Firewall help

07 September 2017 - 02:03 PM

I am currently trying to setup some permissions for a firewall on a TP-LINK TL-R480T modem, I am trying to only allow Outlook through the firewall, but i want to block office 365 from pinging the microsoft servers. Would anyone know what ports i would need to allow through the firewall to only allow outlook strictly?

Setup is for on boats where on one of the wan connections on the modem, the computers can connect to the satellite internet but have very limited access to keep bills down.

Looking for Windows Tablets for work

23 March 2017 - 02:55 PM

Hi there guys, Currently in negotiations with my boss to get some new equipment to replace our old IBM lenovo laptops.

We are looking for something similar to the Gigabyte S1080 in spec maybe a quad core instead of a dual core and would much prefer a up gradable 2.5inch hdd/ssd. 
Must be able to run Windows 7 preferably otherwise Windows 10.
Must have USB, Ethernet, and SD card slot, Also sim card slot preferred.
Must also have Bluetooth
A serial port would be a massive bonus but not needed as long as we have USB ports.

Hoping for something under $1000 mark so that we could potentially buy 2 or 3.

We would mainly be running serial monitor apps and adobe reader. possible Microsoft office- Word excel and outlook. 

Would be great if someone had some recommendations or experiences with anything related.

Currently looking at the Microsoft Surface 3. 



GTX 960 Strix 2gb Working but not working

20 January 2017 - 03:18 PM

So i recently got a GTX 960 Strix cheap - $50 i knew it had a problem.

So what is happening is that there is always red lines flickering on screen at all times, They disappear when you open something up over them but then re appear a few minutes after you close the window. They do move when i mouse over them as well. 

The drivers install the nvidia installer completes fine but does not seem to install drivers, Like they are installing and then immediately being deleted. 

Device manager only picks up a (VGA compatible device) But nothing is available when you check properties.

The red lines only seem to be present when i am using 32 bit true color setting, as when i change to 16 bit they are completely gone, But the issues are still in device manager.

I have looked at trying to update the bios on the GPU however GPU-Z will not pick up the graphics card.

Has anyone had this issue, or possibly know a FIX?


I will upload some images when i get home and can plug my phone into my PC.
