Strange interaction

Post by matelich »

A coworker of mine has a very odd side effect recently from playing BZFlag (we're currently using 2.0.4, server linux, client Windows XP). After playing BZ, he can no longer access Outlook or any of our network shares that are authenticated on the company domain, he can't even access Outlook Web Access from his other windows box. This lasts for around an hour.

Any ideas? IT kinda forgot about him once the BZ connection was discovered, and since playing at work isn't necessarily encouraged, we're not going to bring it up.

He's not logged into the domain, just accesses it.

Oh one other thing. I can't verify the exact timeline, but the problem may have appeared in conjunction with IT deploying SMS.

Thanks

You could try doing a Repair operation on the network device after you play and see if that clears it up.

Call Desktop Support, from what I saw at my work experience in an IT department this week, they've probably been playing bz with you for months.
