External USB keyboard does not work when connected to Dell Dockingstation on boot
Wed, Feb 25th 2015 10:27a   Ralf Petter
Today we had the problem that we can not enter the Truecrypt password on the external keyboard connected to a Dell Dockingstation with a new Dell Latitude Laptop. But after we have typed in the password on the Laptop keyboard and windows has booted the external keyboard works without problem. We have tried many things like updating the BIOS and other keyboards, but nothing worked. So we compared the BIOS config value by value with a working Laptop and found out that the Setting "Fastboot" in

Dolby Digital 5.1 Ausgabe bei Netflix und Amazon Instant Video
Sun, Feb 22nd 2015 7:51a   Ralf Petter
Ich bin ein großer Fan, der Streaming Dienste von Amazon und Netflix. Das einzige störende war bisher, dass es immer wieder Probleme beim Abspielen von 5.1 Inhalten über meine Heimkinoanlage gab. Meistens erhielt ich nur ein Stereo Signal, obwohl die Inhalte als 5.1 in der Benutzerschnittstelle von Netflix bzw. Amazon markiert waren. Als Abspielgerät verwende ich eine Playstation 3 die über HDMI mit einem Onkyo NR 636 verbunden ist. Heute habe ich mich einmal im Detail mit den Einstellungen

Download customized IBM i CUM and Group PTFs without Java applet trouble.
Sat, Feb 21st 2015 2:03p   Ralf Petter
Everybody who knows me, is aware that i am a big Java fan, but there is one thing in Java which does not work, Java applets. So it will be no surprise that i really hate the whole process to download Cumulative or group PTF's with fix central. The whole process depends on a java applet, which fails most of the time for security reasons. In older releases the use of the green screen "SNDPTFORD" command was not a workaround because it was limited to download only small PTF's and not big PTF

Fastest way to upload iso images to your IBM i
Thu, Feb 12th 2015 2:22p   Ralf Petter
When you plan an upgrade for your IBM i, you need to upload the iso images of the new release you have downloaded from IBM to your IBM i. The easiest way is to use a network share with Netserver, but the upload of 30 GB over a file share can be very slow. It is much faster to upload the images with FTP. In this tutorial i will show you how this works without the use of additional software: Start the FTP server with "STRTCPSVR *FTP" on your IBM i if it is not already started. Create a direct

Ein bekanntes österreichisches Systemhaus schickt heute Gutscheine für Faschings(Karneval)krapfen aus. Offensichtlich haben Sie aber einfach die Weihnachtsaussendung per Copy & Paste neu rasugeschickt und vergessen den Alternativtext des Bildes anzupassen. Wobei Werbemails die nur ein Bild mit Text enthalten in Zeiten in denen die meisten Browser keine externen Bilder mehr laden sowieso ein Epic Fail sind.

First steps with the new Node.js support on the IBM i
Tue, Feb 10th 2015 7:57a   Ralf Petter
Development of server apps with java script is very popular in our days. Since Technology Refresh 9 on V7R1 and TR1 on V7R2 Node.js is now available on my preferred server platform IBM i. So do not miss the tutorial to create a "Hello World" web server on the IBM Systems Magazine "Node.js the first kiss".

Fill an IBM i image catalog with images with one API call
Fri, Feb 6th 2015 12:06p   Ralf Petter
Image catalogs make the installation of new operating system releases or PTF's very easy. You do not need to change many CD's and if you want to install the update remote, image catalogs are the only possible solution. But in V7R1 there is no command to add a whole directory filled with images to an image catalog. You have to add every image with "ADDIMGCLGE" which can be a very boring task, if you have many images to add. Fortunately there is a system API which allows you to add all image

Create a REST Webservice in RPG IV
Wed, Feb 4th 2015 6:13a   Ralf Petter
REST Webservices are the de-facto standard for integration on the web, but as a RPG programmer you were not part of the game till IBM has released IBM i 7.2 TR1 and IBM i 7.1 TR9. With this releases IBM has added functionality to enable your RPG Serviceprogramms to act as a REST service. The support for REST Webservices is relative similar to that what we had for SOAP Webservices before. IBM has posted a three part tutorial (part1, part2, part three is missing in the moment) on their developerwo

IBM Navigator for i does no longer work with Firefox 31 and above.
Tue, Feb 3rd 2015 6:24a   Ralf Petter
From time to time i need the IBM Navigator for i to configure some things on my system which are not possible in greens screen or the Windows based Navigator. Today i have noticed that the Navigator is no longer working with Google Chrome and Firefox 31 and above. The reason is, that Navigator for i still uses SSLv3 and the browsers are no longer accepting such sessions wich are vulnerable by POODLE attacks. As a temporary workaround you can change the "security.tls.version.min" value in abo
