can not open anandtech forums

I can not get to anandtech forums. Can get to other sites including Linux Mint.

Can someone test to see if it is working for you ?

Thanks.

Re: Evolution will not receive emails on high security setting

Redlined: I did more trial and error this morning and I think I have it set so that it works. Don't ask me why (maybe you can tell me) but seems the only difference in the MEDIUM firewall choice and the HIGH firewall choice is that the high choice turns off both incoming and outgoing on DNS service ...

Re: Evolution will not receive emails on high security setting

Redlined: Verizon says that they are supposedly auto updating the firmware on the D-link, however, when I see a release date on the configuration interface of way back in year 2013, that tells me that either they are not doing so or more probably that there are not (and are not going to be) any upda...

Re: Evolution will not receive emails on high security setting

Redlined: You say "that router "D-Link DSL-2750B" you will see this past year quite a few hits showing it is old and susceptible to metasploit and the satori worm because of two year old vulnerabilities".

Re: Evolution will not receive emails on high security setting

Redlined:

It is a "D-Link DSL-2750B Board".

I am thinking that what I need to do is under the port triggering section of the Firewall section,
however, I am not exactly sure what all of the parameters should be for the various fields and
I am hesitate to start guessing.

Thanks.

Joe: Thanks for your reply. The Max security choice for router configuration says that for inbound it is REJECT but that can be overridden by remote administration settings, however when I go to remote admin settings I see several ports choices like 80, 8080 but there is NO port setting for 995 - po...

Re: Installing Mint 19.1

19.1 is in beta testing right now. When it comes out of beta, you'll be able to move from 19 to 19.1 via Update Manager. If it is BETA, then shouldn't the listing for it on the download site be labeled as BETA ? Sorry, I see that the various versions are marked as beta, should probably have that ma...

Installing Mint 19.1

I see that Mint 19.1 is now on the download page, however
it was my understanding that 19.1 was going to be available
thru Update Manager. I don't seem to see anything regarding
19.1 on Update Manager. Is this to be available in UM to bring
a version 19 installation up to 19.1 ?

Thanks.

Re: Why would you want to DISABLE networking

I turn off the 'net when doing installs, because a lot of times, it just screws up the worx. I want the software to install in its' original state as released, without any updates period. I will then run that software to make an observation as to whether I want it or not.... I also make a Timeshift...

Why would you want to DISABLE networking

Network manager has option to disable either networking or wi-fi, depending on device type. What would be the reason(s) that one would want to have networking or wi-fi disabled, i.e. For what reason(s) would you want to limit your ability to connect to the Internet ? I know that if you had applicati...

Thunderbolt 3 technology

I noticed that this morning there was a Linux Mint update for Thunderbolt 3.

Can anyone tell me if desktop motherboard makers (and in particular Dell)
have motherboards (which can be purchased as a separate item towards
building a system) which are Thunderbolt 3 capable ?

Thanks.

Re: Utility for formatting SD video cards in Linux Mint 19

@wpshooter Which model do you have? The reason I ask is that I arbitrarily downloaded the manual to the Strike Force 5PXD and it shows that when you perform a Delete All, it formats the card too (see last paragraph). Shutter_050.jpg I've found that deleting/formatting cards within a camera is the b...

Re: Utility for formatting SD video cards in Linux Mint 19

Maybe a silly question but don't the cameras have an option to format SD cards? My understanding from Browning Trail Cameras is that the camera does not format the card - only has the ability to delete / wipe the data stored/saved on the card. I also have a Spypoint camera that does not either form...

Re: Utility for formatting SD video cards in Linux Mint 19

To follow up, I tried formatting some of the SD cards using the Linux Mint DISK utility
(the long version) and when I took them back out to the Browning trail cameras to try, the cameras
would not even recognize them, so looks like it is back to good of Gparted.
