Connection Problem

By javier_barbieri ·
Hello friends!!

I have a Pentium IV running as a single server using Windows 98 and SQL Server 2000. My computer application that I have developed was working very well, but because of a virus attack this really affected our server. So I had no chance and I reformatted completely the hard disk. Now the SQL Server is running but the workstations ( all of them running Windows 98 also ) can not connect to the server, its like they can not "see" the route to the server. The application is running pretty well at the server but the clients are unable to connect, protocols used for the local network are NETBEUI and TCP/IP. Can you help me to fix this problem ?

Thank you in advance.

Make sure you are in the correct workgroup. All computers need to be in one to access files. Check your IP address? If you don't have a DHCP server, then you should hardwire the IPs on the machines. Did you share the drive? Check the security tab and make sure The World has access? This will probably help.

Host File

You can hard code the Server IP in host file. That's if your not running DHCP.
