For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
I want to add the shortcut to all user desktop using group policy reference. The file was share from
folder and mapped to user by a logon script to this path
I want to create a short cut to the News folder and put it on all desktop user. So I try to read the article from here[^]. The below is my setting:
Target Type: File System Object
Location: All user desktop
Target path: \\pc1\localsh\News
Start In: \\pc1\localsh\News
Other setting is keep the same. I also try to run gpupdate /force command on both server and client machine but when I try to logon, the shortcut is appear. I also try to search video in youtube it give an example by pointing shortcut to a website, not to a folder.
Please let me know if you found any mistake in the above setting and find the solution.
I downloaded the log file from the web server, and found many strange entries. Why is a statistics script called so terribly often? What do all the junk referrers do there? Looks like some mis-configuration of the Plesk software for managing IIS.
Literally hundreds of times a day, http://cydas.org/plesk-stat/webstat/AWStats/cgi-bin/awstats.pl?framename=mainright&output=refererpages[^] is called. This shows the referrer statistics for the web site - virtually none of them is related to Cytogenetics (that's what the web site is about). Most of them are dubious domains.
The statistics page does not show query parameters, as they are required for a good link to YouTube. But the logs show many referrals from YouTube (most of them say: "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated.", but one is still available and bears the title "Generateur de Code PaySafeCard - Gratuit Code PaySafeCard" - criminal content, I guess).
What are your experiences with such a strange thing, how does this kind of hack work, and more important: how to prevent it?
[Edit]With a Google search (for awstats.pl and further search terms[^]), I found some more web sites which are such infected, and fake "user profiles" which link to the statistics page as their "home page".[/Edit]
I'd like to add some further thoughts about that problem.
The awstats.pl script provided a page with links - and everyone could add his favorite into this list: just send a GET request to any page of my site with a forged referer (any library for sending http requests allows for setting any referer), and it will then show up on the script page.
Why would you want to do so?
It is believed that you get a better rank with search engines when your site is linked from many other sites. And in fact, several "referers" contained "seo" (like Search Engine Optimization) in their domain/subdomain or page name. And many other sites were likely added by such SEO bastards.
Actually, back in 2010 a Russian web pharmacy was the first to massively use my site for that purpose.
But there is another group: they show "cheats" for games, provide links to cracked games, or even more criminal key generators. I guess they simply try to obfuscate their origin - my page is linked from somewhere, from here you get to a youtube video explaining their hack and showing a link to the next page to get the desired product.
Perhaps other uses are possible, but that's the idea I've come up with.
So, my question that I concern is how the API call exactly Driver functions.
User application call an API function, then API function call Windows Driver. The question is how the API function maps to Driver function or call the driver correctly, especially there are many drivers for one device.
As of my thinking, the driver must conform to the rule that Microsoft define?
Pls answer me in the soonest time and Thank you very much.
In Windows 7, when using a multi monitor set up, and each monitor has different resolutions, you will notice that when you move the mouse from the smallest monitor to the biggest one it always works well, but when you do it in the other way, from the big one to the small one, some times it fails.
Let me explain, assuming that the top of the display is the vertical coordinate 0, if you have the mouse pointer in a vertical position bigger than the maximum resolution of the smaller display the mouse cursor will "collide" to an invisible wall.
Is there any way to avoid that? (apart of course than using two monitors of the exact resolution or to set both monitors to the same resolution).
When using Mouse without borders in the office with my main computer together with my laptop this is not happening and resolutions of both devices are completely different.
This could be implemented and it would improve the experience in most of the situations as there are really not much applications that are using the first pixel of the display, typically there are margins around that would avoid the mess to happen.
I've been wondering if anyone has developed that already...
Hi i have configured open Dns alternatively for un restricting for certain users i have configured in tcp/ip of general tab to use dns servers and there i specified the intranet domain ip so know i want to restrict all the users to use the open dns irrespective of configuration, hows its possible without manually going to do lap to lap is there any way pls suggest me
Hi! Greetings of the day, I have a windows 2003 server and have recently configured it to act as a router by doing NAT configuration. I have a public IP address provided by my ISP.I have a web application hosted on one of my internal servers and able to access the application on LAN. How do I access the same application using my public IP address?
If the option is grayed out you have probably not defined an address pool. This can be done in the 'Adress Pool' tab. But this is for multiple IP adresses assigned by your ISP. If you have only one public IP address, you can use the 'On this interface option'.
I am a bit out of my depth here so I have some questions. At my site we do unattended installs and configuration of our machines. I would like to script the install of a mmc snap in but have come to an impasse. I have found some sample code but I cannot find documentation to take me further. I would like to add the Group Policy Object Editor which I can do. But I want to further configure it to the local policy/Non-administrators which is where I get suck.
Below is what I have so far any and all help will be welcome. Thanks in advance.
When a client request for a ip in dns server it get the ip after resolve. Now the client knows the ip of the web server it requested. But when client click a link in the page within the domain, i want to know how now client will connect with web server i.e via ip or name. what is the task of reverse lookup zone.
Given a URI of the form host.organisation.suffix, the name will be sent via DNS to a system that can resolve names belonging to the suffix group (e.g. .com, .org etc). That system can then pass off to a system that can resolve names by organisation, and lastly to a system that can resolve host names in an organisation to an IP address.
I've inherited a legacy IIS 7.0 website (vb.net website, not an application) that was running against an MSSQL 2005 Database.
Recently we upgraded to MSSQL 2008 R2. Now, when users go to certain pages, we get a SQL Connection timeout error. Investigating, it says this can happen when datareaders are used and connections aren't properly closed. I tried adding try/catch/finally statements, but I can still get the error. I've also updated the SQL Client to use the same version on both the SQL server and the Web Server, to no avail.
I pull a netstat when the issue happens, and there's literally thousands of connections to the SQL server (from the Web Server).. based on the one page (trying) to load.
This particular page makes a simple call to populate an Org diagram. Fairly straight forward. But for some reason, the page has almost taken off without control and uses up all the available connections to the SQL server.
Any thoughts on how I might troubleshoot/resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated!
I've found that when the database was upgraded from 2005 to 2008R2, some NULL columns were converted to columns with a 0 value..which then caused the stored procedure for the page to infinite loop and lock the connections (again.. not my code!). Any idea why that might have happened? Was the database not restored/converted properly?
There is the "wait an hour before trying again" - I suspect this is the old "turn it off, wait a couple of minutes and turn it back on" support trick: If it work, they think you're brilliant, if it doesn't, someone else will get the call when they call back...
The only instant messaging I do involves my middle finger.
