiles in the ceiling.
My general contractor is stating that ladder trays would be best and my low voltage is saying conduit is best.

I'm looking at it from a long term  situation, I want to make it as easy as possible for me to pull more cables as needed.  In the past, I had a conduit that was full of cables, and when I tried to pull more, my run got stuck and I couldn't pull any more, had to get a company to bore and install new conduit, so I don't want to experience the same situation.
With a ladder rack  or wire basket, I'll have to pop the tiles every 10 feet or so and get on ladders, so I guess it's more work, but I wont' have to worry about not able to pull more cables in the future.

Any suggestions?

Is there any downside by using a flat Cat6 cable instead of round Cat5 or Cat5e cables?  Other than increased bandwidth, I'm not really sure of the difference.

Thank you!

When purchasing a cable modem, I know that the Number 1 X Number 2 (i.e. 16x4) is the downstream and upstream channels that it is capable of handling.

However, is it possible to correlate those numbers to the speed package that we are receiving?  I don't want to over or under buy a device for the current tier we are on, which is 200/20.

Also, what are the opinions on DOCSIS 3.0 vs. DOCSIS 3.1?  Do we really need 3.1 to future proof ourselves?

Just met with carrier tech.  He left me bunch of blue sc-lc fiber cables.
 Mentioned blue is a new yellow and aqua is a new orange.   Better throughput and better flex.
 is there a specs somewhere to learn about these new cables?

Hi Experts

Could you point the alternatives to assemble a LAN using Windows Server and clients?

Coaxial cables, optical fiber are options?

If so what is needed to implement it?

Thanks in advance.

Dear Experts!  I stepped into a video surveillance camera deployment.  The issue is we are using Zone Minder, an open source IP Video capture software, and we have been having issues with.   I need to look at NVR (Network Video Recorder) alternatives.  Anyone have any recommendations?  I need to make sure it's a solid platform, we can set up a support contact, easily to export footage, motion detection, pre-event recording and allow for use of 3rd party IP cameras.  We have 4 sites, 14 cameras at two, 47 at our main campus and 28 at our second campus.

We have an HP 2530-24G-PoE+ (J9773A) where our port 11 keeps going on-line and then off-line. The device that we have connected to it is a wireless AP that uses POE. When I go into the logs of the switch all it says is that Port 11 is now on-line and then the next line is that it has gone offline. With no other information. What can I do to find out what's wrong with that port? I'm still very new to programming on a switch.

I am setting up our infrastructure to enable remote phones on a new phone system we installed. The phone vendor requirements were fairly simple, port forward UDP 443 to a device on our DMZ(the virtual machine). Easy, or so I thought.



Everything looks good from the Firewall end. If I plug in the phone, I can see the traffic hit the firewall, and be forwarded to the device lets say is 11.11.11.11. No issues I can see from the firewall end. It's a Barracuda NG F280, I have gone over it over and over with Barracuda support and they see nothing from their end.



The issue is that traffic never hits 11.11.11.11. I have set up a monitoring VM on my DMZ with wireshark, never see the traffic. The VM has a packet monitor built in so I can create packet captures on the interface directly, never see the traffic. If I run a netcat cmd for UDP 443, I see nothing. I see other traffic. If I ping 11.11.11.11 from anywhere else on the network, I see it. There is nothing between this device and the Firewall, except the VMWare hypervisor.



I am at a loss at this point. My Firewall vendor says it isn't on their end, my phone vendor says it isn't on theirs. I believe that to be the truth, but I don't know what else it could be. Does anyone have any ideas? Only thing I can think of is something in VMWare, but I have never seen VMWare block traffic like that before.

Some more info:

Seems localized in some way to port number. If I change my forwarding rule to port 3300 instead…

I am a network admin and looking at our switching infrastructure. I feel like it is not efficiently built, and it is aging. It consists of HP Procurve switches, some of them are V1910's, newer ones are 2530's. (Several were purchased to support a VoIP phone system). All switches are connected with trunks- this takes up 4 ports per trunk and only communicates at linespeed. What I think needs to happen is I need to build a new core switch infrastructure, remove the aging equipment, relegate the newer switches to edge roles for client connections, and select adequate infrastructure for the core equipment... whatever I get, I am planning to use cascades so we don't end up using half the ports to trunk and get better performance. Our network is not complex- we have an MPLS, an inter-building fiber link, 2 VoIP VLANs, and 3 subnets at this location. so we wouldn't need more than 8 VLAN's- right now everything except the fiber and the phones are on the same VLAN and separated by routers- I think that using the VLAN capabilities of the new infrastructure could replace routing equipment and optimize the network further. So my question is, assuming we are keeping the newer HP Procurves (The newest are actually Aruba's), which have GBIC's but no cascade ports, should we use Cisco's for the core switches, or stay brand-consistent with HPe/Aruba, which will become the edge switches? Any model or feature recommendations?
Thanks for the help!

I'm looking at installing 14 switches in a data closet and I wanted to know exactly how many amps will that draw at startup, to ensure I have enough power circuits.
I've looked at the technical specs found below, but I'm trying to calculate exactly how many amps each switch will draw, so I know if I need 2 or 3 circuits?
https://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960x/hardware/installation/guide/b_c2960x_hig_appendix_0100.html

I'm planning to have (7) 2960X -48-FPD-L in a stack, and each one on a APC.  Also was trying to figure out if I need a 20amp or 30amp circuit, I'm guess if I get a 30 amp circuit,
it gives me more options for the APC to use.

Any thoughts?

This server will host 200 network cables and many servers.
Our plan is to setup one two-post rack and two four-post racks (or cabinets). And here are the questions

1.  Should we install all the patch panels AND the network switches on the two-post rack? Or, install only the patch panels on the two-post rack, install the switches on the four-post racks (or cabinets) along with the servers?

2. Should we use four-post racks or cabinets?
I understand cabinets offer one more layer of security. Is there any other benefit to use cabinets?

3. Should we install the two-post rack in the middle of the two four-post racks (or cabinets)? Or, this doesn't matter?

4. Any other thoughts or suggestions??

Thanks!

Hello Experts,
I have a computer named "Toshi-A"  (Win 7)
its local IP: 192.168.0.14
all its drives are shared with "everyone" "full privileges"

when I try to access from other computers (WIN10)
using
\\Toshi-A\c    ----- I get 0X80070035 Path not found

But when I use
\\192.168.0.14\c
Works just fine.

What do I do to fix this?

Regards,
