Browser Master error


B

Bob

How can I fix this ? For some reason "the browser" on the win2K server
is trying to get something from a lowly XP laptop out on the network.
The server really should not be looking at the clients in this way.

Environment is a stand alone win2K server, no AD, single DSL
router/switch on SOHO network, DHCP through router.

First thing that comes to mind is that the XP client thinks it's the
Master Browser. On the laptop check:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters\

and set IsDomainMaster and MaintainServerList to false.

IsDomainMaster was false, MaintainServerList was true. I changed it to
false. The Server shows true/yes for those values.

Should I wait and see what happens with the change ?

The server must have both true unless you want to delegate the Master
Browser duties to another machine. Reboot the laptop, I'm not sure if
it has to for the changes to take effect but to be sure reboot it. Then
see what happens. If the error persists then you'll have to look for
other possible causes.
