Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Can't get benefits of service because I lease TIVO thru cable co.

I lease my TIVO box thru my cable co. TIVO just came out with a new service - link your TIVO thru your PC and buy videos on demand via Amazon Unbox. I live in a small town and we don't get a lot of perks with the cable co. I bought the adapter necessary and installed it correctly. To begin using the service you have to go to TIVO and register your box, they will then give you a password. HOWEVER because I do not own the box TIVO will not give me a password. The TIVO tech and I conferenced with the cable co. and the cable co. doesn't understand. They just keep saying "You don't get VOD in your area". Because TIVO offers this service via my computer I will buy the videos from Amazon. Any suggestions on how I can tap into this service bypassing the ignorance of my cable co?

Your cable company is telling you that you do not have enought band width to download and use (VOD) Video On Demand.  They are unwilling to sell you, or your equiptment does not support such a high speed continuous download.  No.. Their is no way around it. Nextflix or Redbox may be alternitives for you.

Do you have a cable modem or DSL modem?

If you're interested in buying a modem from your internet service provider (ISP), I would first give their customer service a call and ask them if purchasing is an option. They may even sell you one and/or ask them what they recommend. Based off price and other information they provide you, then you can make a further decision.

DHCP Server configuration in Linux


Linux is a UNIX based operating system. It is a server operating system. REDHAT Linux is Enterprise version of Linux. Now a day's Most of corporate sectors use red hat Linux as server in their company because it is secure very much.

Full form of DHCP "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP server assigns IP addresses and other network configuration information like subnet mask, broadcast address, etc to computers on a network. The DHCP assignments are the following.

Lease Request: Client broadcasts their request to DHCP server with a source address of 0.0.0.0 and a destination address of 255.255.255.255.
IP lease offer: DHCP server replies with an IP address, subnet mask, network gateway, name of the domain, name servers, duration of the lease and the IP address of the DHCP server.

Lease Selection: Client receives offer and broadcasts to al DHCP servers that will accept given offer so that other DHCP server need not make an offer.

The DHCP server then sends an ack to the client. The client is configured to use TCP/IP. Lease Renewal: When half of the lease time has expired, the client will issue a new request to the DHCP server.

Installation of DHCP server: First of all while install the RedHat Linux enterprise version server be careful about the ports and the services must be turned on. To create DHCP server in Linux first download DHCP RPM package and install with "rpm-ivh" command. Where I have done it there I have create YUM server, so easily I have download and install it by YUM (yum install dhcp version). DHCP package will locate in /usr/share/doc/at Linux file system. I copied the DHCP's files from /usr/share/doc/ to /etc/dhcpd.conf.. Then I started to configure the dhcpd.conf file to route the DHCP server in there local network. I have open the configuration file with "vi" command. Then commented out the lines from "default gateway to option netbios" because system don't read the commented lines. After that I set the range of IP address in dynamic- bootp of their local assumption of system. I have change the "next-server" with the dhcp server name and have also change the fixed address with the dhcp server IP address (end range of dynamic IP). It is very easy job to configure DHCP server. After configure the .conf file of dhcp just turn on the service with "chkconfig" command and restart the dhcp service. After that entire job I reboot the system. And after rebooting of server I turned on the other client system. While startup the client system without static IP address all of those picked up IP from dhcp server and going on successfully. I have prefer the command line mode to do the total job.
The DHCP server configure file is following:

ddns-update-style interim
ignore client-updates

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# The range of IP addresses the server
# will issue to DHCP enabled PC clients
# booting up on the network

range 192.168.1.201 192.168.1.220;
# Set the amount of time in seconds that
# a client may keep the IP address

default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;

# Set the default gateway to be used by
# the PC clients

option routers 192.168.1.1;
# Don't forward DHCP requests from this
# NIC interface to any other NIC
# interfaces

option ip-forwarding off;

# Set the broadcast address and subnet mask
# to be used by the DHCP clients

option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

# Set the NTP server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option ntp-servers 192.168.1.100;

# Set the DNS server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# If you specify a WINS server for your Windows clients,
# you need to include the following option in the dhcpd.conf file:

option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# You can also assign specific IP addresses based on the clients'
# ethernet MAC address as follows (Host's name is "laser-printer":

host laser-printer {
hardware ethernet 08:00:2b:4c:59:23;
fixed-address 192.168.1.222;
}
}
#
# List an unused interface here
#
subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

Should I buy or lease a retail POS system?


Whether you buy or lease a retail point of sale system depends on your budget. Many technology vendors today offer flexible leasing options for retail POS software, including 100% financing. By leasing the retail software and/or the point of sale hardware, you can reduce the initial start-up costs associated with a new retail point of sale system.

This sounds like a connectivity problem. Check your internet connection. From the start menu select run. Type cmd in the box and hit enter. At the command prompt screen type
iconfig /renew and press enter.

It should give you a reading such as:

I leased a computer from Gateway in 2004 and the lease is up. How do I found out about returning the machine OR buying it outright? I have phoned at least 15 times to find out. No one can hook me up...


Try going through the support section of Gateways website. If you can get someone through that they should be able to tell you the procedure for lease termination.

After four years on lease I think you probably MORE than paid for the system already. If you still can't get ahold of anyone through support, I'm sure once lease payments stop coming in, they'll contact YOU. At that time you can find out the information you seek.

Hope this helps

I leases a computer in 2004 and the lease is up in a month. What do i do?


What are your options. If you need more computer, you will want to upgrade, because todays computers are much better than a four year old. If you have options to buy it, and it fits your needs and the price is good, I would buy it. I sure would not pay much for a four year old computer. I dont know why you are leasing a desk top when they are so cheap now. My son leased a HP and it ended up costing him about $2000 for a $1000 system. Buy you a new computer with an extended warranty.

Our fire station has a cat5e cable supplying internet access to our internal network from a switch in city hall. It connects a baystack 350 to their switch. If this cable is left plugged in during the...


Very likely an IP problem. The server in City Hall is most likely doing the DHCP assignments for all connected machines, and if there is a LAN server running DHCP also in the firehall, there will be a conflict, which may not manifest itself until the assigned IP leases expire and renew. If this is the case, try a router WITH DHCP DISABLED between the two systems, WAN side toward City Hall. As a quick test, disconnect the cable and run IPCONFIG on a firehouse machine. Note the IP, it should begin with 10, 172 or 192. Reboot the machine, run IPCONFIG again. If the IP comes back, you have DHCP running on something. If you see something like 169.254.???.??? you do not, in that case try hooking up a router configured just as it comes from the box. If anything in the firehouse is wireless, making connection thru a wireless router, the problem may be a simple miswire. WAN side toward City Hall and one of the ports toward your switch, don't use the other three. May need to use the uplink port or a crossover cable between router and switch.
