    Onboard SATA vs HBA pass through for ESXi all-in-one

    There's a difference between someone who is paid to participate in a community forum versus someone who so happens to work for a tech company, is a member of a community, and makes it public that said person works for said company. I've personally never spoken with lopoetve, but as a long time...

    Cheapest Controller with Passthrough

    It's the motherboard that you need to worry about for VMDP (and a little bit on the CPU, e.g. i3 doesn't support VT-d). If your motherboard can't do Intel VT-d or AMD-Vi then you can't do passthrough.

    how to see a list of mac address in my lan (command line, linux/windows/mac)

    My approach to get every MAC address on a subnet would be to use Linux. nmap -n -sP <subnet> arp -a | grep -v incomplete

    Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology has a cool Networking lab

    I can probably count the number of current females in ANSA and ISF on one hand. IT with NSSA concentration doesn't count.

    Export apps under VMWare to X

    I'm pretty sure he/she means running Windows apps in a Linux environment. It's called Unity Mode and it's only in Workstation/Fusion from the VMware side.

    Actually, it's available at the cost of tuition :P I got my copy as well from MSDNAA and three additional keys for fun :D I am also waiting for 2008 R2 to be posted. Sadly, my MSDNAA admin has no idea when that will be D:

    Post Your Connection Speed

    :P I've noticed that using speed testers on the campus connection is unreliable because in my experience it depends on what type of traffic is passing through that will determine how much you can burst.

    Workstation 6.5 -- An easier way to install Windows XP with FAT32 virtual disk?

    IIRC, all you have to do is unmount/remove the floppy drive from your VM settings. You'll notice when you create Windows VMs there's a mounted floppy image called "automate.flp" or along those lines. It's been awhile since I've used VMware Workstation and I don't have it installed at this moment...

    Off topic, but what is the "IOIOI" port? A quick Google says it's for serial connections but I can't think of a scenario in my head right now when it would be used.

    curious: since switch's ports have mac addresses....

    My professor uses both "SAT" and "MAC Table" synonymously. I guess if we get the point is what matters. :p

    curious: since switch's ports have mac addresses....

    It's called a Source Address Table according to my awesome note-taking skills in lecture. As Vito_Corleone said, you wouldn't see it because ARP maps IP addresses to the respective MAC addresses.

    virtualbox, quick question

    virtualbox, quick question

    Alright here's a quick dirty rundown. You've already installed bridge-utils. After that, all you need to do is modify /etc/network/interfaces and add a vbox interface. iface br0 inet dhcp bridge_ports eth0 Now add an interface sudo VboxAddIF vbox0 YourUsername br0 And don't...

    virtualbox, quick question

    It's in your settings of the VM under network. You'll see a drop-down menu (probably set to NAT right now) and set it to host interface. But then you'll need to set up host networking which is covered in the manual. Look at section

    Sorry to hear VirtualBox isn't working out well. I love it and I haven't had any issues with it. I use it on Linux (Ubuntu 7.10 thru 8.10, Fedora 9 and 10), Windows XP and I've used the OS X version a bit. I personally prefer it as my desktop virtualization program mainly because it works for...

    Why some people prefer to use Linux/Ubuntu over Windows?

    I believe they use the admin group instead. In /etc/sudoers, you will notice everyone on in the admin group can sudo. in /etc/group, you will see that your account is part of the admin group. As for why I use Linux, it's free and I like the idea of open source. And call me an oddball or...

    RIT runs on tri-mesters meaning 3 quarters, 10 weeks each not including summer. That's why it is 184 hours to complete. I go to RIT for NSSA and my first year was not worth it in my opinion. It is not till the second year where you start taking courses where you're actually learning something...

    x264 acceleration

    As far as I know, x264 is decoded using the processor only on Linux. Correct me if I am wrong. I have a X2 4200, 7600GT, MPlayer compiled from source and 1080 videos played with hiccups here and there. A quick Google shows that nvidia cards have a h264 decoder but for Windows only unless...

    Virtualized Router

    I'm curious if anyone has or does run a virtualized router. What's your opinion on the idea? Security issues? Performance hit? Anything else to mention/take note of? I currently have pfSense running on ESXi (it's free now for those that care) for my home network as a test/for fun thing right...

    port forwarding with d-link dir-655 router

    I don't use Vista so I am just assuming here. I'll assume you change the ports the same way you do it in previous versions which you change a registry value. My suggestion is to make sure you're changing the right registry entry (and it is in decimal) because I was doing this one time and I...
