Run TinyWeb as a service in Win7

1. Create a service record using srvany.exe from Resource Kit:

C:\>instsrv.exe TinyWS "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\Srvany.exe"

Where TinyWS is a required service name.

2. Go to the service key in Windows registry:







3. Create a nested key "Parameters" and add two string values - "Application" and "AppParamteres". The last value specifies parameters string for TinyWeb, so in this case it will run on port 8080 for a folder "ConfigGenerator"

Cisco WLC interface and cli are extremely slow

Today I encountered a case when one of 5500 Cisco wireless controllers stopped operating properly. Both GUI and ssh were extremely slow and users complained too.
In the logs I could see multiple unsaccessfull authentications. Below is how it looked like.
Appeared that local IT guy connected WLC console to a local cisco router. Looped router console output was treated as an authentication attempt.
