    Router - Tomato firmware

    Hello again! I helped myself with this tutorial (Connect to Your Home Network From Anywhere with OpenVPN and Tomato) and set up OpenVPN on my Tomato router. I tried it in VMware Player and it seemed like it's working. Today I tried it on a friend's remote located PC (on another public IP...

    Macrium Reflect Free on Windows 8.1 ASUS Transformer

    Hello! I've bought an ASUS Transformer Book T100TAM tablet/laptop which has Windows 8.1 preinstalled. First thing I did was create a full system image of the whole eMMC (integrated memory card, serves as a hard drive for the Transformer). That is the OS partition (C:) and four other (UEFI...

    Wake On Lan (over the internet)

    Hi again! I'll try to explain my WOL over WAN situation more in depth. I'm using NirSoft's WakeMeOnLan to send the magic packet. The computer (PC A) I'm on is on a 192.168.1.X network and the one I would like to wake up (PC B) is on the 192.168.2.X subnet. I have a UTP cable going from...

    Wake On Lan (over the internet)

    I've read my router's manual but there's no mention of WOL. My router is Belkin N150 (F9K1009 v1). I have forwarded a port for the RDC and that worked fine. Then I fiddled around and forwarded a port for WOL but it doesn't seem to be working. I have found some info here but it doesn't apply to...

    Wake On Lan (over the internet)

    Hi! I am able to Wake On Lan a remote PC - but only on the same LAN. I would like to be able to do it over the internet or at lease to a different subnet for starters. How would I go about it? I've opened port 9 in the router of the subnet for the remote computer's IP but it doesn't work...

    Dual Boot (Win 7 + Win 8.1)

    What would that mean for me - that the new 300 MB (hidden) partition would be made at the end of the drive? Will I be able to reclaim that space when I delete Windows 8.1?

    Dual Boot (Win 7 + Win 8.1)

    That sounds great, that's how I imagined it. I have only one 500 GB HDD. I have C (Windows 7 boot) and D partition on it plus another no-name (hidden) 100 MB partition which is needed to install Windows 7 (I guess). E & F are DVD-RW drives and G & H turn on when I plug in 2 of my USB keys. Now...

    Dual Boot (Win 7 + Win 8.1)

    Hm, is that really neccessary? Am I safe if I just disable the drive letters in the Disk Management? Please answer my second paragraph from my previous post - how will each OS see the other OS' partitions and if both boot partitions will be marked as C in each OS respectively. Thank you!

    Dual Boot (Win 7 + Win 8.1)

    1. What if I disable the drive names (C, D etc.) in the Admin. Tools, Comp. Manag., Disk Management? Then the drives can't be accessed from the other OS., right? 2., 3.: OK. 4., 5., 6. I won't be removing disks, that's way too tideous. It's a laptop computer. I am interested in how Windows 7...
