The secret Behind the God Mode is simple. Windows signs certain folder with unique string which is Windows Class Identifiers. This has been since Windows Vista , I am not sure of XP or older version of OS.  These specific folder can be found on Registry . Here is snap shot.

Let Windows 7 Take Care of Default Printer


      Every time you reach to home from office and you have important document to print. Now I know the classic way is to press Ctrl+P and select printer and print…

Humm… how about Location aware printing where your windows will automatically select the printer for you so that you do not need to switch in between different printers.

Here how you do:

  • Click on “Windows Orb” and then click on “Devices and Printers”.
  • On “Printer and faxes”  on menu bar click on “Manage Default printers”.
  • Click on “Change my default printer when I change networks”, specify default Printer for each network

how to host php on IIS 7.5

Php application can be hosted on IIS web server by using FastCGI Module that can be found in IIS. Here I am using Windows 7 as my IIS web server. Same is for server 2008 R2. Remember R2 has IIS ver7.5 ditto Windows 7.

First you  need to install IIS in your server, make sure that you have installed CGI feature while installation.


Now you need to Install and Configure the php to run for IIS.

You may go to http://www.php.net/downloads.php and download the php zip file for windows.

Unzip the downloaded file somewhere like C:\php . Now rename the php.ini-recommanded to php.ini .

Now eopne php.ini and then uncomment and modify to following:

set fastcgi.impersonate = 1

Set cgi.force_redirect=0

Set cgi.fix=pathinfo=0

open_basedir and edit to your desired directory

Set extension_dir to the directory where php extension reside in this case C:\php\ext

Enable following by uncommenting:



Here your Configuration part is over. Now you need  to handle to php Request. As I have mention before we will be using FastCGI for this purpose here.

Open your IIS manager. “inetmgt” Now double click on “Handle Mappings”


Now add Module Mapping and point phpCGI.exe for php files.

Now here what you need to do.

module mapping

You will get a dialogue box stating FastCGI application. Click on “Yes” and you are good to go for php apps.

You may want to create a php info file in wwwroot  folder like this <?php phpinfo(); ?> and test.

Ping Dropped in Hyper-V in Server 2008 R2 of NLB

   When you  Configure your NLB host in unicast mode you wont be able to access dedicated IPs of your Guest VMs. However here a by Spoofing your VMs MAC IDs you can access your NLB host. By default your this will be turn off.


You can enable the Spoofing of MAC addresses.

Remember: Enabling this option will give ability to VMs to  Override their MAC and send and receive traffic using any MAC ids.

Virtual switch in Hyper is Layer-2 switches. hence if Malicious VMs start sending packet with MAC owned by other machine then it may cause security flaws (DOS attacks).
