Can Ping OK, but cant connect ?
Hi all :)
This one is racking my brains, so if anyone can help, then thank u in advance !!!!
Got a domain, running NT4 and 2k, some PC's in a different building, so all connected via routers, etc..
In my office, i can ping every PC on the network, but......... heres a problem
In another office, i can ping NT4 desktops and map a drive to the C$ or any share even, but if i want to connect to a laptop, it dont work....
I can ping these laptops which are running win2k, but i am unable to connect to the C$ or any share.
Try to map to the named share on these laptops and the message 'Network name not found' comes back (although u can ping by name and resovle to IP)
Try to map to the IP address of these laptops and the message 'network name not found', although i can ping this laptop, and i know a user is logged onto it OK ?
What u reckon, a gateway problem, a router not allowing return data, etc ?
(beers on me !)
