At my office we have one server (with Windows Server 2000) and 6 workstations (with Windows 2000 Pro).
We are having problems adding one of the workstations to the network (it's hard drive crashed, so a new one had to be put in, thus it's starting from scratch).
Everything I've done to try to map the network drive to recognize that workstation through the workstation itself has been unsuccessful. I just can't find the server and other computers in it's network neighborhood. It does see the internet which comes through the server to the other computers. And some rep from Peachtree (our accounting program) somehow managed to get this workstation to find the Peachtree on the server. Our office thought all was well until we discovered we couldn't "add a printer" to it that is coming off another workstation as the wizard can't find any of the other computers or server.
Oddly, though, there is a printer attached to this workstation which all the other computers CAN access, even though when I look at the network neighborhood on other computers, the troubled workstation doesn't show up on the list. It is Ws3, and the network neighborhood on the other computers show "Server, Ws1, Ws2, Ws4, Ws5, Ws6".
Any advice on what I may be missing in going about adding the Ws3 to the network which, I am guessing, has to be done before I can get all the other computers to show up (including the one with the printer I want to add) on Mr. Ws3's add-a-printer list would be appreciated. To me it all doesn't make sense for it not to show up as part of the network and yet the other computers can see it's printer and it can see the accounting files in the server.
Thanks so much!!
