all of a sudden, I'm getting a 10093 error when I try to connect from my desktop to my wife's computer. I can connect from hers to mine, or to hers from another machine (so it isn't her install). I tried using ipconfig /flushdns, but that didn't work either. The full message is:
LogMeIn Remote Control Client Copyright (C) 2003-2009 LogMeIn, Inc. Patented and patents pending. Host reports version 982. Client version 586.
Connecting... DNS lookup failed for joanne-computer-nbqylizlcs.app10.logmein.com Connection failed. [No error description found] Error code: 10093
I also tried this in safe mode, logged in as Administrator and under my regular name. I've tried it with Firefox and IE (8), so at this point I'm sure it's some wierd Windows problem. Everything else works: I can browse, ftp, up/download. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks for the suggestion. The problem is, the winsock seems to be working - with everything else. I tried using "ShowMyPC" and it worked without a problem. I even tried the MS Messenger Remote Assist, and that worked, too.
It seems to be unique to LMI Free. Perhaps I should uninstall and re-install it again? Doesn't make sense, though, since the problem is with connecting to OTHER computers, not mine. And I thought that was via a plug-in. If it doesn't work in either Firefox or IE, then there goes the corrupt plug-in theory!
Okay, that comment about Java - the one browser I didn't try yet was Google Chrome. Guess what? It works! So, it's not my winsock after all. I'm going to uninstall the Logmein add ons for Firefox, and see what happens. I'll update afterwards.
