Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...


Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1), if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

How to network connect and activate windows 2007 & MAC X


Set up user accounts

Users connecting to Windows Sharing must have user accounts on the Mac OS X computer that is sharing. There is no guest access. Any person who already has an account on the Mac OS X computer can use his existing account. You must log in to the Mac OS X computer with an administrator account to set this up. The steps differ for new and existing users.

For new users
  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Accounts.
  3. Click New User (10.2) or the "+" button (10.3 or later).
  4. Enter the Name and Short Name for the user who will log in from Windows.

    The user's short name is exactly how the user will enter their name when they log in to Windows Sharing. The short name is always lowercase.

    For users of Windows 98: If you log in to Windows 98 with a username, make sure it matches your Mac OS X account's short name. If you do not log in to Windows 98 with a username, you will need to create a new Windows 98 username that matches the account short name in Mac OS X. For more information on using Windows operating systems, please see Microsoft documentation or contact Microsoft for further assistance.
  5. Enter the user's password.
  6. 10.2 only: Click the checkbox for "Allow user to log in from Windows".
  7. 10.2 only: Click OK.
  8. Quit System Preferences.

If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this, you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how to do this.

To locate and connect to the Windows computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the "computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who owns the computer or your network administrator.

If you cannot locate the Windows computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.

Make sure the Internet Connection Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers: step_1.gif

In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
step_2.gif

Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:

smb://DNSname/sharename smb://IPaddress/sharename
step_3.gif

Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.

Bullet Proof FTP Server Tutorial


This is for the BulletProof FTP Server 2.10. However, It should work fine on most following versions as well.
I'm assuming you have it installed and cracked.
Basics 1. Start the program. 2. Click on Setup > Main > General from the pull-down menu. 3. Enter your server name into the 'Server Name' box. Under Connection set the “Max number of users" to any number. This is the limit as to how many users can be on your sever at any time. 4. Click on the 'options' tab of that same panel (on the side) 5. Look at the bottom, under IP Options. Put a check in the box “Refuse Multiple Connections from the same IP”. This will prevent one person from blocking your FTP to others. 6. Also put a check in the 'Blocked Banned IP (instead of notifying client). VERY IMPORTANT! If somebody decides to 'Hammer' (attempt to login numerous times VERY quickly) your server/computer may CRASH if you don't enable this. 7. Click on the 'advanced' tab 8. At the bottom again look at the 'hammering area' 9. Enable 'anti-hammer' and 'do not reply to people hammering' Set it for the following: Block IP 120 min if 5 connections in 60 sec. You can set this at whatever you want to but that is pretty much a standard Click 'OK'
Adding Users 11. Setup > User accounts form pull-down. 12. Right click in the empty 'User Accounts' area on the right: choose 'Add' 13. Enter account name. (ie: logon name) 14. In the 'Access rights' box right click: choose ‘Add’. 15. Browse until you find the directory (folder) you want to share. In the right column you will see a bunch of checkboxes. Put a check in the following ones: Read, Write, Append, Make, List, and +Subdirs. Press 'select'. 16. Enter a password for your new FTP account. 17. Click on 'Miscellaneous' in the left column. Make sure 'Enable Account' is selected. Enable 'Max Number of Users' set it at a number other than zero. 1 for a personal account and more that one for a group account. Enable 'Max. no. of connects per IP' set it at 1
18. Under 'Files' enable 'show relative path' this is a security issue. A FTP client will now not be able to see the ENTIRE path of the FTP. It will only see the path from the main directory. Hide hidden flies as well. Put a tick in both of these.
Advanced: You don't need to do any of this stuff, but It will help tweak your server and help you maintain order on it. All of the following will be broken down into small little areas that will tell you how to do one thing at a time.
Changing the Port The default port is always 21, but you can change this. Many ISPs will routinely do a scan of its own users to find a ftp server, also when people scan for pubs they may scan your IP, thus finding your ftp server. If you do decide to change it many suggest that you make the port over 10,000. 1. Setup > Main > General 2. In the 'Connection' Area is a setting labeled 'Listen on Port Number:' 3. Make it any number you want. That will be your port number. 4. Click 'OK'
Making an 'Upload Only' or 'Download Only' ftp server. This is for the entire SERVER, not just a user. 1. Setup > Main > Advanced 2. In the advanced window you will have the following options: uploads and downloads, downloads only, and uploads only. By default upload and download will be checked. Change it to whatever you want. 3. Click 'OK’

While you are running your server, usually you will end up spending more time at your computer than you normally do. Don't be afraid to ban IP's. Remember, on your FTP you do as you want.
When you are online you must also select the open server button next to the on-line button which is the on-line Button
You also have to use the actual Numbered ip Address ie: 66.250.216.67
Or even Better yet, get a no-ip.com address

Create an FTP Server on your PC with Serv-u Requirement: Serv-u No-IP.com...


Create an FTP Server on your PC with Serv-u

Requirement:
Serv-u
No-IP.com Website

Quote:
Step 1. Getting a static IP address. Get a static address for your FTP server. You will want to do this as opposed to using your IP address keeping up-to-date. Imagine having to change all of your setting every time your IP changed. With No-IP, the No-IP service runs in background on your computer and updates your current IP address with your FTP server's URL (for example, you get ftp://rkchoolie.serveftp.com). Second reason, you don't want your IP address posted out there for everyone to see.

1. Go to www.No-IP.com to create a new user account.
2. Fill in the information that is required and the click Register button.
3. Your account has now been created and your accound password has been emailed to you.
4. Check your email mailbox and wait for the mailbox and wait for the mail that contains your password
5. Go back to www.No-IP.com and type your email address and password to login to your account.
6. Once in your account, click on Add a host in the left menu
7. Type in the Hostname you want (example: rkchoolie) and pick a Domain from the list (example: ftpserve.com)
8. Check Allow Wildcards and click the Submit button
9. You now have your static address (example: rkchoolie.serveftp.com)
10. Click on your OS link in the Dyn-Update Client in the bottom right menu and follow links to download the client
11. Once downloaded, install the software and type in your email address and password when asked.
12. Finally tick the checkbox near your static address.

You now have a static web address .


Quote:
Step 2. Installing and setting the FTP server
1. Install Serv-U 4.0.
2. Start Serv-U and use the wizard to setup your ftp.
3. Click next until you're asked for an IP address, leave it blank and then click next.
4. Type the domain name you've just registered above (example: preacher.serveftp.com) in the domain name field and then click Next.
5. You are asked if you want to allow anonymous access, select No and then click next.
6. You are then asked to create a named account, check yes and then click next.
7. Type in the user name you wish for this account (example: Harrie) and click next.
8. Type a password for this account (example: $p3c1aL). For security reasons, try to create a password with some letters, numbers and special characters. Then click next.
9. You will then be asked for the Home directory of the account you just created. Select the directory and then click next.
10. Select yes to lock this account to the Home directory. You want to do this so that the user can not go any further up that his home directory. Click next.
11. The account is now set so click finish.

Quote:
Step 3. Configuring user accounts
1. In the left tree-menu, select the account you've just created and then click on the General tab.
2. Check Hide ‘Hidden’ Files.
3. Check Allow only and enter the number one in the box.
4. Set the Max. download speed to what ever you want. If this is an account that many will be using, set it low to save on your bandwidth. I usually have mine set between 10 – 20. If you leave it blank, users will be able to download from you at full bandwidth.
5. Set the Max no. of users to how many you want to be able to log on at one time. This depends on your connection speed but try these (56 - 1, ISDN - 3, ADSL or cable - 5-6 users.)
6. Now, click on the Dir Access tab.
7. You should see the home folder in there. Highlight it and make your permissions.
8. If you only want users to be able to download check only Read, List, & Inherit.
9. If you want users to be able to upload, but to only one particular folder but not download, click the add button and then select that folder. Now highlight the folder and set these permissions on that folder. Check Write, Append, List, Create, & Inherit. Once you have made the permissions click on the up arrow that is located at the bottom right-hand corner. You want this special upload folder to be list first, before the home folder.
10. If there is a folder that you don’t want anyone to have access to, but it is inside the home folder, then click the add button and then select that folder. Now highlight the folder and make sure that all checkboxes are left. Once you have made the permissions click on the up arrow that is located at the bottom right-hand corner. You want this no access folder to be listed at the very top.
11. There are many other different sets of permissions you can play with. I just covered your basics.
12. Your server is now set!
13. Try logging on with the username and password and see if it works.
