  2. Hi ppl... Have come across a problem that wasn't apparent until now... When we first upgraded our PC's to Xp, we had a XP Corporate Edition CD which we used on all the existing PCs and the some newer ones. Since then everything was fine and has been for ages. Some of out machines are stand-alone as they are controllers for Industrial machines, and cannot risk the machines crashing or getting hijacked by a virus etc. But recently we have had our IT upgraded and now have these machines networked but behind a hardware firewall, and via a software firewall on a new Terminal server. Basically, we can connect to the terminal server and use our software to program the machines the other side of the firewall. This means NONE of the pcs behing the HW+SW firewall can access the internet, and only designated machines can conect to the TS. But it has now come to my attention, that all the office machines and the 2k servers all are upgrading the auto updates ok, but the brand new machines that have been supplied with XP pro SP2 will not run our software to control the machines, so we currently have our new pc's collecting dust. The question is: All the current machines we have cannot connect to the internet 24-7. We dont use the internet much, so we dial-up as and when. Any updates i download at home on my broadband and bung on my server for the network to update from (SUS). Since the only XP cd supplied with the pc's is a Pro disk with SP2, and the only disc i have is an XP Pro CD, is there any way to stop the new machines connecting to the internet for authentication? as i havent got time to re-load all the PC's and take them home to activate them, and upgrade them?! And the supplier of the original PC's does not have the CD that was used on the old pc's Thanks
  3. Hello people... I have come across an issue and need some help. I am writing a WEB site which uses frames, which i personaly like because of ease of use. However, i have been told that to get a better placement on search engines i should move away from frames and re-write every page - which i dont really want to do. Is there a way to link all the framed pages so that if you click a link from a search engine, the whole site will work? i.e the frameset is loaded? If not, what would be the best way of getting around this? Many thanks. Mad

  5. Hi everyone... I am looking into setting up a shoutcast server, but dont really know much about it. I know the basics and how to connect but what do i need to make my own? i am already running a web server and would like to install some kind of shoutcast server. But this is where i am stuck... Is there a minimum spec for shoutcast to run on? do i need a licence? is shoutcast free? and is it easy to setup? lots of q's... Cheers in advance !!
  6. Add some code into your 1st page which will open a new window with your background tunes playing, then all you need in this window is a "music off" button for people looking at your site if they want to turn the sound off... Like a mini JukeBox!
  7. The only way to do this is with either PCanywhere, or VNC. But you will need to install a copy onto both machines. Why cant you plug a screen into the server??
  8. In the routers config, firstly, can you password the config page? 2ndly loom for the port redirection table. You should be able to configure the router to use a different port - other than 80 which is the web site. Then set it to 82 for example. so when the port redirection is setup, anyone looking at the router address can be redirected to a web server. Then to access the router via your web browser, type in the ip address followed by ":82" if 82 was the configured port number. Hope this helps.
  9. If we compile this.... .... does it turn into XP ???
  10. Have you been made an offer from her? As for an hourly rate... it seems a good idea except that if she charges a flat rate, and its a longer job than expected, then you may end up charging more than the price already paid... So i can see 2 options. Either she changes the pricing to her customers to an hourly fee, or you have to take a percentage. - after all you are the customer contact and if you charge too much, then she wont be able to give you the work... But dont forget that she is paying for both your time, your expenses, and your expertise...
  11. I am in the uk and use Freeola. I have been using them for about 5 years, and have never had a problem. except when i setup my broadband router, but they talked me through it... Once i had all the settings correct, it has been fine. However, i am now moving and have found out that because the broadband isn't actually supplied by Freeola, when i move i have to disconnect my b/band and then pay an actvation charge all over again !!! Bit annoying but i can live with that, cos there service is excellent. May even upgrade the speed when i reconnect as the prices have just changed!!!

  20. SP4 is the last pack for win2k.. So ensure you keep the machine up to date with the MS updates!
  21. Hmm... Duplicate post? I asked this question some 6 months ago !
  22. The whole point of this exersie, is that i have 5 different sites, whom all bought there own hardware from either Dell, Siemens, and laptops from toshiba, dell, HP and Acer. So what i need is to build a pc with no specific hardware drivers for each pc, but enough to start the pc into 2k and run the CD drive to load the correct hardware drivers. Each site keeps there hardware driver cd's so i dont need to carry them. My aim is to carry a Bootable CD/DVD with an image containing: Win2k, Office2k, MSN Messenger, and other programs we use, and the various printer drivers. At the moment i need to carry win2k vlk, office 2k pro, the cd with our software on it, and then i need to find the driver disks on site for each pc. Then when i get either a new pc, or have to rebuild an existing one, all i need to do is run the disc and install the system to a bootable basic state, then install the hardware drivers for the pc, and configure its network details. The login scripts will do the rest, but the pc will be useable with only 2 discs ! Using SYSPREP defeats the point of the disc. I need the VLK's intact. All the PC's support ACPI, they all are simular spec. Its just the mainboard and graphics cards that vary. We use a few different style of printers, but i dont mind installing them on-site. RIS could work, but i dont know much about it. I have Ghost installed on the server and this works well across the main network, but down an isdn line it is too slow. Thanks for the help ppl!
  23. They are the american equivelent to the British MI5 and MI6 organisations. British MI5 website There is no website for the MI6 as they are "British Secret Service" which is famous because of James Bond.... They are a listening, decoding and general nosey parkers!!! Their job is to listen to all radio, telephone and comunications looking for key words and then will react if they find something... It is reported that they knew about 9-11 before the begining of the month but did nothing! i don't know how true this is... Watch "Enemy of the State" with Will smith... he has a "Small" problem with the NSA!! and this will explain it best !! LOL
  24. Imagine your desktop... now look at the current size, and weight, and heat gerated by the current 3.xx GHz processors... .... If there is 8 in 1 case... How much cooling is gonna be needed ! I still want one tho.... Multi player games on the same pc with diferent interface and screen for each player!! I like the idea of that ! A new kind of VR!
