Router do give some protection, but firewalls provide more security.
For more security, you should look into:

Software routers do not give out internet addresses. A program called DHCP gives out internet address.   Your ISP will give your router an internet protocol address.  If you have a separate router box, it's DHCP program will dish out another Internet Protocol address to your mac.

  • Is it possible to change the compiler that is built into Sun Creator?

    Is it possible to change the compiler that is built into Sun Creator?
    I would like to compile my project to run under the JNI. I have tried to use the command line to run the javah -jni filenames but I always get errors and my assumption is that I need to change or adapt the IDE WITHOUT violating any licensing agreements to get the JNI working in this IDE.
    I would appreciate any help that I could get in regards to this issue whther someone from SUN wants to comment or if any developer's have had this issue and have solved it...

    Okay, I just tried this. I changed the default location of J2SE JDK in the creator conf file. Saved the file.
    For example:
    #netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Sun\Creator2_1\java"
    netbeans_jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\JDK1.5.0_04"
    On restarting the IDE the new path is taken. To see the change: go to main menu -> Help -> About Java Studio Creator . Go to Detail tab. You will see the values for Java and Java Home changed as per your change in the creator.conf file.
    Hope this helps.

    If the music was purchased from iTunes you may download it again, if not you will have to get it from your backup (if you have one)

  • HT4260 Is it best to place a 5-port switch upstream of the bridges, or, use the 3-port switch built into the bridge?

    One airport extreme as DHCP server, two more as bridges, using Ethernet,

    As long as you use a Gigabit Ethernet switch, you can install the device literally anywhere you want downstream of the main AirPort Extreme router if you need more ports for Ethernet devices. Otherwise, use the Gigabit Ethernet switch that is built into the AirPort Extreme to keep things simple and minimize the extra connections that would be required using an outboard switch.
    Be sure to use CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cabling throughout the network.

  • How to find all routes that are going out an interface in IOS-XR.

    Hi all,
    So if I have the following set up in IOS:
    interface GigabitEthernet7/0/0.265
    encapsulation dot1Q 265
    ip vrf forwarding test
    ip address 1.1.1.1 255.255.255.252
    ip verify unicast reverse-path
    end
    ip route vrf Apollo 2.2.2.0 255.255.255.248 1.1.1.2
    I can see all the routes that are going out the interface using show ip cef command:
    ios-router#show ip cef vrf test GigabitEthernet7/0/0.265
    2.2.2.0/29
      nexthop 1.1.1.2 GigabitEthernet7/0/0.265
    1.1.1.0/30
      attached to GigabitEthernet7/0/0.265
    1.1.1.2/32
      attached to GigabitEthernet7/0/0.265
    In case of IOS-XR (ASR9K 4.3.2 or 4.3.1) the same setup and command shows only
    attached routes:
    router static
    vrf test
      address-family ipv4 unicast
       2.2.2.0/29 1.1.1.2
    RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:TST_riga-sb7-pe-asr9#show cef vrf test bundle-ether2.265
    Prefix              Next Hop            Interface
    1.1.1.0/30          attached            Bundle-Ether2.2220333
    1.1.1.0/32          broadcast           Bundle-Ether2.2220333
    1.1.1.1/32          receive             Bundle-Ether2.2220333
    1.1.1.2/32          1.1.1.2             Bundle-Ether2.2220333
    1.1.1.3/32          broadcast           Bundle-Ether2.2220333
    Is there any command to see all the routes that are going out an interface without complicated parsing
    of the configuration, recursive show cef commands etc.?

    You can accomplish this with the "show route" command.  Here is an example:

  • Is it possible to change the first page of a web application that was built using the UI?

    Hello Community
        Using Sharepoint 2010 Server and the UI I built and application and would like
    to continue building the web application using the UI.
        The application's first page was built using a Blank Site template and
    the subsequent subsites were built using the Team Site template.
        In retrospect the first page should also have been built using a Team Site template.
        It may be unnecessary to make to delete the application
    and create the first page as a Team Site and then have to create all of the
    subsites (Team Sites) all over again.
        As a solution to prevent deleting the whole application and creating application
    with all of the subsites all over again whether it is possible to do any of the
    following:
        - Convert the Blank Site page into a Team Site page which would allow
    me to leave all of the subsites as is.
        - rename the Blank site page which would in effect would be renaming the application
    then create a new Team Site page which would be essentially creating a new application and
    then adding all of the subsites contained in the renamed application that has the first page
    as a Blank page.
        And if is possible to add, copy or move the subsites from existing sites to a new Team Site
    page, how do you add, copy or move the subsites from one application to a diffent application?
        Thank you
        Shabeaut

    Hi Shabeaut,
    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to change the template of the root site without creating the susites in another web application.
    I recommend to export all the existing subsites and import them to new web application.

    For the Internet, you should set up a router on your modem, this router will route the packets to any device on the local area network.
    If you use the iMac as a router, like if you connect the Ethernet cable from your modem to the iMac, then broadcast a Wifi signal, the iMac will have to remain on all the time, at full power. Thus drastically shortening it's lifespand.
    A router is only about $100 or so, offers much better security as it's like a large guard, someone has to hack through router first to get your iMac or other devices.
    If it breaks, you buy another 5 years later for another $100, so your not placing all that always on wear and tear on your expensive iMac.
    Apple's airport routers are pretty good, easy to set up and have automatic firmware updates, plus music sharing etc.
    Set up properly you will be very secure

  • I have an iMac and under devices in the sidebar that name has changed from iMac to iMac(1) to iMac(2)...and is now at iMac(9).  What is causing this and how do I correct it?

    I have an iMac and under devices in the sidebar that name has changed from iMac to iMac(1) to iMac(2)...and is now at iMac(9).  What is causing this and how do I correct it?

    Sometimes this message means that you have two simultaneous connections to the same local network: probably Ethernet and Wi-Fi. If applicable, disconnect the Ethernet cable or turn off Wi-Fi.
    Sometimes it happens because a device that gets its network address from the router wakes from sleep, and the address it was using before has been assigned to another device.
    A third-party wireless router that has incompatible settings or firmware may be the cause. In that case, refer to the manufacturer or ISP for support. Restarting the router may help, temporarily.
    Rename the computer in the Sharing preference pane.

  • I have a Cisco/Linksys WRT-54G wireless router and 2 Airport Extremes (the small ones that plug directly into the wall). Is it possible to extend the network from the router using these two AEs? I have a DVD player and Ext HD plugged into the router too..

    I have a Cisco/Linksys WRT-54G wireless router and 2 Airport Extremes (the small ones that plug directly into the wall). Is it possible to extend the network from the router using these two AEs? I have a DVD player and Ext HD plugged into the router too. Any ideas? I'm guessing the only way is to do what I've seen in these community pages which states that it can be done but it will drop the bandwidth by 50%. Thoughts?? Thanks!

    The Cisco/Linksys WRT-54G was one of the very few routers said to be compatible with Apple's implementation of WDS (Wireless Distribution System) settings.
    The info that I have on file indicates that only the WRT-54G versions 4 and under were compatible, so that would be one bridge to cross.
    Even if you find that your Cisco/Linksys might be the right version, Apple never published instructions on how to configure the Express devices with other manufactures, so users were left to their own devices to try to figure out how to get things working. Apple's instructions to connect to other Apple devices are in the link below:
    WDS network
    If you were hoping to use 2 Express devices in this type of configuration...even if it works...the bandwidth penalties will be extremely severe.
    The first Express drops the bandwidth (and speed) on the entire network in half and the second halves everything again. So, the result, in effect would be a "g" wireless network running at 25% speed. Few users would consider installing this type of network.
    At this point, it becomes one of those things where the fact that you might be able to do something does not mean that there would be much value in doing so. But, it is your decision to decide if you want to try to proceed.

  • How much RAM is built into the current Airport Extreme?

    How much RAM is built into the current Airport Extreme (5th Gen)?

    The only RAM that's likely onboard is whateve is used by the hardware and would be soldered to the board. One would need to disassemble it in order to determine what if any RAM is on the board. There is no user-accessible RAM.

  • How to fix my router that I messed up.

    I was attempting to connect my router to the internet. I ran an ethernet cord from Dell PowerConnect 2016, which is connected to my desktop, to my Cisco Linksys E1000 router and I plugged it into the ethernet port instead of the internet port and it has messed everything up. How do I fix this in order to be able to use my wireless router? Before I did this I was able to wirelessly connect my laptop to the router, but as soon as I plugged the ethernet cord into the wrong port on the router everything messed up.

    Before you continue below, make sure you've first tried a hard reset to revive your router as previously suggested. If that fails, try the following:
    Disconnect the router from UTP cables (not the power cable).
    Push reset button for 30 secs.
    Without releasing reset button, disconnect power cord.
    Hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
    Replug the power cord.
    Still hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
    Release the reset button and give the router about 10 secs to resettle.
    Disconnect power cord for another 10 secs and then reconnect.
    All should be in default settings now.
    This procedure is usually called 30/30/30 reset.
    If you still have issues, try first connecting a single computer to the router DIRECTLY using a UTP cable. Try logging in via the web interface. Tell us what happens.

  • I have on iPad iPhoto, how do i import to my mac the albums that i created on the iPad iPhoto?

    I have on iPad iPhoto, how do i import to my mac the albums that i created on the iPad iPhoto?

    Here's a Mac World article that may help. Still not perfect but will help transfer edited photos. If done in groups you can re-create the Albums on the Mac.
    http://www.macworld.com/article/2010727/the-ultimate-iphoto-workflow.html
    Basically the process requires "Sharing to iTunes" through the iPad's app then syncing with iTunes. The shared photos will be found in the File Sharing section of the Apps tab of it's sync settings, not the Photos syncing tab.
    The other method is to save your edited photos to Camera Roll and import through iPhoto on the Mac or Photo Stream. Once again you'll need to do it in groups to save your Albums then recreate them on the Mac.
    I should also mention I have yet to use iPhoto on the iPad and there could very well be a better method out there. I have been researching for the best work flow to copy photos from my iPad which will be copied to the iPad with the camera connection kit, organized and edited on the iPad then copied in that state to my Mac once I get home. I like the idea behind Photo Journals while traveling and was disappointed to find they can not be saved, backed up or viewed through iPhoto on the Mac. I'm sure there are easier work flows but this is probably close to the route I will be taking.
    Any other input?
