The Greenbow IPSec VPN client

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I was searching Google for an “universal” IPSec VPN client for Windows and I passed by website http://www.thegreenbow.com. I decided to give a try to their product called TheGreenBow IPSec VPN Client. I saw that they have also a mobile version but I need VPN client for my laptop so I decided to try this first.

I was impressed by simple installation and ease of use… I decided to write a short article and to attach some screenshots for you to see how simple it is to create / configure VPN tunnels with The Greenbow VPN Client.

Another great thing is that they have configuration examples for gateways on their website. If you are using let say Zyxel routers/firewalls/VPN gateways or let say m0n0wall VPN gateway just follow the examples on http://www.thegreenbow.com/vpn_gateway.html

Check my overview:

NT Backup notification sender configuration utility

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

If you want to get NT Backup logs to your mailbox you can take advantage of IIS SMTP pickup folder or Exchange pickup folder installed on your server. Pickup folder “grabs” generated mail message and sends it to the address. This utility allows you to create VBS and BATch file that you need to complete this action. You just need to run the utility and then to schedule BATch file. If you would like to change something you can do it as the source is published. / Ce zelite poročila (log datoteke) programa NT backup poslati na vaš e-mail naslov lahko izkorstite IIS-evo SMTP pickup mapo ali pickup mapo vasih Exchange streznikov (2000, 2003, 2007). Iz Pickup folder-ja SMTP servis “pograbi” zgenerirano mail datoteko in jo nato dostavi na elektronski naslov. Moje orodje omogoca izdelavo VBS in BATch datoteke, ki pripravita vse potrebno za izvršitev takšne akcije. Po tem, ko zaženete orodje in izdelate konfiguracijski datoteki pripravite scheduled task s katerem ob določeni uri poganjate BATch datoteko. Ce zelite v programu kaj spremeniti to lahko naredite, saj je poleg izvršilnega programa (.exe) objavljena tudi izvorna koda.

Velikost map v raziskovalčevem oknu Windows2000/XP/2003 / Map size in explorer window Windows2000/XP/2003

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

Velikokrat se zgodi, da bi rad pregledal velikosti map kar v raziskovalčevem oknu. Še posebej je ta primer izrazit pri “Users shared folders” na strežniku, kjer bi radi enostavno ugotovili kateri uporabnik zasede na strežniškem diskovju največ prostora. !!!Pozor, ne instalirajte programske opreme na streznik temveč na eno od delovnih postaj. In prej preberite rubriko “Known issues!”!!! / It happens sometimes that you would like to know the size of folders directly from explorer window. My experience is that I am sometimes curious to see which user uses most server disk space in “Users shared folders” on server. I suggest to try the folowing software – for me, it worked perfectly. !!!Do not install it directly on server – install it on a workstation. And first read “Known issues!”!!!
