    Network Software Distribution

    I will look into SCCM. I have never messed with it but after doing some reading it may just do the trick. Thank you!

    Fresh Windows 10 install questions

    I have been using the built-in defender with no issues. I've been using O&O ShutUp10:Free antispy tool for Windows 10 to disable some of the telemetrics. It encourages you to create a registry backup before proceeding, a process it helps with. I am running a 500 Samsung SSD and no special...

    Licensing question

    We have a FTP server running on our APPS server right now to send large CAD files back and forth between vendors. To interact with the file system our internal users connect via a FTP client to manage files to and from customers. If I wanted to map a drive to the FTP folder on the APPS server to...

    Self Hosted Private File Sharing

    We have to not only send files to vendors but be able to receive them and I am not sure how many of our vendors want to setup a torrent server to send us files. I will look into OwnCloud. The big reason for on-site hosting is we have to be ITAR compliant due to government contracts. A big...

    Self Hosted Private File Sharing

    I am wondering if anyone has any experience regarding self hosted private file sharing products. We are currently using an FTP to transfer technical data between our company and our vendors. We currently have 78 vendors and 15 internal users who would be accessing this to share files. Within...

    DNS Recommendations

    Thank you everyone for the information. We decided to go with GoDaddy as we already have web hosting through them and want to try to consolidate some of our services if possible.

    DNS Recommendations

    I am looking to move away from Spectrum as our DNS and was wondering what other people use. I am thinking of using GoDaddy as that is who is currently setup for this company for web hosting. I spoke with a local MSP to get suggestions and they want to re-sell me a service they provide telling me...

    Missing DNS records from server

    Son of a biscuit, that did it. I had no idea it would keep that filter on indefinitely until you turn it off. Thank you! Yeah, whoever originally setup their domain originally set it up as companyname.com

    Missing DNS records from server

    We are running a 2008 R2 that is our DC, DNS and DHCP server. I went to add a CNAME and all my records are gone. I tested the ftp.companyname.com one I recently created and it resolves correctly but the record itself is not showing up. Is there a way to get my records to show back up?

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    To give an update on this situation. I contacted Spectrum as that is where our name servers are hosted. I have spent hours on the phone being passed department to department with no one having the ability to get me access to our records. I was told they are trying to get out of the DNS hosting...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    Doing some more digging around I found out: GoDaddy is hosting the domain name which has NS records pointing to Network Solutions account pointing to the Time Warner DNS. I created an A record for the FTP pointing to our public IP on GoDaddy. I am going to give it a little time to propagate then...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    They have a bit of an unusual setup from what I can tell. The company has their domain name hosted on GoDaddy (DNS Only, Off-site). Their current website is hosted by a company called NextInteractives. From what I understand the guy running NextInteractives offered to design and host their...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    I used dnsstuff.com and found that our name servers are going through ns1.biz.rr.com and ns2.biz.rr.com. What I am stumped on though is I created a CNAME webmail.companyname.com (redirects to a hosted exchange URL from Time Warner) on our DNS server and I can successfully access that outside of...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    This is a small business setup. From what I can tell they have a DNS server setup on the DC. I know they have a vpn.companyname.com subdomain but I am not sure where it is setup. Before I was hired onto this company they utilized a local managed services business to take care of IT. I may have...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    Quick update: On a whim I decided to try forcing my server to connect on the default FTP data port, TCP 22, and it connected no problem! After some digging around I then went to the Sonicwall interface > Network > Services, found the FTP Data ports entry and modified it be a range of...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    I do not see anything in the log file trying to hit the FTP server I followed that exact KB when setting this up. I did setup ports 39000 - 39050 for data. When going through the previously mentioned KB from Sonicwall it states that this is optional. The SonicWall can determine the Data ports...

    Unable to connect to FileZilla FTP

    I have recently setup a FileZilla FTP server behind our Sonicwall appliance. It looks like the initial connection is all good, credentials are accepted, enters passive mode but when it attempts the MLSD command I get a connection refused. This only happens when connecting from an external IP...

    Powerconnect 3548 questions

    I finally got everything figured out. Once I got access to the Sonicwall I was then able to add and configure an interface for the new VLAN. Then I was able to set static IPs on this new VLAN for the new devices. The company tested connection and it looks like it is all good! Thank you for the...

    Powerconnect 3548 questions

    Hi Cmustang87, thank you for your reply. It helped set me on a path of doing a bit more research about the equipment we currently use. Since we have machines in separate buildings on separate switches I thought I should be tagging traffic to connect them to the node (on our main office...

    Help understanding CALs

    This will definitely be a small deployment and I am not too worried about this system going down. Honestly, I feel their server is a bit overkill for what this company needs. A few years ago (before I came on board) this company upgraded their existing server to a Dell VRTX with 2 PowerEdge...

    Help understanding CALs

    I was looking at the standard as I wanted people to be able to message each other. What if the server Skype server is setup on the DC server? Would we still need additional CALs? Is these even a smart thing to do? The VAR we currently use it Insight. For some reason this company is completely...

    Virtual machine memory question

    I have no idea why they are using XP 32 bit as the main OS then having me boot into a virtual machine running Windows 7 64 bit. I checked the system properties and they have 3.25 GB usable for the XP OS. I will do some research into PAE for WinXP and report back! Thanks for the reply.

    Well I did not work on it yesterday as I had other projects lined up for the day so the owner gave the company the login info to remote into the systems and check them out. It took them about 5 hours so they finally got it. I have not looked to see what they did to get everything working but I...

    Ok so a tech guy named Bob emailed me and told me that I should be using the Access version of the database now and not the SQL version because its a multi-store setup.

    I called the company and they told me to share the SQL server over the network and then tell the other machine to connect to it BUT the gentleman I spoke to is only a salesman and if I had a technical question to send it to him and he would forward it to the appropriate person. When I go into...
