Write issue via Samba from Windows

I found this command at times solves issue when nothing seems to work when configuring Samba on Linux to allow Windows users to write to shares. The command is:

setsebool -P samba_export_all_rw=1

Now I have to work out if this commnd has side effects against security but for my purposes at the moment this is not much of an issue.

Windows Time Issues Revisted

Well had yet another time related issue. This time I needed something that Windows just does not give me right out of the box – simple control of time updates. Yes you can fiddle with the w32tm command (check out my previous rambling on 32tm) and do all sort of fancy things and detailed settings. But if you want to set and forget certain services related to time updates well Microsoft needs to give us a tool like “NetTime“.

This little tool provides simple time update and management and can run on pretty much all flavors of Windows and Window Servers.

So next time you need to do what should be easy – well it can be easy with a great tool. NetTime.

Uploading multiple files via ASP.Net 4.5

I often in my developer need come across someone who needs/wants to upload multiple files. In the past I had to resort to commercial solutions such aspuploader. But in version 4.5 of .Net Microsoft finally supports multiple file uploads right out of the box. If you couple that with a generic handler you can upload loads of files at once.

The original article that shows all the code can be found here: Uploading Multiple Files Using jQuery and Generic Handler in ASP.Net 4.5

Kudos to Nimit Joshi for sharing this.
