Hi I have a network of of ten PC's 5 of which are Win XP Pro the others a mix of Win 98 and 2000. All the PC's access a Dell Poweredge Windows 2000 server which is the domain controller to logon and access sharded folders and files. The Win 98 and 2000 have no problems on the network. However the Windows XP's keep losing their connection with shared files on the server. They logoff and login again and their shares work again. The Windows XP's also seem slow on the netowrk, ie saving/opening files and also logging on.
I have tried placed the Win 2000 server IP address in the DNS of an XP , but same thing happens.
Any ideas guys??
Thanks for your help.
