Politics: where absolutely anything is OK as long as the right team does it.


The company the we purchased our hotel system software off has been having trouble vpn'ing into our site for maintenance etc.

I can vpn fine from a number of boxes, so I've been doing support for their system trying to figure out what's going on.

I've asked them to telnet to our server using 1723 a number of times which returns a cannot connect to server error.

Had a brain wave today, and asked them to telnet to our server using port 80 which worked fine, but then the guy I was working with (on the phone) states that he's surprised because their INTERNET IS DOWN!

Sometimes I just want to cry. Anyway, just letting off steam.

Ps. Sounds like they've got a box internally with our ip or have it aliased to somewhere else... fools...
