I updated my iPhone to iOS Beta 6 a couple weeks back and ever since I have not been receiving visual voicemail notifications. Initially I thought people were just not leaving me voicemails but once I finally called into voicemail by holding the number one on my iPhone keypad to check voicemail I realized I had 25 voicemails. Once they were all cleared out I moved on the trying to fix the visual voicemail issue which turns out is really easy to resolve by following the below steps.
Cisco devices running the Cisco IOS have three types of ways to display passwords in the device configuration which include Type 0, Type 5, and Type 7. Below we describe all three methods of storing passwords in the Cisco IOS device configuration and how to obtain the password from each method either by simply reading the password, by quickly converting the password from the Cisco defined encryption algorithm, or by cracking MD5 UNIX password hashes.
I had been wanting to jailbreak my iPhone 4 for quite awhile but since I had upgraded to Apple iOS release 4.2.1 there was not an untethered jailbreak available at the time and since I typically turn my iPhone completely off I didn’t want to deal with the untethered jailbreak. So needless to say when GreenPois0n rc5 was released I was pretty excited. GreenPois0n rc5 made it extremely easy to jailbreak iPhone’s running iOS 4.2.1. After running it for around a month now though I noticed that I really don’t install enough applications outside of what is available via the iTunes App Store to warrant the jailbreak and especially because I have personally noticed that with my iPhone jailbroken it had slowed down a bit. Not only had it slowed down but my battery appeared to be draining much quicker which I assume was from more processes running. I made the decision a couple days ago to roll back to the stock iPhone 4.2.1 firmware to see if my phone started running more efficiently. Below are instructions for rolling back the GreenPois0n firmware on an iPhone 4 to the Apple iOS 4.2.1 firmware release.
While working on the computer shop network I had to modify the configuration on our switch which is a Cisco Catalyst 2950. After making a bunch of changes I was testing things to make sure all was working as expected however after taking a break and logging back into the 2950 it appeared that all of the changes made had been reverted. I was assuming the Catalyst 2950 had lost power briefly which means all of the changes were lost since they had not been saved to the startup config yet. To verify my assumption I needed to look at the amount of time the switch had been up however “uptime” is not a valid iOS command. Below is information on the command used to verify uptime on a Cisco Catalyst 2950.
A couple days ago I was working on the network at the computer shop and ran into an issue configuring the Cisco Catalyst 2950 switch we have on part of the network. The goal was to set up three VLAN’s to segregate traffic on three segments of the network that each have their own purpose. One of the VLAN’s is used by the employees, one VLAN used for the public, and the third VLAN used to host servers that provide various services. I was in a rush to minimize downtime when I was configuring the access to the 2950 switch itself and attempted to assign an IP address to two of the VLAN’s. Below I explain the details of the issue that caused as well as an explanation of why this won’t work.
