Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and open the file called 'hosts' with notepad. Scroll to the bottom and add the line: 'IP Address' 'hostname' for example: 192.168.1.20 Nasdrive Then go to file and save. You will then be able to go to 192.168.1.20 using the word Nasdrive instead from that machine. This change is machine specific. You will need to do ...

Addresses that use words aren't "IPs" or "IP addresses". (An IPv4 address is four-byte and usually written as four decimal numbers; an IPv6 address as 16 bytes usually written in hexadecimal.) They might be called hostnames or domain names (it varies; "domain name" kinda implies that it's accessible globally, not just within your local network). On the ...

Did you set up DNS addresses? If you run DHCP, DNS is configured automatically, but when you run with static IP's, it's not. You can configure DNS by adding the following below the iface eth0 inet static portion of the /etc/network/interfaces file: dns-nameservers 10.100.0.11 10.100.2.11 dns-search int.mtak.nl Replace the IP addresses with your network's ...

DNS is one of many factors when it comes to Internet speed. It's possible that flushing DNS can have some improvement, but it won't be much. If anything, it'll clear out obsolete entries if it hasn't been done in a while and caching is interfering with something, but clearing the cache can actually lower overall speeds (slightly) by requiring new DNS lookups ...

There are several ways you can go at this: You could install a browser plugin which allows you to see all the HTTP traffic that is sent. Firebug has this option ("Net" tab). You could use a packet sniffer like Wireshark to capture all the raw TCP data.

The -65548 error refers to name conflicts. If you look at the mDNSResponder source, you can see that this error indicates that the name is already registered. I would check to see if you have more than one printer queue on the network with that name that could be colliding. Also make sure you're not running more than one multicast dns service on the system ...

Well, if you are all using the same network, he can probably sniff your packets, which means that he/she can see all the traffic coming from and going towards your computer (your wireless card to be more precise). This is pretty much unavoidable. What you can do, is to visit https version of sites, since then he/she can only see what site are you visiting, ...

There's nothing (that I'm aware of) that would restrict you from using any Microsoft technologies, platforms or components in your home network just so long as you have the proper licensing. If you want the control that Active Directory and Group Policies give you then create an Active Directory domain and proceed accordingly. The line that separates ...

In most situations: No, it won't. If you're connected by LAN and simply plug in both interfaces, even if you manage to tell the NAS to send data over both it will not grant you a speed boost. The simple question is: what is the limiting element? As mentioned in comment, often the HDD is it. Sometimes the transfer rate of the connection (not really on a lan, ...

Using two network interfaces in a link aggregation group (LAG) increases performance and reliability. However, it cannot increase the bandwidth for a single conversation. It is designed to increase bandwidth when multiple clients are simultaneously accessing the same system. If you connected both ports to your network, you could lose one of the physical ...

As far as know, it is not possible to join 2 wireless LAN networks with one adapter. Maybe the best solution would be to buy a second cheap WLAN adapter for laptop 2. Then you can bridge the connection to adapter1 and thus laptop one. If you want laptop 2 to be a real access point (which is nice and gets rid off some address problems and more) i can ...

I hope you find this helpful, I got it from here bridge does not forward all traffic through the bridge cause: Network bridges will not forward all traffic across the bridge. By definition, a bridge will forward broadcast traffic. Other network traffic is only forwarded when the target (MAC address) is on the the other side of the traffic; if the MAC ...

No sure if it will solve the problem, but have you tried opening /etc/sysctl.conf and setting: net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1 You might need to restart network to reload the new configuration: service network restart

The best way would be to use the firefox inspector. Open the page, press F12 then choose Network or Ctrl-Shift-Q to start the Network inspector directly. Then reload the page to see all of the network requests made, times, etc. Far more detail than you likely need. If you want a lower-level command-line display, you'll want to look into netstat. You can ...

I think the OP is a bit confused here. I'm not berating his intelligence, and whilst I agree with everyone else here, I must tell the OP, everything that you want to do at home you can do, as long as you remember that switching to linux or any other server class OS for that matter, for uses that your describing require very granular research, and there are ...

Yes, it always bridges between its LAN ports and wireless. So turn its DHCP server off and plug one of its LAN ports into your existing Ethernet LAN (e.g. one of the LAN ports of your upstream router), and it'll do what you need. I RTFM'd for you and the User Manual tells you how to do this step by step under the heading "Router to router configuration".

sFTP provides FTP like functionality over the top of SSH. If sFTP does what you want, that would be the prefered option. Plain FTP does not use encryption and is less secure than sFTP. Unless you specifically need an FTP server for what you are doing, I'd recommend you stick with sFTP. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSH_File_Transfer_Protocol for further ...

So, here is what you can do to troubleshoot the issue..

Sounds like you have a static IP assign but not actually a dedicated IP. In cases where the web server needs to answer for multiple sites on the same IP address and port they will use host name binding, where the right site is chosen based on the requested host name. Hitting a server setup like this by IP will usually either lead to the default site on ...

As there are many settings that could influence the quality of VoIP, I recommend comparing all settings with those listed in the article : How to configure your router for blazing speeds. You should especially disable all unnecessary WiFi modes and protocols, for example "b+g WiFi mode" if you only have "n" devices, or 5GHz if you only have 2.4 GHz devices. ...

A better issue report is #14144 Interface eth1 up and down continuously. It was closed as "defect (not_a_bug)" with the following message : This ticket can be closed. I have tried to repeat the PPPoE connection setup command by hand and noticed that timeout waiting for PADO packet appeared after about 5 connection failures. Then I waited for ...

So you have 2 broadband lines - it means you have 2 WAN ports. When you enable load balancing on two or more WAN ports IP packets generated with your applications will pass through the first available WAN port, or using Round Robin algorithm, or may be more complicated algorithm supported by hardware and firmware of your load balancer. That means sometimes ...

The TCP protocol expects packets to arrive in sequential order. If you use two or more WAN interfaces, then it is possible that packets will arrive on the far end out of order. This can cause the overall throughput to drop due to the recovery action that will then be unnecessarily taken by the receiver. In your case, it would for example mean that if you ...

With respect to IPv4: A TCP connection (not UDP, not Multicast, etc) upon which sessions applications establish to conduct transactions and present content is between one and only one source IP:port, and one and only one destination IP:port. The protocol does not permit one-to-many connections for a single session, as far as the public Internet is ...

This is really a matter of convention rather than a technical consideration these days, as classful addresses were phased out in 1993. So the notion of "classful" vs "classless" subnetting doesn't really come up any more, except as a convienience. People will generally only use "class b" as easy way to convey a 16bit network address. No one thinks of ...

Remove the port number from your entry The hosts file only resolves an ip address to a host or an alias of a host. Name resolution does not know or care about ports. Only the browser application cares about the port number. You can then use http://mytool.com:8080/myapp to access the site. If the remote server was running on port 80 you could eliminate the ...

Go to the network and sharing center, then click on the icon besides the work Network 3. EDIT: It seemed logical this method would still work in Windows 8, but unfortunately it doesn't. The other solution is the one that will work.
