    SB Router/FW Recommendations

    great info. thanks. so for the two route scenario i described- how would i accomplish that with the zyxel? would i be configuring per-user routing so that some users get to both LAN1 and LAN2, or am i setting up essentially 2 different endpoints? also, it looks like the only difference with...

    SB Router/FW Recommendations

    having the skills and having the time are 2 different problems. i've run openBSD with nothing but pf and CLI before as a core network device, but i'm looking for something i can set up, run a routine backup of the config, and then never think about it again. actually, pfsense or openBSD would...

    SB Router/FW Recommendations

    so it is capable of having 2 unique VPN setups or of being able to implement different routing rules based on the user? all these devices (i mean any vendor: cisco, draytek, etc) say is that they support X number of tunnels. but if there is only one VPN config i can use and all the X number of...

    SB Router/FW Recommendations

    any specific model? btw, in terms of a budget- anything up to $1000 would be fine. from what i've looked at i don't think i should have to pay more than that, but if necessary anything up to $2000 would probably be considered.

    Ubiquiti Unifi Questions...

    thanks everyone for the replies. they do not seem to have a lot of resellers (none that i've heard of before anyway), and the warning about making sure the seller includes the injectors will save me a lot of hassle and rage later :-) thanks all!

    Ubiquiti Unifi Questions...

    these units get power over the ethernet cable, right? i've never had a PoE device before so n00b question: if you just plug an ethernet cable from any switch or router into this thing will it work, or do you need some special power input on the other end? TIA

    NOS End-semester lab, need help/pointers/advice

    yeah, i mean it's fine if she wants you to figure out HOW to do something on your own, but she's asking you to figure out WHAT to do. seems idiotic. i would look at basic network services first. DCHP and DNS. choose one machine to set those up on. create a domain, and join the other...

    Why can't I use a DVI-HDMI cable, and what about HDMI video cards?

    for any PC to TV connection you are going to need to go through complicated refresh rate tweaking. the TV is not a monitor. it does not have the exact same resolution or refresh rate as a monitor, and thus windows does not have a 50Hz refresh rate in as a default which will make your tv happy...

    What proxy are you running 500+ users?

    well without checking- last time i looked ipcop did not support scsi devices. i would ditch the linux idea because i'm a hater. i'm just trying to be honest. openbsd or freebsd with squid would be my choice. funny about the mention of symantec's solution being a piece of poo- that was...

    Need help on small office Network

    they probably downloaded an update which turned on the MS firewall or something. check in control panel --> windows firewall to see if it is turned on or disabled. if you're not running windows xp (and thus no built-in firewall) then give me more info in your post next time ;)

    job interview; what to expect?

    if they are decent interviewers you will face as many "problem solving" questions as anything else. you might be asked to discuss a time when you faced a certain type of problem (personaility conflict with coworker, time management, etc) and how did you deal with it. or you may be asked how...

    Is it posible to record a computers actions ???

    in order for this to be legal, the recordings must be made as a normal part of operating your business. this generally means you need to have a policy stating that you may be monitoring email, web browsing, etc. the employees need to be made aware of the policy- usually you will want to...

    Questions about proxy servers

    there are different types of proxy servers. if you want an application proxy you will need a server for each service you are proxying. you could set up squid for HTTP/SSL, sendmail or postfix for SMTP, ftp-proxy for FTP, etc. you could set these all up on a single machine though. you could...

    Upgraded to RR from DSL, now router isn't working...

    as most have said, you should probably do a factory reset on your router. you'll need to reconfigure any specific settings you had and would like to go back to. also, when you cycle the router also cycle your cable modem. for some reason mine does not like to give out a new IP unless it...

    Master's Degree decision - advice needed

    i work with someone who went to CM and they're a total lunchbox. anyway, again i don't think that's really even remotely an option. i'd have to quit my job and go full time, or at the very least, move to pittsburgh. itsmikey, SANS is exactly as good as everyone says it is. or better.

    Master's Degree decision - advice needed

    SANS won't be acccredited until sometime after they graduate their first class of students. that would obviously be my first choice since i know the name is well-recognized in the field, the programs look great, and the education is excellent. however, without accreditation i can't get...

    Master's Degree decision - advice needed
