• 1. xp pro and home compatibility?
    Hello, We run a 9 system pier to pier network. Last week we brought in a new 4 in 1 Cannon printer. After instillation of the unit problems began arising. Users receive this message when trying to print or access the shared network drive, "No more connections can be made to this remote computer at this time because there are already as many connections as the computer can handle." This was not a problem and didn't happen until we set up the Cannon. The network has 6 xp-pro and 3 xp-home operating systems. Network compatibility problem? We are looking to finally get a dedicated server. Any suggestions would really be appreciated. TIA
  • 2. VPN Setup
    I had the VPN server setup to work on one network adapter and it was working fine for a few days, and then it quit working. I spent a lot of time reconfiguring it to see if it would work again, but no luck. I put another NIC card in the server so I'd have two. Well, the primary NIC card has the private address of 192.168.x.x and I'm trying to make the new NIC card have a public address, such as 216.88.x.x When I click OK in TCP/IP properties to apply this, I get a warning message about how multiple default gateways are intended to provide redundancy to a single network, not for two separate disjoint networks. How can I make my second adapter have a public IP address without getting this message? Or is there a better way to make this work for the VPN server? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  • 3. 2003 SBS R2 Migration Networking Concerns....
    I'm currently trying to gather as much information as possible in regards to migrating from our current sluggish server (2003 SBS) to a newer, faster one (2003 SBS R2). I have very limited experience with Active Directory and 03 Server in general. The new server has hot- swappable SAS drives (3 x 36G), and I'm planning on running RAID5. My network has 11 wired clients and 2 wireless ones. I'm concerned with the setup in regards to trying to setup the new server as the DNS host while the old server is still on the network. Is there anything I should be concerned about with regards to transferring DNS right from the old machine to the new one? 1) The old server wasn't setup by me (very haphazardly) and I'd like to simply start over with regards to domain structures and AD. Is there any way to effectively 'delete' the current domain and begin again with the new machine? Is it worth it? I mean, everything works as is. 2) With regards to RAID5, does this conversion need to be done before I begin moving files and folders to the new server? I'm worried that I'll install the OS on the wrong drive--or i'll have to reinstall the OS after the RAID is operational. 3) Basic Infrastructure: Internet--->Netgear PIX/Access Point --- >Netgear 24 port Gigabit switch-->Server. Am I going to need to change any of the configurations of these devices? Any help or helpful links would be greatly appreciated!

  • 5. RDP to RRAS server
    WS2003 R2 SP2 RRAS server, branch office endpoint for a site-to-site VPN. I'd like to be able to use RDP to the external NIC (IOW **NOT** over the VPN connection) as a "fallback" to remotely troubleshoot this server in case the VPN connection fails...but I don't seem to be setting up the RRAS "Basic Firewall" and packet filters correctly because I get this message: --------------------------- Remote Desktop Disconnected --------------------------- This computer can connect to the remote computer. Remote Desktop cannot find the remote computer. Type the computer name or IP address again, and then try connecting. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator. --------------------------- OK Help --------------------------- On the RRAS server, RDP-related packet filters are set as follows-- Inbound, drop all except: Source IP: Any Source Port: Any Destination IP/Mask: <external IP>/ Destination port: TCP/3389 Outbound, drop all except: Source IP/Mask: <external IP>/ Source Port: TCP/3389 Destination IP: Any Destination port: Any Basic Firewall Only, Services & Ports: Remote Desktop enabled Private Address (& have also tried internal IP.)

OK...I've seen multiple postings to this newsgroup with the same MrxSmb issues, but have not seen possible resolutions to this particular problem.  I am receiving event ID: 3034; Source: MrxSmb with last dword entry of  c000006d; Description: The redirector was unable to initialize security context or query context attributes. 

I am currently running Windows 2000 5.00.2195 SP4.  The errors are occurring in multiples of three at various times of the day and this is happening only on my secondary server.  Also, the multiple errors started occurring more frequently since I loaded SP4...but again, my primary server is also running SP4 and is not generating these errors.  I have exhausted my research for possible resolutions thru the MS website as well as other sites I have searched with articles relating to this issue and all I have found is that "MrxSmb errors indicate a serious problem"...very helpful, huh?  I sure could use some extra brain power out there if you can spare...ha ha!  Could this be a NIC issue? Or just software? 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello all.  

I had a problem recently.  My computer wouldn't boot. It 
came up to the blue screen o' death with a stop error 
saying that device driver couldn't be loaded mrxsmb.sys.  
After repairing the installation and running the recovery 
console to try to disable mrxsmb.sys to no avail, I simply 
renamed it and the computer booted.  Now I can't see nay 
of the computers on my LAN.  Anything sound familiar to 
anyone?  Is there somewhere I can get my file replaced?  I 
tried to replace the mrxsmb.sys file from another computer 
before I renamed it and it didn't work.  I am betting that 
it contains some computer specific or network specific 
info that cannot simply be taken from another 
installation.  Any ideas on how to fix this?

Anybody knows how this came about and offer a solution.



3.Problem with mrxsmb?

Hi @ all,

i have a problem with filecopy over ethernet. I have a few win2000 clients 
which are very slow when copying file from and to network shares by using the 
internet explorer. if i am right, windows uses the protocol smb (or cifs) 
when accessing network shares. And i think that there might be a problem: if 
i copy the same file from the same client by using the tftp-protocol, it 
proceeds about 20 time faster than by using smb / cifs. 

Any idea, how i can "test" the functionality of the above protocol?

Only same clients are affected by the problem, this is no generell issue.
