how to repair a copper pipe with solder(without taking it apart)?
Do you any access to the remote system? Does it reside on the same network? If you can execute the netstat command on the remote system, you should be able to determine the IP address of the machine it is trying to connect to. For instance, if I try to ssh to a non-existent address on my network, I can run netstat on the machine where I initiated the ssh session and see the connection attempt to the non-existent machine in the SYN_SENT state (my machine has sent a SYN packet and is waiting for a SYN-ACK, which will eventually time out since the host doesn't exist). I think this would be easier than trying to determine the IP address from the hard drive of the dead machine. Edit: You might also try running a network snooping program and look for ARP packets from your board. It has to send an ARP packet first to determine the physical (Media Access Control, or MAC) address for a given IP address. The ARP packet is a broadcast which basically says, Hey, I need to send something to this IP address, can someone tell me the MAC address for this IP address?
it depends on how long you have them, iv had mine since i was a baby like couple mothz old and am now 16, so they might never close up. however if you get it done and only leave it in for lets say a year itll close up sonner, if you get it pierced and 3 months later u take it out it should close up soon. mabey a month?
