  1. Hi i have been practically networking for nearly year but i dont no theoritically. Ive read there are 3 classess of ip which can be used in LAN. Class A, B & C. 3 PCs 10.0.0.1 10.0.0.2 10.1.1.1 According what i read, in Class A the first part is network id, the second, third and fourth part is host id. Now in the above assigned ips why only first two can communicate, why the first two cannot communicate/ping with the third one.
  2. Can somebody please recommend me the good and easy gif creator software for the website.
  3. I will be helping a friend who works for one small charity organisation. Their aim is to teach local old people computers lesson. They currently have p2p network of 15 win2k clients . My friend is planning to: *Remove windows 2000 & install fresh copy of Windows xp in this 15 clients. *Setup windows 2003 server *Setup Domain based network. One thing striking in my mind is: What to do with the Winxp firewall? Does it needs to be enabled/disabled? By enabling, will it give any problems/restriction on access? Is there any things/tips i need to keep in mind when setting up win2003 network with Winxp clients? (i have been working with the LAN with win2k adv server & win2k prof clients, so no experience with networking xp clients)
  4. Here the users will be accessing intranet page from outside the office. Point 2: Some domain hosting company charges for setting up subdomains like mail.xyz.com. So ive told him to makes sure of this. Point 3: is just a general answer i.e. pointing xyz.com to the his company's exchange/iis server.
  5. A friend of mine asked me followings: "Im going to buy domain name for the purpose of hosting our company's Intranet Site & Exchange Server for mail purpose. What are the things i have to look for?" I replied: Make sure the domain name hosting company: 1. Allows you to setup MX & A record. 2. Setup subdomains. 3. Allows your domain names to point any static IP address or hostname. 4. Has web based control panel. Make sure they dont charge extra to do the above tasks. There are several hosting company who does. Thats all i know. If you people know any others things to keep in mind before buying domain name, please can you put it forward here........ We will be greatful.

  10. LAN Details 1 Windows 2000 Server DC 1 Windows 2000 Member Server 20 Windows 2000 Prof Clients All clients has 20gb HD with 3 partitions. Ive created and saved the ghost image of C: drive of the clients in the Member Server's shared folder. I use network boot disk to restore the image by accessing the shared folder where image was saved. Ive heard that if i add a ghost command line switch to the network boot disks batch file it will auto restore the image. I dont no how the cmd switch works, i checked the manual and tried this line. ghost.exe -clone,mode=restore,src=image_c.GHO,dst=1:1 -sure Now after the restore i can see that all the partitions of the clients has been deleted. It has restored as whole 20gb as 1 partition. Anybody there using this Autorestore method with cmd switches please help me....will be greatful.
