Encrypted network traffic

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have an MSSQL 2000 server that has an SSL certificate. In the SQL Server network utility, 'Force protocol encryption' is checked. Looking at the traffic with Wireshark, it's no longer in plain text. However, the certificate is issued to say a.mydomain.com. If I create a dns record such that b.mydomain.com resolves to the same address and then use Query Analyzer to connect to b.mydomain.com everything still works. I get no sort of warning like I would if I used a web browser to visit an https site where the certificate had been issued to a different name. Is this to be expected? Regards Richard

SharePoint, FIM and AD network traffic

Hi, I have a small but can be a complicated question: I have a forrest with alot of dc's around the world. The most of them are on WAN. When I use the UPS service it will generate traffic, and it will look through all the Parent and Child domains. Is the load that is generated by FIM from scale 1(low) to 5(high) based on a single synch per week? Is the load that is generated on network from scale 1(low) to 5(high)? Could some one tell me more, or have some more info about the load that is generated by the UPS service? Regards

app.config dump of network traffic


I needed to trace some network traffic on my .Net application and found that you can modify the config file and dump traffic to a text file.

While that is great news for debugging, what is to keep any bloody soul from doing the same thing and dumping credit card traffic to a log file?

Using network login



Is anyone have sample code to set up log in page using network login?

For example: User Name(same as Network Login)

                     Password(Same as Network Login)

Your help is highly appreciated.

Toolbox: Analyze HTTP Traffic, Synchronize Databases, and More


Debugging Web applications can be a difficult process due to the logical, physical, and temporal differences between the mishmash of technologies that comprise such an application. For bugs that arise from the HTML and script received by the browser or in the transfer or request of a page's markup, developers often adopt archaic debugging techniques, such as using View Source and Notepad to scrutinize the contents received by the browser.

.NET Remoting: Secure Your .NET Remoting Traffic by Writing an Asymmetric Encryption Channel Sink


As .NET Remoting gains popularity in the enterprise space, it must meet business demands for trustworthy computing. Remoting traffic can be secured when objects are hosted in IIS, but when they aren't hosted in IIS, custom security solutions can be developed to secure them. This article provides an in-depth look at writing channel sinks for .NET. It also details the flow of data through custom channel sinks and explains the kinds of manipulations that can be performed on that data.

SENS: System Event Notification Services and WMI Enable Flexible, Efficient Mobile Network Computing


Networked applications must deal with a host of connection problems ranging from timeouts to congestion to unavailability. If these applications can check the current connection status and, when disconnected, cache transmissions, they become more efficient. Fortunately, both the System Event Notification System (SENS) and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) can send notifications to keep applications informed of network status. In this article, the author explains the use of several SENS interfaces, including ISensNetwork and ISensLogon, which trigger events for connects/disconnects and logons/logoffs, respectively. The author then shows how you can subscribe to each of these events, and follows with a discussion of when you might use WMI events instead.

Why does .NET Framework 4 client profile slow down boot time network creation?

I've been running a Windows XP sp3 KVM virtual machine for a long time now, and some recent update made the initial network startup go from a few seconds at boot time to around 90 seconds. Using Add/Remove program to uninstall recent updates points the finger at .NET Framework 4 client profile. With it installed, if I right click on network and ask for properties right after booting, there is a 90 second delay before the network dialog with the list of network interfaces finally appears. In addition, the network drive I have automounted at login is not accessible for the same 90 seconds. As an experiment, I tried going into the device manager and deleting the network interface, and if I reboot after that it takes 90 seconds for the new hardware wizard to appear. All these 90 second delays vanish if I remove this .NET update. The network comes up as soon as the system boots.

Neural Network Key

Hi I have never used the neural network mining algorithm before, but I want to see if I can build something that will accurately predict bookings for a company. I have monthly data of different metrics that I want to use as inputs and booking metrics that I want to predict. This mining algorithm does not allow for a date data type to be used as a key. So I made an identity column in the case table to use.   In Bids it allows me to create the mining structure and I select my ID column as the key, but when I go to try and process I get an error saying a key column is not defined.   Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks, Steve

How to avoid network problems while calling a webservice in a SQL CLR trigger?

Hi All, My Goal: DB synchronization between SQL server 2005 and Mysql database via web services. I have created a SQLCLR trigger, in which i'm calling a web service to sync/update remote (MYSQL) DB over a specific constraints. After getting the acknowledgment from web service i'm updating the sync flag to success (In SQL SERVER2005). If any network delay happens i am unable to know whether sync has done successfully or not. How to avoid network dependency here? Is there any reliable queuing mechanism available in sql server 2005 to eliminate dependency over network? I am looking any suitable service/approach in sql server 2005 that can take care of calling web services as asynchronously and update the status of sync flag irrespective of network. Thanks in advance if anyone provide the good approach as step by step in detail.

SQL Server Network Interfaces Error 26 - while failing over SQL Server 2008 R2

Before I explain the issue I am facing, I would like to say that I did read the post at  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sql_protocols/archive/2007/05/13/sql-network-interfaces-error-26-error-locating-server-instance-specified.aspx but in my case the problem is transient (lasts for approximately two minutes after a failover) so items 1-3 in the list of troubleshooting steps do not seem to make sense. As to 4 and 5, the named instances use non-default ports (2433 and 3433 respectively), so I do not know how to tailor the PortQry command for that. I tried  portqry.exe -n ServerA,2433-p UDP -e 1434 and  portqry.exe -n ServerA,2433 -p UDP -e 2434 and it failed both times with a "Failed to resolve name to IP address" while the server was up and serving database requests The same thing happened when I tried it with the failover server as well. ***The issue I am facing*** I am using Enterprise Library 4.1 to connect to a SQL Server 2008 R2 database with a mirror. My connection string itself is as below (with dummy values for all fields): "Data Source=ServerA;Failover Partner=ServerB;Initial Catalog=DBName;User ID=uid;Password=pwd;Connect Timeout=5" Sample .NET code is as below (with modifications to instantiate all variables locally to provide context): SqlDatabase db = new SqlDatabase(ConnectionString); SqlConnection cn = (SqlConnection)db

OLE DB Error: Network-Related or Instance-Specific while Deploying SSAS 2008 Cube

Hi, I encountered the below listed error while attempting to deploy SSAS 2008 DB: Error 1 OLE DB error: OLE DB or ODBC error: Login timeout expired; HYT00; A network-related or instance-specific error has occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. Server is not found or not accessible. Check if instance name is correct and if SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. For more information see SQL Server Books Online.; 08001; Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [5]. ; 08001.  0 0  I am running a standalone MSSQL 2008 named instance on Windows Server 2008 R2. Here are the steps I have taken but yet the issue is not resolve: 1) Enable Remote connections on the server 2) Enable TCP\IP 3) SQL Browser is Running 4) Set Firewall Inbound Exceptions for SQL Browser, Default Port 1433, UDP Port 1434 5) Using Management Studio I can successfully connect to the MSSQL named instance from the app server 6) I can ping I MSSQL box from the app server 7) Read and implemented all steps in the MSDN post below: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sql_protocols/archive/2007/05/13/sql-network-interfaces-error-26-error-locating-server-instance-specified.aspx Thanks for your help.
