I've been running SAS Free Edition for about a month. I return home from a trip yesterday, and find I no longer can access the Internet via an Ethernet-connected cable-modem connection. Speaking at length with Cablevision tech support, we're pretty sure that something is blocking a port - they indicate that firewall software or anti-spyware applications are usually to blame. I'm not running a firewall, so trying to figure out if SAS could be doing this.
One other piece of data... When in a hotel this week, I was getting error messages about conflicting IP addresses. I think this was due to having both wireless and wired connections available, and using both. I wondering if this could have set something into action.
Any thoughts on what my next steps should be?
