comment 40 tcp clients simultaneously - extreme lag
Has a local at your office stress test shown that you really know how too program soemthing that keeps 10-40 connections open? I suspect a programmign error a lot more than anything else.

comment Windows 2003 IIS webserver (testserver) is slow
Why do you even test something on a server that is outdatecd by two software versions? How powerfull is it? I f the CPU is full, then the rmote SQL is unlikely to be the culprit.

comment Server 2008 R2 Slow Startup fix
Except it is not read only. WIndows loves dynamic updates with security on the individual entries. Regarding ups - get a samll atom baed server that does only that. I run a lot of vitualization, too, and I 1 separate machien acting as "first dc" that has a separate UPS JUST to have a core from which to start the network.

comment What does Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 573 mean?
Yeah. What would you suggest instead of going to the server and doing an admin's job?

comment What does Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 573 mean?
SO what? THe server says "internal error, related to ip". Without the logs you can not know. SO, start debugging the server. Can be any of a ton of things. Whining around wont help you. Beter get to work - log onto the server and find out the "real" error message that must be logged in the server's logs. THen - guesss what - you likely know more. Maybde this is the server's way to tell you that your IP is blacklsited?

comment What does Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 573 mean?
Yes, This is a SMTP error that the recipuient server tells your sender. So, it is not the senders problem to debug it - the sender has no idea how to even do that. This needs to be done on the recipient server.

comment 5GB DB backup too large for phpmyadmin any solutions?
5gb EXTREME? For your phone - yes. For a server - no. Multiply it by 20.000 and we talk of hugh. I have a 800gb database at home.

Well, then start debugging it on the server. And the emails are sent - the recipient server just does not say "I got it", he says "sorry, internal error". Start on the server - any non totally stupid server will have an error log showing what is behind this error.

IF you want to go hardware, Mikrotik is a lot more reasonable price wise than Cisco.

comment SBS 2008 VPN Performance
No, it is likely you hunt ghosts here - as in: the reason is not related to SBS at all. The theoreitcla limit can be quite theoretical depending on the quality of the providers on both ends.
