No much you can do for NDR backscatter, short of changing their address. I 
would suggest creating an SPF record for your

Re: [WISPA] PCI Compliance

2010-04-02 Thread Frank Muto

All the better to have a completely hosted service with a trusted merchant. We 
have no CCRD information or even a card 
reader. We take no CCRD payments over the phone, by email, postal mail or store 
CCRD information for recurring invoices. All 
of our invoices are sent via email with an online payment URL to make CCRD 
payments or direct payments from their bank 
account or mailed in checks. Nonetheless, PCI worries are not on our watch.

Subject: Re: [WISPA] PCI Compliance


 PCI compliance only applies to section of the network where YOU process and
 possibly store credit card information. If you have no over the net
 processing and don't store credit cards then it's easy. You fill out the
 form for terminal processing and just need to make sure the terminal itself
 is in a secured supervised location, acknowledge that credit cards are not
 saved or stored. If you save and store credit cards you need to certify that
 you are not store the whole magnetic strip info or security codes for the
 cards.
 If things are done on computer you have a more complex questioner to fill
 out. Are credit card info stored, if they are stored electronically the
 server needs to be protected by some form of firewall and only people with a
 need to know should be able to access the credit card details, part of the
 card number should be blanked out on display, no security codes are allowed
 to be stored. I assume your workstations and servers are on a separate
 segment on your network and should be protected with a firewall against any
 outside access (in the ISP case that also includes access from your
 customers and not only from the internet itself). If you have a wireless
 access point on that network segment it needs to be secured and only allow
 specific access from allowed devices and some form of encryption on any
 communication that reads/write credit card details. Database (or wherever
 your credit cards are stored) needs to be secured.
 If processing credit cards over the net you should have a end to end secure
 connection from your customers computer to the credit card gateway
 processor. So basically web page customer key in info needs to be secured by
 either ssl or some other method that sends the data in encrypted secured
 format. From your server to the processor the data also need to be secured
 (no processor I am aware of even accepts a unsecure submission of credit
 card details so this shouldn't be a problem on that basis).

 You also need to make sure that physical access to terminal and servers that
 process and store credit cards is secured.

 Also in the questioner it's asked if you have policies in place how to
 handle and treat credit cards, whom have access to them and what to do if
 any kind of breach would happen.

 The PCI compliance is pretty open and doesn't have for most part specific
 requirements when it comes to firewalls, how or what. If you store data and
 process data on a computer that computer needs to be protected both
 physically and virtually. Virtually can be a software firewall on the
 machine itself or it can be a hardware based firewall in front of the
 machine.

 Basically PCI compliance is all about common sense, ensure your servers are
 safe from any type of intrusion or theft, not to write down credit cards on
 scrap paper that is thrown in the trash, only allow access to credit card
 info to the people that have to have access to it.

 There are different levels and types of PCI compliance depends on how you
 process credit cards. Worst case scenario is if you have a regular credit
 card terminal or process credit cards across the network on a e-commerce
 type software (be it home written or professionally developed) and even
 worse if you store credit card details.
 Once you start filling out the questioner things will more than likely
 become a bit more clearer for you.
 If you store and process credit cards on computer than you need to as well
 have a company that is doing a PCI scan of your server to ensure hacker
 proof status. It will look for port vulnerabilities and web application
 security issues.

 https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/saq/index.shtml

 For most people a self assessment is enough (except for server scanning
 where an approved company needs to be used). If your company process a LOT
 of credit cards per year no external auditor needs to be hired (not even my
 company reaches the level where an external auditor is required but we have
 to file twice annually because of our volume while most WISPs I would dare
 to say would only be a level 4 which is the lowest level and would only need
 to file once a year).

Re: [WISPA] OT - Email Delivery Problems Killing ME - SOS lol

2010-02-12 Thread Frank Muto
IMO, DKIM is not worth the time or is it as widely used as SPF/Sender ID. SPF 
configuration can/may get you blocked, but not 
necessarily increase spam folder receipts. Don't count on the receiving server 
to have their SPF setup properly. Depending on 
how you create the SPF records, can defer the message for additional filtering.

Keep the SPF as short as possible, helping the large and very busy mail 
providers from spending to much time pinging DNS. Is 
your DNS service in good working order? Do all your end users always use your 
SMTP, or can they use other mail servers to 
send mail in behalf of the domain, e.g, Blackberry BIS?

First thing I would do is ask the recipient admin for a reason why it
was labeled as spam.  Fix that problem and move on with the next.

I'd be willing to bet with just a few site removals a lot of services
get restores - few big ones out there I can't remember what they're
called.

Have you watched the outgoing SMTP to make sure something isn't hijacked?

Send me a message with a new domain, IP, etc and see if it gets marked as spam.

 Any ISP running their own DNS and mail server needs to be subscribed to
 dnsstuff.com. Many many great DNS tools not only to test your DNS server
 entries on your own server but also to check how servers see lookups against
 your machine, to do spam db look ups and many other neat tools. 
 
 Another feature they offer is RBL alerts if your mailserver gets RBL listed
 (gives you fast information so you can take care of a issue quickly before
 it goes way out of control). 
 
 Plus you have their DNS alert feature so that it will automatically detect
 any issues without you having to run tests each time something is changed or
 in some cases with things break without you knowing it.. 
 
 If you run your own DNS server and mail server then this will be your best
 spent $220 a year. 
 
 I used their site for many years way back to when it was free service for
 the lookup tools. I tried to do without when they went pay but quickly
 signed up because it was invaluable to me.

 And our customers really like the change.  Mostly for the full featured

 Not to mention, 90% of that bandwidth usage never makes it to the gateway

 Hi All,

 What are you guys doing for email these days?  I LOVE my setup for it's
 reliability, ease of use etc.

 Hacked customer accounts and virus's are killing me though.  We don't 
 catch
 things until 100,000s of messages go out and we get black listed.  This 
 has
 now happened 3 or 4 times in the last couple of years.

 My server admins aren't coming up with a solution to this other than to
 limit cc's to 25 per message.  We did that once before and my phone rang 
 off

 the hook because people can't send jokes to their friends.

 The other thing that makes it hard is that the log files that I get (up to
 40 megs per day!) don't list the authenticated sender, only the reply
 address.  So I see tens of thousands of messages from a user that's not 
 even

 mine (faked info).  sigh

 We use Courier MTA.

 My thought is to set the server to allow a max of 1000 messages per day 
 per
 user.  And to somehow make the log file ONLY send me the number of 
 messages
 received per a user, and the number sent, user name and ip addy of all 
 those

 sending.  Twice now I've asked about that idea and gotten no response from
 the server admins.

 Suggestions?

 laters,
 marlon

[WISPA] FCC Adelstein to leave for RUS

Subject: FCC's Jonathan Adelstein asked to lead rural utility push

FCC's Jonathan Adelstein asked to lead rural utility push
By The Associated Press and Journal staff

President Barack Obama wants FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein to be the new 
head of the Rural Utilities Service.
Adelstein is the son of Sen. Stan Adelstein, R-Rapid City.

The Rural Utilities Service is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and 
was founded during the Great Depression to 
bring electricity to rural residents. It has just received nearly $4 billion in 
stimulus money to give rural America better 
access to high-speed Internet and clean water.
In a news release, Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., praised Adelstein's 
experience.

Jonathan's experience working on issues important to development in rural 
America will serve him well as the administrator 
for the USDA's Rural Utilities Service, Herseth Sandlin said in the release. 
His focus on improving rural 
telecommunications and broadband as a commissioner on the Federal Communications
Commission will be particularly critical as we seek to enhance services 
available in rural communities in South Dakota and 
across the country.

The president did not say who would replace Adelstein, a Democrat, at the FCC. 
The commission normally has five members but 
currently has three. Without Adelstein, it would not have a quorum, so his move 
to the Rural Utility Service is likely to be 
on hold until he is replaced.
Adelstein has served on the FCC for six years.

 Hi All,
 
 I just got a notice that Quickbooks is going to REQUIRE an upgrade in order 
 to continue to keep sending out bills via email.  And we have all of 1 month 
 or so to get it done  I HATE Intuit and would like to replace them.
 
 Here's the work flow in our office.
 
 New customer calls in.
 Fill out signup sheet with all needed customer data.
 Assign static ip to customer.
 Enter customer billing info into Quickbooks.
 Enter all customer data into Access.
 Enter customer username and pass into RADIUS.
 Enter customer email account(s) data into email server.
 Enter customer data into Postini (if they purchase the filtering).
 Type customer signup sheet info into word doc and store in customer folder.
 Generate installation work order.
 Fill out check list showing what steps have been completed.
 
 This has worked nicely in the past and only takes about 30 minutes to 
 accomplish.  But now we're growing too fast and have gotten too big to 
 maintain this.  Between tech support calls etc. the office manager is having 
 to bring in extra help.  It's only a day per week and it's good for there to 
 be two people there at least part of the time.  No one should work alone all 
 of the time.  Plus, if she wants to take some time off she will have someone 
 trained in the basics so we'll likely need to keep some extra help around no 
 matter what.  This mechanism also gives us a lot of double checks, redundant 
 data points etc.  With Access and Quickbooks we can run a very nice mix of 
 reports etc.
 
 We do NOT have a customer trouble ticket mechanism other than the file on 
 them.  We don't track customers on a per call basis.  That's not too bad 
 because we're still small enough that we can normally remember problem 
 customers.
 
 This would probably be a good time to change everything though.
 
 In my perfect world, I'd have a billing system (that handles all of the 
 taxes for different communities etc.), trouble ticketing, auto server 
 configuration AND deconfig.  I'd want good reporting capabilities.
 
 I've looked at some of the commercial systems out there, but at $1 or more 
 per month per sub for a full blown system I'd rather keep putting that money 
 into the local labor pool.
 
 Freeside looks pretty good but I don't do programming or server admin work 
 in-house.  I don't mind hiring someone to set it all up etc. and to take 
 care of the server.  But it has to be an affordable solution too.
 
 What are people using?  Do you like it?
 
 If you had it to do all over again, what would you do?
 
 Vendors please feel free to hit me up.

That may work for a smaller amount of customers, but when dealing with a 
significant amount of customers that can not be 
cost/time efficient thing to do.

 Marlon,

 I got a notice like that from Quickbooks maybe 6 months ago. I irked me
 because I didn't want them to be able to force me to upgrade when my
 2004 edition was doing just fine.

 I started using the following workaround.

 1. Rather than emailing invoices directly from QB via their email
 gateway, I now save each completed invoice as a PDF in the subdirectory
 of the client that I'm invoicing.

 2. From my email program, I then originate an email to the client and
 attach the PDF invoice.

 This process may take a few more seconds than the older, mail-from-QB
 process but it has worked out well otherwise and I feel that I am less
 of a victim of Intuit's marketing machine.

 Also, when I need to follow up with the client regarding payment status
 (which happens all too often these days) I can just go back to the
 original email that I sent them and forward it to the client along with
 a polite inquiry as to the payment status.

IMAIL 10 FAQ
http://tinyurl.com/8ytj4b

A) First make sure that your server meets the system requirements for the new 
version of IMail. For instance, it would be a 
good idea to make sure IIS is up and running with at least the default site. 
Also, make sure that IIS is configured to use 
.Net 2.0.

B) Get a backup of the IMail registry keys as outlined in the following article:
Backup/Restore the IMail Registry

C) Install the latest version of IMail.

D) If you use AV Premium, be sure to install the latest version(5.2).

Note: Since we now use IIS, your web pages may be blocked if you used the old 
port 8383. You can change the IIS web port 
within IIS if you want to use port 8383 instead of port 80.

Re: [WISPA] Google's email services for ISPs

2009-01-06 Thread Frank Muto
As a ENET distributor, I'll agree with Mark. After testing various hosted 
services for 18 months, I decided on ENET back in 
2006. For a hosted service I feel it is the best all around email service you 
can offer your customers. We use ENET mostly 
for backup continuity and for clients looking for a less expensive alternative 
to in-house Exchange, or hosted Exchange. We 
have the full compliment to offer, IMAP, POP3, Webmail and a customizable 
portal.

 For those who may be using Google's branded services for ISPs can
 someone tell me where to go to find more information and how is it
 working for you.  Currently we are running our email services on an out
 of production email server that is no longer supported and behind a
 Barracuda SF for spam protection.  It is causing more problems than it's
 worth.  If it were up to me I'd have everyone switch to gmail or
 something like that but of course people don't like to change their

Likewise. When we shut down our dial-up in 2002, we kept the mail service going 
with the domain our users had for almost 5 
years, charging $60 annually, including Postini. We also do a good amount of 
backup email services all completely outsourced 
from multiple providers.

 OK guys. I've never had this happen before so I'm not usre what to do.
 I've got a long time customer that has fallen for the ATT DSL
 giveaway package and is switching. He asked if he could pay a small
 monthly rate to keep his email addresses for a few months until he
 gets the word out. My first reaction is to tell him to take a flying
 leap. After some thought, I want to be reasonable. I've thought about
 telling him he can do so with a low end plan. We dont sell email
 accounts. How do you handle this?

2008-07-14 Thread Frank Muto

From: [EMAIL PROTECTED]


 Forrest, let me get back to the very old conversation about why WISPA should
 organized at least 1500 filings to the FCC by every WISP they could get to
 act, to say This cannot be done.

 Before they even bothered to read half of them, the FCC would have been in
 the process of asking INDUSTRY how to do this, but no, WISPA folks had to
 play pussyfoot and now we're stuck with an enormous boondoggle, FOR NO
 BENEFIT TO ANYONE.   In spite of people's best efforts at character
 asassination, I have never once objected to being required to help law
 enforcement do what it needs to do, so could we dispense with the silly
 nonsense already?


Unless a party files a special petition pursuant to CALEA § 107(b), the 
Commission does not get formally involved with the 
compliance standards development process. CALEA also does not provide for 
Commission review of manufacturer-developed 
solutions. Entities subject to CALEA are responsible for reviewing the 
Commission's regulations and analyzing how this 
regulation applies per their specific network architecture.

Re: [WISPA] Topic change - Trade Association Was:Report: FCCtoPunishComcast Over Web Blocking

2008-07-13 Thread Frank Muto
Since when is the discussion about CALEA been about whether it is good? Are you 
even in the same thread? The key take away 
from WISPA's involvement was a useable standard that LEA can work with, as each 
WISP can then provide the LEA with the 
information as is available within their network, as provided for within the 
statue of CALEA.

The wire-line side, e.g., telcos, dealt with CALEA on a different level because 
of the amount of information readily 
available through standards already in existence and others made available 
since 1994 and updated again in August of 1999 for 
cellular and personal communications services. Unfortunately the telcos, i.e., 
telecommunications carriers were provided with 
greater assistance in their efforts to become compliant, where as the WISP's 
and VOIP providers were not afforded the same.

Compliance with CALEA is available in 3 ways, 1. A service provider may develop 
its own compliance solution for its unique 
network, e.g, a WISP. 2. may purchase a compliance solution from vendors, or 3. 
purchase a compliance solution from a trusted 
third party, (TTP).

What WISPA did was developed a compliance standard that LEA can work with, as 
an industry it is responsible for setting CALEA 
standards, pursuant to the statues of CALEA.

Not to rehash the whole CALEA ordeal, which certainly was the case, this is 
just one example of how WISPA got involved and 
took on the initiative to do something about it, with or without your help. 
IMO, CALEA was the most important issue to deal 
with at the time and it got done.

 Forrest, the notion that some networks can't be sniffed was certainly given
 some time back when and somewhat addressed - although more along the lines
 of why on earth would you NOT have a single point of failure network?, as
 if that's a good thing.   I'd like to note that according to recent
 commentary by WISPA leadership, you WILL either fully comply... Or else.
 That was only  a temporary stop-gap, and you were expected to make your
 system fully compliant over time.

 BTW, where's the This network topology cannot be made compliant option on
 the filing you're required to do?   Oh, wait, no such LEGAL provision exists
 for reporting purposes.

 Again, you have not made the case that CALEA is good in any way.

 about CALEA being good for WISPA:
   I can find NO benefit to it of ANY

 is
 a mandate on how a network must function, a limitation to equipment,
 software, topology, and redundancy, and an absurd notion in the first
 place.
 It is a direct requirement to dumb-down and overbuild bandwidth, with NO
 return of ANY kind, financial or otherwise.
 From my perspective, almost everyone in the WISP industry got
 broadsided by the whole CALEA thing...   But by the time everyone was
 aware of the requirements, it was too late to do anything meaningful as
 far as the rules themselves.

 What WISPA did was diffuse a potentially very bad and very expensive
 situation for WISP's.   In short, the standards which WISPA developed
 and got approved basically says that you have to be able to packet sniff
 the data and provide it to the LEA.  One actual statement in the
 APPROVED standard says:

 In unusual cases it may be impossible to perform one or more of these
 functions. The WISP is expected to make a
 best effort attempt to satisfy these requirements.

 It doesn't say you have to redesign your network.  It doesn't say you
 have to dumb down a network.  It doesn't say you have to overbuild
 bandwidth.   Go ahead read the standard.. and realize that the ability
 to comply with this very easy to comply with standard is your safe
 harbor all thanks to the hard work provided by WISPA.   You can
 choose how much you want to do to prepare.   True, you may have to go
 put a packet sniffer at an AP site in response to a intercept request,
 but I suspect that would have been the case before CALEA as well.

[WISPA] Topic change - Trade Association Was: Report: FCC to Punish Comcast Over Web Blocking

2008-07-12 Thread Frank Muto
Tom,
I'll answer your question and I need to change up the topic. In part I agree 
and I am not set against working this out, but 
Martin is setting up some bad and continuing precedence on how the FCC is 
working within their legal purview. He is already 
on the hot seat with Congress on some of his actions.

Topic Change:

I can guarantee you, I will be all over any actions that effect my current 
business, as I was unfortunately too late to make 
any difference saving our wireline business. Even when I co-founded the WBIA 
back in Oct 2004, I knew it was too late, but I 
have learned a great deal from it.

My take away was how much the deck is stacked against when your peers don't 
give a hoot and unite under a common cause. But 
even when we showed the willingness to do something, we were able assembly a 
consult of people to help us guide our efforts. 
Peter R., Jim Garrett and a few others can attest to what my co-founder Cynthia 
de Lorenzi and myself were able to 
accomplish.

Even though the RBOC's had tacit agreements underlying their competitive 
opportunities. XO had their say about this, 
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_2005_Oct_21/ai_n15728657

They are using even more group power between them against the CableCo's with a 
new service called, http://movearoo.com/. 
Essentially this is a new wrapper around a company called www.WhiteFence.com, 
and is powered by WhiteFence.

That said, the Wi-Fi industry IMO is heading down the same path unless the 
alleged thousands of Wireless providers, big and 
small all get together under a common effort. This goes without saying that the 
vendor's themselves get with it as well.

I'll assume there is enough purchasing power to make a difference, that could 
effect how companies view their relationships 
with the wireless industry. Prior to my ISP life, I came from the Independent 
automotive service industry, dealing in 
replacement parts and service spanning some 30 years. I can honestly tell you 
if were not for the trade associations in every 
state, you may not be able to purchase replacement parts or take your auto to a 
neighborhood service center.

We fought for many years in keeping open trade in automotive service industry. 
Even when your car was going electronic and 
computerized, the automakers tried keeping us out of the game. But, our 
purchasing power with the tool companies and 
replacement parts industries, provided us with a significant amount of leverage 
in keeping the big automakers from locking us 
out within their own monopoly.

Trade associations can make a world of difference, but only when everyone joins 
in. And there is NO excuse, NONE, ZIPPO, NADA 
for even a one-man shop or mom  pop shops from joining WISPA. We had thousands 
of independent auto centers from one-man 
operations and up joining in on supporting our efforts to keep their 
livelihoods as safe as possible.

I will got out here and say it. There is NO excuse not to support WISPA, NONE! 
So for all of you on this general list not 
supporting WISPA, you are losing out on an opportunity to make your livelihood 
last and support your families for years to 
come. $25 a month is a small price to pay for some representation in a industry 
that is supporting yourself and families. I 
am sure you can find that much on wasted expenses every month.

It is also time for WISPA to come to grips with what they have accomplished 
over the past year and stop walking over eggs 
shells, thinking that you may hurt someone's feelings. STOP working for FREE! 
It is my opinion, that even though WISPA is a 
trade association, albeit a 503(c)6, it is still a business. A business that 
needs capital to operate for the benefit of the 
members. And a business that should be working for those members and be paid 
for their efforts. A business that continues to 
operate on a volunteer basis will most likely have a hard time taking it to the 
next level.

I feel that the current WISPA membership and those to come, deserve a governing 
board that can eventually work fulltime in 
building this association like they are their own business. I see no issues 
with bringing on an Executive director with an 
extensive network or company, to kick start the momentum needed to drive WISPA 
to the next level, thus having the BOD be 
responsible for that management. This would allow even the current BOD to 
participate at a level within their own time 
capacities.

In closing, as a vendor member, I take it very personally when in supporting 
WISPA I offer a fully-paid 1-year membership to 
WISPA and the recipient of that could care less. At the last ISPCON show in 
Chicago, I was glad to see the turn out at the 
WISPA exchange and was going to add a few more memberships, but I sank back 
into my seat after seeing the reception of the 
first free membership be that of so what. Let alone a thanks for it.

You don't get it. CALEA was a good thing for WISPA and its members. You need to 
understand that you pick the battles you feel 
you can win. WISPA has gained a good amount of respect from the FCC, but this 
is only one of many battle fronts WISP's are up 
against.

The FIGHT for US battle cry you comment on takes money, time and a good amount 
off leg work to make things work. You are 
dealing with a bureau that has many different levels of staffing, it can take 
weeks to know who to talk to, when and if they 
will talk to you, will it be ex-parte or not, etc, etc, etc.

Understand that the RBOCs and other companies are clamoring for the eyes and 
ears of those a the FCC, as WISPs need to get 
to.The fight is not only on the federal level, but also at the state and local 
levels as well.

 Yes, there is.   Until the current leadership gets their head out of the
 sand and starts fighting FOR US, instead of playing the FCC's patsy, I will
 not give them another dollar.

 When the boys came back from DC and posting to the lists that CALEA and
 the reporting mandates were good things, I could no longer in good
 conscience give them another dollar to use to use AGAINST US.   Whatever
 they did or said in DC on that topic, IN NO WAY REPRESENTED ME OR THE
 INTERESTS OF MY BUSINESS OR MY FUTURE.

 When I saw certain WISPA leadership glom onto the idea of a CALEA mandate
 being an opportunity to extract more money and blackmail more memberships, I
 was immediately convinced that they were in it FOR THEM, and not us.I
 even saw posting by someone who said that CALEA would be good for WISPA.
 Not good for the members = good for WISPA?

 Hell NO!  I will not play that game.

 We got local, state and federal governemnt playing that game, why would I
 voluntarily add WISPA to it?

 percent said they would upgrade if it was

Re: [WISPA] alternative to Barracuda

2008-06-30 Thread Frank Muto
That still puts pressure on the system resources. As a wireless provider you 
have enough on your plate to deal with. Options 
include, outsourcing email with integrated spam/virus (AS/AV) with 
IMAP/POP3/Webmail options, or outsource the AS/AV and take 
the load off of your systems.

Your current mail system is there for backup should you ever need it, if you 
outsource email. We have some clients that split 
between the two by e.g., keeping their appliance, in this case Barracuda and 
outsourcing additional AS/AV and email. 
Barracuda needs to upgrade their 300/400 units with Gigabit Ethernet, IMO. 
Instead of selling higher priced models or 
additional units to cover the amount of load even for the under 500 user 
systems.

 Or...build your own solution!

 You can easily have it forward to other boxes, and it's an excellent

 This is an age old argumentkeep it inhouse or outsource ?

 Outsource works very well as long as you have the right kind of (good match)
 outsource partner, and in-house works well is you are looking for full
 control and have extra available manpower to spare.

 Keep in mind that out-source does not have to be an end-all type of
 solution. There are a few other great outsource Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus
 provider.

 We used Postini for a long time, however a few years back they forced us to
 change to a different provider, when they had decided to change their
 business model and 'shove' a ridiculus contract down our throat.

 It turns out, it was the best thing that happed to us. We ended up using
 Katharion, which has been more accurate then Postini's service and the folks
 there have been excellent in providing assitance, and best of all the cost
 is a fraction of Postini.

 Another new but mature provider in the market space is TuCows, I personally
 do not have experience with their service but have heard good things about
 them.

 In our case, we ended up looking at the total cost of outsource vs the cost
 of inhouse solutions + manhours required to optimize and maintain...we
 came up with a figure of $6000-$7000/yes (approx $500/month), as long as the
 total cost of the outsource was less than this, the it was not worth
 bringing it inhouse.

 Additionally we are also able to re-coup some of this expense by being able
 to sell the filtering as a service to corporate customers.

 That still puts pressure on the system resources. As a wireless provider you
 have enough on your plate to deal with. Options include, outsourcing email
 with integrated spam/virus (AS/AV) with IMAP/POP3/Webmail options, or
 outsource the AS/AV and take the load off of your systems.

 Your current mail system is there for backup should you ever need it, if you
 outsource email. We have some clients that split between the two by e.g.,
 keeping their appliance, in this case Barracuda and outsourcing additional
 AS/AV and email.
 Barracuda needs to upgrade their 300/400 units with Gigabit Ethernet, IMO.
 Instead of selling higher priced models or additional units to cover the
 amount of load even for the under 500 user systems.

 The barracuda should do all the checks it can before the bandwidth is every

 setup I mentioned earlier. There are many checks that can be done to verify a 
 legit email before it ever leaves the sending

 I outsource my spam scanning.  I will *not* outsource my e-mail hosting.

 I outsourced anti-spam/anti-virus onto a barracuda model 400 because it
 was the model which would :

  A) Save me 20 hours per week of analyzing and creating rules for my
 SpamAssassin boxes.

  B) Still let me follow every message, every step of the way through
 the systems.

  C) Only need one BSF 400 to handle the load that required 2
 SpamAssassin boxes.

  D) Allow me to rebrand the interface.

  E) Provide a web GUI for users to tweak their individual settings to a
 level which worked for them, with a quarantine holding area other
 than their inbox for the borderline stuff.  False positives suck
 less if you can pull them out of the quarantine.

 Things like Postini provide some of the same benefits.  But I really,
 really worry about B.  I could buy a new BSF model 600 every two years
 for the prices I was quoted by the Postini sales guy (not you).

Don't get me wrong, Barracuda makes a fine appliance and comparing them to a 
hosted solution with far greater processing 
power, 7 global data centers and 14 redundant systems, now with the strength of 
Google's cash and server farms, is two 
different things.

As for B, unfortunately that is a weakness that some IT people can not give up. 
45% of the IT departments in Fortune 1000 
companies in the US do not have too much of that same problem.

 A year or two later, I bought a second model 400 to help deal with the
 scanning load.  Spam volume had more than doubled.  Currently, we see
 more than 700,000 message send attempts to the two boxes per day.  The
 RBLs take out approximately 600,000 of those attempts.

 Your current mail system is there for backup should you ever need
 it, if you outsource email. We have some clients that split between
 the two by e.g., keeping their appliance, in this case Barracuda and
 outsourcing additional AS/AV and email.  Barracuda needs to upgrade
 their 300/400 units with Gigabit Ethernet, IMO. Instead of selling
 higher priced models or additional units to cover the amount of load
 even for the under 500 user systems.

 I'm curious why you think the model 300/400 barracudas are desperately
 in need of gigabit ethernet.  In my experience with e-mail
 handling, the network interface has never been the bottleneck.  An
 anti-spam/anti-virus box needs lots of RAM, CPU and HD IO bandwidth.

This is what we are seeing with our cross-over sales from Cuda boxes coming 
over to Postini and some putting Postini in front 
of the Cuda box. Again the two services offer like services, but are still 
different. Postini is an easy product to offer as 
a reseller and our IT resellers who swap out 300/400 units for Postini tell us 
the box is a bottle neck.

Just in our own office network, we have some fairly high-end computers and run 
different NAS units for continuous backups and 
failover mirrored directories. When we went from a 10/100 to a Gigabit network, 
it was a significant boost to productivity. I 
feel the same could be done for the Cuda box, because selling a box based on 
active users, IMO no longer fits their modeling. 
We have Postini clients with 200-300 users out gunning clients with 3 to 4 
times the amount of users. With Postini, big or 
small, it does not matter.


 I wouldn't want to have to do much more non-RBL based scanning of mail
 with my two model 400s but that's not due to their choice of NIC.

 While I do have a few reservations about Barracuda Networks, it seems
 really weird to be slamming them for only having 100Mbps ethernet on
 their low end models.  The CPU and RAM in the BSF model 400 and below
 could never deal with a full 100Mbps of traffic.  E-mail traffic is less
 than 4% of our total network traffic.


 I would like to try a MailFoundry box because they seem to compare
 favorably to the BSFs at a slightly lower cost.  But, users *hate*
 change and if the MailFoundry didn't work, there would be two changes.
 Users switch to other providers at the slightest hint that there might
 be a change coming.  Users are strange.  Also, I don't have enough
 issues with the BSFs to be that interested in spending time converting
 to another system.

Just a thought, unless you have a 600 or better unit, you are running 1x10/100 
Ethernet on 100-400 units vs. 2xGigabit on to 
600-1000 units, IMO creating a bottleneck even with low to moderate user 
accounts. This is where most of our cross-over sales 
are from, in the lower model units. With the amount of junk email flying around 
out there, even active user accounts under 
250 are pulling in substantial amounts of junk and direct harvest attacks.

 How many Spam emails are you killing per hour? Per day? (There is a Daily
 Traffic graph/email that tell you this)

 I know mine too (Cuda) is sluggish, but it's the amount of incoming spam

 by spam in excess of 500,000 per 24 hours.

 I will agree - Cuda is a PITA and we will begin testing with Jeremy Davis

Yes they do, and we all know how well that has worked for the industry. 
Secondly, they have limited coverage applying mostly 
to the metro areas. A sister company I work with offers the service, but has 
greater sales with ATA based providers offering 
expanded coverage.

Re: [WISPA] Email

2008-05-28 Thread Frank Muto
Email does not have to be a money pit. Ever since our dialup days (97-02) we 
charged for email after the first account. Since 2003 email with spam 
filtering, Postini of course was an add-on charge. When the first major 
storms hit in mid-2005, all of our hosted accounts were put on AS/AV 
filtering and we charged for it. All of our web hosting with email are on 
Postini and we charge for it, or they bring their own.

There is more to email now that there ever was and not just for junk mail 
filtering and viruses, with the latter not as much. Backup email services 
for continuity, compliance and retention services are now a must have 
instead of a nice have. Compliance and backup email services can be 
completely outsourced and can tie in nicely with your current services.

I have IT shops that add message security services to their menu and are 
doing very well. Your local market is full of businesses needing these 
services, especially any business in the health and financial services, 
businesses in need of business continuity and others with just archiving 
needs or spam problems.

Our largest clientele are those with Exchange servers, in-house or hosted. 
Our IT shops like I said before, tie in these additional email services and 
have less customer churn while increasing their average revenue per 
customer.

 about the new Qwest Fiber to the Node product, 
 you need to pay attention to this message and pass it along to others inside 
 your company. Qwest is currently rolling 
 out a new network that will become their primary way of delivering DSL to

 and there is no mechanism yet to allow third party ISP's, (other than MSN), 
 to provide service. We are already losing 
 customers to it in Denver and there's no end in sight. It's a stated goal to 
 make this product eventually replace the ATM

 Internet providers to utilize the network, we 
 will all be out of the DSL business or be forced to resell Qwest.net 
 service. Here are the main problems we see as a 
 third party ISP with losing control over the customer's data: - No control 
 over IP space at all - No IP routing 
 control - No Quality of Service for services like VPN or VoIP - No ability 
 to monitor usage for bandwidth abuse, etc. - 
 No ability to monitor traffic for viruses, attacks, etc. - No 
 troubleshooting capabilities for network issues - No 
 troubleshooting of connection troubles (authentication, etc.) - No control 
 over rDNS (Reverse DNS for IP addresses) - No 
 customer choice! (This will definitely drive customers to Comcast) - No 
 margins for ISP's after circuit and Qwest.net fees 
 (in reseller model) - Qwest.net not invisible even in wholesale environment 
 because of IP's In short, this product will 
 be a catastrophe to all third party ISP's because it will eventually put us 
 out of business. I urge you to contact your 
 Qwest representatives as soon as possible and make it clear to them how

[WISPA] FCC Puts Rural Broadband On The Front Burner

2008-02-01 Thread Frank Muto
Earlier today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced two new 
joint initiatives to push the continued buildout of U.S. rural broadband 
networks.

First, the two are launching an online resource for those in rural America 
looking to bring the benefits of broadband 
services to their communities. As such, the Broadband Opportunities for Rural 
America Web site 
(http://wireless.fcc.gov/outreach/ruralbroadband) offers the expertise and 
resources of the FCC and USDA in a single, 
easily-accessible location and user-friendly format.

The new site also provides information on the different technology platforms 
that can be used to provide broadband service, 
how to access spectrum necessary for delivery of wireless broadband services, 
government funding for broadband services, 
relevant FCC and USDA proceedings and initiatives, and data on broadband 
deployment. In addition, there are instructions on 
how to locate companies already licensed to provide wireless services in or 
near specific rural communities as well as links 
to other government and private resources related to encouraging broadband 
opportunities in rural America.

In addition, the FCC and the USDA plan to conduct four educational workshops 
focused on rural broadband during the course of 
this year. In these forums, communities and organizations in rural America will 
be able to learn about the resources, 
programs, and policies of the FCC and USDA regarding broadband technology.

Topics will include:
The different technology platforms used to provide broadband services,
USDA funding for broadband deployment,
the FCC's Rural Health Care Pilot program, and
wireless spectrum access.

Participating communities and organizations also will be encouraged to share 
their experiences about broadband deployment in 
rural and hard-to-reach areas.
The workshops, held in each of the four regions of the country - 
Northeast/Mid-Atlantic, South/Midwest, Central, and West - 
are set for the following places and dates: Blacksburg, Va. (April 30); 
Saginaw, Mich. (June 19); Austin, Texas (Sept. 18); 
and Phoenix (Nov. 20). Those interested in attending must register with the FCC 
no later than Feb. 25.

We've standardized on XP/PRO SP2 for the office.

We tried Vista and, although some fanatics show it can be a bit but
definitely slower, that's not meaningful.

The computers, themselves, suffer intractable problems with Vista with
less
than 2G memory, but with that memory or more, it's OK.  (Why it becomes
unstable under 2Gb is the subject of wild, physical arguments).

We haven't had driver problems.

We have had significantly more hang-ups with Vista.  Not many, but perhaps
50% more.

The GUI is, perhaps, more intuitive but it splits functionality that was,
in
XP, in one place into several far flung places.  It may make more sense
but
drives the old folks (over 20 years old) crazy.

The reallocation of facilities that were in XP-HOME and XP-PRO into
fragmented pieces within an array of options of Vista upgrades is driving
the support guys nuts.  Ordinary users who had a handle on XP are now
calling support.

The removal of OUTLOOK 2007 from Student/Teacher 2007 meant that folks
with
a teacher wife and student kids can't use it for work.  That just makes
people mad at Microsoft.

Since we stick with Lenovo/IBM for laptops, etc., we can still order
XP/PRO
(at a small cost).

It doesn't appear that VISTA was a good business/technical decision on
Microsoft's part but I'm sure it will pay off through the sales of new
PCs.

It's not the end of the world...it just appears dumb...really dumb.

It turns out that Macintosh computers with Microsoft Office have been more
and more popular and we accept that for our system.  They have caused no
problems...perhaps because the Mac-fanatics stick together and
aggressively
help each other the way early PC users used to do.  There are only a tiny
fraction of PC users that utilize applications that aren't available on
Macintosh as the same or better.  That argument doesn't fly anymore.

Re: [WISPA] CALEA

2007-11-30 Thread Frank Muto
I have a question though you may or may be able to answer it. In point 1, you said you gave the LEA information on how to 
word their subpoena? Was this knowledge based on an attorneys consult? I'll assume it may have been unless you are an 
attorney yourself.


Secondly, why would an attorney or anyone provide legal consult to the LEA? The DOJ has all the required information any 
LEA needs to obtain the information they need in an investigation. Most of it is basically fill in the blank and the forms 
have multiple QA to write up the subpoena.


Having gone through enough of this over the past couple years, I have doubts that helping an LEA is in your best interest. 
How do you warrant or have legal standing on telling an LEA that their subpoena does not have the correct information for the 
request?


It is up to the LEA to get the proper legal consult they need when writing up a subpoena and or warrant to present to the 
court.

(or not) law enforcement will or will not use CALEA to get information from you/us.  I have about 225 customers in my

Of these cases, 3 of my customers were using Mikrotik and 1 was using ImageStream.  I can't reveal anything related to the 
cases, but I wanted to help people understand what kind of information we are being asked for under CALEA, and what that 
translates to in terms of capability requirements.


1. The first subpeona wanted to know who had a specific IP at a certain time and date.  That was all that was requested. 
This particular WISP has about 450 customers, and about 225 of those are using private IPs that are natted at the border. 
It so happened that the IP we were requested information about was the NAT IP.  I called the officer who had requested the 
data and explained the situation to him.  After an hour or so, he understood that there is nothing we could do without more 
information.  The case was an ongoing thing, and he was tracking contact to a specific website, so we were able to 
determine a specific customer who was using that website.  We did not tell the officer who it was, but we DID explain how 
he needed to word his subpoena so that we COULD get him what he wanted.  After he got the legal jargon to match the 
technical requirements of our capabilities, we were able to capture and provide him with the communications he was needing.


2. The next 3 were related to one another (sort of).  In this case, the subpeona asked for customer billing records and 
login information for the past year for 3 IP addresses.  We had part of this information (this WISP used public IP 
addresses for all his customers).  Since the subpeona requested historical information, we were somewhat limited in what we 
could provide, but we did get the required information and LEA was happy.


3. The other 2 were not related but were similar.  They asked for telephone information that the targets made between a 
couple of dates in the past.  Since the WISPs in both cases were not the provider of the VoIP (they were just the 
transport) service, we explained to the LEA that the information they are seeking would not be available at the WISP, 
eventually they went elsewhere for their information (I guess), but the WISPs, in the end, did not provide ANY customer 
data to the LEA.


The point I am making here is that all of the information requested in all 3 cases, was easily obtainable using equipment 
available within the WISP networks already.  We used information that the Mikrotik and/or Imagestream enabled us to gather, 
log files and RADIUS logs to gather login information and capturing of data along with their business records to answer all 
6 subpeonas (7 if you count the one that had to be re-done).


In all cases, the law enforcement officer who was our first contact was not technically capable of understanding what they 
wanted/needed, but without fail, there WERE people at the agencies involved who were.  Of these subpeonas, 3 were from the 
FBI, 2 were local LE and 1 was homeland security.


Incidentally, none of these WISPs spent any extra money to be compliant (other than some legal work that had to be done). 
Billing for my time cost less than $350 (much less in some cases) to help gather necessary information.  All of these (I 
think) ended up billing these costs to the LEA and as far as I know

[WISPA] Sprint and Clearwire scrap WiMax deal

2007-11-08 Thread Frank Muto

Sprint and Clearwire scrapped a pact to build a nationwide high-speed wireless 
network based on WiMax.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119457536653487513.html

The two companies signed a letter of intent in July to pursue the partnership, which they hoped to finalize within 60 days. 
But the complexities of the transaction and the departure last month of Gary Forsee as Sprint's chief executive officer made 
it too difficult to reach a final pact, the people say.
The unraveling of the preliminary agreement is a blow to Clearwire. The company, founded by cellphone pioneer Craig McCaw, 
has staked its future on WiMax, a longer-range cousin of Wi-Fi that can theoretically provide wireless broadband access from 
laptops and cellphones at speeds comparable to what cable operators provide.

HBU uses Blowfish, Cobian 8 has RSA-Rijndael or Blowfish or even WinZIP AES to encrypt on their side and keep it stored 
encrypted on our remote server. If it's stored unencrypted on our server, that's their problem since all we are doing is 
holding it for them. If they want a redundant copy of their data stored, we can do that too.

I think the real question I would ask - - going over a wireless link is:

WHERE THE HECK IS THE SECURITY?

I mean you are going to back up someone's books with no (encryption) (like
blowfish) security? I am not talking WEP either! What about restoring the
client's data? Is that something that that will take intervention on your
part? How about the client's ability to access his backups 24/7 in case of

Re: [WISPA] PITA customers...

Back in our dialup days, we when we started cueing up calls with this call

significantly reducing PITA calls. Besides filtering out PITA calls, it kept 
our employees on their toes as well.

I can tell you that if you listen closely, even to those PITAs, sometimes 
you learn things you need to know. It may be that someone is doing things 
to that sector that are killing service quality for your PITA customer. I 
try hard to give the average PITA the benefit of the doubt as long as I 
can. Sometimes I learn things I need to know about my own network.


Truth is we all get some of these PITAs, though, that seem to be devoid of 
logic, tact and common sense and I think most of us are probably all doing 
the same things with small exceptions when it comes to firing the bad 
customer. I try to let them go as amicably as I can. It makes it harder 
for the PITA to try to paint you as a jerk to others if you are 
professional and courteous in all your correspondence with them. 
Occasionally the PITA becomes a faithful and loyal supporter of your 
company if you can actually eliminate all their concerns. It is rare but 
they will bring you countless customers if you get past all their issues.


Like others here I am sure, I have to say there is something cathartic 
about the feeling of knowing you gave them their walking papers after you 
did all you could to please them. I know my staff wants to throw a party 
when some of the PITAs leave.   :-)

[WISPA] Sprint Nextel and Clearwire

2007-07-19 Thread Frank Muto
Sprint Nextel and Clearwire have announced that they will jointly construct 
their WiMAX networks and eventually sell the services jointly under one 
brand. The deal still needs to gain approval by the Department of Justice 
and the FCC because the companies plan on exchanging selected 2.5 GHz 
spectrum license assignments.


Under the network build-out plan, Sprint Nextel will focus its efforts 
primarily on geographic areas covering approximately 185 million people, 
including 75 percent of the people located in the 50 largest markets, while 
Clearwire will focus on areas covering approximately 115 million people. 
Initially, the two companies expect to build out network coverage to 
approximately 100 million people by the end of 2008, with seamless roaming 
enabled between the deployed areas.


Our joint efforts will result in customers benefiting from a more extensive 
network, operating sooner and using our respective spectrum more efficiently 
than either company could have on its own, said Clearwire Chief Executive 
Officer Ben Wolff.


The companies will sell services under one brand and Clearwire will sell 
subscriptions to the service at Sprint locations within Clearwire's 
territories. Sprint plans to provide dual-mode (CDMA-WiMAX) services 
nationwide to its customers both on its own and Clearwire's portion of the 
WiMAX networks.

[WISPA] Macquarie Buys U.S. Wireless Tower Company

2007-07-02 Thread Frank Muto

Macquarie Buys U.S. Wireless Tower Company
Shu-Ching Jean Chen, 07.02.07, 2:49 AM ET

HONG KONG -
Macquarie, Australia's largest investment bank, is making inroads into the
large yet underdeveloped wireless telecom infrastructure market in the U.S.,
agreeing to buy the wireless tower operator Global Tower Group for 1.7
billion Australian dollars ($1.43 billion) from Blackstone Group.

Since its founding in 2003 by real estate and telecom entrepreneur Marc C.
Ganzi, Global Tower has built a portfolio of 2,500 signal-relay towers and
4,600 rooftop sites across the U.S. and Puerto Rico, securing long-term
leases from property owners. Some 86.5% of its leases are for longer than 15
years and 89% are unburdened by complicated revenues-sharing arrangements.

The U.S. mobile telecom industry's Big Four - T-Mobile from Deutsche
Telekom, Verizon, Sprint Nextel and ATT - will account for about 63% of
Global Tower's revenue following the completion of ATT's acquisition of
Dobson Communications, a major Global Tower customer.

With a relatively low rate of adoption of advanced wireless services such as
3G, Wi-Fi and Wimax, the U.S. is seen as having potential to be a
high-growth market. The U.S. has a penetration rate of 77% for these
services, behind the U.K.'s 117%, Sweden's 110%, Taiwan's 102%, Australia's
95% and Japan's 78%.

Through this acquisition, Macquarie Communications Group has gained a
timely position in a familiar industry in the attractive U.S. market, said
Scott Davies, CEO of Macquarie Communications.

Macquarie Infrastructure Partners will hold 56.2% of Global Tower and
Macquarie Communications Infrastructure Group will take 28.7%.

Davies added that Global Tower would complement with its existing North
American assets bases of satellite dish facilities in Los Angeles and
Washington operated by its subsidiary Arquiva, a British wireless telecom
services provider of broadcast towers, teleports, and wireless
infrastructure.

There are 115,000 wireless towers in the U.S. operated by a disparate range
of companies, but 45% are now in the hands of three companies: Global Tower
and its rivals Crown Castle International and SBA Communications, according
to Macquarie.

The weighted average remaining ground lease term in the industry is a
staggering 24 years. Such long lease terms pose high entry barriers to new
entrants who do not go in via acquisitions.

The acquisition, when completed, would account for a small 3% share of
Macquarie Communications' EBITDA and would not affect its existing dividend
distribution guidance of about 10% growth for fiscal years of 2008 and 2009
and between 5% and 10% for 2010.

[WISPA] ATT Buys Rural Wireless Provider - Dobson

2007-07-02 Thread Frank Muto

AP

Shares of Dobson Communications Corp. were on pace to open at an all-time 
high Monday after ATT Inc. agreed to buy the rural wireless provider for 
$2.8 billion.


ATT said Friday it will pay $13 per share for Dobson, adding 1.7 million 
subscribers to its network of 62 million. Dobson shares closed at $11.11 
Friday, making ATT's offer a 17-percent premium. The stock rose $1.44, or 
13 percent, to $12.55 in premarket electronic trading.


Analyst Mike McCormack of Bear Stearns approved of the deal.

Though the acquisition will have limited financial impact on ATT, we 
believe the acquisition makes strategic sense given the reasonable valuation 
and lack of network overlap, he said.


JPMorgan analyst Thomas J. Lee said shares of other rural carriers, 
including Rural Cellular Corp., SunCom Wireless Holdings Inc. and Centennial 
Communications Corp., would rise on the news.


ATT shares rose 15 cents to $41.65 premarket, up from Friday's close at 
$41.50.


Dobson shares reached an all-time high of $11.34 Thursday

It would be a great help if WISPA as a group and

Re: [WISPA] Dues Value was What is WISPA?

2007-05-18 Thread Frank Muto
That is going to take a whole lot of $25 a month membership dues. I highly 
suggest contacting COMPTEL and get some mentoring on what it will take to 
get WISPA to the level that Matt has described here. I would be happy to 
team up some potential people to talk to over there. COMPTEL has been a good 
friend of the WBIA and helped us a great deal in our beginning.


It is all going to take funding. I would highly recommend a strong 
membership drive starting with next weeks ISPCON and any other industry 
conference WISP related. WISPs themselves need to understand, that their $25 
monthly contributions are an INVESTMENT for their FUTURE and also provides 
them a contributory voice within the organization. I would also hit up the 
vendors of the products and services all WISPs use. Without WISPs and their 
growing numbers, they will limit they own sales channels.


There are plenty of no-to-low cost things to do as well as those that will 
take some cash to do so. In any event, there is no longer a free ride that 
can be assumed and if this organization is to grow to the level it needs to 
be, it needs people and funding to do so.


As others have said, what is WISPA doing to sell itself? Yes, that is an 
important mechanism of running an organization that needs contributory 
funding to work.
For the most part, marketing, advertising, PR etc., has not been a strong 
suite for xISPs. So for this to happen, WISPA needs to step outside the 
peering ranks of WISPs and get a PR person/firm  involved to drive 
membership and create the buzz of what WISPA is all about, what they are 
doing and what they have accomplished.

Re: [WISPA] Dues Value was What is WISPA?

2007-05-18 Thread Frank Muto
Which is true, but they have been around a long time and part of several 
merged associations. You need to start somewhere and by looking COMPTEL as a 
model, you can form a basis on how WISPA can improve. They also have a CEO 
council made up within COMPTEL as a separate entity.


Let's look at this in a smaller scale. If you have 1k WISPs paying $25 a 
month, it adds up... that's $25k monthly. Now let's say you up it to $50, 
now you are at $50k.


Now with those examples, the next issue you will get is the moans on what 
WISPA is doing with the money. Everyone will be on the bandwagon on what to 
do with the funding. So, unless the group matures and growth is established 
organically with the understanding that WISPs all WISPs must join together 
and show solidarity to those that they are working for, it does not matter 
what the cost is.

[WISPA] $25 is cheap insurance... Was: What is WISPA? was Promotion of services on-list

- Original Message - 
From: Marlon K. Schafer (509) 982-2181 [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Folks, don't join WISPA because of what WISPA can do for you.  That's not 
what WISPA is about.  Oh sure, we do what we can when we can, but the MAIN 
focus of WISPA is that of improving the OVERALL industry.  We're focused 
on better rules, better laws, better training etc.


We didn't form WISPA so that we could give you equipment discounts, free 
legal advice, insurance discounts, etc.  The day will come when those 
things are all possible, but it'll take large membership numbers to get 
there.



Now this is spot on. WISPA is an ADVOCATE for the WISP industry. It should 
never become, IMO an association buying group. Sure vendors may look at 
WISPA as a market channel and wish to support it with paid advertisements 
and sponsorships. But, unless there is enough accountable (not made up 
numbers)membership they may not care to support the organization.


As a former dialup ISP/Web-host, I know where most of you stand. I am 
supporting WISPA because I feel the WISP may be the last-stand against total 
extinction of the Independent Service Provider. Sure there is still dialup 
and some are able to provide cable/DSL broadband, but nowhere in the numbers 
we were during the dialup years. The WISP has the opportunity to create and 
maintain a viable last-mile alternative to the RBOC's and CableCo's.


One thing that WISP's have going is that are talking the FCC's language, 
RF's! They understand this better than they do the competitive tension that 
came with the 96 Telco Act. The WISP's having an Advocate such as WISPA is 
very welcome in D.C. and that is why these baby step meetings and working 
the CALEA issue is so, so very important that WISPA has the FULL SUPPORT of 
the Industry.


Paying $25 a month to get a voice at the table of those that can SHUT you 
down, rather quickly, is cheap insurance of that possibly happening.

2007-05-02 Thread Frank Muto

FYI.
Letter writing tips from our ISPCON Spring 2005 conference program.

The letter is the most popular choice of communication with a congressional 
office. When writing, use fax or e-mail due to the delays of mail delivery 
resulting from the threat of Anthrax and other bio hazards. Write your 
letter on professional letterhead. Be sure to include your full name, 
address, phone number and request a reply.


Your letter will be read by an aide.  While legislators themselves are 
usually not able to read all of the correspondence sent to their offices, 
that does not mean your letter will not have an impact.  Congressional 
Representatives rely heavily on their aides to provide them with concise and 
thorough information.  Aides keep a running tally of letters received for or 
against a given position and report the results regularly to the 
Congressperson.  A well-written, thought provoking letter can educate an 
aide, thereby influencing the legislator.


1.The purpose of your letter should be stated in the first paragraph.
2.Make the topic clear in your first sentence.  For example; I'm writing to 
ask your support of.
3.Give reasons for your position and include personal experience or concrete 
examples.
4.Use your own words and experiences.  Personal letters and real stories are 
more compelling.

5.Ask a question.  By doing so you may receive a personal response.
6.A one-page letter is best.  Only write a longer letter if necessary for 
clarity.

7.Be polite, positive and constructive.  Don't plead and never threaten.
8.Stay on topic.  If you have other issues write another letter pertinent to 
that topic.

Yes, when it comes to dealing with the government, the time is never past

government must either respond or be voted out of office. Government is

Subject: [WISPA] Re: CALEA



Getting the data for the LEA is just one part of compliance. What about
the more practical issues?

CALEA requires:
Establishment of policies and procedures for supervision and control of
officers and employees


Who's got a coupel days to write legalese documents that detail everyting
they wanna know?


Designating a 24/7/265 POC for the LEA


This means that no one or two man WISP can be compliant, unless you hire 
an

answering service, and have people on contact, or else have two of you on
duty 365 days a year, 12 hours a day.One man can't do it himself.


Validating legal authorization for the ELSUR


What's ELSUR?   I thought I'd managed to uncover all the acronyms 
already..

Guess not.


Maintaining secure and accurate records


A summary of all the records you have to maintain would be helpful.


Reporting any CALEA security breaches






AND... filling with the FCC how you are going to do the above.

Not implementing the policies and procedures may result in legal

liability.


Assuming you have all that is needed to be compliant how do you actually
comply with an order? You are going to at least need to collect the
following information:
Telephone number/circuit ID
Start date/time
Officer presenting order
Judge issuing order
Type of ELSUR
Supervising carrier personnel
Certification of “senior official...”
Subscriber name
Date/time order served
Court issuing order
Court docket/file number
Law enforcement officers authorized to receive info
LEA contact numbers
Carrier employees involved

And what about the warrant's validity? CALEA requires the carrier to
determine the following:
Does the Court have jurisdiction over Carrier?
Does the Court Order provide for Technical Assistance?
Has the Court provided for compensation?
If problems arise, how does the carrier address the issues –
inside/outside counsel, Service Bureau, etc

Just in case you are wondering, acting on an invalid subpoena is $1,000
min fine. Further, if you are acting in bad faith, the court can create,
at carrier expense, a court-supervised monitor of your compliance to
ensure due diligence. Any violations detected by the monitor can result
in additional fines.

 ISPCON on May 23-25 is at the Rosen Centre Hotel (@ 9840 International Dr)
 Nearby is the Rosen Plaza Hotel @ 9700 International Dr
 Both have openings as of right now on Kayak.com between $126 and $133 
 per night.
 
 Comfort Inn, Best Western and Quality Inn are $59-$69 per night.
 (The only Comfort Inn I can vouch for is at the corner of International 
 Drive and Sandlake. Brand new. 2 miles away. TGI Fridays is in front, so 
 you can walk to drink and eat). Check tripadvisor.com for reviews.
 
 9101 International Drive (I-Drive) is Pointe Orlando 
 (http://www.pointeorlando.com).
 Quality Inn Plaza and Embassy Suites are closest to the Pointe.
 Pointe Orlando has a Starbucks, Adobe Gila's (home of the 64 oz. 
 Margarita (http://www.adobegilas.com)), Capital Grille (expensive steak 
 house), Hooters, and Maggiano’s Little Italy, where we were going to 
 hold a dinner. However, since there are WISPA  FISPA meetings on the 
 23rd evening, Adobe's may be a better idea. The 24th is ISP-CEO. The 
 25th is Friday night and I am probably heading home at that point.
 
 --- If anyone is coming in on the 22nd, let me know! (Or staying beyond 
 the 25th).
 
 A trolley can take you up and down I-Drive for a nominal fee, BTW.
 
 SeaWorld is just down the street. And Disney is 20 minutes away.
 
 Closest airport is MCO (Orlando International).
 Next closest is probably Tampa - about 2 hours away.
 
 Frank Muto is giving away passes.
 WISPA has a code for free exhibit or discount full passes.
 RAD-INFO does to.
 If nothing else, buy a full day pass Thursday - you get to hear me speak

Re: [WISPA] Mikrotik's (lame) answer to CALEA as of 4/23

2007-04-23 Thread Frank Muto
I do have one question here... does the provider run the risk of privacy when 
capturing data that is not explicitly requested in the warrant or subpoena? 
When the connection is mirrored, will the provider be able to dissect the 
requested data? Because I would assume you can not give the requesting LEA 
anything they did not have a legal request for. 

When we had our dialup ISP, we were very careful in only providing only the 
warranted or subpoenaed information to the requesting LEA.

  Why is that lame? I don't see where this is Mikrotik's problem or issue.

  I'm going to keep saying this over and over and over (started over a year 
ago). Use a smart ethernet switch and mirror your main internet connection to a 
box that can capture the traffic. Then use something like openCalea 
(www.opencalea.org). Even if you have to buy a switch, a box to run the 
software, etc. you are less than $500 total. If you have multiple NOC's, $500 
per location is cheap.

Hello,

It already is, you simply have to enable sniffer of all traffic, and store
the raw data on a server that captures it. You can also use smart switches
that can mirror ports to a capturing server. See discussions on our forum on
this topic.

Frank Muto has set up a deal where your entry to ISPCON is practically 
free when you consider the free 100% WISPA dues payment he will make on 
your behalf. An exhibit pass is free when you use a code from WISPA, 
Frank or Peter. I think ImageStream has a free exhibit hall pass code 
also. I don't know how you could afford to NOT go. I learned one trick 
there last time using the Google Adsense Search feature that now pays me 
several hundred dollars a month in recurring revenues.


Frank, why don't you send that offer out one more time so people can see 
it. It is an amazing offer and Frank deserves a BIG attaboy for stepping 
up in such a big way to help promote WISPA membership while saving money 
for the coming ISPCON show. Good work Frank. Doug I sure hope you will 
reconsider coming to the show. We will have a reception and meeting of 
WISPA at the event also. I hope to see many of you there.

Re: [WISPA] Postini Mail Scanning Service

2007-03-23 Thread Frank Muto

Mark,
As a WISPA sponsoring vendor for Postini, I can offer some information as I 
was a Postini customer before I was asked to become a Postini Partner 
Reseller. Postini uses an MX directed service that redirects your customer's 
messages through the Postini hosted filtering data centers. Accounts can be 
manually created or use one of two automated user creation methods. There 
are no software or hardware concerns and the interface is 100% web based for 
all your system administration.




Since closing down our dialup data center in 2002, we moved all our 
webhosting to our secondary provider we have used from our beginning and 
needed stronger filtering methods. Since we were too far away to administer 
an appliance type service, e.g. Barracuda, Ironport, etc., we gave Postini a 
try. Our main concern was reducing our server loads and increased disc space 
for handling the increasing amount of spam and viruses.




Postini handled this by being at the front edge of the network and killing 
off a significant amount of wasted bandwidth created by spam/viruses, a 
definite plus. Since we did both virtual and dedicated hosting, our 
virtually hosted accounts that had high amounts of spam traffic, we saw 
increased server performance and significant amount of reduced disc space as 
well as reduced bandwidth overall.




The cost of using Postini was genuinely a concern, but so was the potential 
cost of losing revenue from customers wanting a better filtering service and 
costs of increased bandwidth and server resources. We took advantage of 
Postini's 30 day trial and gave all our clients the same. We put all of our 
customer domains on the service and in using Postini's reporting, were able 
to see our largest email contributors and provide those stats to our 
customers on a before and after period of using Postini. This provided a 
good development tool in determining our costs to our customers and how we 
could offer the service to them and at what price.




That said, we also began reaching outside of our own hosted customers and 
promoted Postini to other businesses, especially those hosting their own 
mail servers, e.g., MS Exchange. We again offered free trials and developed 
a significant amount of additional business by promoting Postini and 
leveraging their existing marketing and press credentials. By Postini being 
a hosted service, (Software as a Service - SaaS) we were also able to 
provide businesses with multiple offices a centralized management control of 
their email system messages.




We have customers with as little as five accounts and some with over a 
thousand users and I can honestly say our churn is hardly measurable in 
almost 4 years of providing Postini, because they did not like or afford the 
service. One of the best features I feel Postini offers is a wireless 
feature for filtering to PDA's, e.g. Blackberry and Treo's. We actually have 
a few IT specialty companies promoting this feature alone and doing a very 
good job at that.




As for the impact, all I can say is that in all my time providing Internet 
related services, I have never had an easier time than that in offering 
Postini. In fact, I have completely focused my company's direction on 
providing Postini exclusively and hopefully adding other related email 
services in the future.




In closing, no matter what service you use for spam/virus control, your 
customers need it and want it.

[WISPA] Lawmakers threaten FBI over spy powers

2007-03-20 Thread Frank Muto

Lawmakers threaten FBI over spy powers
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS, Associated Press Writer

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070320/ap_on_go_co/national_security_letters

Republicans and Democrats sternly warned the FBI on Tuesday that it could 
lose its broad power to collect telephone, e-mail and financial records to 
hunt terrorists after revelations of widespread abuses of the authority 
detailed in a recent internal investigation.


Their threats came as the Justice Department's chief watchdog, Glenn A. 
Fine, told the House Judiciary Committee that the FBI engaged in widespread 
and serious misuse of its authority in illegally collecting the information 
from Americans and foreigners through so-called national security letters.


If the FBI doesn't move swiftly to correct the mistakes and problems 
revealed last week in Fine's 130-page report, you probably won't have NSL 
authority, said Rep. Dan Lungren (news, bio, voting record), R-Calif., a 
supporter of the power, referring to the data requests by their initials.


From the attorney general on down, you should be ashamed of yourself, said 
Rep. Darrell Issa (news, bio, voting record), R-Calif. We stretched to try 
to give you the tools necessary to make America safe, and it is very, very 
clear that you've abused that trust.


If Congress revokes some of the expansive law enforcement powers it granted 
in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Issa said, America may be less safe, 
but the Constitution will be more secure, and it will be because of your 
failure to deal with this in a serious fashion.


The FBI's failure to establish sufficient controls or oversight for 
collecting the information constituted serious and unacceptable failures, 
Fine told the committee.


Democrats called Fine's findings an example of how the Justice Department 
has used broad counterterrorism authorities to trample on privacy rights.


This was a serious breach of trust, said Rep. John Conyers (news, bio, 
voting record), D-Mich., the Judiciary chairman. The department had 
converted this tool into a handy shortcut to illegally gather vast amounts 
of private information while at the same time significantly underreporting 
its activities to Congress.


Rep. Jerrold Nadler (news, bio, voting record), D-N.Y., said Congress should 
revise the USA Patriot Act, which substantially loosened controls over the 
letters.


We do not trust government always to be run by angels, especially not this 
administration, Nadler said. It is not enough to mandate that the FBI fix 
internal management problems and recordkeeping, because the statute itself 
authorizes the unchecked collection of information on innocent Americans.


Some Republicans, however, said the FBI's expanded spying powers were vital 
to tracking terrorists.


The problem is enforcement of the law, not the law itself, said Rep. Lamar 
Smith (news, bio, voting record) of Texas, the panel's senior GOP member. 
We need to be vigilant to make sure these problems are fixed.


Fine said he did not believe the problems were intentional, although he 
acknowledged he could not rule that out.


We believe the misuses and the problems we found generally were the product 
of mistakes, carelessness, confusion, sloppiness lack of training, lack of 
adequate guidance and lack of adequate oversight, Fine said.


It really was unacceptable and inexcusable what happened here, he added 
under questioning.


Valerie Caproni, the FBI's general counsel, said she took responsibility for 
the abuses and believed they could be fixed in a matter of months.


We're going to have to work to get the trust of this committee back, and we 
know that's what we have to do, and we're going to do it, she said.


In a review of headquarters files and a sampling of just four of the FBI's 
56 field offices, Fine found 48 violations of law or presidential directives 
during between 2003 and 2005, including failure to get proper authorization, 
making improper requests and unauthorized collection of telephone or 
Internet e-mail records. He estimated that a significant number of ... 
violations throughout the FBI have not been identified or reported.


The bureau has launched an audit of all 56 field offices to determine the 
full extent of the problem. The Senate Judiciary Committee is to hear 
Wednesday from Fine and FBI Director Robert Mueller on the same topic.


In 1986, Congress first authorized FBI agents to obtain electronic records 
without approval from a judge using national security letters. The letters 
can be used to acquire e-mails, telephone, travel records and financial 
information, like credit and bank transactions.


In 2001, the Patriot Act eliminated any requirement that the records belong 
to someone under suspicion. Now an innocent person's records can be obtained 
if FBI field agents consider them merely relevant to an ongoing terrorism or 
spying investigation.

http://www.askcalea.net/standards.html

Please note, there is no entry for ISP's here.  That's because
CALEA compliance requirement is merely a reversal of opinion by the FCC
less than 12 months ago - May 2006.

If you dig into CALEA deeper, you find a requirement for all (switching)
equipment vendors to be compliant.   Technically, this requires all WISP
equipment vendors to be compliant, too.

That would mean that Trango, Deliberant, Motorola, Alvarion, etc, would 
all
have to build CALEA compliance into thier equipment if they, in any way, 
do

any data routing or manipulation.

SBC / Linux based equipment cannot be made compliant until someone pays 
the
licensing and writes the closed source application, and then we all buy 
it.


Potentially, this could raise the price of WISP gear a lot.

Frankly, the more I read this, the more I am convinced that if this 
industry

is to survive this absolutely IDIOTIC nonsense, we're going to have to go
back to Washington DC and tell them THERE IS NO WAY we can conform to 
laws

written for the telco.  The language is wrong, it doesn't translate, the
standards are wrong, they don't hold, it's like demanding that the 
railroads

conform to airline laws, or vice versa.

The FCC is just making this crap up as they go, CALEA has no provisions 
that
make the slightest bit of sense for ISP's, and we need to tell them this 
in

clear and unmistakeable terms.

Frankly, I'm all for WISPA, Part-15 and whoever else, polling the members 
for
a consensus that says we officially tell the FCC to reverse their 
decision,

and that must go back to Congress, and get laws written to cover us, AND
MONEY TO PAY FOR IT, or we'll just refuse.

At the prospect of having 500, 1000, or 3000 ISP's refuse, and absolutely 
NOT

having the means of taking down (much less withstand the public outcry)
everyone, they'll be forced to do the right thing.

Further, someone needs to educate them, that this kind of intercept is 
NOT,

and I mean, NOT necessarily going to provide them squat.  For almost no
effort, anyone can obfuscate the data going through a TCP/IP connection, 
and
you will NOT capture anything useful.  VPN's can be encrypted and even a 
VOIP
call through it would be untraceable, untrackable, undecipherable, and 
I'll

bet that even the FBI cannot break many encryption methods in use today.

Further, it's relatively trivial to multi-home your data transfers, which
means you won't get what you think you're after, and the subject's data 
will

be incomplete.

CALEA made sense for law enforcement purposes for the telcos, but it's
woefully out of data and the notion of alligator clip type listening 
device

tap for internet based communications is sadly ridiculous.

unfortunately, that's what they're trying to do.  CALEA envisioned 
restoring
the simplistic voice recording that used to happen when we had simple 
copper
wires carrying sound across them in analog form.  CALEA was the response 
to

switching and telcos transporting that voice digital. That was deemed
adequate for CALEA from 1994 to 2002 when the FCC suddenly said that CELL
phones had to comply.  Gee, they existed when CALEA was written.

They think that they can just expand the notion of the 'tap' to a 
technology

light years away from what CALEA applies to as written.  It cannot be done
without re-writing the rules of networking, the internet, and the public's
freedom to communicate, as well.

We as an industry owe it to ourselves and we, as citizens, owe it to our
country to JUST SAY NO!.  It's bad governance, bad business, bad misuse 
of

technology...not to mention, just plain wrong for them to take on an
impossible task, and require US to foot the bill for their experimenting.

Re: [WISPA] Is it enough ?

2007-02-25 Thread Frank Muto
In defense of WISPA and those who have previously filed, I do not think you 
can state this as a last minute cause for response. This has been an ongoing 
[beneficial] cause for the WISP. The 04-186 NPRM was first filed by the 
FCC's OET on 5/13/2004 with a First Order  Report w/Further NPRM filed on 
10/18/2006, not discounting the Notice of Inquiry (NOI) listed below.


If you look at the first NPRM and in the first paragraph(¶) towards the end 
it states, ...allowing unlicensed operation in the TV bands could benefit 
wireless internet service providers (WISPS) by improving the service range 
of their existing operations, thereby allowing WISPS to reach new 
customers.


My gosh, this is directly aimed at WISP's!

In addition to a Notice of Inquiry on 12/11/2002 - From footnote from the 
1st NPRM - See Notice of  Inquiry in ET Docket No. 02-380, 17 FCC Rcd 25632 
(2002). The Commission also sought comment on the possibility of allowing 
unlicensed devices to operate in the 3650-3700 MHz band with only the 
minimum restrictions necessary to prevent interference to authorized users 
of the band. However, the matter of unlicensed operation in the 3650-3700 
MHz band is now being addressed in a separate proceeding. See Notice of 
Proposed Rule Making in ET Docket NO. 04-151, FCC 04-100 (re]. April 
23,2004).


In ¶ 10, of the 1st NPRM, you will notice that the FCC does acknowledge WISP 
commenter's; In addition, a number of WISPS filed comments expressing their 
support for making spectrum in the TV bands available for unlicensed use. 
These parties generally submit that use of TV frequencies could improve 
signal coverage.(23).

Only 75 commenter's are listed as filing Comments to the 1st NPRM and 26 
filing Reply Comments, see Appendix A.


Now, the FCC is using data from 1997 under the guidelines of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Analysis (RFA), See Appendix C.


The RFA directs agencies to provide a description of, and, where feasible, 
an estimate of the number of small entities that may be affected by the 
proposed rules, if adopted.m The RFA defines the term small entity as 
having the same meaning as the terms small business, small organization, 
and small business concern under Section 3 of the Small Business Act.m 
Under the Small Business Act, a small business concern is one that: (1) is 
independently owned and operated; (2) is not dominant in its field of 
operations; and (3) meets may additional criteria established by the Small 
Business Administration (SBA).


Appendix C Section A. paragraph 2 of the RFA states in the behalf of WISP's;

These proposals, if adopted, will prove beneficial to manufacturers and 
users of unlicensed technology, including those who provide services to 
rural communities. Specifically, we note that a growing number of wireless 
internet service providers (WISPS) are using unlicensed devices within 
wireless networks to serve the needs of consumers. WISPS around the country 
are providing an alternative high-speed connection in areas where cable or 
DSL services have been slow to arrive. The additional frequency bands where 
operation is proposed will help to foster a viable last mile solution for 
delivering Internet services, other data applications, or even video and 
voice services to underserved, rural, or isolated communities. In addition, 
TV frequencies, which are below 900 MHZ, have less signal attenuation 
through foliage and walls than frequencies above 900 MHz currently used by 
WISPS, thus affording improved signal coverage.


DO you not think this is this worth the time to state your OWN case and 
those of others in the WISP industry? The FCC is giving the WISP industry a 
huge OPPORTUNITY to speak their peace and step up to the plate and be heard. 
This FCC OET NPRM is asking for your input directly and specifically.

That's good, and developing a political network in D.C. is imperative, but 
it's not a part time job. WISPA needs to eventually outsource this job out. 
It's a daily grind on the Hill to get in the right doors and see the right 
people. This does not come cheap and one way or another WISPA needs this. 
They have done a good job getting the ball rolling, but they can not 
dedicate the proper time to walk the halls and be in the right places when 
called on, at times... at the spur of the moment.


WISPA needs two directions at this time and that is developing a recruitment 
of members and a D.C. team. But first, in order to pay for the D.C. team, 
WISPA needs members, paying members, that will support their industry into a 
viable force of competition. The principle members and leadership are not in 
a position to back away from building their business, but are providing the 
interim support needed to launch WISPA into strong and influential 
association for WISP's.


WISPA will also need a front line of Execs, those that can call on their own 
networks in drawing on support, that is financial support, along with 
influence in D.C. Just like launching a new business and looking for 
funding, it's the money spent on the recruitment of those that can bring on 
the cash support.

As the old saying goes, ignorance is no excuse for knowing the law... 
Sure, keeping up with the FCC is at times daunting, but they have a website 
section dedicated to wireless; http://wireless.fcc.gov/ and also a mailing 
list of FCC actions. There are also many other resources as well.


As a business owner, you have a fiduciary responsibility to know, or at 
least be aware of issues effecting your industry. Doesn't matter what your 
business is, it could be selling hotdogs for that matter, but there are 
rules, laws, statues, regulations etc., of many different things a business 
must be aware of for local, state or federal.


Industry groups such as WISPA can't force anyone to listen, let alone that 
people really need to do their part as part of the industry solidarity. This 
statement goes back to the same ones we all heard about the wireline 
associations being responsible for getting the word out. Getting the word 
out to their supporting members is one thing, being responsible to thousands 
of others is another.


Neither one of these issues, CALEA or Form 477 are new and that there is a 
sever lack of information is exaggerated.

The main suggestion that I can make is to contact as many WISPs as can be 
identified within the US and let them know about the FCC reporting 
requirements, about form 477, about CALEA in general, about WISPA's 
efforts to enable reasonable CALEA compliance.  As you noted... you have 
used this forum to get the word out.  But many WISPs are not on this 
forum.  I think that the WISPA community needs outreach (mail, phone 
calls, etc) to WISPs offlist if efforts to educate are going to succeed.


Reading the CALEA RO's it amazes me that either the FCC or the DoJ 
believe that broadband ISPs have effectively been put on notice regarding 
their need to comply with CALEA.  The way the Order reads, it appears the 
agency assumes that ISPs have always held themselves out as 
telecommunications carriers and that broadband ISPs know or should have 
known about their obligations to comply with CALEA since CALEA was created 
in 1995. Furthermore, it indicates that ISPs know that they have an 
affirmative obligation to obtain a registration number from the FCC and to 
file with the FCC as a telecommunications provider.


I don't believe that poor compliance with regards to CALEA regulations is 
necessisarily due to the obstanence of ISPs.  I contend that the poor 
compliance with regards to CALEA is due to a severe lack of information 
and lack of understanding.  Lets face it... just a few years ago, 
broadband ISPs were told that they were information service providers 
and not telecommunications providers.  Therefore, we did not qualify for 
unbundled-network-elements or co-location facilities within a CO but we 
were exempt from collecting  USF fees.  Now, the RO for CALEA has 
re-interpretted the term and re-classified broadband internet providers as 
telecommunications providers for the purposes of CALEA.  This 
reinterpretation is at very least confusing and it leaves many ISPs with 
the feeling that they are or should be exempt from CALEA regulation.


Because the FCC has taken such a drastic change in position regarding the 
regulation and classification of broadband internet service providers, it 
seems that actual notice to the effected parties would have been more 
appropriate (during the promulgation of the rule and order).  Now that the 
order has already been made and the deadline is quickly approaching, there 
is no more time to wait for government intervention.  Its up to industry 
groups like WISPA to fill the gap and contact WISPs and let them know 
about their obligations.

And you may be right and that is my point in drawing out this answer Martin 
made to the committee. He also states the reclass would eliminate 
unnecessary regulatory barriers and clarifications of such, though he does 
not provide an example. And if his agenda for this reclass does only effect 
licensed spectrum, how will that effect the regulatory burdens on the UL 
provider? This may be the NPRM that brings a significant amount of the UL 
providers out of the closet, so to speak... or maybe not.

All,

I got the impression Martin did not have WISP's in mind when he made this 
decision.


As quoted from the article;

He added it also would “establish a consistent regulatory framework 
across broadband platforms.” This is the same rationale Martin has used to 
support deregulation of DSL, BPL and cable modem Internet access. He said 
action on the wireless broadband question would be especially timely since 
the FCC just auctioned AWS-1 spectrum for wireless broadband and is 
preparing for a 700MHz auction.

Scriv,

The particular paragraph that I pointed out that this was timely because 
of the 700MHz Auction. After reading the pdf file that Frank posted it 
looks like Martin feels that there is enough UL spectrum in the 5Ghz 
range to last WiFi providers far into the future. Martin did comment on 
White Spaces being used for low power devices but mentioned they were 
still working on technical issues. The emphasis was put directly 
spectrum auctions being an important part of their strategy to build out 
mobile broadband networks.


I did paraphrase a bit but is all spelled out starting on page 7 
paragraph 3.


As far as I know the last time the information services issue came up 
the FCC was talking specifically about the CableCo's.


I hope this was helpful.

Re: [WISPA] salary

Thought I would throw this out about the GAO's report on company formations. 
http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d06376.pdf


This may or not be relevant to the topic at hand, but may be parallel 
information to be aware of.


Cliff note summary from the report.

Why the study:
Companies form the basis of most commercial and entrepreneurial activities 
in market-based economies; however, shell companies, which have no 
operations, can be used for illicit purposes such as laundering money. Some 
states have been criticized for requiring minimal ownership information to 
form a U.S. company, raising concerns about the ease with which companies 
may be used for illicit purposes. In this report, GAO describes (1) the 
kinds of information each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and 
third party agents collect on companies, (2) law enforcement concerns about 
the use of companies to hide illicit activity and how company information 
from states and agents helps or hinders investigations, and (3) implications 
of requiring states or agents to collect company ownership information.


What the GAO found:
Most states do not require ownership information at the time a company is 
formed, and while most states require corporations and limited liability 
companies (LLC) to file annual or biennial reports, few states require 
ownership information on these reports. With respect to the formation of 
LLCs, four states require some information on members, who are owners of the 
LLC. Some states require companies to list the names and addresses of 
directors, officers or managers on filings, but these persons may not own 
the company. Nearly all states screen company filings for statutorily 
required information, but none verify the identities of company officials. 
Third-party agents may submit formation documents to the state on a company's 
behalf, usually collecting only billing and statutorily required information 
for formations. These agents generally do not collect any information on 
owners of the companies they represent, and instances where agents told us 
they verified some information were rare.

Marlon,
Mario may be talking about the use of the catchall user under the domain 
settings. The catchall user is a legacy feature that was available as a work 
around for directory sync issues. This may or may not be discontinued, but 
may be used in limited setups. The problem is that people are using the 
catchall user to filter complete domains instead of paying for actual user 
accounts to be spam filtered. Some people where also doing this with aliases 
and thus the limit on 5 aliases per primary user account. If anyone using 
Postini is doing this now, I suggest not doing so.


Postini does however have a new Directory Sync feature for the Service 
Provider Edition as well as filtering all unregistered users for viruses. 
They have also added a second virus scan using Authentium, When McAfee scans 
an email clean it then will be scanned once again by Authentium.

Postini has what is called, non-account bouncing and it will allow those 
accounts not in the Postini data base to be passed through. Another benefit 
is that Postini will filter all non-accounts for viruses using two filtering 
engines, McAfee and Authentium. If McAfee finds an email clean, it will be 
also be scanned by Authentium.
With non-account bouncing, you can also see those email accounts via

Google leaders stick with $1 salary
According to the search engine's latest proxy filing, Eric Schmidt, Larry 
Page and Sergey Brin each turned down a raise.

By Paul R. La Monica, CNNMoney.com senior writer
March 31, 2006: 4:38 PM EST
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Google's co-founders and chief executive officer 
were offered a raise this year by the company's compensation committee, but 
the three turned it down and are sticking with their current annual salary 
of $1.


The search engine company made the disclosure in its proxy statement, which 
was filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. CEO Eric 
Schmidt and co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin first requested that 
their salary be cut to $1 in the second quarter of 2004, just before the 
company's initial public offering. Prior to that, Schmidt was making 
$250,000 a year while Page and Brin each earned a salary of $150,000.


In Friday's filing, Google (Research) said that due to our continued strong 
performance, the leadership by Eric, Sergey and Larry throughout the year, 
and below-market cash compensation levels, the Committee determined that an 
increase in cash compensation opportunities was merited, and we offered 
Eric, Sergey and Larry an increase in salary and bonus for 2006.


The company added that Schmidt, Page and Brin turned the offer down because 
their primary compensation continues to come from returns on their 
ownership stakes in Google. As significant stockholders, their personal 
wealth is tied directly to sustained stock price appreciation and 
performance, which provides direct alignment with stockholder interests.


According to the filing, Schmidt owns about 12.45 million shares of Google, 
which are worth about $4.86 billion based on the company's most recent stock 
price. Brin owns about 31.6 million Google shares and Page owns a little 
more than 32 million shares. So their stakes are each worth more than $12 
billion based on current stock prices.

Check with your CPA on that.
The IRS likes to see salary and other activities that represent that your 
company really is a company and not a tax shelter so that you avoid the 
sole proprietor tax schedule.
(It's called piercing the veil -- if you don't have minutes and annual 
shareholder meetings and run it like a business, you lose the corporate 
shield for tax purposes AND for liability as in civil litigation).




- Original Message - 
From: Larry Yunker [EMAIL PROTECTED]


I think you are on the mark here... according to what I picked up through 
my Business Planning coursework, the IRS has fairly consistently applied a 
reasonableness test to the salary of a CEO who is also a majority 
shareholder.  But reasonable is a fairly broad term.  Zero would not be 
reasonable in any case, but $10,000 or more might meet the reasonableness 
standard for companies with limited revenues.  On the other hand, if your 
company is turning $1MM in sales, you better be paying your full time CEO 
substantially more than $10,000 because the IRS will see right through 
that ploy.  In addition, if you try to pay the CEO through an incentive 
program (dividends or stock options) in lieu of salary, the IRS will treat 
the capital-gains as real income and will tax the CEO at the higher 
personal rate.  You have to provide a balance of salary and other 
non-salary incentives in order to get the maximum tax advantage.

Re: [WISPA] Overage plan help

If you have not done it already, putting everyone on your Postini system 
will decrease your mail server bandwidth substantially.

I want to keep billing per bit.  It's, by far, the most effective way to 
compete against cable and dsl.  It's also a good way to push the hogs over 
to competing services.  Our average user is running at about 1.7 gigs per 
month.  This includes all of my servers and the mail server alone hit 50 
gigs last month.  So I'll bet that the average user is actually under 1.5 
gigs per month.

[WISPA] FYI - MS Word Zero Day Flaw

2006-12-08 Thread Frank Muto
The vulnerability cannot be exploited automatically through e-mail. For an 
attack to be successful a user must open an attachment that is sent in an 
e-mail message.

 In a Web-based attack scenario, an attacker would have to host a Web site that 
contains a Word file that is used to attempt to exploit this vulnerability. In 
addition, compromised Web sites and Web sites that accept or host user-provided 
content could contain specially crafted content that could exploit this 
vulnerability. An attacker would have no way to force users to visit a 
malicious Web site. Instead, an attacker would have to persuade them to visit 
the Web site, typically by getting them to click a link that takes them to the 
attacker's site.

Re: [WISPA] Electronically Stored Information In Litigation Rules

2006-12-06 Thread Frank Muto
Here is a handy link to a PDF whitepaper on the new E-discovery rules - 
http://tinyurl.com/htarf


Below is a section that may dispell the FUD.

Rule 37 — Failure to Make Disclosure or Cooperate in Discovery; Sanctions: 
New subsection 37(f) is added which
states, in full, Absent exceptional circumstances, a court may not impose 
sanctions under these rules on a party for
failing to provide electronically stored information lost as a result of 
routine, good-faith operation of an electronic
information system. The Advisory Committee Notes explain that the premise 
for this amendment is that ordinary
computer use necessarily involves routine alteration and deletion of 
information for reasons unrelated to litigation.

Don’t Panic, But New Discovery Of Electronically Stored Information In 
Litigation Rules Now Apply

By Linda Markus Daniels, Special To LTW

Editor’s note: Linda Markus Daniels is a co-founder of the RTP-based law 
firm Daniels Daniels  Verdonik.


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. - Over the last week or so there have been a 
number of articles about new rules related to litigation, portending that 
there could be punishments for undertaking routine computer backups or 
destroying legacy data from obsolete systems. Don’t panic!


Many of these articles are either misinformed or taking a broad brush to a 
complex and yet untested amendment to the Federal Rules of Civil 
Procedure, the rules under which parties to a lawsuit in federal court 
(only) request and receive documents and other information in the 
possession the opposing party.

Re: [WISPA] WISPA has a new Vendor Menber - Welcome FSM Marketing Group, Inc.

2006-12-03 Thread Frank Muto

Thank you John, for that kind introduction. I am looking forward to working
with WISPA and supporting the members of the association. While I have not
operated or worked for a WISP, there are many of the same issues I once had
when operating our dialup ISP.

If I may, I would like to provide a little background history of how we got
started with Postini. In early 2003 a few of our old ISP domains were
getting hit with direct harvest - DHA's and were bogging down the shared
servers were we using. In all, there were only 3 emails that covered those
domains, but in the past some 225k mailboxes were used.

Apparently, email accounts take a while to die out as well as the spammers
hitting anything they can find. The server was seeing some 50-100k SMTP
attempts and our host provider asked that we move those domains to a
dedicated box with some edge filtering. Since adding another appliance would
not solve the bandwidth issue, it would also be another point of failure to
potentially contend with.

I called Postini and took a test drive and was pleased with the results.
Just before our 30-day trial was just about to run out, our Postini
representative asked if I would be willing to become a Postini Partner in
reselling their services to companies like ours and other ISP, Webhosts etc.
I said why not and took the challenge.

Now fast forward 3-1/2 years and I feel we are at the right time and place
to venture out beyond our normal sales channel and go directly to the
market. I sincerely hope that I can be helpful to the members of WISPA, not
only in providing a service, but in also providing any of my own experience
or empirical knowledge.

Postini may not be the right for everyone, but you also may have other
customers looking for options and Postini may just be the right fit. Postini
is easy to monetize additional revenue because of its structure of an
outsourced solution. I will be talking more about these benefits in the
weeks and months ahead.




Sincerely,
Frank Muto
President

Re: [WISPA] New Recording LAW in effect today?

2006-12-01 Thread Frank Muto
To dispel the FUD about this, the law is dealing with the 2006 Amendments to 
the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure addressing discovery of electronically 
stored information. Link to pdf http://tinyurl.com/htarf review. 

Secondly, if you are presented with a properly written subpoena, you do have 
rules to live by, e.g., Electronic Communications Privacy Act or 1986.

 As a common carrier I can understand and agree. What about providing E-mail 
 services to our customers, do we then need to keep copies of all e-mail that 
 comes into or goes out our server?

 We are common carriers.  We no more have to copy peoples e-mail than the 
 phone company has to record the contents of every call.

I'm going to look into this, but current law ALREADY requires ISPs to
retain records of e-mail traffic and Web searches for 90 days. This was
per an amendment to the 1986 Stored Communications Act.
