Troubleshooting loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); • There is an IP address conflict: If you attempt to assign an IP address that is already in use, you receive the following error message: The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address. In this case, assign an unused IP address to the network adapter.
• Your computer cannot connect to other computers on the network: If you assign an incorrect subnet mask address to the network adapter, the computer is effectively located on a different network. You cannot connect to other computers on the network. • Your computer cannot connect to other computers by using host names: If you assign an incorrect DNS server IP address, or if you do not use a DNS server, you cannot connect to computers by using their host names. This prevents you from browsing the Internet. You can connect to other computers by using their IP addresses.
You can work around this issue in a local network by adding host-name-to-IP-address mappings in a Hosts file.
