Win a Copy of Windows Server 2012 Security from End to Edge and Beyond

As many of you know, I recently joined the team at Iron Networks to work more closely with DirectAccess and to be involved with some of their exciting new solutions for enabling the Microsoft private cloud. I was noticing that they don’t have much of a following on Twitter yet, so in an effort to change that I’m announcing a Twitter contest! This Friday, May 31, I will select one individual who is following both me and Iron Networks on Twitter and send you a free copy of Tom and Deb Shinder and Yuri Diogenes’ latest book entitled “Windows Server 2012 Security from End to Edge and Beyond”. I had the privilege of serving as the book’s technical reviewer and I can tell you it is an excellent reference that you’ll want to have in your library. So go out and follow me and Iron Networks for a chance to win!

July 2012 Twitter Outage and Forefront TMG URL Filtering

July 26, 2012 Comments off

Earlier today Twitter suffered a serious outage. To further complicate matters, it appears that Microsoft Reputation Services (MRS) is now categorizing as a phishing site.

I’m not certain what the reason for this categorization is for, but based on past experience it may have to do with Twitter services running on a shared hosting provider that previously included services that were identified as phishing related. To resolve this issue, open the Forefront TMG management console, highlight the Web Access Policy node in the navigation tree, then click Configure URL Category Overrides in the Tasks pane and move the URL pattern * to the Online Communities category.
