  • How does Microsoft prevent leaks?

    I would be interested to see a real answer posted here at some point rather than just have a few people guess and never really come to a conclusion.

    Anyone from M$ care to share? Big Smile

  • Installing Exchange 2003 on Server 2003 with SP1

    Ok I've tried this twice today without success I'm clearly doing something, somewhere, wrong.

    My network setup is rather confusing but basically it's like this:

    Internet -> XP Pro box -> Server -> Network Switch -> Parents Laptops & other wired desktop boxes.

    The firewall and NAT software is hosted on the XP Pro box and so currently it is all achieved by port forwarding. I haven't experienced any problems with this yet except DNS setting entries to the internal IP address by default but I changed that.

    So on to the Exchange install. I followed the check list and all the tests etc finished good. Got it installed fine. Read up on the error message saying I have to apply SP1 or SP2 or it won't work so thought sure thing I'll install SP2.

    Now I also setup an SMTP Connector for my primary domain xurial.net. The domain is setup in the local DNS server however is still hosted on other nameservers and I have set an A record for mail.xurial.net to my external IP and CNAMED the MX record to mail.xurial.net.

    I try to send out mail from Exchange and it works fine, even to remote servers, so relaying is working. I try to receive mail however with no luck.

    MX has been changed probably 2-4 hours however when I looked up mail.xurial.net I instantly had the new IP, same with everyone else I got to try it so hopefully it should have updated.

    I setup the mailboxes by simply adding users to Active Directory. It may be worth noting I added the SMTP connector after I setup the AD users & mailboxes. I also setup Recipient Policies for SMTP or something, can't remember the exact term.

    I'm still not receiving mail, port 25 incoming TCP is forwarded to the box (I missed this until recently! *oops*)

    So anyone got any ideas why this aint working? Could it just be i'm being impatient and the MX change hasn't propogated or should I be worried I've screwed up?


  • Windows has no drivers?

    I'm trying to install a Realtek 8029AS (yes old) NIC. Anyway I can't get a driver because it's "included in Windows XP" but in device manager its trying to add the card but has no drivers (at all) even in the network cards area.

    Is there a way I can get the drivers off the install cd? Like fixmbr in the recovery console?

  • Why does Vista still have XPs wallpapers?

    It should have an animated desktop with clouds moving n stuff, that would look cool Tongue Out

  • itunes 5 crashes machines

    actually it seems quicktime isn't available standalone anymore :/ and im about to install iTunes 5.0.1 on 2000.

    Well it installed fine no powering off problems, it had to reboot and had to have a disk consistency check but apart from that nothing.

    a windows pollar bear could look pretty cool Tongue Out

  • Microsoft download servers!

    I was using IE7 on Vista Beta 1, also IE6 on XP MCE 2005 and now IE6.1 on Win2k Pro. This has to be the worst yet, can't get to a single decent mirror for direct x 8.1b. Suffering it at 5.65 KB/s on a 4mbit line!

  • Windows Media Logo

    The 10 series would suffice.

    Add a button to the players to store the song you're listening to when you press it. Later on, you can review the songs to selected, and then authorize the purchase.

    Now there's an idea!

  • Microsoft download servers!

    Would it really be that hard for M$ to remove the crappy mirrors?
