I installed an Epson TM-T88VI printer for Kounta printing to work on Chrome. Kounta on Chrome will also not work on a normal network printer like Brother or Kyocera. Kounta only supports intelligent Epson printer if you want to use Kounta on a computer with Chrome. If you have an iPad, then it may have a different requirement.

I followed the instruction as per this video https://support.kounta.com/hc/en-us/articles/203236310-Setup-an-Epson-Intelligent-printer-with-Kounta, I even added the --allow-running-insecure-content parameter on Chrome shortcut, but test print keeps failing.

To fix this issue, login to Epson web configuration page (https://ip-of-the-printer/webconfig-i/), if it ask for a username and password, type epson on both.

This article how to setup Draytek Vigor 2760 with iiNet FTTN/VDSL2 NBN plan.

iiNet supplied modem Technicolor TG789vac is blocking port 443 so OWA and Exchange ActiveSync for mobile clients are not working. Port blocking is enabled by default on iiNet so disable it via Toolbox or by ringing them.

I had to install the previous modem Draytek Vigor2760 back. NBN in client's premise is Fibre to the Node, so we are using the old phone line socket that was originally used when the client had the ADSL.

Screenshots below came up from an information combined from the following links:

Make sure you have the latest firmware for Vigor2760. At the time of writing, I am using the firmware Vigor2760_v3.8.2.2_VECTOR2.zip from http://www.i-lan.net.au/downloads/Vigor2760/Firmware/V3.8.2.2/Vigor2760_v3.8.2.2_VECTOR2.zip

Devices involved on this setup are the following:

  • Modem is Draytek Vigor 2830n-plus connected to NBN Connection box UNI-D1; DHCP Server is disabled
  • VoIP Gateway is Telstra Netgear 7610 connected to Draytek's LAN port, WAN port of the Netgear is unused; FXS1 and FXS2 are in used connected to MDF; DHCP Server is disabled
  • Analog Telephone Adaptor Cisco SPA122 for the 3rd phone line
  • Windows SBS 2008 which is the DHCP Server (option 66 is enabled)

Draytek Vigor2830n-plus WAN2 is configured using Static or Dynamic IP, not PPPoE so no ISP username and password needed to be configured to the modem.

Basically, the objective is to have the UNI-D1 connected to Draytek WAN/Gigabit port, then just connect Telstra 7610 LAN port to Draytek LAN port. Draytek is used as the modem because the Netgear 7610 VPN functionality is limited.

  1. Login to your printer (default username and password is Admin - make note of uppercase A).
  2. Go to Network Settings, make sure IPP is set to on with port number 631 (unless your CUPS is using a different port number).

  3. Login to your CUPS server (https://ip-address:631/admin/) then add the printer using the IP address or hostname. For example, http://laser1:631/ipp

Note: This has been tested only on a computer connected to the internet via network cable and not wireless.

  • Login to the computer as local user (eg. user)
  • Install OpenVPN and setup/configure as normal
  • Create the OpenVPN certificate for that new VPN user you want to login as (eg. domainuser) if it doesn't exist
  • Using OpenVPN, connect to your network VPN as the user you want to login the domain profile as (in this case is domainuser)
  • While connected to the VPN, go to Start and Log Off and Switch User
  • Login as different user, type the domainuser and password (this is assuming the computer has been joined to the domain beforehand). Now you should see the Welcome screen and now the profile has been created locally to the computer.

SCENARIO: A Vista server (Home Edition 32-bit), 3 XP clients and other 5 Vista clients joined together on a Workgroup. Twice a day, we have to restart the Vista server as the XP machine lost connection when trying to access a file from the Vista server and XP clients give the following errors:

  • when opening My Network Places = Error: Workgroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Network name is no longer available.
  • when opening shared/mapped folder = Error: %Share% is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access Denied.

There are times that accessing a shared folder or mapping a drive from Vista (as the server) using your XP (as the client) machine gave you this error "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation." Your only hope is restarting the server to allow access to the shared folder again.

To help you troubleshooting the issue, you may need to install LLTD (Link Layer Topology Discovery - KB922120) in your XP machine. Please check my other article for some helpful troubleshooting tips about Vista-XP sharing issues.

Download the WindowsXP-KB922120-v5-x86-ENU.exe, running it will give you an error not allowing you to install it, but there is a way around it...

Please do the following:
  1. Rename the WindowsXP-KB922120-v5-x86-ENU.exe to a simpler name e.g. 922120 and place it on e.g. C:\
  2. Click Start button navigate to run prompt and type in cmd and press enter or click ok (a black window will open)
  3. Type the following in the command prompt (cursor blinking)

Go to client's PC who is experiencing this error, then do the following:

  • Start -> Run… -> type regedit, then hit Enter
  • Delete the LICENSE000 folder from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software]Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\
  • Restart the PC
  • Try to connect again to the Terminal Server using RDP

While trying to connect to your Terminal server, you are receiving a "The remote computer has ended the connection" error, to fix it:

1. Download and install devcon.exe from Microsoft. It’s a command line device manager tool.

2. Run devcon.exe which will extract it.

3. Open the Command Prompt

4. Navigate to the extracted devcon folder.

5. Type  devcon.exe -r install %windir%\inf\machine.inf root\rdpdr

6. Wait until it completes.

7. That’s it, try to connect remotely again.
