I work at a large international development charity in London, as International Operations Manager. I manage a team of Regional ICT Service Managers, based in developing world countries, who keep our users happy through fixing problems, setting up great connectivity and generally making sure users can do their day jobs.

I previously worked at the same place as International Network Systems Analyst. I looked after a bunch of ICT systems in offices in the developing world, as well as looking after systems in our HQ. I gained a lot of knowledge in that job, and the techy side competes with the people stuff in the new role, hence I still hang out here a lot.

I'm passionate about the use of ICT in developing countries, both in terms of dealing with the inherent problems for ICT in those places, and using ICT as a tool for development.

comment TFTP uploads failing
Unfortunately I do have the -s flag set. Reading files works just fine, so connectivity is functioning. There is no /var/log/audit/audit.log. Not familiar with strace - I guess that is the next thing to try.

comment Monitor windows print queue using snmp
You mean use MOM? That created a lot of false alarms, and meant that while MOM knew what to monitor in the first place, network admins did not know what was being monitored. I prefer to start simple and build up.

Windows Server 2003 R2 native print server. Searching for how to do this gives a lot of pages about SNMP to monitor print queues in windows can cause problems under certain conditions, but I can't find any info on what MIB or OIDS to use to do the monitoring.
