Netmon, MPS, RODC’s, and that new OS you might have heard about

Ned here. A few big pieces of news, in case you’ve been having a busy week:

  • Netmon 3.3 has been released. You can download from here. Read more about the new features (such as autoscroll, frame commenting, experts, WWAN support, and more) right here.
  • MPS Reports. They’re back. They work on Vista and 2008, as well as XP and 2003. You don’t need a support case to use them. Grab here. Hallelujah.
  • RODC’s in DMZ’s. Whitepaper on deploying AD Read-Only Domain Controllers into perimeter networks. Jump to it.

And the mack daddy…

  • Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Release Candidate. On schedule for an April 30th MSDN/TechNet release, and a May 5th public release. Wait, you don’t believe me, your faithful Beta engineer? Pfffft, believe it.
