TamoGraph 5.0 and NetResident 3.0 Released

Announcing TamoGraph Site Survey 5.0

We are pleased to announce that we have released a new version of TamoGraph, a software tool for conducting Wi-Fi site surveys and visualizing WLAN characteristics.

What’s New in Version 5.0:

  • Automatic Virtual AP Placement. You no longer need to manually place APs in your predictive environment models!
  • Predictive environment models now support openings in floors.
  • Added new antenna patterns.
  • Virtual APs can now have two 5 GHz radios.
  • Updated MAC vendor list.
  • Improved CAD file import.

NetResident 3.0 is Out of Beta

After a few months of beta testing, we have finally released NetResident® 3.0, a network content monitoring and analysis tool. NetResident 3.0 has been fully rewritten and features a new architecture, new user interface, agent-based data collection, SSL decryption, and many other improvements.

What’s New in Version 3.0:

  • New User Interface: We have completely re-designed the user interface. The new ribbon-based UI gives you quick and easy access to the interface elements and menus.
  • Agent-based Data Capturing: The previous NetResident versions relied on promiscuous mode packet capturing from a single “observation point”, typically a PC connected to a mirroring port. The new version allows you to deploy compact monitoring agents on the LAN’s PCs. This new architecture facilitates data gathering and, most importantly, makes it possible to capture and decrypt SSL-based traffic.
  • New Rendering Engine: NetResident 3.0 comes with a new Chromium-based rendering engine, which makes it possible to display web pages as they originally looked in the end user’s browser.
  • New Database: NetResident 3.0 uses Microsoft SQL Server as its database engine. This makes it easier to control access rights, maintain data integrity, and quickly access stored network events.
  • Other Improvements: NetResident 3.0 supports a number of new network protocols (Outlook Web Access, iCloud) and comes with many updated protocol parsers.

Please note that we changed the format of registration keys in NetResident 3.0. If you are eligible for a free upgrade, please contact us to get a new registration key. Also, the data storage format has been changed in this version; old version 2.x databases are not compatible with this version. We highly recommend that you uninstall NetResident 2.x before installing NetResident 3.0.

Boot Multiple ISO from USB via Grub2 using Linux

Boot ISO Files directly from USB using Grub2 from Linux. Here is one way to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive from a running Ubuntu (I used the Live CD). You may eventually need a large Flash Drive or USB Hard Drive in order to include every bootable ISO entry. I will add more Bootable ISO files to the grub.cfg file as I find time to test them. Contact me to submit working Bootable Linux ISO grub.cfg entries for inclusion.

I. Format your USB Flash Drive to use a Single Partition:

  1. Open a terminal and type sudo su
  2. Type fdisk -l (and note which device is your USB Drive)
  3. Type fdisk /dev/sdx (replacing x with your actual usb device)
  4. Type d (to delete the existing partition)
  5. Type n (to create a new partition)
  6. Type p (for primary partition)
  7. Type 1 (to create the first partition)
  8. Press Enter (to use the first cylinder)
  9. Press Enter again (to use the default value as the last cylinder)
  10. Type a (for active)
  11. Type 1 (to mark the first partition active “bootable”)
  12. Type t (for partition type)
  13. Type c (to use fat32 partition)
  14. Type w (to write the changes and close fdisk)

II. Create a Fat32 Filesystem on the USB Flash Drive:

  1. Type umount /dev/sdx1 (to unmount the mounted partition)
  2. Type mkfs.vfat -F 32 -n MULTIBOOT /dev/sdx1 (to format the partition as fat32)

III. Install Grub2 on the USB Flash Drive:

Important Note:
Old versions of grub used --root-directory=/mnt/USB
while current versions use --boot-directory=/mnt/USB/boot

If you use the wrong syntax, you will receive an error stating “Installation is impossible. Aborting

  1. Type mkdir /mnt/USB && mount /dev/sdx1 /mnt/USB (replacing x with your actual usb device)
  2. Type grub-install --force --no-floppy --boot-directory=/mnt/USB/boot /dev/sdx (replacing x with your actual USB device)
  3. Type cd /mnt/USB/boot/grub (to change directory)
  4. Type wget pendrivelinux.com/downloads/multibootlinux/grub.cfg (to get the grub.cfg file)

IV. Adding the Bootable ISO files:

  1. Type cd /mnt/USB (assuming USB is still mounted… else repeat section III. (part 1))
  2. Simply click a tab below, and follow the instructions for each ISO Distro you would like to add.

Type wget "http://releases.ubuntu.com/13.04/ubuntu-13.04-desktop-i386.iso" -O ubuntu.iso

Or rename your existing ISO ubuntu.iso and copy it to the USB device

Adding an Unlisted ISO: To try ISO Files that are not yet listed, use the existing menuentry examples in /boot/grub/grub.cfg and append any options normally found in the distributions syslinux.cfg file on the “append” line to the “linux” line of the menu entry.

Please inform me of entries you get to work and I will add them to the list, so that others may benefit as well.

V. Last Step… Test to ensure your USB Device Boots into Grub2:

Reboot your Computer, and enter your BIOS or Boot Menu. Set the Boot Order to boot from the USB Device. Save your changes and Reboot. If all goes well, you should be presented with a Grub2 Boot Menu.
