  • 1. Sharing Files from XP to 98
    I have set up a wireless network with XP to 98. The network is up and working fine as far as getting to the internet. My problem is when I try to connect to the share that I have shared out It will not connect. I am able to ping both computers with the ip address, but not by the computer name themselves. Acts like the DNS is not working properly and is not doing name to ip resolution. When I look in My network places I can see both computers in the window but when I click on the other computer I get a message the says "\\ computer not accessable. you might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the admin Can someone help on this thanks .
  • 2. Windows XP User's LAN ID locked out in AD
    Some of our users are using Windows XP Professional, and the AD is built up with Windows 2000 Server. The following domain security policy: Password will expire in 36 days, can not be same with previous 6 passwords. The donmain account of the XP user will locked out automaticly when their password expired, and can not log on to the domain any more even the system administor has unlocked the user's ID. To let the user able to log on again, the system administrator must remove the user profile for this user, and then let them log on again to create a new profile in the user's PC. Kindly comment how to resolve this, thank you.

  • 4. Windows ME LAN printer hard to access from XP Pro
    My PC has XP Pro. I have recently connected to a LAN in a new office, which has several workgroups for different compaines and divisions etc.. The printer I want to use is in the same small workgroup as me, within a larger LAN; it is attached to a PC using Windows ME. I can usually see the other PC in my network neighbourhood. Briefly I could see and use its printer a few days ago, but now I cannot access it or see it if I use the Browse option in the Add-a-printer function. Any ideas on how to use that printer? The local LAN support guys suggests moving the other PCs from ME to XP Pro. This may not please their owner, and it may be cheaper to buy an extra printer! I have previously connected to other printers on other LANs with no problem, but not using ME I think. I seem to remember having some problem accessing shared folders on an ME machine a year or so back too. Roger
  • 5. DSL & XP
    I recently purchased a new Compaq Presario with Win XP ,Model S4300nx. I am using a PC Switcher that connects my old Compaq,Presario 4862 and new Compaq. . Both computer are hooked to a DSL SpeedStream High Speed Modem. My problem is when the new computer has been on-line but idle for quite some time, I am not able to connect to Internet Explorer. I get the error message,"This page cannot be displayed". If Outlook Express is open, it will send and receive. If it not open, I cannot open Outlook Express. When I reboot the computer, it will work properly. I can swith over to the old computer and access both Internet Explorer and Outlook Express without rebooting. I don't know if there is a setting I am missing on the new computer. I am assuming that since the old computer will access the Internet and e-mail, the problem is not with my ISP. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Gail

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

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
