Q: Server/network problem

Hello I am having a very strange problem between of the computers at work small business problem Server/network - we pay for IT support but they say that they cannot find a problem so therefore are unable to help I ll try to explain the problem - We have a server network with computers and phones Computer computer is where the IT support have looked but see no problem On all the computers we have Roboform toolbar and programme and also Avaya Phone manager Computer - sometimes logs in to Computer s Phone Manager automatically without asking which causes Computer to make phone calls through Server/network problem Computer s phone We have spoken to the software developers who also have no idea how to help Now computer is also logging in to Computer but on roboform which means they have full access to all computer s passwords which they have saved I deleted the Roboform profile on Computer and created a new profile - but when I checked on Computer - their profile is now deleted and is now logged in as Computer Again contacted software developers who have no idea I hope some of that makes sense If someone has any ideas please let me know it s driving me mad and also very unsecure Thanks Jai nbsp

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 have a D-LINK DI-624 Wireless router. I am using Bulletproof FTP SERVER on my computer which on the network ends in the IP .102. I went to my router options and went to DMZ and changed it to ending in .102. For some reason when I access my FTP server with my "network ip", it works, but when trying my real ip (, it doesn't work. Why does this happen? How can I fix it? Thanks.

A:Problem Accessing Ftp Server From Outside The Network

Have you forwareded the FTP ports (in your router setup) to point to your FTP server (the .102 system)?

Also, I've used Bulletproof FTP server and it's an excellent program. BUT! I received an average of 8 attempts to access my system each night after it had been running a while. Make sure you've set good passwords for it!

Hi everyone, ive got a server running windows server 2003, 1 windows 7 pro desktop attached to the router, several other desktops attatched to a switch which then goes into the server and 3 laptops connected via wifi to the router. All of the desktops on the network (the ones connected directly to the server and the one connected to the router) and one of the laptops have internet and are able to access the drives on the server. But the other 2 laptops (which were working fine yesterday) have internet access but when they are unable to access the file server and get a message saying the location is not available. The other laptop is working fine so i can only assume its an issue with the other 2 laptops. I hope you guys can help, I cant think of whats up!

A:Network Server access problem


Do you have a domain configured? If so are the laptops on the Domain?

Check the amount of CALs installed on the Server. Can you give us an IPconfig of the Server and laptops? - Check that the DNS is set to the Server (if applicable).

Hello Guys,

Is there a way via scipting to force a pc to refresh their local printer
settings from the print server ? We have enabled Duplexing as the default for
printing ( conserve that paper ! ) for our HP Laserjet printers on the
Print Server, but if a user goes on their local printer settings and unchecks
duplexing, it will not re-pull that device setting from the print server
unless you delete and then re-add the printer on the local machine. Is there
a way to have the printer settings pulled from the server without have to
delete and then readd the locally installed network printer ?

I'm very knew to the networking scene in my job and I'd like to know if there is a way to test the speed that a file could be transfered from server to server. For example, the file is located on the Brisbane server (\\brisbane) and I would like to transfer it to the Mackay server (\\mackay) located 1000+km away. This file is approx 630MB and I don't want to slow the network traffic down too much so I need to know how long it will take to transfer.

Hi all. We have a number of NT 4 servers, one of which is PRINTSVR, a print server for our NT Workstation network. We have approximately 58 printers setup on this server and for the most part they work great. Something weird is happening, though, on an irregular basis.

On occasion the server will not print Excel spreadsheets and the only way to get it to print them is to reboot. It's not a specific printer problem because once this starts it affects all the printers. The print jobs run through their respective queues indicating that they're spooling, printing, and then they disappear and nothing comes out of the printer(s).

One of our employees has mentioned that she has noticed that the problem occurs after she has attempted to cancel a job. The next time she attempts to print from Excel nothing happens.

Any ideas? Anything would help.

A:win nt 4.0 server connecting to mac network


Do your MAC machines use AppleTalk? If so, then you will need to install AppleTalk the protocol on the Server.

Open up the networking Applet in Control panel. Go to the protocols tab, and click on the "Add" button. From the list, somewhere will be AppleTalk. Select it. You might be asked now for your NT server CD. Make sure the Cd is in the CD-ROM. After installation, reboot. You should also rerun the service pack.

A:Server - my own Wireless network

If you follow this tutorial while your wifi is connected to the net follow this totorial
Internet Connection Sharing - Enable

But substitute the way the tut says pick your Wifi connection and share that with your lan card.

I do this with my wifi and connect my computers and another wifi router with a 8 port network switch. The only part where you will have to do some digging is finding out how to turn your router into a access point. The only reason I use a network switch ( sometimes called a dumb router ) is because all my lan cards are gigabit and my wifi router is 100 megabits also the other benefit of a network switch is there is no configuration needed just plug everything in and it works. If you get your laptop connected with no problems we can tackle your access point later

Just to clarify connect your laptop to the PC with a lan cable no need to get special cable Gigabit lans should auto sense what type of cable it is

I m cautious to post this in networking because it may end a Access MS over SQL network Server to up being a SQL Access error in the end but we don t have a solid lead on where this bottleneck is occuring For a project we re currently working on we have a local access database that contains various MS Access to SQL Server over a network tables for a PC inventory containing roughly PCs and related apps hardware etc The database sits at around MB on disk all told and interfaces with an MS-SQL server back end The database is loaded out onto flash drives and given to various assessors and deployers for use We have a MS Access to SQL Server over a network version that draws directly from the SQL tables but we also have a local version that updates local tables only so it can be used directly on the workstations being assessed without the ODBC connection to the server The issue comes with uploading the local data to the SQL server When sitting in the data center where the SQL server is located the upload of all of the local tables takes roughly minutes This is on a gigabit link hovering around - mb s utilization When we take the database out to a remote site hospital environment large pipes the upload time balloons out into the hour or two hour region The issue here is that the utlization hovers around or - mb s on a gigabit link out at the remote sites when files can be transferred alongside the SQL upload from the data center without issue We ve asked the network team to look into any sort of policies or subnet issues that might affect the traffic differences we re seeing but they re slow to take any of the fault in the matter What I m looking for are any possible root causes on the network end or any firsthand knowledge of the manner in which Access update queries would throttle back based on response times nbsp

Hello People I am having a slight issues configuring the network cards on my server I have a onboard network card and a additonal one and both cards have on server 2 network cards been detected on the network connections The operating system i am running in windows serve which has the hyper v console on it my aim is to run virtual machines on hyper v I was told i should use one 2 network cards on server network card for the physical host and the nd network card for the virtual machines Im not sure how to set this up or if i have set this up I have created a virtual switch on hyper v and have selected which network card will be used for the virtual machines however in network connections only one network card seems active how do i know which card is being used for the physcial or if its been used or shared with the virtual host This seems very confusing and i would appreciate your help Thanks nbsp

A:2 network cards on server

There are some configurations (usually involving more than one server) which recommend and/or require two or more network adapters, but you don't need two nics just to be able to have network access on your VMs in Hyper-V.

When you created virtual network switch and assigned nic to it, that is the nic your VMs use for network access.

If I remember it right, depending on the options you chose:
-VMs may be on their own network (no host access or Internet);
-VMs and host;
-VMs, host, Internet.

Welcome to the windows 7 forums Gazza13

first you need to log onto the machine as an administrator and un join from the domain that you were joined to.

If you know the password of the local machine administrator account, you can log on to the local machine instead of the domain and then unjoin from the domain.

Hi I am trying to use the FTP client integrated into windows 7 to connect to a local server all the other machines on this network can connect to. All the settings seem the same. The server allows 50 concurrent connections. I am not sure why this one machine (LAN over Gigabit Switch) can't connect with the same credentials as all other machines on the network. I've looked at the firewall settings and allowed port 21 for the negotiation of the connection and listing the directory.

I am going to make a new user and password and see if that solves it.

A:Can't connect to FTP Server from one PC on the Network

I have my home server in a room upstairs and I want to be able to take over control of its desktop mouse keyboard from my wifi laptop which I have in my living room I have tried Remote Desktop and Remote Assisitance so far and from what I can gather here are the drawbacks according to network one's elsewhere the Controlling server from on what I want to do Remote Desktop - The problem with this is that the administrator of the server has to log back into windows once the remote desktop session has finished and of course this cannot be done remotely - not an ideal situation for a file server that is in a room upstairs Controlling one's server from elsewhere on the network I have tried setting the windows registry to auto-logon which works when switching the PC on but not when coming off a Remote Desktop session Remote Assistance - The invitation thing makes it annoying because I would have to keep going to the server every so often to set up invitations Is there any other option that you think is better for what I need I want to be able to Controlling one's server from elsewhere on the network control the home server without ever coming close to it I want there to be full trust between the two PCs so that I won t have to invite approve invite etc I don t really want the server to log off as the normal user either like with remote desktop thanks nbsp

My desktop with Vista is the one that is wired. I could see the desktop server name under the network on Macbook OS X Yosemite and could get any files I want to from the desktop. However, it's not the reverse. I must have turned something off without realizing its affecting the networking. I did check the services and make sure anything related to network, remote, and peer sharing is all automatic and started. Still no luck...

Hi all

i know this is not related to win7, but i just wanna know if i can have 2 Domain Controllers with different names, on the same network without they know each other on the network ?

like a test system ?

we have our running DC1 - and i want to add another DCT with another name for Test.
but on the same network so i can use our RDS on DC1 to connect to DCT ?

A:Server question - 2 DC's on same network

I believe so. I thought, with Server 2008 and up, there's no such thing as a PDC (Primary Domain Controller) anymore. I have two servers on my corporate network that act as DCs....both running Active Directory. I was told this was a good idea, in case one server goes down, the other handles AD roles. AD is replicated between the two.

Try the local password you assigned it when you installed NT. This is normal behavior for member servers.

Trying to work in a small business we have 3 pc's networked (or used to be). Our back office pc can no longer access the network. The pc I'm working from is the "admin" and if I try accessing the back office pc from my workstation, I get an error saying the 'backoffice' server is not connected to the network. No changes have been made that I'm aware of and cannot figure out how to correct the problem. None of us are networking people. Does anyone know what I should be looking for?


A:server not found on network

Check the following links for advice on how to find the problem:

Lots of good information there; if you don't understand something, just ask for an explanation here. Seems like PART of your network is functioning, so you should be able to narrow this down pretty quickly.

My first suggestion is to reboot the computer that seems to be off the network (which you've referred to as the "backoffice server"). Once that has been done, reboot the other computer (the one you call the admin" system). Rebooting each system gives both computers a good chance of being able to "see" one another; minor network glitches happen all the time, so a fresh reboot is always the best first step. That way, you know the network connections have just been reestablished, and you can work forward from there. This method doesn't solve every problem, but it is certainly worth a try before you start chasing cables and trying to apply "spaghetti logic" to the problem.

Your next step is to try to find the server from the admin system again; your problems might be solved by the reboots. If that doesn't work after the reboot, right-click on the Network Neighborhood icon and select the "Find Computer" option. Type in the network name of the other computer, and let Windows try to locate the server that way. Be patient, this can take a few minutes.

If still no joy, reboot the third system, then try to connect to each computer from the third system. If the third system can find both the "server" and the "admin" computers, you know the basic network is functional, and that the problem is most likely between those two systems. If any two computers can find one another, but neither "sees" the third system, the third system (or the network connection to it) is probably the culprit.

Keep that in mind; if two of them respond to one another, and the third one doesn't, focus on the third system. Check the network connections, starting at the back of the computer and working away from it.

One other thing to be aware of; if each system can still browse the Internet (as long as they have been configured to do so originally, of course) then you know the problem is confined to your LAN. If any of them that usually have Internet access CANNOT browse the 'net ( try to open Google, Yahoo, and as a test), then you'll know the problem affects BOTH the connection to the LAN and the access to the Internet.

The important points here are not to rush; take your time, be logical and methodical in your approach to solving this, and your chances of success increase greatly.

If you don't have a good basic grasp of networking in general, check here to get familiar with how networks function:

Don't worry that those sites are referring to a home network; your office network isn't likely to differ much (if at all) from what is presented in those tutorials.

Good luck; ask any questions you might have about this, or if you need a clarification on something, and we'll try to help you resolve this without a lot of fuss or heartburn.

I have Comodo Free Firewall installed on my PCs.

I can't see the NAS-Server under "Network". I have to connect via \\HomeNas\
Then a Window shows up and I can login.

My Question:
What is the reason that the NAS doesn't show up in "Network".

I have disconnected the internet from my router and deactived the Comodo firewall on my PC to see what happens. But no luck.

Thanks for your help.

Have you made sure that the NAS server is in the same workgroup or domain as the Win 7 machines? This could be a reason why it doesn't appear.

Follow the above tutorial to find out the workgroup and to change it if necessary.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any appropriate steps on how to check or change the workgroup on the NAS itself

A:Solved: New network server upgrade HELP

I'd like to make a suggestion. You currently have a netowrk of 10 users? You should consider purchasing a server and running etiher server 03 or server 08. If you have to completely redo the network, might as well as step completely up to the 21st century. With the specs you noted, you could pickup a Dell Poweredge server for like $800 and I assume you will spend close to that in parts. I understand purchasing the server license will be a little pricey, but the benefits of running an actual server OS is quite beneficial. User control, dhcp services, plus the system would be designed to handle more workstation for future expansion. You with 5 or more users, you should consider an actual server. Just a suggestion! Because I'll be honest, what you are trying to accomplish as is, will be quite a challenge as it is. Might as well bite the bullet and go a step further.

It is telling me that no ip address can be found and when I ipconfiged it with renew and all it still could not find it. It gave me an error message that says cannot connect to DHCP server.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you,

A:Network could not connect to DHCP server

Nothing really comes to mind, but if you're using Window's Wireless Zero Configuration maybe you need to reconfigure your wireless connection; especially if your network is protected with encryption.

I use the utilities from my wireless cards' manufacturers to connect to my WPA protectecd network and had no trouble today after the same reboot (two notebooks). Well, same reboot if you're talking about the critical update released yesterday.

When trying to connect via network neighborhood I get: "Not possible to access \\Computername" and "network path was not found". I encounter the above problem only with my two XP SP2 machines. These XPs are part of a 10Base2 coaxial cable and BNC connectors network. There is a router (DHCP) that distributes ip addresses. Other OS's in the network are Linux and windows 98. This problem occur inspite of "seeing" the other computer on the "network neighborhood" and only when trying to connect to it from an XP. If I try to connect from 98 or Linux there is no problem. I disabled the firewalls on both XPs. But to no avail :-( What else can I try?
Thank for any possible help.

I just bought a new 500 GB network server, and I hooked it into my wireless router (Netgear MR814v2). I wanted to transfer a bunch of files to it from my laptop, which accesses the network wirelessly (probably not a word, but you know what I mean), but the first time I went to transfer a 4 GB iso file, it came up that the transfer was going to take 149 minutes. Now granted, that's a big file, but that's pretty slow. I should point out (if it's not obvious) that I know next to nothing about networking. I've fudged my way through it so far, but I want to be able to speed up the file transfer in order to use this drive effectively.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Dear all:
I have an in-house W2K Server OS that has finance application software running on it. Recently a lot of my users are experiencing connection time-out problem when running that finance application's client software on the client machines. All the users can still go on internet and access local file sharing.

Is it a NIC hardware problem or it is a W2K Server DHCP problem? I have users who obtain IP from DHCP as well as fixed IP. Or the bandwidth is not big enough to handle all clients' usage (current 10/100Mbps base for 20 concurrent usage)?

Thank you all... >__<

A:Network Connection Time-Out over Server

If other things work OK for the same users then the problem is not with the NICs or the DHCP.

Maybe the server is under heavy load or the number of simultaneous connections to it is limited? Check the server logs to find out and check the CPU.

When the timeout occurs, can the clients still ping the server? Maybe you hav some faulty cables or networking gear somewhere between the clients and the server?

My question is this.
Is there some way I can select to backup the PST Outlook 2013 file or folder containing it and My Documents folder from each of the 9 machines? Is it possible to do it incrementally after the initial backup is done?
Or Is there a way to say, set the Outlook folder that contains the pst file as a shared folder on the network, then somehow have that backup to a folder on the server each night?

According to the author, who goes by the name quidsup (also in youtube, under same name, known for his Linux videos):

NoTrack is a network-wide DNS server which blocks Tracking websites from creating cookies or sending tracking pixels. It does this by resolving the IP address of known tracking sites to a web server running on the NoTrack device inside your network.Click to expand...

Current build/version is 0.7.8, available at:

A:Help,build first network and file server Please

OK, let's start from the top.

First: Do you know how to configure a Cisco router, they aren't plug and play, and they don't have a GUI interface. It might be easier to use a Netgear router, they have a very simple, yet advanced interface and work great. You could probably put your Cisco router on eBay to set off the cost of the new router.

Second: The File Server. Personally I would never use XP for a server. It can be done, but it won't be working at it's full potential. Use Windows 2000 Server. You can set it up in two modes: workgroup or domain. Using a workgroup is easier and quicker to set up, but if you plan on supporting more than 10 computers you should consider setting up a domain.

With the equipment you have, the network should run fine. I think most importantly, however, you should stay away from using XP for your server.

Any other questions are welcome.

What does the event viewer for those 3 workstations say for system alerts? At 3pm.

What task schedule did you setup on those workstations?
What does those workstation do?
Anyone using them or are they autorun for certain task?

Did you setup DNS, Active Directory on the main Server?
Does this server have enough license certs for all the devices on your network?

Again you're running something on the network that you overlook otherwise those 3 systems won't down like that unless you have some schedule task setup on your end as the admin?

Might be tough, depending on the security emplyed at the school.

You will definately have to open up some ports at your router - the manual for the storage link should tell you (if not, you'll need to call Linksys)

Hey I am trying to remove our network s dependency on a Server file system that we used primarily for backing up user files I wasn t here issues network Server 2000 when the system was installed but I ve found that the server also controlled internet access to the network as well Since we don t need this service anymore we ve decided to remove the server from the network when we got new Server 2000 network issues computers for everyone The problem I am having is that all the computers that have XP installed on them still can get onto the internet when the server has been turned off but every computer with Vista installed on them won t connect to the internet under the same conditions I know it has something to do with the server because when I turn the server back on internet access is restored to the Vista computers I didn t know which OS thread to post under but since I m hoping that all I need to do is reconfigure the Vista computers I placed it in this forum Edit I also wanted to add that the quot server quot we currently have is not the original server just a plain dell tower like the previous and that the Server software says that there is another server on the network though there isn t but is still in control of internet access for the said Vista machines I appreciate any help that can be given Thanks nbsp

In our office occasionally our NT server (version 4 sp4) stops communicating over the network, the lights go out on the network card and no one can access the server. Then it comes back on again, for no apparent reason.

I thought it might be a hardware fault with the network card but I'm not sure.

Looking in the event viewer all I can find that might relate to this problem is this:

The browser has forced an election on network \Device\NetBT_HPTX1 because a master browser was stopped.

It is a HP Netserver E60 PIII500, 128 MB.
