    VOIP PBX

    Is that a good idea to put the PBX with the POE switch ?! I have this setup : Modem === Router (Edgerouter) ==== SWITCH (HP 1810-24v2) === POE SWITCH (4 phones + PBX) or should I do something like this : Modem === Router (Edgerouter) ==== SWITCH (HP 1810-24v2 + PBX) === POE SWITCH...

    Faster setup for a mac based office

    Yes its all wireless with a WNDR4500 (except the ix-200), they don't have a switch or anything else wired, even the printer. Fortunately they are moving into a new office, I asked them to wire the 4 desk stations. I think adding a switch with LACP and the NAS supporting LACP as well would...

    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...

    Faster setup for a mac based office

    I am going to revamp a mac based office. They have about 4 newish iMacs or MacBook Pros and they are 4 users (all 4 are designers and graphists) and they want something relatively fast. They currently have an iomega ix-200 (1TB) and a netgear WNDR4500 and they says its quite slow. I was...

    Erase sensitive data

    I want to erase "live" sensitive data on several windows 7 computers. Mostly excel spreadsheets and word documents I dont want to wipe the entire disk yet, because all the computers are in used by users. When decommissioned, I will wipe the disk with DBAN. Is there a program that can erase...

    pfsense wan vlan question

    Seem like you did the right thing but apparently they changed something recently to their network. There is a discussion on dsl reports. I havent read all the thread, but prehaps they figured it out ! Here I am curious too, because most of my clients are getting switched to FibreOP and some...

    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...

    Zyxel USG20

    I removed the Zyxel out of production, it turns out that the connection runs on a VDSL modem. The modem was in bridge mode (factory reset, bogus credentials, dhcp/wireless deactivated) , but strangely it still has a public ip. I checked the logs and the pppoe passthrough was active. The Zyxel...

    Zyxel USG20

    No virus and no malware. Scanned with avast and malwarebytes. I will swap the unit and see what happens. I am pretty sure its the DSL modem that has gone out of bridge mode.

    Zyxel USG20

    Acutally I have checked the logs and I got several alerts maybe unrelated: Interface wan1_ppp is disconnected. Interface wan1_ppp connect failed : Peer not responding. Interface wan1_ppp connection terminated. So it seems its the pppoe that is having some issues also...

    WRT54G running DD-WRT vs Cisco RV016 (consumer vs commercial)

    The cold spare is for backup purposes (if you plan on installing on customer sites) I ordered a lot of Mikrotik units in the last year or so and sometimes you get a few DOA units and/or just working a few days. The DOA / defect rate is not that high, but I think its worth having some on the...

    Brand new Synology DiskStation DS214SE -- authentication failure for CIFS/SMB shares

    Do you have a temporary solution ? If you restart the NAS or the computer, does it connect ? I had problems with logins persistence/errors once, turns out Windows 7 Credentials manager was messing around with the shares.

    freeBSD + samba 4

    I see ! I must say I was thinking going with freeBSD because of ZFS. Did you go with linux then or decided to stick with freeBSD ? Are you managing group policies with that server ? I saw somewhere its possible to manage group policies with windows 7 (RSAT) on linux, but I dont seem to find...

    Synology Rep RAGE or Ignorance?

    Are you sure its a 200 users scenario ? I dont think that 2 drives NAS are meant for 200 users and its not a good idea to rely on 1-2 drives for the backups and live data. For live data, you should buy a proper NAS and see what raid configurations suit your needs. You could always buy a...

    Good small business printer

    We are going to service the 9840 and keep it as a spare/second device its a decent printer as far as I am concerned. I just sorted from 2-3 vendor sites the most reviewed and highest score and came to the same model. So the 9970 seems like a good replacement ! Thanks !
