    Does Comcast turn on public hotspot if you bring your own modem?

    No, it's literally impossible for them to make your router 'secretly' broadcast a separate SSID.... They would have to access the admin console from the router, which is connected to the WAN. I don't know of any routers that allow access to the admin console from the WAN port by default. Even if...

    Best way to share a network drive in windows over the internet and how to do it?

    You are going to have a bad time if you try and stream video directly from a shared folder over the internet. You would want something like Plex server serving the content, and even that will be very dependant on your upload speed. 5Mb/s is not going to cut it, and if you saturate your outbound...

    Anyone know of a hardware RDP client that works with Win10?

    Are those instructions not to downgrade the RDP version running on windows 10, so you can connect with your older thin client version? That's what I thought they were for, and what I was looking for. I assumed no changes can be made to the TC itself.

    Anyone know of a hardware RDP client that works with Win10?

    This might help. Seems they were able to downgrade the RDP version running on windows 10 to allow an older thin client to connect: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/4e6a9c2c-1214-48fa-aa5a-c286943949d6/how-can-i-downgrade-a-rdp-client-to-an-older-version?forum=posready

    Anyone know of a hardware RDP client that works with Win10?

    Yes, it's the client that gets the error. It doesn't display the error when it fails? This is the issue I'm talking about, and the fix you can make on the windows 10 box to disable the extra security to see if the thinclient can connect: On the client has the CredSSP update installed, run...

    Anyone know of a hardware RDP client that works with Win10?

    what is the protocol error? Is it that Oracle encyption error or something? If so that's an easy fix through a local group policy change.

    Intel impacted by SWAPGS vulnerability

    The worst part is they are still releasing new generation CPUs that still haven't mitigated any of the major vulnerabilities that came out the past couple years. I can't believe anyone would be considering purchasing intel at this point, since you have to neuter the shit out its performance with...

    FCC bans Robocalls-Texts

    I've been doing this for months, mainly because if you don't pick up, it fills your VM box with a bunch of blank effing messages. But it does not help at all. In fact I got 9 calls yesterday alone, all from 530 area code with the last 4 digits randomized. Such a bunch of bullshit. And the ban...

    What used to be in your wallet?

    If they found/used some unpatched zero day, that might hold water. This 'hack' was due to credentials that were not changed from admin/admin. That should be considered negligence on their part for sure, and they should get slapped with a huge fine. They are far too large to not have gone...

    Router advice on 10G LAN + fiber Internet w/ static IP

    Why are you assigning a public IP to the server itself? You should have the IP bound at the edge device, and forward the specific ports to the server itself. This is all possible with PFsense, since I'm running multiple servers at home, and none of them have a public IP assigned. That is a very...

    RAID suggested practice for Windows - home use

    It would help to know the 'alternative purposes' of the system. Freenas would still be my recomendation, and depending on your other needs, you can most likely run them in docker containers on the freenas box itself. Or virtualize freenas, and use another VM for the alternative purposes. There...

    Can someone explain Microsoft Storage Pools and when to use them

    Then it's basically just software raid with a new name. It doesn't have any features like SSD caching etc. Just simple parity.

    Can someone explain Microsoft Storage Pools and when to use them

    The basic features are 'free' but if you want to access any of the more advanced setups you have to have a datacenter OS license. They aren't available on standard.

    Intel Internal Document Details How It Will Counter the AMD Threat

    Like the latest June patches that broke the event viewer on our 2012R2/2016 servers at work?.....

    Intel Internal Document Details How It Will Counter the AMD Threat

    Until they release a generation of CPUs with hardware fixes for the critical vulnerabilities that require performance neutering software patches to mitigate, their raw performance comparison with AMD is useless......
