Subject [users@httpd] Re: Can't open files bigger than 0.5kb
Date Tue, 16 Mar 2004 01:00:55 GMT
Isn't ifconfig a linux command? Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time 
setting up the wireless card in Mandrake, so I'm restricted to win2k.

However, I tried changing the MTU value in windows register, but it didn't 
Then I changed MTU value in router from 1442 to 1492, and that caused the 
ADSL connection to go down, showing "ACTIVATION" in online status. I 
quickly changed the value back to 1442 before the other users came and hit 
me with sticks :-). The connection got back to normal.

But now it is even worse, I can't access / by typing my internal ip address 
or localhost or Localhost is even redirected to

Anyway, I didn't change MTU value after the first (good) install of Apache, 
so that doesn't seem to be the problem. If it worked once, why shouldn't it 
work now?

I'm starting to give up, windows is really messed up. I'm probably 
formating the drive in the next 2/3 days...

Thank you,
Luís Brás

PS.: I sent a message to the list replying to Schalk Neethling but I forgot 
to change the subject of the reply, so there is a message with the subject 
"Re: users Digest 15 Mar 2004 01:26:03 -0000 Issue 1451". I'm sorry for 
that, won't happen again. I'm   pasting the two messages below:

Thanks for checking Schalk.

But the downloaded files weren't corrupt? If they werent, then you're the 
first one to accomplish that. All the other persons that tried get 0 byte 
files. Could you try with one of these files and check the size and/or try 
to open them, please? -> contains text, 1.65kb -> contains formated text, 127kb

Thank you!
