LAN network for server/client only, USB hotspot for server internet.

Q: LAN network for server/client only, USB hotspot for server internet.

A friend is moving his business, and the new business park that he's setting up shop in does not have anyway to get any wired internet to his building, excluding a T1 line, which he can't justify the cost of.

One windows 7 machine acts as the server, primarily for Quickbooks database, and there are two other windows 7 machines that are clients, reading off said database.

He's getting one of those usb dongles for wireless internet service, for the server only (the other two computers will be tethered to a smartphone for internet for QB and windows updates periodically).

They do NOT want to share the servers wireless connection to the other machines.

My only concern was if the server will continue to try to check the LAN for internet connectivity, or will it check both network connections when one fails, or is there a setting I can tell them to change to ensure it knows to go to the wireless dongle for internet all the time, without interfering with the workstations talking to the server over the LAN to get to the database?

The setup at the old office was business class DSL, they are using a relatively new Linksys router, which had the DSL authentication information.

Thank you!

Preferred Solution: LAN network for server/client only, USB hotspot for server internet.

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 managed to find a solution this morning, for anyone that's interested, the whole article is here: Multiple Network Connections at the Same Time on Windows | Ivan Zlatev

But the short answer is, under the advanced properties of TCP/IP v4, uncheck automatic metric, set your internet to a value of 1, and the LAN to a value of 9999.

Just wondering if its even worth the trouble, since what I have works OK, it just doesn't offer all the options that I am looking to play with.

Hi,

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

I hope I am in the right area here as I believe this is a Norton problem
At random times I get the following message while running M$ internet explorer.
"Common client network proxy server has encountered a problem and needs to close" it then apologizes for the inconvenience. I did have this problem a few months ago and I was directed to uncheck the box that states "Use a proxy server for this connection" (Tools - Internet options - connections - settings) I did this and the problem stopped, but now it is back and the box is still unchecked. I cannot find anything else that seems to sort the problem.

When looking at the information that is sent to Microsoft I have the following information.

Error Signature
SZ APPNAME: CCPROXY.EXE
SZ APPVER: 2.1.6.3
SZ MODNAME: PFMISC.DLL

These files I believe are associated with Norton.
If anyone could give me some advice I would be grateful as it is driving me potty because you have to close down after it occurs.

Hi I'm working on a client/server with the Java programming language and trying to figure out how to protect my server. With my current Virus/Firewall protection suite theres nothing I can do to keep out unwanted Java applications on the port I choose to allow the Java SE Binary through for clients accessing the server application. ESET Smart Security 4 is what I am using. Does anybody know of a security suite that would allow only a specific Java application to get through the firewall?

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?
 

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server.  The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host.  Neither the server or client computers have internet access.  I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients.  I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.

Hey all I have 6 workstations and one server and we’re having trouble keeping the workstations connected to the shared drives on our server. I think that it might be a DNS error but don’t know how to isolate it. Our network is configured as follows:

6 clients connecting to our router and 1 server also connected to our router and our router then is connected to our modem. The DNS on our server is set to be static with a preferred DNS of 127.x.x.x and nothing for the secondary. Our client machines are using the DNS provided to us by our ISP which is 68.x.x.x and a secondary of 68.x.x.x.

Now my question is should our server be using the ISP DNS settings or should the client machines be using the server DNS setting or should they all be using the same thing and if so how will that impact our connecting to our domain and or the internet?

Also you might be able to shed some light on the fact that our windows 2000 clients seem to be able to connect to our server much faster and more efficient than our WinXP boxes and don't lose connectivity. Do you know why that is?

Thanks in advance.

I have two HP Proliant Microservers both running MS Server 2012 Standard, both also running Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition. One server is staying in my house and that is the Management Server, the other server is going to my Gran's old house and that is a Managed Client. Now obviously the two are designed to be on the same LAN and there doesn't seem to be any way of setting the client to look to the management server over the internet, so I was looking for a way to forward the specific port that they communicate on over the internet to the server in my house.

I've been looking into VPN's and it seems that although they can join the two networks together, everything internet related also goes through the VPN which is NOT what I'm wanting since that slows things down. I want to be able to use the "remote" internet connection for Windows Updates and FTP etc without having to have everything come back to my home network. Sure I can forward the internal communications port to the internet, but without some way of directing the traffic over the internet I'm at a loss as to what to do.

I've had hamachi and Teamviewer mentioned to me, but I'm not really fond of Hamachi since it's quite slow and I'm worried about the potential for hacking since I don't know if it's really secure (I've not looked into it as yet) and I'm not sure Teamviewer will do what I want since it's mainly designed for remote control of computers rather than port forwarding to a spe...

A:Connecting a Client to a Management server over the internet

Seems that I may have solved my own problem. There is a way you can update the communication settings on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Client via a package that you can create and save to your computer from the Management server or it's Web Interface, within that package is an exe file and two XML files. Upon opening the relevant XML file, it reveals a "Server Address" Field which was the IP of the server on the LAN. Changing that to the hostname I had set up already for my home network then saving the XML and running the update tool on the client has hopefully allowed the Client to communicate with the management over the internet.

In addition, if I run Internet Explorer as administrator (Right Click\Run as Administrator), I am able to browse web sites without receiving the error.

I've tried cmd release, flush, renew to no avail. I've changed the DNS address to 208-67-222-222. Uninstalled the wireless adapter, restarted and reinstalled. Unplugged the modem and router and then reconnected.

Sometimes internet access will be restored, but minutes later the DNS server pops up again.

Good afternoon all,

After trawling Google for solutions I'm not sure what to do.

Brand new comp running Windows 7 and using a wireless network adapter. The network signal is saying I'm connected and that there is internet access, but there is not. I've tried a different browser and nothing. Then an exclamation point pops up saying there is no internet access. I've troubleshooted using Windows and its getting the "DNS server is not responding" error. The internet was fine and then did a Windows update.

I've tried cmd release, flush, renew to no avail. I've changed the DNS address to 208-67-222-222. Uninstalled the wireless adapter, restarted and reinstalled. Unplugged the modem and router and then reconnected.

Sometimes internet access will be restored, but minutes later the DNS server pops up again.

I did a system restore to before the updates as a last ditch effort.

Thank you in advance!

I run a server for counter-strike, its a linux based machine, I would really like to setup the network so that the server is connected to my hub which in turn is fed by the modem (Rogers Cable), and another cable runs to the router which allows the rest of the computers on my network to connect to the internet. I setup a static ip on the server using my modem dns etc, but when the server has internet access none of the other pc's on the network can get on bt when i disbale the static ip of the server, it cannot connect but the rest of the computers can, I have tried everything but no luck if anyone could shed some light I would be very grateful.

Hello.

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop, with a built-in wireless network connector. Recently, I have come across the problem of not being able to connect to the internet. I've tried on multiple browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE), but all come up with some sort of "Server Not Found" message. I am connected to my usual wireless network with a good signal strength, but I am still unable to get on any web page.

I've tried disconnecting and reconnecting to the network, and restarting my computer, but to no avail. Other computers on this wireless network (like the one I'm on now) work fine.

Thank you.

Hi,
I am first time around here seeking help.
We are in a small office and are currently using one Desktop computer as a File server by sharing a folder using the existing WiFi from Internet router. This was done by connecting one LAN cable from the Router to the Desktop and the remaining computers connect to the router through WiFi. This way, each user could browse the internet while also having access to shared files from the central Desktop.
We are in the process of shifting to a new office where some users are seated far away, also the maximum connections possible in the router through WiFi is 16. So, we have laid LAN cables and got 2 Low cost network switches (unmanaged...TP Link 1024D). At the moment we are not planning to purchase a Server, but continue to use the same desktop. Instead of continuing to use WiFi, it is planned to make use of the new LAN cables and Switches.
The problem is if I connect the File sharing Desktop on Port number 1 in the Switch, I will not be able to use internet in the computers connected through LAN cable (and vice versa). I need to use Internet as well as shared files from the Central Desktop.
Thanks in advance.

what "Makes" a server a server, and a client a client.

In other words, what would you expect to see running (software wise)

If you had say

XP
2000
NT

if somone asked you "is that a server or a client" how could you tell ?

cheers

Im thinking about getting windows server 2008 and building a machine for it to use as well, a server, for storage and hosting multiplayer games.

So my question is, how much faster or smoother would a dedicated game server run on a actual server machine rather than a peer to peer client machine?

Would i beable to notice the benefits? Would it be a waste of money?
 

A:Server or Client?

It would be a huge waste of money in a home setting IMO. There is very little to be gained, and the server versions of Windows are pretty costly.

Hi guys, I'm pulling my hair out here trying to understand Winsock headers.

My lecturer must have a sick sense of humour as he's set us the task of writing a UDP client/server after only studying C++ for 2 months.

I've managed to get a server up and listening to a socket. I've got the client to send the message and the server to pick it up and print it to screen.

The remaining horrors are

1) Read the IP address of sender and print to screen... just reading to a vairiable is the bit I'm stuck at.

2) Echoing the message back to sender and reading it...I'm a bit lost on this - can this be done with a simple swap from a send to receive socket? And how does the server get the info to send to client - may be related to 1) above.

Any help you guys can give would be great.

Hi All

I want all incoming and outgoing data from my PC to be more secure, so I
I want to set up an SSH server on my Home PC using Cygwin, but I also want the SSH client to be on my PC. Is this possible, or do I need to have an external/second PC to act as the server? Also, if all my internet traffic goes through this SSH server, how will it affect my normal browsing? Will I have issues connecting to my regular websites (youtube, facebook, msn, yahoo, gmail, etc etc)?

Thank you

Umm...that is not going to make anything more or less secure. SSH is for creating secure connections to remote systems. (Mainly for administrating) It creates a VPN in a way. It does not make your browser usage secure. Connecting to an SSH server on the local machine is pointless anyways. You are already on the local machine!

My friend and I set up an FTP server and client system, it was working fine at his house (on the same connection together) and again fine at my house (on the same connection again). So we leave back to our houses and try it and it doesn't work. I have FlashfXP and BulletProof FTP Server. Are there settings I can change or someway my firewall is messing it up. Thanks,
Chad

Hi, my ultimate goal for my questions is so that my laptop can access my home LAN anywhere as long as it has the Internet. For example, I have network shares named \\A\Z, \\B\D on my home network. My laptop, when it is in the LAN can just map those shares. Well, I want the exact same kind of direct access anywhere with the internet.

I've already gotten an account with No-IP, so the dynamic IP problem is taken care of. I've also created an incoming VPN connection on my LAN server and a VPN connection on my laptop and the connection actually got connected, but the subnet mask is always 255.255.255.255 and I cannot access the LAN.

The solution I'm trying right now is to use Windows Server 2008 R2 gotten from DreamSpark and Microsoft ForeFront (actually its predecessor ISA Server which I got from an IT course I've taken) which amount other things is a VPN Server. However, there must be an easier solution than to use Enterprise grade software right?

By the way, I do know there are easier solutions like Dropbox, but I just want to know how to do it.

A:VPN client and server

You need to make sure that you've got your routing and remote access server role configured correctly. You should be receiving an IP that allows for browsing the network, although netbios doesn't always work easily depending on the network topology. A couple of simple issues I've encountered are things like trying the VPN from within the network (rarely works), connecting from a network with the same subnet as the one you're connecting to (having the internal network 192.168.1.x locally and the network being connected to having the same 192.168.1.x address range), and lastly having firewalls not play nicely. I don't think you're having that issue since you've received an IP, albeit one that has a restrictive subnet mask. Start by checking the routing and remote access configuration on the server to make sure it's handing out the correct information to remote clients.
