I have 3 machines networked peer to peer. One is Windows 2K Professional and two are Windows 95. They are connected via coax cable.
The NetBEUI and TCP/IP protocols are installed.
Every once in while, the Windows 95 machines will receive an Access Denied message when trying to connect to the Windows 2K machine. The Windows 95 machines have full access to the Win 2K workstation.
If the Windows 95 machine is turned off for a period time, the connection seems to reset and full access is restored when it is restarted.
For the most part, the machines work well together. When the Windows 95 client is unable to connect, it seems to be only one client at a time, never both machines.
I'm wondering if this is protocol problem or something in Win 2K that is resolved in a service pack.
