The remote session was disconnected because there are no Remote Desktop License Servers available to provide a license

It could be that a session was left connected. If thats the case I’ll try using the admin console command and see if I can get connected with it.

On you local computer, go to Start -> Run then paste this and hit enter

mstsc.exe /admin

It’ll prompt for IP and then user/pass. It looks like it opens Remote Desktop Connection, but really its the “admin console”

Cisco IPSec VPN Client is not supported on Windows 8 or Windows 10 and Error 27850

Cisco IPSec VPN Client is not supported on Windows 8 or Windows 10 unless you do a registry key edit.

Cisco VPN client (5.0.07.0440 for x64, 5.0.07.0410 for x86) is working for some people. But for that
you need to apply a small Registry workaround as below.

1. Open Registry editor regedit in Run prompt
2. Browse to the Registry Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CVirtA
3. Select the Display Name to modify, and remove the leading characters from the value data value as shown below,

For x86 machine,

"@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter” 

Change to to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter”

For x64 machine,

"@oem8.inf,%CVirtA_Desc%;Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows” 

Change to to “Cisco Systems VPN Adapter for 64-bit Windows”

Then try the connection. If you get the following error:

Error: Secure VPN connection terminated by Peer. Reason 433 (Reason not specified by peer)

Perform the following:

  1. Remove the Cisco VPN client and any other VPN clients
  2. Install SonicWall VPN found here.
  3. Install Cisco VPN 5.0.07.0440 found here. You will need to extract the .exe to a folder, then run the .MSI installer found inside the archive.
  4. Apply the above Windows registry fix if you receive the error for enabling the adapter.
  5. Re-import your .pcf

That’s it! The SonicWall VPN client installs the DNE LightWeight Filter required for the Cisco client to work on Windows 10. You should now be able to connect without any peer errors and return to your everyday scheduled programming.

How to restore default permissions on a domain

How to restore default permissions on a domain?

In Parallels Plesk Panel (PP), go to the Domains page, mark the required domains, and click on the Check permissions button. Then uncheck the Check-only mode checkbox and click OK.

If it is necessary to repair permissions for all domains, you can launch Plesk Reconfigurator (Start > Programs > SWsoft > Plesk > Plesk Reconfigurator). When it is running, choose Repair Plesk installation, toggle on Plesk virtual hosts security, and click on the Check button.

rDNS with a Windows 2008 Server with plesk and Mailenable

Configuring the rDNS for a linux server is easy. A windows server with plesk is a different story.

Plesk

I changed the hostname in the plesk Tools and Settings.

pleskhostname

Rebooted the system. Then sent a test email. Here is the header:


Received: from WIN-QO7M1M92HBS.home

Humm…where is the new hostname? So I did some investigation. I checked the computername in windows:

Win-Computername

Then I checked the Mailenable settings > Services and Connectors > SMTP > properties.

SMTP Connector

So, the email received from name is a combination of the Windows computer name and the Mailenable Local domain name.

Now that I had this information, how do I give the mail server a valid hostname?
