ICS troubleshooting (network works)

Q: ICS troubleshooting (network works)

Running W98SE I just switched ISPs from IDSL to ADSL and after reinstalling ICS on the machine with the Internet connection, the other two PCs no longer have Internet access (applications such as Internet Explorer and Outlook Express can't find the Internet connection). The network still works (the 3 machines see each other just fine, can transfer files, etc.) W98 ICS help only says check that the client machines' adapters' TCP/IP obtain IP addresses automatically. Can anyone suggest a relatively thorough troubleshooting checklist for ICS? Thanks!

Preferred Solution: ICS troubleshooting (network works)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently purchased a new laptop running Windows 7.  On setup, I was pleased to find that it connected to my home network without much complaint.  However, I soon noticed a misstep -- after putting my laptop to sleep, upon waking, it
would consistently fail to connect to network.
I've tried disabling IP Helper, as well as the wireless adapter's IPv6 protocola
la advice on other forums.  I've also ensured that the driver settings do not allow for disabling to save power.  Seeing that none of these worked, I decided uninstall and delete the driver and install a newer version (in a related issue,
the driver update feature failed to detect the existence of a newer version -- why?).
This appears to have fixed the connection issue.  However, still, after sleeping the laptop and waking, although it connects to the router, I still need to reset the IP command-line via ipconfig /release + /renew.
I was running Vista on my previous machine, and I know that its Network Diagnostic tool would, when presenting solutions, frequently suggest that my computer had the wrong IP and that I should reset it.  I was hoping throughout this process
that the Network Diagnostic troubleshooter would present a similar option.  Instead, however, no matter what I do with my wireless, the troubleshooter only ever returns the message "Troubleshooter couldn't identify any problems."  Whether or not
I check the box for auto-repair or run ... Read more

Hi,
To avoid confusion Let us focus on the first issue within this thread first.
Can you access internet when connecting the laptop directly via cable?
Where did you download the newer version of network card driver? Usually, the “driver update” feature from device manager will go to Microsoft update catalog website for the corresponding driver instead of the manufacture’s website. AT
this point, I would suggest install the latest driver
here. Please note: Microsoft don't write drivers, for any driver related issue, the OEM is always the best resource to turn to. Your understanding is appreciated.
As a workaround, you can prevent the network card from sleeping by the following method:
Open Device manager->expand Network adapter-> right click on the wireless adapter->Properties->under Power Management tab, uncheck the box before “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.
Is anything unclear, please feel free to post back.

I have four monitors supplied by two identical Nvidia Geforce 210 graphics cards. I don't always have all four switched on, it depends what software I'm running as to whether I need them all or not. Recently one of my monitors, a 1920x1200 Iiyama 2607 has started giving me problems as it wouldn't always come on when I turned it on, but when that happened, if I logged out and back in (or sometimes if I rebooted) it would come on. I noticed that my graphics card started to describe it as a Generic pnp display rather than name it as a Iiyama 2607. All my other monitors are identified/correctly named by the graphics cards, and I think when I first installed it, it also was identified as an Iiyama. All four monitors have been connected digitally (two by DVI, two by HDMI into the graphics card with an HDMI->DVI adaptor into the monitor).

Just recently I've not been able to get any DVI input recognised by my Iiyama. I've tried both graphics cards, both DVI and HDMI sockets. I changed the DVI cable (though both my spare DVI cables are identical and pretty cheap so I can't exclude a problem there). I tried plugging the Iiyama into a different computer DVI socket, still no DVI input. I've done monitor factory resets, no DVI input still.

However, VGA works fine (other than being a high resolution the screen is a bit blurry so I'd like to get a digital signal back if possible).

Is there anything anyone can suggest that I haven't yet tried, to test for the problem or to get a DVI w... Read more

Hello, My wifi stopped working about a month ago. The wifi says "cannot find networks" while there are available networks. Tried system restore, wifi was active for 1.5 hrs, then stopped working (wifi icon went from "connected" to "connected with caution" to "unconnected but available networks" to "no networks available." The icon never got to "no network CARD found."). Tried command prompt troubleshooting, similar outcome; working wifi for 1.5-2 hrs, then stopped in the same fashion.

Hey guys, I have some trouble with my home network and I'm running out of ideas. I don't like to ask for help but here I am, a little desperate as well to be honest.

The network components:

Switch (10 clients, 1 server (Windows Server 2008 R2 with AD/DNS/DHCP), 1 router)

Now I bought a new Router (ASUS AC66U) for the second floor, which I configured as Accesspoint so I can use WLAN, also connected to the switch.

I flashed DD-WRT and everything seemed to work fine, but sporadically I lose Internet connectivity on my WLAN connected devices. Later I discovered, that I also lose connection on my clients when that happens.

I ran a wireshark capture on one of the clients and what happens now (reproducible) is that when I open a URL I get lots of TCP DUP ACK and TCP RETRANSMISSION packets, the site opens very slowly, if at all. Now the interesting part: When I turn off the AC66U and open up a site it instantly loads and there are maybe 1-2 retransmission packets.

I didn't run the wireshark trace on other firmwares I tried (ASUSWRT Merlin, stock firmware and TomatoUSB by Shibby) but the symptoms are the same.

In the source of the packets I see the MAC adress of the first router, which connects to my ISP and I guess there is some kind of conflict but I am by no means an expert to network related stuff.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could guide me through the setup of DD-WRT to coexist peacefully with the other router or give me some useful hints on h... Read more

Hi all, I really don't know squat about networks, frankly I am surprised that I got it working and kept it working for a couple of years now. Recently the teens got their own systems and everything ran smooth for a few weeks and now we constantly get internet outages.
We have a win xp machine that is home to the cable modem and a belkin router, model
f5d7230-4, a windows 98se machine with a belkin usb adaptor, another win xp also with a belkin wireless usb adaptor and a Linux machine with a d-link card. ( I'll have to hunt up the exact model) The problem is that we are constantly loosing internet on the second xp machine and the linux machine ( the win 98 machine isn't used very much, but is offline right now) Most of the times we lose it on the above machines but for the last couple of days I lose connection on the main one. I can usually get it back after unplugging the router for a few minutes and restarting. After a few minutes I get a yell from upstairs that " my internet is out again".

If you have teen girls, you know the yell!

Any ideas on where to begin?
Ps, she is yelling at me again! Says she can see that the network is there, is just won't connect.

Hi

The company that I currently work for has a server (windows server 2003) and roughly 16 desktops throughout our building (yes we're small).

For a while now, when one of employee's has had an issue, I'd use a remote desktop program (DameWare Mini Remote Control) to view what was happening and attempt to resolve the issue. Unless it was a hardware issue, other wise I'd be able to address most issues without having to walk to the other side of the building.

Long story short, we recently hired a new QA manager. He claims that remote trouble shooting is a very poor way to trouble shoot, identify, and fix problems. I was curious how true this is. According to his claims, if Access (or any other program) is having issues making their connection to the server, when I remote in, I could be re-establishing the connection, which won't give me the ability to replicate error/issue.

I've never heard of people saying remote troubleshooting is an extremely poor way to view issues/try to fix them. But I may be wrong.

Any advice (and do you have documentation/references to back it up regardless of if you agree/disagree).

Thank you for your help.

Recently, one of our old servers died. It was expected, so it wasn't to big of a problem.

I got a new server up and running, it was working awesome. So much faster than before. Anyways I re-installed my Panda Business Secure and pushed out the communication agent to all of the office PC's.

After doing this rollout of the communications agent, the network seems to be slowed to a crawl. Is there some free program that I can get or use to check why its going so slow? I am new to this job and unfortunately have no one to help me, so Im completely at a loss here and people are slowly getting mad.

A:Slow Network - Need Help Troubleshooting

What's it plugged into? (Switch, what model, what type of cable, etc)

What type of server?
What's processor load? (CPU, disk IO, etc.)
What processes are loaded? (Look at taskman)
What's it connected to? (Do netstat -no)

For what it's worth, a very common problem on switched 10/100 networks is Link Speed/Duplex. I wouldn't exactly call FastEthernet link negotiation reliable. If the NIC is forced 100/FULL, or the switchport is forced 100/FULL - the other side will never try PHY negotiation and will more often than not end up with mismatch duplex.

One WinXp machine is plugged directly into the wireless router with Cat5 cable and there is a desktop with a linksys wireless card and 2 laptops.

The workgroup I named Workgroup. Each computer has a unique computer name. The computer that is wired directly to the router is called JOY-DELL.

I can see the other computers and they can see this Dell, but when they try to access it, they get a message access denied. Error Code 0x80070005. The other WinXp machine said that it might not have permission, contact the administrator, etc.

On Joy-Dell, file & printer sharing is enabled. Folders are shared.

They all have AVG Internet Security and I went into the firewall settings and made the linksys router 192.168.0.1 to 25 safe zones, also setting for Small Network. I even at one point disabled the firewalls.

They can ALL get on the internet just fine, which tells me it's something else.

Hi, I'm a forum virgin so please be gentle with me.

I have a desktop and laptop sharing files and an internet connection via modem to D-Link router setup.

My laptop connects to the network via a Netgear PCMCIA wireless card when mobile and via an ethernet cable when sitting on the desk.

The wireless connection does everything it's supposed to do (network and internet access and sharing).

The ethernet connection only shares files but can not get an internet connection to be established.

I have Norton Internet Security but I think everything's alright with that otherwise I wouldn't be able to connect wirelessly. Correct? Are there different IP setup's for wireless/ethernet.

Why can I 'see' my desktop's files and share the printer via ethernet but I can't establish an internet connection unless I go wireless?

Everything's fine with the desktop.

My office has a few computers networked, and they've all got works 8.5 on them, all of them mail merge without problems - except for my own desktop machine!!

Can I stress again - these files work fine on all other machines (all XP), and the message pops up before I even select which file to merge with!!? Literally when I hit the menu item!

I tried uninstalling Works, removing all mention in the registry, and reinstalling - it still does it. The database file and letter files to merge them with are all held on another computer in the office, all computers access them the same way - using the MSHOME network, no workgroup or anything.

Any ideas?? Please help!!

I just tried opening one of the mail-merge letters and linking it to a completely empty database file, saving it and trying that on the problem computer. It still gave the error.

So it's 100% not the contents of any of the database fields that are causing this.

I have a D-Link DI-624 router that is acting up. I have 2 computers connected by ethernet cable and a laptop that I connect via wireless. The router occasionally reboots itself, causing all connectivity to cease. It also will occasionally just drop the wireless connection and then reconnect after a few minutes. I read on a another forum that this issue might actually be caused by my ADSL connection somehow. I find that hard to believe but I have done everything I can think of (firmware upgrade) on the router and it still acts up.
Is there a good way to determine that the phone connection is not the issue?

The problem seems to be me losing my connection. I'll either be playing a game or surfing the web when all of a sudden, the internet stops working. I've tried to look into setting up DDNS and signed up with DynDNS, but that's as far as I've gotten. All help is appreciated, and my current setup is Modem->PC (Not Modem->Router->PC)

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. My computer came out of sleep mode on friday without internet access. I immediately placed a support request with my network provider (I live at a university) but they have yet to respond. In the meantime, I'm treating the issue as though it's originating with my hardware and not theirs.

I've tried updating my network adapter driver, reinstalling the adapter, disabling services like Bonjour, restoring my system, entering safe-mode, releasing/renewing my ip, malware detection, disabling tunneling adapters, disabling IPv6. Finally, I lost my mind and tried a full reinstall of windows. The problem persists, unchanged.

I was having a real problem that ate up many hours
(see techsupportforum.com//networking-forum//94185-asymmetric-file-sharing-error.html) but a moderator on this board (johnwill) posted a helpful checklist. (see second post in above thread). In addition to that, I found my problem solved by booting windows xp into 'safe mode with networking'. This allowed me to identify the fact that my problem was caused by some application running as a process in the background. Eliminating the processes one by one from a normal booted machine, eventually restored normal networking and identified the culprit. I post this as a first step that might help anyone with a frustrating windows xp networking problem.

A:a good windows xp network troubleshooting checklist

That is one of the major premises behind safe mode; that it is just windows so that you can troubleshoot possible sources of errors either by creating new user accounts, or disabling various programs from running.
The inclusion of network support in safemode is a real big help too since it allows you to run online scans too.

Hi

Dunno if this is better in the networking forum or the printer forum but i thought i'd give this forum a try as i tend to think it may be the network but need opinions and why.

The problem is:

I've got a Kyocera FS-C5016 Laser Colour printer on a network (connected via TCP/IP not shared). I did one print to it this morning and that was all it would do for the rest of the day. I've tried to ping it, but failed. I've changed IP address,no luck. I've tried same ethernet cable used for this printer on a computer and from this PC I could ping other PC's and gateway successfully. I've powered off/on my switch and DSL modem, still no go. I've checked all network configurations on the printer, and all look good.

I've hooked my laptop to this printer with a cross-over cable and I can ping and print perfectly (same IP address on printer), never failed once. I've also hooked this printer to another PC's via cross-over and no problems there.

However as soon as i hooked the straight through cable to the NIC on the printer, bang, no ping,no print, thus no go. Printer says "Ready" on LED. I can perform internal prints without problems.

I have since added a add-on NIC to the printer giving it the same IP address as the onboard while having disabled the onboard NIC on the printer. I can ping, print etc all without issue.

I've never dealt with other than shared network printers, so my only question to toss out is have you tried reinstalling the printer software on the network? Or would such a setup even require printer software to be installed somewhere?

Hi,

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

Im using Windows XP Professional on both my desktops.

And a LinksysWireless-G PCI Adapter.
I have completed the setup, I have good signal strength. However I cannot connect to the internet, and The adapter is saying the it is "Aquiring Network Address"
Under the support tab, it reads that I have an invalid IP address and lists the ip address as 0.0.0.0. When I click repair it reads renewing ip address but never seems to renew itself.
I have disabled my firewall restarted both computers, router, and adapter multiple times and still have no success. Please help with any advice or recomendations.

Much appreciated

A:Wireless Adapter - Acquiring Network Address Troubleshooting

If your "setup" includes encryption and MAC addresss block or other filtering/security methods you should only add those incrementally as you know other stuff is working

Startout just trying to connect to a simple wireless broadcast and verify your adapter sees the SSID being broadcasted by the router.

Hello,

My machine has been experiencing intermittent BSODing over the last few weeks and I wonder if you could give me a hand troubleshooting it? I'll summarise what i've done so far. It's not given me anything today, as I say, it's intermittent.

System Info:
Processor Name: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
Processor Information: Intel64 Family 6 Model 60 Stepping 3
Graphics Information: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti
Mobo: Z87I-PRO
System BIOS: 0903
Installed System Memory: 16 GB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (originally installed on system)
Age of system: 1 year, 1 month
OS Reinstalls: None
This is a desktop PC
System Manufacturer: Purchased from ChillBlast
Troubleshooting so far:
* Checked EventViewer for after the crashes. The only useful thing showing is that the Kernel service is shutting down - which I suppose it would if power to it was interrupted.
* Opened up case to check components. Everything seated well. Extremely tidy cabling (if I may say so myself; nothing getting in any fan's way).
* Ran GPU stress test - all fine.
* Ran Processor stress test - all fine
* Ran driver verifier (ran for about 20 minutes) and nothing crashed.

Attached Files:
* PerfmonReport
* Your app collection dump
* IPDT Processor Test results

Appreciate your support :)

Hi BC

I am using XP. My wireless network is using the "G Wireless Modem Router3 by Belkin. It is running unsecured.

The network normally runs adequately - there are annoying moments when it just seems to freeze, but 30 seconds later it comes back to life.

Yesterday it was performing as usual (ie adequately). Today I cannot connect to the internet at all, either with IE or Mozilla (my normal browser). When I look at the network status all seems well - it is shown as connected, and the signal strength is "excellent". But the efforts to connect just time out: Mozilla says that "the connection was reset", lets you "try again", but it never connects.

I have AVAST running in fully protected mode. I decided to run Malwarebytes to check for anything unusual. It asked if I wanted to update the virus database - I agreed - it then hung, presumably because it could not make its connection! I ran it again, this time refusing to do the update, and it completed a Quick Scan reporting no problems found.

I disconnected from my network, and connected to a neighbour's unsecured network, and everything worked fine.

I switched my router off and on and tried my network again - same problem.

I tried doing a "repair" on the connection (by right clicking on the taskbar icon) - this operation rarely seems to complete normally on my computer. It frequently times out with a message like "unable to connect", but when you then examine t... Read more

Well, after 3 hours of trying to find a solution, I immediately found it after creating this thread. Sorry!!!

Anyway, the solution was to open the registry editor, go to: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network" and delete the “Config” value. I restarted my computer, and all was well.

I have an interesting problem that has been driving some pretty smart IT guys nuts. To perform my job I have to access a certain venders web pages that has security set up that I do not know all the details of. Anyway on the company PC using the company image that is a normal XP image and maintained by Comp U Com.

Any time I access this vender's web page it works fine until just after the log in screen. Once I put in my user name and password and click Ok IE just goes blank white and that's it. No error msg no nothing, its not locked up as the frame is still there and the world is turning but nothing else.

This happens on all the company PCs accessing this particular vender's web page as I went and checked. So I wanted to see if it the problem was in the PC or the network. I took the company PC home and was able to successfully log into that vender's web page from my cable modem at that house. Worked fine.

I have already added the vender web pages to the trusted zone and enabled all the active X and everything, deleted the cookies, tried some proxies etc. Every setting that can be done on the PC I have tried.

My question is what is the company network security system blocking that IE needs to work and how to resolve?

Thanks

Network works one way only. (Windows 7)

Nevertheless, it works only one way: from PC to laptop. I can enter laptop folders from PC but when I try to enter a PC folder from the laptop, I receive the message: ?You do not have permission to access PC. Contact your network administrator to request access?.
Each computer has only one account:- the administrator.
How can I make this contact or how can I solve the problem otherwise?

Assuming the security and sharing settings are the same "which is controlled at the C:\Users folder then about the only thing that would prevent the share from working is if the Advanced Sharing settings aren't correct, this assumes that some third party anti virus isn't causing the problem which they are famous for?

You can check the Advanced Sharing settings via the Network and Sharing Center, make sure that Network Discovery, File and Printer Sharing etc. are enabled on both machines.

Hello,
I am currently in Afghanistan, attempting to run a satellite internet network for the guys here. We have an "IDirect 3000" series satellite decoder/router and we have about 70 computers hooked up to this network.
My problem is: Everything on the network works perfect, instant messaging, pinging url's, everything, EXCEPT, accessing HTTP websites through a web browser.
When there is 1 computer hooked up to the network, it will work, and yes, even with a few more after that, but then, HTTP simply stops, and we have no idea why.
Could the configuration of a few people's computers interfere with the entire network's ability to view HTTP?
I don't believe that bandwidth consumption is the issue, because we can all still do VOIP with skype and what not no problem.
What could this be? We considered that the satellite decoder/router simply ran out of ip's, so we hooked up a linksys router and did all the routing through that, but still the same issue. (Please do not post replies about the linksys router, it is NOT the issue.)
I have searched through this forum looking for other similar posts, but have found no hits. Thank you for your time!

I recently built a computer and thought it would be neat and easy to network it with my old computer. It may be neat but it hasn't been easy.

I use a Linksys WRT54GS router and have cabled the new computer to it and use a Wireless G USB device to connect the old computer. Both computers access the internet and I can ping both of them.

My computers have two different names but use the same workgroup which I called Home. The new computer does network and creates a network drive, z:\ by default. I can save files, etc on the z:\ drive. The old computer connects to the network (the linksys software states that it is connected and there is a connection icon in the tray) but it doesn't create a network drive nor does it "see" the z:\ drive that the new computer created. I get the following message:

"Home 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 permission." Of course, I am logged in as the administrator on both computers.

The new computer uses an Intel Pro/100 M ethernet card and the new one an Intel Pro/1000 PL card. The addresses are different, one being 192.168.1.102 and the other 192.168.1.105. I have had two TIVO boxes networked for a couple of years using Wireless G USB devices and they still work.

What am I missing here?

My question is this:
My Hardwired Computers can see each other.
My Laptop when Hardwired does the same.
When on the Wireless connection (802.11a, WEP Enabled, MAC Filtered) The Laptop Wireless Can See everyone and share files from the hardwired, however the hardwired computers cannot access the Laptop. Pinging the assigned IP of the Laptop works from all hardwired comps, however pinging the laptop name does not.

The 802.11a Connection is via an AP. I've entered the MAC addresses of the hardwired computers into the AP Access Control ALLOW list as a thought. Still no go. The Same happens with WEP off. There is no Microsoft firewall enabled on the connection on the laptop, nor is there a Network Bridge on the laptop. I've tried the run the Network connection wizard, but to no avail.

So how do I get a desktop to properly see the wirleless on the Laptop? Thoughts?

Does the laptop have XP? You have to set up some permissions on XP to allow shareing.

My computer (Compaq Presario laptop with Intel Celeron CPU, running Windows XP Media Center Version SP 2) was working fine until a few days ago. Then unexpectedly, the internet stopped working. I was still able to see the other computers attached to the wireless network in my home, and I was able to transfer files back and forth to the other computers. However, when I used Internet Explorer, it came back with a message that the page was currently unavailable (I tried several different web pages, all of which I can access from other computers in my home, and received the same message for all pages). I ran AdAware and Hijackthis (I am no expert, but everything appeared normal), but still nothing helped, so I decided to try to re-install the operating system and files. This Compaq computer comes with a recoverable operating system on a separate partition on the drive which I can access using the function key F11 during startup, so I used that key and re-installed the operating system. Unfortunately, I had the same behavior - I can access other computers on my network, but I cannot access the internet. I then used the "PC Recovery Disc Creator" program installed on the computer to create a set of CDs with the operating system on them and then tried using these discs, using the option of formatting the hard drive before installing the operating system.

Hi,

A few weeks ago I bought a Linksys Wireless router for my home set up. I have a personal computer in my upstairs bedroom (lets call that PC1) and a sort of "work horse" in a downstairs studio (lets call it PC2), so I thought it'd be good to get a wireless set up so I don't have cables going everywhere.

Both computers are running Windows XP, service pack 3.

I got two USB TP-Link network adapters (one of them is slightly different, one is 54mbps and the other 108mbps, and have slightly different software but otherwise they're they same).

I managed to get internet working perfectly for a while now, and has been working PERFECTLY since, but I just can't figure out this network issue. I don't know a lot of the more complicated computer stuff, but I learn it pretty easily (and boy have a learnt a lot trying to sort out this mess!).

Symptoms:

For the most part, the two computers just won't connect with each other at all. Occassionally, the shared folders will show up under my network places, sometimes the computers will even show under workgroup computers, sometimes NEITHER computer shows up under workgroup computers. 99% of the time, if I click on any share folders, it'll show an error message ending with "The network path was not found". Sometimes there will be like... communication happening one way but not the other (I think it's mostly PC2 being able to access PC1, but PC1 can't get into PC2).
