GAG! The Graphical Boot Manager.

By on Jan 12, 2005 in Networking | 0 comments

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...

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...
