    NOD32 just hit on a virus

    Seriously - what does it take to get people to understand that the sites you visit have very little to do with current attack vectors for viruses these days? This was news 3 years ago:

    ITGuru does anyone here use it?

    IIS Logs

    Better question to ask is what does the business need? Do they have any legal requirements to keep the logs? Do they have any data mining purpose to keep the logs? Does the IT/data storage team have any fixed written policy on the matter of log files and how long you keep them (becomes...

    Network Monitoring

    Using it here - lots of tweaks, lots of updating... joys of a free product. When it works it's great... when it doesn't... it's a royal pain. Also using Solarwinds, and testing some EMC products along with some other unnamed vendor.

    Interested in Networking Career

    You don't go to school to learn the tech - you learn the process to troubleshoot, to design, and to understand how the systems work and what they are/were designed to do. Assuming your school had the lastest and greatest tech - by the time you graduated 4 years later it would already be...

    How does Sharepoint work?

    disclaimer: I hate Sharepoint, feels like a neutered version of mediawiki in a lot of ways to me (matter of what I used first I guess...). 1) Yes. Save to share location. 2) Yes. 3) Yes (based on permissions for that file/user) 4) Yes (based on permissions for that file/user)

    How often does your WAN IP change?

    So the better question would be what are you trying to do that it matters and it might be possible for people to either answer the original question, or provide alternatives for what you might be working on.

    Some questions for Network Engineers

    Are you planning on working in the field for more than 4 years? If so, what you will do will change as well the equipment and tech that powers it. The term well rounded education is used for a reason... it's teaching you methods and processes - not what command to type.

    Does anyone know of a university where my IT certifications count towards credits?

    How To VPN Everything?

    Sorry for the delay.... had a chat with the rest of the NetOps team about this topic, dragged a couple of the Networking team in as well. I'm willing to step up and say it - more hype than overall threat. In general the concern was more over current malware (of whatever type) on the laptop...

    How To VPN Everything?

    If you allow split tunneling you allow some traffic across the VPN and some across the net... it provides the ability to give a backdoor via the laptop into the company network. Once connected via the VPN all traffic should be tunneled across the VPN if security is any type of a concern.

    Panasas and SNMP

    Was wondering if anyone here has played around with any of the Panasas storage gear and if you had any issues with getting SNMP to work from it? Running software version 3.4.0-411864 but even on 3.0.7.c-241513 we haven't been able to get any love from the blades (Director or Storage) as far...

    Help me understand a Metro-E connection.

    Fun thing about Metro-E (or at least how we hook into it) is that from our edge router to the Metro-E gear is something simple like a gig connection, from the Telco's gear to the actual transport network it's typically a hodgepodge of stuff depending on where your connection is routed out to...

    Childproofing a computer

    I'm having trouble with a home network

    Fast answer that kevinzak is attempting to show you - you don't need the CD. Just the information from the working PC, which will help the board show you the correct settings for the non-working PC. So, Start > Run > CMD ... then type ipconfig /all
