If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment About digital signatures. Are they really secure?
@Peregring-lk even with the updated question, I'm still not sure why you believe someone can get the private key. Can you please explain how you think a person you send a message to gets the private part of the key?

comment Possibility of WAN Optimization for SSH traffic
From a security point of view, even if you can do it, you really really shouldn't.

comment Which port is the High-speed USB 2.0 port on a PowerEdge R900
The usb 1 port you see in lspci is likely from idrac - all the real ports should be usb 2.

Do they need to use their own account? Would a generic account on those pcs be sufficient?

comment Zabbix monitoring a custom process
You can definitely script adding them to you templates. Google "zabbix custom discovery" (on my phone so can't write a real answer right now...)

comment What do I need to manage remote laptops in ConfigMgr 2012r2?
@HopelessN00b a VPN will work for the staff laptops, but not for the ones they borrow for training (not on the domain, not always used by people with domain accounts) or the public computers (like library computers) - I don't want them on the staff network, but do need to make sure they have all their updates and get hardware inventories.

comment Exchange TLS Receive Connector Cert
If CheckTLS.com is returning the right certificate, and not showing any other errors, the error is likely on their side. The only other thing I can think to check is that CheckTLS.com shows that all the chained certificates are being sent (the godaddy intermediate and root certificates for your cert).

Use checktls.com to test which certificate your server is presenting.

If you can't remove them from the exchange console, try from mmc.exe -> Certificates.

comment Server won't physically fit in rack: which technical problems will I face in future if I force the mount?
At the very least, remove the doors so nobody can close them accidentally and smash something. Most rack doors come off just by pulling a pin on the hinge.

comment Apache not serving static content concurrently
When you say you tried it in two browsers, do you mean "I opened 2 tabs in firefox. Then I tried 2 tabs in chrome", or do you mean "I opened one tab in firefox and one in chrome at the same time"? To see if its a browser issue you need to try the latter.

Does the website require a username and password? If so its an android bug that has persisted for years.

@AnthonyFisher its even scarrier that your previous question says you work for a bank. Hope nobody ever learns they can install the AD management tools on their desktop...

comment Delete files from Server 2003 network share
All of the users are domain admins?!?! Local admin is bad enough, but every user as domain admin is practically begging to have issues. I would stop worrying about file permissions and fix that first.
