11How do I bind my additional IPs?
Here is the simplest way of binding your additional IPs: 1) Find out which interface is your public [root@LSN-D#### ~]# route | grep -v "10." | grep -m 1 "255.255" | awk '{ print $8 }' eth1 This shows that my public interface (does not have a "10." address) is eth1. 2) Create the route file Before running the command below, change "eth1" to your public interface from step 1 and set your START and END IP addresses in the range. Note:Your IPADDR_START should be your second usable IP as your primary is already bound. The IPADDR_END value is your last usable IP. If you are unsure what these values are please check your welcome e-mail or open a support ticket. echo "IPADDR_START=123.123.123.4 IPADDR_END=123.123.123.5 CLONENUM_START=0" >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1-range0 3) Restart your network interface service network restart
12How do I run a ping?
PING stands for Packet INternet Groper. This is a simple diagnostic tool implemented in both Windows and Linux that enables you the ability to test for basic communication between two network nodes within a LAN or across the WAN/Internet. The concept is simple - a special packet is sent from a source machine to a destination machine at which the destination machine responds back. The time it takes for this process to complete helps determine two things: Does the destination machine respond? How long does it take the destination machine to respond back? To run this tool is very simple. For windows you simply open a command prompt: Go to Start->run->type CMD->press enter Within the command prompt you will type: ping destination-IP -n 10 For example: ping 4.2.2.2 -n 10
13How do I run a traceroute?
Both Windows and Linux have the ability of diagnosing the health of a connection between a source and destination machine by also testing the communication status of the devices that make the connection possible. Windows uses the command tracert for this utility. Linux uses the command traceroute for this utility. The route is determined by examining the ICMP Time Exceeded messages sent back by intermediate routers. Note that some routers silently drop packets with expired TTLs and are invisible to TRACERT / Traceroute utilities. How to run a traceroute Windows Open a command prompt by going to Start->run->type command->press enter. Type the command: tracert For example: C:\>tracert 4.2.2.2 Linux For linux the command would be: traceroute For example: traceroute 4.2.2.2
14Large file transfer gives error: Corrupted MAC on input
Source: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/60764 Symptom When you transfer a large file by HTTP it will disconnect and give you this error: Disconnecting: Corrupted MAC on input. This can also happen on SSH, FTP or other protocols as this is a bug with the kernel driver for the network. Solution Turn off "offload check summing" with the following command: ethtool -K eth0 rx off tx off Depending on the Ethernet driver in use this may not work as some drivers do not support turning off this feature.
15Recieving an "ip_conntrack: table full" error.
On OpenVZ/HyperVM machines sometimes the ip_conntrack table will become full and drop packets. You can tell if it is doing this by looking in your /var/log/messages file. To find out the current limit run: sysctl net.ipv4.netfilter.ip_conntrack_max Then to increase it edit /etc/sysctl.conf and change the line net.ipv4.netfilter.ip_conntrack_max = to a higher number. Adding 5000 or 10000 to the current max should be fine. You do not need to go crazy. One you have saved the file, to reload the new configuration run: sysctl -p You should be all set and the machine should not be dropping any packets.

Hotlink Protection prevents other web sites from directly linking to certain files (typically images) that are on your web site. This tutorial will assume that you are logged into your cPanel. If you are having trouble doing that, please see the tutorial named "How to Login to cPanel". The purpose of Hotlink Protection is so that people can't link directly to images within your web site. You want to prevent this especially if you have copyrighted images, or simply to save on your bandwidth usage. By directly linking to your site, they are stealing your bandwidth. On the main page of your cPanel, scroll down to the section called Security, and click on the icon named Hotlink Protection. On the Hotlink Protection screen, make sure all your own sites are listed in the "URLs to allow access" box, so you are able to hotlink with your own images. In the next box, list all the extensions, or file types you want protected. For example, you might list .jpg,.jpeg,.gif,.png,.bmp, and so forth, all separated by commas. In the next box enter a URL you want to redirect to, for anyone who tries to hotlink to your files and/or images. This could be something like your homepage, or an error page. Next, if you want to enable someone to manually enter the URL of a protected file, check the allow direct requests box. Then click the Submit button. This will take you to the confirmation screen, which will show you which web sites you have allowed to Hotlink, and the protected extensions. To disable Hotlink Protection, simply click the Disable button. Click the HOME button in the upper left corner, to return to the main cPanel page. This ends the tutorial on Hotlink Protection. You now know how to add and disable the protection, and you can return here to add or remove file types to the protected list at any time. You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing due to security reasons.
19How do I change the port that Terminal Services runs on?
1. Select Start, Run and enter 'regedt32'. Locate the following key in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp 2. Find the "PortNumber" subkey. The default value will be 00000D3D, or 3389 in decimal. Modify the port number and save the new value. When you connect to your server through Remote Desktop, you will enter "yourserver.domain.com:2202", where 2202 is the port number you choose. Note: We recommend rebooting to apply this change. Otherwise, you will need to recreate the RDP listener via Terminal Services configuration
20How do I configure the Windows Firewall?
Microsoft has developed a great article centered around configuration of the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security and IPsec Policies. This step-by-step guide illustrates how to deploy Active Directory® Group Policy objects (GPOs) to configure Windows Firewall with Advanced Security in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008. Although you can configure a single server locally by using Group Policy Management tools directly on the server, that method is not consistent or efficient when you have many computers to configure. When you have multiple computers to manage, create and edit GPOs, and then apply those GPOs to the computers in your organization. Common scenarios, including firewall rule deployment, server and domain isolation, and IPsec tunnel mode configuration are discussed.
21How do I enable ICMP echos in Server 2008

22Terminal Server Has Exceeded Max Connections
This problem happens because Windows only allows two remote terminal services connections to be logged in as an Administrator, and you've either got two people already on that server as an Administrator, or more likely, you've got a disconnected session that is still logged in (simply closing the RDP session does not log you out, you need to log out from the Start Menu on the remote server). To force yourself to login as an admin (provided you have admin credentials to log on with) execute the following from your local computer: For users with XP SP3, Vista, or terminal services client =>6.1: Start > Run > mstsc /v:0.0.0.0 /f /admin Otherwise: Start > Run > mstsc /v:0.0.0.0 /f /console ...Replace the 0.0.0.0 with your IP address, type in your username/password at the prompt and you are good to go. For more information on the mstsc command click here. Free bonus: Need to Ctl + Alt + Del in a RDP window? Don't work? Try Ctl + Alt + End instead.
