  5. Hello People beware of web hosting company called www.canaca.com This company is managed by a bunch of thieves. It offers an alleged excellent offer to seduce you: (10 GB web space, 200 GB montly bandwidth, 3.95 $ per month) Sound good? Nope, once you're there you're busted. First they tell you when oredering that they need your phone number to call you for confirmation. And here come the first tide: You'll receive this e-mail from canaca.com: Now after taking your money, it's you who should call them.It's Ok, let's continue: They said that the call is free, and here's come the second tide: THE CALL IS NOT FREE Once YOU call and confirm, you need to send a dozen of begging e-mails to receive your login. It's OK. You'll wait 1 week to receive your username and password. The first week of hosting is great and everything is going fine. But once 10 days pass, your site will stop working, it will cease to exist. You can neither upload nor download, and you'll recieve a new e-mail, so prepare yourself for a third tide: My goodness!!! Where's the 200 GB promised??? Whatever your explanation is, you'll receive this e-mail: See guys, I can only use 10 % of my 200 GB. My 200 GB dropped to 20 GB monthly. And notice: http://canaca.com/contract.html This page is hidden when you place your order. It only appears when they drop your 200 GB to 20 GB. So you need now to accept the new rules, otherwise the hosting will be canceled and you can say goodbye to your money. What is funny, is that on their home page, they said "30 days money back gurantee if you're not satisfied..." Well this is a big lie. You'll never get your money back. Jusr read the hidden page: http://canaca.com/contract.html: So dream not of some money back. Now, if you send more e-mails to protest and asking when your IP will be unblocked, you'll be punished and you'll receive this e-mail: So now I lost my money, my bandwitdh dropped to 20 GB and I am punished for at least 4 days. I don't know what is waiting for me in the next few days. Don't worry, I'll let you know. Meanwhile, please warn your friends: BEWARE OF THESE THIEVES AT WWW.CANACA.COM

  9. DNS problem

    Hi I set a new Windows 2000 AS domain. And I have also 15 clients that should join the new domain. The problem is that these 15 clients have ROUTABLE IPs and not private IPs. I am wondering how could I set the DNS so that the clients may join the domain and in the same time keep their routable IPs? Thx in advance

  11. Hi I just need an answer for this question about permissions: When we move a file to a target folder on the same NTFS partition, what will be the permissions of the file? Surely the file retains its original permissions. But what if the source file had as NTFS Permissions Allow Full Control for User A. But the target folder doesn't have NTFS permissions for User A. The question was: What will the effective permissions be on the file: Here we can have 2 answers: - The File will retain its orginal permissions and User A will still have Full Control over the file - But the User will not be able to see or access the file because he already doesn't have access to the target folder So what is the right answer? Both choice are used and one is the right answer. I am too confused...
