    Missing port types : local port and Standard TCP/IP port

    I am working in a small office as a programmer and I dont have ay ideas about network support. One of the colleagues computer doesnt have port types "local port" and "Standard TCP/IP port" that is under files > server properties > ports > add new port > port types. I dont want to reinstall Windows XP and actually he did delete the same port types. Does anyone know how to get it back. Thanks.

    Check if you have netsupport manager installed, then uninstall it and try again. If it is not installed, then check settings at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors, you will have here multiple entries. For local port, Driver=localspl.dll and one for "Standard TCP/IP Port", Driver = tcpmon.dll. Also the dlls cant be loaded. You can detect the dependencies with depends.exe from microsoft. For tcpmon.dll these are msvcrt.dll, ws2_32.dll and spoolss.dll and the standard dlls. (msvcrt.dll could be a candidate). For localspl.dll you can download a debug-version from my homepage, which gives debug output in dbgview from sysinternals. It is renamed to ddklocalmon.dll (search for it it google newsgroup)

    Alright, the solution that you gave me allowed the printer installer to add my printer and create entries for various ports. I asked microsoftr support before you replied to me and they are going to give me some suggestions as well. After getting the proper method, I will post it here. Thanks.
