This post is the second part of setting up an OpenVPN server. In my previous post I initially intended to have all road warriors into the same subnet, different than the Server subnet, however that proved to be infeasible. Instead, each individual device not behind a network (such as the home network depicted there) will be assigned an IP from the OpenVPN server in the 192.168.201.0/24 subnet and will be able to access both the server as well as any other potential subnets in the network.

Suppose your application resides in http://anapplication.com (I really spent some time thinking about proper names about these. Really).
Fax over IP is a pain
The requirement A few months ago came the need for a fax machine. Worse yet, it had tobe connected on a dedicated phone line since the main line was configured to redirect unanswered calls to a mobile number after a number of rings, while incoming faxes could occur any time of the day.
WordPress 3.x on IIS 7.x with Unicode Permalinks – Problem SOLVED!
Generally speaking, I don’t like wasting time hunting down framework bugs. It’s not that I don’t like a challenge, it’s just that they are usually hard and very time consuming to fix (if at all possible), especially in case you have to deal with fringe cases (in other words, “Google isn’t going to help”). Since we have lots of clients…
On Forum software
Recently, I was searching the web for some information on a subject (I won’t get into details, suffice to say that it had to do with my sound card) when a promising link lead me to a forum discussion (which I won’t name here for obvious reasons).

Fun with caching WordPress & PHPBB 3 on IIS.
Recently, I was forced to look into PHP caching, thanks to a series of events. Here’s what happened: Once upon a fine day, the (windows) server demanded that I will install some windows updates it found and I proceeded. After the restart though, I noticed that all of our PHP sites were timing out. It didn’t take long to find…
