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>
    <th class="mon">Monday</th>
    <th class="tue">Tuesday</th>
    <th class="wed">Wednesday</th>
    <th class="thu">Thursday</th>
    <th class="fri">Friday</th>
    <th class="sat">Saturday</th>
    <MTCalendar month="this">
    <td class="d<$MTCalendarCellNumber$>">
    <a class="daytitle" href="<MTEntries lastn="1"><$MTEntryLink$></MTEntries>"><$MTCalendarDay$></a>
    <MTEntries lastn="1">
    <li class="first"><a href="<$MTEntryLink$>"><$MTEntryTitle$></a></li>
    <MTEntries lastn="999" offset="1">
    <li><a href="<$MTEntryLink$>"><$MTEntryTitle$></a></li>
    <div class="daytitle"><$MTCalendarDay$></div>
    </div> <!--calendar-->


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.
