Strange problem

I have been having some issues with my cable modem dropping the internet connection occasionally. Whenever it does so my SageClient cannot connect to the SageServer. This is very strange since both the server and client are plugged into the same switch and are still able to see each other thru MS networking and the connection to the cable modem via a router is thru a third connection on that switch.

Just for clarity the connections are: coax from ISP to cable modem, CAT5 from cable modem to router, CAT5 from router to switch, CAT5 from switch to Sageserver, client, and 4 other PC's.

Also, I can duplicate the issue by just unplugging the cable modem.

Any ideas?

Just a big guess, but I'm guessing since the cable internet connection is not working, DNS is not working properly, therefore it can't resolve the names correctly.

You could probably add entries in your host file on both machines with the relevant pc name and corresponding IP address. That way both pcs can resolve each other's name and you won't lose the connection between the server and the client.

The host file is found under c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

For example
?.?.?.? (your ip) machine name

One other thing. You will need to hard-code the ip addresses of both machines so they won't change.

Hope that helps

I don't think that is the issue here since I use PAT and private IP addresses on the inside and I run my own DNS internally. It should not matter anyway since an always on internet connection is not a requirement for Sage. I also use static IP's on both the Sage server and client. This is really a strange problem!
