One of your computers has the IP address of the server.  Likely the one that cannot connect.  Change that PCs IP address to something that isn't being used.

If you are having trouble and you are getting the message their is an IP conflict, it usually means you have two workstations with the same IP.  So check your IP of the workstation that is not working.  

If you have windows 98 right click network Neighborhood, and go to properties.

Then locate TCP/IP......ethernet adapter  Do not choose the TCP/Ip....Dialup adapter.    

Once you find the ethernet adapter one, click on it to highlight it and then click properties.  

Once you click on the properties you will see the IP Address that is entered.  Depending on what it is change usually the last number to an IP address that is not currently being used.

There is no IP Address on the Client Machine...since, it is dynamic.....so, advise.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

 
chrisandersoonCommented:
are you using a server with DHCP service or are you using something such a internet device to assign an IP address?

Netman66Commented:
You need to exclude the server's IP address from the DHCP scope.

It is being given out by DHCP because it is in your scope and not excluded or reserved.

Of course, there is an IP on the client machine. What OS is on the client machine? In W2K Pro, go run, then type cmd, and enter. At the command prompt, type ipconfig/all. This will give you a readout of IP related information for your network adapter on the client machine. Compare IP with server.  In Win9x, I believe you type Winipcfg at the run line and you should get a window with the info.

In windows 98 it is winipcfg however it may default to the PPP screen so use the drop down box to change it to your ethernet/network card

Netman66Commented:
If there is an IP conflict the winipcfg will report an address of 0.0.0.0

We have DHCP is Enabled...how to renew the adapter...the IP Addredd for the client machine is coming as 0.0.0.0..advise.

You must add a exclusion to the DHCP server scope for the actual address of the server itself.  This will prevent DHCP from giving out the server's IP to a DHCP client.

After exclude the ip of your server from the DHCP scope

use ipconfig /renew (on a windows 2000)

or user Winipcfg and click on Renew all

to get a new ip address.
