Disable Bonjour in Cyberduck

Every time I load up Cyberduck, I get flooded with Bonjour Growl notifications. Since I never use Bonjour with Cyberduck, I figured it’s acceptable to disable it. It’s a simple Terminal command, like so many other things are in the Mac world. To disable Bonjour, fire up Terminal and execute this command:

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck rendezvous.enable false

If you want to re-enable Bonjour, do the same command but change false to true.

Windows 2008 Update with Proxy Server

I just installed a Windows 2008 behind a proxyserver and i saw that it couldn’t update.

To solve this issue you can do the following:

* Run the Command Promp as Administrator
* Type netsh
* Type winhttp
* Type import proxy source=ie

Now Windows Update will ask you for a username and password before it wants to check for an update.
