Q: Looking for a website with a web based irc client that i can use to connect to any...

I am wondering if anyone knows of any sites that have a web irc client that they allow to connect to any server of my choice. Anyone know of anything like that?

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 try to connect to https://vpn.par01.softlayer.com web site with IE 11 and I always get the same following error message :

This page can?t be displayed
Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to https://vpn.par01.softlayer.com  again. If this error persists, contact your site administrator.

By clicking on the "Change settings" button associated with this error message, the IE Advanced option tab is displayed :

from there, I can see that SSL 3.0 and all TLS versions are correctly checked ;

When I do the same test from a colleague's PC with the same Windows 7 version and exactly the same IE 11 version,  there is not problem to reach this web page

When comparing Wireshark traces taken on both PC, I can see the following differences in the SSL CLient Hello packet sent by IE :

1) in the good case,  this Client hello includes 26 Cipher Suites, with TLS 1.2

2) in the bad case, this Client hello includes 24 Cipher Suites, with TLS 1.2

The 2 missing Cipher Suites in the bad case are the following ones :

Cipher Suite: TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA (0x0005)
Cipher Suite: TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 (0x0004)

In the good case, the Server hello sent by the server (in response to the Client hello) shows the TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA Cipher Suite is the one selected ;

In the bad case, the Client hello is answered by the server by a packet showing the following message :

I can't seem to find anything that mentions this anywhere. Are they the same? I know you can get viruses from downloading/opening emails in a client, can you from the Web? Which is more secure from hackers?

If I'm understanding what you're asking, you simply want to know if a machine connected to the server is turned on?

If that's the case, you shouldn't need a program; every server software I've ever worked with maintains a list of connected clients. Even if it doesn't, couldn't this function also be performed by pinging the computers?

Hello message board! Just a few questions here I can not seem to find out via Google, manuals, and reading other forum posts... We are attempting to utilize a t610 with the Linux based o.s. and are running into a few hurdles... I have seen on "Windows" based thin clients, after you make a change to something, you must "Commit" the changes... Is there a way to do this on a Linux box? It seems that the o.s. partition is Read Only?? Also, is there a way to navigate files and folders on this type of thin client? I see the terminal in "Admin" mode and I can kind-of nav files and folders through the text editor, but I am at a semi-loss doing things this way... I know this may be a stupid question, but is there a way to re-image this thin client to a "Windows" based o.s.? The main problem I am experiencing is an add-on/extension in firefox is not "sticking" in my firefox browser.... I have installed the extension many times, and after I restart the browser, it is gone and my settings are reverted to "original"... I am taking a guess here, but I am guessing every time this client "reboots" it is booting to an image?? One last question, is there any "manuals" for these Linux based clients? I see most or all of the helps seems to be geared towards Windows, and would just like a reference... Thanks for reading!Brandon

A:T610 Linux based thin client

If you're talking about the HP ThinPro OS- Before you can make changes to the file system, you need to run this command from the terminal - "fsunlock". When you're done, "fslock" locks the file system again. There isn't another file explorer tool included that I'm aware of in ThinPro. Command line and the notepad tool are the only real ways to navigate the file system. If you're looking for help with something, keep in mind it is basically a stripped-down version of Ubuntu, with some extra utilities and GUI provided by HP. The nuts and bolts are the same as an Ubuntu build so I've gotten quite a bit of insight from Ubuntu forums online for problems that I've had. As for your browser extensions issue, depending on how you're doing this, you can configure connections to allow them to configure their own settings, or to use HP ThinPro settings. If you haven't allowed Firefox to create and use its own settings in the file system, nothing you change inside the browser will stick. I haven't tried installing a browser extension but I'm pretty sure that's where your problem is.

Hi there

I'm trying to look for an alternative robust email client to outlook -- want to start gradually moving away from Ms Office to cheaper solutions.

I don't like the way Ms is going with subscription based Office 365 and Office 2013 is IMO "The Pits" - office 2010 works fine but I want where possible to start using alternatives. Libre Office is fine for some things but not quite ready for prime time yet (IMO) especially for EXCEL but I can start moving away from office gradually with an email client first.

The email client must NOT be web or browser based (I Hate webmail type of things) and must support IMAP. I don't want it to have ADWARE or NAGWARE (you know those that keep persuading you "Please update to PRO version etc etc"). It must also support MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. It should ideally have a similar or identical interface to OUTLOOK -- simple plain, not like the background I've seen on some Gamers machines !!!!

If it can integrate with GMAIL that's fine but not mandatory. Preferably free too .

I did see a portable client ISCRIBE at i.Scribe and InScribe: A Small and Easy to use Email Client but it looks as if it might be a little experimental.

I discarded OPERAMAIL -- don't want any BROWSER or web mail type of stuff.

Linux has some decent choices such as EVOLUTION (probably one of the best if not the best) but Windows seems a bit lacking in this area -- pity OUTLOOK EXPRESS wasn't continued after XP -- it was small, simple and could als... Read more

A:alternative email client to Outlook (NOT WEB BASED) please

From my previous post in Need a good email client :
Mozilla Thunderbird. You might be put off by claims about its future (no more development) but it will still be supported for a long time (stability/security fixes still going on). Zimbra Desktop Incredimail Pegasus Mail Opera Mail eM Client Windows Live Mail / Windows 8 Mail App
When have you tried opera mail last ? It should be separate from the browser today (it still uses the old presto engine while the browser uses the chrome one), check here : Opera Desktop Team - Opera Mail

Thunderbird, and Zimbra are all good choices and should fit your requirements. eM Client is very nice but it supports only 2 mail accounts on free version. Pegasus Mail is quite good but the UI is old now and it doesn't feel like outlook. Incredimail has promotional tag lines in your outgoing email and some ads show up.

Not included in this list is Claws Mail - the email client that bites!, since I never tried it. It seems to be OK, it's open source and works on both linux and windows, the interface looks a bit like outlook express, and it supports multiple accounts and IMAP. It might be what you're looking for.

I am new to Exchange and am having some problems with it. I have two aliases set up and would like to move messages sent to either alias to a specific folder. In the past, I have successfully done this with client side rules based on a value in the subject line. Unfortunately, the text in the subject line is not standardized. When I receive an email sent to the alias it resolves to my username from the address book and is delivered to my inbox. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering if it's possible configure a Windows 2019 IIS v10 hosted Web Server to perform OCSP checking of client certificates that are used to authenticate?

It is my understanding that typically the Responder URL that the Web Server contacts in order to validate the client cert is extracted from the AIA attribute in the client certificate. But is it possible to override/supplement this with an additional Responder?

For instance, what if I set up an OCSP Responder in the same domain as the Web Server and associated its revocation configuration with the SUB CA binded to the IIS Site. Now if client certs come in for authentication  and have an unrelated OCSP Responder
in their AIA, can I somehow tell the Web Server to check also the aforementioned Responder that has been stood up in the domain?

A:OCSP Based Validation for Client Certificates Using Responder Defined by Web Server

Per a reply from Mark B. Cooper at PKI Solutions this is indeed possible. You must edit the following GPO in order to override the default behaviour of the web server which is to only check the Responder URL specified in the client certificates' AIA extension.
Default Domain Policy > Computer Configuration >  Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > expand Public Key Policies
Once a custom Responder is specified in the CA / SUB CA's revocation properties the above GPO will allow it to check that custom Responder URL first, then ocsp as defined in the AIA extension and then CRLs
Thanks Mark!
Will post reference links once MS verifies my account.

For some strange reason I cannot fully load beatport.com any more with any of my web browsers: Firefox, IE, or Netscape (for those of you who aren't familiar with beatport.com, it is almost entirely Flash-based). I believe I have the latest version of Adobe Flash installed (9,0,47,0). I'm on Windows XP SP2. I can load beatport.com just fine on my friend's computer who is also using Win XP.

When I try to load up beatport.com in any of my browsers I always get the same result--it loads the basic green frames of the website but does not go any further. I can't search, browse, login, or anything. It's worth mentioning that I'm behind a firewall on a router that I have no access to its settings (i.e. can't open any additional tcp ports), but this shouldn't be necessary to browse the web, right?

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

If a xp unit is directly connected to the broadband router, then there are also no problems. So it seem xp+sbs+specific websites are a 'no go'.

I have two user accounts on my computer. One is my personal one and is password protected. The other is for my roommates to use if they want to watch a movie or something (I'm a nice guy; they hardly ever use it anyway; not password protected) Yesterday afternoon I downloaded a Client software program from my University's software page. I wanted to be able to log onto my school's engineering servers from home. The installer told me to restart when it was finished downloading. Since I've done that, when I turn on the computer it automatically logs onto the movies account and not my personal one. When I click switch user, the screen goes black and comes back to the movies account desktop a few seconds later. Same thing happens when I hit log off. I have restarted and shut down the computer numerous times with no help. Does anyone have ANY idea of what I should do? Thanks so much for your help.

A:Downloaded Client Software from University's website, will not log onto my user.

Did you install using the movies account? Or does the movies account appear first on the screen you normally get to select which account you want? If either answer is 'yes' that may be a clue to what has happened. But for what to do about it you probably should start with contacting your university's IT department.

I am new to networking and managed to install a Belkin Pre-N Router to my windows xp pc with an ethernet cable. I also have a windows 98se pc, which I've installed a Belkin G USB network adapter. All was working ok for a couple of days, then it stopped (I don't know why).

When I originally installed it I was able to access:, however I cannot now.

the only way it seemed to stop was when i went to task manager to quit a 'blank page.exe'.

then i downloaded windows service pack 3.

A:pc says internet connected but IE and other web based apps can't connect

Do you have zone alarm? There was a conflict with Service Pack 3 and zone alarm that cause people to lose their internet access. Do other browsers work? Another test would be to open a dos window and type "ping google.com" and see if it tells "destination unreachable", which would mean your internet connection is totally dead, or at least your DNS server isn't working.

This thread shows my computer is completely clean of any malware or viruses.
Certain applications that use the same ports I guess; or something of that sort, as Internet Explorer cannot connect. Some of my internet applications work, some don't. For instance, World of warcraft cannot connect, and it uses the same ports as internet explorer. I can use firefox and a lot of other applications but when I try to use internet explorer (Which I never do, I just want to play WoW) It comes up with : "Cannot find Make sure the path or internet address is correct", It won't load any page you try to connect to, giving you the same error message every time. The same thing happens when I try to launch WoW. It says the same message except with the launcher page link as the one that it can't connect to. I type it into my firefox browser and it worked fine, so that shows that my router is not blocking their servers. This is very annoying and I would love to get it fixed. Thanks!

EDIT: It happens with ANY game that loads a page through internet explorer. And LAN Settings are all unchecked for Proxy and I've tried resetting it multiple times both with no effect.

A:Client want connect to Internet

Read other 10 answers

I was using the free version as a trial. It worked well for a while then quite working because free trial was up. I was labeled as a power user because I have multiple monitors. I have purchased the pro version but now the client computer will not connect to the computer with the license. It comes and goes. It will show up as connected for a few seconds then shows there are no other computers connected. The main computer shows the client computer all the time but will not allow me to mouse over to the other computer. Also the screen does not dim as it did with the free version. I have tried all the trouble shooting tips in the manual but none fixed the problem.

I am using two computers joined together with network cards using Windows 98 SE and I used ICS to get them running. I use a dial up modem connection. All works ok except when the internet disconnects, the client machine wants to automatically reconnect to the net. Is there a setting in the client I can set to prevent this?

A:Auto connect from client

There may be a more "sophisticated way", but I usually just disable the connection sharing when I want it STAY disconnected. Then re-enable it when I don't. Making sure you leave nothing open on the client may help too....ie: signing out of messenger services, and closing all browser windows.

Just a few thoughts.....let's see if anyone comes up with something better, I'd be interested to know too!

I have a network of 2pc and laptop .WLAN with access point. All seems to function ok except for the Internet Sharing. The Internet use is not heavy but it is desirable that each worker can access Internet from own computer mainly the 2 pcs and then disconnect. The problem is that the ics appears to dial up randomly. At present the IE is set at " always dial my default.." on the PC with Modem and ""dont dial" and "automatic detect settings" in lan settings " on other PC. Can someone help me with correct settings to stop this persistent dial uppping
I have stopped everything in Start Up thru msconfig, disabled windows updater from starting up, diable auto upadte from nortons, run spybot (only good old Alexis), YET Still the client ICS PCtries to connect to Internet on start up and randomly thereafter any suggestions .ITs testing me. The sledge hammer beckons. ;-].

I am evaluating a new web hosting firm. They seem good, but they have SQL 2000 servers. I run SQL 7 on my current machine. I can connect to the new database server fine with ASP through an ODBC DSN, but I cannot figure out how to connect via Enterprise Manager, Query Analyzer, or even Access 2000.

It is going to be a real hassle uploading data without EM or one of the other tools. Microsoft says that connecting via SQL 7 clients should be possible, but I do not understand this information:

[When using the SQL Server client connectivity components from SQL Server 7.0 or earlier, you must set up an alias using the Client Network Utility before you connect to a named instance of SQL Server 2000. For example, on a SQL Server 7.0 client, to connect to a named instance of SQL Server 2000, you must add an alias that points to \\computername\pipe\MSSQL$instancename\sql\query. If you use an alias name of computername\instancename, clients can connect by specifying this name in the same way as SQL Server 2000 clients do. For the TCP/IP Sockets and NWLink IPX/SPX Net-Libraries, you must use the Client Network Utility to define an alias on the client that specifies the port address on which the named instance is listening.]

Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks

A:Connect to SQL 2000 with SQL 7 client?

Yes, you can either Add a system DSN for your server, or go into start>programs>mssql7>client network utiliity and create an alias for that server. If you use named pipes, you need to configure one that shows what pipe that server is and the server name. If you are on TCP/IP you just need to add that server name, the IP and port number (usually 1433). If you go to the client network utility, it should be fairly self explanatory. After you add this there, you should be able to connect with enterprise manager.
Hope this helps

I set up a dc hub for people at work using opedchub.

The users that will be using this hub are pretty braindead when it comes to computers. I wanted to know if someone could reccomend an easy to use, install, setup dc client. It doesn't need a lot of frills, in fact they will only be connecting to one hub (my hub) with it.

I use DC++, but it always seemed kinda busy and bloated. I was wondering of there are any better options.

DOS Client cannot connect to XP (Professional) SMB Server

Please forgive the length of this message, I am trying to be comprehensive.

Let me first describe all of the contenders involved in this little affair. I have one MS-DOS 6.22 client that I will call “DOSM”, one Windows XP (Professional) system that I will call “XPM”, and a laptop (also running XP Professional) that I will call “XPLT”. The three above computers are connected via a network hub (not a switch). The goal is to successfully connect DOSM to XPM via NetBIOS over NetBEUI.
The problem, obviously, is that they cannot currently connect. As I just mentioned DOSM is running DOS 6.22, and using NetBIOS over NetBEUI. I have the other two systems: XPM, and XPLT configured to support the NetBEUI protocol. I have created shares on XPM and XPLT, configured file system permissions, and configured share permissions for the DOSM user to connect. I am not using the XP’s “simple file sharing” scheme, but am requiring real user (and password) authentication.
Interestingly enough, DOSM CAN connect to XPLT without issue, but can not connect to XPM. First, I tried to eliminate all of the “standard” mishaps associated with such a problem. I started by checking the XP firewall settings, and I believe they are acceptable. I have tested this connection with the firewall disabled. I have checked both group policy system settings and the security template for both machines (XPM, XPLT) attempting to remove differences betw... Read more

Hey all, I've got a challenging one for you...if any of you are nice enough to help. I would appreciate any help.

I have a co-worker who suddenly lost his windows user profile. He could log in (to our company domain), but none of the setting, desktop files, etc would load up. It was basically like a new profile. I tried copying his profile to a new profile. I was unable to do so and got a error message. I think some of the settings files are corrupt and won't copy. So no big deal, I was able to locate the necessary files in the corrupt user profile and move them to a new profile. The settings aren't so important, atleast I would like to think so.

All is good now except that while logged on to the domain with the new user profile, I can't log on to our other servers. We have a Windows server (the domain server, no issues), a Mac Xserve, and 2 LaCie snap servers. When I tried to connect by typing in the ip in windows explorer (//server IP), windows says I can't connect b/c I don't have permissions. I don't know why I didn't get prompted to enter a username and password? This happens when trying to connect to all servers (besides the windows server).

If I go to my network places>map network drives>browse, I can find the Xserve but when I select it, but Windows will not let me continue since the OK button remains greyed out.
The LaCie snap drives are a bit different. If I try to map the drive, it tells me that the drive is already... Read more

ok so im kind of new to networking and etc. Here is my problem im running a server on my pc it auto-detects lan ip and wont connect to wan ip for some reason i can't change lan ip or wan ip it auto-detects it, and if i use a VPN service ex: Hamachi/EasyVPN my server crashes assuming that it tries to use both ips as lan. I have been searching the internet for a way to make the server online so i ran into the option NAT allowing to map external ip (wan ip) to internal ip (lan ip) would this work for my server?

client >> WAN IP >> NAT Router >> LAN IP >> Server
normally a client only connects to the server using wan ip (im using a router)


Client >> WAN IP >> Router >> WAN IP >> Server
but the server wont accept incoming wan connections any ideas?
