I have a client running W2K Server with DHCP. They are connected to another LAN via separate switch (VPN) which has a firewall on the other end. The other LAN is hooked up via fiber.
Every so often (one to three times a day to once a week) the network loses connections. If you run winipcfg there isn't any configurations listed. Unable to ping any machine on the LAN or the DNS servers on the other LAN. Does anyone have any idea of what to check for or do? Is it DHCP that is causing this? Will setting static IP addresses help to elviate the problem?
If you need more information, let me know and I'll pass on what I can.
