Certificate Autoenroll from different subnet won't work by PatOs
Hi! Has anyone managed to get Autoenroll towards a 2003 CA server to work form a different subnet from the CA? When connected to the same subnet everything works fine, but if I'm on a different subnet, the request fails with an error stating the the RPC server is unavailable. Any thoughts?

Onecare Beta Release? by Leon Cutler
Has anyone heard of a release date for a vista ported version of Onecare Live? I am beginning to wonder if they may not know where to go with it since most of the better features have been included into vista itself. ~Leon

I have just installed build 5728 on a dual boot system (separate drives). In addition, I have installed Office 2007 Beta Refresh on both XP SP2 and Vista. Consequently, I would like to share a common PST file. This resides on my XP partition. With UAC turned on, I am blocked from accessing the common PST (permissions). With UAC turned off, I am able to access the file. Could anyone tell...

Does Vista firewall have holes? by Dark Knight
Currently evaluating Windows Vista RC1. Has anyone experienced any issues with Windows Vista firewall ports being detected as "closed" or "open" but not listed as "secure"? I ran several firewall port tests from various sites (ie: http://www.hackerwatch.org/probe/ ) and all listed the same open ports "Telnet 23" and "Web Proxy 8080". All other ports are listed as "Closed" which should...

IIS Virtual Server 2003 R2 remote desktop etc stopped working by Scanner2001

I then experience many network issues,...

Standard user has problems running Flash player by immune2snow
I've set up a "Standard user" account for my son, but he is not able to play his flash based game on it. The game works fine when IE is run as administrator. The game is on http://www.clubpenguin.com and uses Flash 9. I cannot find any indication as to what isn't working: there are no 'yellow bar' messages, event viewer messages, parental control logs. I've tried switching the firewall off...

Data leakage among users by Roof Fiddler
I installed Quicken on Vista, and ran it as one user, and then when I ran it as another user at the same time, quicken complained that it was already being run by another user. So Vista is leaking data among users, specifically, that other users are running particular programs. This is a security problem. A program running in one user account should have no way to know whether that same...

PCcillin vs Avast by ScottyDog55
Now that the compatability issues have been resolved, Avast is my choice of AV software. Trend was really affecting my IE performance, let alone the overall performance of my build 5728. even if I never have liked the avast "VCR" skin, I've been using it for a long time. I've tested most of the AV software out there for xp, and they all suck in some way or another. The best protection...

OneCare by ScottyDog55
OC will not install on Vista. Period. OCBeta will send previous beta testers a notice when OC becomes available for Vista. Please don't tell people to go ahead and use a product when it's not compatable, and Vista will not allow it to install anyway due to the compatability issues.

First, I turned off UAC and rebooted. Then I ran the install program in Compatibility mode for Windows XP SP2. It was also set it as run as Administrator. When the installation was complete I then rebooted. With the AVG virus program updated and running properly I enabled UAC again and rebooted. Now AVG is working and I have no compatibility warnings from Vista. When I originally tried...

BitLocker Recovery not working on Lenovo T60 by sandeep
I have been able to make BitLocker work with the TPM on a Lenovo Thinkpad T60. BUT I am running into problems when I try to do a BitLocker recovery. In order to test the recovery, I inactivated the TPM in the BIOS utility and as expected BitLocker prompts me for the recovery password. It seems to accept the password and seems like windows is booting but it crashes with a blue screen after a...

adminpak.msi for Vista? by
I want to upgrade my WinXP Pro to Vista RC1, but I tested in the lab and it removes the Admin tools. I have a 2000 AD. The only way I know to get AD admin tools (AD Users and computers, AD Sites/Services, etc.) is to actually set up Longhorn Server, the make it a DC, then use the tools installed to administer the other domain. Is there any other way?
