I'm a technologist celebrating 15 years on the Internet. I've worked with organizations large and small and across multiple verticals to include financial, life sciences, consulting, retail, marketing/media, gaming, and the public sector (federal and state).

My experience spans from layer 1 (designing and installing physical infrastructure) to layer 7 (app development) and layer 8 (managing programs and projects).

I enjoy a good conversation, technical or otherwise. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or comments.

comment Protecting against DDoS attacks?
actually, I think this topic is more relevant to the security@stackexchange. There's a recent thread of syn flooding protection there.

comment Simple IP load balancer for web service that runs on Windows XP or Windows 7 Professional?
Well, you have to balance cost with time. You can build your own or use an existing solution (FOSS or commercial). If you'd rather not build your own, then you'd have to "learn" linux or settle with DNS RR LB (which doesn't provide HA). To tombull89's point, if you can't afford a NLB license and if HA is important, then perhaps priorities need to be reassessed.

comment Permanently assigning IP address for an embedded device
Yep - any communication to/from devices could generate a collision. The effect is broken comm until the conflict is resolved. With that said, following the RFC is a good practice IMHO.

comment What permissions are required to copy folders with security attached on a NAS
Another approach to track down what, if permissions, are denying the copy is to setup auditing and looking at the logs client-side and server-side.

comment What permissions are required to copy folders with security attached on a NAS
The description's a little vague but here are my thoughts: does the user have any "deny" permissions somewhere? Deny overrules any allow permissions set. With inheritance, a deny somewhere can easily affect effective policies. Add in groups and nesting, tracking down effective permissions can get hairy. Technically, a SAN is a block storage device so I don't think it's possible to assign "domain admin" rights to a block storage device. There may be other "security" software (i.e. endpoint control, dlp) that may be blocking the file transfer action. this happens outside file system permissions

comment Configuring an ISP in packet tracer
what's the difference between an isp's router and your router? generally nothing. If you're drawing up routing diagrams, then show the isp's router and how it'll be configured to participate in RIPv2. You can delineate the network boundary between you and the isp with a line.

comment SSL Enabled site refusing connections
Working down the OSI stack, is the port open and accessible? Try telnetting to 443 and see if you're able to establish a connection (note that windows telnet doesn't necessarily open a connection even though it may look open on the console).
