more info

if it's just a home thing with one workstation and one server than you might want to make sure that you are using the latest client and service packs.

if it's a work environment you may be dealing with anything from a wins or computer browser issue to slp or nds problems.

if you have a packet sniffer you might be able to pinpoint the problem easily even though it sounds sporatic. if you don't have a packet analysis tool then you may want to check on the health of NDS and your server's utilization, perhaps load tcpcon to monitor traffic unless you're using ipx too.

good luck

Same problem with NT

by tbragsda In reply to 2000 Pro and Novell 5.1

I have seen this problem with NT and 2k. I think it is a name resolution problem, but never have gotten to the bottom of it. Try updateing the client.

IPX or IP to the NW server?
