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 have a Cisco catalyst 3500xl I ran the standard installation and entered a ip subnet and gateway that's all i'm new to Cusco but I want my ports all have internet access but not sure how

A:[solved] Cisco switch configure Cisco catalyst 3500xl

First question is what type of ISP service do you have and how many devices? If you want to connect 5 devices, you'll need 5 static IPs from your ISP. The reason is that 3500xl switch is a layer 2 switch only. Which means there is no routing /layer 3 functionality.

Cisco does provide occasionally good study and reference material for free. It is well worth the registration to be on this list because this is the fourth offer I have received from them on material that is otherwise very espensive to get.

Thought I would share this with those who are interested in Cisco and its products.

The link is www.cisco.com/go/mssmbetour1 a walk thru their site you will find other white papers and books available for little or no cost and when your learning Cisco cost is a major consideration.

I am trying to open up passive ftp to pass threw my network. The problem I have is with ftp data getting out to a server else where. The client on my network never gets a connection to the server and the file doesn't get transfered. Regular active ftp works fine. The problem has to be in my access-list somewhere.

Here are the lines in my access-list that might matter:

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp
access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp-data
access-list 101 deny tcp any any
access-list 101 deny udp any any

now the ftp-data line shouldn't that let in any ftp traffic coming in?

would I have to try something like this:
access-list 101 permit tcp any eq ftp-data any gt 1023

Any suggestions I will have to do in off hours so I don't interupt any traffic.

Thanks in advance,

A:Cisco IOS 12.1 on Cisco router

Is this a standard FTP port they are trying to connect to? The data connections use a wide rang of ports for the transfer of data, so limiting it to a specific port won't work. According to your access list the ftp-data is being allowed from any to any.

BTW, the remote server needs to support PASV.

Hey guys,

I have a networking question. The network i'm working on is build up of 3 cisco switches, divided into 10 different VLANs, VLAN2-VLAN11. In order to make communication possible between devices that belong to different VLANs, i thought i can assign an ip address to each device. So when i tried to do that, it didn't work and i had to take off the device from the VLAN in order to assign the IP address to it. Does anybody have an idea about VLAN Configuration?

Another question that falls in the same category; My laptop is connected to one of the ports for the configuration purposes. So when i tried to assign this port to a VLAN i got kicked out of the switch console.

Yeah, you need to do some reading.

Here's a quickie.

Each switch needs:

vtp pruning on
spanning-tree mode rpvst
spanning-tree root priority 1 (do this on one sw only)
cdp run
vlan 1

Dear all,

I am trying to connect to my workplace VPN via my wireless router and am having some problems.
I use Cisco VPN client 4.0.3
The connection is set via UDP. IPSec is enabled in the wireless router
I can successfully connect to the VPN and receive an IP. However I can not connect to some of the services like e-mail (outlook), Mapped drives, sometimes they work though.
I can use the internet and connect to some of the internal webservers.
The connection is fine when I use Dial up connection or connect using my Broadband modem ( via USB).
The problem occures only when I use my Wireless router. No firewall is enabled on the router.
Here are the Block entries from the VPN client Log.

747 12:06:57.589 07/17/07 Sev=Info/4 FIREWALL/0x63A00003

Hi folks,

I work in an enterprise environment and our users have Cisco VPN Client Version installed on their laptops. One of my customers recently got a new Common Access Card. We changed her client configuration to adjust for the correct cert, but she was still unable to VPN in. After closer inspection, we discovered that after changing the cert that she needs to VPN in, and then clicking Save, when we re-open the configuration, it has been changed back to a different cert. If I change the config manually by editing the .pcf file and then saving, when I re-open the file, the CertStore field has blanked itself out. This problem occurs before we even try to make the connection.

We have tried the following things to resolve this issue:
1. Uninstalling and re-installing VPN.
2. Installing older versions of VPN.
3. Other users log onto her machine and do not have this problem.
4. She logs onto other machines that she has never used, and she has this same problem.
5. Tried re-loading her certs.
6. She went to try to get her CAC replaced on the off-chance that the chip was bad, and they refused to replace it since the CAC passes their tests.

We are completely out of ideas here. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Hello, I have recently inherited a pix 501 vpn router that powers up and I can get to the set ip address. Of course it gives me the login/password screen which I have NO CLUE! of. I've downloaded all the info from Cisco but they don't offer a way of a hard reset that I see anywhere so I can reset ips and passwords to factory defaults.
Has anyone had a chance to work with these routers before that could offer some advice?
Thanks as always in advance!

In our office of 5 people we are using Cisco VPN. If one person logs on, it is fine and works, however if anyone else logs on, it will drop the internet connection/emails, then proceed to disconnect people from the VPN. We have another member of staff who works in the office next door and when she connects to the VPN using the same token, she has no issues and can continue, and we are not affected. Sometimes (once in a blue moon) we can all be connected with little to no issues, but this doesn't happen often.

This has been going on for some months and we have to restart each individual PC when we get disconnected. We have asked our IT company who we sub-contract out and they are unable to resolve this, however, have not looked into this in much depth.

Does anyone have any ideas of why this is happening? All 5 members of staff need to be connected to the VPN at all times, however we seem to spend most of our time in the office trying to re-connect and waiting for computers to re-start and such.

We are using Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit OS. We are all so frustrated with this so I have taken this upon myself to sort out. I have search forums all afternoon in regards with this.

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

A:Cisco VPN Disconnecting

To the best of my knowledge. Some NATs can detect the call ID “conflict” and will modify them to keep the multiple VPN connections unique. The NAT must have a PPTP editor to allow this. This of course isn’t something router manufacturers generally advertise on their spec sheets. You will need to go digging around on their website to find. For example on the Netgears routers VPN support page, you will see some Netgear routers only support one VPN connection; this will be where they can’t modify the call ID’s while some other Routers that could support multiple VPN connections. So kindly contact your router support center and make sure it's support multiple VPN connections.

Hello all, I am very new to the world of cisco routers and needed to see if anyone can help me. We have ordered two T1's for two of our offices to connected them via a PPP. We have to configure our own routers to have the two offices connect to each other. We have cisco 1721 routers with a T1 WIC. There will be no bandwidth hooked up to these lines as it is just going to be used to connect the two offices together for document storage. Sounds like an overkill right, well there are over 1.4 million documents that need to be scanned in and transferred from office a to office b. Each office has over a million docs to scan so thsi was the solution we were instructed to go with. In any case I need help in configuring these routers, of course there is no other information from the telco other then they are the basic ESF Frame and b8zs Linecode. I am assuming we are going to have to configure an internal ip on these systems to allow the systems that will be plugged into the router to talk to each other. Can anyone shed any light on any of this for me. I have been going through all the docs and test configs on cisco.com but nothing seems to be correct. Thanks

Just a quick question. I think this is the right place as it is networking.

I am about to try and learn and hopefully get a CCNA. I am building a few computers to produce my network but would like to ask something.

Where, apart from CISCO, would you get a CISCO network from? I'm after the hubs, etc, not a lead from one to the other, so that I can simulate the entire network. Need Routers, etc.

The book I have is from Sybex and although you can do some stuff without a network, there is some hands on exerience.

I would appreciate any help, no matter how easy. I understand TCP/IP but still stuck on Subnetting.

What I am really interested in is what do I actually need to get started? I'm in the CISCO site and there's tons.

Thank you in advance

I will sugust you to study hardware type some course, to get knowlege who computer works and if a hardware occors a problem then you will be able to replace the hardware like NIC card, RAM, etc
Because if you are going to do a network job no company will let you practice in a live envoirment.
Being a network expert I will sugust you to study MCSE first because this is the base of all networks and the things will be teached you quite deeply and all the LAN work as windows
Cisco Certification
LAN is the first step.
WAN is 2nd step like cisco’s CCNA, CCNP CCIE are the studies available.
In LAN you will learn who to take care of a network of 500 PC’s
but in WAN it will be teached that how to handle the trafic going towards internet and how rapidly it should work.
Without basic you cannot go up.
In LAN or MCSE will teach you some Remote desktop, how to logon others PC even you are sitting in London and you are using a PC which is in Newyork. and very Important
OSI refrence model
In which it is teached about the 7 layers of computer and on which layer what task is performed. In detailed In WAN Layers is every thing how the layers work and which layer performs which task.
If your basic concepts are not strong you will have difficulty to uderstand the WAN technology.

I am changing the wic on a cisco 1700 router from a t1dsu/csu to a 1enet. Is there anything I else I have to do or is it plug and play? Normally I would just do it and see what happens. I already configured DHCP, fa0, nat pools, static nat, static routes...everything but the s0 interface, DHCP WORKS TOO, horay! I should back up just in case. Anyone know if the 1enet is plug and play?

A:Cisco router wic

When I did my cisco 2621, I called the ISP, and they said that the WIC will gather all of the information from the line once it's up and plugged in.
So I would say that as long as you have your config backed up, plug it in and see if it works.

Hi All,

My first time posting here but seems like I have hit good company. Came searching for some clues to a specific problem I face regardimg implementing an idea from my boss
The scenerio: One students lab having 50 odd PCs connecting to Novell server via IPX protocol. The Novell Server is purely used for doing Print and File services. The Clients DO NOT require IP on the machines to get connected to Novell Servers. The nuisance is, they install IP addresses on these machines and start to browse the Net. They know the pool that we have and sometimes end up conflicting with already assigned IPs creating a mess on the network.

Now, I have tried Sunscreen firewall but couldn't somehow let the IPX pass through. he other option is one Cisco Router 2611 lying around with me with two Ethernet Ports.

If I assign one Private IP pool to this room and connect it to one Ethernet Interface of the router and let the second interface connect to my Office LAN and then put in an Access List that denies all IP but allows all IPX traffic to pass throught Ethernet Interface E0/0 to E0/1, would it help solve my problem?

If yes! Then how do I route all my traffic via E0/0 to E1/1? I am novice on routers, need some clues on configuring interfaces.

Any answers would be appreciated.
