1  CompTIA / Security+ / security+ minimun pass on: March 31, 2005, 02:11:54 PM

2  CompTIA / Security+ / TCAT pdf and Measure Up on: August 20, 2004, 01:08:21 AM
I am planning on using tcatpdf and measure up as study sources (among other freebies out there).

I was wondering how measure up sec+ practice exams were and why you think it is or is not worth it please. Measure up helped me pass network+ as a primary source, i am just curious why i have seen negative reviews on sec+ version from two different sources. :rolleyes:

also please someone PM me with the link to TCAT pdf so i can get started as soon as possible. Cheesy
3  CompTIA / Security+ / Security+ compared to Network+ on: July 29, 2004, 12:40:16 AM
i studied and took network+ some time ago, I did alright and did not encounter too much trouble after studyign for 2 months. I am curious how hard it security+ compared to network+ ?

im aware its a totally different aspect of IS but in terms of how you study/style/habit for this test how does it differ?
4  General discussions / General Discussion / Proxy Servers on: July 01, 2004, 07:41:54 PM
anything windows based?

i don't really want tyo block port 80 or IP's. I need to allow only certain sites from a "list" and restrict all others possibly by content
5  General discussions / General Discussion / Proxy Servers on: July 01, 2004, 05:58:12 PM
I am doing a bit of research..
My company is interested in implementing a Proxy server, i have little knowledge about the different types of proxies but we basicly just need it to restrict internet access.

what is recommended? I know ISA can do that but what is an easier or less expensive/complex solution that you guys might know of?

also keep in mind that it is not a large enterprise and is only of about 100 end users. Thank you :cool:
6  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-219 / Need Active Directory Help !! on: April 03, 2004, 02:00:27 AM
I am currently reading the Sybex study guide for 214 and goign through some of the exercises on my AD lab but i changed something and now im stuck !  

problem: I can't access, set or change any group policy because i don't have sufficient permissions

after troubleshooting for sometime I am almost sure that it is because of my computer login name. When i was goignt through those exercises I changed the administrator username to somehtign else on the security options of the Local policies. Now i made sure on every little thing that i had unchecked the "Define this .." for the modify administrator username check box
but i still cannot log on using my original username. the only username i can log on is still the one i had set/modified and removed (or thought I did). Ive searched everything and i still can't resolove the issue

is there a restore default option i can set to rectify this ? (i am still somewhat new to AD) any suggestions?:rolleyes:
7  CompTIA / Network+ / passed network+ on: February 12, 2004, 06:09:30 PM

Studied for 3 months. There was alot of trick questions and ridiculous material on my test but i managed with an 820 with just practice exams and explanations. Im looking to get MCP next , just one test because I rather not invest time in MCSA and MCSE 2000, that is, unless my employer requests it. I'm still trying to choose between 70-214 and 217 since I am familiar with those. My current goal after would be  Secuirty+, SSCP, CISSP and ethical hacker.

id like to thank all in this forum that helped out..

and now to celebrate..  :cool:
8  CompTIA / Network+ / NIC, OSI and CAT cabling on: February 08, 2004, 04:48:48 AM
ok just a few things left i need to be clear on.


According to the network+ exam what OSI layer does the NIC fall under?
im almost sure its Physical but I recently took a demo question that had data link as the answer which was very disturbing. unfortunately they had no explanation available.


"The transport layer of the OSi model is reponsible for packet handling as well as error and flow control"
   -and on another exam-
"Logical Link Control of the Data Link layer handles error correction and flow control and manages link control"

according to the Network+ exam if "error and flow control" shows up   what Layer is it gonna be??


CAT 1 voice telephone not for data
CAT 2 4 mbps, IBM sumbterminal to mainframes
CAT 3 10 mbps
CAT 4 16 mbps
CAT 5 100 mbps
CAT 5e (gigabit ethernet)
CAT 6 155 MBps
CAT 7 up to 1 GBps

transmisison speed wise, how accurate is this? I always thought cat 3 =16 mbps and cat 4=20 mbps. and that nothing was 10mbps was I wrong ?? :rolleyes:

15  CompTIA / Network+ / MeasureUp among others on: January 27, 2004, 01:28:19 AM
well it depends really it is over priced but since i purchased it a little over a year ago for windows 2000 for 50 $ or whatever its worth you get access to like 80 other exams in the CD if you know what to do .    I used the cd and the explanations to learn and memorize things like port nbrs protocols OSI models etc   the explanatiosn are well done and detailed unlike some other practice exams ive seen. but honestly like you said its not that great compared to a few others  but its not thaat bad
