The reason for using no-ip is so that an IP address isn't required in the web address.
But for what should I look for into hosts file?

The hosts file operated in domain names and not IP addresses so you would see mysharedfiles.no-ip.org on a line with 127.0.0.1 which redirects any connection attempt to the local computer.

Since you can get a partial response from no-ip.org then I doubt it is the hosts file blocking or you wouldn't even get the footer information displayed.

To display the details I suspect that there so some form of Web Redirection and uses Frames, which displays the footer you see and one that imports the data from Bob's server into the Main Frame (see below, I have changed the IP for security to xx.xxx.xxx.xxx). So your problem appear to be that the import of data is being blocked or your browser has somehow blocked frames and or javascript.

Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">
<html>
<!-- WEB REDIRECTION PROVIDED BY NO-IP.COM  http://www.no-ip.com/ -->

Your assumption is right. There isn't any mysharedfiles or no-ip entry in my hosts file, also no mysharedfiles.no-ip.org.

So your problem appear to be that the import of data is being blocked or your browser has somehow blocked frames and or javascript.
Ok for Firefox, but for Opera, Maxthon, IE, Flock ???
I just deeply change the Firefox configurations, the others are more or less the default.

I don't know what to do with the code you've posted... What am I suppose to do with it?

Tech as David mentioned either frames or java script is disabled. (or both)
You've obviously changed the default settings of all of these browsers or, you wouldn't have this problem. Sorry... :'(

Nothing, it is just to show you that the no-ip.org, uses web redirection and Frames (frameset) to achieve the task of importing the data from Bob's server.

So either the frames and or javascript aren't working, you don't say what you did to get firefox working, you have to somehow find the equivalent settings in Opera and IE and see if you can resolve it.

New computer interface "blow-out!" From the ether beyond touchscreen interfaces comes a new one that is almost certain to get you some really odd looks on the subway. It is a blow-screen interface. Probably an option for folks who don't mind getting spit all over their screen - or passing out - while updating a spreadsheet.

Do you have any nostalgia about the days when computers were big and slow?
Now, the size, appearance and speed of the first computers seem to be lame but it was not always the case.

The Ultimate Defragger Review

This is an amazingly comprehensive analysis of the performance of just about all the free and commercial defraggers on the market. Comprehensive or not, I've used many of these products and simply cannot agree with the author's conclusions. For example, I don't much like Perfect Disk 8, which I've found to be slow, but have found Diskeeper 2007 to be excellent. This is a complete reversal of the respective ratings at this review site. Go figure. Note that I don't sell or carry ads for any defrag product. Thanks to Rein Rüüsak for the link.
