  • 1. VERY STRANGE!!! >> Windows and Linspire Linux network
    Hello, Strange things are going on... computers can browse linux shared files, through the local network ONLY when connected to the internet.. when the internet connection is closed.. it takes several minuites to see inside the shared folder of the linux machine! DETAILS: I have set up a linspire box (LINUX) in a network with 5 other computers that have windows xp and win98... This network has stiatic addresses, XP main machine 192.168.0.1 and the rest 192.168.0.x This XP machines is working as an internet connection share machine, sharing is internet connection to the others. On the Linux machine I have entered this info in the network configuration window of SAMBA IP static 192.168.0.10 mask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 192.168.0.1 and DNS servers 192.168.0.1 Now when I was trying to browse the files from the XP machines to the linux machine, it took ages. For some other reason someone opened the internet connection and then the folders could be browsed FAST! Is it the extra gateway 192.168.0.1 and dns server settings I gave Linspire the problem? I would test this on that network, but its not my network and I will have access to it in a few days.. I will have to know why this is happening! I want the linspire box to work on the lan only.. no need for it to browse the internet. Has anybody seen this before???? Thanks in advance!

    In windows xp can we make a bridge of more than 2 connections...
  • 4. Multiple IP addresses.
    Hi I was going through the various offers given by a Cable Internet Provider. It said that it would be providing 3 IP addresses. Can any one let me know what can be the use of having 3 IP addresses? Can I improve my performance/speed of my internet connection using these 3 IPs? Pointers to any kind of info related to the use of such IPs addresses would be appreciable. Regards, - Vinay.
  • 5. Simple Networking Issue
    I have 5 machines on the network, 2 of them as clients doubling as print servers. The last machine I have added to the network is a HP running Windows XP Media Center Edition. I can not get it to recognize any other computers on the network. I have everyone on the same WORKGROUP, I have disabled all the firewalls, anti-spam, anti-virus, and yet it won't find any of the other computers. I can ping any and all the other machines, I am able to access the internet but I can't get it to find any of the printer servers or for that matter any of the other machines. The network properties has all the standards checked [client for MS Networks, File Print Sharing, TCP/IP]. Any suggestions? CB

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
