duplicate name exists on the network
Posted on 2004-11-10
I have an old windows 95 machine on our win2k network that is primarily as a print controller. Recently, the computer cannot be accessed anymore saying that computer \\*** cannot be managed and there is a duplicate name exists on the network. There isn't another computer with that name on the network, so I don't know what it sees. We have a plotter that is shared and it doesn't even list it anymore when I just select the computer that is listed in network neighborhood. I need to print off of this plotter again, but what I can't figure out is why I can't work with this even though the computer shows up in users and computers and is the only one with this name. Any ideas anybody and thanks in advance.
