Hello and Picasa2 are good softwares!

Today I found these two softwares very useful to manage my pictures and share them with my friends, I installed both of them, at first glance they look very strange but easy to understand, after you start working with them you will find that their dictionary is completely different from other common softwares, I think they will add some new words to our Computer/Internet vocabulary, these two softwares are other inventions of Google and I think they can be more common for home users. Picasa manages your pictures and Hello lets you communicate with other Hello users and share your pictures, when you chat with your friends try some smilies, they are funny I tried ‘:)’ ‘:(‘ ‘XO’ ‘LOL’ , you may find more! Picasa and Hello work together, it means when you receive a picture from your friends on Hello you can have it in you Picasa as well, even...

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...

PF Firewalling small tip

By on Nov 20, 2004 in Internet, Networking, Software and Tools | 0 comments

I was trying to block HTTP access of one of my users, I have a SQUID Cache server/Gateway in my network bottleneck and I just use one of Ethernet ports of that server just for catching HTTP connections and cache contents, I also installed a PF as Firewall. As you may know with PF is very easy to block any kind of access inbound or outbound, I used following command to not to let my user be able to initiate HTTP requests by editting /etc/pf.conf: block in on bge0 proto tcp from to any port 80 But I experienced a strange thing, the client was able to use HTTP, I also checked my SQIUID, all user queries were passing through SQUID proxy, the reason was because PF redirects packets before any kind of filtering! IMPORTANT: PF redirects packets before any kind of filtering So then, I edited /etc/pf.conf like this: table {, ! } . . . rdr on bge0 proto tcp from to...

Multiple Websites on a single Host

Have you ever stopped how shared Hosting service providers put multiple websites with different domain names on a single host and single IP? They usually call it shared webhosting in contrast with dedicated servers, if you are curious to find out how it works read this PDF. Multiple Websites on a sigle Host Later, I will add some documents about Tomcat and Apache Webserver, though the concept is the same.
