No server running on remote software

Q: No server running on remote software

We have a customer that has a Speco DVR for their cameras. When they try to login with their Iphone, it says no server running. When they try to login using a PC or Mac, it says cannot display web page. If the DVR is restarted, it will allow remote viewing, but only for a limited time. All ports have been forwarded. Is there something else in the firewall settings?

Preferred Solution: No server running on remote software

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:Help me connect to remote server running smb

Hello Shadowjk

You write: "... if you could run Windows SMS file sharing ..."

That is what we do. SMB file sharing IS enabled on the server. My original post was this: Help me connect to remote server running smb and that is whatr I hope to find a way to solve.

It was just that when I saw this FTP topic I thought pewrhaps that was a way to do it. Apparently not.

So I'm still stuck ... i don't know ho to access the remote server from a computer running Win 7 Professional. I know nothing about how to map a share.

The short story is: I know the IP-address and I have the username and password - how do I connect to retrieve data and store files?

I just built my first program in C#, which I'm excited about. I want to offer it for a download on my site. When I click the link to MyApp.exe in Firefox, it downloads just fine, but when I click the link in Internet Explorer, it doesn't open the download dialog box. Rather, it seems to actually run the program on the remote server. Besides moving the program to a zip file, what can I do to make sure that Internet Explorer users can't run the program on the remote server, but can only download it?

Thank you,

A:Remote server is running my .exe rather than allowing it to be downloaded!

Hi ladies and gentleman!

I am searching for reliable, secure, and fast Remote Support Package and/or Remote Administration Software on the enterprise level.

I know about RealVNC, TightVNC, Windows Built-in Remote Support, but Iím looking for something ďmoreĒ reliable, with less user interaction & knowledge required.

Anyone on here know of any out on the market? Iíd appreciate any links or information that you could provide.

It would be great if someone has actually tested or used some of the software & could recommend it, but even if you havenít used them any type of reference would be greatly appreciated.

A:Remote Server Not Accessible - Remote Procedure Call Failed

I can't think of any off hand that would restrict just one resource - that's not to say there aren't though.  Here's what you can do to check the Services:
Note that you must be logged in as a Domain Admin or have Local Admin privileges on the machines.
Start up two instances of services.msc.
On one of them connect to one of the Windows 7 machines that is working properly.  The other leave connected locally.  
Now go down the list and make sure the services on your machine match the services on the working machine.  If they don't, change them so that they do.  Pay particular attention to the Server and Workstation services.  Also the Remote Procedure
Call and RPC Endpoint Mapper services.

Same as you'd do a remote desktop connection from an XP machine to an XP mmachine

Click to expand...

well, you cannot connect to the server in your company using remote desktop unless your machine and the server share the same IP bundle / are in the same domain.
An alternative is that you can use VPN to create a secure connection into your company's network and that should allow you to do a terminal session on the server.
However you will have to talk to your IT team if you want this done.

Hi all I would like to connect Connecting server remote to to my work server from home Connecting to remote server I will give some detail and hope some one can point me in the right direction Ok work server is as follows - Windows Server set up as a domain running exchange ADSL broadband connection Home - PC network with a standard HUB Win XP one Windows Me and the rest Linux all internet sharing through the XP machine which is directly connected to the cable internet Equipment at my disposal- Dlink Broadband router ports and one WAN port So how do I do this I want all seven PC s at home to access the internet but the broad band router has ports Can I uplink connect my home Hub to the router and does the Router connect directly to my cable modem How do I find the work server and do I need something like tight VCN to acces it Thanks in advance for your help Michiba nbsp

A:Connecting to remote server

Connect the hub to one of the lan ports on the router.
Remove any of the ICS stuff your currently doing this is no longer needed.
Connect all 7 clients to the remaining lan ports on either the hub or the router depending on proximity the only difference between the 2 links is you have an added point of failure.

Hook up the Cable internet modem to the router as you would any standard home network hookup.

With regards to remote access if you want ALL of your clients at your home to access the server I would definitely suggest a VNC solution you can use RD for a Windows to Windows connection.

On the home side you don't have to do anything but install the client to connect into the VNC but on the work side you have to setup the VNC server and have it listening on whatever port you want it setup on. THen you have to allow all firewalls (both router and software to let throse ports onto thats server (though the router you use port forwarding).

Then to connect in from your home you have to use your works WAN IP in the home VNC clients.

How do I let more than 2 people connect to my Windows 2003 Server? Do I have to buy a license or is there some kind of configuration I can do that will let me allow more users to log on?

A:Remote Server Licenses

There is a limit of two users for Terminal Services in admin mode on 2003 server, it would be unadvisable to give people admin access to your server unless of course they are admins.

What you are likely looking for is Terminal Services licensing, you can connect an unlimited numbeer of people provided you have the horsepower and licensing.

I would use VPN endpoint routers/firewalls for any VPN connectivity. Having a server you are using for other tasks as a VPN server is not a good security practice as you must expose the server to the internet.

So I've been (succesfully) going to this site in the past until two-three days ago. I use Opera but it didn't work with FireFox either, and I doubt it'd work with Internet Explorer. =3= I googled "proxy" and clicked some random stuff and somehow it works when using a proxy? (albeit it loads very slowly and it doesn't show everything, I couldn't really click on stuff either).

I did a ping test, by the way. So I don't think there's anything actually wrong with my connection. I asked other people if they could access the site and they could. :/

EDIT: Nevermind, it's fixed. I didn't even do anything, suddenly I could go back on it. Sorry for the people with a similar problem. :[

A:Remote print server

Not my field of expertise but if I understand the question, using the print server plugged into the router, if it is a wireless router, you can print from it anywhere in the house. You can create a static IP address for the print server as well in Windows which would make finding it a lot easier.

You could try setting up a DHCP reservation for your home machine's IP in your routers network settings page. That way it will get the same IP assigned like it was static but the rest of your home network can still use DHCP.

I need some advice from you experts I have a windows server machine set up to manage a system called CARES The server is running through a Nortel switch then out to two terminals in my shop that we use to manage the server Yesterday connection just dropped We weren t able to get pings out to the server After some basic troubleshooting we found out that Windows firewall had re-enabled itself on the two terminals and with its image it won t allow pings to go out So after turning off the firewall we were able to get pings to go to the server However the pings are acting very oddly We ll get some back then a few quot request timed out s quot then a few back rinse and repeat We can t figure out why This is happening for all the machines connected to the server We had a red light on the extra NIC that s installed on the server so we switched our cable to the integrated NIC and are now getting green light but still dropping pings Any ideas nbsp

A:Server 2008 remote desktop

If you must do a naked RDC connection, then you'll need to set up a port forward rule on your home's firewall to allow inbound connections on TCP port 3389 to the private IP address of your Server 2008. This is assuming your place of work does not have firewall restrictions preventing RDP connections outbound from their network.

A much more secure way to do this is to set up a VPN tunnel and then run a RDP connection to the server. Or at a minimum if your work place has a static IP address is to set up a firewall rule on your home's firewall to only allow RDP connections from the IP address of your work.

The "Home Premium" version of Windows that comes with most retail computers includes a one-sided (and intentionally crippled) Remote Desktop subsystem that allows my computer to connect to other computers, but doesn't allow other users on my network to remotely control my computer from their desktops. Is there any free software that can take the place of the missing RDP server component? (I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm a cheap S.O.B. who doesn't want to pay to upgrade Windows on all the machines on my home network, especially when this is the only component from the pricier versions that I want or need.)

Hey guys.

I have a file server (Windows XP Pro) that Iíve moved to my home. It is hooked up to a 2Wire Broadband Router (it has 5 RJ-45 ports) along with my other work PC (Also XP). I have successfully connected both machines to the internet, and have set-up file sharing. However, very soon other employees out of state will need access to the file server. I was thinking to have them use their Windows XP Remote Desktop to connect, but not quite sure how to set this up, as the file server has the private IP How do I get other people to remotely access my server from their PC's? Also, do I have to set the file server as the DMZ on my 2Wire for this to work properly? Thanks for the help!

A:Remote Desktop on Server Question

Assign a static IP to the "file server" (using the router's "reserve an address" feature if it has it).

Forward the Remote Desktop port(s) to that static IP.

Unless you have a static public IP sign up for a service such as DynDNS, so that the others can access you by name.

Here is the domain registration details- [deleted by mod]

The admin that pays for the hosting and the like has paid up to date, in fact all registrations etc have been paid in the past month as per usual. The real problem is, our site is still offline, and we are losing regular visiting members and posters to the forums.

A:Error! Could not locate remote server

Hi Shakya!

The problem here could be with your DNS settings. It is the DNS server which is usually responsible for translating a domain name to the domain server and redirecting a website request. Something like >

What you can do is that ping your DNS server and see if the response time is slow. IMO anything less then 400ms is good.

If the DNS seems slow then you can use a public DNS such as open DNS. Just change your DNS seetings to manual (in you rrouter if you are using one, else in your modem/computer as applicable) and change the values to

Primary DNS -
Secondary DNS -

This is in case you wish to use Open DNS. To know more about this service you can check out their website @; There are plenty of other free public dns servers so you can google them and ping them to see which one gives you a better response time.

Hope this helps!


P.S- Just to make sure, to ping you dns, check your network connection properties and note down the values in front of DNS servers; Next open a command prompt (Start > Run > cmd > OK/enter) qnd type 'ping <DNS SERVER VALUES>' without the quotes qnd press enter: This will show you the response time of your DNS server.

If all systems are on your LAN, then a mapped drive is THE proper approach. Security is a non-issue and there is minimal data movement
to the backup system and/or attached HD.

I am wondering if it would be practical to use RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol?) on an Win Server 2003 server to connect to another pc over the internet for the sole purpose of sending backups.Click to expand...

yes this can be done, but usually RDP is for managing the remote system, not data backups.

How secure is it? Can i make it more secure? What do i need to make it secure and how?
I can setup RDP but before I do, I wanted to research more into this topic concerning the security of it. I read somewhere that I would need to use PKI to send authentication certificates to prevent MITM (Man in the Middle) Attacks. Is this necessary? How can I set this up if needed?Click to expand...

research; never get enough of it!

Most products encrypt the data stream so that no one can tell what is happening.
However, some only encrypt the data, not the login and therefore expose the system to keylogging attacks.

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

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.

A:Connection drops when connecting to remote server

Have you talked to Amazon S3 group, or looked in the discussion forum at to see if others may also be having the same problem, or had it and found a solution.

Instead of using PuTTY, try WinSCP. It incorporates Putty, a SSH & FTP Client all in one. You can download it from WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows The only thing that I can think of, is that the S3 server is dropping your connection on their end. WinSCP also allows for logging, so that you are able to better troubleshoot what is going on. More on the logging feature. Logging :: WinSCP

I work in a small company with around 40 employess and most of them access our server through remote desktop connection. Most of them have limited capabilities and some were assigned admin rights.
Few days ago someone tried to mess with some confidential folders and we couldnt even open them logged in as administrator. Is a 2003 windows server. My question is if theres a way to track the activity and find out who might have done the changes? The IT guy said there is no way to track it, but since it must have been through one of those remote sessions I think probably theres a way?

Thank you

A:Trying to configure a Print Server that is in a remote location

I didn't think this would be possible, but I'm not going to argue with that detection program.

A shot in the dark: make sure the laptop does not have a firewall or security suite that is blocking or not trusting 192.168.0.x addresses.

We have just acquired a Quad-core Xeon GB Desktop Remote 2003 - Windows R2 Server RAM dedicated server running Windows Server R SP bit We are using Windows Server 2003 R2 - Remote Desktop the server to run game and VoIP servers mainly in consoles This requires that a user be logged in to launch the servers We access the server via remote desktop I have set the server to automatically login on boot using the registry method so that if the server crashes when I am not around the server can restart itself and re-run all the software using the Windows Server 2003 R2 - Remote Desktop start menu quot Startup quot folder The problem is that when I login via Remote Desktop the OS creates a NEW SESSION under the same username rather than just connect to the existing session Yesterday we had three sessions running on the server all using the same username and so each of them was running duplicate apps This was because the automatic login method created a session and both myself and another admin logged into the server via remote desktop creating three sessions in parallel How do we force the server to accept only one session per username Thanks nbsp

Does anyone have any experience with a temperature monitoring unit we can install in our server room that we can use to moniter the room temperature? We had a near catastrophe recently when the air conditioning unit failed to restart following a power outage. I've looked a couple, but if anyone has a suggestion, I'd be grateful

I'm looking to set up a connection between a network in one physical location to a server in another physical location using our existing cable connection.
I will have a router and switch at both locations.
The cable provider is comcast and only offers dynamic IP addressing.
If anyone could offer some general directions or suggestions on how to implement that I would be great.

A:VPN tunnel for live connection to remote server?

Just set up VPN.. There are dozens of products and guides available.

Depending on what exactly you want to achieve, you could even get away with no VPN at all.

Use a service like DynDNS to get around the dynamic IP problem.

Hi This is my first posting and I else/remote controlled Laptop is being server someone Personal by etc. apologize if I am doing this incorrectly or in the wrong place I have a major issue and have now for about a year Last August maybe sooner my boyfriend installed something called Keylogger Spy on my laptop I purchased Personal Laptop is being controlled by someone else/remote server etc. my laptop Personal Laptop is being controlled by someone else/remote server etc. brand new from HP in June It is a personal laptop for home Personal Laptop is being controlled by someone else/remote server etc. use only Since then so much has happened I could not even begin to explain it all I know that I have been able to click on things like inspect and see people typing from something called chromium in one instance I was typing in a quickbooks application and a comment was typed asking if they were sure it was a good idea to share this with the entire web I also do not appear to be the administrator of my computer and have a domain account somehow registered to it also my hard drive now seems to be crashing and it happened after I uninstalled one of my external hard drives from my computer I have three external hard drives all of which became inaccessible after the keylogger installed So I believe my boyfriend also did something to stop me from accessing them I know whatever is happening is happening through my windows account and I believe some form of active directory It also accesses my telephone I believe as well Malware and virus scans show nothing and I am at my wits end I think that somehow it may also involve my internet router I've restored to factory settings several times but it keeps coming back How do I get my laptop back to being just mine with no domain controlling it and find out if it is indeed being remotely accessed or if data is being sent somewhere else

A:Personal Laptop is being controlled by someone else/remote server etc.

what I recommend is turning pc on press F11 repeatedly go into troubleshoot hp recovery manager perform a system recovery without backing anything up (to help eliminate the keylogger and other installed programs by him) once done the pc will be as if it is brand new
this is the simplest way to reclaim your PC for yourself and by far the easiest, there are other alternatives that im sure other people may offer you but if your willing to start from scratch this is your best option

A:Remote access to file server via the internet

Make sure that NetBIOS is bound to your network card on the server/PC you are trying to connect to. Big security risk doing this though...anyone can access your files!! If you have a firewall open to the proper ports with letting static IP's in thru them then you should be fine.

Hi, i do have a Linksys ISR, windows 2003 enterprise edition and a Public IP address. I would like to setup an FTp site on the windows 2003 pc using my public IP. I successfully managed to do it over the LAN and both downloads and uploads are fine however when it comes to setting it up over the Internet i terribly misfire. I do not have any experience in setting up a public IP and i do not know how to configure it on the machine so that it's accessible over the internet.
any help will be more than appreciated.

A:Setting up a remote FTP server on windows 2003

I am not an expert on this subject, but have you opened up a specific port on the Linksys router for your remote FTP Client to get into the LAN and be forwarded to the FTP Server? My router requires this for an remote application to get into the network.
