    Blocking DNS versus Redirecting DNS

    By simply blocking DNS, any systems using a DNS server that is not yours, will simply not work. You can then monitor your firewall logs for outbound requests on port 53 that are blocked and find your source

    Blocking DNS versus Redirecting DNS

    Use the firewall to block port 53 and 853 then do an allow rule and point it to your PFSense box, as Farva put above. This way nothing can bypass DNS, unless it starts using DNS over HTTPS, then you are screwed. Do not do a redirect if you are trying to clean our adware. You could also use...

    MS SQL Server in VMware Cluster

    Burticus Deployed 32 nodes VxRail across 4 clusters, just under $3 million in hardware, one cluster specifically for SQL only VMs. "If you're using a NAS for iscsi, or using Vsan.... the performance is going to suck." this is not true either, if anything performance is better as you eliminate...

    Gaming PC... designed around storage??

    Do Raid 10, raid 5 has too much over head and SHOULD NOT be used for large TB spinning rust drives, for SSD sure, Raid 5 is fine. But spinning rust Raid 10 or Raid 6, raid 5 is dead and you will lose data on a rebuild over 12TB 100% The strain of a rebuild on raid 5 and even 6 is what kills that...

    scalpers starting to return cards LOL

    gerardfraser It is more the annoyance than someone went out, bought an item, with no intention to keep it and only to then try and sell it to make profit, thus denying someone who actually wanted said product for their own use. Now on that though, if people simply stopped buying scalped prices...

    6800 / XT Review Round Up

    GoodBoy yes and no, they want to show the maximum performance from either platform and to do that you need to have the ideal and properly tuned systems.

    PBX System Recomendations?

    Should be, but many people do not. They open up their SIP ports to the internet so people at home can use the PBX or soft phones on other devices, they use simple pass codes for end user devices, or the same one for all devices which can be brute forced and now someone is in and selling your...

    Radeon 6000 series speculation

    5150Joker Which is interesting because on the 17th at about 10PM MDT time they had 3 models , 2 showed back ordered while 1 showed in stock, I got it into my cart but upon signing in, it was then gone, so either their web team is not too smart... (could be bcause their "in stock" filter always...

    scalpers starting to return cards LOL

    Or did you think they are just saying they are going to return it, to instead get someone going "oh crap! i better buy it now, cause if they return it then someone else is going to get it and I have no chance!"

    Apple apps on Big Sur bypass firewalls and VPNs — this is terrible

    packet loss/latency monitoring inside and outside house

    once that connection leaves your ISP - there is nothing they or you can do really. You could find ISP or flakey nodes along the way, but no one will do anything about it. Doing a traceroute to the game servers if you know the IPs is one way to see, assuming all nodes respond to icmps. Is that...

    You know.... I thought I wanted a 3080. But. If AMD comes through with stock...

    I am hoping so, hopefully the stock curbs the miners from screwing everyone else again. I had already accepted that I likely wont be getting a new card in my hands until maybe Jan 2021 if i am lucky, this old RX580 is just starting to really show its age now.

    Clean Windows install from USB with existing license

    Windows 10 saves your info, it will likely register again on its own if you just change the SSD. If not, Jellybean magic key finder will pull your key from the OS. If you have the Windoiws 7 key, you can clean install Win 10 and use the win 7 key to activate it still.
