Networking issues



  • 1. Recently downloaded IE 7, outlook 2003 opens, auto shuts itself do
    IE 7 downloaded well, since then, everytime I open outlook 2003, it opens then automatically 'synch folders' whether on or offline, and not with any pda etc attached. Explorer not open but think its probably dialoguing with IE? it gets to 25% synching and then shuts itself down. Cannot get to tools bar etc on outlook, it won't allow anything else to happen while it synchs, after 1 min, it doesn't 'go anywhere' and tries to send an error mess to microsoft, i get to select yes or no, then it shuts down. Can't get it to stay open. Thanks. got one message once - MSI.EXEC did not respond? or something like that. Ps I have XP and laptop fairly new. -- Estelle
  • 2. BCM suddenly disappeared!!
    Hi, wonder if you can help. I run BCM on Windows XP, Office 2003 in 3 user profiles on my PC. It is working fine on 2 profiles but when I log onto my other profile, it sems to have gone. It does not exist in any of the toolbars - I have "Tools" but not "Business Contact Manager Tools" so In can't even run "Help". The "Help" that is there is solely for Microsoft Office. The biggest problem is that each and every email, past and present, is being associated with every contact. I tried re-installing BCM from the CD which it appeared to do without any problems, but there are no changes - still can't find it. Any ideas??? Thank you
  • 3. Repost: Linking email
    when I click the auto-link email button within the account, or the contact, even if there is a checkbox - when I click OK it still doesn't show the emails that are linked to this client. I end up having to go to Business Tools | Manage Email AutoLink, select ALL names listed and then wait for it to go through each and every email I have (taking up to an hour each run). Only after this will linked email show the messages for that one account. Is this really the only way? What can I do to make the Email Auto-Link work w/in the business contact? and why does it work on some, and then not others?
  • 4. 2003 trial
    I downloaded a free trial version of Office 2003. When I go to open up my Outlook I see that it has been updated also. How do I access my prior Outlook e-mail account?

Networking issues

Postby Um9iZXJ0IExpbmRibGFk » Sat, 22 Sep 2007 17:12:05 GMT

We are a small company with two computers connected to a router, configured 
as a small "workgroup network" where thay can access allowed files on each 
others computers and such.

We recently installed BCM and want to use it to handle our business info, 
but I can't get the "Share database" function to work. We have computer one 
(C1) where "the boss" works and it is the computer where the database will 
be. There are two assistants sharing computer two (C2), taking turns you 
could say. Each one has separate accounts and no one uses passwords (although 
I've tried giving everyone passwords and such, just to get it working).

On C1 I set up the database and start sharing it. The list only shows local 
accounts so I add the account name for the two assistants on C2. Then on C2 I 
start setting up the database according to instructions, enter the name of C1 
and press "connect" (or whatever the english version says). It then asks me 
to verify password - I give it the temporary one plus the local one of the 
assistant currently logged in (blank when the assistant hasn't had a 
password, but also tried giving one out and entering that one). I just get 
the message that C1 "can't change the password" and I get nowhere! I've tried 
to work around it in all ways imaginable to me, but no progress whatsoever. 
Very frustrating!

Any suggestions?

The C1 machine must at least have Windows Pro; Home won't work.

Logins must have passwords for BCM to allow them to be shared users.

Add User1 and User2 as Windows users to the boss machine. They must
have the same logins and passwords on both machines.

Run the sharing wizard in BCM on the C1 machine. Select User1 and
User2 as shared users to the database.

On C2, login as User1, run BCM and attempt to connect to the shared
database on C2. Since User1 already has the same password on both
machines, you'll avoid the changing passwords fandango.

1.Network issues with one of the 2 NICs we have installed

We are using Dual nics in our Exchange server, and lately one of the cards gives an error when people are attmepting to open their outlook.  "Can not connect to the Exchange server etc...."  They can click "Retry" "Work Offline" or "Cancel"  They can select Retry and it seems to work for a while.  This happens several times a day using this NIC and IP address.  We have replaced the Mother board and still have the problem.  Is there a setting that we need or are missing?  WHen we point to the other NIC it is fine

2.Outlook networking issues

our office computers are networed - we need to make one 
of the computers the main informtion center - overwriting 
all others - can we do that with Outlook 2002. Currently 
when we share information everything is duplicated in 
everyones computer. What a mess.

3.Outlook cause network issues

Odd problem.  Our company has near 100TB of data.  Several
can have 100,000's of files.  When clicking through our network with
an XPsp2 machine when don't really see any slowness until we get to
one the folders with thousands of files....the issues is with
scrolling down through those large directories.  It pauses/hangs for
second or so, and then will scroll down a bit, and then pause/hang
again.  Eventually, it will cache the directory and will scroll fine
without problem, but this is after a few minutes.  Also, this is with
the details view in Windows Explorer.
We run both XP and 2000, and the 2000 machines with the exact same
software run without the slow scrolling.  I figured it could be
something in our standard install image, so I did a clean install of
XP and didn't have the slow scrolling issue.  I then started
installing our standard software one app at a time.  Worked fine
Outlook 2003 got installed.  I just installed it, no user got setup.
If I uninstalled it, the scrolling issue went away immediately.  Any
ideas as why
would Outlook cause that?
