imap authentication plugin

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

We’ve set up a new blog for people to start playing with at work. As part of the set up I wanted to link back into the central authentication used for workstation login, etc… So the options were really kerberos, or radius. As the authority is an AD controller LDAP is not really considerable and […]

browsing by numbers

Saturday, April 23rd, 2005

A bunch of unrelated links (and roughly my browsing history for the last hour): gbpvr wiki jasonf wholinkstome Psi (my instant messenging client – where I’m tempted to use daily CVS builds at home) hal’s blog The Long Tail SubEthaEdit (if only there was a non-Mac version) Rands In Repose (check your NADD score) oh […]

Versioning Controlled Build

Thursday, April 21st, 2005

I foud this gem in the latest code project email. Versioning Controlled Build is a “Visual Studio add-in that automates AssemblyVersion control.” This plugin has already saved me time deploying our latest application, and I can guarantee it will continue to do so!

Yup, Google X is back but not where you would expect. There are also a few links hiding the the googlex group

Firefox download counter

Sunday, April 17th, 2005

Firefox has had over 46 million downloads! I’ve been meaning to add a link on my blog to the Spread Firefox site for a while, and today I noticed that Download Counter was back and with a feed! I had a quick look at the WordPress plugin, but both Infocraft’s Firefox Counter and [email protected]’s Firefox […]

feeding your honeypot to the firewall

Saturday, April 16th, 2005

For a long time I’ve had an apache honeypot set up for common requests for specified files (all identical, but hardlinked) in the scripts, msadc, msdac, _vti_bin folders etc, etc. If the honeypot got hit then it would email me and feed the offending ip address into the firewall blocklist filter. (Makes the apache logs […]

monitoring a dynamic ip interface with mrtg

Saturday, April 16th, 2005

I setup MRTG to monitor my ADSL connection, but what I was really watching was the network card on the pc with the pppoe client. Unfortunatly mrtg doesn’t seem to have a way of monitoring an ip that can change, you have to go on MAC address (pppoe mac is undefined), or interface number (which […]

Win2003 SP1 woes

Friday, April 15th, 2005

After the install of SP1 on our routing and remote access box, all inter-device routing died. You can ping and traceroute within the same network, but as soon as the server has to route the packet between interfaces it just drops it. Oddly pings happily leave the network (routed correctly), but the replies get lost. […]

Powered by ADSL

Wednesday, April 13th, 2005

After serveral phone calls I’d practically given up, but just after 9pm the ADSL installation tech phoned to ask if he could come and install. Thanks to Mr. Sampie and Mr. Molab I now have ADSL, YAY!
