Windows clients crashing nfs server?

2018-02-14 Thread Rupert Gallagher
This is a recurring problem that is proving hard to fix. When windows 10 pro clients run their security updates and the client restarts, they are unable to reconnect to the nfs server. There is nothing wrong with the network, however, and the nfs servers are up as usual. The only thing that

From my seat, he learned that his configuration of PF lacks SYN flooding protection. He also learned that he needs a managed switch: cisco SF and SG series are affordable and deliver ddos protection. Sent from ProtonMail Mobile On Mon, Feb 12, 2018 at 07:22, Bruno Flueckiger

Yes, it is open hardware. No, it is not COTS, unfortunately. Low cost is due to high volume, and SPARC is hard to find. On Fri, Jan 5, 2018 at 06:36, SJP Lists wrote: > SPARC architecture is open to others to develop their own CPU designs. The > Russians are not forced

The answer is: genuine FUD. The news is hitting the media with more emphasis than a North Corean nuclear test, the uncertainty is due to yet another hardware feature that was implemented by Intel to steal secrets across different OSs, and the doubt of whether OBSD will pass this new test. On

The Intel flop hits the US .mil as well, because they depend on COTS Xeons. I pity the Russians. I wonder if they pay through the nose for Oracle's power hungry hardware, or make it cheaper and power efficient of their own. On Thu, Jan 4, 2018 at 18:28, Jordan Geoghegan

Everybody is reading about it, including people like me that have formerly underestimated the problem... mea culpa The question is, can we have a kernel free of patches for spynet cpus? The Russians are moving to ARM-based cpus, anthough ARM is subject to UK-style Orwellian spynet law. The
