I've been doing software development for about 14 years in a variety of languages from C,C++, Java/J2EE, PHP, and more recently C# and ASP.NET.

comment Preventing brute-force attacks on MySQL?
@thepocketwade - Which is why I said it's not a real solution to the problem. But it could still be helpful.

comment Windows Web Server 2008 License Key
I did finally get this resolved. I RMA'd the software, and the license key on the second copy I got from Newegg worked just fine. Go figure.

comment Windows Web Server 2008 License Key
Thanks Alex - I did skip the license key and got it installed. I tried putting in the key again once the install was complete (and after running windows update), but no joy. I've RMA'd the software to newegg and if it still doesn't work when I finally get a new copy, I'll try calling the activation number once to see if they can help.

comment Using IIS7 as a reverse proxy
You're right - spent about 2 hours already trying to figure this out for IIS. After 30 minutes of looking into mod_proxy and the [P] rewrite rule, I now have this up and running in Apache.

@Mark D - You might want to look into downloading the NetBeans development environment. It will come with a number of pre-built examples that you can look at.

comment Windows Web Server 2008 License Key
@SpaceManSpiff - It should be the same key, although I can't seem to find anything that would verify that beyond any doubt. The retail box came with two dvds - a 32bit and a 64bit but only one license key. Nothing on the key label specified whether it was for the 32 or 64 bit edition.

comment Windows Web Server 2008 License Key
@Wil - Yeah, thought about the B vs. 8 thing, and checked that as well. I'm in the process of RMA'ing it now, but my biggest concern of course is that when I finally get a new copy, that the new one won't work either...

comment Windows Web Server 2008 License Key
@Wayne - Yes, I believe Microsoft support did say it was a valid Windows Web Server 2008 key. I don't recall asking them that specifically, but during the call I verified with him a couple of times that it was Windows Web Server 2008 that I was installing. I think if the key was for another version he would have mentioned that at that point.

Doesn't seem to be a memory issue - I just tried removing all but one stick of memory, enter the key again, no go. Tried swapping that stick with another, also no-go. So unless both sticks are bad, it wouldn't be that. As for trying Microsoft support - not sure I want to bet $250 on them admitting they were wrong :)
