Re: No longer getting post notifications via email

The messages are being sent by a mail server in the c2.dal.innoscale.net domain, but adding the Penguinblog.com in the FROM header. The FROM header is what mail clients like Outlook use to show who the message was from, which is what spoofers use to trick people all the time. The MAILFROM header is ...

Re: Microsoft: If you're on Windows 10 version 1803, you'll be automatically upgraded

+1 on the 1903 stability. I've done about 20+ in-place upgrades and a handful of fresh 1903's and haven't had a single issue.

Re: No longer getting post notifications via email

Thanks, Darcy. You can delete that header info if you want (you left your email address in there in a few spots)...I got what I needed. I also found the email a thread option on the boards here...never noticed that before. I sent a few tests and they are marked as spam because of this: Authenticatio...

Re: No longer getting post notifications via email

My bet is that the sending email system is not authorized to send as the pcabusers.org domain (if that's the domain it's trying to send from?). The domain's SPF record is: v=spf1 a mx ip4:208.65.200.160 ?all If that IP is not the current SMTP server's source IP, then that's why the messages are bein...

Re: Adding a "hot spot" to a existing network

I glanced through that software and wow is it a finicky mess. Not sure if this is exactly what you are seeing, but in this vid, the guy shows the wifi config screen and it is missing (or at least grayed out) the station mode settings, then he clicks around and it appears. I didn't try subtitles, in ...

Re: Mounting/Unmounting a local drive for "cold" backups

The free Veeam Backup & Recovery Community Edition is fantastic for a full featured backup solution. The CE gives you full featured scheduled backups (full + incremental, synthetic backups, etc) and multiple physical and/or virtual systems with the free license. Check it out if you haven't. I us...

Re: VPN recommendations

I use my Edgerouter X for VPN. It's a basic L2TP IPSec VPN. My home upload is only 20Mbps, so performance isn't awesome, but it gets the job done for browsing and checking the home security cams while traveling.

Re: Found a Teamviewer alternative

I use the free ScreenConnect (now ConnectWise Control) license that allows 1 concurrent connection and three remote agents. Works great.

Re: Cloud storage recommendations

Did you end up finding anything? I'd be surprised if you find an unlimited service that allows NAS backups...haven't seen that before. You can get unlimited for desktops all day long, but I'm not aware of any unlimited on the NAS side. If there are, businesses would be loading up on that and the pro...

Re: There’s a Heartwarming Story Behind This New Star Trek: Picard Poster

i haven't dug into what the storyline is exactly, but from what i've seen, it's going to be decent. bringing back 7of9 and some kind of Borg conspiracy (maybe Starfleet trying to use Borg tech and it going wrong) is pretty cool.

looks good to me...he even said the movie is basically an homage to aviation above all else. i'm surprised Cruise didn't insist on piloting everything in real time as well...hahaha

Re: App replacement time: WinZip & TextPad out, 7Zip & Notepad++ in

Notepad + + has been a go-to for as long as I can remember for work use. It handles large log files without an issue and makes parsing things a lot easier.
