    using a free proxy with a software

    I wasn't clear enough, my bad.. just the same country. But of course, using literally the same IP address of my computer / phone as a proxy for the software would be ideal. Would this be even possible ?

    connecting a Mac and a PC with ethernet cable

    ah, good point. I remember something like this from my networking classes too lol. The funny thing is, I already had it working couple months back. I have now tried the same cable as before and still no luck. I was able to get a ping both ways, but then I realized I had the wifi turned on...

    Precisely. Thank you very much. So your recommendation is to just let the Windows Update run overnight and see what happens ? No.

    Windows update hangs forever

    I have just installed a new copy of Windows 7 Pro, but without any drivers. I've looked for an ethernet controller driver (from a 2nd PC) and managed to install it. However, when I try to run the Windows update, or look automatically for the rest of the drivers, it just runs forever. I've...

    OpenVPN server setup

    I am trying to setup an OpenVPN connection (from a Windows client) to a Windows Server. I followed this tutorial, which is surprisingly the only start-to-finish tutorial that I've found. I've replicated it step by step, but I am unable to get a connection ('connection to the client has...

    I was setting up log monitoring for my DD-WRT router with Wall Watcher. What I have problems with is the actual logging. I've found that the router's syslog port is 514, however when I allow this in Firewall, nothing happens. Only when I turn off the firewall completely, I can see the log...

    windows server 2003 language change

    So my Windows Server 2003 is entirely in German. For practical reasons, I wanted to change the language for my account to English, however it prooved to be more problematic than I thought. I think in newer versions of Win Server, not even a reboot is necessary for the changes to take effect...
