  1. It seems to be a problem now with the website itself, which runs on DotNetNuke. When I enter the URL in the address bar of my browser, it forwards me to the hostname, as written above. When I enter the URL\test.txt in the address bar of my browser, it does not forward me to the hostname, but stays on the URL entered and shows me the text file. In other words, the webserver works fine now, but the website itself is the problem. I'll forward it to the webdeveloper and see what he comes up with.
  2. While I was writing my last message, something has changed drastically... On the webserver the website was all of a sudden stopped. When restarting the website I got the error message: "the format of the specified network name is not valid". I changed the ListenOnlySomethingSomething as suggested somewhere on the Microsoft website by removing an invalid IP address and now when I try to access the website from home for example via its IP address, it finds the server... but then tries to forward me to http://hostnameofserver... which obviously cannot be found on the internet! What is causing th
  3. Its been a while... What I've done thus far... I've placed the server back in its rack, but that didn't solve the issue. I have updated the firmware of our router, which didn't solve it either. I've changed everything possible on the router again and again to get the website working, but nothing I tried helped a bit. Then I had an idea! We have a Windows Home Server on our network via DHCP at current which is hooked up to be configured and which will be moved to another one of our locations, a small one. I changed the port forwarding of port 80 on our router to the IP address of this Windows
  4. Thank you very much for your help MrJinje Yes, it is enabled. I understand what you mean. Our router can be configured via a terminal and via a web interface, but you cannot change the order in access lists, so that won't be the issue. I have thought of something silly which might be the cause of the problem and that is that the web server has been taken out of its rack and placed in a different room for configuring the website itself, testing, et cetera, all third party work by the way. The web server hasn't been placed back in its rack yet. I'm not suggesting that it could be a routing is
  5. Yes, I could set up a VPN, but the website needs to be publically accessable When you say you are trying to connect from home, what do you mean, are you typing in it's internal IP address, the IP address of your remote router or something else ? When I wrote from home, I mean any location besides at work, so at home, a friend's place, et cetera. We have one router facing the internet, a DrayTek Vigor3300. Of course I don't use the internal IP address from another location, that would not work We have a block of IP addresses. Our router IP address forwards port 80 to the web server for exam
  6. I wish I had one lying around I must have a HP mouse lying around somewhere, I'll try with that one.
  7. Default motherboard settings for both motherboards didn't work. I have enabled legacy USB devices for example in the BIOS of both motherboards as well, but that didn't do the trick either.
  8. A while ago I started building a HTPC with a 32-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium. My build first used an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard. During the setup process already, the simple Logitech keyboard which I had connected via USB worked fine, but the simple Logitech mouse which was also connected via USB didn't work. Once the setup process had finished, the USB mouse refused to work. Unplugging the mouse and connecting it again didn't solve the issue. I get an error message that the USB device it not working properly. Using a different USB port didn't solve the issue either. I have tried a dif
  9. This is driving me nuts I have set up a web server and it is working fine within our own network. When I try to access the website from home for example, it does not work and I receive the error "cannot display the webpage". I have no idea where to look and what the problem could be and I hope that someone here can be of help, before I throw the web server out of the window The website is running on IIS 6.0 on Windows Server 2003 Web Edition. The website is based on DotNetNuke, a CMS. When I enter the servername or its internal IP address in Internet Explorer, the website shows fine. On our
  10. I have asked this question elsewhere as well, but thus far no one has been able to answer my question. I hope someone here will be able to though. Windows 7 Ultimate allows you to change the installed language once you have finished installing Windows 7 Ultimate. You can download various language packs from Windows Update to change your language into Dutch, German, Danish, et cetera. My question is not about the languages which you can change your installation of Windows 7 Ultimate into once you have installed it, but about the language which is used during the setup process. For example, if I
  11. What do you mean by "messed up pretty bad"? I don't see anything wrong with the script. I probably can't read documentation at all, or something like it. Nevermind, I have to done everything by hand again. Sigh. SED might not be a great tool, but there aren't many tools around which can do the job. SED does its work.
  12. I'd stick with a single path, and don't play with mirroring ports or vlans or any of the other managed switch features until you know what they're for. Pretend it's an unmanaged switch for now But even if we don't mirror any LAN port, we could still connect the managed switch to 2 LAN ports of the router... Would this be useful?
  13. Wouldn't it be wise to connect the managed 1 Gbit switch to several ports on the router, for example two ports? Is this possible at all, I wonder? And if it's possible, wouldn't this increase the maximum throughput from the managed 1 Gbit switch to the internet? Like below. Internet | | Router | | | | Managed 1 Gbit Switch On the router it's possible to mirror ports. The rout
  14. Will do. Thanks to both of you for the advice, it's much appreciated!
  15. Thank you very much for your reply! It's only a small office. All machines are located in the same single floor building. We have one 19" rack in which we have our router, switches and servers. This 19" rack is really the core of our network. Good thing that I asked then, because we believed that connecting each switch to the other switches would be a good thing... Thank you for clearing that up! But what I'm wondering is, our internet facing router has four 100 Mbit LAN ports, do we connect all switches to the router directly, or should we connect only the managed 1 Gbit switch to the rout
