Team Viewer Installation

Team Viewer Installation

Maybe this is a simple guide but it doesn’t matter if I make it for those who don’t understand. I forgot to start when to use this program, but among the programs I have tried (RADMIN, Remote Desktop and VNC) this is the easiest. The requirements are quite easy, just an internet connection, for the Operating System, many have supported it, I’ve only tried it for Windows and Mac only.

In this guide there will be 2 positions, I as the party you want to remote (steps 1 – 3, additional automatic access in steps 4 – 6), I as the remote party (step 7)

Immediately I started the installation method (this guide uses Teamviewer version 14) :

  1. Download the application at https://download.teamviewer.com/full and click Save, wait until it’s finished and open the application where it is stored, click twice to start the installation.

  1. Click Run, select Basic installation and Personal / Non-commercial use then click Accept – finish.

  1. If the following image appears, the process has finished, I can provide the ID and password to the colleague who wants to remote the device.

  1. At point 3, the remote process is still done manually (must always provide information to the party who wants to remote), because the password will change when the program is restarted, it is quite troublesome if it is not always near the device. If you want the device to be automatically updated, you need further steps, namely Unattended Access, check the list on Start TeamViewer with Windows and Grant easy access.
  2. On Grant easy access, a pop up will appear, enter the email and password that has been registered or if you don’t have an account, click Create account. In this case because I already have an account, then I select click Assign. The Team Viewer will send a confirmation email before giving that access.

  1. I will open a confirmation email that is sent as authentication on the device that I want to access, click Add to trusted devices, it will open a new page, click Trust and the device can be accessed automatically.

 

  1. If I want to see the device I have given Unattended Access, click the icon like the contact image, re-enter the email and password that has been registered.

 

Note: if you do steps number 6 and 7 on the same device, it will immediately be able to log in without getting a confirmation email first, but if it is from a different device, it will get information such as step 6.

  1. To delete the account from the device, click Extras – Option, on the General tab – Account assignment, click Remove, and Remove again as a confirmation.

Good luck.

Internet Speedtest

Internet Speedtest

Actually I am confused to give the right title in this article, but hopefully you can understand it from the explanation I gave. At this time I will discuss about internet bandwidth that is not suitable than what I should get from an ISP.

Previously I had a similar article but it was not uploaded because the bandwidth at that time was only 10 Mbps, so it wasn’t optimal for this discussion. For this reason, when I want to make this article, I look for higher bandwidth first and finally it can also use bandwidth Up To 500 Mbps to download and upload. Why do I use the word Up To? only to ensure that later if there is a difference that is not far from 500 Mbps, I will not question it.

A few introductory paragraphs before I go to the main destination.

Next, I take an example from an ISP :

Source https://indihome.co.id/tripleplay

Source https://my-republic.net/

Source https://cbn.id/personal/fiber/cbn-fiber.html

If you look at the 3 images above, the highest speed is offered by CBN, which is Up To 1 Gbps. Before I discuss further, I emphasize the test here is about the speed of bandwidth, regardless of the stability and other things.

The decision to take internet bandwidth services is generally tailored to the needs, including :

  1. Use of the internet
  2. Number of users

In point number 1, this is relative, whether it is used only for browsing, online games or work, because in general, a good salesperson will first ask the needs of prospective customers, so they can provide the right direction.

For point number 2, generally prospective customers do not take this into account and will only complain if the connection is slow which unconsciously has been used by people around him simultaneously. For example, I take 10 Mbps of bandwidth, which if I use it myself is more than enough, but if my family / colleagues use it at that time, of course it will decrease because the bandwidth is divided into them.

Actually there is an additional point that is rarely calculated, namely the device used for internet connections, such as routers, access points (AP), switches and our own devices, including laptops and mobile phones that are commonly used. If you connect a network device with a different speed, then the connected device such as a PC, laptop or HP will be limited by the device.

Where is the influence? If you take services below 50 Mbps, this can be ignored, but if you use 50 Mbps services or above, this should be taken into account.

Topology, this is the most important point, because if you know this topology, it will make it easier in the checking process if there are obstacles. Make sure you pay attention again or ask when installing the internet at your place.

If your service already uses a Fiber connection, generally there will be a media converter such as BDCOM, ONT and the like installed in your place that can function as an internet source or just media so there must be an additional router. The point is the ISP will usually provide the device according to the service you are using.

Example of one of the ONT devices

Before conducting an experiment, I will explain the bandwidth and service topology that I use.

Bandwidth = Up To 500 Mbps

Connection type = Broadband

Topology = ISP <-> My device

<-> = cat 5 LAN cable

According to the topology image above, the ISP only gives me an Ethernet cable to connect to my device, so the internet source will later be my own device such as a router or laptop.

Is it clear enough here? Hopefully, hehehe.

Ok, I have done the simulation and here are the results :

Laptop Processor / RAM Port LAN Local (Mbps) International (Mbps) Conclusion
Download Upload Download Upload
HP 240 G6 i5 7200U / 8 GB Gigabit 467 314 297 263 OK
HP 240 G6 i5 7200U / 8 GB USB Fast Ethernet 88 95 problem with USB device
Asus X455LJ i3 5005U / 8 GB Gigabit 435 424 OK
Lenovo G40 i5 5210U / 4 GB Gigabit 301 311 293 148 problem in RAM

Table results above the bandwidth of close to 500 Mbps from laptops that use Gigabit ports and 8 GB RAM, besides that are far from expected. For USB Fast Ethernet, I only use it as a comparison enhancement, because the HP 240 G6 only has 1 Ethernet port. Oh yeah, in this case I don’t really consider the upload issue if it’s not appropriate because in my opinion almost most internet users download more than upload.

Why international traffic also doesn’t reach ? Please remember, almost all ISPs that offer internet if they do not mention the bandwidth path, it is certain that it is local bandwidth, why ? because the ISP must pass the IIX line which is actually for use in Indonesia, while for the international link (IX), they must have cooperation with other ISPs outside Indonesia (Upstream).

Remember, I adapted to the title of this article, so I only did a speed test to make sure the internet speed I was using was appropriate. This is also the main point before later finding other problems that can be reported to the relevant ISP.

Hopefully until here you can understand it first, because if you don’t understand it, it’s probably rather difficult to understand the next article that will relate to many devices.

 

Telnet Installation on Windows 10

Telnet Installation on Windows 10

Have you ever run a Telnet program and the following results appear ? The message informs the command prompt it does not recognize the Telnet command. If you are using a version of Windows 7 and above, you can immediately activate the Telnet program that has been provided in Windows.

Here’s a guide that I apply in Windows 10 :

  1. Click Start, then type program, then the result will be like the following image, click Add or remove programs.

  1. Click Programs and Features.

  1. Click Turn Windows features on or off.

  1. Scroll down and look for Telnet Client, check it and click OK.

  1. Click Close when finished.

  1. Please try again as the initial image and will display different results (in this case the Telnet command has been running).

Oh yeah, what is Telnet? I will discuss in another article. Thanks.

 

NetSetMan Installation

NetSetMan Installation

For those of me who often move work locations with laptops and sometimes are required to configure IP addresses so that they can connect to a network, it will be very troublesome if done manually. But it will be easy if you use the NetSetMan application.

NetSetMan is an application used to manage network profiles in Windows operating systems in 6 different profiles, structurally which can be arranged in a profile include :

  • IP Addresses (IPv4 & IPv6!)
  • Gateways (incl. Metric)
  • DNS Servers
  • WINS Servers
  • WiFi Management
  • Computer Name
  • Workgroup
  • Default Printer
  • Network Drives
  • NIC Status
  • Connections (RAS/DUN/PPP/VPN)
  • DNS Suffix
  • Route Table
  • SMTP Server
  • Hosts File Entries
  • System Settings
  • MAC Address
  • Scripts (BAT, VS, JS, …)
  • Program execution

Additionally only in the Pro version:

  • Can be used at work
  • Unlimited amount of profiles
  • Network-Domain
  • Complete Proxy Settings & Browser Home Page (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera)

Of the many features above and enough for me to use the free version, only IP & Gateway and DNS Servers that I often use.

Immediately I give the installation guide and its use :

  1. Download the application at https://www.netsetman.com/en/freeware or https://www.netsetman.com/netsetman.exe. This application only supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 32 bit and 64 bit versions with free and paid licenses.
  2. After downloading, the installation is quite easy, just simply click Next and Finish.

  1. Following the initial display after installation, the process is very easy :
    a. Click Double-click to give a profile name such as an office.
    b. Select the interface that will be assigned an IP in the down arrow.
    c. Check the column that you want to fill in the IP & Gateway, DNS Server, WINS Server and Additional, then click Activate for the process.

  1. Repeat step 3 if you want to create another network profile in SET1 to SET5, it is very easy, with just one click, I can activate the saved profile. If 6 profiles are still lacking, please use the paid version to get the features mentioned above.

  1. All settings and changes that have been made are stored in a separate (settings.ini) file so it doesn’t matter if you want to copy or move settings to another computer.

Good luck and hopefully avoid the hassle of filling IP. Thank you.

 

Deleting Test Mode Messages on Windows

Deleting Test Mode Messages on Windows

Suddenly on the bottom right of my laptop screen info appears like the picture above which is quite disturbing view of the wallpaper used.

Citing information from Microsoft, “The test mode message shows that the test signing mode on the operating system starts on the computer. Test signing mode can be started if the program installed is in the testing phase because it uses a dirver that is not digitally signed by Microsoft. Microsoft added the test mode to Windows so users can test the program without having to provide an authentication certificate.”

But if I search beforehand, there is a driver that I use is official from each existing vendor, whether there is an automatic update to a particular party.

How to delete it is also very easy, now I use the Windows 10 OS, but this method can also be applied in Windows 7 and Windows 8, only different in the Command Prompt search, the commands used remain the same.

Here’s how to delete it :

  1. Click the Windows logo then type cmd, the search results will appear, right-click on the Command Prompt and then select Run as administrator, click Yes to continue if a warning window appears.

  1. Type “bcdedit -set OFF TESTSIGNING” in Command Prompt window that appears then press Enter, if it has been successful, please restart Windows to see the results, it’s not easy.
