LAN messaging with XMPP protocol (jabber) to chat or to copy and paste links and texts in rdp sessions

Here is how I satisfied my need to have a LAN messaging program, not really to chat with other users on the same LAN, which I could do, but to copy and paste links or texts between a rdp client and a rdp server when copy and paste from/to clipboard does not work in rdp sessions, for instance with some Android rdp clients.

These are the programs I used:

Create a VPN to connect from an Android client to a home Windows XP server

If you want to connect to your home computer using rdp when you are not home and are connected to the internet, you have to open a port on your firewall; changing the standard rdp port on both your server and your firewall increases your security (or decreases your unsecurity); configuring a Virtual Private Network (VPN) increases your security even more, and you can close the rdp port on your firewall: in fact, when you connect your remote client to your vpn, your remote client comes inside your LAN so that you can remote access your server from inside the LAN.

.htaccess: an example of the Apache per-directory configuration file

Using bloxsom as my weblog designing application, I had to provide some settings to the Apache .htaccess configuration file to fine-tune the usage of my site:

  1. tell Apache to load index.cgi in addition to the default index.htm
  2. rewrite the requested address adding www. if it's omitted
  3. rewrite the requested address adding index.cgi if it's omitted
  4. and for bandwidth reduction, forbid robots from crawling some pages

Setting ClearType when fonts are too much thin

With my LCD monitor, a LG 1718S, the characters appear too much narrow on the screen, especially using Excel sheets: I tried all OSD settings but the characters are so much thin that they're almost invisible. I got the best results setting the ClearType effect:
Control Panel, Display, Appearance, Effects, Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts: Clear Type
This way the characters appear a little fatter and they're better looking too.
Normal ClearType
Verdana without ClearType Verdana with ClearType
Spreadsheet without ClearType Spreadsheet with ClearType

Yes, I use light grey background color :)

Remove XP Pro or Win Server 2003 bandwidth limit

Run Group Policy (gpedit.msc) and go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> QoS Packet Scheduler and change "Limit reservable bandwidth" to "Enabled" with a value of 0%. By default it appears disabled but read the description and you'll discovered it's enabled with a value of 20%.

Seeing MySQL queries, just like MS SQL Profiler

Just execute mysqld with the --log[=filename] or -l[=filename] command-line option. If filename is omitted, hostname.log will be created in the mysql data directory.
Or edit my.ini adding log=filename line (i.e. if you use WAMP).
Then restart mysqld.

WAMP & Perl - Windows Apache, MySQL, PHP with CGI scripts written in Perl

I need Perl to run Blosxom, an open source and free CGI script to create blogs.
So I installed WAMP5 1.6.4a and ActivePerl 5.8.8.817 with MSI installer.
I already have my site on my disk, so I told my site directory to WAMP during the setup procedure and then I pointed my browser to http://localhost/index.cgi but it displayed the cgi instead of executing it.
This is what I did to make it work:

Running PHP scripts from command-line with WAMP (Windows Apache, MySQL, PHP)

On my old pc I installed Apache, MySQL and PHP singularly, and I made some PHP scripts to be runned from command-line, like this:

c:\php\php -f myscript.php
On my new pc I installed WAMP5 1.6.4, all was running fine (phpMyAdmin, my local website, php scripts pointed to by the browser) but php scripts launched by command-line reported
Fatal error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in myscript.php
Obviously I changed the php path to c:\wamp\php\php but with no results.
Solution: change the command to
c:\wamp\php\php -c c:\wamp\apache2\bin -f myscript.php
The -c option tells php to search php.ini in the directory specified, and that's needed because WAMP puts php.ini in Apache bin directory, while with a PHP regular installation php.ini is located in the php.exe directory.
