    I like almost anything related to computers. Game server hosting, experimenting with Linux, etc.
  1. It says "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation.
  2. Ok, I disabled IPv6 for my adapter, although it continues on trying to acquire network address (even after I tried repairing it), and the ipconfig report for my ethernet adapter still reports a set of IP address and subnet values at
  3. Is there any point to using IPv6 in a home network, let alone any LAN network? I suppose I might as well disable it.
  4. I suppose I should have been more specific, sorry. I'm running the actual "game server" (a Garry's Mod server) on a windows computer, which happens to be on the same network. Not much overhead from that. Then on the other hand, I have my Ubuntu (Mint) server, which is acting as a "Fast Download" server. Essentially, the game directs clients to that server to download various content, I.E. maps, models, materials, etc. All it is is an apache webserver, with a normal directory holding the content. I was just hoping that it was possible for me to up the speed there (and tweaks for Apache2 known?) I'm not sure about NAT. That seems pretty dangerous, and anyways, that only makes the difference of a closed or open port :\ (So either it would be accessible or not.)
  5. It's funny that you mention that, because all I have to do is purchase an ethernet cord. That's it, then all I have to do is thread it into an empty wall socket. I just haven't pushed myself enough to go out and buy the cord :\
  6. I think I used a different technique awhile ago, (doesn't bz2 delete the uncompressed file once it's done?) But thanks anyways
  7. Umm... no :\ I copied and pasted the only ethernet adapter I have, as well as all information regarding it. Doubt it, my ip remains on the local network.
  8. Nope... it's ethernet. My router, which it's connected to, does have a functioning DHCP service, although both IPs that I have assigned to this NIC are static. @zenia: Traffic is still flowing through the router. I think the only purpose of entering my outside IP into the NIC's configuration is so that specific program can properly broadcast my IP. If people can hack me from that server just because of this new configuration, then I think there's a larger problem
  9. Alright, here's the pertinent information: Ethernet adapter Local Area Network:Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : fe80::219:dbff:fee7:4e00%6Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : That's weird, I wonder why one IP is specified as :\ I certainly didn't do that.
  10. Hm, that is pretty bad. It is a good thing that all inbound ports are blocked by my router unless specifically opened by a program on my side.Fortunately, it turns out that my ISP gives out a version of Norton 360 for free, so I think I ought to take advantage of that :)Thanks.
  11. Ya, true... I'm sure there must be some sort of application for this idea. I.E security software?
  12. Oh, absolutely. I want to be able to buy an economy laptop 5 years from now with 1.2TB of system memory installed
