    I don't know if this is the right area to ask this.

    totally not interchangeable... i found this post super confusing... much better to refer to it as "powerline networking" and there is no real industry standard, that's what's so obnoxious about powerline networking... i know ubnt was looking at providing a robust powerline networking solution...

    Dealing with users who avoid screensaver/lock screen?

    internet filtering should probably be minimal, i'm ok with blocking ads at the workplace, as they're a big attack vector for malware... but you're probably right, when management wants to talk about blocking social media or other time wasters, a lot of times i push back... if you feel like your...

    Dealing with users who avoid screensaver/lock screen?

    All technical solutions to a non technical problem. I would spend 0 time on this subject and go straight to HR to report policy violations, if there is no policy you should get one made And if HR doesn't care then you shouldn't care

    i'd get 6a for if 2.5g or 5g ever end up taking off... and i thought shielding was built in to the 6a spec... although i've seen 6a that are unshielded, do these really meet the spec? basically, the only real way to make your home future proof is to run smurf everywhere.... that's what i'd...

    Switches/router not made in China?

    i'm paying attention, and i've actually been reading the articles... i've yet to see compelling evidence, nobody is providing their sources, the closest thing to somewhat compelling evidence is the cambridge lab article on how it MIGHT be possible, but this article is grasping at a tremendous...

    AMD Could Regain 30% of Global Desktop CPU Market Share in 4Q18

    i never said anything before Ryzen, so i don't know what you're talking about i'm also not anti-AMD and certainly not pro-Intel, i am just knowledgable enough to know just how entrenched the industry is in intel... not only that, but this is specifically about Desktop, which is pretty...

    AMD Could Regain 30% of Global Desktop CPU Market Share in 4Q18

    that's not vmotion... basically this will force big clusters to be all AMD or all intel... if AMD keeps the lead for long enough and intel falters for long enough, it could become an option, but right now compared to the intel offerings, there are very few AMD products out there to make this...

    AMD Could Regain 30% of Global Desktop CPU Market Share in 4Q18

    does vmotion work between AMD and intel cpus yet? AMD is notoriously weak in the datacenter, and some of the reasons for that are out of their control

    Running pfense, enable Lets Encrypt free SSL cert with Cloudfare

    no, no http exposure, your pfsense box doesn't have to http challenge like your typical internet facing web site, no web ports need to be exposed on the internet facing interfaces... allows you to stay masked if you so desire... this is about challenge response part of the auto-renewal process...

    I humbly approach for FreeNAS problem

    I wish freenas had better vm support... Been waiting for ages for a leap forward with bhyve but I get how they might want to keep this out of scope... Someone else should be working on a plug-in for it Freenas is really becoming very commercialized I fear

    Running pfense, enable Lets Encrypt free SSL cert with Cloudfare

    Thanks for posting this, I've been wondering how I might do let's encrypt with some intranet type sites... I realized it would be best with the DNS challenge, unless you want to be opening http stuff to the internet... But you need some way for the server being secured to be able to change some...

    I humbly approach for FreeNAS problem

    you should use DNS instead of coding static IPs in things... and you should probably also have a static DHCP entry in your DHCP servers for things on your network that provide a service (mmmm... servers, etc.) i generally set aside a special DHCP scope for this... so perhaps most of my client...

    Someone please explain mx records to me..

    It's a matter of weighing the risks. You are at much higher risk right now on the path you're currently on. Higher risk than you likely realize.

    I think this is probably a great topic for discussion. I can think of a lot of bad things that can happen to someone like yourself that is attempting to DIY this sort of thing. For one thing, how are you handling SPAM filtering? Are you doing domain validation? How are you gauranteeing that...

    Someone please explain mx records to me..

    Running a mail server is not for amateurs. It's a fun project, but you'll run into problems much larger than this. Why not use Protonmail, it's free. I'm willing to bet a huge percentage of people you send mail to mark you as a spammer. You kind of sound like a crazy person if I'm being...

    Someone please explain mx records to me..

    you set up an MX record with whoever's doing your DNS, specifically, whoever your nameservers are with... i would probably start with your registrar, a lot of times they'll provide nameservers for you with their registration services... for joe shmoe with his joeshmoe.com domain, this is...

    FTP being attacked?

    good firewall software or ftp software could also ban users after too many failed login attempts you could also ban some typical overseas ip blocks and get rid of a lot of noise as well, as long as you don't need chinese, russian, or malaysian people to be able to log on to your FTP

    Why aren't routers with preconfigured IOT network segregation a thing?

    Why aren't routers with preconfigured IOT network segregation a thing?

    Also segmenting IoT from your home network breaks things like smartphone integration, or PC integration without specific firewall rules... also, IoT devices should be locked down in their access to the internet as well... Basically, people don't have the technical knowledge or even the desire...

    FTP being attacked?

    he said SFTP with a cert, and you can absolutely use SFTP (SSH) with a user cert (key) instead of username/password... so his statement is still completely valid you're thinking of SSL certs
