Hi Devraj,

1) Are you sure it's an IP address conflict ? (not a ComputerName conflict ?)

2) What is the error message you get from Outlook then?

Ps: Are the 2 problems related ?

if you have so many computers, better go in for DHCP server...it would reduce your headaches...

If you have two separate questions, then ask two separate questions. Do your work and find out some significant information.

1) IP conflict. Once all addresses are in use, even with DHCP, then there are none left for others. Most probable is the need to establish an increased range of available IPs. You cannot just assign addresses arbitrarily and hope some of them work. Ask the Network Administrator for a list of the ranges available, the addresses that are in use, and the addresses that remain available. Ensure it is kept up to date.

2) If a product is not working, then it is not true that all settings are correct. There's at least one thing wrong. With no other information to go on, I'd have to say step one is to ensure device is plugged in. Then find out what works, and what else is not working.

Sunbow- I agree with your comment (with a couple of exceptions), although it was a bit harsh. devraj_r did say that the ip address was "free"- so to me it means that he has ensured that the address was available so he's not adding them arbitrarily. And how do you "plug-in" an Outlook client:)

devraj_r- The people that are answering questions at EE like to help others. But no one likes to help others that do not try to help themselves first. Please give more information as your questions are analogous to saying, "My car is broken, how can I fix it?" And I certainly hope that the IP address truely is "free". And in the future, you really should break your questions up as I'm sure that these two questions are not concerning the same system- right? I will address the first question for now.

Question 1:

Has the system EVER worked on your LAN? What changed?
Is your LAN segmented?
Does this happen when the cable is disconnected?
What protocols are installed?
What is your infrastructure like? DNS, DHCP, WINS, etc..

Little point to check, if your network is also connected to remote networks...
Did you ensure the conflicting IP wasn't in use ?(a "ping <ip_address>" should give you an indication)

you could always change you IP to a defintely unused one and net send <<the original IP>> to see if anyone gets the message or you nbtstat -a <<IP>> to see what use is on it

Sebastien_BCommented:
supertw2000 : your methods are not Network welcomed, as for example the Net Send / Nbtstat will only rock if you're talking to a Windows host...

Think of the fact that ALL network also have non-Windows IP nodes, for example your ROUTER(S), your SWITCH(ES)... printers ...

So simply, check the Network Admin for a free IP for the testing is the only way to do this.
