Re: Animator problem

Alan Sewards <alan.sewards@...>

The event seems from the log to be that the machine detected another
machine with the same IP address on the network and disabled the interface.
This does not make sense as the other two machines have not been turned off
for weeks, and the network was working fine when I turned off the machine in
question the night before. I have had endless trouble with this particular
machine running XP Home in respect of networking, in fact I have never
succeeded in getting it to work properly. It will communicate with the other
machines but will not let them access it. So when I got the problem I just
went though the various steps of checking the IP address, re-enabling the
interfaces, etc. When this did not work, I tried using the wizard, and so
on, round a very familiar loop. finally the wizard produced a configuration
which worked and I could ping and thus access the rest of the network.


Best regards - Alan

What happened to cause the network to fail and what did you do to get the
network back up? Any messages? Have you checked the event logs?

|Subject: [MSG-1] Animator problem
|I have run into a puzzling problem with Animator (v1.1.8.34).
|Yesterday on boot up my main XP computer had lost the network
|connection to the other two, one XP running 24/7 with MSG1
|reception and MDM, the other an IBM notebook logging my
|weather station data. I run Animator on the main XP machine as
|it bogs down the MSG machine with disk activity. It took me
|half a day to get the network back, and now it is back,
|Animator rarely works on that machine. It has to go across the
|network for the image data of course, and this part works OK
|or seems to, as it says getting images and making animation,
|but the Animation screen remains blank. The animations
|themselves are there, of about the right size (88 MB), but
|when run on Windows Media Player they are blank also. If I
|hold the mouse pointer on the screen it sometimes says things
|like "43 images animated of the 44 requested". It has the look
|of a network problem but I cannot see what. Data is being
|transferred as the bad image editor shows the images, it seems
|to be the animation part that is going wrong.
|Anyone any thoughts?
