  • windows 2000 server not able to browse the network

    Hello

    I am using win 2000 server and installed DHCP on that machine . I have 20 computers on my network. I am able to ping all the system but not able to browse the network. I receive a messege The specified server cannot perform the requested operation. I also tried to give the static ip and browse the netwrok but it doesnot help. I changed the workgroup but hte problem is same. I am not using the active directory.

    Please let me know if i can configure the dhcp server without configuring active directory.

    Please help.

    Hi there,

    The following thread may assist you if you're having problems browsing network neighborhood or my network places:

    My notes on WINS, DHCP and the BROWSER serivce may also help:

    Can you please describe your steps that you're testing with? The term "browsing" can carry many different meanings.

        Hi,

        I am using the network to share data on all the computers.

          If that is your response to the question "Can you please describe your steps that you're testing with? The term "browsing" can carry many different meanings." I'm sorry but that is not nearly enough information to develop a solution to your problem.

          Provide a step by step explanation on how you're testing so I know what is failing and where.

          Thank you,

            What have you set for your default gateway on all you machines??

            How exactly are your machines configured???

            You need to supply more info.
