    Security between servers

    I've taken on the task of revamping a small web-hosting network and there is one area that I am unsure of the best route to take for security. Currently there are shared hosting plans and dedicated servers. The dedicated servers are Windows-based and the clients are given TS access to their...

    A media player - cache content in local temp path?

    Does anyone know of a media player application that will load the contents of a media file (mainly avi/mpeg) into a temp file while the file is open? I ask because all my content is on a remote (file) server and when watching something, scanning around is slower than local copies when going over...

    Copy files - destination full of white space...

    So I got my new server/NAS put together and have run into a weird problem. Last night I copied all the contents over and the size matches up in both locations. Going through files, there are some folders that have corrupt file contents - the files (text, pictures, etc) have white space in them...

    Most efficient use of disk array

    What do you guys propose as the most efficient way to use my drives? I have a lian li v354 system beng built that is a new/larger home server and NAS. While it's a file server, I'd also like to do backups to the server, from my numerous home workstations, better than what I'm doing now (manual)...

    Portable/compact mousing surface

    I can't stand touchpads or pointing sticks so I'd like to be able to use a mouse, but I need a miniature mousing surface that's made out of a hard material. Does anyone make anything like this that is around 6x9" in dimensions, or preferably slightly smaller?

    Help diagnose router problem

    I have a Linksys WRT350N that I've been using for years but yesterday it just turned off. The power LED On the power brick was off so I swapped in a 12v/6A power supply and it would also turn off when connected to the router. I found that when plugging the original power supply back into the...

    Compact file server case (another thread)

    A search has not turned up any decent results and the Chenbro ES34069 case I was going to use turned out to have a flaky seller and I decided to have them cancel the transaction. Noisy power supply, case quality, and price have driven me away. I'm fine with ITX and not having hotswap...

    MATX case with external psu/no 5 1/4

    Does anyone know of a case that is about the side of a matx case but can take low profile cards WITHOUT an internal power supply? I need to find a chassis to fit this motherboard into, using a single pci-e expansion board for now (Texas Instruments chipset Firewire), a DC-DC converter placed...

    MATX board with quick POST?

    Does anyone have any recommendations on a Core2 motherboard that has a quick POST? I'm looking for a micro ATX motherboard that can begin loading into Windows in less than 10 seconds, preferably less than 5. I know a few have existed that store BIOS settings in NAND or something, and not...

    Slot Load Optical Drive Behavior?

    I just picked up a slot loading DVD/RW drive and had a couple questions for anyone with experience with pc-based slot loading drives. I feel that mine (Pioneer DVR-TS08) may not be behaving properly. First, how much noise are they supposed to make when inserting or ejecting discs? This thing...

    No POST

    So I had to pull a cpu out of a system a week ago and got a replacement processor for it. I popped it in and I get no POST. I put the old cpu in, still no POST. After putting all the parts in another pc, I have basically got it down to the motherboard being at fault. Using a Port80 card, I get a...

    TRUE - poor cooling even at 1.07v

    So I have a TRUE that I've reseated and whatever, along with adding a washer to the mounting brackets. My Q9550 can do 1.07v (the lowest my board will go - set to 1.1v in the BIOS) at 3.4GHz but I get a load temperature of 68ºC. At 1.175v (stock), I also get ~70ºC load. At 3.8GHz with 1.175v I...

    Single server - poor downstream...

    We've got a web/mail server that apparently cannot download at any speed higher than like 20KB/sec. SMTP grabs files extremely slow. We can FTP files up to the server at 150KB/sec. The server can upload at 800KB/sec. It runs Windows 2003 Web Edition and runs only IIS/SMTP. A server next to it...

    Ratio Actual: 6????

    I've got a P5Q-EM and for whatever reason, the bios is thinking my processor has an actual ratio of 6x, while it shows that the max is 8.5 (a q9550). Any idea why this is? I cannot get speedstep to work on here as with "Auto" it sets me to 6x, even under load. If I set it manually to 8.5x...

    Low Profile/short depth cables

    Does anyone know where to get some SATA cables that are very shallow in terms of how far they stick out from the back of the drive(s)? I'm looking for both data and power but all the 90 degree ones are still slightly too thick - I need something as thin as possible to fit into some very tight...

    401+ Mhz, bad POST

    I'm seeing if any of you have any ideas on my problem. I've got a Shuttle SP25P2V2 with an E0 Q9550, 4x2GB G.Skill PC2-8000 ram, a Visiontek HD4850, 1.5GB and 400GB Barracudas, and the assorted other less important things. I can run everything at stock voltage at 400x8.5 with no issues. I bump...

    NSK1380 + 1U PSU?

    I've been staring at pictures of this thing for awhile now and not sure if this would work or not. Does anyone think a 1.6" wide 1U power supply would fit anywhere into this case without too much issue? Dimensions are around 1.6x4x12" for these power supplies and they come in sizes up to 500w or...

    Smallest possibility with HOST USB?

    I'm not too sure what to look for but I need the smallest possible system that can give me access to serial port devices, even if it must use a USB to serial adapter. As far as I can see, PDA's are a no go and tablets aren't all that small. The device is to be used in-car for reprogramming...

    2003/Service Pack 2 - DEAD DOMAIN

    Yesterday another developer decided it'd be a great idea to update our domain server located on a separate network to Service Pack 2 as the ones shipping from Dell come with SP2 already loaded. After the install the entire system has gone belly up with no DNS services, authentication, or...

    PHP4/SQL page help

    At my new job, supposedly there used to be this test webpage that was put up by some guy who no longer works there. No one can tell me what it does, or how it was setup, but they want it running again. Its hosted on the same IIS 6 box that runs their production website (don't ask me why) which...

    IP KVM's

    There's very few topics on this subject here, so I'm wondering who has used IP-based KVM's, which one(s), and how do you like it/them? 8 ports is ideal since 16 servers are unlikely anytime soon and the added cost is hard to justify. Notably, anyone have experience with the Freedom9 Freeview...

    HD works, partition dead?

    I really need to get at least one file (sagetv index so it knows which shows/episodes have been recorded/watched already) off of this harddrive. It was setup into two partitions years ago and I was able to quickly retrieve all my files on the second partition without issue. The first partition...

    Black & White 2 - 6fps

    I can't seem to find anything about any of this. Just realized B&W2 has been out for awhile now so I got it, installed it, and updated it to 1.2(ATI updates). Unless I'm looking straight down on a small area of the land, where I get ~11fps, its stuck around 4-6fps all the damn time. Changing to...

    LCD backlight "shadows"

    What causes these? The display/tv looks great with bright, vibrant colors but when you get to medium shades of colors and greys, there's a bunch of vertical "shadows" in different areas of the screen. If this the light diffuser/spreader/whatever not laying completely flat against the panel...

    Edit mpeg without reencode

    Anyone know of a program that will edit a mpeg2 file WITHOUT reencoding it? If virtualdub would save to mpeg, I'd use that with "direct stream copy", but it doesn't. I just need to cut an area from the beginning and end. The mpegs are at 12mbit/sec and want to keep it at that until the final...

    Center channel audio

    I just picked up a center channel speaker to add to my 2 main towers. I've seen this at my girlfriend's also with a Sony home-theater-in-a-box, but HOW do you get music to play evenly out of the fronts AND center channel? Its gotta be some industry wide term that I don't know...because I don't...

    Just trying to find an mmorpg that was semi entertaining, not a hack & slash, but not overly complicated, while in beta years(I think) ago. It WAS a mmorpg as guys would run by and I'd see them attacking whatever (unlike guild wars) It had to have been in 2004, but there was a mmorpg posted...

Needs to have its "top"/highest side on the same side as the pump's outlet to keep air cavitation at a...

    Changing hostname from command prompt

    Does anyone know of a way to effectively change the hostname in XP (sp2 if it matters) through the command prompt? I've tried pretty much everything I can think of. Someone told me you can through netsh, but wasn't specific and I couldn't find anything that works.

    Input over network

    I'm curious, does anyone know if a program exists that'd allow you to send keyboard and mouse input over a network to a remote machine? Similar to remote sessions using remote desktop, vnc, pcanywhere, etc, but without the display coming back to the system I'm on. I'd rather not deal with a kvm...

    Older card squealing (no fan on the hs)

    I'm just curious if anyone knows why this does this. A while ago I had to take a gf2mx out of my spare/server system because it started making an annoyingly high pitched squeal(from a passively cooled heatsink). Trying it in my other system, the sound went away and the card functioned fine...
