NT4 and W2K Servers and TRUSTS

My NT4 server can see my Wk2 Server over my home internal network, but not vice versa. I am just about ready to give up on W2K server because it is so cryptic but I'll stick to it if I can get this working.

Everytime I try to browse my network neighborhood using W2K I can see the various domains but every time I try to expand the NT4 domain it times out and says duplicate name found on network.

Also, just trying to establish a TRUST between the 2 domains is impossible since the neither can "contact" the other.

Any help / pointers would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem until I installed active directory services on Win2K.
ADS is required for trust relationship.

I have that installed and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Interesting that my W2K Server can not view and computers on the NT domain but it can view another W2K workstation.

When you installed, there was a choice that asked if you would be connecting to old NT 4.0 (mixed mode).  Did you choose the Win2K only mode?

I believe so, I could connect to the NT server just a week or so ago. At that time I was in the process of setting up a DNS server on that machine since I host a web site on it. Is it possible I need to add a DNS record of some kind to enable the communication?

The NT 4.0 server can browse the W2K domain and drill down into the machine shares, but not vice versa.

The W2K Server can see the domain but can not drill down into the machine.

If you have Active Directory Services installed, you should set a one way trust relationship.  If the Win2K server is the web server, set the Win2K domain as a trusting domain of the NT domain, and set the NT domain as a trusted domain.
