    Faster setup for a mac based office

    File transfer and file reading were "slow". I have not experienced it myself because the NAS is dead. But it seems that the guy before me configured the macs with SMB shares. Everything else is OK for them, they got a 50/50 internet and never complained about browsing. The iomega ix-200...

    How do you store and manage passwords at work?

    In my case, we do not use shared password ever. We also use lastpass, wich require internet access, but I heard great things about keepass.

    Zyxel USG20

    I have been given a written copy of the security audit. A few comments are not accurate and I wonder on what specifications the inspector base his recommendations. I dont work there, I do bi-annual consultation. They need to have a dedicated firewall for their internet connection, which I can...
