Mac OS/9.2.2 connection problem to a Windows 2000 SBC Server

I appolagize if this turns out to be a double post.

I have a 2 windows 2000 servers.
A is a Windows 2000 SBC Server and the PDCand it has Exchange running.
B is a Windows 2000 Member Server.

Both servers have all the latest software updates I could download.
Both have SFM running and I have checked that the service is running
on both. Both have AppleTalk up and running. Both computers showup in
my Macs OS 9 Chooser when I click on the AppleShare icon.

My Mac computer is a Mac G3 running a fresh new install of OS 9.1 and
has been updated to 9.2.2.

Here is the problem with the order of events
1. On the mac I click on the chooser, appleshare, then server a. I
then click the Ok button. I am prompted with the default clear
password logon dialog asking me to enter the username/password or to
use guest. Guest is enabled.

2. I select the option to logon as guest and click "connect"

3. the Mac sits there for about 10mins with the hour glass until I get
the following message: The connection to this server has been
unexpectedly broken.

4. I have tried to use a valid windows domain user account and still
get the same behaviour as above. I have even tried to include the
domain along with the user name.

Now, the funny thing is if I perform the same steps above but select
server "b" from the chooser, I get connected to the server and I am
promted to select what MS UAM volume I want to mount.

I just dont understand why I can get connected to server B but not A
nor do I know what is causeing the error with server A.

Any ideas?

Hi Chris!

A guess. This may be a problem with TCP/IP. You browse using Appletalk,
but when you connect the Mac attempts to make an IP connection. You can
verify this is the problem if you Option + click the server in the
Chooser to force your connection to Appletalk instead of IP. If you
connect then you may need to check your Mac's TCP/IP settings. In
particular make sure "Load only when needed" is unchecked.

Hope this helps! bill

Bill,

I was able to connect to Server A by using the "Option + click".
I unchecked the IP settings and rebooted the Mac and tried again with
IP. No luck, still timed out.

My MAC's IP settings are via. DHCP. What am I missing? A host entry
for the server name??

Thanks alot, I have been messing with this for the past 4 days.

Hi Chris!

Glad to hear you've narrowed down the problem.

Let's narrow this down a bit. Can you use the Chooser to "Connect to
Server" using the server's IP address? By name? If so, then you do have
a name resolution problem most likely with DNS.

If your company has an internal domain such as domain.com then you might
try adding this to the domain suffix search field in your Mac's TCP/IP
Control Panel. Save your settings and try connecting again.

If this doesn't work, then manually enter your DNS server's IP address
in your Mac's TCP/IP Control Panel.

If that doesn't work and you are sure the DNS server has the file
server's DNS settings, then I'd guess that DNS is not working at all for
your network and any Windows machines are resolving names via WINS or
broadcast.

Hope this helps! bill
