Client sends keepalives. Firewall responds to clients' keepalives but somehow forgets to forward them to the remote VCS gateway and that one closes the session after one hour.

Worst thing is that all these silly Check Point bugs always require some sort of update or hotfix, which is not a simple task in 24/7 datacenters.

Had something like that at the airline where I worked,  setup a VOIP environment,  and every morning during the morning meeting between the two sites, the concall would drop, call lasted an hour, and after some variable time the call would drop after 30 minutes, never before. but not always.

After much troubleshooting we determined that the remote site put the call on mute and if no one from remote office spoke, the VOIP system would  think the line was dead after 30 minutes and the system would close the connection.  The variability came into play where if someone spoke after 10 minutes, then put the phone back on mute, 30 minutes after that call would drop, and if they spoke a few times, without a 30 minute lapse being on mute, that call would not drop. <insert head scratch emoticon here>

H.323 Keep Alive packets sent (sent every two minutes) from the localhost to the remote host are being intercepted by the Security Gateway and are not being forwarded to the remote host.

Instead of forwarding these H.323 Keep Alive packets, the Security Gateway is incorrectly responding to the local host, as if it were the remote host

We need to know your salary because —

In the April 24, 2018 Ask The Headhunter Newsletter, a reader cites the law about employers demanding job applicants’ salary history. Question The job application I had to fill out required I provide my current salary info. I just read that a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided that employers can’t use my old salary to decide my job offer, so why do they keep asking? (Court Ruling: There’s Never a Reason to Use Salary History When Calculating Pay.) I’ve started asking HR why they need that information and, Man, have I heard some real doozies. Seriously, HR thinks we

There's a couple of his videos that are 7-10 minutes long, great for a break.

I saw one where he demonstrated that trees come out of the air, not the ground. Loved it.
