Browsing Resources of Windows2008 server from XP across WAN
Posted on 2010-08-12
Have Win2008 server (not R2), 4-bit
No AD, no DNS
Using NetBios (NT4 domain) - don't ask, I didn't build this ...
WINS server on 2008 side/subnet
WINS server on XP side/subnet
WINS populates server name on both sides
2008 server can browse/access shares on 2003 WINS server on XP side
XP can see 2008 server in browse list.
Click on the server, and "network path not found" is the prevailing error message
Same issue from the 2003/WINS server on same subnet as the XP box
Can ping by name, IP address, ets
Can access all resources on 2008 server from all local PC's. By name, by IP address, by browse list, etc, no problems at all.
From remote site cannot even use \\ip address
But can ping by both IP address and Netbios name
Supposedly no firewalls between the two sites. Direct P2P T1 (I have no access to the local routers or I would certainly check this theory)
