Although address management on the internet is highly complex, it is clearly regulated by the Domain Name System. The system ensures that clients and servers can easily communicate with each other. It also allows reverse DNS checks which can find the hostname for any IPv4 or IPv6 address. This article explains how this works, and for what purpose these requests are made.
If the RPC server is unavailable, Windows will display the error code 0x800706BA. This means the network communication between the client and the server has been interrupted. The problem occurs fairly regularly in Windows 10. In this guide, we explain what the RPC server error message means and how you can fix it yourself without any expert network knowledge.
Combining different application systems has become increasingly important over the past few years. This trend is especially due to the increasing number of web applications being developed. In order to react to this trend, many different web services were developed that make data transfer across multiple systems possible. The Representational State Transfer (REST) is an architectural style that...
If you want to establish a secure connection to your server via the internet, you will need SSH. Whether sending commands, uploading files, or during remote maintenance, secure shell ensures that criminals cannot gain access to your sensitive data. Effective encryption and correct authentication are essential for this. To help you understand what is behind the SSH protocol, we reveal how it works...
Those working with network technology are bound to encounter the ISO-OSI model sooner or later. This system subdivides communication between computer systems into seven different layers. Each of these layers is assigned a certain task. With the help of this layer model, subareas of abstract processes are able to be descriptively explained.
Whether you’re on a desktop PC, smartphone or tablet – without an operating system it would simply be impossible to use your device. It’s for this reason that the system software and the respective installation files are loaded immediately when the working memory is first supplied with power. This is made possible by bootloaders, which are activated directly by the firmware specific to the...

The Domain Name System (DNS) is important for day-to-day web browsing. However, it is increasingly obvious that the conventional DNS has some weaknesses. New providers are attempting to fill in the gaps. One of them is Quad9. Given that it has no commercial interests – and that it provides a high level of security and privacy – the public DNS resolver is a genuine alternative to the more widely...
Due to increasing globalization, processes for connecting and networking digital infrastructures are becoming increasingly important. The remote procedure call (RPC) plays a key role in this context, as it enables efficient inter-process communication designed for task distribution in networked client-server architectures.
