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.)

I've been having a little bit of difficulty reestablishing a wireless network that used to work. Right now, I've been trying to fix one problem at a time, and I've been focusing on the server. My question is, I was wondering what it means when the server is able to ping it's own address as well as it's own computer name, but the computer name does not appear under My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network>"workgroup name"

Appreciate any help you can offer!

I hope someone can give me some help on this one. I work for a small automotive repair shop. We just bought an hp proliant server to run our repair invoice program on. The problem i am having is that I cannot get the server to be able to ping the other computers on the network. I can ping from the other computers to the server though. I need to be able to do this so ican set up the rest of our software. Does anyone know where I might find the problem? By the way, I am running windows xp professional sp2 on the server and windows xp professional sp1 on the other computers.

I'm thinking something similar to ftp, have no idea what options there are.

Have 3 computers want to network between both in a more convenient manner than msn.

Hopefully can get some recomendations to minimise trauling time. Both computers are running windows XP and are connected through a multi-port router.

Thanks for any input.

A:Home network, looking for server to share files between computers.

You should be able to do this simply WITHOUT a server. All you have to do to share files, is use windows file sharing. Let me paint a picture for you...say you have your 3 computers. One is named Suzy, one is Steve, and one is Bill. Once file sharing is enabled (which you can do just by sharing a file), you should be able to do something similar to this. Say your on the computer Bill, and you want to grab some files from the shared folder on Suzy. Open up my computer, and in the address bar (Where is says your location) type in \\Suzy. This will give you access to the files and printers on that computer. BTW if you dont know how to rename a computer, right click on the my computer icon and select properties. Once the system tool comes up, click on computer name and change if necessary. Good luck and I hope this helps make things cheaper than buying a crappy old server lol.

Hello. I am a complete newbie to server administration. At my current job, I have been tasked with setting up a deployment server. The server is a Windows 2008 server and is not connected to the Internet. The server is a domain controller on its own domain (different from the main domain my job uses). How would I connect this server to the Internet without disrupting other users on the network? By disrupting, I mean connecting to my server instead of the main server for DNS and DHCP. The server has Active Directory Domain Services, DNS, DHCP, and WDS roles set-up.

HiHave a server linked to four computers and a laptop for a business and can't seem to access shared files on server from other computers as it keeps asking for username and password to access it. Have tried to change from workgroup to domain that the server is on so to create username and password but error message keeps coming up 'a domain controller for the domain ata.local could not be contacted or if just use ata as domain it does not accept any username or password. Also have tried suggestions in other forums such as simple sharing and creating an account on other pc's with same username and password as server. All of the systems are windows xp and the server is windows standard fe. Would really appreciate any helpThanksHarry

A:can't access shared files on server from network computers

Hello bighaz,

Are you running a Domain Controller(DC) for your domain? If not, go to 1, if you are go to 2.

If you are not running a domain controller then the user credentials will not be present on every machine thus the error. If all users access the same files then you could create a single generic account on the file server and the users will need to use these credentials to access it. If the users need restricted access to certain files and folders you would need to create multiple accounts on the file server.
Once done ensure that all machines are in the same 'workgroup' default name is WORKGROUP and you should then be able to have access.

If you are running a DC you will need to ensure that all machines are members of the domain and that they know of the IP address of the DC(this will either be set by DHCP if you are running a DHCP server or if all machines have static IP's this will need to be set on each machine. You will then need to add the user accounts to the ACL for the file share they require access to. Remember you may need to add the user to both the share permissions and NTFS permissions.

If the above is still not working can you please confirm that you can ping the file server and also see if you can access file shares on any of the other PC's.

But my machine is not showing any such on screen messages while booting. It stay blank till it enters the desktop screen. What could be the exact cause and solution for this problem? Because of this, I am not able to choose the boot options or anything during boot up. Hoping for a solution to this case.

As the topic says, I'm having an issue where a computer on a network cannot see the other computer on the network.  It is able to connect to the internet, and I double-checked based on earlier threads and the network discovery IS ON.  This computer
is able to create a Homegroup and the other computer on the network is able to see the shared folders when it joins the homegroup, but I cannot create a homegroup on the
other computer and have this computer see it to join it.  The other computer sees this computer in Windows Explorer under Network, but as far as the problem computer is concerned, it is the only computer on the network.
Despite this, when I open up the Network Map, it shows both computers, the router, and the modem.

I burned a CD-RW. I /thought/ I told it to delete old data, and replace it with my new data. When I attempt to read the disc on some computers, the correct files are there. On other computers, the old files are there and the new ones are nowhere to be found. The one computer it works on is a DVD and CD burner. The other computer it works on is just a DVD player. I am not 100% sure what the computers it didn't work on had (I believe they were CD burner).

What could be causing this? Thanks.

A:CD-RW data not appearing on all computers

If you packet wrote the software, then the other PC's may need a UDF driver installed to see the new files. I believe XP has a UDF driver installed by defaalt, but win98 doesn't..

Some burning software only works with the UDF driver that was installed along with the software..

You can try installing this on the PC's that don't read the disk..

"Windows cannot connect to the domain either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. If this message continues to appear contact your System Administrator for assistance."

I have searched online, but I only come up with issues where only the users or computers have red X's on them. My 2003 DC has a red x over the users and computers icon. It has a subfolder of saved queries but nothing in the folder.

A:Shared drive only appearing for some computers

You really should only be sharing from the C:>Users folder rather than the C: drive itself.

If you had a Homegroup set up that might prevent other machines not in the Homegroup from seeing the drive.

Once the folders are shared you shouldn't have to go through the process again, although you should have set that up through the Users folder rather than the C: drive per the link below.
HDD sharing

Not sure about the credentials but it may help to turn off password protected sharing in the Advanced Sharing Settings.

Have you ever checked your cabling? That's the first step.

You say you've checked dns, can you post an ipconfig /all for us? Slow logons and connections are generally dns related. NT server was dumb as a stump for lack of better words and would ignore alot more. 2000 and up are a little more picky.

Also, download and install the 2000 support tools. run dcdiag and netdiag. Look for errors or other trouble spots.

I'm trying to set up wifi on an HP mini 210 with windows 7 starter installed. I'm sharing internet via an iMac with airport (connected via ethernet.) My iMac settings appear to be correct (I can connect my iPod Touch and Kindle no problem.)
When I try to connect the HP my network name appears in the list of available wifi sources and lists all the details (WEP, 802.11n, SSID) but when I click 'connect' it says 'Windows was unable to connect' without requesting a password (and troubleshooting finds no problems.)

I've tried different settings (changing my network name, password, and from 40-bit {5 digit password} to 128-bit {13 digit password}) with no success. I've tried manually adding the network to the HP through the Network and sharing centre with no luck either.

Instead of using WEP which can be hacked easily, I would try changing your network security to WPA2.

The facts...

I recently reconfigured/renamed a computer (bought earlier this summer) in our office to a new user (the users old machine was retired). In any case, I noticed that Excel, Outlook and Word no longer appeared in Start Menu > All Programs >Microsoft Office folder (it did show up for the previous user). Other products such as Access, OneNote and Powerpoint are still listed.

Not really a problem since I went to Program Files (x86), found the MS folder and pinned the .exe's to the Taskbar and Start Menu. Everything works fine.

I would just like to know why they are not listed in Start Menu > All Programs >Microsoft Office folder.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

So here's my situation. My desktop and laptop are both connected to the same network.
My desktop is connected to the router via ethernet cable and my laptop is connected via wifi. Both have internet.
If both computers are connected to the same network, shouldn't I be able to see them in the "Networks" list
under Computer in the My Computer window?

Of course, right? Well, I don't. So I did a little test. I turned off my firewall and guess what? I can see them.

But I don't want to keep my firewall off though. I mean, isn't there another way?

Isn't the whole point of belonging to a homegroup in Windows 7 to be able to connect to other network computers without having to turn off your firewall?

My home network was made up of a desktop running windows XP home (wired) and a desktop also running XP (wireless). I have recently added a desktop running Windows 7 (wireless) to the system. When I turn on the Windows 7 machine, it sees the other two machines and I use the files from them easily. But after the new machine has been on awhile, it does not see the other computers. (I can, however, still access the shared files on it (the Windows 7 machine) from the other desktop (haven't checked the laptop). If I power down the Windows 7 and then turn it back on, the other machines show up immediately. I've got them all named to the same workgroup and in the network settings in the control panel, I think that it is set to discover the network. I'm not yet very familiar with the Windows 7, but is there something obvious that I need to do. Thanks.

I have a 4 computer network with 2 Windows 7 machines and 2 Windows 10 Pro machines. The Win7 computers can see and access all 4 computers through Network. The Win10Pro machines can see and access the Win7 machines. They can't see or access themselves. They can PING each other though through powershell. I've tried disabling firewall and anti-virus and nothing changes.

Hello All

We run Server-2003 domain DHCP network and some 25 domain client PCs - mostly Windows-7 32 and 64 bit

A few days ago Win-7 users noticed that "Network" no longer shows all domain 20 computers - just 5
Servers still display all computers just like before...
Nobody changed any network settings on any server or client... All clients respond to Ping OK
Please advise what could cause the sudden change. What should we check or adjust ?

All of a sudden this week, I have noticed that we are getting a ton of Empty random alpha numeric folders with amd64 etc folders within it stacking up in the root of the C driver, some computers and servers  have 20+ folders,  they are empty
folders but its weird.

A:Random Alpha Numeric folders keep popping up in our Server and windows 7 computers C Drive Root

They keep coming back though and they stack up a lot, they were never there before it was just recently it started.  Only thing in them is empty x86 folders, sometimes amd64
As I said before, the folders are temporary folders created as a result of installation/uninstallation or during an update install/uninstall, as you can see the folders as x86 or amd64, which denotes the architecture of the installation files.The update is
of non-Microsoft products only. Check with event logs for additional information.Balaji Kundalam

Hi there
Outlook 2010 and using gmail -- I delete email from inbox -- says OK email gets deleted --then a few seconds later the Email inbox gets re-filled again.

I just can't seem to permanently delete emails.

"Normal ISP" accounts or exchange corporate email accounts seem to work fine .

Anybody got a solution for this -- I've got nearly 1100 wretched emails in the inbox that I can't get rid of

Even moving then to a LOCAL inbox and delete doesn't cure the problem. I'm using IMAP service.


A:Deleted email from gmail keeps re-appearing (Outlook 2010)

Hi there
Found it --
Bad case of "RTFM" (or Not doing it). You need to set Auto Expunge OFF and then choose delete from server.

Otherwise system leaves archive for 30 days or until server runs next update.

A:Outlook 2010 html appearing as plain text

I'm using Outlook 2010 64bit as my client to my Hotmail account. On my previous computer, I had the same setup only 32 bit Outlook 2010 and it worked fine. On my new build, some but not all, HTML emails are being rendered as plain text. It seems to be more common if the client is running as opposed to starting the client. The emails are not specific to any sender and the weird thing is that I can move those emails that aren't rendering correctly to a temp folder in Outlook, sync with Hotmail, go to the Hotmail web interface and move those emails back to the inbox from the temp folder, resync and they show up rendered as HTML in my Outlook client. That tells me that it isn't the emails themselves. I have found no other way for Outlook to recognize these emails as HTML once they have been opened in the client. Weird no?

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

Trying to put Office 2010 on a machine running Windows Server 2003 R2 (SP2) with Terminal Services.

The machine will be set up so that anyone requiring the usage of Office 2010 can use RDP to log onto the server and use the programs there.

1) Do I need a specific version of Office 2010 to make this work?
2) Is this a violation of the license agreement for Office 2010? (Obviously I care about this less than the first part, but I'd like to know.)

The only reason I ask is because apparently my friend tried to install a version of Office 2010 we had lying around and it apparently gave him some weird error about Terminal Services... haven't seen the error myself but I thought I'd ask before I try this again.

Hello everyone,
Yesterday, i got the new office 2010 on my laptop, and i have a small problem. I tried removing and reinstalling office, but it didnt work.
When i turn on the Mini-translator feature under the review tab, set the desired "Translate To" language, highlight and hover over a word, i get the following message:
"The service could not respond. The service may not be installed. Running repair may help. If this problem persists, repair your product from within the Control Panel."
It happens mainly between French and another language. For example, when i try to translate from english to arabic, it works fine, but from english to french, or arabic to french, it doesnt work.
I also ran the repair option from control panel (before removing and reinstalling it), it still did not work.

Any ideas why and/or how to fix?
Any help's appreciated

A:Problems with Office 2010 Mini-Translator

That's probably because proof reading and other language specific goodies like dictionaries are not installed for French language.

Click Review - Translate - Translate selected text.

In the Research bar click Translation Options...
In your case most likely French is NOT among Available language pairs.

If it is not, go to Start- All programs - Microsoft Office 2010 - Microsoft Office 2010 Tools - Microsoft Office 2010 language preferences. Add French by selecting French in drop down menu and clicking Add button. It will show you that Proof reading is not installed.

Click on "Not installed". It is a link. Download required language. After installation of that language-specific features you should get dictionaries to and from French , which exist for Office 2010 (I think for French that would be about 4 local language pairs/dictionaries).

Okay, usually when you hover over the networks listed and available from the taskbar icon, you get a nice little window with a few helpful tidbits of info for each listed network when you mouse action hover over the names. It tells you the encryption type, and the SSID, plus a few other details.

Well, on my computer, the information is appearing behind the list to where I can't read it. The network list is overlapping on top of the hover info. Talk about annoying. I searched for various things on google, with no luck. I tried:

Windows 7 network list obscuring hover details, and various other combinations to no avail. Anyone here have a clue what might be breaking this? I'd like the hover details to appear properly so I can read it. In the meantime I've installed the free version of Acrylic Wifi to work around the issue. Thanks.

The problem must be driver based or an add-on program because I don't get any of that. All I get is the name and whether it's connected or not. Check that your adaptor driver is up to date and/or the program you use to display the data is up to date.

I have checked all Homegroup related tweaks and none seem to be the cause.

Any ideas? What I may have done, or what could cause this?

Hello I recently upgraded the Home. correctly showing Computers not up network Windows 10 in machines on my home Computers in network not showing up correctly Windows 10 Home. network to windows home I am having frustrating issues with the network at the moment and would appreciate any help available Currently Computers in network not showing up correctly Windows 10 Home. when I open up quot this PC quot and click on network only one of the computers shows up and this machine is not the local machine on of them However If I type in the UNC address for Computers in network not showing up correctly Windows 10 Home. the other machines I can access them If I set up a home group all the computers show up in the home group roll out under quot this PC quot but still not in the network Something else that is strange If I look at quot network and sharing center quot two of the the computer see one private network name and the other one sees a different name I did not have any of these issues with windows prior to upgrade The exact same hardware PC's router ect functioned correctly all of the PC's are hard wired to the router so any WiFi issues can be ruled out Thank you in advance for your help

A:Computers in network not showing up correctly Windows 10 Home.

This gets so time consuming, that I hate to even get started but I have a similar problem. I actually think that some update to win 10 caused this issue but can't verify it. I have 2 desktops and 2 laptops on the network. One desktop and one notebook were upgraded to win 10 about a month ago. Everything was fine then. Since three days ago, the notebook does not show up on the other computers at all including itself. This is under "network" on file explorer. On the notebook under HOMEGROUP , it shows a mixture of username and computer names but never the same thing twice. The WIn 10 desktop shows the same mixture under Homegroup, but shows everything under NETWORK but the notebook. The note book has become the hidden device on all four computers in the house. The frustrating things is that tomorrow, these results will all be different. So far the required shared folders and printers work as advertised, even though the names don't show up !!!!

I have 4 computers that have Windows 7 Pro SP1 on the company network.  The network is managed at corporate.  One of the end users was having a problem on their computer so I was checking out settings and ms updates and found out that this one
computer has not had any MS Updates since Sept 2015.  In the Updates section in Control Panel it says there are no Updates to install.   I checked a couple of other computers and sure enough they haven't received the MS Updates since either August
or Sept 2015.  I am not sure why these computers are not getting the updates.  

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Our IT department installed some old version of Symantec Backup Exec (8.5, compatible with XP, not Windows 7), and my computer hasn't been more buggy since, and it throws warnings saying it's "at risk" and no backups have been made for over a week and there's no "restores"... I think it's just not able to see Windows 7 backups/restores.

Anyways, I was reading that Windows 7 already has automatic backup scheduling, but not sure if that can be configured for all computers on the network, and that may be why they're digging up old licensed software instead of just configuring it the Windows way (is that problematic?).

I work in a company with almost 80 Windows 7 computer and another 200 or 250 Windows Xp computers in the domain, sometimes when users try to copy information to the File Server (Windows Server 2008) or to the network, the copy starts but never finish. It just stay there and the only way is to force the shut down to the computer and start over copying files one by one, this only happens in Windows 7 computers and does not always happen but it is very common

Is this a Know issue in Windows 7? What can be happening in our Network??

If I try to do the same copy locally on the computer the copy ends successfully, the problem only hapends when the copy is to the network (Just Windows 7 computers, Xp computers works fine)

Thank you all.

I would like to suggest you update the network card driver and run Windows Update to install all the important updates first.

If it does not work, I also would like to suggest you disable the automatic adjustment for the TCP window size on the network to check the issue.

1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

4. Exit the Command Prompt window.
5. Restart the computer.

Greetings Everyone,

I'm new to the forum.

I am planning to buy the stand alone Outlook 2010 and want to be able to install it on my two computers. Will this be a problem. I don't need to buy Office cause I have a copy of Office 2007 Student and I am happy with it.

What is my best route? Buy it online as a download and have 1-3 installs (NOT sure if this is even possible) or buy it at the local computer store?

Help! Please!


A:How Many Computers Can Outlook 2010 Be Installed On?


From the licence agreement it looks like 2 devices (computers) - the licenced device and a portable device, as long as the devices access the same account.

One Copy per Device. You may install one copy of the software on one device. That device is the “licensed device.”
b. Licensed Device. You may only use one copy of the software on the licensed device at a time.
c. Portable Device. You may install another copy of the software on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device."

Please read the licence agreement as linked above.

Hi Team,

I plan to get a mac mini. I would like to have direct access to the machine remotely, just like i did when i connected my laptop pc to my desktop pc via VNC.

My specific question :- is it possible to access the mac via a remote client so that it opens in a window on a Win7 64bit I7 pc?

I ultimately want to control the mac desktop via my win7 pc, mouse and keyboard.

Thanks in advance.

A:Remote Access to Mac mini via VNC client/server

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

Thing is though if you for example have the same word document open on both computers, edit on one it won't update to the other even if the underlying file is synced but if you want to work on the other computer you would have to re open the word document to see any changes.

I am wondering if anyone knows if in word 2010 you can see changes when the underlying file is updated as in word 2007 you can't?

I can not browse to the network or use UNC format from run command to see the server. I can reboot the server and everything is working again. Does Windows 7 have a limit to concurrent connections? And is the server releasing the connections. Every person and shared file has admin rights to read and right to server. ANY THOUGHTS. Thanks JC

A:Wireles network not appearing

and welcome to the Forum

I moved your post to the Networking Forum . .

When you say "We can connect directly to the router but there is no security password" what exactly do you mean.

Let's take a peek at your network:


Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.


Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.


with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.

when I do an IPconfig/all the node type is peer to peer, I have edited the registry and reset the node type and have ensured that TCP over netbios is selected in the IP copnfig. What else do I have to do to get rid of Wins and just use DHCP/DNS for name resolution?

A:VPN Windows 2003 server and Local network

You need to either add a static route to each of the host devices you are trying to reach to point to your VPN server as the gateway to your VPN client or you need to add the static route to the router acting as the default gateway to the 10.0.0.x network to point to the VPN server as the gateway for the VPN client.

OK well since the guy who usually takes care of our network has left the company logging Windows server network Problems to 7 with in I have been thrust rather abruptly into this position I'm fairly computer savvy but I've never done much network administration So I've been upgrading a few computers to Windows Ultimate and after a fair bit of wrangling managed to get them all taken care of except who knew that Win Home couldn't access a simple network wtf But I've got my boss's brand new rig all set up and loaded with all the software necessary but for some reason I can't get it to log in to the server for the life of me I have used identical settings as on the old XP box and have double checked net passwords on the server side I followed the exact same procedure to set up the network as on the other machines But no dice Problem - There is no login window Actually it did come up a few times and I'm not sure why but right now it just automatically logs in and then says that it doesn't have permission Problems logging in to network server with Windows 7 without actually giving me a login window to enter my ID and Password I have gone into the credentials erased them created them changed them Everything under the sun but right now I can't even get a simple login Problems logging in to network server with Windows 7 Unknown factor - when it did give me a login window a couple of times it showed me the name of the path as lt usernamedragon gt which is what I set the computer to so I could access the internet to build the system while the boss was still working with his old box without creating a conflict Unfortunately I have a sneaking suspicion that this is what is causing my problems So I took steps to change this but I can't actually see this name anywhere I've changed the computer name the easy way but it hasn't changed the computer PROFILE I took some steps to try to change this but I can't see if they took effect because there is no login window The login window was the ONLY place that showed me this path I can't see that this would be a legitimate problem but it's hard to say Problem - I don't know why it won't log in correctly I've set all the other settings correctly and these settings have worked on other computers built over the past week and worked just fine for other computers I built before The password is correct the computer name is correct The id is correct The IP settings are all identical What the heck am I doing wrong I've got a professional network specialist coming in in a couple of hours but even he is kind of stumped I need to get this thing fixed tonight while the office is shut down because come Monday morning the boss ain't gonna be too happy Thanks for your assistance

A:Problems logging in to network server with Windows 7

Eschelar, Welcome to the windows 7 forums.
1. Are you trying to logon to the server via Active Directory?
2. Is the boss's computer joined to the domain?
3. Have you setup the network as a work network?
4. Have you setup the network discovery to yes?

A:Network programs through windows 2000 server

You're looking for Terminal Services Application Server - which is built into 2000 Server. You'll have to install the application through add/remove program in a different mode though. Can't remember exactly what the mode is called but it something to the effect of remote use or terminal use installation - been a while since I've done it.

I'd like to build a network at home. I'd like to have a server to which I can connect my other computers. Do I need a server OS? Or I can use my Windows 2000? What hardware do I need? Do I need two network cards installed on my server?

Could you also please tell me good links (or books) where I can search for some information related to this topic?

Hi Guys,

Was wondering, I'm setting up a VPN on a DELL Windows 2000 Server and as I am walking through the wizard setup, the part where it ask what NIC card I want to use for Internet access, this system has only one? So when I select it Windows comes up saying "you have selected the last remaining network card........" or something to that effect...

I am wondering, must there be two NIC cards in the computer before I can setup a VPN?? or by selecting the only one, that I am limiting my VPN connection??
