help! I,m running Lansuite 2003 25 user license on xp pro. Been up and running since June 2k3 9 users 19 aliases.
use smtp, pop3, and webserver on port 8081 for webmail access. worked perfectly until 9-28-2003. It crashed with the following log entry: Faulting application lansuite.exe, version 2003.0.0.328, faulting module ws2_32.dll, version 5.1.2600.0, fault address 0x00008d72.
restarted it ran for a while (functioned normally) crashed ,
restart crash.... couldn't fix it
restored the hard drive using Ghost to a known good configuration from 3 weeks prior.
ran it for a while and it crashed (same message)
I've switched nics, moved it to another machine, reinstalled a fresh copy with no accounts configured, tried latest version, tried compatability modes, all crashed with same error.
it seems to not crash if I route the traffic to another machine but that doesn't solve my problem
all my troubleshooting leads me to believe it may be caused by somekind of packet header coruption or attack or something. so I reset the dsl modem , router and hubs incase there was an error from them.....same crash no matter what I try...

Looks like you have a reqistered version of Lansuite, so you might do better to contact thier support line.
There are a lot of viruses and trojans that call the WS2_32.dll. But I can take it you are running up-to-date anti-virus and firewalls. Although if you picked up a trojan you may have to get a anti-trojan program, since anti-viruses can miss certain trojans. But even an ad-ware checker could be recommended, too.
Unlikely that WS2_32 has been compromised. WS2_32.Dll is the Windows Socket 2 API. On my macinge it is 74k, and has a date modified of Aug 23, 2001. Since it is a protected module, it you think it has been compromised somehow just rename it. Then windows will recreat it.
