Mapped Network Drive Disconnected

By anthangamani ·

These are the details:

1. At the time when the user is logged for the first time he is able to access the shared resources in the server.

2. The shared folders in the server are mapped thru a drive letter.

3. After some time say about 20 mins to 30 mins, when the user tries to access the shared folder, the mapped network drive gives a problem stating that the network path cannot be found.

4. when this problem occurs i try to ping the server. This is successful.

5. The user again needs to relogon to access the server resources.

6. How can I resolve this problem kindly do help me out.

7. But even I have noticed that there is no Red X or the drive does not show as "Disconnected Network Drive".

8. I even tried to change the Idle time out value. But this Brings no result.

9. We have firewall Installed. We use Symantec Endpoint Production as the virus scanning software.

10. We r using Windows XP at the Client side & Windows 2003 at the server side.

11. We have two offices of our client. One office does not has any problems like this.

Are you sure the NIC isn't set to be disabled after "no activity"? Go to
Device Manager and double-click on the NIC entry to get its Properties.
Click on the Power Management tab and uncheck "allow Windows to turn off
this device when not in use".
