Get Important Data While Chatting in Gtalk from Google Talk Guru

Google Talk Guru is an experimental service to provide important Search Results (may be most common search results ) in Gtalk itself. The concept is like you are chatting with your friend in Gtalk and you want to know the current status of your favorite sports or the weather in a city at the same time. You do not need to go to Search by leaving the messenger to obtain this information. Google Talk Guru will tell you the current status of your favorite sports or the weather details in Gtalk itself. To get this service you should invite Google Talk Guru to chat with you. You can do it by login to Gtalk and invite to chat with you. You can use specific commands to obtain results from it. The list of commands provided below.

According to this, if you want to get weather details of Delhi, you can type it as weather Delhi. You will get the current weather details from Google Talk guru. In the same way you can get definition of any word by using the command Define. Once you saved in your contact list, you can use this service at any time. If you want to define a word for example PC, you can simply do it here by typing define PC. Guru will define the word PC on chat window instantly.

Here you are opening another chat window while you are chatting with other contacts. In this window, you can ask the questions you want to search on Google. You will get the answers automatically. So the major advantage of using this feature is freedom of distraction while chatting on messenger in case if you want to search for a detail on Google. In most cases you may need sudden details of currency conversion if you are chatting with a business contact from another country. This feature will immediately convert the current currency to desired currency with latest exchange rate. It will reduce your time to manually compute the conversion. Another use is to perform basic arithmetic operation. You can simply perform division, multiplication etc on chat window itself.

Compare LG Optimus 3D & HTC Sensation -Best Smart Phone Option

Both these phones (LG Optmius and HTC Sensation) have an element of 3D technology, though the LG’s pure 3D screen is more technologically forward thinking than the Sensation’s 3D graphics. However, the two are also part of the new generation of dual core phones – so let’s compare them.

Compare Processor of LG Optimus and HTC Sensation

The Optimus has a dual core 1GHz chip with 512mb of RAM whereas the Sensation is running 1.2GHz with 768mb of RAM. On paper and in real life the Sensation is the more powerful device and this does give it a lead. In real life both are very powerful and there is little in the way of lag in either machine, making this fact not so much of an issue.

Camera Quality

This does offer a different story; the  camera of Optmius is a notable 3D flasher, meaning it has two lenses for recording in 3D. Both can record 1080p, though the Optimus also records 3D in 720p for play on the screen. The LG though does have a 5mp as opposed to the Sensation’s 8mp camera for stills. This makes the Sensation a better still life camera, though the 3D capabilities of the LG are very impressive.


Big screens are increasingly the rage and a 4.3in display is on show on both these phones. Obviously you will have gathered from what is previously mentioned that the Optimus has a 3D capable screen. However, the screen itself isn’t as capable as the HTC’s and displays images in 480x800 (WVGA) compared to the near 540x960 (qHD) of the Sensation. The display of Optmius is just not the amazing quality of the NOVA screen of late on other LG phones and so the Sensation offers better colours and clarity when viewing in 2D.

User Interface

LG are currently using Android 2.2 with the device, upgradable to Gingerbread 2.3 in time. The HTC is equipped straight up with the latest offering and is a dream to use, especially when the Sense interface made by HTC Sensation is taken on board. This really is a smooth operator and though the Optmius is good the HTC is better.

Is LG Optimus or HTC Sensation More Attractive ?

Looks wise the HTC is an attractive and very nice phone in the hand. Its uni-body aluminium style is strong yet not too heavy. It’s a simple style that works. The LG is also quite pretty but is heavier than the HTC, weighing in at 168g to the HTC’s 148g. It’s also noticeably thicker, though this may be caused by the 3D technology on board. It’s a stylish phone though and very typical of LG who generally offer fashionable devices.

FTP Error 503 Login Authentication Failed

Yesterday while trying to access my web hosting account, I received an error message "503 Login Authentication Failed". I have been using FireFTP as my ftp client for one year and I never faced such an issue. I had been using FileZilla before migrating to FireFTP but it never showed such a problem. However, I do not believe it is an issue with FireFTP. I have checked the username, password and host address once again but they are correct. I tried to login to web host account a few more times but received the same error. One time it showed a different alert with the same code. The new popup was "503 Login error". This tutorial explains the reasons and solution of "503 Login Authentication Failed". Since I was in a hurry, I couldn't troubleshoot the issue by myself. I deleted the entire FTP cache and entered the ftp server access details manually once again. This time I didn't face any trouble to access web server. I have saved the screenshot of the popup I received.

Today morning I started searching for more about this message. In many discussion forums, experts say "503 Login Authentication Failed" is due to the incorrect username or password. You may get the alert if the host address is typed wrongly. Another possibility is the usage of Caps Lock without knowing that key is on while entering username and password. Anyway after clearing the cache of my FTP program (deleted previously saved username, password and host address), I successfully logged in to my server ftp account.

Solution For FTP Error 503 Login Authentication Failed

The reason for 503 Login Authentication Failed: An FTP error occurred - cannot make connection to host is the incorrect File Transfer Protocol login information.

  • Port Number should be 21 (FTP server use port number 21 to transfer files).

  • Host address, ftp username and password should be correct

  • Make sure Caps Lock is turned off

  • If still the problem is not not fixed, clear the cache

PS: Clearing cache means delete all stored FireFTP usernames, passwords and host addresses. This procedure cannot be undone, so make sure you have the backup of the necessary details you entered.

TTL Expired in Transit - Reason and Solution

One of the error messages you may get as a part of ping operation is TTL Expired in Transit . Here we can check what does this error message "TTL Expired in Transit " actually mean and how to solve this error message. The basic reason to get this message is the Time To Live value set for a packet reduced to zero while traveling through a network. TTL (Time To Live) value is configured in a way to reduce by one when the packet pass through hops. It is because of avoiding any chance of infinite looping of packets. The main reason for the error message is faulty routing loop where the packet trapped in a loop till the Time To Live value expires. So the primary solution for the error message "TTL Expired in Transit" is to correct the routing table to avoid any loop in the table.

Want to Check Necessary Commands ?
Possible Reasons for TTL Expired in Transit

The major reasons for this error message are:
  1. Faulty Routing loop

  2. TTL Value of a packet is set very low

How to Solve TTL Expired in Transit

To fix this issue we should find the actual reason behind this error message. Follow the steps below to fix it.
  1. Use Tracert to Check the actual location of error

    First step you should do is to perform a tracert test and check the actual location of the error.

    If you are not sure about the working of this command, you may visit the link below.
    How to Use Tracert command

  2. Check Route Table for any infinite loop

    The major reason behind "TTL Expired in Transit" is misconfigured router and the faulty routing loop. We need to correct the router configuration and make sure that there is no routing loop. To check the routing table in your computer use the following command prompt command.

    route print

    Print time to live value

    This command will show the route table stored. For Cisco the command to Route table configured is show ip route.

  3. Increase the Time To Live Value of a packet

Getting Error 678 The Remote Computer did not Respond

Today morning my friend tried to access Internet with his BSNL Broadband connection but failed. When ever he try to connect to Internet, he is getting an error message "Error 678 The remote computer did not respond". This issue persists even after an hour so he called me for a solution. Since he is using BSNL broadband, we checked their user manual and this error code is explained in it. Error 678 is due to poor connectivity and most probably modem is the actual reason behind it. The poor connectivity can be due to faulty Ethernet cable, loose connection between modem and computer or even the modem might be corrupted. Some other possible reasons (other than modem faults and connectivity issues) are TCP/IP issues, Firewall blocking or Malicious programs run. This tutorial gives an extended support to understand and fix error 678. The steps provided here are applicable to all types of modems.

Error 678 "The remote computer did not respond"

As we said before the major reason for Error 678 is due to poor connectivity and thus the primary steps should be checking the connectivity of modem. IF that part is correct, then we must proceed to system level troubleshooting.
  1. Check the Cables connected

    We need to ensure that the Ethernet cable is not faulty and the connection is perfect. Check following connections and ensure the respective LED lights on modem are on.

    • Modem and splitter connection

    • Modem and Computer connection

    • Jack in & Jack out of splitter

  2. Power Cycle the Modem to fix Error 678

    Some times a proper power cycle can fix most of the connectivity issues. To perform power cycle follow the steps provided in the link below.
    How to Power Cycle a Network Device

  3. Reset Winsock and Restart your computer

    The next possible procedure to solve Error 678 is to reset Winsock and restart your PC. To know more about how to reset Winsock click on the link below.
    How to Reset Winsock

    After reset winsock you should restart your computer and check whether you can go online.

  4. Check whether Firewall blocks your Internet connection

    There is a possibility that Firewall installed on your laptop might block Internet connection and thus getting Error 678. You should disable the Firewall programs (Including Internet Security Suits) and check for the issue.

  5. Check for Virus Infection

    There is a chance that your PC is infected with network worms or other malicious programs. So I strongly recommend you to scan your PC using a trusted Antivirus program and ensure that it is infection free. To read my previous Security articles, click on the link below.
    Ensure your Laptop is Safe from Virus

  6. Reset and Reconfigure the modem

    The last possible step to fix Error 678 is to reset and reconfigure modem. I do not recommend you to perform this (the reason why I give this step only last) if you do not know how to configure the device again. I suggest you to follow this step with the guidance of respective ISP technical support person. To know how to reset a device, click on the link below.
    How to Reset a Network Device

These are the come common troubleshooting steps to fix "Error 678 The remote computer did not respond " error message.

How to Reset Winsock On Your Computer -Windows Socket Reset

Windows Socket or commonly called Winsock is a program interface if Windows Operating system through which applications installed send and receive signals from Internet. For example, an Internet application installed on your computer can connect to TCP/IP only through Winsock. So any issues with Windows Socket can interrupt the working of online applications on your PC. Winsock is the the short form of Windows Socket and it is very important in network communication. Any TCP/IP communication from Windows computer is defined by Windows Socket and that is why resetting it fixes many network related issues. Here I am planing to provide the step by step instructions to reset winsock for a computer.

Steps to Reset Winsock
  1. Click on  Start

  2. Open Command prompt

    This step various depends on the Windows Version you are using in your computer. In Windows XP you can type cmd on Run window and click OK to access command prompt. In Windows 7 and 8 computers you can search for command on Search box and access command prompt.

  3. Type netsh winsock reset on DOS window
    net trouble

    After this press enter to reset winsock.

  4. Reboot your computer

Winsock is very essential for any application to access Internet but it does not need to be installed with the application. For example if your web browser wants to go online, it can access it through Winsock only. It doesn't mean the browser installation file must include this software interface. It will be loaded automatically in the form of a DLL file when ever the browser wants to go online. It is important to note that the DLL file is of different versions fr Different Microsoft OS versions. It is important to make sure, your PC has the right version.

What is TCP Split Handshake Attack and How it affect Server Security

Computer network and IT Security professionals know the furious discussion going on about the last NSS lab report. This report is about the recent experiment they have conducted with popular security products. They tested different security products in 6 different situations and one of them "TCP Split Handshake Attack" was very successful for most of the products they have tested. They successfully breached the security of most of the Firewall products from different vendors using TCP Split Handshake Attack method. So what is TCP Split Handshake Attack ? How it is a threat for current network ? If we refer RFC 793 we can see how a TCP connection is established. TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a connection oriented protocol and thus it need handshaking process to establish a successful connection. Diagram provided below explains the working of a handshake process.
 Split Attack and How it affects Server Security

What is TCP Handshake ?

Before we go to Transmission Control Protocol Split Handshake, we should understand the process of three way handshake to establish a connection.Consider a scenario where we have Two TCP devices A and B. Here A wants to start a TCP connection with B and so A acts as client and B acts as server. In TCP connection the SYN\ACK packet is determining the server and client. So a proper TCP handshake is necessary to establish the correct server client relation. A simplified version of this process between A and B is given below.

Client (A) ISN =X

Server (B) ISN =Y

ISN= Initial Sequence Number

Step 1: A --- (connection request)-->B SYN=1, Seq= X

Step 2: B --- (Connection Granted) -->A SYN=1, Seq=Y, ACK= X+1

Step 3: A ----(acknowledgment) -->B SYN=0, Seq= X+1, ACK= Y+1

What is TCP Split Handshake

Now let us check how it occurs. The above three way handshake method can be written as below.

Step 1: A ----->B SYN, Seq= X

Step 2: B ----->A ACK sequence number of A is X

Step 3: B -----> A SYN, Sequence number of B is Y

Step 4: A ---> SYN\ACK Sequence number of A is X, Sequence number of B is Y+1 ( This is a possible error in many vendor products )

Step 5: Again the Three way handshake continues and the server will be A and B will be client. This process confuses the firewall.

The above error in three way handshake leads to TCP Split Handshake Attack where Firewall will be confused to find the actual server and client. As a result firewall thinks like B is the client (where in reality A is the client and requested connection) and it may lead to security vulnerability. In this split signals, some products (where the signal is strange ) drop the entire connection but some respond to it in unexpected ways.

How to Setup Linksys Wireless Router By Manual Steps

I started my computer networking career by supporting SOHO products mainly Linksys wireless products. I was assigned to a networking division which handled mainly Linksys wireless router. There I assisted clients to implement Linksys wireless routers in their already existing networks or to start a new network with them. I wrote many articles to setup various models of Linksys wireless routers and I think it will be useful if I join all of the guides in a single post. Later in my career Cisco bought Linksys and it become Linksys Cisco. With the guidance of Cisco, they introduced many high quality products in market. Most of the Linksys wireless router's have similar kind of configuration steps but some models have different procedure. Here in this tutorial we can see a common setup guide for most of the models.

Manual Steps to Setup Linksys Wireless Router
  1. Check Internet Connection:

    Make sure your computer is online with ISP Modem. Connect your PC directly to the modem and check if you can go online. If you cannot go online with modem, call your ISP.

  2. Check the Modem IP address and type of Internet Connection:

    We should check whether you are using DSL connection or Cable Internet connection. Configuration steps of Linksys router for DSL and Cable Internet are different. If you are not a techie to check the Internet connection type, I recommend you to contact your ISP customer support and verify your Internet connection type. Now you should check the IP address of the modem. To do this please follow steps in one of my previous article.
    How to Find IP Address of The Modem

    You should note the Modem IP address because we need this information while configuring Linksys router.

  3. Connect your computer to Linksys Wireless Router:

    1. Disconnect Modem from your computer
    2. Connect computer LAN port to LAN port 1 of Router using Ethernet cable
    3. Turn on your Linksys Wireless Router

Setup Linksys Wi-Fi Router without Setup Disc

Here we are not using setup CD or Cisco Connect software to configure Linksys Router.
  1. Login:

    To login, follow the steps below.

    • Type on address bar of browser

    • Enter user name and password:

      Usually there is no user name for Linksys router and the password is admin.

      So it would be like:

      Username: {Leave it blanks}
      Password : admin

      Then press enter to login.

  2. Change the Linksys Router IP address according to modem IP address:

    If the modem IP address is, we should change Linksys router IP address to If the modem IP address is something else, you should not change the IP address of Links Router.

    Make sure DHCP is enabled. After this you should click on Save Settings button.

  3. How to Setup Links Linksys Router for Cable Internet connection
