I work for mas(billing company) we connet to palsades(hospital). In order to connect to palisades we need three things: cisco vpn client, sna server client, and rumba term emulation.

for 98 macchines it works fine. for win2k machines it says i cant make a remote connection to there server pmc_sna1(domain is pmc_sna) we never get a logon box for win2k either.

what we know works is the cisco client cause it make the connection. it seeems to fail on the sna server/client. we have the same verision as them(95) also we have the sna server from nt backoffice.

we have rumba 7.2 2 sna server versions(95/nt) as well as cisco vpn clirent 4.1.

is there maybe a problem in the dns side our maybe i need a lmhosts file? seeing as palisades has a nt domain?

ps this is posted twice but i think i posted the first question in the wrong forum ,, moderators please dont use you uber stick of death on my post

Since they have a NT domain, I would start by adding a LMOHSTS file entry and see if that makes a difference. It appears to be a NetBios name resolution issue. You should only need the domain controller entries (2 entries).

Also the guy told me he connects from home via XP. My first though was my firewall is causing an issue but 98 gets through fine.

Also i have dont have the hostintergration package only sna 95 and nt version but he uses the 95 version and seems fine.

also he says pmc_sna1(the server it self) ip address s 10.29.68.34 while the domain is pmc_sna i am not sure what goes where.

Is it possible default security settings from system policy? Was thinking that would affect win2k machines and not my 98 machines

I was hoping some other experts might jump in here. I'm really rusty on SNA networking...

it seems we were using a win95 sna server client , same as the most oter people were using acording to the remote admin.
i tried a winnt version cause i am using win2k that also failed but we found a win9x one and that semed to work

seeing as lrmorre tried to help i will just give him the points for it .
