As you can see, I changed the layout of the weblog including color of background, the archive file naming standard, the location of article context and more. The main changes and the ways to change are:

  • Individual archive name : put the following line to weblog config->archiving->Archive File Template (Individual):
    <$MTArchiveDate format="%Y/%m/%d"$>/<$MTEntryTitle dirify="1"$>.html
  • Directory by category : add following line to weblog config->archiving->Archive File Template (category) as above:
    categories/<$MTArchiveCategory dirify="1"$>/index.html
  • Big calendar for monthly archive : create a new template for monthly archive, following lines are the key code for the calendar:
    <div class="largecalendar">
    <table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" summary="Monthly calendar with links to each day’s posts">
    <caption><span class="prevmonth"><MTArchivePrevious><a href="<$MTArchiveLink$>" title="<$MTArchiveTitle$>">&lt;&lt;</a></MTArchivePrevious></span>
    <$MTEntryDate format="%B %Y"$>
    <span class="nextmonth"><MTArchiveNext><a href="<$MTArchiveLink$>" title="<$MTArchiveTitle$>">&gt;&gt;</a></MTArchiveNext></span>
    <th class="sun">Sunday</th>

Monitoring Network Protocol Security

Headache today, the cold wasn’t recovered.

When the network appears to be running smoothly, you might be tempted to kick off your shoes, put your feet on the desk, lace your hands behind your neck, and breathe a deep sigh of relief.

What I learned today:

  • IPSec
  • filter->filter list->rule(only one action)->policy(several rules)
  • the way how IPSec works, detail of Main Mode and Quick Mode negotiations
  • command line tools netsh.exe, netdiag.exe and netcap.exe
  • IP Security Monitor and both modes’ statistics
  • Kerberos basic
  • GUI kerbtray.exe and command klist.exe to display and purge the tickets

Here is some useful tools and links:

Security, security, security…

It is a very good day, today. I feel much better and the feeling is that RECOVERED. Even I already used VPN for almost two years, but I didn’t fully understand it. I studied VPN at morning and found it is so easy, later on I read IAS and RADIUS. All the three issues are easy to be controlled. After that, I started a new chapter, and then I read thousands of the word “security”. Security is the most important thing not only for the computer system but also for the social system. Especially for our office, the word security is always an issue; once I joined the office and got the current job I know what the security means.
The security issues I read this afternoon include:

  • Network security protocols about authentication, authorization, confidentiality, integrity and nonrepudiation
  • Security templates section talks where the default templates are, what the templates covers
  • The principle of least privilege means that no employee and no user of information system, includes system administrators and IT workers, has more privileges or access to information and resources than they need to do their job.
  • Security Templates console to create new folder for copying/modifying templates
  • Security Configuration and Analysis console to apply and compare templates

Also, here is some free document from Microsoft cover the security:

Keep reading

I am getting better and better even I am still coughing sometime, but it’s not as bad as several days before or maybe I am already used to it. Anyway, I keep reading the book of MCSA/MCSE 70-291, today I learned Packet Filters, the concept is very easy that just set some holes on the firewall-sounds like a security problem, but you can’t do anything without these holes. Later on, I read Remote Access Connections and Remote Access Policies included the issues of authentication, encryption and authorization.

Off the Record Internet service providers use the Assign A Static IP Address feature to provide customers with a reserved IP address at an extra cost. Now that you know how easy a reserved IP address is to configure, don’t let your ISP charge you an exorbitant fee for one!

Routing and remote access

Coughing is the disease I hate most as well as Sam hates runny, I am getting better after three days stayed at home included one day sick leave. Today, I read three lessons about the Route and Remote Access issues as below:

  • Demand-Dial Routing
  • NAT
  • Routing Protocols includes RIP/OSPF/DHCP Relay Agent

I can’t finish the exercise well since I only have one telephone line instead of two lines as requested. Today, my reading quality is considered OK, much better than last week.

Pure text console Microsoft Windows — an imagination

I didn’t write the note for three days because my physical condition is getting worse. Ok, it’s better now. In the past three days, I still had problem to concentrate so the reading speed was slow. I just finished DHCP part and learned some software routing issues. I hope I will recover at next week.
I had a dinner with David Yang, Jerry Lee, Huang Chao and Ben Luo the day before yesterday. We talked some computer issues and we imaged that pure text console Microsoft Windows. Personally, I hope and believe there is going to be such an operating system.

Journey to MCSA/MCSE IV

Today, the physical condition is not so good. I felt angina when I got up and keep coughing all the day. I can’t concentrate this afternoon, so I decided to stop today’s reading. Today, I didn’t learn a lot, just several issues of the DHCP:

  • start/stop/resume/disable DHCP server
  • netsh command line
  • superscope/multinets
  • backup/restore DHCP server
  • user classes
  • ipconfig /setclassid command
  • DHCP/DNS dynamic update and security issue
  • DHCP initial lease process

Also, I surfed some MCSE related websites (Chinese) and got some feeling of the certify examination. These websites are:

Journey to MCSA/MCSE III

Today, I finished reading the DNS part and did some practice on the command nslookup and the DNS log dns.log file. The issues I learned include:

  • Replication Monitor, installed by Windows Support Tools and launched by replmon
  • Performance Console, counters
Off the Record: Most performance counters in System Monitor are used only rarely. Despite this, there is a running joke among network administrators that System Monitor is the most essential of all administrative tools. This is because, when left running with its real-time graphs prominently displayed for all to see, it never fails to give your boss the impression that you are busy at work.

I also read the basic of DHCP include how to installed DHCP server and how to do basic configuration of a DHCP server. Nothing new for me, it was just a review.

Journey to MCSA/MCSE – I

I decided to get a MCSA/MCSE at the beginning for March because that I had nothing to do. I finished my MBA program in last November and went through the degree assignment at early February. After that, I learned several days Tcl/Tk and eventually I found it is such an easy language without challenge to me. OK, I went back to Perl and implemented to Movable Type weblog. Once I successfully installed and configured it well and learned the template tag language, I became free again.
I had to find something to do, otherwise I would just sit in the office and watch the screen – not the content on the screen but just the screen frame. Fortunately, I remembered that I do not have any Microsoft certified/proved experiences. I decided to learn Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and get a MCSA/MCSE certification. The book was shipped by amazon.com, and I already finished reading (just reading, without going through the examination) the first 70-290 Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server 2003 Environment . Today, I decide to put the reading note on my weblog. The idea is that I learned from a personal weblog in which is the owner’s diary of his experience for applying the graduate school.
The book I am currently reading is the second one, 70-291 Implementing, Managing, and maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network Infrastructure. The only feeling I have right now is that Microsoft is trying to make easy things difficult. Such as DNS, it is very easy under Linux and what an administrator needs to do is that modify a text file. Even though you can do the same under Windows, firstly it is not recommended and secondly you have to COPY that text file FROM a BIND (Unix/Linux) server.
Any way, I am reading and will keep reading (I hope) the books and apply the examination. Which is my personal mission in 2004.

RSS Reader

As the popping of blog, the RSS reader also becomes more and more poplar. RSS reader is some kind of a news collector which retrieves the XML formatted news/blog announcement as well as the summary of the article.
Suppose you have several favorite blogs and want to keep watching their updating, RSS is the solution for you. You can easily use the URL of the RSS/RDF/XML provided by the owner of the blog, normally the RSS/RDF/XML will be generated by the system itself. What you need to do is just use RSS reader and create a new channel, copy the URL into the channel’s properties. The RSS reader will do the rest for you.
From my experience, Newz Crawler is the best standalone RSS reader which support Chinese well. If you want to use Internet browser oriented/embedded reader, Pluck! Is the best for Internet Explorer and urss is the best for Netscape. I use these three together for different purpose.
The channel information of the is blog is: http://blog.yuleshow.com/index.xml

Journey to MCSA/MCSE – II

I keep reading almost the entire workday, until 15:45 pm. Today, I learned:

  • zone delegation, useful and easy item.
  • stub Zone, I didn’t find any advantage of this function yet.
  • nslookup, a command which I am already familiar since it is a core command under Linux.


I am thinking to get a DSLR for a longtime, especially when I saw Mixview’s Nikon D100 with that famous L-lens. But it is a big jump for me to throw away the current NOT BAD Sony F707 digital camera. Any way, eventually I will have a DSLR so I do some research first.
Most of the reviews say that the Nikon D70 is better than Canon 300D, and even better than Nikon D100 except the plastic body instead of metal body.

The most interest thing is that some geeks cannibalize a $499 4GB Hitachi Microdrive from a $249 Creative Nomad MuVo2 MP3 player or similar price iPOD Mini MP3 player.
If you are interested in such cannibalization, here is the reference: studio2f Hitachi MicroDrive removal: Creative Nomad Muvo2
