Remote Desktop Users can’t login on Windows server 2008

I gave users permissions to login to the Server but it still didn’t work. After trying out for a while I found out the solution.

Login to the Server as Admin:
1. gpedit.msc (Local Group Policy)
2.  Computer Configuration/Security Settings/Local Policies/User Rights Assignment
3. Allow log on trough Terminal Serives you need to add your group or users

Warning: This should normally not be done and could be a security risk!

Check if WSUS GPO is applied

The easiest way to find out if the group policy is applied and really changed the right settings you can check it in registry.

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

Add Second Network Card in VMWare

Today I had to add a second virtual network in VMWare. Unfortunately I didn’t find any option first. To do this you need to actually power off the VMWare Host. Then go the settings of the VMWare Host. Click on Add Ethernet Card and confirm everything. Startup OS again.

International Phone Calls

Skype-logo-groot Most people have installed Skype but they still don’t know that they actually can call land- and mobile phones. It is even possible to send SMS and Fax over it.
If you use it a lot I would recommend you to get a headset. It is much more convenient to make phone calls over it and the quality is also much better. Now the biggest advantage you get when you make international phone calls. I subscribed to a plan which is around $10 per month and this always you to call international land phones for free. If you should call just for one foreign country you can sign up for a $5 plan. By the way you cancel it any time and you can even get a phone number so people can call you back.       

So check it out:

comparison Social networks

And the winner is?


I think most people won’t be surprised that it is Facebook. Myspace is starting to loose users now and many of them you will find in Facebook again. Myspace is more open and used by artists and musicians who are looking for a platform to promote themselves. In the other hand Facebook is used by more individuals or private users who want to keep in touch. Facebook really did a couple of smart moves like one of supporting an API so that developer can build applications and integrate it into the platform. The design can be seen as a little bit boring because there are not many adjustments possible in the current version. Myspace instead can be ‘pimped’ but it is most of the time just overloaded.
