  • 1. HOSTS file problems
    Hi all, Got a problem with the HOSTS file on this machine. All web browser and PING requests just seem to be completely ignoring it. I can confirm: - the file is called HOSTS (without an extension located in %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc) - The registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters) points to this directory - I have tried reseting the TCP/IP stack (with netsh int ip reset <logpath>) - Done a full malware scan - Used winsock fix All of which are to no avail and I am now completely stumped. Can anyone please help? Many Thanks Warren
  • 2. how configure Linksys ADSL router firewall
    I have a Linksys 4 port ADSL modem. How do I set up the firewall so that all computers on my network can access certain TCP ports? I can't find any way to configure more than 1 local IP address at a time for each port I need. If I try to put a wildcard (*) into the IP fields it just complains that it wants a number from 0 to 99. There is a game I am running which uses single tcp ports 13139, 27900, 28900 and 29900 and UDP + TCP port range 60876 to 60976. I configured single port forwarding and port range forwarding for this, but is only allows me to put in 1 IP address for the packets to be sent too, so only that computer on the network will work with the game, and if I want to use the game on another network machine I have to change all the numbers on the firewall to point to that computer's IP address. Is there an easy way to let every computer on the network open the necessary ports? What does "Port Triggering" do? Does that do what I am wanting? Is using the single port and port range forwarding the wrong way to do this?
  • 3. DNS bug
    Hi I have an interesting problem with one of my office machines. I am not sure how, but I have set up static ip's for all my machines, and I use the server itself as one of my dns entries. On this particular machine, the dsn ip's keep going back to an earlier address, and each time I correct it (as admin) and put the server dns and save, after a day or so, sometimes a week, it reverts back to the old dns numbers. Is there a reason why this is happening on this particular machine? I know that at one time, a virus was found and erradicated, but doubtful that it would cause the dns change on that machine. Anyone with ideas is most welcome. Right now all I can do is reset the correct dns ip (server ip) each time I find out that it has reverted to the old settings. Thanks in advance. Chris
  • 4. "Choose a network connection" message pops up when connected
    I recently installed a wireless network between my 2 computers. Everything works fine and this computer (Windows XP Home sp2) connects to the internet when I log on. However, every time I go to a different web page I get a dialog box asking me to Choose a Network Connection with the dropdown menu showing my different connections (Broadband, dialup, Verizon, etc.). I am already connected, how do I stop this dialog box from popping up?

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...

Any insight will be appreciated.

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
