Hi,

I have a laptop on a domain network. I can get onto the internet without any problems.

However when i go to the RUN box and type in a server name...ie \\servername
i get the error message " The network path was not found"

The laptop is joined to the domain ok and i have enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
The network card is aslo working fine.

I have logged in with a few usernames and then typed the server name correctly into the run box but i still get the error message.

Any ideas?

Its ok dsenette, i checked the firewall and for some reason the firewall was blocking the pc from connecting to the network.

All is well now. :whistling:

i know some will disagree...but this is the exact reason why i disable the windows firewall on my domain...i've got two other hardware firewalls on the wire...so i don't need the software ones...i find that in a domain environment the windows firewall causes too many issues...because you either have to write a script to add all the exceptions that you want or go to each machine individualy and allow them...pain in the behind
