    Ethernet through walls

    You would want an outdoor rated cable if its running on the exterior of a building exposed to elements (Sun and rain) for an extended period of time. You would want to find something with dielectric grease on the inside of the sheath in case it was pierced and water was able to get in. You could get something like THIS or if its just going a short distance outside or going to be tucked under siding just user regular riser cable able just make sure you don't pierce the sheath when entering the building. The riser cable has the spline running through the middle so you'll have less chance of damaging the wires.

    Partioning Tool

    So I recently cloned a HDD over to a SSD using Acronis. It dynamically adjusted the partion sizes and now Windows is freaking out that the recovery partion is full. I tried using Disk Mngr to shrink the \C drive and add it to the recovery drive but it didn't work. Is there any other programs that will let me extend the partion?

    Cable Surge Protection??

    Do you know if it would be okay to tie it into the ground on the electrical or would it be better to run a dedicated ground outside. The media panel is on an outside wall (15ft to the ground) whereas the electrical has to travel 80ft or so.

    Cable Surge Protection??

    Yeah I'm talking about coaxial and telephony. We've had lighting come in 4 times. The first I didn't have any surge and it fried multiple things, the other three it fried a surge protector but I was wondering if the built in UPS surge would be good enough or if I should put in dedicated for the coax and telephone.

    Cable Surge Protection??

    So I'm installing a media panel in my house and was debating on how to handle the surge. Theres going to be a UPS in this media panel so my question is can I use the built in surge on the UPS? I've heard some people say built in surge is useless and to have dedicated surge protection. Help

    Outlook Untrusted App Error

    So I've come across this at work and I just wanted to get some opinions on how to fix the problem. We use a POS program called SellWise for invoicing and whenever trying to send out a mass group of invoices through Outlook from SellWise Outlook gives me this error. I called the company and they told me simply to download a program that automatically clicks yes on all 200x prompts for the invoices. This is not the solution I would like to use. Any Ideas?

    SSD's or HDD's??

    So I acquired a server and am in the process of upgrading some of the hardware for my needs. At first I was going to split the storage in half having a SSD and a HDD datastore. The HDD datastore would consist of 5x 4TB or more drives. This would strictly be for Plex Media server. However I was then going to have a SSD datastore containing 16x 480GB drives. The realization of how much it would cost finally hit me, 16x Intel SSD's would be around $1800. So I got to thinking about it and even with 10Gb networking is a SSD storage array even worth it??? The SSD storage would be used for programs such as games and other applications that are otherwise meant to be run on a local computer.
  8. So I'm in the process of building a new server and would like to have a SSD storage array. My question is would it be worth getting a used server SSD like the Intel S3500 480GB or would it be better to just get a consumer grade brand new SSD for around the same cost?? Thanks!

    Forwarding Ports for Xbox?? MikroTik

    Here's another screenshot @brwainer, Any input on what beersykins is saying? Is it needed and how would I implement it?

    Forwarding Ports for Xbox?? MikroTik

    I'm a little confused on this. I'm still pretty new to setting up firewall rules. I think I've already done this? I'll send a screenshot here in about 30 mins however if I haven't I would like to know how. I'm all about securing my network and learning more!

    Forwarding Ports for Xbox?? MikroTik

    Thanks! That appears to have worked. As far as I know Plex doesn't require the port to be in the "To Ports"??
  12. So a little while back I got rid of my ISP router for a MikroTik CR125 Cloud Router Switch. I love it because I can conceal everything in my media panel and keep everything neat and tidy. However, I wanted to keep UPnP disabled for security reasons (And the fact I couldn't get it to work). So I googled the ports I needed to forward and created my rules and went to clickin. Buttt, it doesn't look like my port forwards are actually working. I have minimal packet flow and my NAT type on the Xbox went from Moderate to Strict. I set my Xbox to have a static IP of and you can see that in my settings. Can someone tell me how to correctly forward these ports. I'll included screenshots of my settings that I tried and also have the ports needed listed. Should they be configured as source NAT?

    Cloud Hosted UniFi Controller???

    So I know you can make a UniFi controller discoverable on the public side but I'm wondering if you can set up a UniFi Video controller to do the same thing?? Thanks

    Media Panel Layout?

    So I'm in the process of cabling my house and was trying to figure out how I wanted to lay out all the devices in my media panel. It's a little cramped but its going to have to do and theres more that has to go in. I'll include some pictures, the red square is where the coax splitter would most likely go. Basically give me your opinion on which layout would work best or suggest a new layout. Thank!
