    Can anyone point me in the right direction ?!?

    I have a 3.51 server that is a memeber of a domain. I can successfully ping this server using its hosts name from a workstation on the same domain in the same office area. When I move this workstation to a seperate area in the office I can only successfully ping the server using its IP address. I am unable to connect to any of its resources (Network not found).

    I can however still connect/ping the host name of the other servers on the same domain and in the same location as the faulty server.

    Any comments gratefully received.

    Are you using a name resolution server such as WINS or DNS or are you relying on broadcasts to resolve? Is there any hardware devices (routers) between the server and the new location of the workstation?
