We have a dragonwave horizon compact complaining of:


Radio drain current out of limits: - Redundancy OFF:
Radio Fault: - Replace Radio

What the heck is Radio drain current out of limits?

Thanks

Re: [WISPA] Service contracts

2010-11-11 Thread Don Grossman
How do you work that with outside collection agencies when they skip?  Our 
collection agency wants something stating the customer in fact agreed to the 
terms.

 All the other service providers such as DSL and cable are looking to
 lock people into 2 year contracts as well. add to that cellular, but I
 don't really consider that a competitor, customers understand the
 similarities that there is a common need to get into a term agreement to
 have service. The advantage is that customers aren't hopping around
 playing musical chairs with service providers for a buck savings when
 the service providers spend a lot of money on their install. The
 customers can safely ignore all the misleading flyers they get from the
 cable company or phone company talking about introductory prices or
 prices without the fees added, at least till their contract period is
 winding down.
 
 We keep our contract 1 page. I'm sure a lawyer would laugh at it, but
 the idea is that neither party wants it to end up in lawyer's hands.
 Referencing the TOS on your website would be a good thing in saving
 paper.
 
 We do 2 year contracts for one price and 1 year for a slightly higher
 setup price. We track who we give them to, who gave it to them and when.
 We need that to be able to follow up as sometimes customers don't follow
 through or expect the service but lose the paperwork. We can email the
 customer a pdf, the installers have them printed out in the van for
 customers. We track when we receive them back too; if we receive a
 contract back and there is a big delay in the install, that is a problem
 we have to investigate and address. If the customer needs a contract for
 reference we give them an extra blank one, or offer to mail them a
 photocopy of the one they signed.

[WISPA] Re-evaluating our anti-spam solution

2009-07-13 Thread Don Grossman
It seems time to take a look at our anti-spam solution.  Currently we  
are looking to replace out Barracuda due to ongoing issues with the  
box that after several attempts to work with Barracuda can not be  
resolved.  Barracuda is helpful but like to point at other things like  
DNS and unrelated stuff.  In the end they log into the box after  
wasting time so something to kick the box and we are good for an  
undetermined amount of time.

The Barracuda gives us a few features that we like such as an in house  
box that we are not paying per email address or domain.  Also the per  
user configurability is great for letting users independently control  
their white and blacklists.

In a nutshell what products should we look at that offer us similar  
features as the Barracuda box.

Thanks

Don

poking stick in fire

Hey, now that the government is pumping $7.2B into a critical US  
infrastructure, wouldn't it make sense for some reasonable network  
management to take place to protect that investment?  This way low  
and middle income families will have access to equal and unbiased  
information without risk.

Doesn't this sound nice?

 FYI

 From SANS NewsBites Vol.11 Num.13


 --UK Plans to Consolidate Communication Data Retention
 (February 13  16, 2009)
 Rather than requiring every service provider in the UK to keep its  
 own
 user communication information to comply with European data retention
 rules, the UK government plans to use BT and other high tier  
 providers
 to retain the data.  The move comes as a result of the government's
 decision not to bear the burden of paying for each individual  
 provider's
 compliant data retention system.  UK draft laws require retention  
 of IP
 address and session data for 12 months.  The data retention scheme is
 expected to cost taxpayers about GBP 46 million (US $65.7 million).

 Another newsbite

 --Canadian Judge Rules Internet Users Have No Reasonable Expectation
 of Privacy
 (February 13, 2009)
 A judge in Canada has ruled that Internet users have no reasonable
 expectation of privacy regarding records kept by their Internet  
 service
 providers (ISPs).  The ruling was made in the course of a child
 pornography case in which law enforcement officers asked an ISP to
 provide subscriber information for an IP address that was allegedly  
 used
 to access the content.  Bell Canada provided the information  
 without a
 warrant.  Most Canadian ISPs require warrants before they will  
 provide
 subscriber names, except in the case of child pornography.  Privacy
 advocates are concerned the ruling could set a precedent that would  
 put
 individuals' entire surfing history at the disposal of law  
 enforcement
 authorities without the need for warrants.  They maintain the judge
 operated under the faulty assumption that the information obtained  
 from
 the ISP is similar to what could be found in a telephone directory.
 http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=1283120
 http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Police+have+access+your+online+history/1286193/story.html

 [Editor's Note (Northcutt): The ever dwindling right to privacy. Keep
 in mind that ISPs want to collect information on user's surfing etc.,
 so they can sell that data to marketing firms. Be sure to check out  
 the
 related FTC story elsewhere in this issue.
 (Hoelzer): This topic will become more and more interesting legally
 since in many jurisdictions governments are requiring that certain
 records be kept; while the intent is good the potential for abuse  
 toward
 individuals unfriendly to a particular political point of view could
 result in the end.  For example, consider the story out of the UK  
 this
 week moving to consolidate this type of data into top tier  
 providers for
 easier access and monitoring by government.]

Re: [WISPA] Friday Fun. Worlds most expensive gate chain

Funny.

We used to have a long chain with lots of pad locks. One day I  
went to the tower gate and found some ID 10 T had shortened the  
chain by quite a bit to tighten it up.


Guess he didn't understand the theory of needing all the locks in  
the loop and not a bunch wagging off the tail like mine was.


Not so funny, George
