  1. Deny IPs to only the website? Does it deny IPs for SMTP traffic?
  2. Is the IP Blocker option for everything (DNS, Email, Website, etc.) or does it only apply to the Website? If only for the Website, do we have any options for blocking IP ranges completely? e.g. If I do not want to see any traffic coming from specific IP ranges (aka evil countries). Thanks.
  3. I'm going back and forth with support, I'm not sure he understands the problem.
  4. The URIBL_BLOCKED option in my SpamAssassin says: "ADMINISTRATOR NOTICE: The query to URIBL was blocked." Is this something that TCH can resolve? Should I submit a support ticket? So much spam gets through, and this rule -- if working -- would help greatly. Thanks!
  5. Thanks for the idea, guys. I found the solution. my($v1, $v2) = $string =~ m|($regex)(.+)|; I have input the syntax in my script and it works great. Man, I love Perl. There's never an end to the features.
  6. Let's assume this is what I'm working with... $string = 'xxxxxxxxyyyy'; $regex = 'xxxxxxxx'; And my goal is to have the following results... $value1 = 'xxxxxxxx'; $value2 = 'yyyy'; (Remainder after $regex) What commands am I using to get to that point? I have used regex to remove and/or alter text, but I have never used them to split apart a string. I can hack around to get a result, but I prefer to do it as 'properly' as possible and minimizing lines and execution cycles.
  7. Don't give Linksys any credit because they were acquired by Cisco. We bought some Linksys PoE switches (cheap!) and they were not good. We took the hit and bought some Cisco switches and threw them away...
  8. Has anyone used this IPSec VPN client? How is it? I'm only familiar with the Cisco VPN (works great). Linksys has a 4-port Gigabit VPN device for ~$125 that would work perfect at my house, but if the VPN client sucks it's not going to be worth it.
  9. Yeah, I'm definitely going to submit the request now. It is becoming an increasingly more important topic.
  10. Assuming I've got a backup MX service to use, is there a way to configure my domain(s) to use the service? Or do I need to take control of my DNS in order to manage the MX entries?
  11. I'm noticing that many of the spams are getting a really low SA ranking. SA definitely needs to update their rules. For now I'm filtering my email through my pobox.com account, they've got a great spam catching setup.
  12. Somewhere in the 20-25 range. Most are aliases for my primary few domains.
  13. I am getting a much higher level of spam bypassing SpamAssassin lately. I am also using 4, because anything less and I start catching legit emails. I hope it slows down soon, or I'm going to have to see what else I can do.
  14. Why is the "upgrade" feature no longer available via cPanel? For several versions in the past, it worked fine, why not now? It made upgrade maintenance so much easier, in my opinion.
  15. Co-workers workstation is clearly infected with something. While running Firefix, he will get pop-ups from IE windows. AVG, Ad-Aware, Stinger, CWShredder and HijackThis were not able to turn up anything. Any suggestions on what apps I can run to maybe turn up the problem? I'm not a pro, but I know that every running service on his PC is something I have seen under normal operation on all other PCs. But the svchost.exe processes, I guess I never really know what all of them are actually doing... one of them maybe is hijacked.
  16. Is anyone running Fedora 5 yet? How's the Xen working out? Currently working on downloading it, but the mirrors are slow. (It's probably a pretty popular download right now.) Can I run Windows under Xen? Or is it only for Linux flavors?
  17. The motheboard on my Windows workstation croaked. So my Linux hardware will migrate to Windows and I'm going to need to upgrade my Linux workstation/server. The question... AMD Athlon 64 vs Intel P4 EM64T I have been using AMD processors for years, namely because I was alway supporting the underdog. These days I'm worried less about that and more about who gives me a better product. Is there a clear winner? I'm not shopping dual core or server based processors. Basically just wanting a good desktop 64-bit processor. If the race stays close, I will probably stick with AMDs. Thanks!
  18. I think his problem is that he needs to require membership to post. I believe his board is open for ANYONE to post, which is dangerous! You ban one IP address, they will come back on a 2nd. Guaranteed.
  19. I backup daily (incrementals) to a third party hard drive. Every month or two I will burn the data to a few DVDs to sock away and now that I will not lose more than that...
  20. Am I the only one who's getting scared of Google?
  21. Google for "Forgot your NT password?" (no quotes)...
  22. I have a theoretical question with regards to phpBB versions. Let's say my Cpanel phpBB version is 2.0.18 and I manually perform a patched upgrade to 2.0.19 to keep up-to-date with security, bug fixes, etc. Down the road, the Cpanal phpBB is upgraded to 2.0.20 (I forget to manually patch/upgrade). Will the Cpanel method of upgrading my phpBB still work? I worry that "manually" doing anything could break the process which Cpanel will use to upgrade later... but maybe there's no issue with this at all, but I'd like someone to tell me it'll work fine.
  23. Hotlink Protection is a great feature. Enable it, enter any sites you might reference your own images from, and you're golden.
  24. I created a trouble ticket and was told everything is setup correct. The vast majority of the spams getting through are the "Pharmacy" emails with "Pharmacy" misspelled in various ways. Is there a nice regex that could catch "Pharmacy" with a space in any given spot in the word? That might help...
  25. Beginning once the move was made from Server77 to Server377 it appears that there's a BUNCH of spam that gets through the SpamAssassin filters. I double checked that I'm configured the same way. I would very rarely get any junk mail on Server77 (except in my spam box) but I'm getting a TON of junk mail that gets through the SpamAssassin filters on Server377. Is something different on this new server? If we were talking one or two, no problem, but I'm getting a LOT of them.
