Windows 2000 network...

Trying to see e-mail server in Network Neighborhood, but can't, and i need to.  I can ping this server by name and by IP from any computer.  

Any ideas, this is urgent please.

Thanks in advance!

Hi QuiteSupersonic,

Is there a wins server on the network?

are you able to do this \\<yourserver>\c$ and then see the contents?

Cheers!
regards,

Trenes

No WINS server.

And yes I can map that UNC, but I could already ping it by name.

you need to enforce netbios on the mail server under the wins tab of TCPIP properties (and reboot)

But i thought enabling netbios was a large security risk.  Now that you mention it, I just turned that off a few days ago, but never made the connection.  Since DNS and AD are working fine on the network, shouldn't they be able to handle listing computer accounts in Network Places?

no, network places runs purely on netbios, there is no seurity risk with it
