So Jane says no thanks to phoenix.
Slightly more evil all the time.
Just imagine all those games get that free advertising. "Banned in Australia" could become the new measure of how cool a game is.
Its business. It is the pathological version of business but that is who is in charge at all these corps. I've said it before on here: they are not going to operate at a loss.
Seriously, it seems they know how to entice the befuddled masses in to clicking on their garbage.
Just keep re reading what I posted until you understand what I said. Reading comprehension, how does it work?
I'm pretty sure the end user can filter anything they want. We still maintain a filter on the public parks around here. After all you don't want little johnny to have to ask mommy what the strange man with doing with his thing out on a park bench.
I really want to know so I can get people flagged for making false statements to that effect. We don't have a firewall at all on our internet customers. Its wide open and has been for years. We found throttling ports was self defeating in that the torrent hoarders used encryption and other means to hide their activity anyway. The filter we had was actually causing an additional 30ms of latency and I have missed it at all.
Good luck putting it in bridge mode on the crap AT&T gives out. The last Motorola cheapo I looked at didn't have that capability, just DMZ.
No I would have spotted bad hardware or a badly configured cpe device with our monitoring tools. Its really sucks when you deal with paltry little t1 lines and you end up working on a system that bears little resemblance to the equipment you normally work on. Truth be told a look at the CTMS log files would have showed a ip deadlock.
Yep. You see there is this protocol known as snmp and you can use it to monitor the rf levels and the status of the ethernet and shucks all kinds of things. You should look it up.
I get one or two people a year, usually security camera guys who call us up and claim we are blocking ports. Jokes on them though. We haven't had a firewall at all on the public network in six years. I ripped out the shitty redhat filter they used to run and replaced it with nothing. These days my favorites are torrent hoarders who call and threaten to call the FCC for violating net neutrality. They all claim to be pros to.
Simple config fix could have prevented that. Most CMTS have a dhcp verify feature that prevent that kind of thing. Usually its turned on to prevent some guy with a dynamic account from setting up his ip address as a static. Also the guy may have said 'test' but what he meant was let me go look at the logs. We are a small ISP so when I start working a problem I don't log into the management system, I SSH into the equipment and pull live data. I don't remember a time I've ever been wrong when I said its not the modem. Also I love it when I ask them to power cycle the modem and they say "okay Its unplugged" and I say "Then why is it still online".
We had some guy who set up cacti to monitor his connection and he claimed he went down every evening around 6:00pm. We looked at our monitoring and sure enough every day his modem went off line around 6:00pm. The cable modem right next door to it never went offline. Sure enough on the day we showed up around 6 to look at what the possible problem could be we noticed the cleaning lady had unplugged the whole rack and had plugged in her vacuum cleaner. Then suddenly the 'pro' noticed that his router had a up time of less than twenty four hours. He didn't have any monitoring on that, just traffic. So I would say around 80% of the time when a 'pro' calls us with a problem, its not our problem.
The lawyers union sticks together.
