I am working on a office network, with a Windows 2000 Server and 8 Windows XP Pro computers. Recently the Server lost connection to the workgroup, but works fine connecting to the internet through the same network port. I have ipconfig'd restting and renewing, checked the DNS and DHCP settings. No firewall is running, scanned for spyware and virus, none found. Ran winsockfix, but it didn't resolve. The Server provides the error 'a list of servers for this workgroup not currently available'. When using one of the XP computers to try and connect to the Server, the error 'path is not found' shows up. Any ideas how I can resolve this please?
