Error messgae when trying to push AV Software to Windows 2000 clients

Hi,

I am trying to push Symantec Anti Virus software version 10 to a number of different machines on our network. I have managed to push to some of the machines but I have got some error messages when a majority of them.
I have ensure that the File and Print has been allowed via the XP 2 firewall, They are all running the latest patches and Windows xp,  
Below is a copy of some of the error message that I get when I scan for machines that don't have AV installed
Machine Name Login error: No network provider accepted the given network path. (1203) (IP)-X.X.X.X (Obviously X is the IP Address of the workstations).
Some of these machines did have Norton software installed in the past, I have uninstalled Norton on some of these via the application nonav, and they still get this error message.

Could be simple file sharing is turned on.

You can check that easily enough via explorer > tools > folder options > View > uncheck "use simple file sharing"

Hi,

The most common issue is simple file sharing or the XP firewall.

If you can connect to the admin share on the machine \\IPADDRESS\c$ and this is a good test.

Then you should be fine. It could be not all of the machines your are connecting to have the same administrator password??

Cheers
