I am running win2k pro with sp 4.0. I am using TCP/IP, print and file sharing for windows, Client for ms networks and I got desperate and enabled netbeui protocol. I have tried
using static ip addresses, creating Hosts files, defining default gateway (192.168.1.1) Sometimes I can see the other computers in the peer to peer network and sometimes not. They are both new installs of win2k w/ sp4. I try to map a drive on the other pc sometimes it doesn't see the other pc, sometimes it asks me for a login and password for the share (I use the admin login and password) but it asks me again for the
login????

I can ping the other pc I have tried to map drive using: \\ip address\share drive. I can't even use the default share of C$. Once I saw the other computer on the other computers around me but when I try to click on the computer to see the shares, I get "the server is
not set up for this operation" I am peer to peer, I don't have a
server. I have looked at the services and made sure the right ones are
started.

I am at my wits end ... I don't know what else to try. I have logged
into the router and everything is ok. I even disconnected the router
and connected with a switch to eliminate the router as a problem. I
think the problem is in the software but every time I work on it the
symptoms change I can't isolate the issue.

What do you think? I have another peer to peer with 10 PCs and a mix of
wired and wireless connections working fine.
