Hi, I don't use GMA but I use Outlook and most providers besides Gmail ally you to receive your own copies of emails. So you might want to think about going back to your Gmail address.

So, the subject says it all.  Do you use GMX with groups.io? If so, do you receive own messages? And if so, have you found a way to disable? Its kinda annoying me, to say the least.  Or shall I just get the trusty gmail?

Facebook and identified devices

Hi, I had to start a new facebook account due to something going on with my iSP modem and when I logged into facebook, I had to prove it was me with a copy of my State ID card.  When I enter the option on my new account, under settings and the security, the only options I have are remove and cancel.  But there are no select or preferred devices shown.  I am using m.facebook.com  on a windows xp machine running IE 8 and windoweyes 7.5.

Hi.

Tried a few rss readers, either not accessible, got a fatal error, so.

Tried three, not to my liking.

So, what do you use for a rss reader.

Just want to get audio podcasts, import, search, add and then check for updates.

What do you use on windows 10?

Thanks.

Hang outs are a feature of the Google Plus social media website.
Google Plus is like Facebook and Twitter combined. Hang outs are a
way for people to video chat similar to Skype and Facebook's video

Re: what would cause windows 7 to make my ftp server not receive login information?

Ron Canazzi
 

Hello Rashtron,

I used to run an old FTP server a while back. The only other possibility I can think of that Carlos and others haven't mentioned is the anti virus or anti malware program you are running. Could that have updated in the past few weeks and perhaps is somehow blocking the FTP server? Maybe someone else can comment on this. If this is true, you would have to dig around in these programs to find out if some port or ports are being blocked or perhaps some elements of the FTP server are being blocked.

On 9/22/2015 6:36 PM, ratshtron wrote:
oddly enough, as i said, the server was working just fine and nothing was changed at all as far as i know. i do have ports 20 and 21 forwarded to the local ip address of my computer and i have assigned an ip address so it doesn't change. going to see if the ftp server will work on my laptop and if it does i will probably have to reinstall windows 7 on to this system to correct the problem. thanks for your suggestions though.



Legend has it that on Tuesday 9/22/2015 05:05 PM, Carlos said:
----------------------------------------
A few things to consider. Are you behind a router? And if so, have you configured your machine to use a static IP address? Also, are the correct ports forwarded in your router? If the server is configured to use passive mode, then you will need to forward port 21 and another small range of ports, one per the total number of users you want to allow to connect to the server. Passive mode is recommended and the range of ports should generally not be fewer than about 50. For example, 50000 to 50050. If you have the server configured to work in active mode, then you will have to forward ports 20 and 21. Or port 990 instead of 21 in both cases if your server is configured for secure FTP over SSL/TLS. I understand that some of the above information may be obvious if you already know how to set up an FTP server, but there's only so much I can suggest since I don't know in actuality how much of this you're familiar with. Also, you said it was previously working and I have no way of knowing what changes you may have made to your system a couple of weeks ago. Did you add a new router or change routers for example? If you need help either configuring a static IP address or forwarding ports with your specific model, you should visit

It sounds like you may have turned Navigation Quick Keys on by mistake. The keystroke to toggle this on / off is, Insert / Jaws Key + Z.

Or, while you're in Word press, Insert / Jaws Key + V, to open Jaws' Quick Settings for Word.

Arrow down to, Navigation Quick Keys, & press the spacebar to uncheck it, if it's checked.

Tab to the, Okay button, & press enter to save / close.

To have turned Forms Mode off, you would have had to go into the Settings Center, & you would probably have remembered doing that.

A few things to consider. Are you behind a router? And if so, have you configured your machine to use a static IP address? Also, are the correct ports forwarded in your router? If the server is configured to use passive mode, then you will need to forward port 21 and another small range of ports, one per the total number of users you want to allow to connect to the server. Passive mode is recommended and the range of ports should generally not be fewer than about 50. For example, 50000 to 50050. If you have the server configured to work in active mode, then you will have to forward ports 20 and 21. Or port 990 instead of 21 in both cases if your server is configured for secure FTP over SSL/TLS. I understand that some of the above information may be obvious if you already know how to set up an FTP server, but there's only so much I can suggest since I don't know in actuality how much of this you're familiar with. Also, you said it was previously working and I have no way of knowing what changes you may have made to your system a couple of weeks ago. Did you add a new router or change routers for example? If you need help either configuring a static IP address or forwarding ports with your specific model, you should visit

Subject: [TechTalk] what would cause windows 7 to make my ftp server not receive login information?


Carlos, this is a very strange problem and it just started about two weeks ago. i have an ftp server running on my computer and it was working just fine till about two weeks ago. i was running filezilla ftp server and thought that something got messed up in the configuration so i removed it and reinstalled with same problem happening. i even switched back to slimftp ftp server and it shows to be running but when i try to log on, i get the 530 error incorrect login information and the log doesn't register that i even accessed the server. i have done a port check with canyouseme.org and the service is seen on port 21. i am thinking that something has gotten changed in my windows 7 32bit configuration but cannot figure out what. would have any ideas? thanks.

Re: what would cause windows 7 to make my ftp server not receive login information?

Carlos
 

If you are in fact using a Dynamic DNS provider, one way to make sure that it is not the cause of the problem is to try accessing the FTP server directly using your external IP address.

If you are using a Dynamic DNS/domain provider, then you might also want to check that everything is configured and working correctly on their end.

hmmm, that would be nice, but somehow when this system was installed, the windows restore points were turned off and therefore i do not have any. i thought of that earlier and discovered i didn't have any, lol!

my http server still works though at http://okie.sytes.net along with my personal email server.

You might want to try System Restore if you have a restore point going back that far before resorting to the extreme of reinstalling Windows.

oddly enough, as i said, the server was working just fine and nothing was changed at all as far as i know. i do have ports 20 and 21 forwarded to the local ip address of my computer and i have assigned an ip address so it doesn't change. going to see if the ftp server will work on my laptop and if it does i will probably have to reinstall windows 7 on to this system to correct the problem. thanks for your suggestions though.
