One ot the solutions is using the Firefox browser and installing the PDF Download Extension. (Use menu opotions Extra->Extensions->More Extensions. Search for PDF Download.

ISA Server 2004. Microsoft Security Services.

ISA Server 2004. Microsoft Security Services.

ISA Server 2004 is the core component for protecting Microsoft Networks

Microsoft® Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 has extended its capabilities from a simple web caching server and is now becoming one of the key components for protecting Microsoft Networks, as a secondary firewall used to protect the organisation's assets. These are the key areas where we believe it adds security control to the organisational network.

* Departmental or Back-End Firewall
Note: While ISA can be used as an Internet Edge Firewall, Peapod believe there are more suitable solutions to provide this functionality such as NetScreen and Check Point.
* Combined with SurfControl for Web filtering
* Application Firewall for MS Outlook Web Access and MS SharePoint
* Reverse Proxy for MS Internet Information Server

Sharepoint and firewall

Some special considerations dictate the use of a particular firewall. For example, no other product integrates with and protects Exchange servers and Outlook Web Access (OWA) users as well as ISA Server, because both products are made by Microsoft to work seamlessly together. ISA Server is also designed from the ground up to work with SharePoint Portal Servers (SPS). If protecting your Exchange and SPS servers is a high priority, ISA is your logical first choice.

Bluetooth WIDDCCOM installation


I updated Windows XP with SP2 (Service Pack 2) and Bluetooth does not work anymore.
my bluetooth will not work on Windows XP with SP2 (Service Pack 2) because on SP2 Windows has added its own free Bluetooth utility which is not compatible and will conflict with my bluetooth utility.


To work around this issue and to successfully install the Bluetooth driver/utility that come with the adapter, Try this:
If you already have the Utility installed form the CD, you need to remove it now from the Windows Add and Remove Program
Unplug the bluetooth device from the computer.
Create new folder name Bluetooth on your desktop.
Click Start,
click Run, type %windir%\inf in the Open box, and then click OK.
Move all files which has a name: Bth -- to the Bluetooth folder you created on the desktop.
Right click on My Computer and bring up Manage.
Click on the plus sign next to Services and Applications.
Click on Services.
On the right hand pane, right click on Bluetooth Support Service and click Stop
Run the installation CD.
When the "No Bluetooth device detected..." error message
windows pop up, plug the bluetooth device into the working USB port.
(keep re-plugging on different ports if necessary) untill the "Found New Hardware
Wizard" will pop up, and then keep click "Next" to finish up the installation.
click "OK" on the "No Bluetooth device detected..." error message windows.
The "WIDCOM Bluetooth software - Installation Shield Wizard" will continue to complete the installation.
If the Windows' Bluetooth-utility is not running, there should be only one Bluetooth icon you see in the task bar;
right click on it and select "Start using Bluetooth Device".
The "B" sign inside the Bluetooth icon should turn to white color.
Now if you look at the services there should two Bluetooth services:
1. Bluetooth Service
2. Bluetooth Support Service
Double click the "Bluetooth Support Service"(2) and change the "Startup type" to "Manual" and click "Apply".

Migrating Lotus Domino applications to Sharepoint

The Microsoft Application Analyzer 2006 for Lotus Domino is a tool that helps organizations to analyze their Lotus Notes/Domino application environment. It generates reports based on a number of application properties such as last accessed/modified dates, template types and the presence of workflow. Based upon the reports generated by this tool, customers can quickly identify applications that should not be migrated (such as administration applications or unused applications), applications that can easily be migrated to Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) templates and applications that require additional analysis.
