Whitepaper: Ultimate Firewall Protection

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

As open source explanation becomes more common in enterprise environments, they are also becoming more intuitive. While many admins from the Windows world were reluctant to deploy Linux based firewalls, the systems and configuration consoles have matured. For quite some time now an opensource project called ""IPCOP"" has been evolving. The project is committed to creating an easy to manage firewall solution because a firewall can only be as safe as its configuration is instinctive.


Whitepaper: Asterisk and Bristuff and Asterisk Voice Changer Compilation Error

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

A person trying to install the ""Asterisk Voice Changer"" on an Asterisk system that has the Bristuff version of Asterisk installed, he or she may receive a compiler error for the line 365 in the file ""app_voicechangedial.c"" saying the user is not supplying enough arguments/parameters in the calling of the function ""ast_request"". The origin of this is a change in the function ""ast_request"" that now requires an additional argument that the an individual needs to supply.

Whitepaper: Mambo: Search Engine Friendly URLs With Windows

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

This white paper shows how to get a better search engine ranking. The process is complicated if one doesn’t know it. The information provided in this white paper only works for Windows Servers hosting the Mambo site using Apache, not IIS. After following the steps given in this white paper, the links within Mambo appears differently and search engine crawlers are able to better index the Mambo site.


Whitepaper: CMS Rollout Showstoppers

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

A Content Management System rollout has a major impact on corporate operations and so everything about it is important. There are a few key points that one needs to pay attention to if he does not want his CMS deployment to fail. When one plans the systems architecture behind the CMS, one needs to make sure to incorporate enough redundancy options and start building the disaster recovery plan while planning the CMS when it is the easiest. The system offers a level of availability that matches the corporate needs.


Whitepaper: SCSI/SATA RAID Controller Replacement

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

In this white paper the authors present their way of coming out of a situation where SCSI/SATA RAID controller stops functioning and the only replacement was to have a different make or model. They run into this on a rather critical system since it is a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server running Microsoft Exchange 2003 and hosting a web site through IIS. The controller is the root of the problem while putting a new one into the system and attached the hot-plug drive cage to it. A boot process is identified by the drives and creates a logical disk.


Whitepaper: Controlling a Virus Outbreak With Honeypots

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

This white paper outlines measures to protect self from virus outbreaks that happen before the virus signatures and are able to identify and contain a virus. The main idea is that what many viruses have in common is that they scan the network for other systems (using many different approaches) and try to propagate themselves where they can. By implementing a honeypot on the network that will answer the virus calls and stall them (by keeping them in ""Wait"" loops), one can slow down a virus outbreak incredibly and win precious time to fully contain the virus.


Whitepaper: Windows Server 2003 POP3 Queue Overflow

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

The authors in this white paper face a situation where they could see queue overflows on a POP3 service hosted by Windows Server 2003. Another application stops working if it would connect to the POP3 server and told to download more than 3000 messages. The resolution was to move all files into a temporary location and then slowly seep them back into the queue. To achieve this, the authors create a little VBS file (VB-Script) that takes all the emails from the POP3 directory and places them into a temporary location and trickles them back into the POP3 queue directory (2500 at a time) until the temporary directory is empty.


Whitepaper: Web Hosting Risk Management

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

The defacement of a web site does not necessarily take place on the starting page of a complex web structure. With the high number of modifications to a web site, the publication of new content or changes to existing content may happen unintentionally by an internal user. In order to reduce the vulnerability to known security leaks in the hosting software, it is critical to apply all available security updates without delay. In addition to the implementation of a software solution, some modifications to the current infrastructure setup becomes necessary.


Whitepaper: How VPN Access May Become a Liability

by IT-PROBLEMS.EUJan 01, 2008

As necessary as VPN access to corporate possessions can be, there are some important security aspects that need to be addressed former to implementation. Just because a user can not login without the correct password does not ensure that the VPN access will not be abused. As identity theft is become more and more of a problem, ventures deploy mechanisms to ensure they identify cases of identity theft rapidly and consistently.
