Java Server/Client + Server Firewall Safety

Q: Java Server/Client + Server Firewall Safety

Hi I'm working on a client/server with the Java programming language and trying to figure out how to protect my server. With my current Virus/Firewall protection suite theres nothing I can do to keep out unwanted Java applications on the port I choose to allow the Java SE Binary through for clients accessing the server application. ESET Smart Security 4 is what I am using. Does anybody know of a security suite that would allow only a specific Java application to get through the firewall? I'm not to sure on this subject because my firewall is identifying any Java application as only the "Java SE Binary" and not I'm sure if you can even really name your Java application like you would something you would write in C++. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?
 

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

A friend is moving his business, and the new business park that he's setting up shop in does not have anyway to get any wired internet to his building, excluding a T1 line, which he can't justify the cost of.

One windows 7 machine acts as the server, primarily for Quickbooks database, and there are two other windows 7 machines that are clients, reading off said database.

He's getting one of those usb dongles for wireless internet service, for the server only (the other two computers will be tethered to a smartphone for internet for QB and windows updates periodically).

They do NOT want to share the servers wireless connection to the other machines.

My only concern was if the server will continue to try to check the LAN for internet connectivity, or will it check both network connections when one fails, or is there a setting I can tell them to change to ensure it knows to go to the wireless dongle for internet all the time, without interfering with the workstations talking to the server over the LAN to get to the database?

The setup at the old office was business class DSL, they are using a relatively new Linksys router, which had the DSL authentication information.

Thank you!

I managed to find a solution this morning, for anyone that's interested, the whole article is here: Multiple Network Connections at the Same Time on Windows | Ivan Zlatev

But the short answer is, under the advanced properties of TCP/IP v4, uncheck automatic metric, set your internet to a value of 1, and the LAN to a value of 9999.

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to

Hi, my ultimate goal for my questions is so that my laptop can access my home LAN anywhere as long as it has the Internet. For example, I have network shares named \\A\Z, \\B\D on my home network. My laptop, when it is in the LAN can just map those shares. Well, I want the exact same kind of direct access anywhere with the internet.

I've already gotten an account with No-IP, so the dynamic IP problem is taken care of. I've also created an incoming VPN connection on my LAN server and a VPN connection on my laptop and the connection actually got connected, but the subnet mask is always 255.255.255.255 and I cannot access the LAN.

The solution I'm trying right now is to use Windows Server 2008 R2 gotten from DreamSpark and Microsoft ForeFront (actually its predecessor ISA Server which I got from an IT course I've taken) which amount other things is a VPN Server. However, there must be an easier solution than to use Enterprise grade software right?

By the way, I do know there are easier solutions like Dropbox, but I just want to know how to do it.

A:VPN client and server

You need to make sure that you've got your routing and remote access server role configured correctly. You should be receiving an IP that allows for browsing the network, although netbios doesn't always work easily depending on the network topology. A couple of simple issues I've encountered are things like trying the VPN from within the network (rarely works), connecting from a network with the same subnet as the one you're connecting to (having the internal network 192.168.1.x locally and the network being connected to having the same 192.168.1.x address range), and lastly having firewalls not play nicely. I don't think you're having that issue since you've received an IP, albeit one that has a restrictive subnet mask. Start by checking the routing and remote access configuration on the server to make sure it's handing out the correct information to remote clients.

A:SSH server and client on the same PC

Umm...that is not going to make anything more or less secure. SSH is for creating secure connections to remote systems. (Mainly for administrating) It creates a VPN in a way. It does not make your browser usage secure. Connecting to an SSH server on the local machine is pointless anyways. You are already on the local machine!

Hi guys, I'm pulling my hair out here trying to understand Winsock headers.

My lecturer must have a sick sense of humour as he's set us the task of writing a UDP client/server after only studying C++ for 2 months.

I've managed to get a server up and listening to a socket. I've got the client to send the message and the server to pick it up and print it to screen.

The remaining horrors are

1) Read the IP address of sender and print to screen... just reading to a vairiable is the bit I'm stuck at.

2) Echoing the message back to sender and reading it...I'm a bit lost on this - can this be done with a simple swap from a send to receive socket? And how does the server get the info to send to client - may be related to 1) above.

Any help you guys can give would be great.

I'm trying to use a VPN connection with a remote server. I need to extract data from a server that needs this connection for security purposes. The only way to run the software on this server is to use a terminal server client connection. I'm using WIN XP, but the server is running NT 4.0 Terminal Server edition. Once I open up the terminal server connection, the VPN connection will not connect. Now, reverse logic, if I open the VPN connection first, the terminal server client connection will not work.

They will not have email servers for each client progrem, but I suspect that you are talking about three different services there. On only one of them is your ISP acting as an email server. For the other two, your ISP is just providing connectivity to the internet, with the email servers being hosted by other organisations (goolgle for GMail and Microsoft for outlook.com).
 
Thunderbird is an email client program and may well be pointed at the ISPs email server, to collect email from the email account that comes bundled with the connection.
 
ISPs will frequently have many servers forming their email infrastructure, but apart from having different functions in the grand scheme of things, they the only split from a customer PoV will be between home user and business email.

Hello All,

I took over supporting a sm. business that has 7 workstations, 2 networked printers and 2 local printers. The bldg. has a DSL connection and the modem goes through a router. All the workstations and networked printers connect to a single 16 port switch which is connected to a server running MS SBS 2003 r2. My question is where should the internet connect to? If I connect it to the switch everyone has internet which is fine but shouldn't I connect it to a secondary NIC in the server instead? What services would I need to configure to allow that type of configuration? Oh BTW, the server is set as a DHCP, file server.
With the internet connected to the switch directly users are reporting slow response when accessing shared files on the server, etc.

Any comments are appreciated.
 

A:Client-Server Networking

If you don't need to control Internet access, the simpler configuration will just be to connect the router directly to the switch and let it be the DHCP server. Disable the DHCP server on the SBS server.

Hey all I have 6 workstations and one server and we’re having trouble keeping the workstations connected to the shared drives on our server. I think that it might be a DNS error but don’t know how to isolate it. Our network is configured as follows:

6 clients connecting to our router and 1 server also connected to our router and our router then is connected to our modem. The DNS on our server is set to be static with a preferred DNS of 127.x.x.x and nothing for the secondary. Our client machines are using the DNS provided to us by our ISP which is 68.x.x.x and a secondary of 68.x.x.x.

Now my question is should our server be using the ISP DNS settings or should the client machines be using the server DNS setting or should they all be using the same thing and if so how will that impact our connecting to our domain and or the internet?

Also you might be able to shed some light on the fact that our windows 2000 clients seem to be able to connect to our server much faster and more efficient than our WinXP boxes and don't lose connectivity. Do you know why that is?

Thanks in advance.

First i start a little of topic: thank you guy's for helping me on my last problem thanks.
but i have a new 1 for you
I'm trying to connect over VPN to a other pc there both on the same network so i try locally first it works.
After that i go trow my router i port mapped port 1723 TCP and UDP to the server and 500 and 50 and 51 and 47 all TCP and UDP after i did this is try connecting going to the outside.
And what happens then:
everything looks well at start than i get the “verifying username and password” screen then it just dies out slowly and pain fully.
Do i just miss a port or what ?
Anybody had this problem and fixed it ?
Thanks for reading my post.

This is an excerpt from a website.
"Currently Smartworks server runs only on Windows © Operating systems. Increasingly we are facing inquiries from our existing and potential customers to port Smartworks to other Operating systems. " I downloaded a trial version of this client server program and being a novice, don't fully understand the relationship. How much control do they have in my computer? What settings should I adjust in XP Prof to protect my computer and my data? What exactly is porting? And could someone answer my first post?

Porting is making an app in a differen't language so it will run in another OS. You should perhaps try posting this in their forum if they have one since they will be of more help because it's there app.

Is it not possible to make a program be both a client & server? I'm new to the winsock control & just finished reading PINO's basic intro. I did the peer-to-peer project for client/server chat. However, I want the program to be both a server & a client so two people don't have to worry about one being the server & one being the client.

I have the code for the program to listen. However, when I put the code for it to make a connection & click the button for that code, it states "invalid operation at current state".

So is it possible to have a program be both a client & server? I think it is and maybe it needs 2 winsock controls? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here you can find an example in C++: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/WSFileTransfer.aspx?df=100&forumid=288198&exp=0&select=1435288

If you want to run client and server from the same exe at the same time, you should use threads (or fork).

Hey there,

I am in an odd situation. I like to play Warrock, a free online multiplayer game, check it out btw. My lappy has 1 Wireless card, i use to connect to crappy router.

when router stalls i have to switch it off/on again, this causes my network adapter to get in "media disconnected state" which causes warrock to prompt me "No connectivity" and throw me out of the game.

So i though a good solution would be to create a VPN host on my XP pro. Then crate a VPN client and connect to the local VPN host. This part works well. This way I always have atleast 1 always-on connection so I can reset my router and when packets start getting through again my game will resume from same location. happy happy

also I enabled ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on the wireless connection so VPN host can forward packets to the Internet via it.

the problem is it doesn't work. while my VPN client is in connected mode i cannot access internet even via firefox. if you need to know metrics or other info following is dump for "netstat -r". Here the 10.15.8.1 is my static IP of my router. and 192.158.2.109 is dynamic on VPN client connection.

First the good news:

I have three computers on this network, 2 Win2k worksatations and a Win2k server. Also, there is a 4 port Linksys router between the cable modem and the rest of the computers.

All computers are running TCP/IP with Obtain IP address automatically enabled. All computers can access the Internet and the router sees all three computers. It has also assigned them internal IP addresses (192.168.1.100 /101 / 102).

From the server I can ping all three addresses and get positive results. I can also search for the computers and find them, albeit not the same way for both. A simple search shows one and I need to use the *.* to find the other.

Now the bad news:

Neither workstation sees the server, even with a ping. And when I go to the properties (right click My Computer/Network ID/ properties) I am not able to join to the domain. It says the Network Path is not valid. And yes, I've added the computers to my server.

What might I be missing? Help please

I have a client that is trying to share data from a server (server 2003) to workstations (XP home) at multiple remote locations through RDP. Remote Desktop will allow me to show drives from the local machines in the Remote Desktop session but I would like the server shares/drives to appear on the local machines. That is to say, I would like for the connecting local devices, drives feature of RD to work in the other direction. Anyone know of a way to do this? Thanks in advance

Our network has 27 PCs, all clients, hooked up to switches, a router and cable modem. Mostly WinXP, some Win98. Inter-office email is handled by MSMail, which is not supported under xp. When there is a fix for me to apply, it requires me to go to each station. That used to be okay when we had 10 PC's but we're headed for 30, and net admin is not my only title. I thought I'd ask for opinions. You can answer one or all of my questions...every opinion will be helpful.

1. At what number of nodes does a client-client network no longer function well?
2. What are some of the pros and cons of using a server-client network as opposed to client-client?
3. Do you think administering a server-client network is more or less time-consuming than client-client?
4. Do you know of a website or two where I can go to get more information on this subject?

Thank you for your time.

I currently have two machines, xp and me, set up as a workgroup
and connecting to the Internet via a router. I wanted to set up the network as a domain and use the xp as a server. My question is if anyone knows off the top of their head, any problems I am liable to encounter. Just wondering if its even worth the trouble, since what I have works OK, it just doesn't offer all the options that I am looking to play with.

XP can't be set up as a domain controller and does not control or maintain user accounts logins or other resources. you need a server to act as a domain controller not a workstation.

Hi all,
I am currently working on a project that is giving me trouble for quite some time now. Using c++ and VS2010 I wrote a client and server application that is TCP/IP based on a really basic level. The project idea is simple. A server sends some image data to
a client. (Later on to multiple clients) The amount of data may change depending on how fast the server can acquire images (e.g. webcam 30fps ~30 MB/s or more). By design the client/server connection must not be delayed sine all delayed data is immediately
thrown away. I know some of you will say "use UDP" but since it obviously should also work with TCP and I don't want to lose any packages at all I want to use TCP.
During server/client execution I now noticed some unexpected image freezes. Observing the process monitor's/task manager's I/O tab I noticed a 5 second delay during each of the freeze periods. These freezes are occurring randomly and I cannot reproduce them
at will. Here is a log print of the data rate per seconds.

Hi rhodanos,
Sorry for the confusion in my steps, for steps three, it can be also applied into the Windows Vista later. So you can try the command on Windows 7 for disabling SMBv2.
After that, please let me know the result.
Besides, I'm not familiar with the script, so I'm afraid I couldn't help you to check this.
Thanks for your understanding.

In our organization, we've got about 20 computers, 5 or 6 mobile users.
about a combined 40gb of data.

up until now we've been using a 3rd party online backup solution to keep the users documents and outlook data backed up. The more the data grows, the more the monthly price grows, and is becoming a budget problem.

We have 2 windows server 2003 standard machines, and I'm building a sandboxed environment replicating the current users connected to the domain, getting ready to test/debug/deploy windows server 2008 and some vista clients.

on the server 2003, I've tried setting up backup schedules with windows backup (ntbackup.exe) and its not doing what it's supposed to. Every time I set up a schedule, and wait for the right hour/30mins/10 mins whatever for the backup test, it doesn't work too well.

I need a cost effective solution to replace our online backup service.
It doesn't matter if we don't end up upgrading to windows server 2008/vista, I'm simply building a test environment to compare security and performance.

We have like I said..
about 20 desktops - XP SP3, Outlook 2003, and some documents, etc.
about 5 laptops - XP SP3, Outlook 2003/2007, documents etc..
1 production file/dns/dhcp server, Windows Server 2003 SP2

The outcome:

I'd like the server to be able to backup all users documents, outlook data, at regular intervals, so if the mobile users go out of the office for a few hours or couple days, the backup pro... Read more

A:Need help with Client/Server Backup Solutions

Issues here;
the program for backup and its technique to move the data,
sizing how much capacity you need for the storage,
protecting the data from prying eyes (ie encrypting it),
and the product or service for the storage (is it on or off site?)




all users documents, outlook dataClick to expand...

By all user documents to you mean explicitly the My Documents folder or the
entire user profile area \documents & settings\user-login-id\ ?
The User Profile is much bigger and the Application Data folder (eg mine @ ~ 400mb)
and the Local Settings (mine @ ~483mb) are sizable but certainly 'not critical user data'.
The exceptions are Outlook keeps the PST under Local Settings and Oultlook Express is there too.
Some third part stuff (eg Thunderbird email) is found under Application Data.

Personally, I use Allway Sync for replicating my data (but it's not encrypted).
The selectivity of files is excellent any it is fast due to duplicating only changed files.
As I use it in manual mode, I've not tried the scheduling feature which is available.
