Have you got Antivirus running on the server? I’ve seen AV cause saves to fileshares slow down. Try relaxing the settings and see if it makes any difference. Also, make sure the servers are running the latest firmware on the devices and the latest corresponding drivers. Thanks, Greg.

You are going to have to provide more information than that. Most of us know what a KVM switch is, but (to me at least) “AMD” is a manufacturer of microprocessors and other chips. You don’t specify whether or not you mean the KVM switch won’t work on the keyboard port of some machine, or [...]

You don’t. There is no such relation in the Internet. What you can find is which IPs belong to a certain company. But there is no standard query for this lookup, only the reverse (which company owns this IP). Now lets make a little experiemnt and look into searchopensource.techtarget.com specifically % host searchopensource.techtarget.com searchopensource.techtarget.com is [...]

How is the system on the other end configured? You may want to try a sniffer to see what the packets actually look like. When we have network issues I use ethereal on a regular basis to see what is actually happening. Even though I’m not trained on this software, it has pointed me to [...]

Yes, there is such a cable. It’s called a back-to-back cable. The best place to look is probably eBay. Something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=9714988623 is probably what you need, but be sure to verify what type of physical connectors you need on each end before buying. Search for ‘cisco serial cable back’. —JRE—

Don’t know what might have caused this to start happening, but you should make sure you have updated antivirus and spyware protection. If so, do scans in safe mode. Check your startup programs for anything non-standard. Use Startup Control Panel from www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml. Check [HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelDesktop] and change AutoEndTasks=1 to fix the symptom.
