If you have trouble with the above link you can also copy and paste this to find the video:
As an application developer, network admin, security admin, or anyone who is responsible for communications between one device to another it is important to know how to verify your basic ports and their access.
For instance you should have found by now that you cannot ping the specific port however in several cases you can telnet to the specific port. Below are the basic protocols and their ports:
HTTP – 80
FTP – 21
TELNET – 23
Now, in order to test you will need to open a command prompt. For this exampe we will use the FTP port:
telnet servername 21
You should see the following as a result:
If you see the above you have successfully connected. If anything other you will want to check where the port may be blocked. A few places you will find this blocked could be the operating systems firewall, a group policy (usually in a corporate environment), or a network setting blocking the port.
Common question that starts like:
“I fogot my Norton Admin Password … ” or “My administrator is no longer here and we don’t know the password … “
Here is your answer and how you will go about fixing it to uninstall the client:
1. Click on start
2. Click on Run
3. type REGEDT32 and hit Enter
4. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Intel\LANDesk\VirusProtect6\CurrentVersion\AdministratorOnly\Security
5. Locate and double-click on the UseVPUninstallPassword
a) Now change that value to a 0 instead of a 1
6. Click OK
7. Close REGEDT32
8. Navigate to Add/Remove programs and uninstall your Symantec Norton Antivirus product

Do these YouTube video captures of political ads grab you in a particular way?
Something to think about …
From years gone by:
Well, let’s see, I am trying to stay afloat here.
With changes in work, the updates to personal life such as moving and going back to school, and just in general “busy” I have once again started to fall behind on posts. It seems I need to focus by putting up a note on my calendar just to get the posts regular here again as well.
Hey, it works for work and school and personal items, why not the blog too.
This morning I added the Dilbert widget. Hope everyone likes it!
Let me know what you think!
Here is today’s chat with a Sprint Representative:
So what they are saying, without saying directly of course, is that Sprint doesn’t know how to stock or help their customers (new and old) stay informed? Makes you wonder if that is what sent many people over to their competitor *cough cough* (iPhone 4). Or perhaps we are all just going to wait for HTC’s Droid X on the Verizon network? Perhaps Verizon’s date of 7.15.2010 is accurate?
True Verizon’s Incredible (by HTC) is on back order for more than a month and even Verizon is asking people with back orders of the Incredible to switch to the X. Perhaps this shows that HTC is having manufacturing issues and perhaps this isn’t all Sprint’s fault with the EVO. However, the masses (me included obviously) want the EVO but our ADD/ADHD society doesn’t like to wait long without some kind of update(s) before changing our minds and going to the next best thing. If a consumer perceives ineptitude on a provider’s part … in what other ways is a provider going to prove to be troublesome for the consumer in the long run?
Verizon did the right thing.
Where’s the updates from Sprint? We have to pull teeth and the replies are always innocuous at best.
Wow, I’m sounding agitated am I not?
The more you look into this though the more I’m convinced it is a manufacturing problem from HTC. Be it substandard parts or the Froyo update (as was the original plan to be loaded on this device by-the-by) or some other manufacturing issue. I’m not sure it’s all Sprint’s “fault” but I “fault” them for not having a clear answer to the issue. Again, seeing this same sentiment on many of the boards as well, meaning we don’t think it’s all Sprint but they have no way of setting expectations for anyone.
Okay, yet another post about “out of stock” complaints for the HTC EVO from Sprint. (see my original post here).
We are now 9 days into adding to the “list” to receive an HTC EVO from Sprint. The Corporate store is stating that they still have not received shipment of this phone and are still unable to provide anything close to an estimate. The wait list at this store is growing still however no new phones are in still yet.
When you go to the site Sprint website (http://www.Sprint.com) and attempt to see about getting an HTC EVO you are greeted with the following:
So sorry, check back again later …
This device was hyped long before it’s June 4th launch, yes they have found some issues they need to patch … is it really taking a month or more to get these out or is this really the first time Sprint has had to deal with “Supply and Demand” issues?
Sorry, I’m annoyed. I know I’m not the only one:
Do a search for “HTC EVO out of stock?” lol and you’ll see headlines matching that statement as well as the word “Again” added to it.
Guess those of us that want the Google Android experience will just have to complain and wait it out. At the same time Sprint looks more and more incompetent me thinks.
Just another rant for your lunchtime enjoyment!
See, this is just wonderful!
Where states and cities feel they need to “do something” to express their opinions about another state’s laws I have no idea. Isn’t there something more important … like abolishing your own stupid laws? (see: http://www.dumblaws.com and choose the state you’d like to know more about.)
So before you go poking your nose in a sovereign state’s business and threatening bans/boycotts you might want to think twice. First, don’t you have some stupid laws you need to work on? Second … what would happen if a major corporation/politician/commissioner told you … “I see your bet … and raise you …”
To the Honorable Gary Pierce (Commissioner of the Arizona Corporation Commission), you have made my day brighter today, Thank You!!
