    Windows 2000 Pro Configuration Issue:
    I have recently relocated my business and am setting up my LAN again. I am currently working with just three computers, more to come. Let's call these computers 1,2 & 3. When clicking on My Network Places in Computer 1, the computer pulls up icons for all three computers. If I click on the icons for 1 and 3, the file structure is accessible. If I click on the icon for 2, it returns the following message "The server is not configured for transactions". If I click on My Network Places in Computer 2, the icons for all three computers are there, and if I click on an icon for any of the three computers, the file structure is visable. I have tried everythink I can think of to make sure Computer 2 resources are shared. Anybody got any suggestions?

    Obviouse answers:

    make sure you have File and Print sharing enabled on Comp 2

    make sure you have created Users that are allowed to access comp 2, on comp 2 (if comp1 is logged on as user1, then you need to create a user1 account on comp 2)

    I've moved this out of Business applications and into the Windows forum. I've also changed the name of the thread to something technically meaningful...I hope. :)

    RandyG is correct. In addition make sure you have logged on to computer2 as admin when you assign share rights or things to share for the computer.

    Are you using a router for your network?
