I code for fun, mostly self taught, both high and low level. Also self taught in various aspects of information security. Love the puzzles.

comment File corruption after copying files in Windows 7 64 bit using two methods
On Unix systems there is a tool called rsync that can copy just changes to files there are ways to run it in windows however it is a command line tool with a lot of options that need to be got right. You might find it useful.

comment File corruption after copying files in Windows 7 64 bit using two methods
It shouldn't hmm and the disk has never experienced a major shock? I can't remember the exact options at the moment and I'm not using Windows to look it up either. Also corruption can happen in between reading the file and writing it elsewhere. Is this basically to move the files on a single disk or between 2 disks?

comment Remote WOL over internet
Finally, routers tend to not allow this sort of thing as if it's not handled properly, the same technique can be used to pull off a kind of DDoS attack called a smurf attack against such a network.

Basically you need to get the final router to convert it to broadcast packet which aren't usually routed across subnets (for very good reason)

comment Remote WOL over internet
Ok, you need to be able to forward UDP port 9 to the subnet broadcast address, then to wake you send a UDP packet to port 9 of the routers public IP containing 6 bytes of FF and then 16 repeats of the MAC address of the computer you want to wake.

You are not going to manage what you want without some major data moving which the tools built into windows don't do.

comment Can't block a specific application in Windows 7 Firewall
In the case of avast, it proxies all connections when the shields are enabled. This makes it appear to to the firewall that the data is all coming from avastsvc.exe on anything but the loopback interface which is implicitly trusted.

comment How can I trap errors for an application that is tightly coupled with IIS?
getting memory dump on crash is easy, doing anything with it without the code to be able to match memory locations to variable, method, class, function... names is the real problem. Visual studio has an on demand debugger that kicks in when windows detects a crash, but without debugging symbols or source code it's not often very useful.
