Sharepoint installation

Today I've installed and configured a Sharepoint server for the company where I'm sitting.

They had a requirement that they should be able to access the site from the the in and outside.

So now I've configured that with SSL and basic authentication and they are very pleased with the solution.

Hope i have more time to a more detailed report later

Trading deadline

Now we have passed the trading deadline.

25 deals were made this day, some minor and som quite big.

The Devils picked up Bryce Salvador from the Blues in exchange for Cam Jansen.

I'm a bit sad to see Cam go. He had such energy when he played, but he had trouble getting back in the lineup. He's a good fighter and can add some toughness to the Blue.

What i don't understand is why we picked up Salvador, we now have 9 defensmen on our roster.
We now have:

Maybe Lou or coach Sutter knows something a don't (probably).
I think at least 1 of them will be sent down to Lowell

Penguins got Hossa, but may have paid a big price for him.

Stars got Richards

Sharks got Campbell

Capitals got Huet and Fedorov

It should be exciting to se which deals turn out to be good ones.........lets get back to that in the summer.

Devils on fire

The Devils have been on fire lately! They have been winning and playing solid hockey (except against washington on sunday, where they were outplayed but won the game).

They are in first place in the Eastern Conference, 1 point ahead of the Senators and 2 ahead of Penguins.

The trading deadline is a day away and many rumors out there about Hossa, Richards, Jokinen to name a few.

Not so much rumors about the Devils, as usual, where Lou keeps everything to himself.

Anothere story is that Forsberg have signed a contract with Colorado for the remindere of the season. We'll se how that turns out.

The Devils defeated Ottawa Senators last night.

Langenbrunner and Rachunek each had a goal in the second period.

Gionta scored in overtime.

Elias had 2 assists.

Brodeur was very good i goal, and has now won 30 wins or more for 12 straight seasons.
Lets hope he reaches 40 wins this season for the 7:th time of his career

Problems with bugzilla

I got an error on my bugzilla server today:

There was an error sending mail from '' to '':Can't send data

The problem was solved when i uppgraded all my email perl-modules.

Uppgrade every module with email in it's name and you should be god to go.

You should also check so you have a working smtp-server first.....

Devils host Ottawa

Tonight the Devils will host the Senators. I think it's a very important game, either we hang on the top teams in the conference or we are fighting for a playoff spot.

Right now the Penguins leads the Atlantiv division with 3 points ahead of Devils.
The Flyers are 1 point behind us, and have not played very well lately.

So tonights game is very important, and we can gain even more if we win these 2 games against the Senators (we meet them again on saturday).

It feels good to have Pandolfo back in the lineup.

Did you see the goal Oduya scored against Carolina??? If you didn't, look at it here.

Devils win

The Devils played against the Penguins at the Rock yesterday.

Zach Parise scored the winning goal in overtime, to seal the deal.

We have not had a greate record against our division teams this season.

So let's hope this continues

Installing Webdav with IIS and SSL

A couple of weeks ago i got a question, that I had to think about for a few minutes.
We need a more secure way of transfering files between our customers and us?? FIX IT!!

That was a short summary of the conversation.

I know that the ftp protocol sucks and with sftp with ISA Server isn't going so well.

So I thought of webdav with SSL, and then they could also do some other stuff, not only transfer files.

So i started to install IIS on my Windows 2003 computer. Webdav should follow the default installation of IIS.
Enter the IIS and request a new certificate for the website you're going to use.

Then you neew to sign the new certificate, for yourself or send it to a CA.

Here is a guide on how you do it yourself with openSSL. OpenSSL works on both linux and Windows.
You can also install the IIS resource kit and make one with selfssl.

When you have signed the certificate it time to install it, and you do that the same way you did when you requested a new certificate, almost....

Then its time to create a new virtual directory. Just follow the wizard when doing this.
Be sure that you have access to write to that directory you are using as a webdav folder.

If your users must authenticate, you can choose domain in the authentication method.

Now you have a webdav folder with ssl.

If you have a firewall, you probobly know what to do next, allow ssl traffic to the server

Sorry for the not so detailed description

Hope it works for you....

My daughter takes a lot of my time, but I think that it's a possitive thing.
