What You Can Do if Windows Updates are Too Slow


Windows Update is known as a relatively reliable way for installing updates for most Microsoft products. Normally, it can be done automatically with minimum intervention by user. However, the number of updates has grown, and as of now Windows 7 needs more than 200 updates to be installed. 

Maximizing Remote Access And Remote Desktop Security

VNC and OpenSSH


Remote access is obviously a very sensitive (often we’d call it intimate) matter. So, security is a major concern here.

We traditionally welcome the new mildly obtrusive offer from Microsoft. This time, of course, we are urged to upgrade to Windows 10. Not only are we urged, but rather Windows 10 makes broadband haste to our PCs, without much ado (or permission).


We couldn’t let this pass unattended, so here’s a quick how-to on removing the unwelcome guest.

IPv6 and What It Brings To The Table

IPv6 is a network layer protocol which provides addressing and routing between hosts in a network. This is a new version that will supersede the older one (IPv4) someday. It also brings new features and aims to solve some problems, including the notorious depletion of available addresses for hosts. This is the main problem that exists today with IPv4.

Making Internet Access Safer: DNS Security

Those technologies are not an exception. One of the core parts of the Internet is the Domain Name System. DNS does have certain issues but the respective organizations are working hard to continuously improve it. Below we’ll explain what DNSCrypt is and how it helps users, and we’ll provide instructions how to set it up.
