comment Cannot browse remote networks even with WINS configured
I see. Well, how come it cannot traverse broadcast domains and one has to use WINS then? I suppose I need to read up about that. Anyway, I have already set option 044 in DHCP options (as well as 003, 006, 015 (and 046 as I mentioned above). This problem is also occurring with servers with static IP addresses. It's is just through the DHCP setting that I have realised that point-to-point from WINS is not working, and it is not attempting Broadcast, which I would have thought should happen.

comment Windows 2008 Server can't connect to FTP
Oh okay. You could always use an SFTP server instead of using FTPS, and I'm sure you know that FTP is very unsecure. Windows users could use FileZilla or WinSCP to upload files. Dreamweaver also has SFTP support built-in.

Are you just trying to get files onto the server because you are using Server Core? If you are, I have a much better soution.

comment How to set interface settings for WINS using netsh?
Okay, it seems that one need to use the second command on DHCP clients and the first command is actually meant for WINS Servers which have DHCP addresses.

comment How to set interface settings for WINS using netsh?
I've actually been trying netsh int ipv4 set winsservers name=LAN source=dhcp on a desktop machine, but nothing has appeared in the GUI, and nothing in ipconfig /all. The command appears to be accepted, but with no effect. Is a reboot needed? The remove server with a static address which I need to do this on has no GUI, so I need to make sure this is correct before I try it on that, as I do not want to mess it up.

comment Apache2 Manage Server default
The way you can avoid the IP address defaulting to the default site is to make another blank default site and have a vhost pointing to it. To make that site the default on Debian-based is to have the symlink in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ start with the lowest number, like 000.

comment Apache2 Manage Server default
No, you do not need to do this, and you should not do this if you have Apache listening on more than one IP address and you want to keep them separate.

comment Specific font in Windows 7 works, but in Windows Server 2003 doesn't. Why?
It looks like you imported the font in a way other than dragging it to the Fonts folder, or by using a font manager. Using the command line to copy a font to the system font folder does not enable it, IIRC.

comment Create new AD account similar to a current user
That what the hidden Default User profile is for. It's a template for new users, but I am not sure how to have multiple profiles and apply them. There are also GPOs and Group Policy Preferences, which would be easy to make different sets of.

comment Specific font in Windows 7 works, but in Windows Server 2003 doesn't. Why?
@ViniciusOttoni: Okay, it's not a Unicode issue then. but something is wrong with your OS installation, or maybe you need to try Windows Update or something.

comment Specific font in Windows 7 works, but in Windows Server 2003 doesn't. Why?
@ViniciusOttoni: I'm not sure - selecting properties in the font folder doesn't tell you much. You can try using a trial version of a font manager, like Extensis Suitcase, which may give your more details, or you can just see if it works okay in Vista, but doesn't in XP or Win2000.

comment How do you override a GPO with another GPO?
When you say 'set this GPO's link order higher than the other GPO', do you mean a numerically higher Precedence, or higher in the list (which would be a lower numerical Precedence)?

comment Changing Window XP Network configuration (IP Address, Subnet, Default GW etc) in CMD
@EladDotan: IIRC, for XP all you need to do is replace ipv4 with ip for this particular command.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: I cannot see how your comment explained the first part of my comment, and I said that I have set up Forwarders (if I had not, I would never have had DNS resolution for external sites for all this time), so I still do not understand what I mentioned earlier.

Thanks - that has resolved the problem. If you want to make an answer out of it, I will be pleased to accept it.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: Thanks, I'll add each DC as the other's secondary DNS lookup server. However, I cannot see how this could make any difference, as they will always be able to connect to themselves as primary choice, and they both have the same replicated DNS zone anyway. Of course the DCs have Forwarder for unresolved DNS queries. Is that what you meant, or something else? Cheers.

comment Domain Controller DCdiag error - A Global Catalog Server could not be located
@SpacemanSpiff: I corrected the DNS discrepency I mentioned above, but I still get the error. No, it's just a new replica, not a recovery. I just checked the DNC client settings. They original DC is set to 127.0.0.1 only and the replica is set to an external public DNS server as primary and 127.0.0.1 as secondary. I'll remove the external entry, but should they also include each other as the second entry? As they have replicated DNS databases, would that even make a difference?
