  • 4. UDP_Probe_Other
    We have a 2003AD environment with mixed W2K and WXP Pro machines. All laptops run BlackICE firewall (in addition to our firewall device). My BlackICE is showing hundreds of hits from another user today with event "UDP_Probe_Other". The "intruder" is the user's AD name "". I looked at the machine in question - got rid of negligible spyware (mainly cookies), ran clean antivirus, didn't see any questional services or processes, disabled AEGIS protocol and IEEE. The LAN firewall shows nothing unusual. Nothing looks out of the ordinary yet for some reason her machine is bombarding me, and maybe others, with this "UDP_Probe_Other" traffic. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Offline Files - Computer keeps going offline

Postby Will » Sat, 20 Sep 2003 04:22:36 GMT

My computer keeps going into offline state even though I 
am still connected to the local area network.  If I 
syncronize it will reconnect fine.  Any ideas how to keep 
it online?

1.Keep offline files from going offline with slow connection

I am having a hard time keeping systems from going off line when
connected via VPN or even a 10 meg (or better even) wireless. We need
off line files enabled, but ONLY when they are really off line. I
tried setting the GPO for the "Configure slow link speed" to 1 so that
even if it is a 1k connection it will still stay on line, but they
still go off line when on VPN or wireless. Again, it's not even slow
connections that it is doing this with, so I'm a bit lost...

Any idea what I can do about this?

2.Offline folders keep going offline


On my SBS network, I make use of Offline Folders within XP, mapped to
shares on my SBS server (home areas etc).

Its a simple LAN (one subnet, approx 60 PCs).

CPU of the server is averaged at 10-20%.

However for some reason, my PC and several others keep loosing
connections to the shares, and put themselves in offline mode.

I've checked the event logs of clients/servers, and don't see anything

Any tips on debugging why this keeps happening?


3.offline files go offline after a while

My offline files just seem to go 'off line' all the time. When they go 
offline, the offline folders (which are mapped as drives) only show the 
files that are available offline, and don't try to reconnect.

Possibly my offline files are going offline because of Idle Session Timeout.

On the Server (SBS 2003), at the command line, NET CONFIG SERVER shows

Idle session time (min)    15

This would suggest that if I don't use the network shares for 15 minutes, 
they are automatically disconnected.
And that browsing an offline folder does not cause a reconnect.

Is this likely to be the problem? Should I change this setting?

If I futz around with a UNC path to a different folder, I can reconnect, and 
the offline folders reconnect.

This is dysfunctional. I would like to have some offline files in some 
offline file folders, but when I am connected I would like to see all of the 
files in the server folder.

I don't see other people asking about this problem.  Am I the only person in 
the world who has not shared "all files and folders" in the offline folder? 
If not,

any suggestions what should I do to fix this?


4.Offline files - Working offline, what is going on?

I have a couple laptops that are giving me fits.

Windows XP Pro SP3 and up to day.
This was happening long before I installed SP3
File server is 2003 Server.

They keep going "Off line".

There's a little pop-up balloon that pops up and says:
"Offline files - Working offline
You are no longer connected to 'MyServerName'. You can continue working 
Click this icon to view status."

I've made this setting change:
Windows Explorer\Tools\Folder Options, Offline Files tab, Advanced button.
Set to "Never allow my computer to go offline.

I found this information is NewGroup past, but don't know if it's relevent:
This is 100% the SMB signing bug inhtroduced with XP SP1.  The workaround 
was contained in KB article #331519,
but Microsoft just recently yanked the article with no word, and has 
provided no substitute fix. Call MS, quote the article, and get it fixed. 
It has to do with turning off all digital signing on your 2k domain 

At one point I thought it was because they had their wireless NIC on at the 
same time their LAN NIC was on, but that doesn't seem to be it.

I also thought it might be Symantech's antivirus, but we tried disabling 
that and the laptop still goes in to offline mode.

Anyone have an idea what I should be looking for to resolve this???
