comment Is it possible to setup Enigmail for Thunderbird, so that signatures are sent as attachments?
BTW another possible explanation for the downvote is a misplaced spam / offensive flag. If that's the case, it'll be invalidated when some moderator reviews it. ;)

Well we're mostly catering security professionals on Information Security as per our About and Help center, and configuration problems tend to be more in the domain of end users, so those are mostly migrated to Super User where end users are more likely to search for answers. Either case, migration on itself is not a problem, it's just house chores. Personally, I don't see the point in downvoting questions that are off-topic. Perhaps for failing other requirements (e.g. specificity, prior research,...) but IMO off-topic != bad on itself.

No idea about the downvote. Maybe it was meant to be cast on the question, since it's a configuration question, and as such possibly a better fit for Super User? :O Anyway, there's no rep change for you since you started with 1 rep point (but the downvoter gets a -1 LOL). Voting to migrate the question. If question OP is reading this, please don't cross-post, it'll be migrated for you if other reviewers agree.

And the SmarterMail documentation doesn't provide any clues on how you're supposed to proceed?

comment can't access my internet?.but it shows connected
It's quite possible that you've exceeded maximum connection limit of your operating system while you're running your torrent client, so the OS can't establish any more connections it needs to query DNS servers and do the other things via TCP/IP, like handling HTTP requests. Check your torrent client settings and limit the number of concurrent connections to something more reasonable, and see if that helped. You might also limit the bandwidth used by it while you're there, and reserve some for other tasks, like browsing the internet pages. And yes, this is off-topic on Information Security.

This question does not appear to be about Information security within the scope defined in the help center.

comment Did my computer unlock itself?
@techie007 I believe the only way to set up such a cron job is by using at.exe and it's impossible to schedule it via GUI since the login attempt will fail. See this technet post on how to schedule it. ;)

comment Did my computer unlock itself?
Scheduled task set with permissions of a SYSTEM user could log in, do its job, and depending on settings in the task scheduler or the application it was meant to run, leave the desktop unlocked once it's done. Check your task scheduler and look at when individual items there were run.

comment Writing a web app to pickup video stream from network camera
This is not really a question about Information Security, so I'm voting to migrate it to Super User for you. In short though, there's plenty of software packages that can do this for you, some are even free, at least for a limited number of concurrent webcam streams. Product recommendation is off-topic throughout Stack Exchange though, so you'll have to find your own packages and add your selection to your question, so answerers can help you out in setting them up. Alternatively, download your software package from the manufacturer's page, if you can't read it off the CD, or isn't updated to support your OS better.

Sorry, didn't see you posted nearly identical answer before I posted mine. If you want, you can reuse the screen grab from my post in yours. ;)

comment Use proxy for remote connection
This question is about configuration and troubleshooting of software to support various network protocols and is as such off-topic here. It is however on-topic on Super User, where I've voted to migrate it. Please, don't cross-post your question to other Stack Exchange websites, it will be migrated automatically. Also take the time to familiarize yourself with what's considered on-topic on Information Security by referring to our FAQ and How to Ask pages. Thanks!

comment Will setting the processor affinity for Pyrit improve the rate at which it cracks a wireless key?
This would be faster to test than to write two sentences to answer it.The question is about assigning (or in fact removing) processor cores to a process that is highly parallelized, something we could spend hours on discussing and applying theory to an unknown configuration, or you could test it in under 2 minutes. This same could go for any such process and isn't exclusive to pre-computing hashes using Pyrit. For what it's worth, it will work a lot better on CUDA/OpenGL enabled GPU cores than CPU cores anyway, see the graphs on this Pyrit page for example.

comment If my router has a MAC filter, does that mean that a laptop with its wireless address registered cannot connect via Ethernet?
Welcome to IT Security! Unfortunately, I don't see how your question is security related and is as such (unless you care to clarify why you think that it is) off-topic. I'm thereof voting to migrate it to Super User, where it should be on-topic and is hopefully not a duplicate of an already existing question. Please take the time to read FAQ, About and How to Ask pages for information on what questions are on-topic here. It would be also great, if you could provide more information on your setup, as it seems this is a workaround to a problem of a specific router.

comment Unknown port : Asterix port 8600?
OK, so it appears we've managed to unintentionally hack Stack Exchange voting system. Your answer shows two upvotes, of which one is from me when the answer was still at Information Security, and the other one also from me, after it was moved here. Told you that you'll get the fancy Super User icon in your flair! :P Before you ask, neah I don't have moral problems with it, OP didn't register with this site and can't accept your answer, so this just balances things out. ;)

comment Unknown port : Asterix port 8600?
Why are you suggesting the use of -k (SIGKILL)? Wouldn't then be better to also include -i -v to make it interactive and verbose, so OP can decide whether to send the SIGKILL signal to processes using port 8600 and terminate them? Don't you think it's a bit of an overkill for process identification purposes? Just curious, maybe I forgot about something...
