Preferred Solution: Windows Xp VPN server setup hanging

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 want to setup a secure VPN server on my windows xp box using the built in xp vpn server. When I go through the process of setting up the server, the only security feature I have control over seems to be which users can have access. There are no options for authentication, what type of encryption, ip filters, etc. The windows XP client seems to be where all of the security options can be set, which doesn't really make sense. I would think the server would have control over security... but my understanding is perhaps limited.

Can the VPN server security be tweaked by setting up IP Security Policies? Can anyone point me to a "how to" tutorial or offer me some guidance?

ok guys I have a server just one question, how do I get it online? It has 4GB RAM 160GB Hard Drive and running windows server 2003 also this will be used to host images for our company I just have no idea how to get it online so I can access it from any internet connection. Can I access by just typing in the ip or do I need to register an domain name first and where do I go from there?

A:windows Server Setup

Make sure you have a static IP from your ISP. Next, register your domain at the hosting company of your choosing. Then, statically assign your IP addresses for the server on your private LAN. If you are using Windows Remote Desktop, make sure it is enabled in Control Panel --> System --> Remote and that you forward port 3389 for TCP and UDP on your router, pointing towards your server's IP address.
Once that is done, you have a few choices as to how you access the server via HTTP over the internet. You could use Windows included IIS (Internet Information Services) to configure and setup a website, or you could use Apache ( Read their tutorials on how to get started because past this point, my knowledge is limited. Nothing a few good Google searches could fix, however

Hey Guys I have a small business network with clients This was my first time 2003 windows VPN on a server Setup setting up a network using Windows Server I have setup active directory My server is connected to a router which is then connected to a DSL modem I had to bridge the modem to share internet with the other computers I m using dynamic IP Setup VPN on a windows 2003 server address Now I would like to set up a vpn connection so that I can access the server from home I googled some stuff and all I found was that I have to run the Remote Routing wizard Now here is the problem When I enable remote routing on the server All the client machines cannot access the shared network drive Also still with that setting I was not able to connect remotely to the server Can anyone guide me in the right direction I m going crazy trying to figure this out Right now I m using one NIC the server does have another NIC if you guys need to know Please help Thanks nbsp

A:Setup VPN on a windows 2003 server

From everything I have been reading, you either have to use your firewall to authenticate and then pass you on to the network, or you need to add another NIC to your server and connect it directly to the internet other wise there is no way for the outside people to get to it.

Hi all,
first off, let me say hello to all and hopefully this forum will to be more popular one..

I have an AMD Athlon
Its got a SOYO SY-K7V Dragon motherboard that i'm unable to flash for some strange reason.
Maxtor 30 Gb

When i try to install XP , it simply hangs at the blue screen of windows setup and says, "setup is starting windows"

I tried the jumper settings

I tried inserting the hd into a diff IDE slot on the motherboard

I tried using different IDE cable assignments..

new bios flash ?

what can do next ?

I got into all this trouble cuz i wanted to go to XP and at the same time install a 5 port USB 2.0 pci card into the pc..

thanks for any suggestions

A:XP "setup is starting windows" hanging

I would remove all cards not needed to load windows. Some cars have been known to hang up the Windows install.

After you get Windows installed, you can add these cards back and load drivers.

Let us know if this works.

A:{Advice Offered} - Windows NT Server Setup


It sounds like the drive you have is formatted with FAT32.

Here's what you can do:
1) Get a boot disk, ( I have one available from ), and use it to delete the partition, and recreate it as either FAT16 or NTFS (most bootdisks have FDISK and FORMAT, which will only give you the choice of FAT16. My disk has Partition magic, which will give you both options).

2) Recreate the partition as FAT16 or NTFS

3) Try re-installing NT.
Also, make sure that the active partition (the partition that is bootable), is NOT more then 8 gigs away from the start of the drive, and that the size of your system partition does not exceed 8 gigs (this is a flaw in the installation program for NT4, which has been corrected with Win2K).

Check the CD make sure it is cleaned off of any smudges, fingerprints. Look for scratches.
Press F12 at bootup and run the Dell Diagnostics. You can also download the ISO image for either Seatools, or Drive Fitness in my signature and burn the Image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature. Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and the Advanced tests on the HDD. If all these tests pass, then Download the DOS Boot ISO image for [email protected] and burn the image with their image burner or IMGBurn and boot off of that CD and do a low level Format on the HDD (this will take a very long time, so please be patient) when it is done, boot off of the XP CD again and try the reinstall again.

Hi Guys,

I'm new on the board and I've joined becase I could do with a hand.
Basically our work's tech guy has left to join the army (long story) and before he left he setup out 2000 Windows AS for me which was cool.

We are now opening another office and I need to replicate the same setup again. I'm ok when it comes to the hardware side of it... switches, routers etc.... But my problem is when I have to configure the Server setup.

Can you recommend any good sources on the internet that can talk me through it step by step... like I'm a 2 yeard old. But preferably not step by step and theres about 2351 steps in all.

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to set up network using windows 2003 server.I don't have enough knowledge of networking except that I have a few computers at home that are on a network.So I'm trying to do the same thing for a friend's little business.The problem is that he bought a server with Windows 2003 server that I have never used before.I have been able to put all the computers on the network.I can access the server from any computer by logging in as Administrator. I believe that I need to make users on the server so that users can connect to the Server using their own password but I don't know how to do that .

Can someone please tell how to do that.Or give me a link for a basic tutorial for windows 2003 server that explains how to create user accounts on the network.

Please help!!

Why are you repairing the server? I ask because it's quite probable that this is a virus. The LSASS process manages user logins, and is often targeted for infections on PC's and servers running Windows.

Which ever User name you used when you set up your Windows 8 is the one you would use for the credentials on the Home server.

For instance if you used the name JSmith-PC then the User name to use is JSmith.

My elderly (2003) Mesh XP PC was accidentally shut down too soon yesterday.

Now it stops booting at a BSOD and when I try F8 options they all result in a reboot loop except the one that disables automatic reboot. This means I can't get into Safe Mode at all.

Going for Recovery Console, I have tried booting from both the supplier's XP recovery disk and a RC disk I've downloaded and burned myself, but in both cases setup hangs at 'Setup is starting Windows'.

So - I am stuffed but not exactly mounted... because I am unmountable (allegedly).

I have just installed a W2k server and would like to make it a BDC on our NT 4.0 domain.

Is this possible? I do not want to upgrade our NT domain to W2K as this server will be located at a remote site with a slow WAN link and I do not want the heavy trafic that comes with Active Directory Replication.

Many thanks for your help


A:Setup a W2K server as a BDC


You cannot have a win2k domain controller on an NT4 domain. If you want to upgrade to win2k, install a BDC as NT4 then promote it to win2k. Take the old NT4 DC offline and upgrade the new DC to win2k. If all goes well, rebuild the old DC to win2k as a DC in the new win2k domain.

My company is currently updating our property management system and required that we set up 2 new win 2003servers, one for the application/database, and one terminal server for our sister hotel, so that they may access the other server. We currently have win 2003Small Business Server running our file,dhcp,dns, ect.
I just need to confirm the proper way to set this up. So far.. the application server has NIC1 going to the switch that is tied in with the SBS, and NIC 2 going to the terminal server NIC 2. The terminal server NIC 1 would then be connected directly to our firewall/router, correct?
Here is where I get stuck. Which IP addresses do I need for the terminal server, and do I need other servers running on the terminal server to get access to the application server?
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Server setup

The system won't work the way you suggest campusspecialist...

Are you running ISA on the SBS server? And what kind of router/firewall do you have in place?

If you're not running ISA, then i'd personally disable the second network card on the SBS and
link your server directly to the router. Same with the terminal server, direct connection to the
router, you definitely don't need the second nic on the terminal server.

Hi all,

My company are currently considering setting up 2 servers in the office. One acting as an apps/mail server & one being a web/ftp server.

What I'm wondering is the best way to set this up?

As far as I'm aware I can either run both servers through one router & assign both servers a static IP then use port forwarding to block port 80 on the apps server and open port 80 on the web server.

I believe another option is to have a dedicated ADSL line for the web server, so that there is no chance of any unautorised access to the apps server.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I was able to do it once before but now I cannot get it to work. As a server I use Bulletproof FTP server & SmartFTP as the client for testing, but when ever I try and connect to my No-IP name I get:

"A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond."

I setup BPFTP to use passive mode IP so I entered my No-IP name which resolves to my WAN IP. Next I went into my router CP and added 1024 - 65535 in both Virtual Servers & Application Gateways but I still cannot connect.

I've also tried connectin in my browser and other FTP clients.

A:Setup FTP server

You shouldn't need to open all those ports for your server. If your Bulletproof FTP server is running on a special port, you should only need to open that one. (default for standard FTP is 21).

You can also try using a second PC to connect to your FTP server from inside your subnet. This way you know your FTP is setup and accepting connections and you can be sure your router is at fault.

I am using broadband with a dynamic ip address. I am using a linksys router BEFSR41 to share my internet connection with another pc using DHCP. My system is a winxp, 1.6Hmz, 512DDR ram machine.

My question is:

1) how do i assign the ip address, wan address.... to give my pc a static address?

2) Is there any good and free ftp server program that is easy to configure? Pls link me to the site.

Hope someone can help mi on this. I am thinking of sharing my movies and software application. Thank you


A:setup ftp server

Go to NOIP and do some reading. This is a site that will assign an unchanging URL to your dynamic IP, which will allow you to have an FTP server. It has a client that regularly checks your connection and updates their DNS database with your current IP. There are other similar services, this is just the one I use.

I don't really have a recommendation for an free FTP server, but I'd be real careful what you expose to the net in any case. All you need is one security hole...

I am trying to setup an OpenVPN connection (from a Windows client) to a Windows Server.

I followed this tutorial, which is surprisingly the only start-to-finish tutorial that I've found.
I've replicated it step by step, but I am unable to get a connection ('connection to the client has failed').

I've generated the keys with easy-rsa for both Windows (which I have on the client) and Server (which I have on the server) and two config files - one on the client, one on server - which specify the server used port and server IP address, as well as pointing to the appropriate key files.

I have also consulted a friend, with a working OpenVPN solution and in his case, the keys files / certificates are located only on the server machine.

A:Help with GuildFTPd Server Setup on XP

You sound pretty computer literate so I'm assuming you know your ip address and just didn't want to post the whole thing here (which is understandable). The problem may be on the client software. Make sure it is connecting to the same port (if you use anything other than the standard FTP port - 21). Also do you have a dynamic or static IP? If your IP is dynamic you will need software to update your URL, but if it is static you shouldn't have to worry about it.

I'm not sure what the setup wizard wants when it asks for server names for my email. I currently use my free yahoo account and thought it would be cool to try a desktop mail program. Please help. Thanks

A:Mozilla Thunderbird Server Setup...???????

Yahoo doesn't have a POP server for free accounts.
To be able to send and receive mail you need at least a POP & an SMTP server. Usually your ISP will provide you with an email(s) address as part of your package, as well as access to usenet groups.

Hi, I'm a linux newbie and I want to ask how to setup an email server on SUSE linux 10?. In SUSE everything setup for configuration is under control by YAST that is easy but it's difficult for me .

For checking if the mail server is working I try telnet localhost 110 and 143 but can't running. where is the problem? can anybody help... btw I'm sorry for my bad english...

A:Setup an email server on SUSE Linux 10

Since SuSE 8.1 the distro includes Cyrus imap, and it looks like you have it working enough that it answers you on the proper port. There are specific setup examples in the /usr/share/doc/packages/cyrus-sasl/doc and /usr/share/doc/packages/postfix directories. These should be able to get you well on your way. I'm sure we can help if you have specific issues later.

basically a friend of mine works for a small business in town. they need a server to store tons of research and databases on it so it can be accessed from the network. they also want to be able to access these files while they are at home via internet. now the computer is easy part, some sort of dual core machine with mirrored raid drives and fast internet connection with decent network.

is gigabyte network worth it?

and for accessing the files away from the office, would you recommend setting up vpn for everyone to access? if so, which vpn service and how? if not, should i go with some sort of ftp server setup? any suggestions would be appreciated. its been awhile since i have done this. thanks.

I'm setting up NT on a 10GB HD. The NT setup keeps telling me that my disk is too large when I try to format the whole thing with NTFS. It will only allow up to 4GB with NTFS. Any suggestions as to how I can format the entire 10GB with NTFS?

Currently, I have my two computers networked at home behing a gateway router.

I am playing on making one of the two a server. Here are the questions:

1. Will I have to remove the router from the setup since I will be using one as a server.

2. Should I get a static IP address?

3. Should I get a faster connection other than my current ADSL?

4. What would be the hook up configuration so that my other computer would still be able to access the internet.

Thanks in advance.

A:Best practice for network setup on new Server 2008 R2

The dual NIC setup with 2 networks is generally set up if you are running an ISA server as well to port forward and manage internet traffic. If you already have a firewall just set it up with one port for LAN traffic. You can also use a second port as a fail over NIC or you can team them to combine the bandwidth with the NIC management software.
