    NCP Enterprise VPN Client with Allied Telesis AR4050S

    Marc Pauls  14 October 2021 22:52:55
    As the AR4050S determines all IKE-IDs with an "@" in it as FQUN and without an "@" as FQDN in its IPsec
    implementation it was difficult (especially with the Mac client where no expert mode exists) to establish

    a proper connection without much handwork if you want to use usual usernames that are not email addresses.

    Now NCP released a new client plugin in their SEM that has the possibility to define the FQDN or FQUN

    manually (in the client template or delegated to the client itself).

    This makes it finally possible to use the NCP client together with the great firewall products of Allied Telesis
    in a perfect way without the need of any strange OpenVPN clients.

    Both together - the NCP Client and the AR4050S firewall - let you build a solid and reliable VPN login platform
    for your business. The outstanding performance in IPsec routing in comparison to other competitors makes
    this combination an excellent solution for a secure access to your company network.

    Thank you NCP for the excellent job!

          Thüringer Schulcloud nicht von überall erreichbar

          Marc Pauls  24 April 2021 08:35:23
          Am 22./23.04.2021 war die Thüringer Schulcloud bzw. der dortige Login-Bereich nicht von allen Anschlüssen erreichbar.
          Grund dafür war eine aktivierte DDoS-Protection bei dem zuständigen Hoster 1&1 IONOS. Dort wurden ganze Netzbereiche vorsorglich gesperrt, von denen man meinte sie könnten eine "Gefahr" darstellen. Nach einiger Korrespondenz mit dem Support konnten wir nun ein Whitelisting zumindest unserer IP-Adressbereiche erwirken.

              Telekom CompanyFlex Pure - LANCOM

              Marc Pauls  10 April 2021 09:21:42
              When setting up a Telekom CompanyFlex Pure account (with use of a "foreign" access) with the LANCOM wizard it is necessary to enable/enforce the TLS 1.2 encryption afterwards in the line settings.
              ComanyFlex Pure seems to work only with encryption from outside the DTAG network.

                      installing Notes 10 on a usual Windows Terminalserver

                      Marc Pauls  17 November 2019 12:08:10
                      IBM/HCL for years only support the installation of a Notes Client in a Citrix environment.
                      We have installed our Notes Client on our Terminalserver in c:\notes with this command:

                      setup.exe /v"SETMULTIUSER=1 MULTIUSERBASEDIR=c:\notes\!USERNAME! MULTIUSERCOMMONDIR=c:\notes\common CITRIX=1"

                      ...even not supported it runs absolutely perfect!
