Server 2003 Domain with all XP Clients randomly loses ability to browse the network
Posted on 2006-11-06
I am running server 2003 standard edition with 15 user licenses for our office. I am the IT Manager here, and this issue is driving me insane because Canon's imageWARE software needs the ability to browse the network. It's not an issue of the computer browser service or WINS over tcp/ip, but rather it has something to do with concurrent connections on XP machines. I fixed the group policy that had somehow (we will blame interns, of course) gotten out of whack. now its a matter of the XP machines not being able to accept any more incoming connections. imageWARE, for those of you unaware of its bad attitude after first install, is document management software from Canon. ive been to training on it and am authorized to "install" it and "fix" it...however this has me baffled, and i dont have time to read countless books to find easy answers. imageWARE is next to useless without the ability to browse networks. I have read the other threads about shortening the timeouts, but im not too sure what that entails. i tried it on one machine, and it worked for a bit. after a restart it is no longer working. please and thank you for any...ANY...help you can give me.
