95/98 clients have no outlook2k accessLocked
We have a small LAN with NT4.0 Servers, NT wkst and 4 95/98 clients. All have Outlook 2000. Yesterday when we shut down our current isp, Bluestar, (going out of business), none of the 95/98 clients had access to outlook 2k. For some reason, they could not connect to the Exchange server without Internet access. NT workstations were unaffected. We determined it was the DNS settings. Apparently, those 95/98 clients were using the DNS settings for Bluestar which no longer existed. With our new internet provider up and running today, and the new DNS settings on our Exchange Server set to the new provider, the 95/98s are now able to access Outlook2k. My question is why are the 9x machines dependent on Internet access to run Outlook2k andthe NT machines not??? Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
