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 ?

Cheers
(beers on me !)
Stu

Where are these laptops located? same subnet or remote subnet?

You say you can ping the laptops by name and they resolve and reply but you cannot map a drive to them by name? Try mapping a drive to them using their IP address, i.e., start > run > \\172.16.24.150\c$

Does this work?

Need more info but at the surface it sounds like a DNS issue.

Makes no odds if there on a different subnet, unable to map a drive to these win2k machines from a different location, went to the office where these machines are, these are on the same subnet, even connected to the same switch, but just unable to map a network drive at all, (need to use remote software <Dameware> to connect to these machines and cant establish a connection that way either)

Nothing is Disabled in the services, really baffling this one is....
mapping via IP address gives the same error
I had 2 identical built machines, on the same subnet and same switch, can ping each other OK, but can't map a drive. Its almost like theres somthing blocking it, i.e, like a port number is blocked somehow ?

Send a message via Yahoo to Dansevans

First the easy things... is File and Print Sharing enabled on the laptops? (i've missed this before and get the results your describing).
