11/4    Holy cow, I got a warning from my ISP that they were notified
        by BSA/ that I was copying music/video/software.
        Do they do port scan or something? That's a first for me.
        \_ They hang out on P2P networks and track IP addresses.  -tom
           \_ I believe they are paid by content providers to perform this
              monitoring service, so you should only run this risk with content
              from certain sources (such as Fox movies)
              \_ That's probably true.  -tom

11/7    Need help on http proxy. After I VPN to work, I'd like to tunnel
        all the traffic to my machine. How do I setup my machine (Linux)
        as a proxy server so that my home computers can route through it?
        I'm asking because the site we're testing on requires that we
        come from the same IP. If I use VPN, the server will reject me
        based on the fact that it's a different IP than my work Linux.

8/5     It looks like my company has started blocking HTTPS tunneling.
        I used to do this by tunneling SSH through the HTTP/HTTPS proxy
        server, but this seems to have stopped working. Does anyone know
        how the implementation of tunneling detection works, and whether
        there are widely available implementations? We run a bunch of MS
        stuff, so I imagine we're running an MS proxy server or something.

2/18    My DSL modem's ip address is, my internal network
        behind my router is 10.0.0.x. Is there a way I can configure
        the router so I can access the DSL modem from my 10.0.0.x
        network directly without re-wiring? Static routes? I tried it
        but no much luck. I also tried changing my internal network to
        192.168.0.x, but still does not work. Thanks.

1/21    I am trying to setup a small network for my girlfriend's
        mom's company.  They just bought an accounting package
        which requires windows 2003 server.  And they want internet
        access from each computer.  How should the network be setuped?
        Would it be dumb to use static IP for each computer and a
        computer as internet gateway?

8/29    What's the difference between a hub, a switch and a router?  Thx.
        \_ AFAIK, probably be corrected by someone:
           hub: Allows communication on a LAN with bandwith shared amongs all
                the nodes on the hub and maxing out at the max line speed.
           switch: Allows communication on a LAN with bandwith greater than
                the max line speed (point to point)

6/2     I've been to many places and almost every place I go to have
        802.11b/g. However, almost all of them have protected access,
        which I presume they use because they don't want people stealing
        their bandwidth. So here is one idea I think will really
        revolutionize 802.11X... an option in the router that allows you to
        specify the percentage of unprotected bandwidth you are willing to

1/10    VMware question for VMware gurus only. I've installed a WinXPsp1
        on top of WinXPsp2. How do you do the followings:
        1) transfer data between the two machines? I've tried mounting
           raw partition from WinXPsp1 but when I disable write, it
           doesn't boot up anymore (WinXP insists on writing)
        2) communicate between the two machines? I can ping WinXPsp1

11/9    I have two versions of MSIE 6.0.2800.1106. One is running inside a
        VMWare virtual machine, the other running native on an athlon PC.
        When I run a google query:
        They get slightly different results. What's the best way to figure
        out why this would be?  Perhaps a way to capture the request?
        \_ Maybe you're just hitting different google mirrors, and their

9/19    I'm looking for a simple but good load balancing appliance to sit
        in front of two boxes for the purposes of redundancy.  Load Balancing
        isn't really required, I just want the device to send traffic to
        the secondary box iff the first server goes down. Recommendations?
        \_ An OpenBSD 3.5 box running pf + carp can do this. If you don't
           want to use OpenBSD you can try ucarp:

8/16    Anybody know of an existing program similar to pop-before-smtp
        but for IMAP. It wou use a current IMAP connection to allow
        SMTP relaying from the same IP addres as that IMAP connection?
        \_ it's the same program, just change the regexp used to search
           for login lines and change the logfile watched
           \_ Nope, That does not work. IMAP connections are persistent and

6/2     My new favorite bug.    F5's BigIP 4.5.9:
        "Using the IP address  (CR31104)
        If you add a pool with a member node with the IP address, when the address and port select a virtual server
        on the local system, it causes the BIG-IP system to panic and the
        configuration to be deleted. The issue occurs only when the address

5/27    In what ways are FreeBSD superior to a good Linux distro?
        \_ Why do you hate Windows?
           \_ Why do you hate Linus?
        \_ *BSD has a better IP stack.
           \_ In what way?
           \_ Aren't they the same now?
