Hi, anyone help me with resolve my network setting issue

I connect to work via a VPN which appears ok.  However, I can't seem to access our intranet.  Is this a simple hosts file issue?

Also, often I cannot see any of the servers on the network via 'My network places' even though I can browse them via Win Explorer?.  Any ideas?

Thanks
K

It would not hurt to check your netbios over TCP/IP settings, and to add a LMHosts file with the server IP's.

Also update your NIC drivers !

Can you access by

Start- run - \\servername\sharename ?

I hope this helps !

Are you registering with WINS server when you get an IP address?
Depending on how the server is setup, you should get at least one WINS server IP with your IP lease.

Thanks for the help peeps.

Wasn't too sure what to check regards the netbios but having checked the tabs I note it's using Netbios settings from DHCP server.  Anyhow, IT admitted they hadn't given me a correct lmhosts file.  They've added the right server IP now but I have to run an nbtstat -R every time I log in.

Although I have a NIC card I now use USB because I don't want my cable modem tied down to an NIC address as it stops me using my connection on my personal home pc for approx 4hrs and I don't want to network the two.

Ref WINS, I have one WINS server specified.

It's working now thanks.  Only problem I have now is the one I posed on 29/5 regards my apps going down on me over the VPN which I believe is a networking issue or due to F-Secure virus software IT have loaded.  This issue is still extremely annoying and they are doing naff about it.

Thanks
