Guest Babs Posted November 16, 2010 Report Share Posted November 16, 2010 Question: If I'm interpreting this process correctly, the "flushing" procedure clears up any old data that might be associated with your IP address? The reason I'm asking is because, for some strange and unfathomable reason, I keep getting knocked off my server due to password discrepancies. And always (as everyone does), I have to go through the ranks of first tier support before being transferred to second level techs....a long and tedious process of explanations which first tier support is not authorized to handle. It's only second tier technicians who've got the authority to bypass Yahoo's ban on repetitive attempts at changing passwords (even by AT&T techs). At any rate, I did as you suggested and flushed the DNS data. I'm just hoping that it might be a cure-all for the password problems I've been experiencing with AT&T. Thinking this issue was a peculiar problem unique to me, I was quickly disabused of that notion by the technician who finally got me straightened away yesterday. It appears this password thingie happens to be an issue that crops up quite frequently with their other customers. So, in essence, what I'm trying to find out is....do you think keeping on top of flushing the DNS might keep me a step ahead in the process of keeping my password static (which, of course, it's meant to be, anyway)?
