      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Software Help (Connection Host)

5 posts in this topic

ok here's the deal(This is for my Mom's Dual Screen Computer)

 

My mom has said that her PcAnywhere 10.5 from Symantec is not connecting to her computer at work and I tried to help. She told me ever since my cuzin set the computer to only show the right hand (secondary) screen as one monitor (since the main one could barely even turn on) , she says pcANYWHERE problems have been occuring on both her work and home computers. [i really don't think changing the 2-screen to 1-main - screen could cause this ]

 

The symptoms are: she can't connect from either her Work IP or her home IP using pcANYWHERE, it says "Unable to attach to Specified Device ( Communications Error)" , says that whenever she tries to open pcANYWHERE up. she also tried it from work, doesn't work either. she thinks it is a connection or IP problem, so we took a look at the IPs, we changed and expiremented, still same error.

 

Here's what i really think is the cause, i've been playing Runescape for a few weeks (she didn't use pcANYWHERE between those weeks i was playing) around 2 days after my cuzin set the monitor to one-screen. now maybe i was thinking 'does runescape change IP's or do something that's causing the problem or some of the problem? ' i keep thinking, is that the problem why she can't connect, since Runescape used the IP ports? cuz since i'm not good with computers at all i see this message that says "you last logged on from adsl-(some IP here, starts with 66, me or my mom is not familiar with this IP, so we think it is our provider) - dslextreme.com [ I went to the website, i think its our internet service provider] the IP i saw in the link really worried me, maybe it replace a port or something wtih that port so thats why can't connect? or is runescape just using the host thingy to play the game? rite now i don't know what to do...

 

right now it cud be anything, hosts or IP problem, it's getting stressful tho, (btw, i really don't think it is Spyware : adware: virus, etc: problem, since she had pcANYWHERE for more than one year, and she managed to fix those problems easily) so it cud be the fact that the Monitors Are changed (prob. not) , runescape doing something to the IP or hosts or changing some stuff or settings around (i.e., mixing an IP) , (most likely yes or no), or something else involoving her work comp (maybe it changed, or got some probs)

 

Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated, since i can't play runescape until she gets the pcANYWHERE fixed, and i greatly feel the stress she feels in putting so much effort into getting it fixed.

Ok Actually if it's a bit too complicated to read or explain,the question i only want to know is can any experts tell me if RUNESCAPE is actually the problem?

 

 

 

 

P.S. (I forgot to mention something )

 

 

runescape always mentions logging in earlier as "adsl- 66- 51- 193- 55. dsIextreme .c0m. [really dont know what that means, using that host?] (put I and 0 purposely, replace with l and 0 ifu want)

That is the IP of my Internet Service Provider, DSL extreme (looked up in NetTools) . i used TraceRoute from NetTools and 66 . 51 . 193. 55 wasn't exactly traced, there were other numbers like that, but none of their hosts were familiar, so i was particaully interested in this one:

 

17 Time-out

18 Time-out

19 Time-out

20 Destination host unreachable

 

 

I was assuming one of those was mine, probably number 20.... since earlier that day i used Trace Route on the home IP my mom usually uses to connect to her work IP, (i dunno if it's my computer IP, i looked on some websites, said it was different, must the home IP we USE was gotten from typing "ipconfig/all and looking at our 'Eternet Adapter Local Connection IP Adress' .

 

I traced that and guess what it said? Destination Route Unreachable.

After that, I traced my mom's IP she use to access PcANYWHERE and same message: Destination Route Unreachable

 

 

So I try changing the IP to destination host again. nothing works. now i REALLY Think the problem is Runescape, if its not, please PLEASE PLEASE tell me, i really want to continue the game

Ok i also have another explanation if this may break the problem

 

 

My mom jsut called one hour ago saying the pc anywhere problem may be because of a ROUTER. she said somebody reset the router and thats why she can't connect using pcANYWHERE (well, she doesn't REALLY know, she's the only one in her company that uses pcANYWHERE, she does all the paper work) , so is that a possible suspect / explanation? I read on Symantec Support that the router may be the case, and if it 's not, well runescape might be the only problem, but i'm pretty sure now it's the Router.

b.u.m.p

 

 

 

can any Pcanywhere experts please help. Maybe cuz some files associated with the svc host (usually associated with pcanywhere) aren't on? (winpatrol detects some as MAnual Start or not Running/disabled)
