Ubuntu 12.04: Flash player settings problem solved

Updated Unbuntu 11.10 to 12.04 LTS, and am very glad to find that the Flash player settings dialog unclickable problem solved.

Before Ubuntu 12.04, each time I connected to a site with flash apps, such as Youtube "Record video from webcam", that want to access the the webcam or microphone,  the Adobe Flash Player Settings dialog freezes, allow/deny buttons are unclickable.

I tried to find a solution for that, but gave up at last , because all those suggestions seemed to be useless. I have faith in Ubuntu, I thought to myself, this problem will be solved at the next release. I am sure of that. ^_*

Now I have a new problem. When my daughters are playing some flash games, the whole screen freezes, and beeps very loud, the only way is to power down the computer, and restart.

I don't know if it's caused by some virus or the problem of the Adobe Flash Player.

Vodafone Router Configuration for Incoming Connection and other Services

This post is about specific Vodafone Home Broadband Router configuration for Incoming Connection and other service on your home computer. This is not a tutorial, and will not be going into details of the services and router configuaration, I just want to point out couple of points you need to pay attention to. 1. Port Forwarding. Vadafone Router has its own name for Port Forwarding, it's called Port Mapping under Port Management category.The picture below shows that I set up web server on my desktop, I map my local address on port 80; and I set up PPTP incoming connection by mapping local address on port 1723. Port Forwarding 2. Exposed Host. If you have set up Port Mapping, you still can't get what you want, then you have to put your device outside the Firewall, i.e. bypass Vodafone Connects (means Router) firewall, in a Demilitarised Zone (DMZ), using it's Exposted Host Function. Static NAT (Network Address Translation) means the Router will translate publi
