actually you wrote windoz sp2 ;) and i fixed it to windows sp2... it just gave me another good point to add to the guidelines. :) it was the only thing that came into my mind to place as an example. Nothing that was pointed towards you! :)and about the settings... well that differ from city to city. But I will start a thread and put up under the Chandigarh tab! :) But if someone is configuring his network, how can he check the settings online! :lol:
