Adding OVH Monitoring IP’s to Windows 2012 Server Firewall

If you login to the OVH control panel and notice that the monitoring is showing Red instead of Green, this is due to their monitoring servers not being able to connect to your VPS. You simply need to add their IP’s for monitoring that they provide in the control panel to your Windows 2012 VPS firewall.

The following command will add a new rule called “OVH Monitoring” and allow the remote IP’s specified in the OVH Control Panel.

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="OVH Monitoring" dir=in action=allow remoteip="92.222.184.0/24,92.222.185.0/24,92.222.186.0/24,167.114.37.0/24,192.99.166.111/32"

Hard times for hard drives: US may ban popular imports

This could be a damaging blow to quite a few companies within the United States.

Put lets put this into perspective. If you read the entire article you will see a similar situation that ended with Broadcom filing a complaint against Qualcomm. The International Trade Commission banned Qualcomm from shipping any new chips and hardware into the United Sates, and any chips that were already being shipped to the United States could continue. The ban lasted for 45 days, until an appeal by Qualcomm was successful and then the ban was lifted.
