  1. I actually did not try. I guess i was checking with the family forum to see if it was a prudent thing to do. I thought best to check with the experts first. Any time i see the word security i go cautious. I opened the ticket just to check with the folks who maintain the box. Thanks Bruce. Thats actually the same link SMF gave me. Did not actually open Bruce's link assuming it was a link to the home page. Sorry, had i opened , coming from you I would have been confident trying it. Thanks again.
  2. I actually did that Bruce. They suggested disabling mod_security. I opened a ticket with TCH and got a reply that that was not possible.
  3. Don, are you familiar with any potential mod_security issues using SMF?
  4. Thanks Guys. I think I'll give SMF a shot.
  5. Hey TCH, I just got my 3rd hosting package here and am looking forward to the same great experience i have had so far. With this latest project, i would like to introduce a message board for visitors to access. I have scanned the Forum and come accross a few options phpBB Invision Power Board Talkshop Simple Machines I see PBB on my cpanel so i assume thats a free choice the TCH has available. IPB seems to have yanked their free version and I do not know much about the others. I was hoping I could get some suggestions and perhaps some examples of known boards that people might be using these or other options for. Thanks in advance for any help. As far as choosing one other than PhpBB, are their any restrictions as to what can e installed on a TCH server Greg PS...what does the TCH Family Forum use? That might make my choice easy to make.
  6. Bruce I can't explain it....my old machine could connect through this modem but the new computer could not. So to me it its obvious its the new computer. After looking at everything on this machine and finding nothing I went back to check the modem and started fiddling around. Now they can both get there through the modem. It was the modem all along. Holy Cow. Well thanks for entertaining my frustration and for your tips. I was starting to doubt my sanity. You may be able to go to www.grc.com and run a port scan on your machine and see if it's blocked. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Does Infowave Mobility Server ring a bell to anyone? I just found that on a port list that Cpanel and Infowave Mobility Server conflict with eachother. Some Hp product? <{POST_SNAPBACK}>

  8. Very difficult indeed. I am going to try this out tonight Bruce, when I am back infront of the problem machine. Thanks. Is there one definative command that will tell me for sure that the port is indeed blocked?
  9. Hey Bruce, Yes I actually have opened 2. the 2nd one last night. I got some suggestions this morning about turning off firewalls etc. I have tried all of that. But basically the respeonse was that TCH cannot support clients local problems. Thats totally understandable as everyone has different issues on their machines. I even had Dell send me a new machine. Still no luck. So, I am back to the forums hoping I may luck out. I should have gotten into networking instead of databases. Thanks, gd
  10. sardaukar, Have you made any progress with this? I have tried it all with no luck at all
  11. If any of the TCH guru's are online and have a miniye to AIM me about this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  12. Yes, I just have not been able to get him at a good time when i am on this machine. I am sure he is pretty busy. I am going to keep trying of course. Supposrt suggested that I make sure port 2082 is unblocked. Does anyone know of a tool that can tell me for sure if the port is actually blocked? thanks gd
  13. tabiat....I will update here when i find a solution but nothing yet. You mention your ISP. for me, that is not it. I can hit the cpanel from another machine sitting right next to this one running through the same cable modem. Gotta be XP of Mcafee firewall. try https://www.thedreamschool.com:2083 or http://www.thedreamschool.com/cpanel/ <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  14. Thanks For the tips and the welcomes guys. I was on the phone with Dell last night for 2 hours. no luck. Its not my provider, not my firewall as i disabled both XP and McAfee still with no luck. I see that someone mentioned it could be another program causing the problem. AOL specifically. Does an uininstall of the offending program take care of this? Real nice new computer but completely useless to me me without my cpanel. Thanks. while I cannot login of course but it loaded to the login window quickly for me. and welcome gd <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
  15. Hi, I am hoping perhaps someone has come accross this before. XP professional on a new machine and I am unable to access my cpanel from it. Is anyone out there familiar with whatever setting it might be that is blocking me? Thanks in advance. gd
