Windows NT Remote User Problem

By rc3cds ·
My place of employment has windows NT 4.0 installed with service pack 5 installed. My remote users which use 95 and 98 are able to connect to the server but not able to browse the network. "No domain server availiable" is part of the error I get.All protocals are set up correctly, the server has all correct specs setup, what could possiably be the problem. (Remember- they can get into the server with no problem, but once in they simply can't find any resources on the network).

Have you tried to reinstall SP5. Sometimes that will fix certain glitches. Also make sure that you have the correct Domain set up on the remote systems as well as unique computer names for each one. Try to ping the servers.

Copy your hosts and lmhosts files into the C:\WINDOWS directory of the remote users PCs. That should take care of it.

Hi,

If you work with RAS, the good solution, add WINS server into your Domain.
Setup all client to client to connect to this WINS (VIA Network properties)

It's better solution.

Bye

I agree with #3 and #4 - add a WINS Server to the network, and make sure that your dialup users are configured to use it. This has solved multiple problems for me (in addition to the one you described). If resources are tight, you could also use local LMHOSTS files on the remote PC's, but this has the disadvantage of increased administration to keep them synchronized every time you make a significant change to the network - if the network is fairly static, and won't change for a long while, then this may be an option.
