Setting up a PPtP server behind a Linksys Router

Setting up a PPtP server behind a Linksys Router

Oddly, it actually seems to work. I think the Linksys has special rules for "port 47" (doesn't seem to be an assigned port for anything) such that it actually interprets it as "protocol 47" (GRE, which PPtP uses), and forwards it to the PPtP server.

Dial-in tab is missing on XP

Microsoft Support WebCasts

"some tools don't work well on XP clients, like the RAS dial-in tab is missing"

I was going nuts trying to figure out how to allow my user to dial-in via PPTP. Turns out that you just don't get that tab in XP. I had to go to the Domain Controller to do it.

Now I have ssh on my Nokia 3650

PuTTY for Symbian OS

PuTTY is a free SSH client developed by Simon Tatham and others. This page contains a port to the Symbian OS, with support for Series 60 (Nokia 3650, 6600, and N-Gage) and Nokia 9200 Communicator series (Nokia 9210, 9210i, and 9290). The current version contains SSH protocol support, terminal emulation, and a basic user interface.

Note: I did have to call Tmobile and get them to (1) activate "Tmobile Unlimited Internet VPN" (I already was paying for Tmobile Unlimited Internet, so no additional charge, and (2) give me the info for a different access point (i.e. not the t-zones wap access point). Boom, I'm ssh-ing to my computer...

Our OWA SSL was very slow

Yahoo! Groups : Exchange2000 Messages : Message 39269 of 39672

Turns out that we had inaccessible ldap:// and http:// locations for the CRL that we were using on our CA. Thus, IE would take forever to time out before it finally asked you if you wanted to trust the cert.

Gah. Tricky exchange

288175 - XCON: Recipient Policy Cannot Match the FQDN of Any Server in the Organization, 5.4.8 NDRs

We had this exact situation. I couldn't figure out why the replacement Exchange server would accept mail just fine, and yet not be able to send any.

Apparently, you can't have an address policy that is @FQDN of the exchange server where their mailbox is.
