    Post Your Network! (56K = Possibly)

    I don't think there's been a thread like this on Hexus before has there? Seeing as we've shown off our case mods, workstations, cars, etc, why don't we show off our networks?

    Let's not take the pee with regards image size (like in the other "post your xxxx" threads)

    Edit by Moby
    - If the pics are too big I'll change them to links
    - lets keep chatter down in this thread , I wanna see hard core cabling and other uber geeky stuff If you got a question about someones setup, please post it in a new thread

    Thanks for your time , now back to the pics !

    Image is pulled straight from my web server, so is up to date as long as I maintain it, but the text above will go out of date occasionally

    Big power-chomping server running Windows Server 2008R2 SP1 with the Hypervisor role added has now been replaced by an ultra-SFF Dell Optiplex 780 with Hyper-V Server 2008R2 (free hypervisor from MSFT).

    VMs running DC and web server roles migrated over to new hypervisor box, VHDs now hosted on iSCSI LUNs on the ReadyNAS device.
    ReadyNAS also natively sharing the printer/scanner/copier, SMB shares for streaming media & storing digital photos, and running Logitech Media Server for the Squeezebox.

    SAQ (Sometimes Asked Questions):
    1. Why have a 100Mbps switch between the router and the Internet?
    There are 2 public IPs available and the router takes just 1, so I have the option to hook a laptop to the dirty side of the router for external route testing or name resolution if anything crops up (or if there should be a whacky program that simply won't or can't work through NAT/UPnP).
