    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    This is where virtual machines really make a huge difference. I did an upgrade of seven Server 2008 R2 file servers to Server 2016 in half a day. Since they were VM's with data on their own VHDX...

    Re: Windows 11 is Here

    They did say that, but at the same time the Support Lifecycle site showed an end of support date of 2025 for Windows 10, putting it in cadence with all other OS versions.

    Still trying to figure out how Gates gets blamed for what Microsoft does when he hasn't had any role in the company in years. Might as well blame Steve Wozniack for what Apple does.

    You've understood correctly. The PCI card connects to the motherboard like a video card or other add-on component. I used to keep one or two of them in stock just in case of a bad NIC, or for an...

    Re: Need some advice on learning networking

    Sounds like a PCI Ethernet card is in your future. Long term it's probably the best solution since that way you can at least be sure the card supports Server 2016.

    Re: SCAN TO FOLDER

    NetBIOS is only needed if you're using the legacy SMB port of 139, which is SMB over WINS. WINS and NetBIOS are both pretty much dead protocols since DNS has replaced them.
