Hi,

for some reason our windows 2003 server is not showing in network places. It's the only server in the domain with 20 windows 7 users.

We can ping it fine, we can access the shares of the server fine usings \\192.168.1.100 or \\server-name.

The server is DNS and WINS.

The reason why this is an issue for us is that our printer is no longer able to save scanned images to the server. The printer can ping the server ok and we can print to the printer.

But there is an issue stopping this related the the title of this post. The printer can browse our domain and see all PC's but not the server.

This was all working ok on Thursday last week but for some reason has now stopped.

Thanks
