Hi Steve

Have you got a crossover cable to check that the server and a workstaion can communicate over that? I am guessing you have updated the drivers etc. for all the NIC's?

Hi all,

This seems like a stupid question but here goes :

In the lab I have setup a windows server 2003 inc exchange, and two
workstations, at the time I used an old 24 port 10 meg switch and all
works fine, yesterday I got hold of a new 8 port 100 switch and no
matter how I try I cannot get them to communicate, even by pinging they
cant see each other, so I assumed the 8 port to be faulty, today I
purchased a new 8 port switch and still the network does not work.  I
have now tested both 8 port hubs on another test network and both
switches work fine ........ scratching my head now, how come both
switches work on another network but not the domain controlled win2003
server test network ????????  anone shd a light on this for me
