Blocking Facebook (or just Facebook games) on a SonicWall firewall

by on Nov.26, 2012, under Helpful Links

So, you sick of having folks use up company resources playing Farmville at work?

If you have one of the fancier, newer SonicWall Routers, you can just Block the Games and they can do updates to the company Facebook site(s) using this technote from SonicWall.

If you don’t have any legitimate use for Facebook, GMail, etc. at the office and just want to block them altogether, or want to block sites using the Content Filter Service, then use this tech note instead.

Hope this helps.  (Sorry Facebook addicts)

My primary default Gateway shows as 0.0.0.0 using DHCP

by on Nov.21, 2012, under Helpful Links

So, for some unknown reason, your workstations that were working fine before now are getting a Gateway of 0.0.0.0 IN ADDITION to the proper Gateway, but the default is 0.0.0.0 so they can’t get online.

  1. Get to a DOS prompt as an Administrator
  2. Type route delete 0.0.0.0 and hit enter
  3. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
  4. Type ipconfig /renew and hit enter

It may be the Bonjour service  causing this.  To stop it, use msconfig to stop it from running at startup.

Hope this helps

So, the issue is that Windows client computers connect fine, but Mac computers’s get an error that appears to be a licensing error We’ve seen this cause an issue that appears to be a licensing issues but seems to fixed with a newer version of the RDC software on the Mac.

We found this newer version of the Mac RDC Client seems to fix the problem.

  2. Double-click it to install extract and open up the RDC installation program
  3. Double-click the “RDC Installer”
  4. Click Continue, Continue, Agree, Continue, Install and enter the password for your Mac when prompted, etc. until it finishes the install.  After this, there should be an icon for the Remote Desktop Connection on your Dock at the bottom of the screen
  5. Click the RDC icon in the dock to launch the software, and in the box that appears, for “Computer:”, type the name of your remote server
  6. At the login prompt, “User Name” is your login ID to the network, usually first letter of your first name and your last name or the prefix to your e-mail address; Password is the one you use to login to the network, and Domain is the one the office uses
  7. Click OK, and then Connect to the message about the Certificate and that should get you in.
