How to Enable Remote Desktop in Windows Server 2008 R2 - Enable Remote Desktop.JPGThe concept of Remote Desktop was first introduced with the release of Microsoft Windows 2000 (Professional and Server editions) which was then carried forward to all the successor versions of Microsoft-based operating systems. With the help of Remote Desktop administrators can manage remote computers by bringing their entire consoles on the local computer from where they have initiated the Remote Desktop sessions. By using Remote Desktop administrators can administer remote computers as easily and comfortably as they were physically present in front of the remote computers and were locally logged on to them. Since Remote Desktop allows administrators to manage multiple remote machines from single central location, it saves a decent amount of time that administrators would otherwise had to spend if there was no Remote Desktop feature available in the operating systems.

Understanding Virtualization Concepts - VMWareVirtualization is a process in which a physical computer a.k.a. host computer contains virtual machines that are stored in them in form of files. These virtual machines act exactly the way the physical computers do and can be mapped with the NICs of the host computers. Once mapped, the operating systems installed inside the virtual machines (Guest Operating Systems) can then communicate with the host computers as well as the network setups to which the host computers might be connected.

MD5 File Hasher 1.3 - MD5 File HasherThe hash function is a way of mapping a collection of information that can be various lengths in other values of fixed length. The values that the hash function gives are called hash values, codes, sums, checksums or simply hashes. MD5 is a cryptographic hash algorithm, which means that it takes information of arbitrary length and creates fixed lengths for it, a cryptographic hash value, in a way that any change of data (accidental or on purpose) leads to the change of that value.

Assigning Multiple DNS IP Addresses on Windows Server 2008 R2 - Multiple DNS ServersIn medium or large-scale organizations where there are several client computers connected to a network, administrators install multiple DNS servers in order to load balance the traffic and to reduce the burden on a single DNS server. Moreover, if there are multiple DNS servers configured in such network scenarios it is likely that administrators might have configured one DNS server as DNS forwarder and have configured other DNS servers to forward the queries to the forwarder. This is an efficient approach that almost all administrators take for error free and smooth name resolution process.
