I have a Softlayer Windows 2003 server and it comes with two Network cards. I was wondering how I can create a VPN to the server and then access internet from there on. Our local ISP has blocked Skype and I need to VPN into myu SL server to use it.
I happen to have a Nortel 2500 and 2600 they have really hit there limits and looking to a few alts... preferably open source or low cost... I have about 500 instant internet end points and slowly moving each location to a AVTS circuit (manage VPN via ATT).
So would any one know of a concentrator to work with nortel?...
I'm trying to setup a VPN server on windows 2003 standard. It suppose to work like this if configuration is correct: the server will have 20 static public IP addresses, each of my workstations will use one of the 20 IPs to connect to the server, then connect to the internet with the same IP it connects to the server. So if I do a IP lookup, each workstation will show a different public IP but the server will always assign the same IP to the same workstation.
Now all my workstations can connect to the server with any of the IPs I have, and they can surf the internet with no problems at all. However, if I do a IP lookup, every workstation shows the same pubilc IP which is totally not what I wanted. I have searched google and not much useful infor come up. Can any of the experts here help me out?
The Swedish parliament just passed a law mandating all information passing the Swedish borders to be copied to the government (no kidding). We wish to offer people VPN tunnels out of the country to protect their communication and therefore need:
* A location with good connectivity with Sweden (like somewhere in Europe) * A location where traffic is not normally routed through Sweden (such as Finland) * Lots of bandwidth * Many IP addresses * No storage space * Linux
I current have a VPS hosted with a host who rent racks from Gyron.net at Telstra Londong Hosting Center Datacenter (Docklands) and im very satisfied with the network but im looking to change hosts, so im looking to find hosting companies that also rent racks/network from Gyron.net.
So does anyone knows hosting companies that rent space/racks/network from Gyron.net?
i looking for the servers (powerfull and cheap) i take this post in vps forum 2 day's ago but i understand that it is better for me to take the post in dedicated forum my friend's : 1-vpn server(with many ip)-->with high transfer + good performance(for start)
2-server for starting image hosting (with high or unlimited transfer + 100mbps )+atleast 50_60gb h.d.d
I am currently with the planet and am happy with them, however as part of a new venture I need to gather a list of hosts as well as the planet that will be able to cater to the ventures needs and go to tender with the requirements.
ThePlanet offer something called a virtual rack. This is cheaper than renting a dedicated rack, allows for Gb networking but doesnt not allow for a SAN. Do other providers offer something similar? The cost of putting a machine on the virtual rack is not that much more expensive than just renting the machine. I guess there isn't too much to these set-ups to be fair.
If not, then we are looking for dedicated racks, with the ability to host a SAN at some point, but starting off with say 3 servers (2 web servers, 1 storage server with raid5 6Tb of hdd). These servers will be dealing with network cameras although I don't think that many will be streaming at once but the network capacity does need to be there.
Who's door should I be knocking on to find out some prices?
One final thing, should I bother looking for co-lo providers as well? We are in the Uk but not precious about our host being in the same country at all (it would be nice but uk prices are ££). Really, all we would be able to do with co-lo is buy the hardware outright to save price as we are not interested in looking after the hardware.
i'm trying to get a graphical interface for a VPS I recently bought. I'm currently running Ubuntu Minimal 8.01. I've read some instructions on how to install the GUI, and VNC. I cannot get this to work, does anyone have any insight?
I am looking for a reliable managed VPS host which has servers/or is based in the UK. I am transferring a high traffic site, and I'm looking for recommendations for a host offering the following:
-Managed VPS -Reliable servers -Good support, with native English language staff -U.K. based data center Any suggestions for hosts would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone had experience with clustered.net as I have seen they have a package?
I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 - 500 and then eventually up to 1,000 users onine at one time. The main attraction will be the user forums and profiles. I don't plan on having any videos or anything like that, but I will install a mambot that will integrate Google Video, etc.
I am trying to pick a VPS provider and from what I have read so far, I have kind of narrowed it down to a few places:
From reading alot so far, I would imagine I would need at least 256-512MB of RAM. Plesk sounds like a good control panel since I won't be reselling any of the space. Webmin sounds too hands on, and I know a little bit, but not a lot. The backup option that comes with Spry.com sounds tempting, but VPSLink has attractive price points. Mediatemple.net also gives you 1TB of bandwidth, a very attractive option.
I am "simply" looking to run a Joomla! community site with an estimated 250 - As long as the site can run MySQL, I am happy. Joomla!, statistics software (any suggestions) and WordPress and that is about it as far as applications.
Any suggestions on what plans or who I should go with? My budget is about $t50 a month.
The subject line pretty much sums up my major problem. My site has been intermittently slow (somtimes slow, sometimes not) for... like since I can remember. So my site isn't that big
Sometimes for me it takes forever to load a vbulletin page, or even the main page of the site. I thought I had found the problem (a mysql-intensive script), removed it, improved things quite a bit, but there is still a long way to go!
Many site users report the same exact things. "The site is sloowww" ... "It wasn't slow yesterday but it is today" ... "Today it's really fast, but last week I was having problems pulling up pages".
Its fustrating becase this is a VPS, and although I know how to use Cpanel, WHM is really big and I am not sure what I could do to speed up my website or to even begin to locate any potential problems.
My site is basically Joomla CMS, vBulletin BBS and 4images image gallery. The later two use a common user database. My current mysql usage is 327.55MB in total. Apache 1.3.34, PHP 4.4.1 and MySQL 4.1.19-standard. Powered by WHM/Cpanel & Virtuozzo.
What should I do? Where can I start? Where can I look?
