Do you have a broadcast license for the music you're going to be streaming?

comment Can I find out if my employer is snooping on me?
1. Of course they can. 2. Assume that they are. 3. Monitoring of your computer usage by the entity that owns and provides said computer (and supporting infrastructure) isn't classified as a threat, as you seem to be alluding to in your question.

comment Resolving DNS subdomains
No it won't. DNS clients need to know to ask your server. That isn't automatic. For a public DNS zone you need to register your DNS server(s) with your domain name registrar. For a private domain you need to configure your clients to use your DNS server for DNS.

comment Resolving DNS subdomains
1. Only if you create a zone in the DNS server for somedomain.com AND 2. Only for the clients that query that DNS server for somedomain.com.

comment Captioning Phone- Ethernet Splitter or Switch
1. Any SOHO switch will do. Google it. 2. You don't "switch" a switch. You plug the switch into the network jack in the wall and then plug your network devices into the switch. That's it. Just make sure not to connect two switch ports together.

comment Why does our Netgear FS105 Port Splitter no longer work at our new apartment?
Start by using the correct terminology. That's not a port splitter, it's a network switch. A "port splitter" and a switch are decidedly very different things.

comment Installing Windows 7 to replace Windows 8: What to keep in mind?
Q: How do I ensure that the hardware supports Windows 7? A: Technically, you can't do anything to ensure that the hardware supports Windows 7. If it doesn't support Windows 7 then it doesn't support Windows 7. You can't make it support Windows 7 if it doesn't. What you should do is to go to the HP web site and check for Windows 7 drivers for that model and download them if they're available.

comment Linux can see the hostname, but Windows can't see it
You'll also need to set up a DHCP server so that you can set the DNS suffix for all of the clients automatically via DHCP. Configure the DNS server setting in your DHCP scope option to assign the ip address of the BIND server as the DNS server. All of the clients should be configured to get their ip configuration from DHCP.

You can't upgrade from 32bit to 64bit. You need to do a clean install.

comment Windows 7 loses network drive mappings on log-off
I do not have the "Reconnect at Logon" box checked when mapping these drives. - Well there you have it. If you want the drive mappings to persist across a logoff and/or reboot then check this box.

comment Hard Drive configuration
I am under the impression that having the OS stored on one drive, and personal files on other drives is the best way to maximize performance - I think that's entirely subjective. I'd be interested in seeing emperical data that shows this to be true.

comment How to troubleshoot a previous Exchange 2010 error with emails?
Sounds like back pressure. How much free space (as a percentage) is available on the drives that hold the mailbox database(s) and transaction logs?

comment Point To Point Link when connected into the main switch
I don't understand, are the clients accessing the DC through a different connection? Are they accessing the DC through the point to point link or not?
