tcp-ip problem

Hi all
I have a windows 95 pc which comes up with the following error  every so often.  Can't get out of it and must press CTRL + ALT + DEL to restart pc.  Then error states:

the other end of tcp-ip has been shut down.  Connection to the server has not been established.

Working on the server before this so connection was there before the message.

Can anybody help as this is annoying

regards
Botch

ps. will increase points if it is difficult to solve

Is that the actual error message or your interpretation of it?  If that is the actual message, that doesn't look like a Microsoft error message.  Even in all their splendorous glory, I don't think they would say something as silly as "the other end of tcp-ip has been shut down".  Was there an application you were running at the time that this happened?  I am assuming yes.  Typically a server change doesn't just lock up the clients.  Can you provide more detail as to what the situation is?

Yep. More detail, please . . . losing connectivity may be a symptom of a different problem. In the mean time, get the latest drivers for the network interface card in your w95 pc and install them.

"the other end..." sounds like a named pipe connection. there is a client end of a C/S app that keeps trying to reconnect to a non-existant server.

FYI, always note the text in the TITLE BAR of the window containing the error message as well as the error text itself. This identifies the source process. This is need to know info for would-be troubleshooters.

Now that you know what it is, try killing it. press CRTL-ALT-DEL (just once) and look for the process with the same name or similar. click "end process".

if you are sucessful, you then need to identify the process, determine if it is necessary or not, then likely remove it from startup.

This is a time-out, for accessing servers that do not provide unlimited connection time. FTP can be example, where you cannot keep session going forever.

Exit program (client), reconnect. Not all that difficult. If it is all internal LAN, then increase the relevant time-out features for the relevant applications.

You might want to create a separate icon for 'login' for application, for any cases where you just have to use login scripts. Personally, I prefer mapping drives.

Thanks everybody for the help.  It was not a windows problem but an appliaction was bringing up the message.  Told my friend to do ctrl + Alt + del and end the process.  This shut down the program and she just restarted it again.  So it seems to bee some type of bug with the software of the application.

Botch.

ps. Sorry I was slow to shut the question and appriciate all help that was given
