GPO Network Drive Mapping over DFS isn’t working

I experienced the problem that it didn’t map one network drive over GPO. I searched for a long time and found out the problem was that the GPO didn’t like the backslash at the end.





After that it worked like a charm;-)

SSH Socks Server doesn’t work

You created the right tunnel:
ssh –p 80 –D 6666

Note: I picked port 80 for my environment because it isn’t usually blocked by firewalls. So you can easily bypass them.

Finally you have pointed the proxy of your browser to the right tunnel but it still doesn’t work.

It took me a while to figure it out, but the solution was quite simple. You need to leave all proxy settings blank, except the socket setting. Now it works like a charm;-)

AntiVirus on Server

It can be a good a idea to have a different AntiVirus on the servers than on the desktops. So you have a layered scan.
