Unfortunately WinXP Pro cannot cannot become a domain server, but you can install a free program called K9 Web Protection on each of the PC's you have on your network and will be able to allow users to browse safely on the internet. Here is a link to their site:

http://www1.k9webprotection.com/

It can filter web content and even setup a schedule of when users are granted web access and when it is denied.

Reset Password Windows Server 2008, 2008R2


As the popular use of Windows Server 2008, large amount of trivial things come up with us each minute, the occasion that we reset password Windows Server 2008 becomes also common. Therefore, Windows Server 2008 password reset is the necessary technique for us now!


Windows Server 2008 is one of Microsoft Windows Server serials of operating systems. Besides Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 is the latest and more secured versions from Microsoft. Windows Server 2008 has newly added many new functional features included that system administrators of small and large companies will enjoy.


Most of us use Windows 2008 Server as a workstation. That means a group of computers and devices on a network that are controlled as a unit with common rules and procedures. And the host manages these computers through its admin account and password.


If you forgot windows server 2008 password of local admin, I think it is easy for you to recover the password. But what if you forgot windows domain password? Things will get trickier and all of the computers in the domain paralyze. These passwords also called AD password. Before solving your password problem, you need to know what Active Directory Domain Controller is.


What is Active Directory Domain Controller?
A domain controller is a server that is running a version of the Windows Server operating system and has Active Directory Domain Services installed.


When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new forest, a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing Active Directory Domain Controller(AD DC).


There are differences between Domain and local. A Windows Server domain is a logical group of computers running versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system that share a central directory database. A user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.


A Domain Controller allows password authentication throughout a network. What this means is that your password is checked on the central server no matter which machine you log in from. A Domain Controller can also control access to files and directories which can be setup so users have access to all their files no matter which machine they log in from. This also makes adding and removing users among other things much easier as all that is required is a change on the Domain Controller itself rather than every machine on a network.


If you need reset domain administrator password (also called AD password), it will be a tricky thing. However, Ainorsoft Windows Password Recovery can allow you to reset password Windows Server 2008 domain.


Steps for Windows Server 2008 password reset domain:
Step1. Google Windows Password Recovery Corporation, download and install in any available computer.
Step2. Create a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive. (A blank CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive is needed)
Step3. BIOS set. Boot computer from the created CD/DVD/USB Flash Drive and set BIOS setup.
Step4. Reset Windows server 2008 or 2008R2 password to Re123456.

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and then click Active Directory Users and Computers. Goto the properties of your created Domain Controller and scroll down to find this function "DSMmachineAccount", click to to change the value to Zero.

Hope this will work.

Is Frontier your internet service provider? If so, please see the following;

Currently, we are seeing issues reported by many users who have Frontier as their Internet Service Provider and are seeing the error below.

pic1-1.jpg


We are offering a voluntary workaround for users who are unable to access the game through Frontier's DNS servers. A suggested way to solve this issue is to use OpenDNS servers. This solution was reported to have worked for a user with this issue. Please note: We are merely suggesting this suggestion, as it has been passed to us, but do not take responsibility for failure of this solution. We would also recommend this only for users who consider themselves to be knowledgeable about computer networking.

We are also investigating further and hope to have a more simple solution in the future.



How to change Windows 7/Vista to use OpenDNS servers:

1. Open your control panel.

2. Open up Network and Internet and go to the Network and Sharing Center.
pic2.jpg 3. Click on Change adapter settings on the left hand panel.

pic3.jpg
4. This will bring up a list of adapters present on your computer. Most people will have a Local Area Connection while laptop users will add a Wireless Network Connection and possibly a Bluetooth Network Connection...go ahead and right click on Local Area Connection and click on Properties.

NOTE: These steps do not change if you are modifying the Wireless Network Connection instead
pic4.jpg



5. If prompted by UAC, click on Yes.
6. Highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click on properties.


pic5.jpg 7. In the properties window you will see a few radio boxes with both of them saying Obtain an IP/DNS Address Automatically....we will leave the IP address alone and will change the Obtain DNS....to use the following:
In the Preferred DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.222.222

In the Alternate DNS server boxes enter this sequence: 208.67.220.220
pic6.jpg

8. Check the validate settings upon exit (Optional) check box, click OK, and then Close to finish. (See screenshot above)

9. Windows will check your settings (if you checked the option above) and you will be finished! Now start surfing to feel the effects of a quicker and more secure browsing experience!
How to change Windows XP DNS settings:
Sometimes you may want to override the default DNS (Domain Name Server) settings on your computer so you can specify which DNS server is used, or which IP address should be used for a particular domain. There are two ways to do this: Specify the DNS and map IP addresses.
(1) Specify the DNS to be Used To set your DNS, you need to find the Internet Protocol window.
For Users on a Dial-up Connection:

Go to My Computer>Dialup Networking.

Right-click your internet connection and select Properties.

A window will open - click the Server Types tab. Click TCP/IP Settings.
For All Other Users:

Go to Control Panel>Network Connections and select your local network.

Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

Click Properties.
You will see a window like the one below - this is the Internet Protocol window. Select "Use the following DNS server addresses" and enter the desired DNS server(s) in the space(s) provided.
pic7.jpg

Note: To add more DNS servers, click Advanced then the DNS tab.
(2) Map IP Addresses This method allows you to create settings for individual domains without altering your main DNS preferences. This is useful if you don't have access to a DNS or if you want to specify the location of a single domain without interfering with any of your other online activities.
Open the following file in a plain text editor such as Notepad:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
The file looks like the one below. At the end of the file (in this case, under the localhost entry), enter the IP and domain you wish to specify. When your browser attempts to access a domain it refers to this file first - if the domain is found here then the specified IP address will be used. If the domain is not found here, then the normal DNS server (as specified above) will be used.



pic8.jpg

(Note that for the XP one above, they can use the same OpenDNS servers
(208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) as for the Windows 7 link above)

How to Reset AD Password for Windows Server 2000, 2003 and 2008?


Have you ever forgotten Active Directory (AD) password? Do you know how to reset AD password? Is there any Windows password reset software to do AD password reset? If not, what to do to reset AD password? Before answering these questions and do AD password reset, you need to what is active directory, Windows domain and domain controller.
What is Active Directory?Active Directory is used by system administrators to store information about users, assign security policies, and deploy software. It was released first with Windows 2000 Server edition and refined further in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and was renamed Active Directory Domain Services. AD components include such domains, domain controllers, trust relationships, forests, organizational units, etc. What is a domain controller?
According to Wiki, a domain controller is a server that responds to security authentication requests (logging in, checking permissions, etc.) within the Windows Server domain. The domain controllers in your network are the centerpiece of your Active Directory service. It stores user account information, authenticates users and enforces security policy for a Windows domain. When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing AD DS.
What is a Domain?A domain is a concept introduced in Windows NT whereby a user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.
The domain concept not only allows a user to have access to resources that may be on different servers, but it also allows one domain to be given access to another domain in a trust relationship. In this arrangement, the user need only log in to the first domain to also have access to the second domain's resources as well.
So it is hard to say if there any windows password recovery software can reset AD password. Windows password recovery software like Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise can allow you to reset domain administrator password on Active directory for Windows server 2000/2003/2008.
Steps to reset domain administrator password
  • Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Unlocker Enterprise in any available computer.
  • Step 2: Run the software and insert a USB flash drive to computer.
  • Step 3: Select Domain Administrator and target USB drive, and then click the Burn button to start burning an ISO image file to the USB flash drive.
  • Step 4: Click ok when burning process is completed.
  • Step 5: Insert the burned USB flash drive to your locked computer and set the computer to boot from USB.
  • Step 6: Choose the way to reset AD password.
  • 2 options for you to reset domain password
  • 0b60bd0.jpg
  • Option 1: Reset the default domain administrator password to Pa123456
  • Option 2: Reset AD password by creating a specified domain administrator account.
  • Step 7: Click YES to continue and click Ok when the domain password has been successfully reset.
Now you can log on your domain with the user name of administrator and password of 'Pa123456' if you select option 1. If you select option 2, you can log on domain with the username of 'passkiller' and password of 'Pa123456'.

We Are Using Windows 2003 Server,But We Are Not Able To Access Server From Win XP & Win 98 Clients & Also We Are Not Able To Access Clients From Win 2003 Server. Please Help.


You must be on same domain/workgroup to see it and the computers should have an account on the server.
If not you MUST have a user account you are using on the server.
You can try to connect using the IP address of the server as such:
Go to start.run then type \\Serverip\c$ it should then ask for credentials
If not then your server is not on the network properly and you should contact a consultant in your area to configure the server

Hello,

my suggestion is: without ADS, we cannot create a domain server(till 2003 server). because, ADS is only known as Server and also it is the primary record for a domain creation.

we can go for installing ADS, by two methods.

1. using "dcpromo" command

2. Go to Administrative tools on the control panel. we can see the manage your server wizard. work with this.

we can install some services later, like dns,dhcp,ris. but ADS is the primary part.

bye,

You need to ensure your DNS server is the first in the workstation's DNS list.
