comment Why do Windows Updates kill self-signed SSL certificates?
What do you mean by "remove and reapply new self-signed SSL certificates"? Please elaborate a bit.

comment IT Services: In House or Outsource?
Small business owners who are having trouble selecting an IT provider (be it an employee or an outsourced firm) would do well to spend some time "networking" with their peers in the small business community. The sad fact of the matter, though, is that with the barrier to entry so low in the IT industry there are a lot of charlatans out there who have no idea what they're doing and are only too happy to take a company's money and leave them with a horrible mess. References, be they for an employee or an outsourcing firm, are essential.

comment IT Services: In House or Outsource?
Like I said-- it comes down to the people and their attitudes. I know what you mean re: "solutions"-- I've had to clean up a number of them. I advise prospective Customers to ask all their potential outsourcing companies "If we decided to stop working with you tomorrow, how easy would it be for us to pick up with an employee or with another outsourcing firm?" We do a lot of work to keep our Customer networks very "plain vanilla". Likewise, we make it very easy and painless to get rid of us. That's probably part of the reason that no one ever has... >smile<

comment Website and Active Directory domain share the same name
I've always been partial to "ad.company.com", personally. There's probably never going to be a real ".local" TLD, what w/ so many installations already using it for internal naming.

comment windows remote desktop vs tightvnc server
@osij2is: Starting back in 1998 I taught academic courses at a community college in their Microsoft Certification program. I had a whole laundry list of classes (dating back to IIS 4.0). I ended up leaving in 2006 when my classes were transitioned to "online delivery". I've never had the enthusiasm to take an online class, and as such I wasn't about to try teaching one. It was a fun ride, and I met a lot of people with varied career backgrounds and interests. I got asked a lot of "what if" questions and spent hours in labs trying to break Microsoft products in new and fun ways.

comment Remote Desktop Disconnected Error trying to connect to a Windows XP computer
I've edited my posting. While I realize that the article references Windows 2000, as I stated prior (and now after) the link, this can and does happen on Windows XP-based RDP "servers", too.

comment Server 2003 Share a Folder on a remote system
@Christopher: Have a look at the section titled "Characteristics of Namespace Types" in the link in my posting. A "Stand-Alone" DFS root installed on "Server2" will allow shares on "Server2" to "point to" folders on "Server1", and the share names will all appear in \\Server2\sharename format (i.e. not using the domain's name).

comment Server 2003 Share a Folder on a remote system
@Christohper: You can use DFS to do exactly what you're describing to make a folder on "Server1" appear to be shared by "Server2". You don't have to use the "Domain DFS" and a different namespace. DFS will definitely do what you want.

comment Can IIS be configure to forward request to another web server?
Given the "reverse-proxy" tag on the poster's question I'm guessing he's looking for reverse proxy functionality and not an HTTP redirect.
