comment How long does it take to see a renewed SSL certificate?
@week: Thanks for the link. I restarted Apache already actually, but it didn't help. But that link showed me how to use openssl to view the certificate being issued by Apache, and I verified that it is indeed the new cert, and that the expiration date is the new one. There's no proxy being used in this case though, so I'm still at a loss. Just so I understand, you're saying that after restarting Apache, all I should have to do is hit the web site again and then use the browser to view the new certificate?

Nope, not sure. :-) Just don't know where to uncache it. I tried clearing the cache in the browser but it didn't help. Wondering if it's more of a system thing. I'm on Win7 64-bit, btw.

comment Windows Live Messenger disconnects when accepting Remote Assistance request
Here's an update after several months. I bypassed the Netgear WNR3500L router (so the cable modem is connected directly via ethernet to my PC) and Remote Assistance finally works. As I mentioned before, configuring the router to disable SPI (Stateful Packet Inspection, also called NAT Filtering on the WAN Setup tab of my router) and setting my PC as the Default DMZ Server didn't help. I called Netgear but they had no other suggestions on things to reconfigure. May be time for a new router but not sure which one. Thanks for any other suggestions.

@Jeremy: tried disabling SPI but no luck. Thanks tho, I think you're on the right track. I'll see if I can get a different router, or bypass it completely and see if things are different.

Looking at the log file above, it seems like things start the disconnect process at time 10:23:36.24, when it calls CHotmailService::DisconnectAndCleanupInternal. Also, I'm not seeing any events at that time in any section of the Event Viewer.

@Bon: Yes, I've tried it with the firewall disabled on both machines, but no change. Remote Desktop works fine - I connected the same direction, from the requesting PC to the accepting PC. I agree, port forwarding shouldn't be necessary in this case since both are inside the router. Mystified. Thanks!

@Jeremy: Thanks, yes I did actually. I saved a log from just before I clicked Accept to just after. I didn't get much from looking at it, but you're welcome to take a look: chocolatesoftware.com/misc/MsnMsgr.txt

@Bon: I tried making my PC be the DMZ server, but no change. Thanks for the link, but since both PCs are inside my router, I think all the ports should be wide open, shouldn't they?
