xx stickies across internet
« Thread started on: Sep 9th, 2010, 12:00pm »

Hi
I got stickies to work across the internet from one pc to another. Ya!
Now i want to be able to go from one PC across the 'net to multiple pcs at a single site. (Think of remote office worker) I can get it to sticky from the remote site to one pc in the office, but can't seem to get it to do different machines.
I am thinking this might be a firewall issuehuh I did open up port to let stickies through.
Any ideas?
Thanks

I guess the remote site has just one IP address - it's a DSL connection, or something like that?

In that case, open a second or third port on the firewall/router, and port forward to different machines internally. Some routers will allow you to specify an internal IP and port, in which case you can leave the internal instances of Stickies on the default port, others only forward to an IP address, in which case you'll need to move the port on which Stickies is listening, and then differentiate between the internal machines by port.

I guess my default answer has to be that if you don't understand the risks of opening a firewall port, then don't do it.

Don't get me wrong, as best I can tell it's quite safe ... but it's a security decision which really only you should come to. It's a bit like leaving your home windows unlocked when you go out. I can advise you whether it's a good idea based on my experience, but it ultimately comes down to what you think is best.

These posts are plainly nonsens.There are a lot of them lately on the forum with just a link as signature.

I wonder if they come from the same IP?

Check out wikipedia's very nice article on "forum spam". There are a few helpful suggestions in the article, all beyond my control. This forum has become infected at the rate of at least one per day. rolleyes & cry

Why do you think that "Sabrina Merchant" is a spammer?

The profile has a number of associated data with it - AIM and email addresses. The question is related to the topic, and so indicates that it's a human being.

There are messages posted which are clearly adverts or from an automated script, and I tend to remove those as they add nothing, but I don't see Sabrina as a spammer, just as a user who has only posted once to the forum?

Hmm, hold on, I just spotted the link in the sig.

Do you think I should nuke the posts?

I run the risk of being rather rude to someone genuine who asks a real query, and who links to their site in their sig...

If a fly in the house starts inviting its friends and falling into the soup you close the window. smiley

You could remove the signature option (or only links maybe) from the profile.

Code is provided for customizing the forum at the support center forum .

I do not see the purpose of these posts i guess no person will click on the links but the content of the posts is totally meaningless and just cobbled together from earlier posts by other members.The only problem will be if he/it/she starts sending pm's because the signature is included.



Best regards,

Not to diminish the legit way in which this thread was started by stylaster......but this thread was hijacked by....

Do I have a "comrade-in-arms" against spam? Flies in the soup.......a disgusting image which pretty well goes along with the potential/ultimate harmful intentions of entities which create spam.

Perhaps profile editing (removing links) is really not enough. Wouldn't a more permanent solution (code for customizing the forum) be much better? It would be ideal if some customizations of this forum would make it not such a tasty soup for flies in the future.

You have a point there Cynthia,maybe Tom could split off this "offtopic" to its own bloodspattered thread.


I do not have a login for the support forum but you can ask for code to customize the forum if you register.

The first one removes the sig area from the profile and also blanks any existing sig. It goes in the main footers only :-



The topic i was looking at is disabling signatures on the profile page.The javascript to be put in the header/footer section is here.
It was returned using google advanced search so the formatting seems to be a bit off.

An irony.......the forum of conforums has had its own issues with spam.

If you don't ever actually use that huge skin, perhaps you could hang it on your wall as a decoration.
