Win98 machines unable to Access Win2k server on another subnet (but can see server)

I've got a client who's got a NT domain with 2 win2k servers as part of the server group.  The Win98 machines can access the mapped drives on the NT boxes but get access denied when the login script tries to create the mapped drives to the Win2k shares.  Further more when I try to manually browse the network and access the server I get access denied messages.  Also, the Win 98 machines on the same subnet as the Win 2k servers are able to create mapped drives and access on the 2k servers. I have a feeling it has to be a network config issue of but not sure exactly what.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

Yup!  Browsing is a function of the browser service, unless you are dunning WINS and DNS.  Browsing involves broadcasts.  If some clients can access the servers it is likely they are on the same side of the router as the servers they can access (Same broadcast domain.)  Routers create seperate broadcast domains.

We finally source of the problem, a router was not functioning properly.  A change in config took care of this problem.
Glad I you found the source.  That kind of problem makes CiscoWorks worth the money.
