Does anyone know of any differences in the way ainternational version of Windows XP talks to a US network?
What I've got is a piece of new equipment that is being installed in our plant that is to be connected to our network. We are currently running a mixed environment on our network of Win2K and Windows XP with Windows 2K and Windows 2003 servers. This new piece of equipment (which is running a Spanish version of XP) has been introduced to the network twice in the last week, and both times it has almost brought our network down. It almost seems like it is broadcasting something across the net, but because none of us in the IT group speak or read Spanish, we're not sure if there is a difference in how it talks to an English network, or if there is something we need to install, or what is going on. As soon as we physically unplug it from the network, everything goes back to normal.
Can anyone give me some insight into this?
