Unable to access server

By mark ·
I have a MAN that consists of 5 sites, 3 NT servers and 10 Windows 98 workstations at each site. I have 3 workstations at 2 sites that are not able to access 1 of 3 servers at 2 locations. The servers show in network neighborhood, but when I try to access them I receive an error "no access to \\server\. We are using TCP/IP as the protocol. I have completely deleted the NIC from the system and reinstalled the drivers and protocol. We are using DHCP. My game plan now is to replace the NIC.And if that doesn't work reload the OS on the workstation. I've invested 3 hours playing with one of the computers already. ny suggestions before I get started.

Hi,

It sounds like a security problem more than a hardware one. You need to know what you can and cant do...

Can you manually map a share from the command prompt or the explorer? Browsing to the shares is notoriously bad.

Cheers,
Tim.

Hi,

Still think its a security issue... Are there any entries in the event log of the server you're trying to map to?

You say you're an administrator... Maybe not using the "administrator" account, though. Do the account names and passwords match up across the two machines?

Do you have the NetBIOS protocol stack enabled to allow Win98 machines to connect to Win2K?

Cheers,
Tim.

I tried to use the NET command to map to the server, but was unable. I am the administrator on the network and can access all but 2 of the servers. I can go to a workstation next to this one and can access all of the servers.

Have you tried connecting with the command NET USE * \\"IP_adress"\c$
/USER:administrator "password"

instead of the servername. Just for troubleshooting purposes.

Maybe name-to-IP resolution doesn't work well on some machines.

I am experiencing the same problem. Customers can access all servers but one. The solution that I have been using is to change out the nic. It has only happened 4 times, one just recently with a wireless laptop. Changing out the NICS or wirelessadapters have worked on all 4 systems
If you find out why, please forward
