    Like I said this problem is a little weird and I havent been abel to trouble shoot it.

    Im using Windows Server 2003 on the server and windows XP Professional on the Clients

    My problem is this. When I go to setup a Network connection on a computer i do this:
    Start
    >My Network Places
    >>Add A New Network
    >>>Next
    >>>>Choose another Network Connection
    >>>>>Browse
    >>>>>>Entire Network
    >>>>>>>Microsoft Windows Network
    >>>>>>>>(The name of my network)
    >>>>>>>>>here is where i clock on the server

    the problem is the server is no longer there. I can see all the computers in the etwork except the server.... the weird thing is that all the computers that already have a file on the server can still gain access... I can even type in location on teh address bar and go into the folders I wanted to.. but I can not see the server under network connection...

    Any idea?

    thanks
