Ever made a phonecall and got an engaged tone ?...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Logging on

Maybe you've tried it again and still got the engaged tone.

Couple of days later, you meet the owner of said telephone and mention that they were engaged repeatedly when you rang. It then turns out they were in at that time and their phone would've switched to answer machine had it even rung, which it didn't.

Then you figure out you've dialled the wrong number.

Check what you are typing. Pay particular attention to what occurs AFTER the dots.

Check the link for the site by entering just it's name into Google (not the entire address line with the dots).

Give it some time, servers can be engaged too, if too many users are connecting at the same time.

If it is a very old link that you have not used for a long time, it may not exist anymore. (Google might have the new valid link)

A couple of checks

by Jacky Howe In reply to Logging on

This information appears on the Details tab of the error message in Event Viewer. The error code (displayed as a decimal) and error description fields further identify the reason for the failure. Evaluate the error code in Event Viewer.

Error code 1355 (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted)
This error code might indicate a fault or improper configuration with name resolution (DNS). Use nslookup to confirm you can resolve addresses of the domain controllers in the user domain. Use Networking troubleshooting procedures to further diagnose the problem (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92706 ).
