  1. Cbtnuggets rocks!

    Free 7 day trial? Why wouldn't someone check this out?

    http://blog.cbtnuggets.com/2014/01/a...ts-free-trial/

    Ive used these videos to complete my Cisco CCNP, AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate, and my Microsoft MCSA 2003 back in the day. I am currently using them again for my CCNP renewal certification, python, and learning Juniper.

    Great for anyone wanting to learn about new technology!

  2. Configure AD authentication with SSL VPN using SOPHOS UTM 9

    VPN configuration is really simple on this device, you can setup a simple local user on the router to allow a VPN connection just by following the link below

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGt26ZlerpQ

    However this means another username and password a user has to remember so lets make it easier for them to use their AD username and password to log into the VPN. (This is what I had to do to get this working in my environment, ymmv)

  3. Virtualization for the home user

    Virtualization is great for those who want to learn new operating systems, working on certifications, testing out group policies, testing updates/patches, testing software on newer operating systems to name a few. Between all the Linux distros out there and Windows evaluations (yes windows lets you try and operating system for 180 days) unless you have some super old computer, no one has any reason to not try out new things.

    This is just a quick rundown on what options are available ...
  4. SOPHOS UTM 9.2 installation error

    Installing SOPHOS UTM on this mini pc I just bought and I ran into an error while installing the OS. The error was:

    Install.tar could not be found.

    After searching around, supposedly this has something to do with trying to install from a USB drive and the installation process unmounting the usb drive.

    I found this thread about the same issue

  5. Mini computer firewall upgrade post

    So I bite the bullet and purchase this device since my little netgate pfsense firewall wasnt cutting it any more performance wise.

    I was really reluctant to purchase this thing mainly because there is absolutely no information about the hardware such as motherboard, network cards, and how much ram it came with. Well ...

  6. Vmware ESXi 5.1 and ISCSI target issues

    I am working on an environment where I have 4 Dell R610 servers and a Lenovo/EMC StorCenter px12-350r running software version 4.0.10.30765. All 4 Dell servers have Vmware ESXi 5.1 1483097 installed. I spent most of this past Friday updates all 4 Dell servers to the latest bios/firmware updates (something that is kind of a pain in the ass since I am running ESXi as my operating system. Anyways, the Lenovo Storcenter has about 5 TB of space on it we want to use to present to all 4 Dell servers ...

  7. QNAP stupidness with Rsync and delta copy

    A QNAP NAS (TS-212) was purchased for the charity I work with to remotely backup their data in case of an emergency from a Windows box. I have a QNAP at home and remember reading that it supports rsync which is perfect for a free backup solution. I found delta copy and decided to give it a try and boy was this a pain in the ass to get working but here is how I got it going.

    First enable rsync on the QNAP device: Application > backup station > backup server > rsync server ...

  8. Adventures of using the Amazon's AWS cli part 2 - Security Groups

    After you create the VPC, you will want to look at the list of your applications and drawings of your environment and setup Security groups.

    Here is a list of common TCP/UDP ports
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...P_port_numbers

    Creating a security group
    Code:
    aws ec2 create-security-group --group-name namehere --description "Test group"
    To describe the security group
    Code:
    Aws ec2 describe-security-groups --group-name

  9. Adventures of using the Amazon's AWS cli part 1 - VPC

    Here is a reference guide for myself when it comes to the Amazon AWS cli environment for a basic VPC configuration. Yes all this can be done from the web interface, however if you are going to work in an environment that will utilize govcloud you will need to learn the cli as the web interface isnít available (cli is also useful when using cloud formation). This is intended for those who have prior experience when it comes to AWS, not to teach you the basics of AWS.

    This is all ...
  10. Windows 8.1, real tek sound cards, and VMware Workstation 10.x

    Decided to install windows 8.1 on my Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard last night and proceeded to install VMware workstation 10.0.1 build-1379776. Loaded up my ubuntu vms and for whatever reason getting the error:

    "A device ID that has been used is out of range for your system. Sound will be disconnected."

    Everything was working fine in Windows 7 Pro so I started to do some digging around and noticed several people are having the issue with vmware workstation ...
