comment How to keep Java 7 up-to-date without losing JRE 6?
This did not work. I don't know how to make the legacy applications use JRE6. TeamCity - the least legacy app of all we have here - has agents that log "Registry key 'Software\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\CurrentVersion' has value '1.7', but '1.6' is required." and refuse to run. Another app, which is shipped as an exe, simply doesn't run at all, no error messages or anything.

That might work, if there is a configuration value for the JRE path in each legacy app. I'll try this.

@SimonCatlin in at least one case the vendor "didn't get round to it yet". Yeah, I know... But to be honest, Oracle's wiping JRE6 is at least as bad.

Just remember to go into advanced options and tell it to script not just the schema, but also the data.

comment Ban IP address based on X number of unsuccessful login attempts?
I think it’s because I’m not using Network Level Authentication, so every login attempt spins up a logon UI to actually present to the attacker through a remote desktop session. I can see why that might be expensive.

On my AWS small instance, 1 attempt every 4 seconds is enough to consume 50% CPU. Pretty crap if you ask me...

@RyanRies Fortunately, unlike forums this place actually welcomes keeping everything in one place, regardless of how old the question is.

What's a "session" in this context - an open connection to the database?
