Preferred Solution: Comcast to dsl server issue

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: Comcast to dsl server issue

If bellsouth's terms of service do not permit running a public server on your account, they may be blocking incoming connections to common server ports.

I just tried a tracert to dailylol.dynalias.org and the reverse DNS lookup for that URL came back as 192.168.1.2 which is totally wrong. The whole 192.168.x.x range of IP addresses is reserved for private IP addresses on LANs, not public IP addresses on the Internet.

I'm a Comcast customer. Four days ago, for about 20 minutes, I could not get to anything Google related (search, Gmail, Google Apps, etc.). Now this morning I'm having the same issue. For 15-20 minutes, nothing Google-related would work. Then it came up again for ten minutes or so, then nothing.

I've rebooted the modem, the wireless router, all computers... nothing helps.

Comcast is trying to help, but they think it's something at Google's end. Considering Google doesn't have one server sitting in one place, I doubt this. When my browser requests a Google service that request first goes to Comcast (right?).

BTW, all other websites come up fine when I'm having this issue. I can get to Yahoo, CNN, whatever with no problem.
 

A:Google on Comcast issue

I had the same trouble the other day where google was down a couple hours. I think it was google but who knows because I got comcast too. I did have a bookmark to google maps and that worked but that is maps.google and it worked.

I use Outlook 2003 and have several email accounts configured to it including my Comcast. Everything worked fine until last week.

When I send a mail from my Comcast account it shows sent in the sent folder but the recipient never receives it. I have verified all of my settings, called Comcast tech support and verified with them as well. All of the settings are correct. What is really strange is I have used the "Test Account Settings" and everything appears to work fine. I have tried to mail myself from the account and never receive it but it also shows sent.

If I mail directly from the Comcast web site it works just fine which really makes me think it is something wrong in my Outlook settings but it was working up until last week.

incoming server is - mail.comcast.net
outgoing server is - smtp.comcast.net

I have My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check marked and use the same settings as my incoming mail server.

Incoming server - 110
Outgoing Server - 587

Anyone have any ideas? I am frustrated now. Every other email account works fine. This same thing started happening last week on my wife's email also, she uses a secondary Comcast email to mine. She uses Outlook 2007.

Of course Comcast has no clue because it works from their web site.

Hi all,

This is just an interesting problem I discovered and resolved that I don't understand--but if someone else has it, perhaps this will help.

For the past few days, I have been unable to access my Home Page, which is www.comcast.net from IE.6.0.28. It appears that the site get's accessed, but then gets redirected--and IE sits there working and working, with lots of fast messages flashing on the screen in the lower left (where the status is displayed)--but eventually I have to STOP the access.

I could access the site from the same computer, using Netscape--or from a different computer on my same home network using IE.

I was going through the instructions to post a HiJack this log, thinking I had some sort of trojan or virus. One of the steps is to run Stinger. When I launched it, I noticed on the Stinger window, Scan initiated on Friday, May 26, 2006. OPPS, it is not May 26--it is March 26. A quick check, and sure enough my computer was on the wrong date. (I had looked at the calendar and accidently reset the time.)

I reset the clock and date, and just for laughs, went back to www.comcast.net. And it now worked!

I can't for the life of me understand why Comcast would care about what date I have set in my 'puter--nor why it only seems to matter when accessing the site from IE.

Any thoughts or comments!

Thanks

A:Comcast Bots and users have only Comcast in common???

I will assume you checked using Am I Botted? which gave you the names of the detected bots.Then again, there may be NO bot.Did you receive an email from Comcast about this?Unless they changed the wording of the notice, it says Constant Guard from XFINITY identified that one or more of your computers may be infected with a bot.That does not necessarily mean there is one.Do you have a network set up? If so, it could be on any of the computers that connect to your network. Then again, as stated above, there may be no bot on any of them.No, they will not be able to tell you which computer "MAY" have a bot.And in the Comcast help forum, where there are NUMEROUS posts about this you could be told by an employee (if one happens to stumble upon your post) that they observed signs of likely malware infection. If questioned they will then say you "likely" have a bot.The notice is tied to your MODEM which is why if there is a network you don't know which computer MAY have a bot.From cc_adame Comcast National Engineering in the Comcast help forum The notice is tied to your modemhttp://forums.comcast.com/t5/Security-and-Anti-Virus/constant-guard-alert-bot/m-p/1466883/highlight/true#M89772Something using your cable modem is exhibiting the behaviour of a bot.http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Security-and-Anti-Virus/constant-guard-alert-bot/m-p/1466891/highlight/true#M89773we're only alerting you because we are seeing activity from *something* behind your modem that is bot traffic.

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.

We run a web proxy server on our network for internet access.
On client machines (running Windows 2012 R2) I have configured the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer "Tools\Internet Settings\Connections\LAN Settings" to point at the designated web proxy server.
When attempting to browse websites from IE I receive the "The proxy server isn't responding" error.
Conversely, browsing the same sites via Google Chrome and Firefox (installed on the same client server) return web pages without error.
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.
It would appear that the issue is isolated to browsing via IE when not run in elevated mode.

I went out and bought a Linksys WRT160N V2 to replace my old wired router (which I had NO problems with, btw) and started having this problem on the XP computer that was hardwired to the router. My main computer (Vista) that was using the wireless adapter had ZERO problems.

The other day, I decided to switch the location of the router and modem to be closer to my PS3, so now my main computer is hardwired while my XP computer is using the wireless adapter.

It literally took me about half an hour to be able to reply to this thread because all I kept getting was "Internet Explore cannot display the webpage" and a "diagnose connection" button.

So, tonight all of a sudden my internet crashed. I waited a couple hours and it didn't come up so I googled the issue on my phone and was trying to fix it. Anyway, after running a diagnosis it said my DNS server might be unavailable. So, following some tips on a website I went to Wireless Network Connection properties and switched the option from "Use the following DNS server addresses" to "Obtain DNS server address automatically" and suddenly the internet came back up just like that. I'm confused, I didn't change any settings so what would have happened to cause this and how would the option get changed like that? I mean I never messed with any settings, I was playing WoW when the internet went down. Thanks for any help.

Edit: Actually I did turn on/off and reset my router/modem during the couple hours when it was down. However, it didn't fix the issue.

I upgraded the NT 4.0 server domain controller to a Windows 2000 server and immediately noticed that the XP client machines took a VERY long time to logon to the server. The server is running DHCP but I modify the DNS setting so that the XP clients have the IP address of the 2000 server DC as their DNS. This corrected the problem with the logon speed but it created another little problem.

When the 2000 server DC, which is designated as the DNS server, goes offline, all the XP clients are unable to access the Internet. Once the DC is online again, connectivity to the Internet is restored.

I do not know what options I have to designate the ISP DNS information so that the clients do not have to rely on the availability of the DC for Internet.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

PS..we are small automobile dealership that does not have a large IT budget. I try to do the best I can but it explains some of the older technology i am using.

A:2000 Server DNS issue

First, your config to point the clients to the server DNS is the correct choice.

The symptoms resulting from an outage of that server are normal - -
and should lead you to the solution that the DNS & DHCP servers need to be
replicated (ie two of each).

However, you can configure the clients with two DNS addresses:

the first one (being the primary) should be your internal DNS address
and the secondary might be any public DNS server like 8.8.8.8 (which is google)
DNS processing is to issue a request to BOTH dns addresses and to accept
the results of the first one to reply.
That then creates the situation (a race condition) that if YOUR server gets bogged down, the secondary is more likely to reply first.

You should really attempt to avoid all outages of your DC and to schedule all maintenance to 'off-hour' periods to reduce the impact to the clients

When i played about 2 weeks ago i would be able to go into the server browser and see a list of servers, Under servers then it showed A number like 284(950) meaning certain servers are being blocked by my Filters

But now I have all filters set to allow everything and i get 0(2521)
Meaning no servers can be seen, I cant figure out why,

Im running a store bought windows 7, Due to the fact my Graphics card cant handle the game, I run it in the games lowered settings which i have done since i bought the game without problems I added this to help figured out if its the issue, as far as i know its irrelevant

When i was playing inside of servers i had a consistent ping Or Latency take your pick there the same depending on your game of 60-75 (90 when i first load in)

Ive done a factory Restart and completely wiped it from my computer and that did not help I checked my router settings and all Ports used by this game a currently allowed

Im stumped, Any ideas?

I have a website on a server with Windows Server 2008 and been having firewall issues. On the client and server computers Privatefirewall v7 is installed. When the firewall is enabled on the server the website and VPN stops working although FTP, POP3 and SMTP servers work.

On the server the IP 192.168.0.2 has been added to the trusted sites and the 192.168.0.0 has been added to the trusted network. Windows firewall has been disabled on both computers.

Server
------
IP Address: 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.1

Client
-----
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.1
any help would be appreciated

We have a Windows 2003 server with two nics in it. Nic one is for user access to the server (192.168.215.27), Nic two is connected to a switch that is used for tape backup purposes only (10.10.0.16). The server is running our testing software from QuestionMark and everything is working great. But they have a tool that runs from users desktop called Author Manager that allows testing administrators to edit test question, answers and scoring.
Okay here is the problem, as long as nic two is enabled the author cannot connect to the server. If disabled then no problems at all. No routing is enabled and a persistent static route has been added to tell all 192.168.215.0 traffic is to use the default gateway of 192.168.215.1 only. We have seen this before with VPN client connections because checking with a tracert showed that the last connect was to the 10.10.0.0 subnet, but adding the persistent static route would correct that problem. QM support will only say that they do not support 2 nic servers, which I find silly.
So the question is has anyone had this issue before and is there a way to fix it. And if routing is disabled why would a nic pass its traffic off to another nic. Is thier anyway to force the two nics to isolate themselves from each other.

Why is it that after I login into my test server it takes five minutes on the loading your personal setting box. I have been testing DNS and kept messing and having to re-install and it would never take that long and now I got AD working it takes forever. I know the one and only fix I have experienced is to re-install. But just wondering how I would troubleshoot it. The preparing network connection takes a longer time also.

Yesterday at 3:05 PM we had a momentary power sag in the office, a couple of the office computers turned off, but after that everything seemed to be okay. Both of the users were able to restart their machines and continue working. This morning when I got to work I went to check the server which is working fine, but the tape drive seems like it has no power. when I try to eject the tape in the drive nothing happens. I also tried to format the disk by using the server software and it tells me that the "cartridge is not in place" It is connected to a UPS so I don't see why this would quit working due to a power sag. What can I do?

Hi,
I was created a DHCP server in Server-2008 r2 but it didn't provide IP automatically to client and on the other way in the roles sections when I click on DHCP, it didn't expand as other roles expand.
Please provide the solution.
Thanks,

Having a weird DNS issue. I have my TCP/IP properties set for DHCP with DHCP disabled in the router, but alternate configuration is configured. For some reason I keep getting DNS servers assigned to me that I've never used.

It keeps setting the DNS to staticly uses these addresses

85.255.115.75

I've flushed the DNS rebooted I've checked the Advanced DNS tab in the TCP/IP Properties and it also lists those DNS Server addresses there as well, I remove them and they just keep comming back. This is happening on 1 of 2 machines on the same network. Any idea what would cause this?

Linux running Fedora 14 is the NFS server and License server for my Toon Boom Animation software. Mac Pro running Mountain Lion is the client.

This set up previously worked but after a power outage the software will not open on the Mac since it cannot verify the license with the linux license server.

Network setup:

Motorola Uverse Wireless Router/Modem ---> TrendNet Switch ---> Server and Client

Manual IP addresses set for the server and client

I have to use NFS Manager on the Mac to be able to view and edit the NFS mounting, but upon starting it, I recieve an error message saying that the Mac has reverted back to Bonjour only operation and that there is a possible problem with the forward and backward name resolutions.

I think the router is handling the DNS, and I don't know how to resolve the issue... I'm not all that knowledgeable about advanced networking and have been barely getting by until now.

Both computers are talking to each other since I can access files that are on the Mac from the Linux machine via SMB. Haven't figured out how to access linux files from the Mac though.

I downloaded the 1.6 and 1.7 patches to my Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

For the past month I have been playing CoD4 with no problems. But after I installed the patch, non of the servers on the server list show up. I click refresh, and it connects to the master server, but then nothing appears.

I know for certain that my firewall isn't blocking anything.

IS there a way to fix this so the servers come up? Or even a way to remove the patch so I can go back to the older version that actually worked?

On start-up of IE 11 I get the following error msg:
The proxy server isn?t responding



Check your proxy settings 127.0.0.1:49376.

I do not use a proxy server. If I go into LAN settings and deselect the proxy server and select Automatic Detect,  when I restart IE the settings go back to requiring a proxy server?!?!?

Yes, I'm <that> stupid, so please take it into consideration. I manage a server that has a RAID 5 on it. Not knowing what I was doing, I removed the hard drive in Slot 0 and then put the same drive back in to the same slot. Now the server won't boot completely.

After booting, I see this message "Slot 0 HP Smart Array 5i Controller Initializing" for a good amount of time. Then is says 1784 Slot 0 Drive Drive Array Failure. Then it tries to boot Cd, floppy, hard, and NIC. It ends up with Non system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

It's a HP Proliant DL380.

So, how screwed am I and what can I do to repair the damage?

Do you see a message to go into your scsi controller and configure the Raid? You need to force the raid to rebuild that drive... if raid 5 is fault tolerant, remember its always best with servers to not touch if you dont have to

Im not sure if I started this thread in the correct location so if it needs to be moved please do so.

My server at the house has Windows 2003 server, I have IIS installed and have one of my web pages hosted behind my Linksys wireless router/firewall. My server has a fixed IP address and the router has the IP address open with port 80. I do not have a static IP address. However, Dynsite and Zone Edit take care of that and the web site works fine. Now the issue, I have a total of four web sites to host, IIS gives me an IP address error when I try to start one of the other web sites.
It has to be something silly im missing.

Windows solution permanent? You must be new to computers. A system restore was was a bit drastic for a DNS problem. Next time post the problem first.

Hello All-Emails have been sent to numerous, if not all, of the addresses in my address book belonging to [email protected] to protect from spambots. Of course, they do not appear in my "sent" folder or elsewhere. I only know of this from the responses I get from recipients. This would have been a simple problem I thought, until I was unable to discover the cause.I am running Windows XP SP3, have two computers on the network typically, and have a number of email accounts. Four email accounts are sbcglobal.net accounts, and only one has been utilized to issue spam/viruses and so forth. This is done through a hypertext link with no message attached.On these two machines Norton 360 runs at start up. Scans reveal no malware. After these messages began being sent as if from [email protected] I did the following:Ran an additional Norton comprehensive scan. Nothing was found.Ran Malawarebytes' Anti-Malware full system scan on both machines. Nothing was found.Ran IObit Security 360 on both machines. Nothing was found.All secuirty programs were updated as of today's date. Then I ran the Microsoft Malicious Software Tool, and again nothing was found on either machine.I have run HiJack This and saved the results to Notepad. I am willing to share that information if would be of use to someone on this forum.

The office is running Windows 2000 server and MS Exchange server with approx. 6 machines connected. When anybody in the office e-mails, the recipient is getting a different looking e-mail address than the one it is coming from. For example, if [email protected] sends an e-mail the recipient sees the e-mail coming from [email protected]. When the recipient tries to reply to the e-mail they get a "non-deliverable" message. What could be the cause of this and why would it be happening to everybody in the office at the same time? Thanks.

Look at your user settings in Active Directory. Generally, email accounts are the same as the user name unless you set it up manually or set up a policy that creates email accounts in the format you mentioned.

Hey all, got a stumper that needs fresh ideas!

At work this afternoon our proxy server stopped providing internet and email access.

End users can't connect to their email because they get a POP3 error, one of the protocols that the proxy server provides. Same thing with their internet access - "proxy server is refusing connections".

The network itself is fine - I can ping every segment (every router, every hub, every switch) and the proxy server itself. The proxy can also be bypassed - allowing internet access. Not a feasible solution though.

The email services are all running. Both network cards are sending and receiving. The proxy server itself is connected to the internet. Email is being collected, run through our filters, and supposedly sent on its way. On the surface, everything seems to be fine....Yet no end user going through the proxy can get outside onto the internet or access the server's email portion.

Right now we're running a virus scan which will take hours to finish. Meanwhile, my shift ended and I went home - My manager can deal with it now.

I don't suspect it to be a virus or anything running in the background. Theres nothing fishy in the running processes and CPU and memory utilization appears normal. I was about to start powercycling network devices between the proxy and the rest of the network, but that seemed like a bad idea.
