For those of you who haven't the faintest idea what I'm talking about, check out Ironkey's website at https://www.ironkey.com/. It has an AES 256 cipher chip in it and automatically destroys itself after 10 consequetive bad password attempts. Yes, I said destroy - your data will be forever lost. The drive comes preloaded with a locked down version of firefox and you have the option of using their secure network as a proxy and surf the web anonymously.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's waterproof and has a solid metal casing that feels pretty sturdy.
Overall it seems like a fairly secure device but if you're not feeling that paranoid, you can always use software based options like Truecrypt (free, easy to use) http://www.truecrypt.org/

So shortly after upgrading our Exchange system to 2007, I started having trouble receiving emails from this one company. The following error would not go away and all other servers out there in the web that we sent mail to or received mail from had no problems.

1. Test that you can connect to it with mysql itself. CD to the bin folder of the mysql install on the RCC server.
2. mysql --port=3309 --user=rccuser --password
3. It will then prompt you for the password which can be found in the "AddUser.scr" file (open with notepad) located at Program Files\Nortel\Reporting for Contact Center\RunOnce. It will be surrounded by ' and located after the username which is rccuser
4. Once you are logged in, type in show databases; (always end in semicolon). This will show you all the databases.
5. Type in use ccrdb;
6. Then use show tables; to display the tables.
Now that you've confirmed the port, username and password you have will work, now you can use Crystal or some other reporting package that supports mysql connections to generate your own reports.
