I recently installed 2000 Server as a Domain Controller. I have a 2000Pro wks as the only other computer on the network.
For days everything has worked beautifully until I powered down installed a second CDrom and rebooted this morning. I uninstalled the CD thinking that was the problem but the problem persists.
From the server I can Ping the wks, browse the shares and manage all objects of the wks from the MMC of the server.
The problem is I can no longer authenticate from the wks to the server. I CANNOT EVEN PING the server from the wks. I?m thoroughly baffled by the one directional communication.
I use fixed IPs
I have two Nic's in the wks
A. 192.168.1.2 which connects to a DSL router Lan IP 192.168.1.1
B. 192.168.1.3 which connects via crossover to the server
Server Nic = 192.168.1.5
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
DNS is configured
