If you happen stuck on SMTP incoming mail problem with this kind of error message in your log,

SMTP Server: Authentication is not enabled in the SMTP Internet Site Document for

Please note that at the end of the error message is seem incomplete but that was what in my console. I double and triple check again for the SMTP Incoming Site Document, but it’s there. This usually happens after you enable “Load Internet configuration from Server\Internet Sites Documents” at Server Document.

I remember ever solve this kind of problem years ago but my memory was failing me. After several days, I got my aha moment after googling this stuff. It seems domino can not find the Site Document even though it’s there. Problem? For seasoned domino developer, this must ring something. It’s the view index that not updated properly.

To sort this problem, just issue this at the Server Console,

updall -R names.nsf

Or, just ctrl-shift-F9 while opening the names.nsf. I hope this help

Bagi penggunana internet banking Bank BCA Klikbca, dan yang juga menggunakan Apple Mac OS X, secara official memang tidak disupport oleh pihak Bank BCA. Mungkin karena user base yang dianggap tidak banyak dan mainstream. Jika harus menggunakan Virtualization untuk boot-up dan menggunakan Cisco VPN Client-nya yang diberikan oleh Bank BCA, sangat tidak efisien meskipun bisa.

Ternyata dengan sedikit membongkar installer, kita bisa gunakan data disana untuk menggunakan VPN Connection yang sudah terintegrasi dengan OS X. Maka itu pula mengapa Cisco VPN Client for Mac sudah didiskontinu oleh Cisco.

Berikut ini yang terdapat dalam file ‘VPN Client.pcf’ dari installer OEM yang diberikan Bank BCA,

!Description=VPN Client
!enc_GroupPwd=lakjshfdlkh… (dipotong supaya rapih)

Dengan informasi diatas, kita bisa gunakan untuk membuat koneksinya.

  1. Buka System Preferences lalu pilih Network

  2. Pilih Interface: VPN, VPN Type: Cisco IPSec, Service Name: KlikBCA Bisnis. Lalu klik “Create”

  3. Setelah koneksi terbuat, klik di “Authentication Setting

  4. Isi Shared Secret: dengan vpn3000 dan Group Name: dengan SME lalu klik “OK”

  5. Setelah kembali ke halaman koneksi, isi Server Address: dengan kemudian Account Name: dengan kombinasi CORPORATEID dan USERID yang digabung tanpa spasi. Contoh untuk corporate id ABCDEF dan user id XYZ maka account namenya ABCDEFXYZ. Setelah itu bisa langsung dikoneksikan dengan klik “Connect”

  6. Setelah berhasil terkoneksi maka akan muncul pop-up window konfirmasi, silahkan klik OK untuk lanjut atau Disconnect untuk selesai.

  7. Silahkan gunakan internet banking seperti biasa dengan mengarahkan browser anda ke http://www.klikbca.com_ dan jangan lupa bahwa selama terkoneksi ke VPN ini, koneksi internet anda tidak dapat digunakan sampai anda putuskan koneksi VPN tersebut.

  8. Setelah selesai untuk memutuskan koneksi, anda bisa Disconnect dari System Preferences atau menggunakan menu bar jika anda aktifkan sebelumnya.


The extraordinary is in what we do, not who we are.

“Mengapa ada banyak sekali tuhan-tuhan? Karena masing-masing diciptakan oleh orang-orang berbeda untuk mengambil keuntungan dari orang-orang di lingkungannya.”

“Why are there are so many gods? Because each was invented by different men to take advantage of their fellow men.”


From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it’s different. Consider again that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known, so far, to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

~ Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, 1997 reprint, pp. xv–xvi


"Apakah tuhan ingin mencegah kejahatan, tapi tidak mampu? Artinya dia tidak mahakuasa

Apakah dia mampu, tetapi tidak ingin? Artinya dia kejam.

Apakah dia mampu dan ingin? Lalu dari manakah datangnya kejahatan?

Apakah dia tidak mampu ataupun tidak ingin? Lalu kenapa memanggilnya tuhan?

~ Epicurus (filosofer Yunani, 341–270 SM)
