Preferred Solution: VPN Server software...Please recommend

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

You dont need DNS if its on your own network.

Are you running a static or a dynamic IP with your ISP? Have you registered your domain name with a registrar and had it linked to your IP address?

I very occasionally need to send a fax from home. It would be handy to have a (preferably free) bit of software for that purpose. What would you recommend? I have Xp sp2, 2mb connection and Microsoft Office if that is useful information...
 

A:Can you recommend fax software?

I use the free version of eFax but I think to send faxes they charge a small fee depending on how many pages you send.

Hello I need some recommendations and advice for running a user-friendly win software for a small business.

Basically, I've got a bunch of suppliers, bunch of customers, bunch of products and a bunch of orders. The latter takes data from the 3 'bunches' before it. New products are added on everyday. I need a computer program that can organise all this data (including photos for the Products list) on a computer network AND be viewable on a smartphone. I'm open to any software and any smartphone.

I would like to ask some advice

I have recently purchased a Dell T105 Workstation/Server.

I aim to use it as a multi-media hub of sorts to store Videos, music, photos etc that can be accessed
by all the other computers on my network (and from the net). I want use it as a server (with no keyboard, mouse or screen attached).

It came with no O/S installed (I parted with only one ?20 note ).
So my question is, as its a workstation/server, which O/S would suit my needs best.....I was just going to install Microsoft Windows Home server on it? (anyone used this and if so would it suit my needs?).

Maybe one of you guys has a better, more practical option or suggestion?

Any advice is much appreciated

Cheers

Dave

A:What O/S do you recommend for my Dell T105 Workstation/server?

Hi there Dave,

Windows Home Server would be fine if you was just going to use it as a multi-media hub or even what I prefer to use is Windows Server 2008 just incase I want to do other things and run other applications etc...

You could of saved a bit of money by buying a NAS and using that to store photo's and videos etc.. But hey ho .

Hi

I need to do some research for a client who wants to purchase a new software package to streamline their current processes. What sort of questions should I ask the client about their requirements? So far I have:-

QUESTION

What system do you use now? (paper-based or electronic)
What do you want this software to be able to do?
What budget have you set to purchase this new software including licensing?
What operating system does it have to run on?
What are your PC hardware specifications?

What else should I ask to make sure all bases are covered before I recommend anything?

A:Please recommend HD restoration software

This thread should probably have been located in the backup and recovery section.

Maybe a mod will move it there.

You need to hope Jumanji sees this thread.

As I understand it, you've installed Windows in the same partition in which your 110,000 data files were located. If that's true, lower your expectations.

There are several applications that might come into play, but I wouldn't just run off and start using them. You need guidance.

Those tools would include Partition Wizard, Photorec, and Testdisk. You might at least download them.

You might also think about a professional recovery service, at $500 on up, depending on what value you place on these files.

My fiance subscribed to a Norton Antivirus service a couple of years ago, paid up front for a year and the service was withdrawn after two months, with no refund. I'm not sure of the exact details, but my point is that she hasn't got any antivirus protection on either of her computers!!

Now, I've been directed to both the Trend Micro and Pandasoftware sites by the security experts here, and I'd imagine there are many other similar places that offer both a free online scan, as well as full, paid-for, antirus protection. And I'm sure opinions differ on which is the best lol.

Having just been helped by people here to clean up both computers, I'm now going to spend some money on antivirus software in order to help keep them clean. Any recommendations

A:Which Antivirus software would you recommend?

I am a believer in Norton. I recommend Norton Internet Security 2005. It offers add block, awesome virus protection for both incoming and outgoing email, excel files, etc., SPAM filtering, and even has some Parental controls. Others that I spoke to have had minimal if any issues since they have installed one of Symatec's packages. Auto update of virus definitions makes updates easy.

Please can any recommend a free and safe conversion software to change files (music) from MP4 to MP3, I have got a MP3 / MP4 Player and burned the songs via a Sony software that I usually use for my other Sony Walkman MP3 / MP4 Player. Even though, this MP3 Player plays MP4, it is has messed the songs up and made them to MP4 - so I would have to re-burn all the discs again . A quick look on the web and it shows plenty of conversion software options, and looks like it may be a minefield if you get a dodgy one. Recommendations for a free, safe and reliable software would be great. Wish I still had access to Nero though, it would be great for this

I need a fax software with some features that are not in XP:

- control over the speed at which the touch-tone dialing is sent, including tone length and spaces between tones. I need it slower and with pauses; XP goes too fast for the long-distance carrier I use and attempts frequently fail.

- good recognition of a busy signal. XP sits on a busy way too long before time-out.

- fax forwarding based on the caller ID, so certain faxes can get automatically sent to a different machine. Feature not in XP.

Any suggestions?

I am sure symantec has stopped selling and support for winfax, but you can still get it in place like staples/ office world and online, but you will need 10.2 and upwards to work on xp, and don't think there be any vista support, I am not to keen on symantec software but i have used winfax for years, best fax software I have come across.

i was thinking about picasa, or the one from kodak that you get when you get your digital pics back... but i've heard that that one is kind of like spyware because they developed it to use online to "share" your photos. when you use it, does it automatically "phone home" to the mother-ship and store a copy.

I have decided to buy her a laptop first of all then install an interactive tutorial software that takes her step by step through the journey of learning computers.

Can anyone please recommend a program or a bunch of programs for her to learn with. Keep in mind that she doesn't have internet at her location. She's pretty much educated and teaches chemistry . Just for a brief background so it should be pretty easy with any program.

Thanks a lot. Much appreciated.

A:Recommend good packet writing software?

If you were happy with DirectCD go back to it. The problem is that you canít get it without the package and it is expensive. Most people consider DirectCD to be the best packet writing software and Nero to be the best all around mastering software.

RecordNow has a packet writing component (DLA) and has a free trial. The damage is only $40 if you like DLA. It has a Prassi engine for the mastering software which I personally like. Iím still using the Prassi software on my old Plextor but will probably try RecordNow when I upgrade. http://www.stompinc.com/recordnowmax/index.phtml?stp

Hey folks, I've been trying to get at some .dds images - you'd think with how widely used they are now there would be native support or at least an optional download, eh.

I heard MysticThumbs was good, but it's trialware. Then I came across SageThumbs, which sounds like it fits the bill perfectly.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work on the .dds files I have:
As you can see the standalone program DXTBmp can open the .dds file just fine - but unlike an Explorer extension like SageThumbs you'd need to open every single image one by one to find what you're looking for. Yeahhh, nope. SageThumbs doesn't seem to have trouble with my other images though (just did a cursory check, didn't really look hard). It just fails on those files I need it to work on

Does anyone know of any other explorer extension for Win7 x64 that can display .dds image files?

A:Recommend software to display more image formats in Explorer

This is from Nvidia but I think it works on some ati cards too.

How can I view .DDS files in Windows?

The major problem is that Windows doesn't know what .DDS files are. This means that none of the standard Microsoft graphics programs can open them, and they won't show as thumbnails in your folders.

However, two freeware programs are available to deal with this problem.
First, you should definitely download IrfanView. - http://www.irfanview.com/ - This is a simple program that enables you to view and resize graphics files, including .DDS files. Using this program you can look at the files without having to start up Celestia - which is handy. Warning: although DDS files load very swiftly in Celestia, they take a long time to load into a graphics viewer - it will take several minutes for a 16k DDS file to load into IrfanView. Don't look at them unless you really want to.

Second, you might want to go to this NVidia website - http://developer.nvidia.com/object/nv_t ... tools.html - and download the DDS Thumbnail Viewer. This is a program that will enable .DDS textures to show up as thumbnails when you're looking at folders in Windows Explorer. Another warning: it takes the computer ages to produce these thumbnails, so long that you may well get annoyed and switch the folder back to normal icon view. It's frustratingly slow, but I guess this may still be a useful utility at times; you decide.

Hi,

I'm looking for some hard drive backup/restore software with some specific requirements: I need to be able to backup a partition into a single file (ideally compressed) then this must be able to be restored from a USB drive/stick. Ideally if there was an option to make the USB memory stick bootable so all the user needed to do was insert the stick, boot the PC and follow the restore instructions - that would do the job.

I've used Ghost (ages ago) which I believe could do something similar but I'm not sure that the latest version will from what I've read.

It sounds like you're looking for some type of Holy Grail software that fixes all problems. No such thing.

It is not exactly what you are asking about, but have you considered using Opera Unite?

I don't know of any GOOD free FTP clients. When I used to do a lot of FTP transfers I found Cute FTP to be a very user friendly program.

A friend of mine tried Smart FTP and said he liked it but he wasn't a power user. It was just a one time use.

Try googling CuteFTP and/or Smart FTP and/or 'free FTP client'. Tons of crap will come up.

Hey,

What security software can i get for a home server?

Could someone please tell me what the best one would be?

And a possible list of company's that do security software for home servers.

Thanks.
 

A:Security Software For A Server

Well, for Encryption you should use TrueCrypt.

For Anti-Virus - Use Symantec corperate editon, Nod-32, or Bitdefender total security.

For a firewall, you should use ZoneAlarm.

I came from a NT server network enviroment to a Windows 2000 server network. There are some differences. The only training classes I find are for Windows 2003. Is there enough similarities in the two to get anything out of Windows 2003 courses. Your input is greatly appreciated.

I want to install Office XP on my server for use by my users (Corporate Environment). I only want to install XP one time with all the drivers, and settings the same....in other words I want to create an image of the completed install on my server so that each user can install the software at their station without needing the CD or the product key....is this possible and can anyone help me?

Thanks...Ken

It is not hard as long as you have the Corporate version of Office XP.

My firm has a number of PC s running Winfax software to print faxes direct from any application under Win se After various tribulations involving putting a correct line in Win ini believe me this works Fax software server recommendations just fine and is an excellent solution It s expensive on individual phome lines however so we wanted a networked fax solution with just one PC acting as a fax server The network is Novell IP only We were advised to use RelayFax and installed it on a brand-new Win XP pro server PC There are problems well basically it doesn t work First we found we have to add Microsoft client for networking as well as the Novell client on each PC before we could even see the fax server Having sorted that the faxing works but Fax server software recommendations extremely erratically Sometimes fax pages are not sent sometimes a cover page several times and no furthe pages oh you name it Are we douing anything wrong or do we just junk it and get something else Any recommendations welcome but please only if you know it works in our specific environment - Win clients IP protocol Novell server nbsp

I am thinking about upgrading our server at work and I am trying to put together some rough numbers for hardware and software to see if the project will get any support One I Do Server really Windows software? need big ticket item is the operating system In my environment I can t see the benefit of something like Server rather than Do I really need Windows Server software? XP Our current network is composed of about XP based pc s and one NT server It was originally setup as a client server but evolved to a peer to peer with the server being just a place to store data on drives in a RAID configuration We have two primary applications that use shared data One is Microsoft Access which will work just fine on peer to peer The other is Peachtree Complete Accounting This is the one that depends on the structure of the network the most Previous versions where compatible with NT but the latest version of the software required Windows Server or for client server operation But since it will also function in a peer to peer environment we just changed the location of the data to one of the XP boxes All the pc s can access the internet through a SMC router that is connected to a satellite so currently we are in no way depending on the server for that What are the downsides for me if I just build a pc with raid drives and such but go with XP rather than Server Should I consider Vista Budget is a definite concern So I don t want to have to spend a lot on software if I don t have to And I don t have a lot of time to manage it either so simpler is better too Any thoughts on a recommended processor and or board I am thinking about a Dual AMD Opteron Thanks nbsp

Why are there so many different requirements for a single piece of software for a server? Or for a server operating system? One I recently had to research for work had... 12 different server models with 12 different hardware configurations listed.

What makes servers so radically different from normal computers that a single piece of software changes from physical machine to physical machine?

Hello, I have been searching for a good application which enables me to stream content to my Philips 7000 series 3D LED television.
I previously have been using my PS3 for this with PS3 Media Server, and I'm looking for a similar application for my PC to stream directly to my TV.

If anyone can name one or a few, whether it's free or payed, I would be much obliged.

Thank you

Hi all

i currently use 'iDrive' which does a daily backup of my computer. This is all good but i have got my own web server which has a 1 TB hard disk inside and is always connected to my home network and the internet.

I am looking for a piece of software (preferably free) that family and friends can use on their computers and connect to my server and backup their important documents automatically.

Without sounding horrid, a lot of my friends and family are not very experienced with computers and so i am needing a piece of software that once setup it will backup their documents and pictures etc with out them having to do anything or only having to press a few buttons.

Not sure if this type of software exists but if anybody knows of software that does this i would be very grateful.

Thank you

JPLamb
