Collection of useful, relevant or inane places on the the Internets for 18th Sep:
- evilrouters.net » Blog Archive » Yet another reason to hate HP – Jeremy explains why HP switches don't work well. He has consistently blogged about his problems with HP ProCurve for the last year, and twittered about his daily problems. ??He is right. HP is talking a good game, but the delivery isn't there. By all means use HP for Layer2, but don't use their routing gear. It's really ordinary.
- Bluecoat Knowledge Base IE8 does not match IP addresses in PAC file – Apparently IE8 doesn't handle explicit proxy auto-configuration syntax correctly. If you use " if (isInNet(host, "10.10.10.0", "255.255.255.0"))" in your PAC file, then you are fresh out of luck because the Borg is stupid.
Microsoft, FAIL, again.
- Have you seen my Router ID? – CCIE Blog – If you haven't seen this you should go look. It's a brilliant exercise in double thinking the problem. ??FWIW, this is similar to what a Network Architect does all day. Thinking up different ways to make the tools fit the job. Although I don't normally care much aobut RouterID, I do care about different ways to do the same thing.
- Cisco Support Community: Copying IOS images using HTTP/FTP – I am so used to using FTP or TFTP that I never looked the copy command and actually, mentally, understood that you could load the file over HTTP; even though i have seen it at the command line a million times.
I'm feeling old now.
