Preferred Solution: software needed for server connected to macs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: software needed for server connected to macs

What will the purpose of this sever be? File sharing or application? Or is it just to have the Macs all 'connected' together?

I'm an accounting major and plan to start doing some taxes for individuals following my class at H & R Block (don't worry, it's legal, I have an internship). I was wondering if there is any good software out there that does tax work that is compatible with a mac. I actually haven't done too much looking, so I don't really know what there might be out there. Also, good cheap places to buy software?

I will be running five database off of one server with 40 workstations local and five connecting via terminal services. will I need dual processor? I am thinking I will need at least 400 GB of hard drive space and at least 1gb of ram maybe more. What do you guys think.

My connection to VPN is ok, but when I try to connect to specific server in VPN it fails (\\ If I try to ping server, there is no response.

Maybe there is a problem with my network connection settings, because I have also issue to connect to computer in my network (I need to use nbtstat -a ip, before I can use shared files in network computer).

I have a local server where the Server name is setup with the server IP address.
I can ping the server name or the IP address from my Win/10 PC.
I also connect to several other companies using a VPN connection.
When I am connected to one of the VPNs, I can no longer ping to my server name, only my server IP Address.
It tries to connect to the name of my server followed by a dot and another VPN connection name.
I was told by the server group that this a Windows issue and must be in my DNS setting within Network sharing.
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to resolve this?

A:Cannot ping server name when connected to other VPN

Welcome to the forum. Once connected to a VPN you are not on local network so you will have problems connecting unless you have port forwarding

Is there some free server that i can use for creating a chat room application? and i need help on how to make it I've used java and i already know how to connect in database but i want to know how to connect server ?


A:Chat room connected to the server!

In the Server to Client relationship if you connected (a client) to a database you are technically connecting to a (database)server. I don't like to tell people to 'Google' when they post on TSG but I haven't seen any recent post concerning chat room software. When you search for "chat room software" you get lots of hits. It will take some time to investigate all the options. Good plan not to reinvent the wheel here.

Maybe someone will catch this post and provide some options.

I am using the Hotspot Shield VPN. Since the day I upgraded from Windows XP to Win 7, it has completely lost connectivity.

The computer simply refuses to connect and immediately shows 'unable to connect' when I put it On.

The VPN is working perfectly OK on all other machines I have, a Mac Air and a Win XP PC. So the problem is definitely with Win 7. (Probably its got something to do with security).

HS has a real lousy and incompetent customer service so I thought to first try asking here as I expect to get better advice than them.

Dear Fellows,

i have a printer connected to server which is avaliable to rest of computers which are connected to network via Wifi.

when a print request is send by a computer it stays pending as Server-Printer is offline, for printer to be online 1st user has to go to Networks->Server-PC then has to enter username and password.

is there a way to overcome this so that any computer which is connected to network can send request for print without having Userneme/Password of any account on the server?

A:Open Access of Printer Connected to Server

Kam, is this printer connected to the server directly? If so then the system admin has to change the security tab of the printer. If the printer has an IP directly, you should be able to add the printer by IP and it should be ok.

i need to figure out how to best clean a possible malware from my 2 mac laptops, an ibook and a powerbook. isn't the best thing to do a clean install on both just to be safest?

A:help for macs?

i had originally posted an issue in the security forum, and i was referred to ask in this forum. hope this is right, it's my first time posting on a computer forum. i don't know the protocol for mac laptops as far as the problem i'm having. when i search google for "my full name" i get weird spammy results, some offensive and some not. obviously, people are going to say that someone else with my name....etc. but this is not the case. i am the only person with my name for one, the other is that the results that the search index shows are some sites with what appears to be fake website domains, all showing jumbled language etc. with my full name amidst random text. if i click on the actual link, i'm directed to a domain purchasing site, or some foreign blog that i know nothing about and is in a different language. HELP? is this malware installed on my own computer creating this or is someone else creating it from another location? i just want to do a clean install to be sure i remove everything. i've already backed up my files, so its not a problem to clean install. any other recommendations?

My daughter has been given a Mac. It has no AV on it.

I've read through lots of sites as to whether AV is neccessary and some say yes and some say no. On balance, and in the more recent comments, it seems to be the concensus that it is wise to install AV.

Just wondered if anyone out there uses a Mac, and if so, do you have AV on it and, if so, which one?

A:AV for Macs

Mac users or Apple in general will haveyou believe that their systems are free from viruses etc, but that is far from the truth.
I have a Mac Pro and have had it for around 2 years without any sort of AV on it. The start of the year I started using Kaspersky as it was a product I had used on Windows based PC's in the past.
Gone are the days when Mac's didn't get viruses and malware etc. No OS is completely virus free.

Is it possible to take a USB-stick and format it in a way so when it's connected to a Windows 7 PC (the same pc) it's content is automatically executed? Without asking the user what should be done.

The request has no malicious purpose.

I was not sure where on the forum to put this. To it ended in software.

Thanks on advance.

A:Virus Problem Connected With Hp Software?

This is a known issue with HP and Compaq computers. For example in compaq presarios you may see: dont this is a virus per se, but rather part of their update software or other software that gets installed. Whenever I see these in logs I always fix. Why do they hijackthis your IE to those pages? So they can track who is using what.

I no longer work for the company that had the Exchange server and I have my personal pop3 email coming into Outlook.

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop, with a built-in wireless network connector. Recently, I have come across the problem of not being able to connect to the internet. I've tried on multiple browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE), but all come up with some sort of "Server Not Found" message. I am connected to my usual wireless network with a good signal strength, but I am still unable to get on any web page.

I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting to the network, and restarting my computer, but to no avail. Other computers on this wireless network (like the one I'm on now) work fine.

Thank you.

I have a user who is using a domain joined Windows Pro PC She has several printers mapped via a domain print server She uses a VPN to connect to another site with a different Windows domain She logs into the VPN with a user account setup for her on the other domain She then logs into a RDS server using those same credentials The problem is that she is unable to print to any of her local printers from the RD server The local printers show as being redirected on the RD server The redirected printers all look like they're online and Desktop to server while Local are printers offline Remote connected she receives no error when printing but nothing nbsp comes out of the printer However when you view the printers on her PC during an RDS session they are all Local printers are offline while connected to Remote Desktop server showing offline As soon as you disconnect from the RD server and the VPN the local printers come back online and anything she tried to print to a redirected local printer while on the server now prints out I've checked and the print spooler service on her PC never stops so that's not the cause I've checked with another user as user 's location who sits feet away from her and is mapped to Local printers are offline while connected to Remote Desktop server the same local printers She connects to the other domain via VPN using her own credentials on the other domain and logs into that same RDS server She then prints a document to the same redirected printer that user is trying to print to but in this person's case the document prints out and the local printers on her PC never show as being offline while connected to the VPN and RD server I've deleted the VPN connection from user 's PC and re-created it and compared it to user and there is no difference So I'm stumped as to why the locally mapped printers on this user's PC go offline as soon as she connects to the RD server Jonathan

I run a server for counter-strike, its a linux based machine, I would really like to setup the network so that the server is connected to my hub which in turn is fed by the modem (Rogers Cable), and another cable runs to the router which allows the rest of the computers on my network to connect to the internet. I setup a static ip on the server using my modem dns etc, but when the server has internet access none of the other pc's on the network can get on bt when i disbale the static ip of the server, it cannot connect but the rest of the computers can, I have tried everything but no luck if anyone could shed some light I would be very grateful.

Another dim question:

Bro is asking for RAM for his Apple Mac desktop. Apparently it takes PC100 SDRAM.

I have a handful of PC100 and PC133 RAM for pc, is this compatible with Apple Macs, or do I have to go down the (seemingly) expensive route of buying Apple RAM? (Not being a cheapskate sister, am simply genuinely broke!)


A:RAM compatibility - Macs

Hi josbd,

I'm pretty convinced that there's no such thing as Mac RAM or PC RAM. However, I do not suggest that you simply assume that any PC RAM will just plug and play into a Mac.

If you check out the link below (which I researched for you), you'll see that it mentions a PC100 SDRAM that is 'MAC and PC Compatible.'

The best bet for you and your bro I guess is to try out the current RAM you have first. If it works, great. If not, I strongly suggest you go out and get a proper RAM stick for that Mac. Find a Mac-friendly vendor, or you could even order it online off a website.

The other thing is to take note of your Mac. Is it an old machine or a newer one like the Mac Mini? Chances are, a newer machine will be able to take PC RAM more easily? Just a gut feel.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions.

Unfortunately, when I tell it to upload the files, I get an error message that says I'm not connected to the Internet (even though I am). I've never had this problem with other programs that require me to be on-line. And it's happening on both my computers, one running XP and the other Windows7, so it doesn't seem to be OS-specific. The obvious suggestion is to contact Cubby's tech support, but I haven't been able to get an answer from them. In the meantime, any suggestions for what might be causing this?

In both Vista and XP, I could explicitly setp the printer share name on the network and also what printer driver to use (PCL, PostScript). My PC has two printers, an Epson inkjet which doesn't support network printing from the Mac because it only supports PCL, and a Brother HL5240 laser printer.

A:Wireless Networking w/ macs and PC's

Might be best to get a wireless access point/router to which you connect your DSL and then let that share the broadband connection to all six computers in the house. If this doesn't immediately make sense to you then have a read of this home networking tutorial (especially the WiFi bits) first. Make sure you're securing your connection with a decent firewall (e.g. many routers include firewall capabilities).

Hey there.
I have a portable hard drive, that I can modify and add files to just fine on my PC. But on Macs, it's read only. Any ideas why?

A:Can't modify portable HD on Macs

Hi there,

Your hard drive must be formatted with NTFS from Windows. This is not a problem necessarily, it will just take a few minutes to get Mac OSX to be able to write to it (only 10.4.3 and above). There is a program called NTFS-3g. It has been ported to the Mac, and works great. I have tried it myself.

There is the link. Check it out. If you need help installing it, just ask here.

Also, if you do not feel like going through the trouble, you can always reformat the drive with FAT32 instead, which will wipe all the data on it. But Windows and Mac can both read/write to FAT32 with no problems or modifications.

Hope this helps.

But I need access to this drive not only on pcs, but also Macs at school.

And the U3 isnt compatible with macs.

I'd really like the flash drive set up just like a normal HDD where I can easily drag & drop files off & on it & easily access it via My Computer etc.

But I also want it encrypted on both pcs & macs.

So is there any password encryption that I can put on here instead of U3 that will work on both platforms?

Is there anyway to view all LAN network computers with built-in tools from windows OS?

A:How to view all computers connected to LAN network without 3rd party software?

Apart from the command that you are using, the only other way that you will be able to see all devices on your LAN is if you are in the same workgroup as the devices and if they have something that can be accessed by you (Share). To view all available shares go to command prompt and type the following command exactly:

net view
This should bring up a list of devices that can be accessed by your machine.

A similar viewing can be seen in networking and sharing center

Where I work we need a need new server. I am not really a expert in hardware so I hope you can give me a little help choosing a fitting server, I will use a template with answers to help you understand what's needed:

1) What is the available budget?
Up to 2500? (3380 USD, 2094 GBP).

2) Which tasks will the server execute?
GPS analyses which is pure heavy computing. The amount of reading and writing to the disc is moderate. Internet traffic is low.

3) There is any preferred brand or there is any that is out of question?
Any reasonable brand.

5) Does the size of the server matters?
Should be a standard rack.

6) There are any specific requirements (interfaces, storage etc)?
- 8 cores (1x8 [preferable] or 2x4)
- 16 G byte memory
- 4 Tera byte disc
- fast CPU

I am interested in using a switch to create VLANs in my network, with membership based on MAC addresses. I have looked at solutions from 3COM, Dell, and D-Link; however, as far as I can see, these companies only offer switches that configure VLANs based on the physical port that devices are plugged into. Could you please refer me to a 48-port switch with the capability to assign VLAN membership by MAC addresses. Not to be picky, but I would like to stay away from Cisco products because of the price premium associated with them.

Hello About two years ago a computer tech visited our home and told us we were the victims of a man in the middle attack he actually suspected much of my neighborhood was It now seems that whenever logon to our wifi network another hidden network will pop up along with it The interesting thing is that this hidden network only appears when our gateway is plugged in --in other words if i disable the gateway and search wifi networks with my phone or tablet BOTH networks --home and hidden--are no longer available--as though they are dependent on one another--also both networks share almost down Hidden Similar MACS With Networks to the letter MACS and bssids So if my home network has a mac of ce Hidden Networks With Similar MACS the hidden network's is ce and my event viewer up until last week showed me attaching to both unfortunately the files showing this seemed to have dissappeared Any ideas on what's going on and how to stop it would be appreciated Thanks BTW -- I wanted to attach a couple of jpgs but saw nowhere to attach

A:Hidden Networks With Similar MACS

...I should add that at the same time this hidden network appeared  my ability to connect my Kindle to my pc via USB was no longer functional and after a series of convesrsations with Amazon's tech crew their only suggestion was to do a factory reset.

I need help specing out a rackmount server for my website. It needs to run Windows 2000 and have SQL. What considerations should I look at in buying a server to host my site? I'm getting about 100,000- 200,000 hits per day and the site is written in Single or dual CPUs? Power supply? Motherboard? What sized hard drive(s)?

A:Rackmount server advice needed

I think that the first thing you considered is the RAM. The more the better , and somewere around 1 Gig should do it.
Also should think about a mobo with a raid array , since you need to serve pages fast. Based on those 2 thing you should start to shop for the rest. When it comes to single vs. dually cpu's, i belive that a single cpu should do it ,since it will only be used for web purpoises.

A:Intermittent DNS server problems - help needed please!

Have you tried something as simple as power cycling your network equipment(any routers and or modems)? If not; i would give that a shot and see what happens. Power cycling should reset the connections hopefully. Unplug any modem(s) and router(s); then wait about a minute and plug the modem(s) back in first; let them boot fully; then plug the routers back in and let them boot. If you have all in one routers/modems then just unplug that unit(s) and wait a minute then plug it back in and hopefully that will reset the connection. Also; one other thing to do is when you do have a working connection; check for any driver updates for your network card/controller(s) and install them. But check from the manufacturers site; not through windows update. Try this out and see what happens and if it doesnt work post back and we can go from there.

I've started a digital film course and need to shift my saved footage between my Mac in school and PC at home. I have a couple of old hard drives sitting around so I'm thinking a caddy might be the right idea.
What do I need to look for in the specifications etc? Any reliable brands?

Thanks in advance.

Long story short, my dad has a couple old Macs that cannot be upgraded past Mountain Lion, and not even Chrome supports that version anymore. I will be unable to convince them to buy new hardware or software, and I can't afford Win 10 keys (which cost more than what the computers are worth). I'm not particularly familiar with Linux, and will be unable to help when something inevitably borks. In fact, I'm a seven-hour drive away and so can't really provide support - though my stepmom's daughter is her techsupport and she deals with Windows.

My understanding is that the Insider Preview program allows Windows 10 to be used indefinitely, as long as you consent to the constant upgrades. Would that be advisable? Or should I really just try to get him a decent Windows laptop like a HP Stream?

From Windows to Flash to QuickTime and iTunes, malicious hackers target the most popular platforms.
For two weeks, I was having a heated discussion with some diehard Mac-only fans in a stock forum. It was one of those self-perpetuating, boring Windows-versus-Mac flame wars, where neither side ends up believing the other. Each side sincerely believes their platform is better and destined to rule the world.

Hey Folks,
I've just bought a little 128mb memory stick - my first!
Plugged it into my powerbook (OSX) & there it was.
I dragged a few mp4 files onto it & there they were.

Then, I dragged them out & dropped them into trash & they vanished.

However, my memory stick now claims to have only 93mb left.

My question is therefore;

Have I removed the files correctly & if not,
What should I do?


A:Stupid question about memory sticks & macs!

Mac has a few hidden files on every media. the ~30mb does feel a bit much however.

I'm using a macbook pro and i can connect to the internet, however when I try to connect with an xp laptop it connects but can't load any pages. when I open the network preference pane on my mac it shows that I've got an ip address and router address that go along the lines of 74.12.#.# (but they very, always start with 7 though) even though the router is set to distribute the standard 192.168.1.# .

When I click renew DHCP lease sometimes it gives me the 192.168.1.# numbers (and I can't load any webpages), and sometimes it gives the other ip address (then I can load pages).

At seemingly random points however I can load pages on the xp laptop, but it only lasts for a minute.

I'm sure this is an issue of how the router is distributing the ip address, but I can't figure out what to change. The router it a WRT300N

This guy claims AV protection is already built into our browsers, and our OS has FW protection already. Therefore, running AV software is overkill.
Any truth to this?

A:No AV Software Needed?

Personally I do not use any AV or anti-malware on my computers however, I have very specific installation policies setup on windows and I am extremely experienced when using the internet, I know how to browse safely and what not to click on, I also verify questionable links using, use ad-block and noscript, and have a custom firewall with add-ons. In the past 10 years, I have had 0 infections.
For the majority of users (unless they go to the extent I do with browser add-ons, firewalls, and group policy), I strongly recommend having both anti-virus software and anti-malware as well as keeping them up to date.

i need a piece of software to password my files, (easy enough) but I will be uploading these files, so when a user downloads them they will need to enter a password, does anyone know of any such tool? i know winrar can do it but thats not free.

to summerise, i want to password my files so when a user downloads them they need to put the password in to view it, it also needs to work without the user downloading the same program.

I would also like it as freeware.

Hello bruinator,

There are a few programs that can end processes, but it is generally a good idea to let them end by themselves so they can save the information they were working on. Some are critical to the system and can't be removed.

Hey guys,

Looking for a .pdf program that allows me to scroll through the different pdf files in a folder similar to a jpeg viewer. I document scan everything so I have 100's of files called 001.pdf 002.pdf ect.

Have had no luck searching via google. I just keep finding individual pdf viewers but nothing that allows me to scroll to the next file by clicking > or other.

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys,

We currently have a large amount of digital images stored on our shared server which we would like to be able to tag with multiple labels and organise into categories. Basically something like Google Picasa, that can be used on a corporate level.

I am looking for some kind of software which can be used by everyone in the company, so everyone can add photos, view, tag and organise them.

We are a fairly small company of 45 people with 1 office location and we all use PCs.

I've done some Google searches but have not been able to find anything I like the look of.

Ideally want a reputable company to buy software from, with a one off payment to purchase rather than software we need to pay to use each and every year.

Any tips and pointers would be great...!

Thank you!
