Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX

The downloadable Remote Desktop Web Connection ActiveX control provides most of the same functionality as the full Remote Desktop Connection software; however, the Remote Desktop Web Connection is designed to deliver this functionality over the Web. The Web package Setup program installs the downloadable ActiveX control and sample Web page on a server running Internet Information Services (IIS) 4.0 or later.

Expensive Internet Connections

In a report from Neowin, Kazakhstan is offering the most expensive ADSL internet connection: $3,355 monthly for a 1.5 Mbps ADSL. I also want to add, we don’t have ADSL connection of more than 512Kbps (At least not for a reasonable price). For more, we will have to get a WiMAX or SkyFiber which for a 1Mbps connection, it would cost $1,222 monthly. Not bad, na?

Microsoft UC Managed API SDK RC

Microsoft’s approach to VoIP is the one we all were looking in the old Asterisk <-> Live Communication Server <-> Exchange Server days. Where we all wanted handling all things from a centralized AD much more simply rather than a non-solid platform for integration.

The Software Development Kit for the Microsoft Unified Communications Managed API version 1.0 (UCMA v1.0) includes documentation of the API, sample applications that use the API, and a redistributable package. UCMA v1.0 is an endpoint API that provides the flexibility and scalability required by advanced developers to build and integrate server applications (e.g. alert broadcasting, persistent chat, instant messaging response bots, etc.) into an existing Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 infrastructure.

Don’t Expect a BASH from Microsoft Windows Server 2008

Jose Barreto is giving more details of what we actually have to expect from Windows Server Core, not a Linux BASH actually, but just a platform with less headache for SysAdmins excluding unnecessary tools, and the capability to almost running any Windows software based on it. Good combination I guess.

Publishing Iran News in English

Actually there are not much interesting things happening in Iran IT world, but what would happen now and on will be published in my words here in Tech Guru. I’ll try introducing some Iranian Top IT Companies also. I guess that would help not only the inner companies but also the outer world to know Iran a bit better.

Major Iranian Blog Service Providers Under Attack

In recent days, two major Iranian blog service providers, PersianBlog and BlogFA have been under attacks. PersianBlog.com domain name is actually taken over but hopefuly BlogFA.com is still alive. They may better migrate forever to Dot IR domains preventing possible similar attacks.

HOWTO: Windows Server 2008 Beta 3 Server Core

You may learn how to configure the basics of Windows Server 2008 Server Core here.
If you have experience using Bash, the commands look somehow similar to you. Using the idx of Ethernet Interface for your configurations. As of “1″ in Windows Server 2008, we got eth1 in Linux. Pretty cool for administrators who are running servers remotely.
