Good day to everyone. I had to re-install windows on our office including the server. I already restored internet connection on all clients. Our server acts as a file storage for backup's. And also other computer connect to internet through this server.

The only problem I'm having is that, client pc cannot map the drive I created for them to store backup files. ICS is properly working because client pc's can connect to internet. It seems that client pc does not recognize the server. I have already checked that all computers are on the same workgroup, same version of windows (windows xp). I may be missing something here, this is the hole of my work "networking". hope someone could help out. Thanks a lot guys!

Server is an HP xSeries 206m, Pentium 4 3.0Ghz, 1gb of ram. windows xp pro. 80GB of hdd (not much for a server). just for xls files.
