Windows XP Name Resolution

Eric Hanke

Greetings fellow IT Engineers:

I ran accross an interesting issue today with a client laptop and name
resoltuion.

Here is the scenario:

Sony Laptop, Windows XP Service Pack 3. With the exception of the default
text the LMHOSTS and HOSTS file are normal.

When the laptop tries to resolve any host, it always resolves to the same
PUBLIC ip address aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd.

For example. When the laptop is connected to my network, I am the IT
Professional, and tries to ping a name that I know does not exist, it replies
with the above IP address.

I went through the steps in
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457118.aspx#EBAA with no success.

Any ideas???

Sad to say it's not as easy as a malware program.

What is the LSP stack?

The IP address is the public (not even on the same network) web server
address...

Any ideas???

It would be a "help" is you could tel more about the problem you
have.

Also, the web server "belongs" to whom? You or the company that the
"laptop" was networked with? Several networks can have all their
"client" PCs all connect thur one "proxy" server or web site.

As for the LSP stack, consider this: a series of "protocols" assigned
to the network / network adapter on this PC. Used to control the
direction / access to other IP "connections."
