How to define Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communication (always) with ansible win_regedit

I want to select Define this policy setting for Microsoft network client: Digitally sign communication (always) in the Group Policy on Windows Server with Ansible and select Disabled radio button. The following image shows the desired result.
enter image description here

I am using the following role:

- name: Disable SMB signing
    path: HKLM:SYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesLanmanWorkstationParameters
    name: RequireSecuritySignature
    value: 0
    type: dword
    state: present

Ansible plays the above role just fine and prints the following message:

TASK [active-directory : Disable SMB signing] **********************************
ok: []

However, nothing is changed on the Windows Server and the policy remains Not Defined. Can anybody help?

Fiber Optic minimum ping to edge network

Are Fiber Optic connections capable of achieving very low pings of 0ms-1ms to the closest edge networks like ISP servers? In practice, I have only seen 3ms-4ms ping which suggests that Fiber Optic is limited by the speed of light. Is this normal?

Are there good reasons for drawing initial neural network weights from a Gaussian?

Why not a Cauchy distribution, for example?

Neural Network Cell (Node) Types

I found this nice-ish-looking diagram, but it has a wholly inadequate descriptions for each of the cell types, aside from including names.

What is the definition/description of each of these cell types?

  • Input Cell
  • Backfed Input Cell
  • Noisy Input Cell
  • Hidden Cell
  • Probablistic Hidden Cell
  • Spiking Hidden Cell
  • Output Cell
  • Match Input Output Cell
  • Recurrent Cell
  • Memory Cell
  • Different Memory Cell
  • Kernel
  • Convolution or Pool

Import virtual disk to Google Cloud with Custom network

When I try to import a vmdk file to GCP with gcloud compute images import command, I get

“googleapi: Error 400: Invalid value for field ‘resource.networkInterfaces[0]’: ”.

Subnetwork should be specified for custom subnetmode network”.

The subnet mode in default network is set to “CUSTOM”. that’s why I am getting that msg.

Is there a way to specify network when I import the image? or specify the subnet information?

Network Based Geofence – .NET

Is it possible to create a Network Based Geofence using the .NET platform?

For example, is there a way where users can “opt in” to a service on their phone without installing anything, that would track when they enter and leave a geofenced area?

How to connect an IP Phone to a different network.

So I have this problem , I have a really enthusiastic client who wishes to setup an IP phone to our netwowrk. I know it’s not that easy as it seems. He has his CUCM server in the US and want to setup an IP phone outside his country. First thiing I told him was to register the phone’s mac address to his CUCM server and now I’m kind of stuck as I don’t know how to proceed.

Note : All our traffic goes through the firewall, we have no routers in place and please advise if IPsec VPN needs to be established and how to route the traffic which are in all together different network. Please help!

Wired network issues 18.04/16.04 /

thank you so much for be interested on my problem and i’m sorry for my bad english;

I’m new on Linux. I downloaded and installed in a new hdd partition alongside another hdd with partition with w8.
I installed it and I was happy until I opened Firefox and it didn’t get connected, so I started to looking for a solution; wired network is not connected. Since yesterday I’ve been trying to find out what is happening but nothing seems to work.

I thought that Ubuntu 18.04 were incomplete so I installed Ubuntu 16.04 but I was still without wired connection.

I borrow a WiFi Adapter from my neighbour and it worked, it detected my house’s WiFi but wired network still not.

I tried to install the Realtek 0012-r8168-8.046.00 Driver and nothing.

I installed again Ubuntu 18.04 because I changed a lot of things and I’m sure that I did something wrong. However, nothing fixed my problem.

The wired network adapter is an on-board Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)

And the WiFi adapter is an TP-LINK TL-WN725N and it has Linux support

PD: As I installed Ubuntu alongside w8 I checked the wired connection on w8 and it was right, with no problems


Hola, muchas gracias por interesarte en mi problema;

Soy nuevo en Linux; descargué Ubuntu 18.04 y lo instalé en una partición de un disco duro aparte del disco duro con Windows.
Lo instalé y estaba contento hasta que abrí Firefox y no funcionó, entonces empecé a buscar soluciones desde el celular.
Desde ayer estoy intentando buscar soluciones y nada. Pensé que por instalar una versión tan nueva del Ubuntu, podría haber venido incompleta. Así que instalé Ubuntu 16.04: sigo sin conexión a red cableada

Le pedí el favor a un vecino que me prestara un adaptador de WiFi para probar y funcionó, me detecta
la señal WiFi desde el puerto USB, pero la red cableada aún no. Intenté instalar un driver de Realtek para el adaptador de Ethernet y por un momento decia “Red cableada no gestionada” Pero le moví algo y ya no sirve.

Formateé de nuevo a Ubuntu 18.04 porque ya he moví muchas cosas y estoy seguro que algo hice mal y no sé qué fue, sin embargo nada me ha dado resultados.

La tarjeta de red es una on-board: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01)
Y el adaptador WIFI que me funciona es un TP-LINK TL-WN725N con soporte de linux.

Nota: en Windows 8 sí me funciona el adaptador de red normalmente y me reconoce la red cableada sin problemas.

Intercepting web traffic going over cellular network

If you can plug a device into the wall, or use it in Wi-Fi, it’s easy to see the traffic with software like WireShark.

But it seems more tricky to do it with a device that uses LTE/3G or other cellular networks to communicate.

If I’m worried about a device that could send some personal information without my consent, is unplugging it and returning it to the store the only solution?

What about devices that communicate using LoRaWan/LPWAN?

Updating parameters of neural network manually in PyTorch

Let’s say I have a neural network N where after training it, I want to manually update its parameters. For example, I would like to zero out elements of its N.parameters() which their absolute value is less than some threshold. How can I do that?
If I do


It gives me a generator which I cannot iterate over its elements. Is there any easier way to access the parameters in PyTorch?
