    need GenControl alternative for Windows 7

    windows shares don't work without password. This uses admin shares to copy over and run the program so it won't work without passwords.

    need GenControl alternative for Windows 7

    this software doesn't have ability to set the credentials for the connecting user, it will just use whatever user is currently logged in. So in order for this to work properly you need to run under account that has admin access to the system you're trying to connect.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    basically it constantly spits out vmxnet3s: [ID 654879 kern.notice] vmxnet3s:0: getcapab(0x200000) -> no everything seems to work fine so probably ok to ignore. Network speeds seem fine, but I need to do some 10Gbe tests this weekend

    I got vmware tools working on solaris 11. Used a trick though, install solaris express 11, install vmware tools from esxi 5 U1 then perform upgrade from se 5.11 to solaris 11.11 vmware tools continue to work on solaris 11 :D

    Configuration of two HP 1810g-24, trunk, dhcp.

    yes the 3550 is a 100mb but you can get 1gb uplinks on it, he doesn't have to use the other ports for anything. A single 1gb connections is all that is required for the switch to do the routing. And at the price 3550s sell on ebay it's a lot more affordable than 1910 or any other L2+ switch, not...

    Configuration of two HP 1810g-24, trunk, dhcp.

    u can use your asus rt-n66u, not sure if the asus software can do what's needed but wrt or tomato both can. If you want cheap l3 device cisco 3550 switch is great way to go, u can get one on ebay for less than $100 I actually have 2 spare 3550s so if you want to pick 1 up pm me

    Cisco router disable SSH?

    Configuration of two HP 1810g-24, trunk, dhcp.

    ya what ^ said, u need a layer 3 device to do routing between vlans. So either a l3 switch or setup router on a stick. In your case you would need to setup the asus router with multiple virtual interfaces 1 per vlan

    anyone running solaris 11.11? I had major issues joining it to a domain, it would not set computer account password, finally after x number of tries it took. Wish my pool wasn't v31 so I can switch to something based on illumos.

    Cisco router disable SSH?

    don't disable ssh just setup acl to only allow access from internal subnet, that will make ssh inaccessible from the outside so PCI scan won't detect it

    ZFS Nas for VMWare

    just because it's on separate vlan doesn't mean u can't access it through smb from your desktop etc. As long as you have something that can route traffic between vlans (router, l3 switch etc) you can access the storage. You could also fire up a virtual machine and put it on same vlan as storage...

    some 10GBe and switch advise

    Actually the Cisco Catalyst 2960S-24TD-L has 2 10gbase-T ports if you want sfp+ the cheapest way to get few ports is hp 2910al + 10gbe sfp+ modules (J9008A) switch is ~1700 + $650 per 2 port sfp+ module (2x modules max) you can use that with sfp+ direct attach cables so if you don't need long...

    ESXi 5 VLAN tagging?

    u need to make both changes. vlan 1 for management network and change pvid for port on the switch. After u change pvid on the port make sure that the port is still member of vlan 1 and is tagging. Also what handles dhcp on your network? is it another vm server or physical one?

    ESXi 5 VLAN tagging?

    ESXi 5 VLAN tagging?

    you lost connection to esx because ur "managment network" has no vlan tag which means it takes native lan of switch port (25 in ur test) change it to 1 and it should work in vmware 4095 means that the port group will accept and tag traffic on any vlan but it's upto the hosts on that port group...

    ESXi 5 VLAN tagging?

    port 9 is member of vlan1 as tagged but also has pvid (native vlan) of 1 so that might override each other. Try setting pvid on port 9 to something other than 1 or 2
  36. A

    ESXi 5 VLAN tagging?

    NJ is right default vlan on the switch is not tagged. Make the native vlan on the switch port connected to vmware something other than 1 or 2, that will force the port to tag vlan1 and vlan2 traffic.

    Need help with cisco 1811 dual wan port forward config

    ya i agree, i think what happens is the packets come in through wan2 but go out via wan1 so they get dropped. Unfortunately I need to be able to access both wan ips from outside at the same time so I'll have to figure out a way to force the packets to go out via same interface they came in. No...
