Able to Ping but not map/access
Posted on 2004-11-02
I have a Windows 2003 server on a small closed network with 3 other machines and a switch. I am manually assigning IP addresses. For some reason, on one computer w/ Windows XP I can ping the server 18.104.22.168 fine in the command prompt, but I cannot map a shared drive or find the computer in My Networks. On another computer w/ Windows 2000 I can ping and map it no problem. Both are setup with Client for MS Networks and TCP/IP w/ the following settings:
IP: 22.214.171.124 or .249
When I run net view \\126.96.36.199 I get a System Error 1231 has occured message....
This server is running SQL and when I try to connect to it using Enterprise Manager I can see the SQL server Name, but it can't connect.
Any thoughts on the problem...it must be really simple I'm just missing it...!
