    New Network Nuisance

    Hi all.
    I know everyone must go through this evertime they set up a network, im just hoping someone will know exactly what i need to do.
    There are 2 computers both on win2000. They both have network cards which seem to work fine. The lights on the switch are solid so the connections are fine. Both have folders with sharing turned on. One computer shows both computers under the WORKGROUP and can access the other without any problems. The other will not let me open the WORKGROUP and gives the error "Server is not set up for transfer".
    The one which works has the IP 192.168.0.1 and the one which has an automatic ip.


    I just tried adding a netBEUI protocol and now it shows up on the other? Is this the right thing to do?
    Thanks

    Actually its not... for a while it was asking for a password. When it was asking for a password ( i forget the wording) i couldnt figure out what to type. The windows logon for the other machine i was trying to reach didnt work.

    Now its back to the original error message. I dont know what i did to get it back to that.
    Anything i should try?
    thanks

    Are you using the exact same Workgroup Name? And are you using two complete different names for the Computers?

    yes and yes.
    I can see both computers on one of them and they both appear under the same workgroup.
    ill just make some screen grabs for you...


    (out of intrest: I also have a network at home and (accidently) the 2 computers have different workgroup names and they still connect fine)

    heres the screen grabs from the computer which isnt recognising the other.
    It manages to find it if i search for the exact name however i get the message seen in this picture.

    Re: New Network Nuisance

    According to The Microsoft Error Messages Reference Manual, the message "The server is not configured for transactions" usually means that the IPC$ resource has not been shared.
    Can you try the following on both computers.
    [list=1]<LI>Right click My Computer
    <LI>Select Manage
    <LI>Open Shared Folders in the left hand pane
    <LI>Click on Shares in the left hand pane
    <LI>Look on the right hand pane to see if IPC$ is shared
    [list=1]

    Ahh, very good. I have bookmarked that resource.
    I was able to fix it by re installing the file sharing protocol on one of the machines which i think effectively did the same thing.

    I think that was probably the only way to fix it. There is no user interface which allows you to remove or add the IPC$ share.
