Are you sure?
One of the main problems I have with stand alone machines is WINDOWS
switching off TCP/IP when it losses the cable. Intermittent problems
come from occasional breaks in the internet connection which stop and
restart network services - even though you do not expect it.
So in a stand alone system are you connecting using local protocol, or
TCP/IP, and is there any internet connection on the machine ?
