Vista Wont Connect to Server


P

proteus71

I am an admin for a school network. Student laptops are in a workgroup.
Network servers are in a domain. There are about 100 student Vista laptops
that can connect to the main file server (Windows Server 2003). I have 2
Vista laptops inn the same workgroup that can't. Users typically go to
Internet Explorer and type \\servername. They then get the username/password
login message. The 2 users that have problems get an error message (don't
know the exact message at this time). One of these users has an Asus laptop
with Vista Home Premium 64-bit, and the other has Home Premium 32-bit. I have
ensured that network discovery is on, changed network to private, and made
sure LLTD is enabled, and all firewalls are off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I will try to provide any info
that is requested.

Don't you think this is a much more appropriate post for:

microsoft.public.windows.vista.general or the like?

Yes?

I agree with the other response--this is not the right newsgroup--this one
is for Windows Defender issues related to networking.

My thought about your issue is that perhaps this might be related to signed
communication between the server and the workstations--but when you do post
to the correct newsgroup, get the details on that error message--that may
help.
