Why not say "Hello!"
« on: December 21, 2009, 12:02:55 AM »
It's alright... nobody here will bite at you... nobody here will SPAM you and I'm hopeful that nobody here will flame you!

Why not drop a line in this thread, if nothing else to say "Hello!"

In the two short years that I've had my blog running I've met a lot of great people from all over the world, quiet literally. The disk space is plenty so feel free to chime in.

If you have suggestions or comments please feel free to make those too!

Cheers!

Hello there everyone

Just recently found this site and hoping to learn some new things and perhaps share a few ideas of my own. The information on Michael's blog is great stuff especially the examples and links to the Nortel documents.

Looking forward to chatting it up with everyone.

Peace!

Hi all. I'm new here. From what I can tell, these forums just opened very recently. I'm liking what I've seen so far. I've never been big into posting on forums but I do participate on the technet forums occasionally, experts exchange and I used to be very active on AntiOnline.

I work for a medium sized company where I have the official title of "Network and Security Admin". However, I do just about everything else. Cisco/SonicWall Firewalls, BlueCoat SG Proxy, Barracuda Spam Firewall, Exchange 2010, Sharepoint, Windows Server 2003-2008 with Active Directory DS 2008 (whoo hoo Group Policy!). System Center Config Manager 2007, SQL/MySQL, etc. etc. I'm proficient with Linux with SuSE and Backtrack (Ubuntu) as my distros of choice. I support the switches for our Nortel VoIP solution but that is primarily taken care of by someone else.

Anyway, recently I've been really big into System Center Config Mgr, Group Policy and network monitoring.

I'd love to have a place to discuss various network monitoring solutions such as Icinga (Nagios fork), Cacti, NetDisco, NetDot, RackTables, Ossec and anything else along those lines. I'd be interested in seeing what everyone else uses and possibly integrating some of those ideas into my setup. I don't have much money to put into Solarwinds or etc. solutions which is why I've always leaned towards the Open Source stuff.

Welcome modestgeek!

As you mentioned we have a lot in common... I've also played with at least half the open source solutions you mentioned above.

Hi Vali and welcome to the forums.

I've have yet to have the opportunity to work with any Hughes solutions, are they just into satellite communications?

Cheers!

Thanks guys for warm welcome.
@offtopic : I didn't work with their satellite solutions (yet) but with wireless point to point and point to multipoint in LMDS technology.

Having spent sometime in the switch forum I thought I would stumble into general so hello to all!

Hi Folks ,  I have been working on ERS 8600 technology for a while and now I am to work on MERS 8600 technology. Does anybody have any good explanation or documents to forward me regarding how UNI's and TDI's and SVLANs all work. Looking for a 101 type explanation to start with to get myself grounded on this... thanks everyone, amazing site !
