DNS resolving in Openfiler
Thursday, August 04th, 2011 | Author: Ozzik

Just a small issue I had today.
Since I run rsync scripts at night and get email about their execution, I noticed that email came with:

ssh: Could not resolve hostname SERVERNAME: Name or service not known
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(635) [receiver=3.0.3]

How weird would that be if I wasn’t trying out the new Google+, being a tech guy and all.
And while I hate the concept of the social networking, I actually do like the new thing.

Why? Because it gives you the option to choose exactly how social you want to be. I won’t be covering the whole thing as many have done so already, but the option to create and manage the circles, choose what stream to read, follow whoever you want and all the sharing/privacy settings are really doing it for me. Plus, the beautiful interface is really nailing it.

Remotely enable RDP on WinXP
Friday, April 09th, 2010 | Author: Ozzik

Although most versions of Windows operating system such as Windows 2000, 2003, 2008, XP and Vista do come packaged with Remote Desktop, however it’s disabled by default. Turning on and enabling the Remote Desktop via local console is easy, where Microsoft provides similar GUI (graphical user interface) in all editions of Windows.

However, if an off-site server needs to be access via Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) client immediately, yet the Remote Desktop is not enabled on the server, then it will be a headache. Luckily it’s possible to remotely enable the Remote Desktop service on a remote PC or server by remotely editing its registry.

To remotely enable Remote Desktop on another computer, follow these steps:

1. Login to the workstation with administrator credentials.
2. Run Registry Editor (regedit).
3. Click on File menu.
4. Select the Connect Network Registry in the pull down menu.
5. A “Select Computer” dialog search box is opened. Type the host name of the remote computer in the text box, or browse Active Directory to locate the remote server, or click on “Advanced” button to search for the remote computer.
6. Click OK after the remote computer is selected. A node for the remote computer network registry will be displayed in the Registry Editor with HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) and HKEY_USERS (HKU) hives.
7. Navigate to the following registry key for the remote computer:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server
8. In the right pane, locate a REG_DWORD value named fDenyTSConnection. Double-click on fDenyTSConnection and change the value data from 1 (Remote Desktop disabled) to 0 (Remote Desktop enabled).

That’s it.
