KL Commuter’s answers:

The same thing is happening on my mobile iPhone. I get the following messages: “Cannot Get Mail – The connection to the server failed.” “Yahoo! Server Unavailable – Please try again later.” “Cannot Send Mail – The connection to the outgoing server “apple.smtp.mail.yahoo.com” failed. Additional Outgoing Mail Servers can be configured in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars.”

What is going on and how do I fix it?

Betty asks…

What is an Apache Server?

I thought there were Windows servers and Linux servers, so then what are Apache servers? Is it software, hardware, What is it???

KL Commuter’s answers:

Apache is a web server which you can run on your computer whereas windows/linux servers are just operating systems which are optimized to be used as servers(dealing with multiple requests and responding to them).

Maria asks…

Performance -Database access from different server ?

Hi I am trying to establish a database connection between 2 servers i.e. accessing a database ( 1 view only -destination) from source server . there are two approaches 1. Open the ports so that the source server can directly hit the database server.
2. Can it be possible to create a view on my destination server which will refresh itself from source database after like 1 hour or so.
Second question is which will be a better option performance wise so that my destination database will recieve less hits.

KL Commuter’s answers:

If it is SQL Server, you should be able to create a linked server and use the view like it was on the destination server always up to date.

Nancy asks…

my server address for yahoo account?

my server address

KL Commuter’s answers:

There are two sets of settings for Yahoo email. The first assumes that you are allowed POP3 access on the FREE accounts. Many of us have to use the PAID Yahoo Mail Plus accounts in order to access POP3 facilities, in which case the second set of settings would apply.

1) Yahoo! Mail Settings (if allowed)

Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

2) Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) – plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) – plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

If you need to upgrade, go to Options > Mail Plus > Upgrade now > enter your payment details for $19.99 annual fee to complete the process.

KL Commuter’s answers:

Owner of server has a sort of pseudo-white list on the server. Its using an odd thing in bukkit that makes you have to have “permission” instead of actually saying your not on the whitelist. Otherwise its the same as a white list

Server Rack

Steven asks…

how do the minecraft server host work i mean like how do they keep the servers up 24/7?

KL Commuter’s answers:

The better ones buy the hardware for the server, and take it to what’s called a collocation facility. They’re entire buildings full of nothing but server racks.

Each server in those racks have their own dedicated internet connection, power, and cooling. They are kept up all the time, and when one of the usually thousands of servers goes down, they send a technician to make sure that it goes right back online.

For Minecraft servers ran by normal people on normal computers, they use software to run the server in the background, and they just leave the computers online. It works the same as the way web servers work. You just have a program running that you can’t see unless you know where to look.

Lizzie asks…

What other thing do server computers do?

This link is an example:

Don’t they have other use, can you use them for saving files, playing games just like a normal CPU?

KL Commuter’s answers:

They’re usually the same components as desktop machines running much the same operating systems.

Most machines sold as servers, though, tend to differ in their physical shape – they don’t come in a large beige box but the components are arranged to fit a slot in standard racks so you can have large numbers of them in a relatively small space.

Some are so-called blade servers, where you can plug in a computer-on-a-board into a standard socket which then shares other resources like disk.

Servers will also tend to have a different balance of memory, disk and CPU power from desktop machines – often less CPU, more memory and oodles more disk. So in that sense, CPU intensive applications like games wouldn’t run so well.

Also, they won’t usually have a display, so playing a game would be tricky! They may not even have a socket to plug a display into. They certainly wouldn’t have a specialized graphics card which so many games rely on – essentially offloading some of the tough work of graphics rendering to a separate computer on the graphics card.

Mandy asks…

if i bought a server computer, could i use it for everyday use?

ive been looking at this for a while and want to get it soon when i get enough money if i know i can use it for everyday browsing, server use, and just about anything i want.

KL Commuter’s answers:

Yes, but it doesn’t mention the video card, which is probably not very good by desktop standards. You’ll probably need to purchase and install one. And as has been mentioned, it will likely run very hot and use a tron of power. You’ll probably need a dedicated room with cooling or a cooled rack to keep it from overheating. You may also want to ask the seller about the power draw and whether it requires 220 – you may need to have electrical work done to use it in a residential environment.

Joseph asks…

What do you think of my online web hosting business?

its at www.sa-eg.com, FREE CPANEL HOSTING, PAID CPANEL HOSTING please tell me what you think
Please, I need ideas on how to improve!

KL Commuter’s answers:

Let me put it this way… Personally I get all my hosting from 1&1 Internet Ltd (a division of UNITED INTERNET) who have one of the most powerful webserver datacentres on the planet (2 if you include the one in Kansas for 1and1.com as well as the one in Slough for 1and1.co.uk – probably even more if you include the Germany side of their operations too).

Their UK Datacentre alone contains 660 server racks, that can hold a maximum capacity of 30,000 – 40,000 high-end, custom built webservers just in one building.

These webservers are hooked up to the internet via a 40 Gbit internet connection.

In case of power failure, they have 5x 16 cylinder diesel generators (that could power a small town) to keep their servers running.

Upon signing-up to their “business” hosting package back in January 2002 they threw in £400 worth of FREE software, including NETOBJECTS FUSION (the latest version of which costs about £125 on Amazon UK).

And to save me having to go on, a visit to http://www.1and1.co.uk/?k_id=3794345 will show you’re pretty much wasting your time.

Paul asks…

How can i downdoal fastly on internet ?

Say answer.

KL Commuter’s answers:

1) Subscribe to the best ISP package you can afford

2) Use MOZILLA FIREFOX as your main browser… I noticed it makes a HUGE difference over Internet Explorer – even on my old 133MHz Pentium1 TOSHIBA laptop (before I stood on it, and broke the screen around this time last year)

3) Have the phone company give your phone line a good check over to make sure there isn’t any “line noise” as that slows it down (at least used to be a BIG problem with Dial-up)….. Also try not to have too many devices hooked up to the phoneline in your house.

4) Google do an Internet Accelerator – there are others, but in my experience they don’t do anything other than install spyware / adware / malware onto your computer (which slows your connection down, rather than speeds it up)

5) Give your computer a good check over @
http://pcpitstop.com/pcpitstop/default.asp and optimise the settings. Re-check regularly to keep it in top condition.

6) Download these programs to clean up your computer, and keep it that way:
SPYBOT: Search & Destroy


AVIRA Anti-VIR Personal Edition Classic

ZONEALARM Firewall (Free edition)

7) Try to strip down the number of programs you have connected to the Internet at once, for instance if you run all the major Instant messengers such as AIM, ICQ, MSN, YIM + Google Talk all at the same time, it’s possible these days to strip them down, like….
ICQ can also accept messages & contacts from AOL Messenger

And you can accept MSN Messages & contacts on YAHOO! Messenger (though doesn’t always seem to work properly…. At least it didn’t when first became possible)

8) Remember that some websites can get busy at times, and the more people trying to use it at once, the slower access to it gets (due to the load on both the servers, and the amount of bandwidth available to the datacentre) – and not all webmasters choose THE best webhosting.
Personally I run all my websites from the hosting provided by http://www.1and1.co.uk/?k_id=3794345 on one of their High-end UNIX/LINUX webservers (they’ve got space for 660 server racks, which can hold over 30,000 webservers just in one building)…. All of which are hooked up to the internet via a 40 Gbit ‘net connection (and in case the power goes down, they’ve got 5 diesel generators that could power a small town) – so it’d take something pretty special to slow my sites down.. Especially as at present I only get about 100-120MB of Data / bandwidth traffic a month (out a max allowed 40GB, i think it currently is for the package I’m on).

Server Rack

Maria asks…

Assembling server for first time. please help !!!?

I am trying to assemble a server for first time. please let me know what exactly do i need for this and what are the different option do i have.

I am looking for server with following details

1) 10 sata hard drives of 250GB each
2) Another server with same specification (for 1st server exact backup) and want to network them with each other

please let me know (please bear with me if any question seems stupid !!! )
1) what kind of software i would need for this.
2) how can i do networking between these two servers
3) which server case would be appropriate ?
4) how much and what kind of ram memory would be sufficient ?
5) what other components do i need ?

please send me any useful links which describe how to assemble one ..

Regards and thanks in advance


KL Commuter’s answers:

First off you don’t want your data storage on the same machine as your actual server. You want to look into a SAN(storage area network). As far as the servers I would suggest getting a few blade servers that meet your hardware specifications. You don’t have to assemble them and they mount nicely into a rack. The brand is not as important as the hardware specs.

Then look into an expandable SAN something that starts with say 2Tb but can be added onto.

Once you have those things you need a rack to mount them on.

Software I would suggest Windows server 2008.

To network them together you want to use some kind of core switch setup, preferably with routable switches. This setup will also make networking in the other non-server machines in the network easier.

You will not need to buy cases if you get blade servers.

As far as hardware requirements you haven’t given enough details for that. I would need to know how much information the machines would be handling, number of other machines on the network, etc.

As far as other components you will need a firewall of some sort, I have had good experience with SonicWall in the past. Also you may want to look into wireless access points, if you go with a sonicwall firewall I suggest getting sonicwall access points.

Sandra asks…

240V Server fans speeding up?

I have a server rack fan and it requires 240V to run it’s has a 10A fuse if I replace the fuse with a 13A fuse will the fans go faster? Also if I use the fans as a wind turbine will they produce 240V ?

KL Commuter’s answers:

No and no. And if you had to ask this do NOT mess with electricity you will kill yourself or someone else, or cause a serious fire.

Donna asks…

Can I use SATA hard disk drives on my DL380 rack server?

KL Commuter’s answers:

I don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t be able to. Is this an older generation of the DL380? Do you not have hot-swappable SATA drives? If your motherboard does not currently support SATA, you may have to add a PCI card.

Paul asks…

I have IBM x3200 m3 i want ot upgrade my HDD from 500 gb to 2 tb can i also used my old HDD tray or change it?

i-m using x3200 m3 server and i want it to become a server for my cctv camera it only have 500gb HDD so i want to upgrade it from 500gb to 2tb i just want to ask if i need also to change the HDD tray
if im gonna extend my capacity and from 2tb to 8tb i need to buy same HDD tray for my new HDD?

KL Commuter’s answers:

The IBM x3200 M3 server is capable of supporting up to 8 TB of storage in the form of 4 x 2TB hard drives and should use the same mounting brackets that are included in the server. Be careful to save the screws that are used to mount the hard drives in the trays, as they are flush mount to fit properly inside the server rack. Using other hard drive screws may be too large to fit back into the slots. Also keep in mind that if you replace your 500gb hard drive, you will need to reinstall your operating system and drivers onto one of the hard drives.

Another point to consider when adding multiple hard drives into a CCTV solution, is to map specific cameras to different hard drives to even the work load across the drives. GeoVision software will allow you to do this and much more, and is available on www.apexcctv.com. ApexCCTV is a great source for anything CCTV related, and their products are backed by life time technical support.

KL Commuter’s answers:

I’m really sorry but I can’t help you with only the ipconfig information.
Although I can’t help you I would recommend for you to type in the ip address rather than….
If that doesn’t work than I would consider checking whether if you a DNS. I honestly didn’t see a DNS..
If that didn’t work than I would think that maybe that ip address already existed (
Well like I said, I really can’t help you out like this. If any of these things work u let me know, please. Good Luck.

Ruth asks…

How to I make a minecraft server on a website IP?

I have made one on my laptop, its just too slow. My website has 20GB of storage and i want to make it on that. Or is it possible to put it onto Dropbox? I want to make one that is better than what my laptop has and i want it to be on all the time. I have mineshafter installed for it. I just want to know how to make it on a REAL website IP. Thanks!

(i cannot find anything that will help)

KL Commuter’s answers:

You can’t put a minecraft server on your website, or on dropbox. You need to have a virtual private server or dedicated host. You can use NO-IP to get a DNS redirector for your IP address

I.e. People input server.no-ip.com and it redirects them to your IP

Daniel asks…

Is using the IP for a minecraft server unsafe?

I should use my (IPv4) computer’s IP address to run a minecraft server. I just wanna know if any person can use that to actually hack my computer. I mean, is it safe?

KL Commuter’s answers:

It is not the safest thing in the world to put your public IP address in the world. It gives a hacker a place to start because they know a server is there, and that it holds data valuable to the owner. Using proper safeguards like a Firewall, Access control list, and very strong admin authentication (passwords of doom) is a very healthy start. However, it is not always enough. I am a network engineer and study security for IT communications systems and I have had my minecraft server (not the minecraft service, but the physical server) hacked once so far. With each hack I am learning more about security. My advice is to not place anything on the server you are not ready to lose, or pay a professional host to accept the risk for you. Another option is to run a LAN only server. I am not a professional host, but I want to get into it. If you like, please hop on my website and let me know your needs in regards to a minecraft server. I may be able to work something out with you. I am easiest to reach in the forums.

Server-Side Static IP w/ ICS Help Needed?

I’ve got a fairly generic Windows 7 box with Internet Connection Sharing enabled sharing the internet connection coming from its WiFi dongle to a small wired network I’ve created. On the client side I’ve got, as per Microsoft’s instructions online, their settings configured as follows:

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Router Address:
DNS Address:

I really want to get a static IP up server-side, but for the life of me, I can’t find any documentation as to what addresses I should use, so I’m going to take a shot in the dark, here.

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Router Address: (Wireless Router’s IP Address)
DNS Address: & (Wireless Router’s DNS Addresses)

What really bothers me about this is that the computer’s IP and routers IP are on two totally different network segments. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Windows ICS mentions that it uses locked-in for the server. I can’t imagine any way around it, but I might at least try your suggestion.

KL Commuter’s answers:

Yeah, the octets have to match up. The x.x.0.x and x.x.1.x wont work together in this way. Your subnet tells you that the first 3 octets MUST match. This wont work. But win 7 isnt a server, so not sure why you want to do that. Make it simple and just turn off DHCP on your router. Now if your router IP address is….that should also control your DNS, etc.

So input on the client, subnet mask is corredct, and DNS is

That should do it.

All it is is DHCP! Dont over think this.

Good luck
