Preferred Solution: How to block internet access to local machine users. The machine is in under domain control.

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.)

The last couple of days most of our domain PCs have been acting strangely.  If they were logged out, when you went to login, instead of the domain name being at the bottom, it was the local machine name.  You could still login using 'domain\username'. 
A reboot has been fixing this issue.
All the affected machines have also had this in their event logs
The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not obtain the name of a domain controller. This could be caused by a name resolution failure. Verify your Domain Name System (DNS) is configured and working correctly.
They can ping the DNS server (primary DC server)
There were no updates that were run over the weekend so we are not what has changed.
Thank you.

I need to set block inheritance on a local user's machine for the screen saver from the domain level. Here's what we have: On the domain controller, we have a Group Policy Object set to automatically set the user's Desktop to Screen saver after 10 minutes
(600 seconds) of inactivity. My boss has tasked me with being able to override this Group Policy on a local user's machine and set the screen saver to turn on after 20 minutes or more, since the user continually has to log back in and get's whatever session
he had going cut off and has to log back into that site as well.
 
My question is this:

Where in the local machine's Local User Policy would I create this policy?
Desired outcome: Override Group Policy from the domain. set local user policy for screen saver timeout to 1200 seconds. Please provide me as detailed a response as possible as where to go in Local User Policy and how to create this.

Thank you,

Chris

A:Override domain group policy for screensaver timeout and set it on local machine to 20 minutes or more

Hi,
We cannot override domain policy via local policy, processing of multiple domain-linked GPOs is in the order specified by the administrator, on the Linked Group Policy Objects tab for the domain in GPMC. The GPO with the lowest link order is processed last,
and therefore has the highest precedence.Alex Zhao

Hi all,

I will cut straigh to the point! I am wondering if it's possible to set up a VPN to connect to a PC on another network so i can access the other machines on that network. e.g If I have an office with a router and 1 pc connected to the internet and 4 more machines conected to the router but not going out to the internet. Is it possible to connect to that machine via VPN so then it would be as if you were on that network to then be able to access the PC's on the network?

If you need any additional information please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks,

Josh

A:VPN to access a local machine

Josh, welcome to the windows 7 forums.

One option which I use is a free vpn called Hamachi. It is owned by the logmein people but it does have a free version. It is encrypted and allows you to access the other machine using either Remote Desktop Program or another of the free programs like VNC. There is also the free version of Logmein.

search on hamachi and you should be able to see what it does. They do have a pay version but there is a free version.

We are running 2K Active Directory with internet connection thru ISA. Users must logon to the network, then if going to the internet they are prompted to logon again to ISA server. We have mandatory profiles that do not let them access options for internet explorer. We have discovered if a user logs onto the local machine and not the network, with the network cable still attached, they have straight access to the internet without logging thru ISA and therefore no record of their activity. Any suggestions where to start looking or known issues or have we simply missed something.

I am on a Windows XP Pro machine, service pack 2 or better.

Some while back, I tried to set up an internet gateway over the LAN through another machine. I'm pretty sure I used the Create New Connection wizard from the Network Connections (My Network Places) window.

This machine at that time did not have a functioning modem on it, and the other machine did. The other machine, however, was (still is, actually) connected to the LAN via a wi-fi card. Anyway, I could not get the internet connection to work, which is to say, I could go online on the other machine, but I could not share the internet connection with this machine. Later on I got a working modem for this machine, and now I've got high-speed internet, so the problem has long since been rendered moot.

The problem at hand, though, is that in the Network Connections window, where the old "Dial Up" and "LAN or High-Speed Internet" connection icons are shown, I have an icon that keeps popping in and out between these two.

For maybe two seconds at a time, I see a heading come up "Internet Gateway" and underneath it appears an icon saying "Internet Connection on VAIO". It disappears as soon as it appears, and then maybe 25 seconds later it pops back up for a second again. Well, sometimes it stays on the screen for 8 seconds.

I want to delete it, remove it entirely, but when I right-click on it, I find the Delete option is greyed out.

I have two network cards that connect to two different networks. The first network only should communicate with the computers on the local network and the second should be used to connect to the internet.


How do I force the computer to use a given NIC for internet access and the other for local file sharing etc?
 

A:Block NIC from internet access but not local network

Instead of two nics for access to different networks and functions, would it be easier to have just one nic if you could find something that restricted all network traffic allowed in/.out of the NIC so it would only talk to networks you want and use remote services you want, etc.

Would that fill the need? You need one NIC and a firewall.

Win 10 machine has fileshare being accessed by XP and MAC machines without problems.
Trying to connect a Win 7 machine but it insists that the login does not have access to the share.
The login and password are valid. The share and security is open to everyone. All machines are in the same workgroup.
The win 7 machine can see other machines on the net and the Win10 machine can see into shares on the Win 7 box.

I'm busy configuring a fileserver at the moment using winxp pro. It's going to be connected to a lan through a wired connection to a Netgear DG834G router. I wish it to be accessable through the LAN, but I don't wish it to have internet access (with the exception of very few addresses, such as AVG update, spybot update, etc)

This computer isn't going to be used as a workstation at all, and so if something goes wrong, such as the firewall crashing, it won't be noticed. For that reason, as well as blocking massive address ranges through the firewalls advanced rules, I wish also to block the same ranges from within windows. As I understand it, the HOSTS file only deals with outbound traffic, and so I would like to know if there is a foolproof way of blocking these ranges from within windows itself.

Or have I got it all wrong? lol
 

A:limiting internet access for 1 machine on lan

The right way to do it is to block the addresses from the router. Your router almost certainly has a packet filter in it. In there you specify "allow" rules for the server that let you access the specific IP addresses needed.

The second correct place to do it is the packet filter (or advanced rules or whatever) part of your software firewall. Again, you only give it a few "allow" rules and then put a "deny all" rule in the end.

After changing XP Mode's network adapter (in order to get port forwarding working), I found that I cannot access the internet using a browser anymore.

I went from Shared Network to Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller in the Virtual Machine settings, which broke its internet connection completely and gave the "limited or no internet connectivity" message. After going back to Shared Network, when loading any page in any of the virtual machine's browsers (Firefox, IE), the page would remain blank then time out after a while. However, pinging websites using cmd worked in the virtual machine. Using the 'repair' option in XP's Network Connections did not help. Disabling the firewall did not help either.

Also, the Windows 7 host machine's internet is working fine.

How do I fix this situation, without having to start anew with another virtual machine?

I posted in another section about my troubles, but was advised to post here, as I may have a malware problem.

I tried running both the DDS and the Gmer scans, but the DDS would hang up every time. I don't have any script blockers running, as far as I know, and turned off the anti-virus just in case.

The Gmer scan worked fine, and the results are attached.

Although the Wireless indicator says I'm connected, no browser or email program can access the internet. I've since removed the USB adapter for now (Netgear Wireless-N WN111v2). I have a recent driver for it, and tried reinstalling it.

I've tried many other things as well, such as resetting the TCP/IP via Microsoft's FixIt tool, to no avail.

I had recently uninstalled Norton 360, and suspect it may have screwed up the Windows Firewall, and perhaps that is keeping my programs from connecting. I can't start the Firewall to make any changes to it. There are several processes, in fact, that won't start (like DHCP and DNS), and the only thing they seem to have in common is dependencies on the TCP/IP Protocol Driver.

When I go to the Device Manager and view hidden devices, that driver is not working, and can't be started.

Please help! Thank you.

The Domain Admin group is the highest level in NT 4. You may want to try adding the computer name to the domain on the PDC, then try to add the XP box to the domain. You will need to either log on locally to the PDC or run Server Manager from your WS and add the computername (NetBIOS name of the XP box) to the domain. Once the name is associated with the domain, the join function will not ask for a username and password.

Some anti-exe programs will block rundll32.exe.
Until now, they cause no problem on my virtual machines.
But what about the real machine?

I heard that some drivers of nvidia graphic cards depend on rundll32.exe. So I guess permanently blocking it may cause some problems on some real machines.
However, this information is a bit old, so I do not know whether it applies to the modern drivers and systems or not.
I cannot verify this by myself because my graphic chip is integrated into the CPU.

So my problem is, would blocking rundll32.exe (potentially) influence the stability of the system?
 

A:Is it safe to permanently block rundll32.exe on the real machine?

What is rundll32.exe And Why Is It Running?
Since there?s no way to directly launch a DLL file, the rundll32.exe application is simply used to launch functionality stored in shared .dll files. This executable is a valid part of Windows, and normally shouldn?t be a threat.
Note: the valid process is normally located at \Windows\System32\rundll32.exe, but sometimes spyware uses the same filename and runs from a different directory in order to disguise itself.​
Read on about using Process Explorer to find out what's running rundll32.exe, then you can determine if it's a good idea or not.

Did you check if these anti-executable software block the genuine rundll32.exe or fakes?

I am running Windows 7 Ultra on several PC's in the house.
I also have a Windows 2003 Domain Controllers that these PCs belong to.
One of those PCs, is in my home office and is shared with 3 local users and one local administrator on that PC.
I need to find a solution where all of the local users and local administrator are displayed on the logon screen.

I read somewhere that if a PC belongs on a domain, the welcome screen is not shown, the login screen is shown instead.
Typically, without a domain, the welcome screen shows all the local users.
If a computer belongs to the domain, the logon screen can only show the last user or other user.
This PC is shared and I don't want to burden my wife and kids to type the DomainName\UserName or .\UserName when they try to login.
Most likely they would forget to do this and login to the domain (which I am trying to avoid).

I'm using the DHCP server on the router for every machine except for the NT4 Server and a printer. I have those addresses set aside as static so the router doesn't hand them out. The XP machine is able to get an IP with no problem. Can surf the web with no issues as well.

The problem happens when I try to login to the domain from the XP machine. It's somehow unable to find the domain/PDC. It can't ping the PDC by name but can by IP. Once I run "nbtstat -A" against the PDC's IP address, it sort of refreshes and then I can ping the PDC by its name, connect to the domain, basically function normally. But a few minutes later I'll have to start the process all over again.

I tried manually setting the XP machine's DNS server to the IP of the DSL modem but had no luck with that. I was able to join the domain successfully and the machine shows up in Server Mangler as a WS.

EDIT: Almost forgot, I had Norton Internet Security running but disabled it thinking it'd help but no luck there either. The NIS may prove to be more trouble than it's worth and I'll get to learn scripting for the firewall in the router.

What else can I do??
 

A:Trouble connecting XP Pro machine to NT4 domain

I may have found the answer to my own problem. I found this article on the MS Knowledge Base:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q314366

I still can't ping the server from the workstation but the connections within XP haven't been dropped. Still waiting to claim victory on this for a little while.

I'm having trouble adding a w2k laptop to our nt domain. When trying to add it to the domain using the wizard, I get the following error:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domainname". The security database on the server does not ave a computer account for this workstation trust relationship.

What does this mean, and how can I get the laptop on our domain?

Hello all,

I am hoping someone here can help me with an issue I am currrently facing.

I have created an VMimage for my compnay to use. We are offshoring some activites and wanted to have the offshore company use their PC with my compnanies VM image loaded on to it. My company used Active Directory to create machine names before joinning to the domain. The Vm image is not able to join my companys domain. What things need to be considered to add the machine to my company's domain on this offshore company's PC? The error they are recieving is The following error occured attempting to join to the domain: XXX; The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

They have also tried adding the host machine to the network with the same error.

Themachine is added using AD, and he tried to add the machine to the domain, the machine that was created in AD becomes disabled.

Also the host machine is set with a static NAT.

Any feedback is welcome.
Thank you

Hello all,

I've just spent the last day and a half reading forums, but no-one seems to have had the same problem as I have.

We've just bought a new vista business x64 machine to add to our existing network. All the other machines are running xp pro sp2. I've added the vista machine to the domain and logged in using my domain id. In the 'Network' folder I can see all the other machine names. So far, so good.

If I try and access one, however, I get one of two things:
1. A dialog asking for username and password. It doesn't accept anything I type in.
2. An error message saying the account is locked.

I can ping any of the xp machines, by name or ip and get a response ok.

Trying to access in the other direction, all is fine. From an xp machine, I can access any folder on the vista machine, make changes, everything. I've installed LLTD on one of the xp machines, so it appears on the full map thing, otherwise it has made no difference.

All folders have been set to 'Everyone full access'.

Any ideas?

OK so I've got Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 installed on a 2 different Virtual PC's and I'm trying to create a domain on my the server and get the XP machine to join the server but i seem to be having some trouble.

First thing is in the Virtual Machine networking options i get a choice to use either the Shared NAT, Internal network or my NIC card for my network, what one do i choose so only these two Virtual PC's can talk tot each, as if they was connected to together physically or through a router?

EDIT - When using the Internal network option, on both virtual machines im getting a APIPA address (169.254.xxx.xxx) and when using the Shared NAT / NIC i can connect to my router...
 

A:Virtual Machine - domain issues

Set up the server with a static IP address outside of your local non-virtual network. Set up DHCP on the server with your scope and other settings. Use local only if you do not want it to interact at all with your real LAN.

I recently removed AntiVirus XP 2009 from my machine, a Dell Dimension 3000 with Windows XP. The next day, the internet was down and I went to restart my machine and when it came back up, it went to a blue screen with the words The image GDI32.DLL is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum. I did a search online and came up with a resolution and got into Windows Recovery Console and fixed the issue. Now though, I start the machine up and it goes to a different logon screen then I had and when I type in my password for any of the users on the machine it says Bret1 domain not available. My machine is not part of any domain(Bret1 is the computer name). Help. Thank you.

My main NT machine cannot see my local network. The problem is not card or cabling. Forgive the long message, but I want to skip past the fixes I've already tried.

I have networked four machines in a workgroup called, let's say "Tollbooth.", with IP addresses in the 10.###.###.### range, incrementing the last digit, as described in all refence books (the IP addresses have been checked, verified, and rechecked) and using the same subnet mask (checked, etc.).

The machines are --
1. GreatOne, the Micron, NT 4.0 SP6a, diaup modem. 3Com 509 Combo NIC with latest drivers and diagnostics, RAS, NetBEUI, TCP/IP, WINS client. The NIC adapter is bound to all three protocols but not to RAS services. I have two RA WAN Wrappers listed; the one bound to everything but NetBIOS, the other bound only to "RA WAN Wrapper" [?]
When I choose Network Neighborhood, GreatOne can see the workgroup, but not the machines, NOT EVEN ITSELF.

2. Slippage,Toshiba Portable, Win 98, RealSYS MCMCIA card, Win 98 dialup for builtin modem. It can see [4] Zipper, and [2] itself. Cannot see [1] or [3].

3. Shapeless, handbuilt, NT 4.0 recently reinstalled and then updated with SP6a. 64 megs of RAM, 120mHz, LinkSYS card. Networked successfully before crash and SP6a (when running SP4). Can see [2] and [4], but it can't run Server services because "not enough server storage is available." (I have tired every legal setting for IRPStackSize [4-12] to no avail.) So it is inv...

A:NT Machine can't see local network

Check to see if the "Computer Browser" service is running on the NT machine Great One (under Control Panel/Services). If it's not start it. If it was running then stop and restart the service. If that fails remove great One from the workgroup and re-add it.

As for Shapeless I would uninstall and reinstall the service pack to see if that fixes the problem.

I would also dump NetBEUI on allv the machines since you don't actually need it when running TCP/IP.

Hope this helps.

DC: Win Server 2003
Laptops: Win7 Pro

When joining a set of laptops to the domain it prompts for domain admin credentials and appears to be successful, but gives an error of 'Changing the Primary Domain DNS name of this computer to " " failed. The name will remain domain.local
The error was:

The RPC Server is unavailable.

When attempting to add Domain Users to the local administrators group:
Windows cannot process the object with the name "domain users" because of the following error:
The RPC server is unavailable.
This happens even when wired on the network. I have tried uncommenting the localhost line in HOSTS, and manually adding the DNS server (which is also the DC).

Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Have you checked the RPC service on the server? Manually stop and restart it as well.

Hello, I recently upgraded my machine from windows XP to Windows 7. Ever since I have not been able to logon to the domain. The system always logs me on to a Temporary Profile; thus I'm not able to access domain resources.
I resetted the computer account and rejoined the machine back to the domain..but its still not being successful; the error message tells me another system has the same credentials as mine and thus cannot join the domain.
I also tried renaming the computer and pre-staging the computer account but its still not successful.
How do I go about this?

Talk to the domain administrator. It appears your old XP machines credentials (i assume you named both machines the same) are preventing you

I have many computers running Windows 8.1 that will be logged onto the same domain account. I want the profile to be built on the computers before the first time they log on to save time, as they will be logging on with a wireless connection being
shared with over 30 computers at once. 

Is there a way to build the profile in the background, so the users can still use the computers for unrelated tasks?

I have a new user object on the domain
New PC Fresh Image joined to the domain
Each time this user logs in they get a Temp profile. Whats odd is that no matter what machine new old XP Win 7 they get a temp profile. 

Any thoughts about the user object? It's not a roaming profile and it's the same default user that everyone gets.

A:New User on domain always gets a Temp profile. On any machine.

Hi,
What does the user object mean?  Is a domain user account? And what is the meaning of  the same default user that everyone gets? Is it a local user?
Do you mean that any machine gets a temp profile when this user account logs in?
Here are two discussions and one guide about logging on with temporary profile issue.
