#1 Re: Off Topic » macOS Firewalls » 2021-07-05 15:28:22

I didn't know that the firewall wasn't enabled in the macOS, sounds like a bad idea to me. On the other hand, without any third party tools, I believe that the Windows Firewall will also allow outbound connections. But anyway, you can also check out NetBarrier X9, but I believe it's integrated into Mac Internet Security X9, it's a bit unclear if you can stil use the standalone version without the AV.

After little Google'ing I think it is not extension. There is built-in Chrome feature using multicast for "Google Cast". These link seem to provide information how to disable it. I don't use Chrome, so I didn't try it.

What will happen if you are not going to transition to SSL, is basicly browsers will warn you users before they enter your site that it doesn't have SSL.

The coronavirus pandemic has spread to many aspects of life.

But one of its early and unexpected impacts seems to be on cash — or, more specifically, cash transactions.

Though it does not reference cash specifically, Department of Health advice says the COVID-19 virus can spread through "touching objects that have cough or sneeze droplets from an infected person" on them.

So when managers of The Knox cafe, in suburban Canberra, met to discuss how to protect staff and improve hygiene, refusing coins and banknotes was one of their first decisions.

"We've stopped using keep cups and we've stopped cash transactions," front-of-house manager Madeleine Clarke said.

"Our boss wants us to minimise hand-to-hand interactions and, obviously, cash carries a lot of germs."
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-20/ … a/12065860

The NSW Government has also recently reminded businesses of the dangers of handling cash and, if it was required, suggested they use hand sanitisers.

There is a widespread belief that if you give a business "legal tender" — official Australian coins or banknotes — they must accept it as payment.

However, that is not what the law says. In fact, the Currency Act limits the buyer's rights to use physical money in certain situations.

For example, if you use silver coins (5c, 10c, 20c or 50c pieces) for a purchase worth more than $5, the seller can say no. Similarly, $2 coins only give you the right to buy a $20 good or service.

"So while coronavirus may be making us loathe to actually touch cash, it will be many years, if ever, before Australia's banknotes are killed off."

Surfing the net while logged into your google account is like saying "Please Track Everything I do online" -- you're generating 3rd party cookies everywhere you go.

If you dislike tracking cookies, then be sure to signout of google.

I’m still frustrated with Google searches.

For example: I search for

BrandX over-ear BT headphones and I get webpages for other brands and BrandX doesn’t appear anywhere in the page.

Is there any way to get more precise results?

Any advice much welcome.

iPhone owners, beware. It appears Facebook might be actively using your camera without your knowledge while you’re scrolling your feed.

The issue has come to light after a user going by the name Joshua Maddux took to Twitter to report the unusual behavior, which occurs in the Facebook app for iOS. In footage he shared, you can see his camera actively working in the background as he scrolls through his feed

For webdesign, I use Cygwin emulator on Win/7 where I can run AMP (Apache, MySql & PHP) that is native code which can be uploaded to a live server. Even Cygwin is better than any VM for learning. Yes, I can start a local Apache server on Win/7 -- even on my laptop.

I actually have my old laptop set up as a webserver on my LAN. It was many an experiment but I actually use it now. I Use LAMP. My whole deal is I'm trying to learn Linux and networking, everything else is just stuff for me too try when I'm bored or a way to test if things work.

Linux forum seems a little inactive, I'd like to change that.

So, I'll start off! I'm currently using Linux Mint as my daily driver. I'm working on getting virtual machines to work, very unsuccessfully so far, lol! While most games run fine on linux these days, I'd like to have a windows 10 VM I can simply turn on whenever I wish to play something that I can't on linux. I know that basically every game can run on linux these days, but I'm not that good yet. So, in the interest of getting my to use linux as much as possible, I want to avoid dualbooting windows 10 like the plague. If anyone is interested in doing this with me, I am using THIS GUIDE

I also want to play around with other linux distros in VM's because it just seems easier. I also have a lot of computers and computer power around my house, I'd like to learn more about technology in general so I can make use of it. I have 2 Ryzen 2700X's each paired with 32GB of ram and 3 Ryzen 1700X's with 16GB of ram each. Each computer is pair with either a 1070ti or vega 64. Down the road I'd like to play with remote management, AI, building a NAS, having a local webserver so I can get back into webdesign and maybe throw in a few game servers because, why not?

Ask your brother if you can use his pc.
Login as normal, make sure you can connect to any server channels.
If you got banned or ip banned it would refuse to take you're login credentials.
Which os are you currently running ?

Which network setting provides the best protection of my home network. Setting it to private or public. I have been using private thinking it offered the best security than I watched a YouTube video that now has me completely confused. The video implied setting it to public makes it more secure.
Any comments will be appreciated

#20 Off Topic » How to connect two routers on the same network » 2021-03-02 12:36:15

Replies: 1

Start with your existing network:
ISP==modem==router#1 (may or may not have wifi)
You wish to add a second router (perhaps with wifi) like
ISP==modem==router#1 ----- router#2
There are two ways to use router#2
isolate all devices on #2 from those on #1 (ie no file sharing)
make all devices visible to each other & support file sharing

To implement #1;
first, find the router#1 LAN address
use IPCONFIG and the gateway address shown is the router's address
we usually see something like 192.168.X.1

Then, set the router#2 Lan address to X+1, like
connect any LAN port on #1 to the WAN slot on #2 and you're done.

All devices on router#2 will be able to access the Internet, but nothing on the internet will have access to router#2 and that means if you are hosting some service of game on your system, it will need to be connected to router#1

To implement #2:
You need to disable DHCP in router#2 to allow all addresses to be
controlled by router#1

connect a pc to any router lan slot
login the router using your browser and the router's default address
use the default user/password
find the router settings
disable DHCP
save & logout

Now disconnect the PC and connect router#1 lan slot to any
router#2 lan slot, leaving router#2 WAN slot empty

any device on router#1 will be able to ping the devices on router#2 and conversely.

WiFi Considerations
One tool that is really helpful with WiFi is inSSIDer. This helps
finding a channel with the least conflicts in your location.

Router#1 (if it has wifi) should be solved first

When you add router#2, you can make the SSID similar to that of #1,
but add a suffix '2' so you can tell them apart.

Make sure that when both routers have WiFi, that they are NOT using
the same channels! Otherwise, you're interfering with yourself.

#22 Re: Off Topic » It's finally over.....Norton 360 Premium is only available » 2021-03-02 05:40:50

Bitdefender and Kaspersky consistently rate high as well. However, Kaspersky is often priced high compared to their competition, and depending on your viewpoint, could be a cause for concern based on their location.


https://www.av-comparatives.org/tests/r … -may-2020/

Depending on the price when my current Norton subscription is up (194 days left), those are likely the three I will decide between. If renewing Norton directly through them is too expensive, I'll move on since I can't buy a license from other retailers anymore.

My Acer Aspire 4810T has been running slowly, especially the browser (Chrome).
The laptop has 3GB RAM, 250GB HD (just over 25% is free) and runs 32-bit Windows Vista Home Premium SP2.

I use AVG 2015 and it hasn't detected anything lately.

I often stream radio (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/player/bbc_radio_two) whilst using the laptop and usually whenever I try to load a new browser page it stutters, but that can also happen if I open, say, Excel. Most web pages seem to take far too long to load and jump about up and down the screen as the web page graphics latently load. Sometimes a page will seem to have loaded but still shows in the tab as loading, sometimes this site is a good example - when the bar at the bottom of the browser says it is waiting for something (perhaps in-turn waiting for some script to run).

I've had problems with Adobe reader before (trying and failing to upgrade itself) but not lately.

I would be most grateful for any pointers for a resolution/improvement please. I would not normally consider myself as dim but computers often defeat me: I try and review things methodically but do usually find software/settings bewilderingly complicated!

Right now in my Windows start bar (is that the same as toolbar?) the network icon (two display screens) is showing with the front screen blank and a red cross in the bottom right hand corner - yet a connection IS established and I'm working on the internet as usual!

Thanking you in anticipation of any kind pointers at all please, Mac
