Re: Piedmont Election - Uploading results and Network connections
I am heading out to help Jeff this morning resolve these problems if I can.
I agree that he should kill the netbuei, ipx/spx, etc. although each
protocol has specific uses and shouldn't conflict with TCP/IP. I think the
real issue is how the TCP/IP address is resolved. DNS, DHCP, and plain host
lookup can be used. I think just hardcoding the IPs and resolving them via
hosts table will be the most expedient solution.
