1. network status monitor project

    Date: 12/14/04 (Algorithms)    Keywords: browser, html, web

    Here is the gist of some project we are working on

    1) ping defined machines

    we have a ping.c program based on stevens but slightly modified so as
    to suit our project needs , it is basic and only verbose mode has been

    - It outputs to screen if run in verbose mode as ./ping -v localhost 32 2
    here 32 is packet length and 2 is the number of packets to be sent for
    ICMP echo reply
    -we compiled as cc ping.c -o ping

    2) portscan and portcheck

    we scan all ports via portscan.c program that will scan ports
    specified as argiments from start port to end port.
    It connects to ports and returns success else error thats all

    3) pingme file

    this has the hostnames or addresses in dot notation that define whom
    to ping upon .

    4) pinger shell script

    This shell script logs to /var/www/html and file created in pingme.html
    -executes the programs mentioned above and basically reads args from
    pingme file for the programs.
    - the output is logged to html file
    -execute as ./pinger

    5) open in browser
    we open http://localhost/pingme.html in browser

    Results is as below

    Statistics for ping on Mon Dec 13 21:57:51 IST 2004 from machine

    Hostname Reachable? Port 80 Port 21
    localhost: yes yes nope

    * ping
    * portcheck
    * portscan
    * script to integrate all components
    - add html output

    todo for networking project:
    * network congestion check
    * run all periodically
    * add eye-candy to html output

    Now this is project specifications we created

    Implementation of a network status monitor that can perform these steps

    1) ping all defined machines in the network from time to time, and
    alert (by an indicator on a web page or screen) when some machine is
    (2) periodically check HTTP and FTP ports of important machines (like
    your intranet server) to verify that services are running and
    responding properly
    (3) can check if there is any networking problem like ping delay or
    HTTP server responding slow
    (4) sysadmins can add custom service ports (other than HTTP/FTP) to
    their checklist
    (5) your application will then check if those ports are open from time to time

    1,2,4,5 are done so far ...for 3rd step we think some network
    congestion algorithm is needed and implementing it is needed. but
    simulation of congestion in lan is going to be tough right...any
    solutions ideas.....;)

    What more features we can add to this project to make it look l33t and
    impressive ....please do suggest some ideas.

    Deadline is approaching so please hurry....thanks again.

  2. Time for “Best Viewed in Firefox”?

    Date: 02/14/05 (Java Web)    Keywords: browser, css

    I have started seeing sites with "Best viewed in Firefox". It reminds me of the days of "Best viewed in Internet Explorer". In my quest for creating rounded borders, without using nasty tables and bunch of images, I realized that CSS3 supports it and so does Mozilla group of browsers (like Firefix). Here's a guide to Mozilla [...]

    ...read my "test run" notes on the main page, click around a little, and let me know how it is displaying with your montior, screen resolution, browser, etc. It represents my first attempt at writing any javascript stuff, so it is quite likely that it won't be displaying correctly for everyone. Screenshots are appreciated, too.

  6. Problem with anchor links on LJ

    Date: 02/10/05 (Opera Browser)    Keywords: browser, html

    Does anyone else have a problem with LJ comment pages and Opera jumping to the bottom of the page every time you switch a page? This is in cases where there is more than one page of comments on a post, and the page numbers and links are in two places - at the top, right below the entry, and at the very bottom.

    When I click on, say the link to page 2 of comments, the link points to page 2, anchor link named "comments". It switches the page all fine and good, but invariably scrolls all the way down so I have to manually scroll to the first comment on the page. This gets very annoying especially when reading posts with several pages of comments on them.

    I took a look at the source of LJ comment pages and found that they have actually TWO anchor links named "comments" - one at the top with the comment page links, second at the bottom links. I suspect this is the problem. Opera picks the latter link every time, other browsers (IE, Firefox) pick the first one and put my at the start of the comments. Behavior quirk or bug? Would this be the "fault" of Opera or LJ? (I don't think having two links named the same is exactly good HTML at least.) Is there a way to fix it so I could stop scrolling all the way up every time?

    Using Opera7.54u1 build 3918 WinXP, but the behavior has been the same all the way through version 7, can't remember about 6.

  7. VERY Incorrect Statement!

    Date: 01/28/05 (Opera Browser)    Keywords: browser, html, web

    Earlier, I was going through "TotalFark" reading various posted links and ran across an article on "The Observer Online" site entitled, "Stop using Internet Explorer immediately".

    In the article, on page two, third paragraph down, is an outright incorrect statement:

    "Find a Web browser that suits your needs, it doesn't matter which browser you use, so long as it is not Internet Explorer (be careful though, some browsers, like Opera, use the Internet Explorer engine, and so should not be considered safe)."

    Needless to say, I fired off an email to correct them. Haven't heard back yet though. I think the articles author, Lance Gallop, must have Opera confused with the IE shells like Avant or Maxthon.

    I was looking at the web server stats on my work machine I noticed that I've had 13 versions of Opera.

    I've just downloaded 7.54u1, so the leader board isn't about to change. It was version 7.23 that I used the most, with 7.54 in second place.

    For comparison, in the same period I've had hits from 3 versions of IE, 15 versions of Mozilla-based browsers, and four others.

  10. Background music?

    Date: 02/27/05 (Mozilla)    Keywords: browser

    Hi, I just joined and would like to say I'm a BIG fan of Firefox, it works so much better than IE and other browsers I've tried. :) Well I do have a question. I have background music on my lj but it only plays in IE and I don't hear my background music in other people's lj's unless I use IE. Is there a way to make it so I hear background music when browsing in Firefox? Thanks in advance.

  11. Speed of gif animations

    Date: 02/22/05 (Mozilla)    Keywords: software, browser

    Is it just me or do gif animations seem to run too fast in Firefox? Take a look at my hypnotoad icon in firefox, then take a look at it in IE or another browser/viewer. There's a signifciant difference in speed.

    I've noticed this with another icon recently as well. I tried viewing a gif animation in Irfan view as well and it was the same speed as in IE. This leads me to believe that Firefox has a bug that's running the animation too fast, rather than IE running it too slow.

    Please note that gif animations have delays specified in the number of milliseconds, so if it's running at a different speed in some software, it's because of a bug not obeying the time delays correctly.

    Here's a gif to test with in addition to my icon:

  13. Jailed for using a nonstandard browser

    Date: 01/28/05 (IT Professionals)    Keywords: browser, html

    Jailed for using a nonstandard browser
    A Londonder made a tsnuami-relief donation using lynx -- a text-based browser used by the blind, Unix-users and others -- on Sun's Solaris operating system. The site-operator decided that this "unusual" event in the system log indicated a hack-attempt, and the police broke down the donor's door and arrested him. From a mailing list:
    For donating to a Tsunami appeal using Lynx on Solaris 10. BT [British Telecom] who run the donation management system misread an access log and saw hmm thats a non standard browser not identifying it's type and it's doing strange things. Trace that IP. Arrest that hacker.
    Armed police, a van, a police cell and national news later the police have gone in SWAT styley and arrested someone having their lunch.

    Out on bail till next week and preparing to make a lot of very bad PR for BT and the Police....

    So just goes to show if you use anything other than Firefox or IE and you rely on someone else to interogate access logs or IDS logs you too could be sitting in a paper suit in a cell :(

    Update:: The source that told me about this has corroborated it with more detail in private email, but is leery of going public. I hope that more publicly available details appear soon, and will post them when I have them.

  14. Hi, my first time posting here.

    Date: 02/28/05 (WebDesign)    Keywords: browser, web

    Hello, I was wondering if I should build my site into all flash. But here's the thing, some people i've asked around about not having the plugin.. they usually denies the installation. My school browser, which is I.E, doesn't have a flash plugin as well. You see, i want to create a webpage viewable for most browsers.

    So, what should i do?
    Here's my first opinion, create a page for viewers to choose from.
    For example, having a flash page, then having a regular viewable sited page? Which will take more time than neccessary. :/

    Thanks in advance.

  15. Client side JavaScript search

    Date: 02/23/05 (WebDesign)    Keywords: browser, database, java, web


    I've a great big table and I'd like users to be able to easily search it. Normally I'd produce this with a database backend and just do a search function with that. That's not an option this time. Instead I was simply aiming to use JavaScript to open up the web browser's find feature. That's Ctrl+F on Internet Explorer, etc.

    I've had no luck though. Anyone know (if it's possible) the JavaScript to open the find/search box in the web browser. Anyone have any suggestions for a client side search function? (Just one static page.)

  19. Tab navigation problem

    Date: 03/04/05 (Mozilla)    Keywords: browser

    I'm having an odd problem navigating tabs in Firefox. I've been using 1.0 for sometime now, but in the past month or so I've found that when using Ctrl-PageUp and Ctrl-Pagedown to step through the tabs, for some reason it moves two at a time. So I can only see every other tab.

    it's really quite annoying. I can't find any reason for it. No settings regarding it, and I already tried disabling the Tab Browser Preferences extension. Any suggestions?

  20. Firefox works. (yes, it's a pun)

    How Firefox Works link - click here.

    Below is an excerpt from the page:

          "Chances are, you're reading this article on Internet Explorer. It's the browser that comes already installed on Windows operating systems; most people use Windows, and most Windows users don't give a second thought to which browser they're using. In fact, many people aren't aware that they have an option at all."  


    I seriously wish that Windows (Microsoft) would be more fair and offer users the option to choose the browser they want. I mean, they already sold the customer an Operating System, what possible harm would it be to let users know that they have a choice? Oh, wait. Those security vulnerabilities were put there on purpose so big businesses can exploit them to sell their wares to unwitting users.
