Deciphering Router Names

Feb 12, 2008

Is there a list somewhere of what the various hostnames one sees when running a traceroute?

Some are obvious, but quite a few aren't.

I come across car1 and car2 a lot, but can't quite figure those out.

(Example: -- the "gigabitethernet" is obvious, as is bos1 (Boston). But car2? And it shows up towards the other end: (Bonus: what's the "ae" at the start denoting?)

csw, ebr, mpr, and ash are all common followed by a single number, too. (pos and tge show up on RCN a lot.) cr, dcr, ecr, hr on Savvis?

Can You Add Too Many Aliased Domain Names

Jul 10, 2007

Is it possible to add too many aliased domain names on a Dedicated server? I have Hostgator's most powerful dedicated server and I added probably 150 domain names as aliases to one of my websites. Now today all of the sudden none of my other sites will load on the web. When I try to go to one of my sites it just thinks and thinks but never loads.

I'm using WHM with cPanel. Can aliased names cause too much server load? Some of those 150 domains get a little traffic but not much.

Domain Names Not Resolving

Dec 16, 2007

Ocassionally some users have problems to connect the their websites, they can connect to the server via browser and can ping it and tracert the server IPs fine, they can also browse domains having a dedicated IP address. But they can't connect or ping their websites from their end, basically I think the domain name is not resolving.

From our end and the rest of users everything works fine.

Once I get a complain of this type I try whatever I can do

Check to see if their IP is not blacklisted
Restart named service
Restart apache service
But most of the time this doesn't work at all.

Exactly as the problem comes it goes, nothing I did seems to have any effect on the solution. It goes and ocassionally reappears.

Would you suggest me what would I do to find where the problem is and try to solve it.

Odd Domain Names Using My Server IPs

Sep 22, 2007

I have 10 dedicated Ip addresses and recently spotted in my stats for one of my sites, that some odd domain names were mirroring my site. On checking they were using my IP address and displaying my website.

I have no idea how they could have done this.

I changed my sites IP address to anopther in my range, however these domain names still point to my IP and whatever site I have put there.

Someone has said to me it is a form of phishing, but I dont know how they could have done this and whether I can somehow stop this happening. The domains that have kind of hijacked my IP are
ipinikoparan dot com
durmakyokyoladevam dot com

odd enough domain names, could someone have set this up and is it some kind of security risk?

Router DS3 And OC3?

Feb 18, 2008

What routers would you recommend that is capable of doing BGP routing between multiple DS3, OC3's and Gig-E interfaces?

View 14 Replies View Related


May 26, 2007

I am having a big question which has been often asked, but which all the time depends on the network topology; so first let's be honnest :

- I have no experience with BGP / OSPF
- I have no experience with routers (except SOHO models
- I will not have to make this to work in a productive environment

So in the next month we will get an AS number and few IP addresses; the goal is to test drive a gigabit network before using it as productive network;

I would like to ask some advices here for early all aspecsts, let's show some important points :

- Which brand?
- Which model?
- Maybe refurbished?

The key points for me:

I am looking for a cheap chasis but extensible with time when it will be needed

- Extensible system
- Very cheap for small use (at beginning maximum $ 2-3k)
- Trafic rate : ~ 100 MBit/s to 4-5 GBit/s
- Type of trafic : HTML / JPG / GIF / PNG / CSS / EXE / ZIP (shared hosting network)

Feb 21, 2007

getting my own AS number, but this seems to require also a router. I dont really have a strong knowledge of routing, just basic knowledge.

As I think I understood, I have two possibilities for routing, to buy a ready-made router (Cisco, Juniper, Nortel,) or to simply setup a simple box with Linux or BSD OS, some NIC and use a software such as Zebra, Quagga, etc

So my question is :

- Is it possible to use for professional purposes a BSD box with Zebra ?
- What is entry price for a good Cisco router (approximately) ?
- Does BASIC routing setup requires a very strong knowledge ?

In case this would became concrete soon, people answering could maybe get some paid work doing this for us.

Hosts That Allow Spaces In File Names?

Apr 17, 2008

Are there any web hosts that allow spaces in file names?

I am building a web site using Adobe GoLive. It contains many photo galleries using Adobe Photoshop CS3 (Adobe Media Gallery). When I upload a test site to my domain hosted by Yahoo using SmartFTP, it is rejected because the file names of my photos contain spaces. See <> When I look at other photographers' sites, many use real world file names with spaces. I have inquired at two other large web hosts and they tell me that spaces will appear on their sites as "%20". My test site looks fine when previewed on my web browser with spaces. Their answer is to use underscores. Am I asking too much for a web host that allows file names in english?

Register Good Domain Names

Oct 13, 2008

I found good domain available names and when I tried to register using some webhosting companies they were first shown as available and in the next step of registration they were claimed to be taken. It does not happen with "not so good" names.

Can someone comment this and share his/her experience.

Dealing With Strange File Names

Apr 30, 2007

I have a spider that is saving a few images files everyday on my servers. Due to the fact that the images are dynamically created the spider is not only saving them without an extention, but also using charachters from the link to create those file names.

I end up with:

.... and so on.

(there is no problems browsing those image files

What I need is to copy those files or move them to file names with an extention (png) for protection reasons.

I failed using cp, mv in doing so. it seams that the OS doesn't see those files as files.

That is how those files appear in ssh:

Two Domain Names For One Hosting Account

Jan 30, 2007

I have several domain names and I pay for hosting for each domain name. Each domain name gets little traffic, uses little bandwidth, and little storage space. I would like to pay for hosting once and share the bandwidth and storage space amongst the multiple sites. Do you know of a hosting company that offers this? I suppose it would involve having one hosting account and multiple IP addresses that resolve to different folders in your account?

A Multiple WAN Router

May 17, 2009

I am looking for a good router which will handle two separate WAN connections and bridge them together. Basically, we have DSL at our office (1.5mbps down / 769kbps up), its the only service we can get, cable is not offered, and a T1 inst fast enough and costs too much. We require a faster connection, doing Skype, VPN connections to servers, desktop sharing etc.

Basically we want to order another DSL line 1.5mbps down / 768 kbps up and join it together with our current DSL connection for a total of 3mbps down/1.5mbps up.

Just want to make sure this is possible and if you guys can recommend a router brand and model. To clerify, we don't just want redunacy/fail over, we need to utilize both DSL connections at the same, as if they were one.

Mutliple WAN Router

May 19, 2009

We are looking for a good multiple WAN router for our office. We just ordered two DSL 3.0mbps down / 768kbps up lines.

Here are the requirements:

--> Under $500

--> 2 WAN Load Balanced And Fail Over Support

--> Smart enough to handle special session state traffic. Example, if you start a HTTPS session on one DSL line it has to stay on that line. If you start an FTP session connection on one line it has to stay on that line.

--> VPN Tunnel Site-To-Site Support, Only need a max of 1 site-to-site tunnel, but nice to have more just in case.

--> Standard SPI Firewall With Port Forwarding

--> Reserve LAN Static IP's

--> Firewall throughput of at least 10mbps

Router VS Switch

Feb 13, 2008

We have a small hosting company (currently 24 racks) that we are expanding to hold 100 racks. We have several 3640 series routers behind a 7200 series router (our edge router) that feed into numerous 2950 switches and 515 & 525 pix firewalls then into the racks with customer supplied switches within the rack. I want to replace all the 3640 and 2950 switches with a 6500 series switch. The only routing we do within the 3640's is subnet routing to the switches which make up individual networks for each customer. My goal is to use the 6500 switch to limit bandwidth for each port feeding a customer and to eliminate all but the 7200 router and the 2950 switches. Does anyone know of a reason or reasons this would not work or if it's just a bad idea. Looking for pro's and con's,
