OK, so maybe that was the worst question title ever, but I honestly don't know how to explain this in a short phrase.
A customer has Word 2000 on her computer. Her IP address is 192.168.1.5, and the document she's editing is on her office server at 192.168.1.1. She sent me the file, and my word 2007 hung. I tried it on another computer here, and it hung as wel, but I thought I caught a glimpse of something about 192.168. something in Word's status bar.
My office network is 192.168.0.whatever, so the 192.168.1.x addresses are meaningless here. I fired up wireshark, and sure enough, I can see that when I attempt to open this document, my computer is attempting to talk netbios with 192.168.1.1. It then tries to talk to 192.168.1.1 port 80. After about 5 minutes of getting nowhere, the document finally opens and looks normal. I then tried saving it as a new filename and re-opening it, and the same thing happens.
I have attached the file in question, though this also happens with other files.
What's going on here, and how do I make it stop?
