For those new to message boards please try to follow a few simple rules when posting your question.
Choose the correct forum for your message. Posting a VB.NET question in the C++ forum will end in tears.
Be specific! Don't ask "can someone send me the code to create an application that does 'X'. Pinpoint exactly what it is you need help with.
Keep the subject line brief, but descriptive. eg "File Serialization problem"
Keep the question as brief as possible. If you have to include code, include the smallest snippet of code you can.
Be careful when including code that you haven't made a typo. Typing mistakes can become the focal point instead of the actual question you asked.
Do not remove or empty a message if others have replied. Keep the thread intact and available for others to search and read. If your problem was answered then edit your message and add "[Solved]" to the subject line of the original post, and cast an approval vote to the one or several answers that really helped you.
If you are posting source code with your question, place it inside <pre></pre> tags. We advise you also check the "Encode "<" (and other HTML) characters when pasting" checkbox before pasting anything inside the PRE block, and make sure "Use HTML in this post" check box is checked.
Be courteous and DON'T SHOUT. Everyone here helps because they enjoy helping others, not because it's their job.
Please do not post links to your question into an unrelated forum such as the lounge. It will be deleted. Likewise, do not post the same question in more than one forum.
Do not be abusive, offensive, inappropriate or harass anyone on the boards. Doing so will get you kicked off and banned. Play nice.
If you have a school or university assignment, assume that your teacher or lecturer is also reading these forums.
No advertising or soliciting.
We reserve the right to move your posts to a more appropriate forum or to delete anything deemed inappropriate or illegal.
Just wondering what others are using for log analysis, metrics, reporting. My company is thinking of using LogRhythm and from what I've heard its not so great at the analystics piece but is good on security. What tools do you guys use for troubleshooting, analysis, metrics and general health reporting?
The organization I am working for is looking at largely automating their "onboarding" process (hiring new employees and getting them into the system). However, one of my big "question marks" regarding this project involves the wealth of legal and other forms the employee has to fill out (I-9 for example).
The organization wants (a) these forms to be able to be completed digitally, (b) information that we have previously captured (name, address, etc) to be pre-populated, (c) the user to be able to complete it at home if necessary, and (d) some way to gather both the manager's and employees signatures.
First, I am curious if this is possible without running into a host of legal issues. Also, what might the best approach to forms be? Would it be fine to create a typical HTML form, and then maybe use the data captured there to populate a PDF version of the various forms (such as I-9) or what?
Thanks for the response. Just to clarify, I am definitely not expecting specific legal advice, I am merely curious, if anyone has experience with a similar project, if, as a general rule, it is possible to to complete US government forms electronically (being that they typically require a signature). For example, when I filed my taxes, I believe I could fill most off it out in PDF form; however, I still had to physically print and sign it.
Every year I've done an e-file tax return, I've used a digital signature. It's definitely a question for legal, though, as the laws and policies governing what is acceptable for digital signatures is going to heavily influence implementation.
You're also setting yourself up to manage PII, so please let me be the first to welcome you to the wonderful world of HIPAA.

First for "local" traffic if the adapters are in different networks with unique address ranges then the decision is based on the target IP address as to which network to use, logical really.
For external addresses not within any of the networks it will tend to be in order of metrics, for some reason the last network added (say you plug in a cable whilst you are on wifi) seems to get pushed to top priority which may be decided on the speed and stability of the cabled network and that it can see the internet or might just be cabled is better than wifi.
To set individual metrics; Open Adapter Properties, double-click IPv4 protocol and click the Advanced button bottom right, there you can set the metrics for IPv4 on that adapter, untick Automatic Metrics and set the adapter you want to be high priority to the lowest value and all the other adapters to higher numbers in order you want them to be searched.
Caveat is that Win 10 ignores this and no matter how you try sets it back to automatic, think it is an open issue at MS.
I tried switching off IPV6 but it didnt work it shows "DNS request timed out timeout was 2 seconds" almost every time these is the DNS communication as captured by wireshark when I type 'nslookup' and open the program

(first field is the packet number,second:time,third:source IP fourth:dest IP fifth:protocol sixth:length seventh:description) why is my gateway's name appended on facebook.com (facebook.com.DSL2740B) when I type set type=mx or set type=all the MX and ANY queries are sent and there is no reply any help ??
why is my gateway's name appended on facebook.com (facebook.com.DSL2740B)
This is because it is defined in the DNS Suffix Search List (type 'ipconfig /all' to see what is set). This list is mainly for resolving hosts in your local domain (no need to specify full qualified domains).
To avoid this you can use the nosearch option or append a period (but I'm not sure if using a period is supported by Windows nslookup):
Regarding the timeouts there may be multiple reasons. There may be for example firewalls blocking requests (on your system, on the gateway, or even by your ISP). It may be also a DNS server that responds with delays due to high system or network load.
Did you never got an answer or is it working sometimes (especially after sending the same query again)?
When sending the same query again, the DNS server on your gateway should have stored the result in his local cache meanwhile so that he can answer without forwarding the query.
You should also try to use a known DNS server as suggested by Richard:
nslookup facebook.com. 188.8.131.52
This avoids forwarding the query through the DNS server of your gateway / DSL router to the DNS server of your ISP and should be therefore much faster.
well the DNS server address default is my routers address I changed it to my ISP's DNS server's address and everything works well any idea why this happened only on nslookup while the rest of DNS worked fine ? also : it happened only on one router I moved to another house and it is working with any setting
