I've been collecting quotes from various colo providers for 1 full cabinet in Virginia. I've been surprised at how much power costs these days, but I also understand power is in short supply.
One quote I got raised a question though. For a Class C (non-portable) IP address space, they want $256/month (so I guess that's $1 per IP). Their other pricing seems in line with the other quotes I have received, but no other place wants to charge for IP addresses like that. Is $256/month for a Class C considered normal market rate?
Does that reflect their costs? Are they paying a price per month upstream for IPs?
I am hosted with ASmallOrange. I have always had fast uploads but recently that have been rather slow. 1-4kbs but now up to 20kbs. I think it depends on the file type. I am not sure.
This is starting to stress me out because it takes hours to upload 8 or 9 mbs of stuff.
What is a normal upload rate? How do I know if this is a problem with my host or with my connection?
I also upgraded to the lastest version of Cyberduck but I do not have OSX. I still have OS9. Could that be a problem?
When I try uploading a file of stuff it says 2 or 3kbs but when I upload an 11mb file it says 20kbs. It is so strange. I can't find a really good way to tract it. I am just watching the upload as it flickers and shows me a rate but it doesn't always. Deleting files is fast. And downloading normal files from the internet is about 144kbs.
Thanks to rising costs of energy we have received notices from GNAX that they are raising costs of power and colo space. Has anyone else seen similar notices from other colo's already ?
I know we have seen power rates increase the last few months in our homes, we talked about that here in another thread. It was envitable that colo facilities followed suit. How does this affect the other colos and providers?
There are several big domains that frequently defer accepting mail from us causing long delays or rejections. Google, AOL, and Yahoo are examples. I'm considering trying the suggestions found in this online posting regarding rate limiting the sending of messages to those domains. In the below URL, please see the section titled "Different policies for different domains"...URL....
Would these changes be safe to make on a CentOS 6.4 server running Plesk 11.0.9 with Postfix 2.8.4? Would any special modifications for Plesk be necessary?
I just got a new managed switch, SRW224G4. I'm planning to setup MRTG on another server to monitor this switch's network ports. How do I go about setting up the MRTG to 'read' the statistics from the switch?
I do not know if this is the right forum to post on, or if this is even the right site since this is not technically "Web Hosting" related, however it is the largest technical community I know of.
I have been setting up small networks in various branches of a medical company. I am using a linksys wired router connected to a static IP through a SDSL modem. The DHCP is disabled, and the two computers and the print server have also been assigned static IPs.
The problem I am having is that the linksys router will work fine, and then go offline.
The linksys router will no longer be pingable internally. Unplugging the router from the power briefly then plugging it back in resolves the problem temporarily. Sometimes it will become unresponsive again within 30 seconds to a minute, however other times it will go days without this problem occuring.
I thought it might be a defective router, however I took it back and got a replacement, however this is continuing to occur, so it must be something else. The two computers are Windows XP with static IPs set to 10.88.102.xxx as well as the print server. and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The gateway has the IP 10.88.102.1. The mask is set as the same on the router side. The DNS server IPs are the ones given by the ISP and are defined in both the client TCP properties and on the router.
I figured since the network was so small, it would make sense to just buy a cheap linksys router, however the response I got from someone at experts-exchange says that this is just the MO of the crappy residential end of linksys. This surprises me since linksys is a division of cisco.
I use a Linksys BEFW11S4 at my home and at my office. A few months back I replaced the one at my office with a linux gateway because I found some weird routes to Department of Defense IP addresses. I assumed there was a backdoor or something but didn't give it any more thought.
I'm now looking at the static routes on my home router and I found something very peculiar. I've attached the screenshots.
Basically there is a static route to 220.127.116.11 which according to ARIN is registered to the "Naval Research Laboratory". The subnet mask looks very very odd - 18.104.22.168
Perhaps I'd just assume that this was a firmware bug, but isn't it a big coincidence that the first time I found routes to the DoD and now I'm finding routes to Naval Research Laboratory?
i have just installed esx server from vmware which as far as i know is a moded version of redhat. i just brought that lan card and put it in. when intsalling the os it seemed to pick it up straight away. and it wanted to use the tulip driver and infact on the driver cd tuplip is given. so i thought it was all well uptill i tried logging in through the browser insterface. it came up with nothing. so i did ifconfig which only showed the lo device. i then did a lsmod tulpis ind it brought up this.
im not very good with linuk so im not sure what the interface is called. i tried ifconfig eth0 up but i dont know how to check if its called eth0 or somehting else. their is no gui just a bash.
i then tried netconfig. it worked fine and i restarted the box. it still dident come up.
so i thought maybe the driver wasent installed after all so i went to the cd and got the file off it and when i typed in make i got
gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -06 -I/usr/src/linux/include -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -DMODVERSIONS -c -o pci-scan.o pci-scan.c pci-scan.c: In function 'init_module': pci-scan.c:558: wrning: implicit declaration of fundction 'apm_register_callback' pci-scan.c: In function 'cleanup_module': pci-scan.c:565: warning : implicit declaration of function 'apm_unregister_callback' gcc -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -06 -I/usr/src/linux/include -pipe -fno-strength-reduce -DMODVERSIONS -c -o tulip.o tulip.c tulip.c: In function 'tulip_open': tulip.c:1488: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c:1489: structure has no member named 'start' tulip.c: In function 'tulip_start_xmit': tulip.c:2607: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c:2640: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c: In function 'tulip_interrupt': tulip.c:2659: structure has no member named 'interrupt' tulip.c:2663: structure has no member named 'interrupt' tulip.c:2744: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c:2748: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c:2845: structure has no member named 'interrupt' tulip.c: In function 'tulip_close': tulip.c:2991: structure has no member named 'start' tulip.c:2992: structure has no member named 'tbusy' tulip.c: In function 'tulip_get-stats': tulip.c:3031: structure has no member named 'start' tulip.c: In function 'private_ioctl': tulip.c:3117: "SIOCSPARAMS' undeclared (first use in this function) tulip.c:3117: (Each undeclard identifier is reported only once tulip.c:3117: for each function it appears in.) tulip.c: In function 'set_rx_mode': tulip.c:3303: structure has no member named 'tbusy' make: *** [tulip.o] Error 1
so now im stuck. i have no idea on what to do next.
i know this isent the speciality of thsi frum but you have helped me so many times before i thought i should give you a shot at this.
I am just in the process of setting up a new rack for some lower end clients.
At present we have both a local (National) and international traffic split. We need to offer our clients a 100/100 port speed on the national route/bgp/ip range but only a set amount on the international range. The port speed/throughput for international traffic would need to be as low as 128k/128k.
I would also like to have the flexibility to impose data limits on the international link as apposed to bandwidth shaping.
I have a spare Cisco 3750G-48TS I was hoping to utilize for the main switch on this rack (SFP Ports for multiple uplinks, National/International)
Hardware/Server wise what will be the easiest way to achieve this?
