Q&A


Q: When I double-click on the file a window comes up and disappears immediately. What's wrong?

A: You must run the file from a Command Prompt.

Q: How do I configure my Cisco router to block directed broadcast pings?

A: IOS 12.0 and higher blocks them by default, otherwise you have to change the configuration for each interface to "no ip directed-broadcast".

Q: I have a question that is not covered here. Where can I get help?

A: Send me your question. I can't promise that I will have time to answer, but I'll do my best.
