Arteman and the boss have been in France for a few weeks!
A quiet time relaxing with our friends, enjoying the wine, the food and the sun in Provence
No blogs either – mainly because of a computer problem which took a week to resolve – I really must bring Sergie ( the techie in the basement ) on holiday next time!!!
Solution to the problem “ firefox is unable to locate the server at ******** “ when logging on to a strange network
It drove me mad !!! The management of our estate in France “ improved ” the WIFI system ( which worked fine for me before ) and for days I got the message “ firefox is unable to locate the server at ******** “
I tried everything – unsuccessfully !!!
I finally stumbled on a work around
Go to “ Start “ “ Control Panel “ Administrative Tools “ “ Services “ and stop the DNS Client
Then try to log on
It works for me !!!
You may need to restart the DNS while you browse – and I have to turn it off again to log out of the rather bizarre system in France
