Unusual Request - XP Or Vista VPS

Nov 28, 2007

I have an somewhat unusual requirement. I need a hosted Vista or XP desktop somewhere.

This is not to host a server application. The reason I need it is that I need to give my staff access to an application that only runs on an XP or vista desktop environment, and I dont want the software in question installed on their pc, instead they will log on via remote desktop and use it that way. The application does *not* run on Win Server 2003.

I have looked high and low, but all the Windows VPS services on the market seem to be hosting Win Server 2003 exclusively, which is no use to me. Does anyone out there know if it is possible to get hosted XP or Vista anywhere?

I am aware that there are a couple of providers who will host a vmware vm for you but even they seem to be oriented towards Win Server, which is no use to me.

Amazing, But Unusual...

Oct 23, 2007

Since a couple a days I have a hosting problem (500 error). My provider told me that I have a script who is using more resources then the shared hosting server allows. BUT, I only have 1000 uniques/day for all my sites. From my point of view, that wasn't enough to explain it. So I dug a little bit in my stats:

Last 5 days. Stats from my hosting
Thursday : 483 uniques
Friday : 403 uniques
Saturday : 508 uniques
Sunday : 53,835 uniques???
Monday : 75,964 uniques???

Most of this traffic came from : 163data.com.cn

I don't think it's a "legit" traffic, because Google analystic gave me only 11 uniques yesterday and Adsense +/- 125 impressions.

Unusual Spam Problem Being Reported By Data Center

Mar 18, 2008

I have an unusual spam problem on my server being reported by my data center (theplanet). They have opened up an abuse ticket on the issue as they say it appears my server is sending out child porn spam. Something I am obviously keen to stop.

I've had the mail logs checked, and there's not been any sign of the cpu going above normal acceptable levels, nor can I see any processes running that appear to be sending out spam.

The only information I have to go on, is the mail headers provided by the data centre themselves, which I will copy and paste below.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing this? or what I can do to stop it?

Whenever anything like this has happened before, there's usually something like dm.cgi being run on the server which can be traced and stopped, but with this there's nothing.

As you'll see from the report below, it even states that it has been received from a different server, but it just says xyvcx or something similar...

PHP In Vista

Aug 2, 2007

Kevin Yank's book does not deal with Vista, and I'm completely stuck - whereas it was straightforward to install PHP on XP, nothing fits with Vista's IIS. Any idea where I could find the procedure ? I've tried quite a few sites, but nada.

Set Up IIS Locally On Vista For Testing

Oct 14, 2008

I'm moving from my old XP PC to a new PC with Vista (a mistake, but that's a different story).

I'm trying to set up some sites in IIS so that I can develop locally without having to publish to a remote web server.

I've installed IIS7 from the control panel, and am now looking to set up my first site. I've put the site name in, and the path to the site on the computer, but I'm getting an error in the 'bindings' section. I've left all of this empty because I don't know what it means (it didn't ask for any of this in IIS on XP) but when I try to add the site it gives me the following error:

"The binding '*:80:' is assigned to another site. If you assign the same binding to this site, you will only be able to start one of the sites. Are you sure that you want to add this duplicate binding?"

Does anyone know what to do here? I'll need to add about 100 domains to IIS so I want them all to be accessible locally. How do I do this?

I have Vista Premium. I just added IIS7 to it. When I run IIS Manager I get an error window saying:

Windows 2003 SBS And Vista Gotchas

Apr 12, 2008

Well, my company got a Windows 2003 Small Business Server and most of our workstations were running Windows Vista. Now I ran into some issues I thought I'd document for the benefit of those attempting connections of Vista Business and up workstations to a Windows 2003 Small Business Server:

Windows 2003 Small Business Server Vista and Outlook 2007 Compatibility Upgrade

Before you throwing your Vista clients at your Windows 2003 Small Business Server, you're going to need to make sure you have the Windows Vista and Outlook 2007 compatibility update as outlined by KB926505, the knowledge base entry on Vista and Windows 2003 SBS. This will require a restart of the server to fully apply the effects of the patch.

Updating workstations with existing users

Now, you add your users through the Server Management tool, and it tells you to run [url]on the client workstation to setup the process. Before you do this, you need to separate out your systems with existing users (and thus profiles) and your systems with no established users. For the ones that have existing users, you'll need to install a Win32_UserProfile WMI patch. If you don't apply this patch, then you can't migrate your local PC user settings to the Windows 2003 SBS associated user when you run the setup (Unless you install the patch, then re-run the wizard).

Running the connection wizard

Okay, so let's say your server is named SBS2003, now you point your client workstation to [url]and you'll be asked for the username and password of an existing user on the Windows 2003 SBS. Enter it in and 2 things can happen:

Runs without a hitch

You get an error about copying Client Setup files

Now here's the painful one. There's a number of ways to approach this issue, so be sure to go through them all:

Point your DNS servers to the Windows 2003 SBS and ONLY the Windows 2003 SBS. This solved my particular issue.

You may have an issue with required encryption in IIS. See this post for a possible solution.

You may have an issue with TCP offload. Check this post for more information. Basically you need to disable it.

IIS is bound to a specific IP. Try changing it to "All Unassigned" instead.

Now then, the wizard should run, and your workstation should now be latched onto the domain Not quite done yet though.

Network Discovery

I found my workstations couldn't see network machines after I attached them to the network. Trying to turn on Network Discovery in the Network Sharing Center seemed to fail. To rectify this, I took 2 steps:

Enabled Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) for the domain to get my network map. You'll also need to make sure LLTD is enabled on your NIC properties as well (in the form of a checked box).

I had to turn on Network Discovery and File and Printer Sharing in the Windows Firewall settings. To do this I did: Control Panel

Windows Firewall
Bring up the exceptions tab
Make sure Network Discovery and File and Printer Sharing were enabled

Then viola, network thar she blows. Also, I found that when I shared directories on the Windows 2003 SBS and the client had permissions to access the share, it wouldn't showup until I went to the Publish tab in the share's properties on the server and made it published on active directory. After doing that and refreshing my Windows 2003 SBS showed up in the Network.

CPanel Stopped Working In Vista

Jan 4, 2008

Yesterday I could reach all of my cPanels on a Vista laptop; today they all time out. I can reach them with other computers. It doesn't matter if I go to mysite.com/cpanel or mysite.com:2082. I even added a port 2082 under Windows Firewall; no change. I'm not using any 3rd party firewalls. I did install a bittorrent client last night, then uninstalled it when it didn't work.

Vista + Outlook 2003 = SPAM

Feb 7, 2007

I have a customer that relies heavily on her email (sends/receives about 200 emails each day). Last Friday we traded her Windows XP computer for a new Windows Vista system.

Now since that time one of her main contacts is unable to receive any emails. She is able to receive messages from that contact but the replies are not received by the customer. I talked with the technical support group on the receiving end and they tracked it back and said that the emails are sitting in their spam filter.

What change(s) were made that changed this trusted email account to a spam account just by upgrading to Vista? I ran the DNS Tools Spam tool and the domain and IP address is not listed in any database. The only thing that showed was something about the PTR not found in the domain record. Is this something that is required?

ErrorMessage When Trying To Activate IIS7 In Vista Ultimate 64-bit

Sep 10, 2009

When I try to activate IIS7 in Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit everything seems to go well but after a while when the progress bar has gone full and that window has disappeared an error message appears saying "An error has occured. Not all features were successfully changed". If I don't restart immediately but instead try to open the IIS7 default page it's up. But after rebooting it's gone. The iis7.log says:

Vista :: There Is A Problem With This Website's Security Certificate

Jan 26, 2008

i got a new computer with vista and i was attempting to check out one of my own websites and i get the following error:

There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.

Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.
We recommend that you close this webpage and do not continue to this website.
Click here to close this webpage.
Continue to this website (not recommended).

i guess at that initial point, most people will bail. but if they are brave enough to forge ahead, they then get this:

This error occurs when the certificate has been issued by a certification authority that is not recognized by Internet Explorer. It is unlikely that this error will occur on a legitimate business or banking site. Phishing sites often attempt to use fake certificates that will trigger this error.

and of course, there is no lock icon at the bottom of the page. there is not even a way for me to install the certificate. this seems libelous to me.

Windows Vista, Passive FTP, Linksys Routers

Jan 21, 2008

My roommate ran into this problem a few weeks ago. He could not connect to a webserver. Turns out it is the way that some of the ports are being handled when passive FTP is used.

I was wondering if a lot of web hosting companies are seeing some complaints of (passive) FTP not working properly? And who are you blaming?

He had to install some firmware updates to the Linksys router as well but then that started to crash the Internet connection (something we cannot have). So the router update was uninstalled.

He had to do quite a bit and finally started to use the control panel to upload. He has not tried FileZilla yet but I tried it on my system to connect to his server and it failed.

Looking For Backup Solution For Windows XP/Vista Platform Client

May 23, 2008

I'd like to ask for opinion what is the best way to backup a client PC in Windows XP/Vista platform.

For example, each PC has a folder inside c:Server

Every 17:00 hours, the PC will FTP all data inside c:Server to backup server.

When it is done, the manager is able to access to his files & do his work remotely online via the server at night in his home. Another reason to have this backup is because they want to secure all the files from any viruses or any accidents in the office during non office hours as the files is important to them. The next morning, he is able to continue his work as normal when files are being merged.

Any kind of such solution available?

HIt Vs. Request - Is There A Difference?

May 10, 2008

I'm curious. I have read some stuff recently about Amazon, Mosso and other clouds. I know Mosso has switched over to a request based pricing model and I realized that I am not sure exactly what a 'request' is.

I think that a hit, as tallied by AWStats, Webalizer, etc. would be the same thing as a request, but I wasn't 100% sure if that was the case with Mosso. I actually contacted Mosso support (someone I know is considering using them) to ask them for clarification on a request. They stated that a page with two images would be three requests, one for each image and one for the page itself. I asked if it was the same as 'hits' and they said no, it isn't. This didn't sound right to me, because my understanding of 'hits' is the same as how he described 'requests'.

So, I figured I would just ask the experts on WHT.

Ping Request

Jul 25, 2007

Can I have some of you ping 24fans.net and let me know what your results are? Also where you're located would be good.

My ISP is being crappy and my dsl line is basically down ever few minutes. They're supposed to fix it tomorrow.

My current results are:

Reply from bytes=32 time=66ms TTL=51
Reply from bytes=32 time=59ms TTL=51
Reply from bytes=32 time=65ms TTL=51
Reply from bytes=32 time=58ms TTL=51

This doesn't really have anything to do with my dsl being crappy, but rather I'm just curious as to what kind of responses people are getting around the world.
