Network Neighborhood

I helped a friend out, and built him a new server, with Windows NT 4.0, keeping the network running with the existing tcp/ip protocol.

Upon installing the server (and disconnecting the old one), I find that the "Old" server and the "old" Printer share is still showing in Network Neighborhood on all the Windows98 clients, along with the "New server".
How can I get rid of these old icons, and show just the "New" server in Network Neighborhood?

One or more of the Win98 boxes is acting as a master browser and is broadcasting the info. Discontinue this and also check to make sure you are only running the TCP/IP protocol.

dew_associates, it's kinda sophisticated answer..
I don't know any way as to find out which computer is a name browser and the solution I use is to turn out all the computers, and then turn on the server first and let it initialize the network, so it'll be a name browser from that point.

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Jack, in a simplistic way you said (partially) the same thing I did, I just wanted Ivaders to understand the why of what was happening, not just how to fix it.

I know that's the same, I guess I tried to get some more info on the subject..
I hoped for a reply from you like "but there's another simpler way..."    :-)
That's the reason I posted the comment..
It didn't work..how sad.

Okay Jack, maybe this will help.

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Networking.

Highlight the File and Print Sharing entry in the window and then click properties.

If that box is enabled as a browse master, it will be shown in this window. Just disable it and let the server handle it.

never associated this box before with name browsing...well, every day one learns something..
if you want points for it as a question, let me know, I'll open one for you.
10x again.
bye.
