Diagnostic log
--------------

Windows version:
Windows 95
Major Version = 4
Minor Version = 10
Build Number = 67766446
Platform ID = 1
CSDVersion = A

This is NOT the case. This is a Windows 98 Second Edition with all security fixes and service packs that MS has to offer installed.

And it did not identify my DNS correctly.

I have my own DNS server running, and the laptop get's it's IP address and DNS server via DHCP.

I did at one time have my univerisity DNS server set and a manual IP in the settings. This univeristy DNS is the one that is displayed and not the one supplied via DHCP and is in use.

The platforms reported are 'Win32s under Windows 3.x', 'Windows 95', and 'Windows NT'. These are actually just the names we are using for the platform families. Win 95/98/ME all appear as "Windows 95". The detail version information shows the information about the actual product.

The DNS server is simply extracted from winipcfg output using 'winipcfg.exe /all /batch'. Could you run this command and paste the output here?

Well, this is the main outstanding problem. I guess you have a proxy set up... I'm not currently checking for proxies, other than transparent proxies.

I wonder what the easiest way to create an HTTP connection through the current proxy is. Maybe I should try using the IE control or something... Any ideas folks?

OK,

I ran ipcongig /all /batch since winipcfg with those parameters didn't do much.

to make sure that the university department DNS 134.91.100.2 is not involved in any way, I ran this on my gateway:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 53 --destination 134.91.100.2 -j REJECT
iptables -A INPUT -p udp --dport 53 --destination 134.91.100.2 -j REJECT

Still name resolutions still works.

did the same for -A FORWARD and it still works.

Not surprisingly, as my DHCPd global options look like this:

option domain-name "klose";
option domain-name-servers 192.168.133.1;
option routers 192.168.133.1;
option root-path "192.168.133.1:/data/ltsp/i386";

option space PXE;
option PXE.mtftp-ip code 1 = ip-address;
option PXE.mtftp-cport code 2 = unsigned integer 16;
option PXE.mtftp-sport code 3 = unsigned integer 16;
option PXE.mtftp-tmout code 4 = unsigned integer 8;
option PXE.mtftp-delay code 5 = unsigned integer 8;

i don't like it when you move to another window and return nothing is shown because it is still running, for some people it will look like it is crashed, how about disabling the copy button?

My office use Wingate from Deerfield as the proxy server. I usually have to set my browser's proxy to that server. When I run fasttest from my station I got this message: Socket error # 10065. No Route to host

Why don't you supply a connection setup dialog box like Fastcheck? It can be used as a double check tools in case a user type a wrong proxy connection at one's browser/email client.

This isn't making sense. How can ipconfig be returning DNS results different to what are actually in use? I've never heard of ipconfig being wrong before...

Any ideas? Do you have some kind of odd port 53 routing thing happening...?

OK, I see why that's happening. I'll post back with a fix shortly.

Many users have their browser set up by someone else and do not know this info. I don't want them to have to look it up.

I've just implemented a new version that uses the IE control to do the HTTP stuff, so the proxy settings are used automatically. I'll post it after doing some more testing.

==========

My firewall (Agere's Outpost) popped up a warning asking me whether to allow or not. I clicked 'Allow Once', but by then it had failed the ICMP test. I kept clicking on 'Allow Once' and some things passed, but others failed - I think mostly due to timeouts. (Most programs wait long enough for me to click 'allow once' but fasttest didn't seem to).

Btw, fastmail does work fine for me (using OE 5) - but my firewall's configured to allow OE reasonable access.

Here's my log.
It says my browser is IE 6, which is not right. My default browser is Opera 6.02
I'm defining 'default browser' as the program that opens .htm files. I case Opera doesn't attach itself to .htm--maybe I should use .html instead...

Gee that's interesting... You've got a routing loop there on the way to ZoneEdit... That could really screw with DNS. I wonder if that's got something to do with the intermittent DNS problems some people report?

Any ideas? Do you have some kind of odd port 53 routing thing happening...?


It's a bug I have noticed in Win98.

When you used a static IP address and assign a DNS and then change from static to dynamically assigned, the static DNS server you have entered is still there, eventhough it is not used. WinIPCfg displays the same thing.

The only port 53 routing thing I had was when I entered those 4 iptable commands to reject udp and tcp datagrams with a destination of the NS win98 displayed in both the INPUT and FORWARDING "chains" just to make extra sure. This was just to make sure it did not contact this NS.
I knew it is using my DNS because how else should it resolve stuff like www.klose or stuff like that? And tcpdump also shows a lot of traffic between root servers and various nameservers every time I try to resolve an address with the laptop.

I have my own DNS server running (a bind 9) on 192.168.133.1. I have been running one ever since I had trouble with the provider's DNSes years ago: In previous times, Linux was unable to get the dynamically assigned DNS, so I just had a static one set. Occasionly this statically set one would no longer work. With the upgrade "recently" (now already quite a few months back) when Redhat 7.1 came out, (most packages are now either compiled from source or are from 7.3-skipjack beta) and the new server I kept this. Going from bind4 to bind9 was a change, but I wanted the auto dns updates from machines added to dhcp. I add and remove machines quite frequently, eventhough it is just a small home network.

Odd. Anyway, I've just released 0.032 which uses .html instead of .htm, which hopefully might work. I still don't know why .htm isn't working... FYI, I'm using the technique described here: http://community.borland.com/article/0,1410,26083,00.html
