  • Can't access My domain from My Network Places

    Hello all ! This is my first thread.

    I have a Windows XP SP3 PC in the domain, I can ping other domain pc's with IP or hostname, no firewall is turned on, file sharing is on, I'm trying to access the network places with a domain admin user,
    My problem is that after a few minnutes of work I can't access My domain from My Network Places, I'm also not able to browse a folder with unc path or map a network drive.
    Help would be appriciated,
    Best regards.

    Sounds like a networking issue, any link errors in event viewer? When you are unable to browse to file shares, can you still ping the hosts?

        More than likely a WINS issue.

              Install WINS and it should fix it.

              Is NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled???

                Hi all !
                Thanks for the replys, I have no need for wins in the network. So I need another type of solution for this issue. NETBios is enable.

                  The errors you are reporting suggest you DO have a need for WINS

                    Re: Can't access My domain from My Network Places

                    are you able to access a share using the fully qualified domain name?


                    ie, \\server1.domain.com\Share\Folder

                      Exactly.

                      You need WINS to access My Network Places.

                          Can you post an IPCONFIG/ALL from the problem PC and from a good one

                          Since it is a domain, why can't you use DHCP and set up a WINS server?
