Win 2000 prof client logs onto NT 4
PDC nicely with logon script.
"My computer" on the client then shows
the correct mapping letters.
After about 5 minutes of inactivity
(only using local C: drive),
"My computer" now shows RED X.
Clicking on one reveals error- drive
cannot be found etc. - only after repeated
clicking does mapped drive
awaken and open up. - I did see that
right clicking on connection has some
"idle and sleep properties" which I
of course tried all possible combinations
of checking and unchecking
Can anybody explain how do fix this

X on mapped drives after few minutes

I have applied sp1, thereafter a single click restores the mapped drive(for about 10 min). Win2k does not broadcast it's presence or detect the presence of other pcs(other than when browsing or being browsed), and forgets the mapping. This is a bug.

I've since discovered by playing around myself - that there is a service
option in "services" about network
connections - I switched thge service to automatic and there are also drop boxes. The 1st drop box has an option
to restore connectionwhen asked -
This seemed to work - it wakes up the
connection when needed.
Thanks anyway.

Your problem can also be fixed another way. I had the same problem and it turned out to be the idle disconnect feature. My problem was on 95 and 98 Wkstations if you need info on that let me know
