Damned computers…

30 10 2008

While I’ve been away, somehow my internal network has lost connection to the server, and I can’t access it from outside either. The PC Guru guys are on it, but some things will have to wait until I get home on Sunday as my husband hasn’t got the confidence to do some of the server stuff. They think it’s due to a Microsoft patch applied a few weeks ago to plug a security hole, as they’ve seen these symptoms before. Here’s hoping their solution works…

Update 3 November 2008: Seems it wasn’t anything to do with software on the server — the network card had died! There was another in the machine, so once I activated that with PC Guru’s help, everything worked fine. Another network card is on order as a spare in case this ever happens again.
