Oh man, yesterdays USC
vs. Virginia Tech game was ugly. But I'm really stoked that my
Trojans were able to pull out a win 24-13. USC didn't look like the
number 1 ranked team out there, but believe me, Pete Carroll will have
these boys playing better and better as the season progresses. I
love college football!
I have a new guide out for
you guys today:
Remote Desktop - Changing the Port Number (for security and multiple hosts)
In this guide, I'll show
you how to change the port number that Remote Desktop uses. Why would
you want to do this?
1. For security
purposes. The standard port of 3389 that Remote Desktop uses is very
well known which makes it a potential target for hackers.
2. To allow multiple
computers to run Remote Desktop Hosts from behind a router. Since
only one computer can use a given port number at anytime, we can give each
computer that runs Remote Desktop Hosts a different port number so each
one can be used remotely. Otherwise, with just the standard port
number of 3389, you would be able to connect to only one computer.
We can give Computer 1 port 4000, Computer 2 port 4001, and forward the
appropriate ports to the correct computers. Now you can connect to
many computers behind one router, not just one.
I have a new article up
today. It's called: LCD Screen Burn
- A Warning. If you have an LCD monitor, you need to read this
article. I talk about whether or not screen burn-in happens on LCD
monitors (it does) and how you can prevent and fix it. I know it's
not related to home webserving, but you should take a look anyways.
I've been doing a lot of
site maintenance lately, trying to clean up dead links, update pages, etc.
I updated the ISP Hot List with many more
server friendly ISP's. I also updated the Member
Sites page so check them out!
