  • 1. OT - Broadband bandwidth caps
    I apologize for this OT query. Does anybody know what, if any, is the bandwidth cap (monthly) for AT&T RoadRunner in Southern California. Some members in my family watch Hulu as well as full episodes on ABC and Discovery channel websites of shows we missed. We were advised by a family friend that we need to go easy as ISPs have hidden bandwidth caps beyond which they can cut off or throttle service. Regards and TIA for any illumination. Alpha -------
  • 2. access shared folder without mapping
    Sometimes when I access a shared folder (with the local and remote computers all running Windows XP Professional) by simply typing \ \computer_name\share_name in the address bar, I get a login prompt and everything works fine. However, sometimes, I get an error message "\ \computer_name\share_name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied." When I just type \\computer_name in the address bar I can see the shared folders, but clicking on them gives the same error message. However, when I go to Tools->Map Network Drive, and connect that way, it works fine. Can anybody tell me what dictates whether or not you can access a shared folder without mapping it?
  • 3. Nobody can answer! - Network connection profile question
    Hello I've searched through the whole internet (not a joke) and i can't find help :( Can somebody advice me what the "network connection wizard" actually does in specific details? - What files it modifies - What registry settings are created I'm creating an installer that should automatically create a dial-up connection profile for Windows XP. I can make it modify registry, create files etc. - but first i need to know which ones to modify. I don't need help for programming, just to know what the network wizard actually does in specifc details. The goal is that when user runs the setup.exe it automatically creates the profile. Can anybody help me?
  • 4. Computer not appearing on
    I have two computers (both XP Pro) as a small network. named PC1 and PC2. I have shared a folder named ShareFolder inside PC1's My Documents. ShareFolder's permissions are currently set to Everyone which lets me see this folder on PC2's My Network Places. But I want a specific permission set so that only PC2 can access this folder, and not another PC which may be hooked to the network off and on. When I go into Permissions for ShareFolder and click Add, all I see is the current PC1 and not PC2. I clicked Locations, but even there only PC1 is appearing. How can I make the permissions so that only PC2 can access ShareFolders. Thank you very much for your help.
  • 5. public/private IPs and subnet masks
    Say you have a computer on IP 132.132.132.6 with subnet mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 132.132.132.254 You want to setup your new network printer with a private IP. The printer gets a private IP of 10.78.22.130. What do you put into the printer for a subnet mask? Do you put 255.255.255.0? What would you put for the gateway on the printer since it is a private IP but you want it to communicate with your public IP computer?

ping loopback with tcp/ip disabled

Pinging the loopback address tests confirms that TCP/IP is running, correct?

Is there any reason that I can still ping the loopback address even though I 
have disabled TCP/IP? Or is my understanding of what pinging the loopback 
address does wrong?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



The loopback address is internal to the TCP/IP stack and can be used
even with no installed network adapters.

How did you disable TCP/IP?

I disabled TCP/IP through the properties of the connection under the 
networking tab. A lab in the Microsoft 272 book instructed me to disable 
TCP/IP by unchecking the box there, which should keep pinging the loopback 
from working. It did not, and my instructor did not have an answer as to why.

Does unckecking the box not actually disable TCP/IP for the connection?

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Unchecking the box disables TCP/IP on that network connection, and
only on that network connection.  It has no effect on other network
connections, and it has no effect on the loopback address.

The loopback address isn't associated with any network connection.
It's internal to the TCP/IP stack, and TCP/IP runs even when TCP/IP
isn't bound to any network connections.   To demonstrate that, you can
un-install all network adapters, open a command prompt window, and use
the "route print" command to show the TCP/IP route table.  It will
show:
  
   127.0.0.1  255.0.0.0  127.0.0.1  127.0.0.1  1

1.TCP/IP computer can ping world, world can't ping computer

Hi

I'm having a really strange situation going on with one of my Win2000
computers.

As the subject line states, it can ping and access the world (within
and outside of the LAN), however, no other computer can ping it (ie.
ping 192.168.2.3).

This machine is able to browse the web and ping everywhere, but no
other computer can ping it, which means that my XPPro laptop, which
doesn't have the netbui protocol installed, can't access the shares on
the w2k computer.

This machine is connected to a belkin 4 port router (which acts as the
DHCP server). If I set the machine to use a static IP address, it
can't browse the web at all.

I ran winsockfix.exe on it, which kinda resolved the internet access
problem (as long as the computer uses a dynamic IP address).

Also, I have no firewall running.

I already tried replacing the network card (as instructed in other,
similar, threads).

Next stop seems to be a full reinstall of windows 2000 unless someone
comes up with another clever idea.

Thanks in advance!!!!!

Alex

2.Failed TCP/IP Internet Loopback Test Error Code NC315-5W

Hi,

I ran PC Doctor to test the connection on my network adapter (Realtek 
RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC) 

The test failed on the following:

Failed TCP/IP Internal Loopback Test Error Code NC315-5W

Failed Network Communication Test Error Code NC315-1W

If anyone could advise on this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

4.std tcp/ip verses hp std tcp/ip printer port

What is the difference between...
[standard tcp/ip]...
and...
[hp standard tcp/ip]...
when setting up a local printer port?
Any insight will be appreciated.
Thanks, Tracey


5.Microsoft TCP/IP V6 and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in network settings

Just noticed that I have both Microsoft TCP/IP V6 and Internet Protocol 
(TCP/IP) showing in network settings.

Is this (a) normal, and (b) likely to cause a conflict ? (XP Pro machines)

Should I remove one or the other?

Jeff
