  • Passing the Firewall Torch

    I’ve had a Netscreen firewall handling my internet connection at home for almost a full decade now.  I first got my hands on a Netscreen 5 back in Feb of 2001, and it was amazing that you could get that much flexibility in such a tiny device for a reasonable price.  I quickly setup all sorts of rules and filtering that was light years ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Conclusion

    This is the sixth part in a series of articles tracking the implementation of virtualization on my home network.  Planning for the project originally started at the end of 2007, with some equipment purchased in early 2008, but the bulk of the work was completed in the past 2 months. For those interested in seeing how this all played out over ...

  • Home Network Overhaul 2010 – Part 2

    It has been a very productive year so far, as it pertains to my ongoing Home Network Re-Engineering Project.  In fact, the past few days have been especially productive. I was finally able to fix the hardware problem that prevented my old domain controller from booting, and since the boys’ old Windows XP machine began to fail (spontaneous ...

  • It’s FIOS Time

    The past month or two has been interesting for my home network from a technology standpoint.  I have a server that went down because of a motherboard issue; I need some new drive rails to bring my Windows 2008 server online; my cable service from Comcast went out for a couple days; and I finally made the jump to Verizon FIOS. It’s only been ...

  • Let's Get Ready to Virtualize!

    After many months, and a few miscellaneous upgrades to other parts of my network, I'm finally about to get a jump on my home virtualization overhaul project.  A number of things have changed from the original plan, however. Since that plan was presented back in October, Microsoft has released Windows Server 2008, with a beta of Hyper-V, ...

  • The Great eMail Saga

    Boy, do I have a tale to tell about messaging mayhem involving Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007, VPOP3 and several antispam products and services.  Oh, and let's not forget about Public Folders... This is a long tale, and has been in the making for several months, but stay tuned -- the story will soon be told. I just need a couple of hours to do ...

  • Home Network Virtualization Project, Part 2

    When I wrote part 1 of the home network virtualization project, I didn't realize that I actually had an updated network diagram available. I created it last October, but never posted it -- for reasons which completely escape me right now. I suppose that I was waiting until I actually performed the upgrades at the end year before I would post ...

  • Vista Upgrade Speed Bumps

    In today's lesson, we learn why pre-planning is very important... So, I try to perform the dreaded in-place upgrade of my XP x64 laptop to Vista Ultimate x64, after doing all the nice things like backing everything up, and ensuring that all apps will be suitable, and what have you.  It's a new laptop, so I'm not worried about clutter or ...

  • Windows Vista is finally here...

    At the retail level, anyway. And I am no closer to having it installed at home than I was a month ago, when I laid out my grand plans for software upgrades.  I have been heavily involved in a lot of projects lately, both at work and at church, so time management is crucial.  Let's see what February brings! Anyway, back to ...
