Preferred Solution: Network Time Protocol - Vulnerability

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 can't sync the time. I get an unknown error when connecting to the two default time servers in XPpro SP2.

I'm using just a dial up for right now. Also using Zone Alarm free.

Any insight?


A:network time protocol

Are you letting it thru Zone Alarm. Is Zone alarm blocking the request going out or coming back in. NTP runs on port 123.

When I start up my system after windows has loaded a message appears saying saying "Error with network protocol 2, Error 59". This message justed started appearing within the last two weeks and it's never given me that message before. I have a dial up modem and I can't get on the internet which would be useful. The only thing that I've changed recently with the system is the sound card. Any clues on how to fix this error message?

A:network protocol error

Hiya and Welcome

The only thing I can find on Error 59 is this


This is to do with Protocols, although check to see if you have them first:


Just as an afterthought, Have you tried the Repair? Control Panel | AddRemove. Click on Microsoft Internet Explorer. Ckick AddRemove. Choose Repair, apply and restart.

Also, you say this has happened after you changed your soundcard. If you remove it and place the old one back in does it still have the error?

I have a strange problem with my uncles desktop pc. That pc has to be always on for video recording but once in a while Windows will automatically reboot and i just can't exactly find out why.
But why i did found out is that he's always getting 3 error messages (in the Windows event viewer) about 20 min prior to the unplanned reboot. 
These are the error message in the event viewer:
1) The following fatal alert was generated: 10. The internal error state is 1203 --> Schannel ID3688 --> time: 19:00
2) The same as above on the exact same time with same event
3) RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client --> TermDD ID50 --> Time: 19:48 (about 25 min prior to the reboot)
Who can help me out here. This is driving me crazy. Sometimes we miss days of recording, while we aren't using that PC for other things.
Thanks in advance!

I did quite a bit of online research prior to asking my own question, but none of  the solutions I've found online really pertain to the issue we're experiencing.  
We have 2 Windows 7 Pro PCs in the office.  They are accessed via RDP from within the same network/location.  The systems that are accessing these 2 PCs are an XP Pro machine and a Mac.  The clients stay connected for randomly lengths of time
(no longer than 1 hour) before the session goes black and disconnects them randomly.  When the disconnect occurs, it's not due to inactivity.  The user has to wait several minutes before they are able to reconnect.  
On the Windows 7 PCs, Event Viewer gives:
Event ID: 50  The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.
Event ID: 56  The Terminal Server security layer detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client. 
I've seen suggestions of checking registry keys and a lot of suggestions regarding Windows Server and Terminal Server, but they don't apply to our situation.  Please let me know if more information is required.  Thank you!

A:The RDP protocol component X.224 detected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client.



Do you enable the
IEEE 802.1x authentication?


Regarding the issue, I suggest updating the network adapter driver manually on Windows 7 PCs. Also update the router's driver and firmware.


If the issue persists, you could disable the TCP Offload. To do this,


Run the following commands on both the client and the server to disable NIC offloading.


netsh int tcp set global chimney=disabled

netsh int tcp set global rss=disabled


Modify the following registry key to disable netDMA on the client and the server.




Note: If this registry entry does not exist, right-click Parameters, point to New, click DWORD Value, type EnableTCPA, and then press ENTER.


Value: 0


You can also refer to the following KB to troubleshoot the issue. Hope it helps.

Hi and thanks to anybody kind enough to help me. I checked my networkk adapter protocol and I have only 8 and should have at least 10. I reset winsock and restarted and I still only have 8. I looked at my network adapter and it reports ip address, ip subnet not available and dhcp not enabled even though it's enabled in my lan settings. I'm running a 24 hour line monitor and I'm showing 90 percent plus packet loss, and the pings to the monitor servers in California and Kansas are 3 to 4 ms's. I know the pings can't be right because I ping Los Angeles a couple of times a week and it's usually around 40 ms's. I hope I posted this in the right forum. I'm a newb here and the only other one I could think to post this in was hardware. The ping thing is bizarre and I'd like to fix this network adapter issue. I may have to wipe and reinstall or worse trash a new motherboard. Thanks again.

God knows how this happened, but I've been yanking my hair out attempting to fix it.

I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron 9300.

Upon restart a few days ago, I was unable to connect to any wireless connection. My Wireless Network Connection Properties box looked as such:

After re-installing the Intel/Pro Wireless 2915ABG program/drivers/etc., when I click on "Configure" it goes to the adapter's properties screen. (woohoo!)

However, I have no TCP/IP protocol. I click on "Install", choose "Protocol" and receive the following error:

"Could not add the requested component. The error is: The system cannot find the file specified".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's making me positively nuts.

Thank you!

NAP clients are computers that report system health to a NAP enforcement point. A NAP enforcement point is a computer or network access device that can require the evaluation of a NAP client’s health state and optionally provide restricted network access or communication. NAP enforcement points can be IEEE 802.1X-capable switches or VPN servers, DHCP servers, or Health Registration Authorities (HRAs) that run Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The NAP health policy server is a computer running the Network Policy Server (NPS) service in Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 that stores health requirement policies and provides health evaluation for NAP clients. Health requirement policies are configured by the administrator and can include settings that require that NAP client computers have the latest antivirus definitions and security updates installed, a personal firewall enabled, and other settings.

My computer is hardwired to the modem. Another computer in the home uses a wireless connection.

A week ago both computers were being used online. Both computers lost internet connections suddenly.
Our service provider instructed me to connect the hardwired pc to the router instead of the modem.

The wireless connection was restored but the wired pc still wasn't making a connection.
I wasn't able to start my antivirus either(the desktop shortcut to my A/V program is a dead link (nothing happens) and the desktop icon for the A/V link is now just white (it doesn't pick up the icon provided by the A/V program)

I always use trials of top A/V programs (of course, only one at a time = Avira,AVG,Avast)

I managed to scan with Windows Defender). It showed 0 detections. I noticed Defender's last update was in July, and for a few months hadn't been able to turn Defender on (although I ran it a few days ago.)

The wireless has connectivity.

There are no indicators of network adapter problems shown in Device Manager

I booted into safe mode but still no connection

I have used a restore point to a time a week before this problem but still no internet access.

I don't think my adapter card went out(considering both pcs lost connectivity and the wireless also was out last week until our service provider asked me to connect the wired pc to the router.

The Internet port on the router is wired to one of the LAN ports of the moden.

SMB (Server Message Block) is the protocol Microsoft uses to share
files, printers, serial ports, and also to communicate between
computers using named pipes and mail slots. In a networked
environment, servers make file systems and resources available to
clients. Clients make SMB requests for resources and servers make
SMB responses in what described as a client server, request-
response protocol.

By sending a specially crafted packet request, an attacker can mount
a denial of service attack on the target server machine and crash
the system. The attacker could use both a user account and anonymous
access to accomplish this. Though not confirmed, it may be possible
to execute arbitrary code.

Sate of connection = red 'x' over network tray icon.

Can't connect through wireless or wired connection. If I try automatic troubleshooting, it says it couldn't identify the problem. I've tried Googling for a while, and have tried Winsock/Winsock2 reg key deletes, several netsh cmd resets, uninstalled and reinstalled hardware/routers (through software, not physically).

In device manager, I have the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and Realtek RTL8191SE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter both running (supposedly). Initially, they both had caution symbols on them, but i uninstalled/reinstalled, and now they are clear of symbols. In "IPConfig", the only thing that appears are 2 VMware Network Adapters (they are supposed to be there) and a "Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" - not sure what that is.

Something else is definitely a major problem: When I open up "System Information", then navigate through Components>Network>Protocol, the entire list, which should have 10 items, is empty.

Any ideas?

howdy all,

I came in this morning from the weekend. Tried to logon but I received the following error message:
"current time on this computer and the current time on the network are different."

I checked the time on our server and it was off by about 10 minutes. I changed the local time on my machine to reflect the same time on our server but still no avail.

Is there a fix to my predicament? Do I need to have the local time be updated by our server every time I logon? Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch!


A:Unable to logon - Local time and network time are different

Network setup problem. See your network system administrator, unless that is you.

We use free time clock software available by download. TClockex, and others.
They set your time by reference to an atomic clock online, and you never have to worry about it.

You can also set your desktop to synchronise with the network time automatically at boot, but my memory is not what it used to be.

I'd appreciate some help. I'm a computer dunce, and I don't know what I did to my system.

I run Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite with a Realtek wireless card. I ran ad-aware to clean up my system. It brought up a list of many proposed changes (cookies, registry), and I approved it without looking closely.

After it removed the problems, my wireless internet ceased to function, but the ethernet cable still works. The Windows diagnostic states:

"The Windows wireless service is not running on this computer."


"Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter."

I downloaded and ran the most current drivers from Realtek and the Windows Update, and nothing changed. I've read some posts where people think this kind of thing is a registry problem, but I have no idea.

Any ideas?

I registered to forums to get help to solve wireless adapter issue I am having.

I have been looking for help in Lenovo forums and AV provider: problem is still on.


I changed AV software from Symantec to F-Secure. I uninstalled Symantec software and installed F-Secure software. Laptop is Lenovo T520.

What happened

First I recognized that ping commands caused Windows to crash. Then I uninstalled some VPN softwares and ping started to work. Operation did something to wireless and LAN connections, they did not work anymore.

LAN started to work by removing LAN drivers from device manager and reboot. After reboot Windows reinstalled LAN drivers and LAN was ok.

Wireless is a pain in there. I have tried almost everything. All Lenovo provided network softwares and power management tools are uninstalled and reinstalled together with wireless drivers. Wireless driver is not recognized by Windows.

None of automatic repairs or wifi uninstallation operations have corrected problem.

I collected some logs which might help, but now I do not know how to proceed. Windows reinstallation is something which I do not want to do.

I was going crazy trying to figure out WHY every time that I booted up my computer (or rebooted) running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit that an "unidentified network" --a public network--would appear along with my normal home network as a local

to keep doing this every time that I booted up my PC, so I called AT&T (since I have an AT&T modem/router for AT&T U verse internet and TV service) and all they could do was send me a new router--which I did NOT want to have to set up and then

A:Connected to 2 Network at same time

I use Microsoft Virtual PC to host one domain controller and one workstation as a test system. The problem is if I close virtual PC for a while and open it again and to try to logon through the virtual network it says that the time on the system does not match the time on the network. I googled around and but could only find that I have to use the net time command to set the workstation to synchronize with the NTP server on the domain controller. I tried this and the workstation says that the command completed successfully but if I try to logon to the network again I still get the same error

A:Network time services

Are both virtual instances on the same PC? If so this is very interesting as all virtual instances should pull their time from the time setting of the machine running the virtual instances making them both 100% the same time regardless to anything busted with NTP.

Have you checked the time zones? Dissimilar time zones have caused problems in the past with my clients not having the correct time.

Does any body knows how to synchronize the time on all client computers on a nt domain.

i have windows 98 clients, PDC and BDC


A:{Advice Given} - Network time


In the Logon script of all the users add the following line:

net time \\domin-name /set /y

That will set the time on the client machine to be the same as that on the PDC.

On the BDC's, have set up a Scheduled Task to reset the time every 12 or 24 hours. To do this, create a .BAT file with the command that I have used above. Then either use the AT command from a command prompt, or (if you have IE5 installed on the BDC) use the Scheduled Task Applet to create a task that every day will run the .BAT file.

If you are using the Scheduled Task Applet, make sure that the task runs with Domain Admin priviledges. This is so that:
a) it can change the time on the BDC, and,
b) get the right time from the PDC

If you are using the AT command, then you need to go into the services applet in control panel and double click on the Scheduler Service. You have to make sure that the service is started automatically, and for the account to be used to start the service, you need to give a Domain Admin account.

Getting straight to the point. I have windows vista ultimate with sp1, my motherboard is an abit in9 32max wifi. Around a couple of months ago my network connection started crashing without any reason at all and the only way to restore it back was by rebooting. Basically i get disconnected from my network and afterwards when i start searching for networks i can't find any. I am not using the wifi but the ethernet and when i lose network connectivity the ethernet cable is still working since the lights are still going on. Pinging the router or connecting to it is not possible. It's as if no ethernet cable was connected, and even if i switch to the other ethernet port nothing changes. Crashes occur pretty randomly, i can have one after 20 minutes or after 10 hours. On top of that i also have another computer with windows vista ultimate connected to the same network and i have no problems with that one, so i can safely assume that is not a router/switch problem.

I ve tried doing a memtest and i couldn't find out any memory problems.
I ve tried formatting and reinstalling windows and that didn't work out as well
I have all the latest drivers for my motherboard

I am out of ideas and i don't know what else to do so i would really appreciate a hand . Thanks in advance

A:No network at all need to reboot every time

Hi there,

The sudden loss of network connectivity and internet was a previous bug in windows vista but that was rectified with sp1. Does your windows vista have sp1 installed if not update vista with windows update to sp1. also still if this is the problem you would need to check you hardware try inseting a another netowrk card and check to see if the problem still arieses.

Hope this help

I know nothing about a network, other than the concept and terms, so I really need some guidance getting this off the ground. I have two computers connected via a router, but at the moment, neither computer sees anything on the other computer. I want each of them to have as much access to each other as possible, how do I accomplish this...starting at step 1.

Hi am having this problem i have a network which is made of 1 dell server and 3 dell pcs. I have this problem that once every day at 3pm the pcs freeze up they just stop I have to restart the pcs for it to work i think its something with the serve not to sure.

A:PCs on network stop every day at same time

hum; only one of the clients systems and the others are ok or is it the server itself?

does your network still function for file/pring sharing and the Internet as well?

what kind of freeze; mouse stop tracking or windows will not minimize?

what services are the clients getting from your server; a domain controller or
what else?

A:2 network cards on same time

You cannot have two NICs with two different default gateways. I'm not sure if Windows Server has any built in mechanism to support SLA features or keep alives. I doubt it. I have seen the ability to team NICs for active/active or active/standby. But these technologies work with having a virtual IP floating over both NICs.

Hey, when I boot my PC and get to windows it always takes around 4-5 minutes to connect to the home network and I can't find what is causing it. I have booted in safe mode with networking and it connects pretty much instantly, it is a wired connection, no other computers have the problem and I have tried booting with all start up/services enabled and tried with what I generally have disabled, neither making a difference.

Any ideas appreciated :)

A:Network Connection Time

Try running this MS auto Fixit to reset the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), there are manual cmds you can enter as an Admin from the cmd prompt but this will do it for you. How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

If that doesn't do it, then backup your router's config, factory reset the router then restore the config, which will then save you having to enter all the details again as in an initial router install.

It's best to go into Network and Sharing Center/Manage wireless networks and remove any SSIDs so the reset connects afresh before doing the reset.

Sometimes a router factory reset does the job when connections become buggy.

Have you also checked Device Manager/View/Show hidden devices for any yellow alerts ?

I have cable internet service and I just bought a new laptop. I know that I can get a wireless router for networking. What router should i get because I want to link my desktop, laptop and printer on the same network wirelessly. Keep in mind that my laptop doesnt have a slot for a wireless card But has one built in. Also what exacty does a USB wireless adapter do? Please help.

A:Setting up a home network for the first time

I would reccomend a Netgear or Linksys router.
Note: Cisco owns Linksys, so you know they are good.

Wireless USB adaptor is used in the event that your machine doesnt have a Wi-fi adaptor. It provides the ability to move it from machine to machine so install is easy.

I have two wireless PCs, one is a laptop with Vista 32bit and the other a desktop with Vista 64bit. Otherwise they are configured with all the same software. The Vista 32bit PC connects to the wireless network in 5-10 seconds at start-up. The Vista 64bit takes nearly two minutes to connect to the network at start-up, from the time the network icon appears with the red X to the time it shows connection and the red X disappears. After they are connected to the network, both run normally. I have searched the net and found several issues relating to slow internet speed with Vista 64bit, but nothing addressing the initial network connect time. Any ideas what may be causing the difference? I have verified drivers are up to date, and compared all the network properties settings between the two systems. So far, no idea why the 64bit system takes so long to connect to my network. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

A:slow network connect time

Hi ron and welcome to the forums.

I had the exact same problem until last week when I re-built my desktop computer and installed Vista x64 instead of x86. I also struggle with that for many many months to the point of just learning to live with it. What I did remember is that there were several apps and services that had a "delayed start" (check your services and also type msconfig at the "Run" box). I bet my problem was the network disk that couldn't be found no more (I unplugged my old-old system months ago from the network). After the "One or more devices could not be found in your network" bubble/message, the "X" turned into a little world and had no more problems.

Try installing the TuneUp Utilities 2009 and running EVERY tool in there. It should fix it.

I have an Asrock Z77 Pro 4 motherboard, 2500k CPU, WIN 7 Ultimate 64 bit OP system and there's some trouble with it. Few days ago i had a crush and the blue screen appeared. I can't remember the error code. Since that, my Win 7 OS can't show the exact time and the network's connection is gone too fairly often. I updated the BIOS and updated the internet time server several time but shortly the punctual time goes out again (even if i change the BIOS time). The windows always fix the network's problem, saying i didn't have a fix IP adress, but after the fix i have (i have a router). I don't overclock my CPU. Somebody could help me?

Is your BIOS time changing? If so i would suspect your BIOS battery is failing and should be replaced.

Dear all:
I have an in-house W2K Server OS that has finance application software running on it. Recently a lot of my users are experiencing connection time-out problem when running that finance application's client software on the client machines. All the users can still go on internet and access local file sharing.

Is it a NIC hardware problem or it is a W2K Server DHCP problem? I have users who obtain IP from DHCP as well as fixed IP. Or the bandwidth is not big enough to handle all clients' usage (current 10/100Mbps base for 20 concurrent usage)?

Thank you all... >__<

A:Network Connection Time-Out over Server

If other things work OK for the same users then the problem is not with the NICs or the DHCP.

Maybe the server is under heavy load or the number of simultaneous connections to it is limited? Check the server logs to find out and check the CPU.

When the timeout occurs, can the clients still ping the server? Maybe you hav some faulty cables or networking gear somewhere between the clients and the server?
