Detailed Problem definition: The problem is there is no communication to administrators, staff/students when the CS server goes down. Monitoring is done by IT staff by manually checking the PC status and other hardware statistics. There is no alerting system to notify the service and host down. Network administration department staffs finding difficulties in reports generation about the situation. Staff has a time limited window in which to deliver their lesson. If that's an online lesson and the network is running slow or down, staff will not be able to complete the lesson and the students will be moving on to the next class in their schedule. It wastes of time for staff /students. JNTU needs some system which alerts some email or text messages to staff/students.

DNS Error - Server cannot be found.


Hi,
This can be an ISP problem or the DNS settings on your computer could be wrong. To check this, go to control panel then network connections, right click on Local Area Network then click on properties. Make sure you have Obtain DNS address in automatic. If this won't work, try calling your ISP as they may have a DNS problem ongoing.

Hope this helps.

Error 404


Hi.<br /> <br /> 404 error page not found means that the computer is connected to the Internet, but that it cannot find the page linked to the domain name (that www.something.com, aka URL), or linked to the IP address typed into the browser (eg. Internet Explorer) address bar.<br /> <br /> The error is usually displayed because of either one of the following reasons:<br /> <br /> 1) The web page does not exist or the website does not work. In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from any computer. Test using at list two different computers and two different network connections.<br /> <br /> <ol> <li>This usually translates in one of the following:</li> <li>You wrote the URL in the wrong way.</li> <li>The web page requested does not exist.</li> <li>The web server hosting the website is down.</li> <li>The domain name is not linked to the website anymore (setting problems or subscription expired)</li></ol> <br /> 2) Your computer's DNS or network settings are wrong.In this case the web page requested will return error 404 from this computer. The same page will be displayed using a different computer or network. One example of this situation is when some malaware disables access to Websites like Microsoft by changing DNS service. If this is the case the same page will be displayed using other computers, but you will get error 404 with this particular computer.<br /> <br /> If this is the case, ensure that you have installed an efficient and updated antivirus. Run a virus scan.<br /> If that is not enough to fix the problem, try the following reset:<br /> <br /> 1- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i browseui.dll&gt;&gt; enter<br /> <br /> A dialog box with a confirmation message will be displayed. Click OK.<br /> <br /> 2- Click Start &gt;&gt; Run &gt;&gt; regsvr32 /i shell32.dll<br /> <br /> Wait for the dialog box, then click OK.<br /> <br /> Regards.<br /> <br /> Ginko.<br /> <br /> <br />

Error 105 net err_name_not_resolved


It looks to me is a Name Resolution problem. The problem is with the DNS Server.
  1. Do you have a Firewall or an Antivirus suite Installed? Please let me know in the next comment.
  2. Then you have to check your DNS settings. IF you have use Router to perform DNS resolution, you have to check the Router's Diagnostics. You have to check the DNS server which the router connects. If it is internal, you may be having an IP Address misconfiguration. You can solve it by going to the Network and Internet connections (Control Panel Applet).
  3. Right click the LAN icon and go to Properties and then Double click TCP/IP properties. Check whether you have assigned a DNS automatically. If you know the address of the Local DNS (if you have one), please specify the IP Address of DNS "Manually".
  4. Right click the Icon above mentioned and select "Stats".
  5. Click on "Support" and then "Details".
  6. Check whether the DNS, DHCP (if available) and Default Gateway (your router most probably) are set Properly.
  7. If all the settings are properly assigned, then you have to check your Antivirus suite and its Firewall (or Windows firewall if you have Modified the settings recently). Try Disabling.
  8. If you still receive the error, you have to clear your DNS cache.
  9. Click Start =>Run, type in cmd, press OK.
  10. Type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter.
  11. Then again type ipconfig /registerdns. (You can view DNS Resolver Cache by using ipconfig /displaydns command). Clear your Browser's Cookies as well. You can do that by going to Tools => Internet Options.
  12. If non of these works, you have to try this method.
  13. Click Start =>Run, type in CMD, press OK.
  14. Copy and paste this into the Command prompt:
  15. netsh winsock reset catalog
  16. Press Enter
  17. Then copy and paste this in:
  18. netsh int ip reset reset.log
  19. Press Enter.
  20. When finished restart your computer.

Feel free to contact further. Please RATE the answer as well!
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

When I search for google page I get the error message OOPS link may be broken


I have looked around and if you are using the Google Chrome browser then turn off the DNS fetching. Go to chrome OPTIONS, then check the under the hood tab and uncheck "Use DNS pre-fetching"

If you cannot ping the site, it is not likely an issue with your browser, as generally pinging is done through Windows. Check out http://www.opendns.com/
It is an excellent dns server, since your ISP (most are..) have crappy servers.

And finally it may be due to a ISP (internet service provider) outage or the ISP is under attack by people who "hack" business and personal websites. These people attack a website with multiple requests and then the website server can not keep up with these request thus shutting it down for everyone else trying to get there

'Create new website' link on synthasite.com fails to open


It could be a DNS problem.
Goto Start > Run. . . > Type in "cmd" (without the quotes), hit enter or ok.

Type in "ipconfig /all", and look in there besides DNS Servers, if there is not one listed that would be your problem.

If that is not it try Control Panel>internet options>Programs> hit Reset Web Settings

Please tell the results and I will continue to help you the best I can if this is not it.
