    in reply to: wait or pause with .bat scripts #282082

    Re: wait or pause with .bat scripts

    you actually have to keep the 1.1.1.1 ip address in there as that will always be an invalid IP. The 30000 is the delay in waiting for a response.

    in reply to: wireless question #282081

    Re: wireless question

    Since you already have a router you need just the access point, and then a wireless card/NIC on the other winXP machine in the other building. As far as a 802.11g or a you definitely want ‘g’ as it has the greatest range. If your distance is greater then the spec, don’t worry get one of these :mrgreen:

    Re: wait or pause with .bat scripts

    I had a similar issue when I had a logon script in a domain, plus many startup programs, that all fired at logon. The computers where getting bogged down, so I added this…

    PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 30000 >NUL

    believe it or not this works and as far as i can tell is the only way too! Change the 30000 for longer or shorter ‘pauses’.

    Re: linux on win 98se

    If you just want to play with Linux, use a live cd. That’s where Linux boots entirely from a CD, without touching the existing OS, on your good machine. Take out the CD, reboot, and you back to windows. However, if you ever want to save stuff under linux, then this not the way to go.

    in reply to: Moving Exchange Server to new Building #282078

    Re: Moving Exchange Server to new Building

    Also you can sign up for a Mail rescue type service that will hold you email till your server is back up. They usually hold it for a week or two. It is good to have anyway, just is case of a serious issue with your email server.
    They set it up very similar to what Jeremy said….
    I happen to use mail rescue from DNS Park. Always worked perfectly, once when we moved buildings, and once, well, it was bad.

    :???: Please explain.

    JeremyW:
    If you think about it, when a dns request is made from inside the network to mail.company123.com, DNS will respond with his public IP address. However from inside the network he cannot connect to the external port on his router because he is inside, behind the same router. The solution is well… I won’t say yet as I dont want to confuse him.

    The few times that mail.company123.com has worked (from inside) he got very strange results, it is not supposed to work:grin:

    By the way, when testing OWA from the Internet, would I get different results if I used an internal PC from my LAN as compared to using a PC somewhere else not on the LAN (probably from home or another Internet connection)??

    Thanks!

    In general when you are inside the network and you try mail.company123.com, it will not resolve to your exchange server (there are ways around this………..later)
    What you need to do is start working and testing with IP address only. Again only IP addresses. Then later we can use domains. This will rule out and DNS problems and the like.
    So
    From inside the network type 192.168.1.11/exchange
    from outside the network type 98.765.43.21/exchange
    Post your results

    Also just to be sure you understand, company123.local and company123.com are not related even though they sound like they should be, so when you say that you can reach company123.local from outside the network we all say hmmmmmm….:confused:

    BTW nice screen shots this may end up as a tutorial:grin:

    Re: Exchange 2003. New users are not appearing in the global address book

    If you are copying users make sure the first checkbox (as seen bellow) is not checked on the first user that you copied, all subsequent users

    Re: Unable to print mail in Outlook 2003

    when you read emails are you using Word to read them. To check go to tools-> options-> then the third tab, mail format. The window will be similar to the screen shot below. is the second check-box checked or unchecked?

    in reply to: cannot format disk before installing xp #282070

    Re: cannot format disk before installing xp

    Just a quick explanation regarding installing and formatting. Formatting prepares the HD from use. Installing xp is done on top of an already formatted HD, However during installation you will see an option to format, that really is just a convenience to you, and not related to the installation. Hope that helps.

    in reply to: cannot format disk before installing xp #282069

    Re: cannot format disk before installing xp

    First, I hope you have a seagate brand HD.
    Since you already finished that operation you know that your HD is completely blank (that was probably intentional :wink:)
    Now when you go to install XP there will be, all these blue screens with different options. Choose accordingly, for a complete reinstall. when you get to the formatting question, format it (NTFS) but not the quick format. This will take a long time, depending on the capacity of your drive, go have a coffee.
    Let us know.

    Re: cannot format disk before installing xp

    when you formated it the first time what file system did you use (NTFS, FAT32, FAT, etc…)?
    Also make sure you understand what it means to format your HD, as you dont really need to do it twice. (Hint: it is not the same as reinstalling XP Pro)

    in reply to: OWA access from internet #282067

    Re: OWA access from internet

    I would not go messing with the default permissions in IIS for OWA. I think you have (or did have) OWA set up correctly, but you issue is more related with your router/firewall.

    Quote:
    I enabled port forwarding on my router to my server 192.168.1.11 (port 80 and 443).

    I have this funny feeling that something is not quite right on your router. Do a self port scan here using ShieldsUP!. Double check your IP addresses.

    Dont use a URL address just yet, use the ip address of your mailserver. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/exchange
    (forget about the web server for a while).

    in reply to: Outlook signatures HTML/Plain text #282064

    Re: Outlook signatures HTML/Plain text

    First I would make a signature that includes both HTML and plain text, kinda mixed one in the other, if you know what i mean, so that the same signature will be meaningful either way.
    Then if you right click on the email address of the the contact, select outlook properties, and then change the dropdown as pictured below to send plain text only.

    I have no real way of testing this but i hope it helps.

    Re: Change ID key – Windows xp pro+sp1

    I would try this

    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/purchase/UpdateInstructions.aspx

    however i am not sure that it will work across different variations of windows if you have Corporate, OEM, Dell OEM, HP OEM, etc….but give it a try

    The link above is from MS so I would be more comfortable using it.

    Re: Outlook problem is driving me nuts! (Free beer if you solve LOL)

    check the delegates tab (the last one under tools -> options) for that user. See if he has delegated meeting requests to another user/users

    Re: IE Error: Textboxes on every website are read only

    Go to internet options-> advanced-> clear the check box that is highlighted in the attached image then restart IE.
    It wont solve the bigger issue, but might lead you in the right direction.

    Hello,
    I am new here but noticed that you posted this issue and your followup in the SBS section of this forum.

    You do know that you cannot have TS on a SBS box, and if you are then……well……good luck.
