Until Revit comes up with some kind of advanced and granular permissions management for workshared files, we are left with a situation that requires best-practice Revit use combined with 100% obedient staff. If you would like to take matters into your own hands in the meantime, you can use this somewhat scary hack to check out worksets using a concealed user name. As with many posts on What Revit Wants – use at your own risk!
Copy the username into Microsoft Word and change it to a different font in this example the font called AIGDT. (which is just associate symbols to letters).
Copy the username (AIGDT font) back into Revit and as you can see Revit just shows it as bullets.
Worksets checked out to that user will appear to others like this:
We run a Small Business Server box and it primarily provides our email via Exchange Server 2003.
Recently, our ISP indicated that our server was relaying or forwarding spam messages. I have tried a number of different things to correct this, and I would like to share a few of the steps of I have taken.
On a slightly unrelated note, some nefarious characters kept trying to login to our server via Remote Desktop. I have defended against these attacks by using a program called 2x SecureRDP. This ‘filters’ incoming RDP connections and stops repetitive RDP attacks before they occure.
I hope some of this information has been useful to you.
