"Duplicate name on network" error using Netbeui
Posted on 2003-10-21
Have three computers networked through a router using Netbeui. Two are running Win98, and the third is using XP.
Since adding the Netbeui protocol to the XP machine, I keep receiving the following message at bootup: "Duplicate name exists on network."
I tried renaming the XP machine to XPDesktop, but I am still getting the error. I tried deleting Netbeui, which cures the error, and reinstalling it, which brings it back immediately.
Any possible solutions to this wacky problem?
Thanks in advance!!
