NT 4.0 MCSEs gets to keep certification

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAccording to rumours all over the place, wingeeks certified as MCSE on NT 4.0 will keep their certifications forever. Instead of dumping this MCSE certification on new years day 2002, it will be renamed "MCSE on Windows NT 4.0" and be valid for the holders lifetime. Other MCSE certifications will be renamed accordingly; "MCSE on Windows 2000" and so on.

Seems Bill and Steve finally crumpled from the pressure and separated the customers technology skills from its own upgrade and marketing plans.

Keep an eye on Microsoft Training & Services for the official news. If it ever happens.

Paid-for popups

  View Printable Version 
WindowsThis week, Microsoft will release the first of their .NET Services, and it's something called .NET Alerts. Digging through the hype, it's little popups you have to pay for and install yourself. How long until we in reality start paying to see advertising?

WinInformant has it all.

Microsoft tightens security

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAfter being bashed into an unrecognizable mess over the last few months, the Redmond Circus promises to clean up their act and deliver IIS6 and other things in a default locked down configuration. In addition, a new crop of security tools will appear on the Windows Update web site, and an online security tool. Gartner Group released a recommendation earlier that called for all Microsoft IIS-servers to be replaced. Read the whole thing on Wired.

HFNetChk - windows security tool

  View Printable Version 
WindowsStaying up to date on Windows security patches can be a royal pain. Just as important is knowing what patches you already have on all of your systems. I have already mentioned this tool in the (long) security article Patching and securing IIS4. The tool refers to an XML database (online?) in order to tell you the patches that are available for the following:

  • Windows NT 4.0
  • Windows 2000
  • All system services, including Internet Information Server 4.0 and 5.0
  • SQL Server 7.0 and 2000 (including Microsoft Data Engine)
  • Internet Explorer 5.01 and later
HFNetChk was created by Shavlik Technologies together with Microsoft. Details and download locations are available in Q303215.

Win2k: one laptop, several networks

  View Printable Version 
WindowsAre you using a laptop (with Win2k) on several networks? And only some of them have a dhcp server? Then you should know about 'netsh'. With a command like netsh interface ip set address "LAN" static ip- address netmask gateway metric, you can set the tcp/ip parameters on the interface named "LAN". Difficult, you say? Just put it in a .bat file then. Check out Knowledge Base-article Q242468 for everything about netsh.

Win2k disaster recovery

  View Printable Version 
WindowsDisasters never happen. No, really.
But because you occasionally need to take time off your favourite online frag-fest and read up on matters that matter (or not), you need something to read. And you need to read Windows 2000 Magazine's Disaster Recovery Reference list.

Now go and be a good boy.
