As long as youíre sure the cabling is working correctly itís probably a permission problem, probably to do with user and group rights. Without seeing how the network is setup itís hard to say exactly why youíre getting that error. The basics of networking are:
The server needs the right to access a computer and the work station computer needs the right to access the server. Read the reply I added to your previous post and see if anything there helps. W2k can be a bit stubborn; I get that error also after Iíve pulled a computer off the network and then try to add it back on. In fact I had it the other day on a network I was working on; it turned out to be a bad switch wasnít allowing the computer to connect to the network.
After youíve made sure itís not a hardware problem and youíre sure all the permissions are correct, try accessing the computer through explorer. Sometimes the username and password box will pop up that way. Remember, you really arenít accessing the computer you are accessing the computers drives.
