Set Ip Server 2012 PowerShell

To set a static IP address In Windows PowerShell, run Get-NetIPInterface. Make a note of the number shown in the IfIndex column of the output for your IP interface or the InterfaceDescription string.

PingMonitor is down

Heartbleed Bug gave us a lot of hassle these days, creating patches all around, including my favorite pfsense. First released patch 2.1.1 was quickly replaced by 2.1.2, unfortunately leaving me with mad apinger (aka Ping Monitor). Even disabled it was spitting log entries every 5 minutes, significantly degrading pfsense performance. The only solution found by me was to reinstall dns package (I’ve reinstalled all packages, however the dns fixed the issue). After that disabled apinger remains off, no more fake log entries and my box performance was reclaimed back! Check the screenshot if interested what packages I have installed, hardware, etc.

Today I tried a skype call on my truthful AAO which recently got mint 16 and I was frustrated by the sound crackling/distortion. It’s not just a problem with Skype, I believe it’s a problem with, you’ve guessed it, PulseAudio. Workaround? Indeed there is. Disabling PulseAudio’s Glitch Free Audio seems to have solved the crackling for me. To do this, edit the /etc/pulse/ file in your favourite text editor. Search for the following line: load-module module-hal-detect and append “tsched=0” to the end: load-module module-hal-detect tsched=0 restart pulse (or just reboot your system), and the crackling should be gone. Not sure what the side effects are by disabling Glitch Free Audio, but I can’t seem to… Read More »Skype/pulseaudio fix Mint 16
