By on Mar 16, 2005 in Networking | 0 comments

Today I tried to find how I can recover a lost password of 3Com Manageable Switch for my further reference, we use 3Com Manageable SuperStack3 Model:3250, you can try this procedure with the other models it might work. Follow these steps to recover the password:1. Connect your PC serial port to console port of your device, use Hyper Terminal as a dumb terminal with these communication settings, 8-N-1, Flow Control = Hardware, baud rate = 19200.2. To force device to go to password recovery mode enter recover for both login and password.3. Device goes to the recovery mode and it shows counting down for 30 seconds, during this period you should turn of your device and turn it on. Note: GIVE AT LEAST 15 SECONDS TO THE DEVICE BEFORE TURNING IT ON 4. After starting up, the device asks you for a new admin password. Enjoy...

Google Search Language Setting

By on Jan 30, 2005 in Internet | 0 comments

Since I use Google search in my website, I had a small problem with its results. Google normally checks your IP address, regional settings and cookies then return results in your language if its possible. In my case I got different languages in different browsers, when you create search profile in Google control panel, it does not provide any feature to set the search result language. To solve this, when you search normally through Google website, look through the query string showing in your address bar, a parameter named hl holds language name of the result, if you change its value like this hl=fa you will receive search result in Persian, and en is for English. For your website you need to add this inside Google search form for English language: For other languages, at this time, Goggle supports these languages: Persian=fa, Arabic=ar, English=en, Indonesian=id, Romanian=ro,...

I was looking for a simple and easy to user/install software to use it as multiboot manager on my laptop. I googled and found a very simple boot manager, it’s just a free software which you can download it from http://gag.sourceforge.net/download.html , then you just need to make a floppy and …… Okay.. When you download the zip file, read install.txt to find out how to deploy this small software. About the features I just copied following information: Allows boot of up to 9 different operating systems. It can boot operating systems installed in primary and extended partitions on any available hard disk. Can be installed from nearly all operating systems. GAG doesn’t need its own partition. It installs itself in the first track of the hard disk, which is reserved for these kinds of programs. It can also be installed on a floppy disk, without using the hard disk....

Mozilla Firefox is amazing!

By on Jan 9, 2005 in Networking | 0 comments

I’m really excited since I ran Mozilla Firefox 1.0 on my PC for the first time, I found Internet Explorer features and Mozilla security in Firefox. Specially I found it very quick and tiny! One of the most important features that other well known softwares does not support in a good manner is Site Feed Handling. With Firefox you will be informed if the website you are visiting has Site Feed. Firefox sister is Thunderbird, which is a powerful mail client, I like it. It handles Site Feeds like e-mails so you can be more comfortable with this part of it. The most important part of an e-mail client is to be able to work with large files, I didn’t check this software with lots of e-mails, if Mozilla programmers haven’t check this before, your huge amount of e-mails might overwhelm the software’s normal activity! My suggestion is to backup your e-mails occasionally...

How to use .htaccess files for APACHE HTTP Server

By on Jan 7, 2005 in Internet, Networking, Software and Tools | 0 comments

If you have important information which you don’t like to make them public, you can use .htaccess files to customize your directory. But you have to ask from your provider if they can provide you .htaccess file. I post this memo because lots of people use shared hosting services because of their cheap prices, so if you are going to put important information on those type of hosts, asking about this feature will help you for your further website developments. First of all you should have your passwd file to be uploaded on the server, or the hosting service provider should give you some tools to handle this file. After you create your passwd file you should put in a secure place that nobody can access it. of course you should be able to access it through FTP or webtools to handle users and passwords. If your provider doesn’t have these tools you can create password file...

Is it Microsoft bug or SQUID cache server bug?!

By on Dec 27, 2004 in Internet, Software and Tools | 0 comments

These days I received lots of complains from my network users about logging into HOTMAIL, I installed an squid cache server in the transparent mode and it was working fine. I found out that when a user use IE6 and after logging into HOTMAIL.COM, instead of mailbox a blank page was appeared! But with Netscape 7.2 which I normally use, there is no problem! After some work around the issue I found out that its because of header encoding which IE uses to place its requests. Getting rid of this problem is very easy but the concept from SQUID Cache server point of view is, we have to anonymize headers to not to use encodings. for SQUID version 2.5.STABLE7, use the following configuration in squid.conf: header_access Accept-Encoding deny all for SQUID Version 2.4.STABLE6 anonymize_headers deny Accept-Encoding the second configuration may work for HOTMAIL, but check with GMAIL this might not...
