Thanks for responding.

If you main the protocol on the nic in the server, no. But i have almost the same server on an other site, and there also no Netbios. Only TCP-IP.

Thanks.

I take it when you say that you cant browse the network itself that you mean my network places??

network places uses netbios and if its no enabled you wont be able to view anything in there

Under the Wins setting of the server NIC i changed the setting from "disable netbios over TCPIP" to the "Default" setting. Which means that it will enabled.

Do i have to reboot the server for this the be effective?

Thanks again.
