I manage a remote server that my users need to see.  If they browse through network neighborhood, the server is not listed.  if they type in the path, they can access the server.  Is this a NetBios issue? Is it a firewall wall issue?  The server is a windows 2003 standard.

Hi Pioneermfg,

Is the server in a domain or a workgroup?

Cheers!

Pioneermfg,

If the server and the users are not in the same domain, the users would not be able to see the server thru network neighborhood.
Have you checked to see if the NetBIOS is turned on, on the server? It can be turned on or off on the WINS tab in the properties of your NIC - you need it on.
By default, the DEFAULT radio button should be selected but you can select ENABLE NETBIOS over TCP/IP if you desire.
