I have an issue where i can map/browse to a domain on my own machine but when i login to a different machines offsite i am unable to. When i try to browse to the domain it says i don't have permission. There are 8 machines offsite on a specific location that have this issue. The issue is with a specific domain as i can browse/map to others. I'm not sure where the problem is. Please Advise

Cheers

Hey,

This is a fuzzy answer, but a start to investigate.

If you navigate to >

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc

you will find a file called "lmhosts".   Open it up with notepad.

The file is an example of how you can construct an lmhosts file that will link remote hosts.   I think that you are supposed to delete the contents, (after making a backup first), and then add your own syntax to map the PC to your domains / servers.   I have used this on similar remote sites, but really can't remember the exact process.

The web should yield some answers, and maybe an expert could fill in the blanks.

Sorry for the less than definative answer, regards, David.

Hi,

The offsite machines are in a different subnet, domain or in a different location.

When you talk about Browsing mechines it is called NETWORK BROWSING. This is all netbios traffic.

If you have some mechines you must make sure that the NetBIOS Traffic is allowed.

i entered the IP address of the domain and mapped the drive. There seems to be an issue with these machines not recognising actual server name which will be dealt with at a later date
