  • 1. ARP Cache Flush Error
    I have a Windows XP Home machine and the network connection keeps transmitting and receiving packets, very small numbers of them. I have scanned the machine for both virus and spyware and have come up clean. I tried to "Repair" the connection but get the error The following steps of the repair operation failed: Flushing the ARP cache. Please contact your network administrator or ISP. Now this is a problem since I am the network administrator and am connected through a DSL connection to SBC. Is there any way to correct this error or do I need to? My connection seems like it is "polling" but I can't tell what or why. I have manually performed the repair process as described in Knowledgebase 289856 As always any help is appreciated.

  • 3. How can I share my printer XP
    For some reason (I suspect one of those automatic updates) the PCs on my Lan can't share the printer anymore. They used to quite succesfully, however now when they attempt to access the main computer that has the printer installed, they are prompted for a password. Using the only passwords that I have ever used on the Printers PC I still cannot access the PC. All PCs belong to the same WORKGROUP and have related IP Addresses. The Printers PC can see and access all other PCs and the other can see and access each other. Firewall has been disabled (Firewall has been activated in the adsl to the internet). The Printer PC runs XP Pro the others run XP Home and Win98 Second edtion. Any help here would be most appreceiated.

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...

and...

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
