why am i sending more packets than i'm receiving



  • 1. share permissions -- how to?
    I want to put a share out that allows a set of people to write new files out there but not allow anyone but the group owners to delete/modify. If not that, then allow a set of groups to upload files to but not delete, provide read only on new files. I know how to do it on unix, just not here. Basically, I need a sticky bit!
  • 2. logon problems
    I am running w2000 on my laptop. It was part of a network at my workplace. The network has been shut down. I am still being prompted by the computer to login when I am at home. I tried to set up a network at home between my two laptops. I re-booted and I was denied access after typing in my password. Is there anyway I can get around the log in screen to get to the desktop and delete the network set up by my workplace? Thank you
  • 3. Defender and Trend Micro
    I am going to install trend micro. It protects against viruses and spyware. Will this be compatible with defender? If not, how do I disable defender? Also, If I use spybot and adaware(on demand) should I first disable my real time spyware?

It's not annoying.  Anyone who is annoyed can just skip
it -- that's there problem as long as you are on topic (at
least somewhat.)

What were you doing?  Were you downloading or visiting
web sites only?  (Most of these might give you roughly
equal packet counts since you would acknowledge most
each packet sent to you.)

What did netstat (or better Fport from FoundStone.Com)

What are you running?  Tlist? (ResKit) of PSList from
SysInternals.com will help here.

1.why am i "receiving 0 packets"

hey i just completley installed xp pro  and a brand new 
linksys ethernet adapter.  everything was installed 
correctly and everything is working correctly according 
to windows.  the lights on the back of the nic light up 
and windows picks up the Lan.  However i can not use the 
internet.  status says i am sending out tons of packets 
but receiving 0.  however it shows up taht i am connected 
to the internet.  i know it is not my cable modem because 
when i plug the cable modem directly into my laptop it 
works.  the cable modem is plugged directly into the 
desktop and it is not working.  I am not using a router.  
the nic card is also working properly i was on the phone 
with linksys for like 2 hours,  we even pinged the nic 
from dos and it showed it was working correctly.  someone 
please help me.  thank you

2.Packets sent vs Packets received

Under my "Local Area Connection Status" there is the heading of "Activity" 
and under that heading is of course "Packets".  

Currently as I type the number of packets sent is 17,643,725,698,059.
The number of packets received is 70,472.  To me, the one whos picture 
appears next to the word novice in the dictionary, this looks way wrong.  Is 
it?  If so, how can I correct this problem?  Currently my Norton Internet 
Security is turned of as well as my Windows Firewall.  I thought one of these 
two might have something to do with my issue.

I welcome an answer from anyone.

4.My network properties say I am sending TRILLIONS of packets

When I go into the properties of the network icon, I get 
an indication that hundreds of millios of packets are 
being sent by my pc through my network!  Over time this 
number reaches a trillion.  Although the number resets 
when I long off, it quickly jumps to 100,000,000 when I 
log back in.  Any thoughts?

(I have a simple home network connected to a cable 
modem/router through a switch.  )

Thanks for any advice!
