  1. I've been trying to Activate Terminal Services Licensing over the internet but I'm not receiving the confirmation email from Microsoft with the required registration key. Anyone know if Microsoft has stopped allowing people to activate over the Internet? I know that Windows 2000 is in its Extended Support Period but I managed to activate last year without any problems.
  2. I've got two static public IP addresses I assigned the first static IP to a Netgear DG834G and disabled NAT and DHCP. I assigned the second static IP to a Netgear FVS318v3. I couldn't get the FVS318v3 to access the internet but then I realised that the LAN side of the DG834G still had a local IP address even though NAT was disabled. I don't have a third static IP address so I also set this to the first static IP. Now the DG834G has the internet IP and the LAN IP both configured using the first public IP which I would guess is an IP conflict but it works. Now the Netgear FVS318v3 can access the internet. However, although the first static IP can be accessed from the internet, the second static IP cant (FVS318v3). How can I get the FVS318v3 to access the internet? Do I need to buy a different modem to replace the Netgear DG834G which doesn't have this LAN address when I disable NAT? Please help
  3. Surely its still a binary backup and prone to the same kind of data corruption?
  4. The company database gets backed up each day using NTBACKUP. A consultant checked out my system and said the following NTBACKUP is based on backupexec which is one of the leading backup solutions so surely it can be trusted?
  5. I've used the "Run only allowed Windows applications" feature in Windows 2000 Server's Group Policy When somebody logs onto Windows XP for the first time, the classic theme is activated and the quick launch doesn't work. What files are run at first logon to create the XP theme and the quick launch toolbar? I need to add them to the "Run only allowed Windows applications" list. I'm able to select manually select the XP theme so it isn't so much of a problem. However, if I try to enable quick launch, I get a message saying "cannot create toolbar". I added IE4UINIT.EXE to the list of allowed applications and now I’m able to select quick launch but it doesn’t appear. All the profiles that were created before the change to group policy are ok. It’s only new profiles. I know there’s lots of articles about fixing the Quick Launch toolbar but I don’t want to keep having to fix it every time somebody logs onto a computer for the first time.
  6. I need to re-install Windows XP on 80 computers and I'm getting really annoyed with having to spend 10 minutes on the Windows Activation hotline each time while they ask such questions as: Did you buy your computer with windows pre-installed? How many computers are you using with that product key? Have you changed more than two pieces of hardware? Have you changed the motherboard? Its even more anoying when I have to speak to somebody and I have to try and convince them that I'm not doing anything illegal. Its driving me insane I cant take much more of this. Every computer is legal and has its own COA sticker. The last company I worked for had a VLK so I didn't have to go through all this. I know it would be illegal to use the VLK and CD from my previous job, but if we got investigated by somebody from Microsoft, would they be bothered about it?
  7. I didn't realize that option existed in Group Policy thanks very much
  8. The main server is running Debian Linux and all the workstations are running Windows XP Pro. The guy who set it up used POLEDIT.EXE (from win98) to create an Allowed Software List to restrict which executables can run on each computer. This he said, prevents any viruses from running. I'm not sure if thats true or not? We're thinking about ditching Linux and moving to Windows 2000 Server or Server 2003. What's the best way to have an allowed software list on a Windows Server? I've looked at group policy but I can find any options in there. Maybe there's a way we could continue using POLEDIT.EXE? I know its been designed for Windows 98 but this guy somehow managed to get it to work with XP over a network with some function in Linux.
  9. Oh yeah I meant to have posted editnews.php at the time but must have forgot. With errors turned on, I get: Notice: Undefined index: submit in H:\xampplite\htdocs\pages\news\editNews.php on line 49 when I try and edit the page and press submit, I get: Notice: Undefined index: cmd in H:\xampplite\htdocs\pages\news\editNews.php on line 22 <? include ('../../inc/config.php'); if($_GET["cmd"]=="edit" || $_POST["cmd"]=="edit") { if (!isset($_POST["submit"])) { $id = $_GET["id"]; $sql = "SELECT * FROM news WHERE id=$id"; $result = mysql_query($sql); $myrow = mysql_fetch_array($result); ?> <form action="editNews.php" method="post"> <input type=hidden name="id" value="<?php echo $myrow["id"] ?>"> Name:<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="name" VALUE="<?php echo $myrow["name"] ?>" SIZE=30><br> Start_date:<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="start_date" VALUE="<?php echo $myrow["start_date"] ?>" SIZE=30><br> Headline:<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="headline" VALUE="<?php echo $myrow["headline"] ?>" SIZE=30><br> Article:<TEXTAREA NAME="article" ROWS=10 COLS=30><? echo $myrow["article"] ?></TEXTAREA><br> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="edit"> <input type="submit" name="submit" value="submit"> </form> <? }?> <? if ($_POST["submit"]) { $id = $_POST["id"]; $name = $_POST["name"]; $start_date = $_POST["start_date"]; $headline = $_POST["headline"]; $article = $_POST["article"]; $sql = "UPDATE news SET name = '".$_POST['name']."', start_date = '".$start_date."', headline = '".$headline."', article = '".$article."'

  10. Hi can anyone help me? If I turn on error reporting, I get: Notice: Undefined index: submit in H:\xampplite\htdocs\pages\news\editNews.php on line 48 When I make my changes and click submit, I get: Notice: Undefined index: cmd in H:\xampplite\htdocs\pages\news\editNews.php on line 21 Notice: Undefined index: id in H:\xampplite\htdocs\pages\news\editNews.php on line 62
  11. I've just tested my website using Firefox and I get the following error message when I try to log in: Warning: Unknown: Your script possibly relies on a session side-effect which existed until PHP 4.2.3. Please be advised that the session extension does not consider global variables as a source of data, unless register_globals is enabled. You can disable this functionality and this warning by setting session.bug_compat_42 or session.bug_compat_warn to off, respectively. in Unknown on line 0 If I press "back" and refresh the page, I'm logged in. Everything works properly in IE6. Please please please can anyone help? Here's my login code: <? session_start("sesh"); $log_u = trim($_POST['username']); $log_p = trim($_POST['password']); if( !empty($log_u) && !empty($log_p) ) { $login_u = trim($log_u); $login_p = trim(md5($log_p)); include ('inc/config.php'); $q = "SELECT * FROM staff WHERE username = '$login_u' AND password = '$login_p'"; $r = mysql_query($q); if (mysql_num_rows($r) == 1) { while ( $row = mysql_fetch_array($r) ) { $first_name = $row['first_name']; $last_name = $row['last_name']; $username = $row['username']; $staff_id = $row['id']; $permission_id = $row['permission_id']; $permission_to_book_rooms = $row['permission_to_book_rooms']; $room_booking_admin = $row['room_booking_admin']; $is_manager = $row['is_manager']; $password = $row['password']; $email = $row['email']; $full_name = $first_name ."

  12. Sorry mad_raven you posted while I was replying to MtK so I've only just read your reply. I tried your code and it works Thank you so much. Quick question, why did it work before in my old version of XAMPP? Is it due to modifications with the PHP scripting language?
  13. No it says "Updated Information Ok". However, when I go back to the main page, the entry I edited has empty fields.
  14. I've got website running happily using XAMPP 1.4.15 However, I desperately want to upgrade to the latest XAMP 1.6.1 The problem I'm having after the upgrade is with a php page that lets me edit users. I can add users ok but if I try to edit them, all the cells in that row end up empty. There's no error message which makes it difficult to diagnose. At first, I thought the reason was due to the new XAMPP having MySQL 5.0.37. I upgraded XAMPP 1.4.15 to MySQL 5.0.37 and it still worked perfectly. There's something in XAMP 1.6.1 which isn't compatible with my php code. I even tried XAMP 1.6.1 with PHP 4.4.6 but I still had the same problem. Please help I've attached the PHP code + MySQL database in case anyone would be so kind as to take a look at it. files2.zip
  15. Yeah I bought a Pioneer stereo back in 1996. In the shop it said it was 100 Watts PMPO and the manual said it was 25 Watts RMS. I saw another shop selling it as 50 Watts MPO. Its just different ways of measuring the power outage.
  16. Like all service packs, SP5 is cumulative so you don't need SP4. You do know that there's an SP5.1 which includes a lot of the 2006 hotfixes?
  17. Please, either buy the more expensive server edition of kaspersky or use an alternative. Discussion about circumventing workstation software so it runs on a server is theft. MSFN is an above board discussion board (no pun intended)!!!
  18. RAID 1 is the slowest RAID because the server has to read/write to two drives at the same time, which doubles the work load. If you access a 1Mb file in a two drive RAID 1 set up, the server will access the same file from both drives, meaning 2Mb will be read in total (in case a drive dies during the process). In a RAID 0 set up with two drives, if you open the same 1Mb file, 512Kb will be read from one drive and the other 512Kb will be read from the other. although this system is very high in performance, all data will be lost if just one drive fails. If you've only got 20 people though, you don't really have to worry about the performance hit as I doubt anyone would notice. Especially with a fast 300Gb drive. It depends really, if all 20 people access large PST files stored on the server using Outlook at the same time then there would probably be a slowdown. Or if you're running 2003 server and your making regular shadow copy's while everyone has a lot of files open then they might notice a slowdown. Anyway, to answer your question, RAID 5 would be a good choice. RAID 5 is a bit like RAID 0 except it uses an extra drive for parity. To clarify, if you access your 1Mb file, 512Kb will be read from one and 512Kb from the other - just like RAID 0. This is very fast. If you save a 1Mb file however, it will be written in strips across across the drives with the parity bits. These extra parity bits impact performance meaning it will write faster than RAID 1 but slower than RAID 0.
  19. Are you talking about a home computer or a company file server? If it's a file server in high demand then RAID 1 will degrade performance. I use 3 HDs in RAID 5 on the main file server at work.
  20. A mirrored hard drive wont prevent any of the following: Virus Infection Data Corruption Accidental Deletion Theft Fire Flood Power Surge Mirroring is good in the event of HD failure as an addition to your normal backup routine, not as a replacement. I use a combination of Ghost, DVD burner and a network drive which I copy files to.
  21. I've got a laptop with 32Mb ram so I want to multiboot it so I can optimize each windows for dedicated tasks. First I installed Windows 98 Then I set BootGUI=0 in Msdos.sys so it booted to DOS I came up with the idea of copying Windows and Program Files into a directory called Vanilla which will be the default Windows install. Then I wanted to strip Windows using 98lite to make it perform faster. I wrote a menu for Autoexec.bat which gives you a choice of which OS to boot to. If you select 'Vanilla', it performs the attrib -s -h c: /s command and then moves Windows and Program Files from C:\OS_Store\Vanilla\ into the root of C:\ and loads it using WIN. If you select '98lite' it moves Windows and Program Files from C:\OS_Store\98lite\*.* into the root of C:\ and loads it using WIN (obviously it would move whichever OS was in the root before it moved the one you chosen). I was also going to have an Unofficial Service Pack install, a Revolutions Pack install and a Mindows install. Of course, I was unsuccessful in moving Windows because DOS doesn't support more than 8+3 filenames. I then thought about searching for a DOS alternative which supports longer filenames but I'm bound to run into more problems. I know there are lots of multi boot solutions but I would like to hear your thoughts. EDIT Ive just had an idea, I could move the program files path to windows\program files. Next, connect my laptops harddrive to my desktop computer using a 2.5inch to 3.5inch adaptor. Now, using my desktop os i can make a copy of windows and call it vanilla. Now when I put the harddrive back into my laptop I can boot to either OS by renaming an OS to windows. I can have a boot menu for this with unlimited choices of windows install. Im sure at least one of you will find a flaw in my latest idea and tell me it wont work...

    nLite on USB

    1. Copy the nlited folder to your flash disk 2. Boot to a DOS floppy disk or a Windows 9x CD or you could even make you USB disk bootable using a free utility from HP. 3. At the DOS prompt, run SMARTDRV.EXE (you will have to search google for smartdrive) 4. browse to the i386 folder of your usb disk and type NTSETUP
  23. If you insist on not formating and reinstalling (which I recommend): 1. Create a new Administrator account and log in as that name. Next, delete everything in C:\Documents and Settings\ except for the account you just logged in as, All Users, Default User. 2. Have a look in the root of C: to make sure nothings been saved in there. Have a look in any folders that have been created as well. Have a look in any other partitions you have as well. 3. Have a look in C:\WINNT for TMP files. If word or excel etc crashes, the file you were working on gets dumped there with the TMP extention. 4. What software package do you do your work in? If you use Office, click Start | Search | For Files or Folders... and search for *.doc, *.pub, *.xls, *.pst etc. Or if you use Open Office, search for those files with those extentions like *.odt for a writer file etc. 5. Before you give your computer away, make sure you dont leave a CD or a floppy disk in the computer containing your data. Also, open up your computer to make sure no disks or peices of paper are inside. I've found floppy disks lying inside a computer before. Its impossible to be 100% sure of deleting everything. You might have saved sensitive data in a text documents in C:\WINNT or somebody may have opened up an INI file and saved some sensitive infomation (unlikely, but possible) and you cant delete all INI files. If you do steps 1 to 5, theres a chance you would have deleted everything. To be 100% sure however, you need to format.
  24. I've been using YaBB for three years now and I'm very please with it.
