So at the moment we’re testing a lot of new devices in combination with our XenApp 6.5/NetScaler infra, which ofcourse is a lot of fun. I ran into this problem, which I thought was poorly documented. So there we go…. You get the well known error “You do not have the proper encryption level to access this Session” when firing up your app. using the new HTML5 receiver (eg. with Chrome or Opera or Firefox).

So after following my tutorial about installing CentOS you’re facing your Linux prompt and wondering… Now what?? Well if that is your case you might need some graphics after all. I’m not a big fan of the Linux graphical tools cause they might ruin some of your configuration too. Eg. setup iptables and then modify something in the firewall tool. Say bye bye to your firewall config. Anyway, I today asked my Linux teacher how you can upgrade your existing installation with a desktop. His exact answer was: “I don’t know, but why should you? A new installation only takes 10 minutes…..” sigh. Like that was the question. So I did some googling and like many thing this one is well documented.

In the past I ran into some hard-to-troubleshoot problems with Linux based systems and it’s nice to realize that things are now getting clearer. So I tought it would be a good idea to write a few tutorials for my blog, starting with the basics. How to install a CentOS (which is exactely the same as Red Hat Enterprise (only it lacks the enterprise support)) webserver which you can then use to host apps (like SickBeard/CouchPotato/Headphones/maybe some nzb-indexers (I’m full of ideas!!). I even took the time to take a lot of screenshots. So let’s start!

Tutorial: Setting up SSTP on Windows Server 2012 (part 1) – prereqs
In this tutorial I’ll write about how to setup SSTP on Windows Server 2012 in a limited lab environment. It’s not a tough job, although you need some basic RRAS, DNS and Certificate knowledge. Before we start the prereqs: In my lab I use a domain controller which also is my enterprise root CA. My RRAS server is also my Online Responder. I’m going to assume you already installed these roles.
