Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP

If you’re designing a virtual test or evaluation network and want to get into complicated network scenarios you will eventually need to segment out your virtual network.
To do that you need something functioning as a router, since this may be virtual machines, you can’t just plug-in a hardware solution. This will allow you to mimic a much larger network and teach you how things might be done in a mid to enterprise sized environment.
For this walkthrough I will show you how to turn a Server 2008 box with two network interfaces into a router.

How to Install Routing on Windows Server 2008

I am going to be running this demo on a cleanly installed Windows Server 2008 virtual machine that is configured with two network interfaces both set to "Local Only" in Virtual PC 2007.
It currently holds no role information and will only function as a router. We will also configure RIP routing protocol so it can talk to other routers on the network.
1. Start Server Manager.
2. Click on Roles, and then click on Add Roles.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 1
3. Since this is a clean install we get a Before You Begin warning page telling us that if we’re going to install a role on a server to make sure it is secure. If you get this page, just click Next.
4. On the Select Server Roles page go ahead and place a check next to Network Policy and Access Services. Click Next after you’re done.

5. The next page gives you an overview of the Network Policy and Access Services and everything that you can do with it. Read through the various options and click Next.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 3
6. The Select Role Services page now comes up and we are going to go ahead and place a check next to Routing & Remote Access Services.
Note that you cannot just click on Routing because it is dependent on the Remote Access Service also being installed; then click Next.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 4
7. You are now asked to confirm your installation selections, review everything and then click on Install.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 5
8. After a few minutes you should see an Installation Results page and the outcome hopefully is Installation Succeeded, review any messages and then click Close.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 6
9. Now in Server Manager you can see in roles that Network Policy and Access Services is now installed, but it is in a down state because no devices are associated to the service.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 7
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 8
Go ahead and close out Server Manager as that now concludes the install of the Router service on the Windows Server 2008.

How to Configure Routing on Windows Server 2008

Ok let’s go ahead and get routing enabled and configured by associating some of our network adapters with the service.
1. Click on Start, Administrative Tools, Routing and Remote Access
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 9
2. When the Routing and Remote Access MMC starts you will notice that the server has a red down arrow showing that it is currently offline.
Right click on the server and select configure and Enable Routing and Remote access.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 10
3. The Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard will now come up, go ahead and click Next to get started.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 11
4. There are quite a few default options for this service that include:
  • Remote Access
  • Network Address Translation (NAT)
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN) & NAT
  • Secure Connection Between Two Private Networks
  • Custom Configuration
We are going to choose Custom Configuration and click Next.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 12
5. In the Custom Configuration screen you can choose several services, but for this demo go ahead and place a check next to LAN routing and then click Next.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 13
6. Again you will see a summary of your selections and you can go ahead and click on Finish.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 14
7. Next a pop-up window will tell you that Routing & Remote Access service is now ready to use, and you can click on Start service to start it.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 15
8. After a few seconds the service will start and the wizard will close. You can see in the Routing and Remote Access MMC that the server now has a green up arrow which shows that it is in a enabled state and functioning.
If you expand out the IPv4 folder and left click on General you will see the network interfaces listed in the right pane. Now right click on General and select New Routing Protocol.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 16
9. The New Routing Protocol window will contain 4 available protocols:
DHCP Relay Agent
IGMP Router and Proxy
NAT
RIP Version 2 for Internet Protocol

For this demo we are going to choose RIP Version 2 for Internet Protocol, though if you wanted the router to pass DHCP information you would also want to enable DHCP Relay Agent, but for this demo it is not necessary.
Make your selections and click OK.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 17
10. You should now see the RIP protocol under the IPv4 folder in your Routing and Remote Access MMC.
If you select it, you will find no information on it, because we need to enable the network interfaces we want this to work on. Go ahead and right click on RIP, then select New Interface.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 18
11. You can now add either interface, but not both as you can only approve one interface at a time. For this demo we are going to be working on Local Area Connection, select it and then click Ok.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 19
12. The RIP properties window now comes up to be configured.
There are many different options you can configure in this window, but unless you are using other types of routers in your network with RIP you can just leave the defaults in place. Go ahead and click Ok.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 20
13. Go ahead and repeat steps 11 and 12 for Local Area Connection 2, and then you should see both interfaces under RIP in the Routing and Remote Interface MMC.
Windows Server 2008 as a LAN Router Running RIP - 21
You have now configured the Windows Server 2008 virtual machine to function as a router between its two network cards. As I mentioned this can help you setup a segmented network that will allow you to emulate a corporate environment for testing and learning.
While this article focused on setting it up for a virtual environment, it would also work the same way if you configured this on a physical server.

How to Fix MBR in Window XP, Vista and 7

When the computer system is turned ON the first program that it loads is BIOS (Basic Input Output System).The BIOS also need a memory address from where it can load its Boot Program known as MBR(Master Boot Record) or  Master Boot Sector or Boot Sector which starts the further processing .The exact location of this boot record is cylinder 0, head 0 and sector 1 which is the first available space on harddisk. MBR contains all the necessary information for loading the operating system.

Some Error Messages and their Causes:

If your system’s  MBR gets corrupted your operating system will not load and this is commonly referred as Window Crash.MBR can become corrupted due to viruses in your operating system or sudden Power OFF.Following are the error messages you will get due to corrupt MBR
  • Error in loading operating system
  • Missing operating system
  • Invalid partition table
You can also get these error messages when you Multiboot your system i.e. installs two operating systems (like Window 7 & LINUX)  and uninstall any of them. Now when you try to load the other OS it goes the memory location where the boot loader of uninstalled operating system was present and try to load it. As there is no boot loader of that operating system then it will produce one of the above mentioned error messages.
When a user get these error messages then the first thought comes in his mind is that his windows has been corrupted and he has to reinstall a fresh copy of the operating system.
The thing is that the boot program of the installed OS is present at different memory location on the disk  and you have to map the boot loader with the operating system ,not to reinstall the fully OS again.

How to Fix MBR in Windows Operating System

Fix MBR for windows XP:

  • First of all, restart your computer and insert Windows XP setup disk in the CD drive.
  • Once the setup loads, you will see the following options just press R to repair your Windows.
111 How to Fix MBR in Window XP, Vista and 7
  • Once the Recovery Console loads up, press 1 which will corresponds to your Windows installation and hit Enter. Now type your Administrator password.
3 How to Fix MBR in Window XP, Vista and 7
  • Now in the command prompt window type fixmbr and press Enter. Your MBR will now be replaced with a new MBR. You can also run the fixboot command to repair the boot sector.
Note:- Make sure you only use these commands on a system where only one operating system has installed. If you run these commands where more than one operating system has installed then fixmbr and fixboot could mess up everything.

Fix MBR for windows Vista & 7:

  • First, insert Windows Vista or window 7 CD in the disk drive and press any key to boot from the disc.
  • Now Choose the language, time, currency etc and click Next. Now click on Repair Your Computer.
4 How to Fix MBR in Window XP, Vista and 7
  • Select the operating system to repair option and then click Next. Now in the System Recovery Options window choose the Command Prompt.
5 How to Fix MBR in Window XP, Vista and 7
  • For Window VISTA in the command prompt window type bootrec.exe and press Enter.
  • For Window 7 in the command prompt window type bootsect /nt60 C:\ and press Enter where C: is the disk drive where your operating system has installed. You can change this drive letter according to your installed operating system’s location.
  • Once done, eject the disc and restart your computer for the change to take effect.
That’s it now your operating system will boot normally without any problem.

How to Download Torrent Files with IDM:

  • Open  www.torrentz.eu .Search and Download the torrent file (.torrent) of your desired file from there.
112 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • Once you have downloaded that torrent file then go to the website www.torcache.net
  • Now upload that torrent file that you have just downloaded and click on the cache button.
122 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • This will generate a new torrent link of your file just copy that link.
131 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • Now go to the www.torrific.com and get register there if you don’t have account  otherwise login into your account.
  • In the text field paste that new torrent file that you have get in the 4th step and click on get button.
141 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • You will see all the torrent files that are present in that torrent . Click on initiate bittorrent transmission button.
151 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • Now all the files that are present in that torrent file will be available to download just click on any of the file that you want to download and IDM window will popup.
16 How to Download Torrent Files with IDM
  • Now Start Downloading your file.
You should use this method only if you are getting very poor speed with your torrent client because if you download it with IDM the link will not be resumable and you have to finish it without breaking your internet connection.

Creating and Deploying Active Directory Rights Management Services Rights Policy Templates Step-by-Step Guide


About this Guide

This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of creating and deploying Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) policy templates in a test environment. During this process you create a rights policy template, deploy this template to a client computer running Windows Vista® and Microsoft® Office Word 2007, and verify that the client computer can rights-protect a document by using the newly-created rights policy template.
Once complete, you can use the test lab environment to assess how AD RMS rights policy templates can be created with Windows Server® 2008 and deployed within your organization.
As you complete the steps in this guide, you will:
Create an AD RMS rights policy template.
Deploy the rights policy template.
Verify AD RMS functionality after you complete the configuration.
The goal of an AD RMS deployment is to be able to protect information, no matter where it is moved. Once AD RMS protection is added to a digital file, the protection stays with the file. By default, only the content owner is able to remove the protection from the file. The owner can grant rights to other users to perform actions on the content, such as the ability to view, copy, or print the file.

What This Guide Does Not Provide

This guide does not provide the following:
Guidance for setting up and configuring AD RMS in either a production or test environment. This guide assumes that AD RMS is already configured for a test environment. For more information about configuring AD RMS, see Windows Server Active Directory Rights Management Services Step-by-Step Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=72134).
Complete technical reference for AD RMS or deploying AD RMS templates within your organization. In a large organization, Systems Management Server (SMS) or Group Policy can provide a way to deploy AD RMS rights policy templates to several workstations at a time.

Deploying AD RMS in a Test Environment

We recommend that you first use the steps provided in this guide in a test lab environment. Step-by-step guides are not necessarily meant to be used to deploy Microsoft products without accompanying documentation and should be used with discretion as a stand-alone document. Before you start the steps in this guide, you will need to use the steps provided in Windows Server Active Directory Rights Management Services Step-by-Step Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=72134), also in a lab environment. That guide prepares the basic infrastructure for an AD RMS deployment, with an AD RMS cluster, AD RMS Logging database, and domain controller. This step-by-step guide builds on the previous guide, so it is important to complete it before starting this one. On completion of this step-by-step guide, you will have a working AD RMS rights policy template. You can then test and verify AD RMS rights policy template functionality through the simple task of restricting permissions on a Microsoft Office Word 2007 document with the rights policy template created in this guide.
The test environment described in this guide includes three computers connected to a private network and using the following operating systems, applications, and services:
Computer NameOperating SystemApplications and Services
ADRMS-SRVWindows Server 2008AD RMS, Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0, World Wide Web Publishing Service, Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ), and Windows Internal Database
CPANDL-DCWindows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1)Active Directory®, Domain Name System (DNS)
ADRMS-DBWindows Server 2003 with SP1Microsoft SQL Server™ 2005 Standard Edition
ADRMS-CLNTWindows VistaMicrosoft Office Word 2007 Enterprise Edition


The computers form a private intranet and are connected through a common hub or Layer 2 switch. This configuration can be emulated in a virtual server environment if desired. This step-by-step exercise uses private addresses throughout the test lab configuration. The private network ID 10.0.0.0/24 is used for the intranet. The domain controller is named CPANDL-DC for the domain named cpandl.com.
The following figure shows the configuration of the test environment:

Step 1: Creating a Shared Folder on the AD RMS Cluster


To ease administration of the rights policy templates, you can store AD RMS rights policy templates in a central location so that they can be copied to the AD RMS clients. Some distribution methods include using Systems Management Server, Group Policy, or manually copying the templates to the AD RMS client. In this guide, the rights policy templates are copied manually.Note
The AD RMS service account must have Write access to the rights policy template shared folder in order for the rights policy template export function to work correctly.
To create a shared folder for the AD RMS rights policy templates and set appropriate permissions for the AD RMS service account, do the following:To create an AD RMS rights policy templates shared folder
1. Log on to ADRMS-SRV as CPANDL\Administrator.
2. Click Start, click Computer, and then double-click Local Disk (C:).
3. Create a new folder named ADRMSTemplates. Click Organize, click New Folder, type the name ADRMSTemplates, and then press ENTER.
4. Right-click the ADRMSTemplates folders, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Sharing tab, and then click Advanced Sharing.
6. Select the Share this Folder check box, and then click Permissions.
7. Click Add, in the Enter the object names to select box type CPANDL\ADRMSSRVC, and then click OK.
8. In the Group or user names box, click ADRMSSRVC (ADRMSSRVC@cpandl.com), and then, in the Permissions for ADRMSSRVC box, select the Change check box in the Allow column.
9. Click OK twice.
10. Click the Security tab, and then click Edit.
11. Click Add, in the Enter the object names to select box type CPANDL\ADRMSSRVC, and then click OK.
12. Click ADRMSSRVC (ADRMSSRVC@cpandl.com), and then, in the Permissions forADRMSSRVC box, select the Modify check box in the Allow column, and then click OK.
13. Click Close.


Step 2: Creating an AD RMS Rights Policy Template


As mentioned earlier in this guide, AD RMS rights policy templates are created on the AD RMS cluster and then exported to a shared folder. If your users will be using the AD RMS-enabled application only when connected to the internal network, the templates can be accessed from the shared folder by the clients as needed. In this case, all AD RMS users should have Read access to this shared folder in order for them to use the rights policy template.
Alternatively, the templates can be copied from the shared folder to the client computers. This enables the templates to be used when users are not connected to the network, such as when traveling with a laptop or from another mobile device. Because the most common deployment is to copy the templates to the client computers, this is the approach explained in this guide.To create a new AD RMS rights policy template
1. Open the Active Directory Rights Management Services Administration console. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Rights Management Services.
2. In the Active Directory Rights Management Services Administration console, click LocalHost.
3. In the Tasks box in the Results pane, click Manage rights policy templates.
4. To enable exporting of the AD RMS rights policy templates, click Properties in the Actions pane.
5. Select the Enable export check box, type \\adrms-srv\ADRMSTemplates in the Specify templates file location (UNC) box, and then click OK.
6. In the Actions pane, click Create Distributed Rights Policy Template to start Create Distributed Rights Policy template wizard.
7. Click Add.
8. In the Language list, choose the appropriate language for the rights policy template.
9. Type CPANDL.COM CC in the Name box.
10. Type CPANDL.COM Company Confidential in the Description box, and then click Add.
11. Click Next.
12. Click Add, type employees@cpandl.com in The e-mail address of a user or group box, and then click OK.
13. Select the View check box to grant the EMPLOYEES@CPANDL.COM group Read access to any document created by using this AD RMS rights policy template.
14. Click Finish.


Step 3: Configuring the AD RMS client


The AD RMS client is included in the default installation of Windows Vista. Previous versions of the client are available for download for other Windows operating systems.
This guide assumes that an AD RMS cluster is already configured in a test environment. Additionally, extra configuration is required on the AD RMS client workstation so that the rights policy templates are accessible. To make the AD RMS rights policy templates accessible, you must copy the AD RMS rights policy templates to the client computer and create a registry entry that points to the location of the rights policy templates.
In order for the AD RMS client computer to locate the templates, you must add a registry entry and copy the AD RMS rights policy templates locally. To do this, you must complete the following steps before rights-protecting a document:To make AD RMS templates available to users on ADRMS-CLNT
1. Log on to ADRMS-CLNT as Nicole Holliday (nhollida@cpandl.com).
2. Click Start, type regedit.exe in the Start Search box, and then click the regedit.exe icon under Programs.
3. Expand the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\DRM
If DRM was not already created as a part of the key, you must create it manually.
4. Select DRM, click Edit, point to New, click Expandable String Value, and then type AdminTemplatePath.
5. Double-click the AdminTemplatePath registry value and type %UserProfile%\AppData\Microsoft\DRM\Templates in the Value data box where %UserProfile% equals C:\Users\<user name>, and then click OK.
6. Close Registry Editor.
7. Verify that the path C:\Users\nhollida\AppData\Microsoft\DRM\Templates\ is valid. If it is not, create the appropriate folders.
8. Click Start, type \\ADRMS-SRV\ADRMSTemplates in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
9. Copy the exported AD RMS rights policy templates from \\ADRMS-SRV\ADRMSTemplates to C:\Users\nhollida\AppData\Microsoft\DRM\Templates.
*Note
Copying the AD RMS rights policy templates to the client computer is not required if the rights policy templates do not have to be available offline.

Step 4: Verifying AD RMS Functionality using ADRMS-CLNT


To verify the functionality of the AD RMS deployment, you log on as Nicole Holliday and then restrict permissions on a Microsoft Word 2007 document by using the AD RMS rights policy template created earlier in this guide. This policy gives CP&L employees the ability to read the document but not to change, print, or copy. All other people have no access at all to the document. You then log on as Stuart Railson and verify that Stuart Railson, a member of the Employees group at CP&L, cannot print the document. To restrict permissions on a Microsoft Word 2007 document
1. Log on to ADRMS-CLNT as Nicole Holliday (nhollida@cpandl.com).
2. Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Office, and then click Microsoft Office Word 2007.
3. Type CP&L Employees cannot print this document on the blank document page, click the Microsoft Office button, point to Finish, point to Restrict Permission, click Restrict Permission as, select nhollida@cpandl.com in the Select User dialog box, and then click OK.
4. In the Permission dialog box, select the Restrict permission to this document check box, click Read, type the name of the user or group to be restricted. In this case, type employees@cpandl.com, and then click OK twice.
5. Click the Microsoft Office button, click Save As, and then save the file as \\ADRMS-DB\public\ADRMS-TST.docx.
6. Log off as Nicole Holliday.

Next, log on as Stuart Railson and open the document, ADRMS-TST.docx.To view a protected document
1. Log on as Stuart Railson (srailson@cpandl.com).
2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, and then click Microsoft Office Word 2007.
3. Click the Microsoft Office button, click Open, navigate to \\ADRMS-DB\public, and then double-click ADRMS-TST.docx.
The following message appears: "Permission to this document is currently restricted. Microsoft Office must connect to https://adrms-srv.cpandl.com/_wmcs/licensing to verify your credentials and download your permission."
4. Click OK.
The following message appears: "Verifying your credentials for opening content with restricted permissions…"
5. When the document opens, click the Microsoft Office button. Notice that the Print option is not available.
6. Click View Permission in the message bar. You should see that AD RMS rights policy template has been applied to this document.
