Open a command prompt.

sudo kill inetd

However inetd may be needed by other applications that you're wanting to run.

Kill command will shut down any application you desire. sudo, of course is to give you root access and will enable you the ability to do anything. It will require the root password as well.

Everyone can can connect to my Remote desktop on my server, also they can view activity on port:80 so my website's but when they want to connect to a game very very few people just get timed out? how is...

Allowing multiple access to a server desktop is a large security issue !

Port 80 is a common port used for a variety of applications so common access would be possible from multiple clients.

However games have a different set of ports that are required. Using port 80 for games is asking for problems.

You should set the security policy for the ports your game actually requires.
The firewall will also have to be configured.
Router configuration is another key area for running any form of game server again with the correct port forwarding set up for the game in question

I have a WHS server fo rbackup and media streaming and an SBS 2003 regular server for games (Halo) I followed the guide that came with the server component of the game to fully understand what was required for the ports etc.

Ideally you should also be on a fixed IP from your ISP too.
If your ISP does not allow servers you may find that high traffic is throttled by the ISP end.

With a 5mb x 800k high speed connection I can sustain 8 computers internal and another 10 external before lag issues kick in. My ISP does support servers and I am on a fixed IP with COGENT pipe as primary

Note also that I have to ensure than none of the internal computers are running bandwidth intensive apps such as torrents toolbars etc. All internal machines are also CLEAN with regular security scans and such as any machine having a security issue could be prone to extra bandwidth usage.

As you are running a server the info above should not be too confusing and easy to follow.

I am trying to use Joomla on my own computer and can not access the ''local host'', I have installed Xampp, am using windows vista, have a router between me and the internet.

To access "localhost" you must have a web server ( IIS or Apache - IIS is the simplest and is found in add/remove programs, Windows components usually) running on the PC that Joomla is installed on. You must also use http://localhost for it to work. Localhost means you are only doing a loopback to your own pc for testing purposes. By default most web servers run on port 80 if the port is changed then you must use "http://localhost:port". Depending on how your network is set up - If you have a router or firewall you may also have to "open" or do a port forward to port 80 for the software to see the server holding the Joomla pages and also allow internet access as a server. First try the default web page the server has usually default.htm or index.htm as http://localhost/default.htm etc, if it loads then you know localhost is functioning, then try the Joomla page you want to see using it in place of default.htm. If no page loads at the start - then check your Apache(Xampp) configuration file to be sure it is set up and working properly - if I recall it is hhtp.conf open it with notepad to configure and save as "all files" not text. You might also check your Joomla configuration options as well to be sure the correct port and location are used for serving pages.

Vista- Windows Installer problems

Well I saw your problem yesterday and its been bugging me ever since because I knew there had to be a way to stop it. It just came to me a few minutes ago, as I was having the same problem with Windows Installer a while back. These instructions may differ a little because they are far XP but it all goes to the same place.
Click on start>control panel>Administrative tools>Computer Management>Services and Applications>Services. Sroll down under Services and Applications and you will see Windows Installer. Right click on it>properties then click disable. So now it'll only come up when you need it..Good luck, let me know how it goes.

Having a prolem accessing a Hawking wireless camera from the internet.

Also In order to connect to your camera you may need to get access from your computer. I would ask a friend to send a signal from there computer to your computer and see what happens on your end. That may solve your problem.

Hope This Helps
