3 PC's on network all different names. Plus the lan works fine when the two clients and server are on 98SE. Why should 2000 be different?

2 NIC's on server one for DSL. Clients each have one.

Strange, I have installed here some 3 dual boots all with Windows 2000 and a other OS and never I have recieved this message. go to the server => start => run and run nbtstat -R there. See if you have the same problem again. I think that we look at the wrong place...

nbtstat shows 4 identical Netbios names resolved by broadcast. I have 3 mapped drives to a client machine on the server. Do you suppose W2000 does not allow mapped drives? I'll disconnect the drives and see what happens. Will try tonite.
Thanks, Stan

do yo have the DSL connected directly to the second NIC or do you have it plugged into a HUB?  If you plug it into the hub and then have both NICs plugged into the hub, you will get that error.  the 2 NICS must be connected to separate network segments.

DSL is on a separate NIC the LAN is on a second one. No hub, 10Mb coax.

Thanks for the reference, apparently applies only to NT. So far no joy.

You can't use the same machine name for both installations when you dual boot W2K Server and another operating system (if you are using AD).

You got it but some credit should also go to lermitte who alluded to this but was misinterpreted by me. LAN and ICS working now, thanks. Clients asking for password to access server. Can't locate where pasword is entered on server didn't set it. Is there a default?
Regards, Stan
