Unable to access IP resources on home network
Posted on 2004-08-03
I am running a very simple network at home. My PC is running XP Pro, stays on 24 hours a day and has a broadband connection via ntl. I am running BlackICE as a firewall and NetProxy as a proxy server. I am also running the AnalogX Atomic TimeSync in server mode. My two sons are running Win98SE and connect to my PC for data storage and web access. They also set their PCs times from the Atomic TimeSync server.
My youngest son's PC is still working fine, but my older son's PC cannot access the internet. He gets a page not found message in IE. He also gets a server not found error when trying to access Atomic TimeSync. He is getting an IP address in the right range and there are no messages in the BlackICE or NetProxy logs. He can ping my PC OK and can browse network resources in Explorer.
I have tried reinstalling the NIC drivers and reinstalling IE6. I have tried changing his IP address to another one in the range. I have also tried logging on to his PC using my profile. It still won't access the net.
Does anyone have any suggestions? This is driving me really nuts (and my son isn't too pleased either!) I would be really grateful for any help on this.
