ME logging on to NT domain problem
Gixster Dec-05-01 01:26 PM
I have a laptop with ME on it. I've configured it to log into my NT domain server. The network settings are correct, the system is obtaining the ip from the dhcp server, and all appears to be well. I can ping the server and other computers on the network from the laptop, but it will not:

1. in the logon screen, the domain name doesn't show up as it does on my 95 systems.
2. I get the "can't connect" error when I try to map drives to the server.

Any suggestions ? or is there something special I have to do with ME ?

Thanks
Tracy

In Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network, is your Priamry Network Login Wdinows or the Client for Microsoft Networks? Larry

I've tried it both ways. It is set to Client for Microsoft Networks, and that should work, but it's not. I can't get validated.

Thanks

Are the workgroup and domain names identical? They have to be. Larry

Yes, they are identical. It's really throwing me for a loop.

Thanks

How is it connected to the network? Larry

Connected through CAT 5 cable to my NT Server. I know the cable is ok, as it's the one I use to connect with my desktop, I just swapped the cable over to the laptop.

Thanks

Odd... It may be something obvious that neither of us is seeing because it is so obvious. If it were my laptop, I would start by uninstalling everything network and reinstall. If that doesn’t fix it, it could be a winsock problem. This usually fixes those problems: http://duxcw.com/faq/network/winsock.htm. Larry
