Computers with xp announce to server they're master servers

Q: Computers with xp announce to server they're master servers

My Win2000 server recieves errors that some computer on network announced itself as a master server. it only happens with computers with XP windows. How to ignore these announcements? or maybe how to disable them? Thanks

Preferred Solution: Computers with xp announce to server they're master servers

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.)

A: Computers with xp announce to server they're master servers

This is a property under the settings for the network card. I don't have XP running at the moment so I can't tell you exactly where to change it, but the setting you are looking for is called Browse Master which need to be turned off.

I have already a Windows VPN server installed on a windows 7 laptop.
Now, I'm trying to setup a DIFFERENT windows VPN server on another windows8.1 laptop.
Both laptops are on the same wifi network.

The problem is that port 1723 forwarding is already used for the windows7 laptop.
It seems changing port 1723 is not allowed.
Is there another way, to set up a second different windows VPN server on the same network?
Thanks in advance

Hi. Here is what I am trying to do.
In room "A", I have one computer and two servers. In room "B" I have only one computer. I am using DSL-Ethernet. What do I need to do to set this up...and what equipment do I need? EG: Router...Hub, or switch, and how would I set this up? Take the Internet and run it into the router or hub, then run wires from each port of the hub or router to each server and computer? Help would be great! Please email me at: [email protected]

A:Connecting Two computers and two servers...help!

The easiest seems like:

DSL-modem --> broadband router --> PC(s) and servers

Ethernet cable from DSL modem to router WAN port. Then cables from LAN ports on router to the Networtk interface cards (NICs) in your boxes.

There are any number of suitable routers from Netgear, Linksys, Dlink, 3com, to name but a few. The wireless routers will also give you the option of using wireless as well as most of the wireless routers default to having built-in 4-port switches in addition to wireless capabilty (if you were considering wireless as an option).

I have been noticing that my computer has been running hot lately so I did some looking around and saw things in the syslog that seemed odd. such as pppd programs calling out, acpid loading client rules under different users. things like org.a11y.Bus: Activating service hame='org.a11y.atspi.Resistry then starting SpiResistry daemon then trying to parse desktop programs.
I have tried to lock down my box but it is tunneled through. So today I ran nmap scans from an outside computer to test my ports. Before I did this, I disconnected my wifi card and used <rfkill block all> command to try and make it impossible for my linux Ubuntu Gnome 15.04 from being detected, however my MAC addr showed up as, which is my modem/router and the weird thing was that there are other ip addy of and ~108, ~109 ~111 ~127 that have all these crazy things running on their ports.

I have my Internet Provider Modem plugged into the Ethernet connection on the master computer. This master computer has a second network card which plugs into a 4 port Router. I have two computers plugged into the router and they all have the Internet access through this connection. All three computers use WIN XP Home Edition.

The problem is that although I can accomplish file sharing between the 2 computers plugged into the Router, which I use to mutually store Backup Files, The Master Computer cannot see the other 2 Networked computers and the 2 Networked computers cannot see the Master Computer, so I cannot backup the Master to either of the other two computers hard drives.

What am I probably missing?? I established the Networking connection using the Microsoft Wizard and installed the network using the floppy created by the Master Computer during the network creation.

Thanks for any help!!!

Major problem really need help from a master of computer repairs cause this is a tough one.

I recently installed vista and had difficulty with my ati card trying to get the drivers on without the card in. Anyway was tackling this issue and my computer has just gone out of it. The main issues are:
I can't reboot because the DVD won't read any disk after pressing F8 all i can get at best is a message saying 'Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'. Everything is in place and selection is correct so???
Secondly if i go on to face vista I get the menu asking for safe mode or normal and I have tried both ways. In anything other then normal mode the loading bar comes up for vista and then the screen goes blank and the computer restarts. In normal mode the same happens but the computer doesn't restart just keeps going and till I turn it off.
Also i get lots of different errors on the startup screen most recently unknown bios error =DE92 couldn't find it on any website so not sure what that means, i get checksum errors (CMOS checksum bad) and (CMOS date/time not set) but randomly like sometimes i get them when i turn the computer on sometimes not.
Finally my monitor doesn't turn on most times. If I start the computer first time its fine but if i restart it the monitor won't come back on. I have to leave the computer off for around 5-10mins then turn it back on everytime the computer restarts.

First off Im no master by any stretch. Why are you trying to install ati

Hello everyone
so I have gameserer hosting website
and all my server I rent them from some website
now I have 2 server in my home but I will sell it
and I want to buy new one
but I don't know what is the beast part I have to get it ?
should I get E5 or E3 ? and 1cpu or 2cpu ?
I will host on it some game and its MineCraft and some other game from valve
the other game from valve is
Counter 1.6,scours,go
Garry's mod
Team Fortress 2

so what is the largest server can I have so I can host as many as I can on it ? and about the price I don't care to much on it so if you can just give me something good
I think I will host at less 20-30 servers on it

so what can you advise me ?

A:Bulid servers for Game-Server

Well I would do some researching on what people use for their servers because I don't have much knowledge personally on game servers. What I can provide though is insight on how the parts differ.

A Xeon E5 is based on a completely server-oriented architecture while the E3 is supposedly just a more high-quality binned i7.

I would read up more on server hosting requirements/what is best more in depth than I did below, but the consensus seems to be that the E3 or E5 is fine with lots of RAM. Keep in mind, the E5 can have twice as much RAM as the E3. Another thing to keep in mind is whether the game is multi-threaded or single threaded and the tick-rate of the server. If you have more players and the game is multi-threaded (Minecraft isn't for example if I am not mistaken), then go for the E5 just to be safe.

I was researching online about the CS:GO server requirements and came across this forum post and they linked to this dedicated server wiki page. Since Garry's Mod, CS:GO, and TF2 run on the same engine, the requirements should technically be the same. Minecraft isn't really too demanding either so you should be fine basing the server on Source games. Here are the requirements for a Minecraft server. It seems to me like the servers don't need much horsepower.

Here is another useful forum thread that will provide the best insight.

Id like to ask about 2 servers one of them is a HP Proliant g2 servers but my question is in one of the server we already have a Ram memory installed
Server1: 2 x 1GB 2RX8 PC2-5300F now i want to add plus 2 more memories with preferences: 2GB 2RX8 PC2-6400U-666 , Does anyone know are they going to work together even if the frequency is different?


Server2: And the other server has: 1x 1GB DDR 400 PC3200U So i want to add 3 more. Those 3 i bought are: 1GB 400MHZ 184PIN DIMM PC-3200U Will they work together with the one which is on server 2?

Please help me if anyone knows exactly because i dont want to try and crash the OS of the servers.Thanks alot

A:Ram memory for servers, can they work together on a server?

PC2-5300F implies DDR2 Fully Buffered memory whereas PC2-6400U implies DDR2 Unbuffered memory so they wouldn't fit into the same system. The speed shouldn't matter as memory speeds are generally backwards compatible but you can't run different types of memory.

The memory for the second server appears OK as they are both DDR Unbuffered, but what are the full ProLiant model numbers and part numbers on the modules so we can check compatibility for them?

I have a network (primarily Windows NT and 98) with 3 servers. 1 server is the PDC, the other BDC, and the third a member server in the domain.

1. The Server Manager in PDC cannot see the any servers OR the see both PDC and BDC as BDC

2. When I promote the BDC to PDC (let's call it PDCNEW), the new PDC (PDCNEW) can view every thing fine (i.e. the PDCNEW, BDC and member server)

3. The BDC and member server can ping (by name and IP address) the PDCNEW BUT unable to use resources in the PDCNEW e.g. cannot view the shared folders, cannot connect to the database (SQL 7) in the PDCNEW.

Would appreciate greatly if anybody has any suggestions

We recently installed ATA and got it up and running without any issues. We let it run for about a week and then we got a phone call from a server admin asking why our gateway server was constantly pinging his server over port 135 (pretty much every 5 to
10 seconds). The server happened to be an appliance with a Linux kernel so the traffic was getting blocked and was filling up the logs. We decided to shut down the ATA service on the gateway server until we figured out why this was happening. 
I tried looking for an answer but the only thing I could find was the following reference under the gateway requirements page:
As part of the resolution process done by the ATA Gateway, the following ports need to be open inbound on devices on the network from the ATA Gateways.

NTLM over RPC (TCP Port 135)NetBIOS (UDP port 137)
What I don't understand is, 1) what exactly is this doing on these ports? 2) why is it needed? 3) why would the gateway be scanning a non-windows machine that has no reference in Active Directory?
I found a spot under Configuration > Detection > Exclusions > DNS Reconnaissance IP Address Exclusions that looks to be where I would need to add my IP exclusions but I'm not 100% sure.  Nothing on Microsoft's website really explains what
this is.

I'm running Q3:A with the point release 1.31 (1.32 froze Q after the first time I played) and no matter what I do, cannot use the Internet to mass-murder. My buddy and I are attempting to direct connect via IP addies (retreived using the little readout at http://www.network-tools.com), but still to no avail. Has anyone else come across this problem? Something else to add is that, using the IPs from the address above, I can't even ping him, or vice versa. I've collected the basic stats about our computers; Let me know if you need more.
- XP Home
- DSL (routered)
- Q3A v1.32 (I've noticed this, and I am going to have him downgrade for the time being, but when we both had 1.32, it still didn't work)

- P2P networked on a home LAN
- Q3A 1.31

I have the following situation in my network:
a) 2 DCs - PDC & ADC (Windows 2003)
b) 2 DNS servers: Master on PDC and the other one on ADC
Both DNS servers are active directory integraded... (There is no standard PRIMARY & SECONDARY servers)...
Yesterday PDC went down... ADC & the other DNS server took their roles... Everything is OK so far.
I already have all FSMO roles seized by ADC... Now I want to promote DNS server to Master DNS server...
Is there any step-by step instruction for this operation?
Thank you in advance...

A:Promote to Master DNS Server

If its Active Directory integrated all DCs are DNS servers and all DNS servers are primaries and can make changes to the zones. So theres no need / it already is a Master.

Sorry if this sounds harsh or makes me seem like a bad guy but if you know about FSMO roles you should know about this - http://forums.techguy.org/site-comments-suggestions/743771-support-courtesy-tsg.html

If your game one of over a hundred using GameSpy Master Server Query, it has been down for the past couple of days. Or even if you have found it going up and down this may be due to either maintenance (for some) or a different problem for others. This has affected both older and new games across the genres.

You can read this "GameSpy's Master Server Query" Sticky by [WIZ]Falcon's (a moderator there) here.


It has come to our attention that the servers are not showing up in your game's server browser or GameSpy Arcade or on GameSpy Comrade.

There may be an error in the Master Server Query or there is possible maintenance that is taking longer then expected. The GameSpy Admins and Techies have been notified of the problem and are working on fixing it. It should be fixed hopefully soon so please just wait and look for another post confirming the fix or until you see servers in game.

The maintenance or error goes out to ALL games that use our Master Server Query. That means if the game uses GameSpy's server browsing to locate servers, you will not see any. You may how ever still be able to join game's by direct connecting to them through IP address.

A:Master Server Query

The Master Server problem seems to have been solved (we all hope)

I reinstalled my GameSpy Arcade, got the latest updates and allowed my firewall to accept it. My own games (RUNE and Halo) does show under GameSpy Arcade's "My Games" list.

For my main game (RUNE) I clicked on Multiplayer and clicked off "servers in my country only" to get all US and global servers. A list of both RUNE 1.00/Rune: Halls of Valhalla (HOV) servers DOES show up now. (Also HALO when I clicked on it)

Before, I could only direct connect to my servers using a list of server IPs/Names into my Rune systems for Direct Connections ("Favorites" Tab). So, I can connect through either the GameSpy Arcade and/or Favorites now.

HOWEVER, if I try any of the in-game tabs within HOV or RUNE Multiplayer's "Join", I get this:

Master Server Failed: Connecting to the master server timed out: master0.gamespy.comClick to expand...

.....go figure.

At least the Arcade servers are up.

I hope this really brings about the death of the hard drive. And it can't come soon enough.

I have in my network a server that i just changed it's domain.
After the change i noticed a most wierd problem.
I could ping, mstsc and everyting else from the server to other computers but all the other computers on the network can't find the server.
The problematic server is windows 2008 R2 server.
I already checked and shut down the windows firewall service (I set it to disabled).
Another detail that may be important is a little funny. The server is a VMWare server and the DC is a VM on it. Does it matter?

Can anyone tell me what's going on my server?

I am running a network at our office. We use one computer as a "server". This computer is running XP Pro.
I understand that up to 10 computers can log in and access this server at any one time.
My question is: Does the server computer accessing itself count as one of the 10 computers.

In other words. If 10 computers are accessing the server and the same database can someone also access this database using the database program on its own Drive C without conflict.

I hope this question makes sense. I tried searching the threads and nothing came up that answered my question.
Thank you in advance.

A:Number of computers accessing an XP pro server

This is not a theoretical question. I really have to understand this issue before I start buying extra copies of our billing program that is accessing our server at the office.
