I have a small network of computers that connect to a domain. All of the computers on the domain are currently running XP Pro. The server is running Windows Server 2003 SP2. I have attempted to add a windows 7 machine to the network, but when I type the name of the domain into the dialog box, it always times out. Is there anything that I need to do to either the server or the client in order to get it to connect?

Thanks

Have you read the Win 7 procedures for accessing a network, joining a network?

They are a bit different than those for XP.

Yeah, I have been using this machine for months now on a work group and am just now trying to connect it to the domain. I never can get to the point where it allows me to enter a username and password to connect to the domain before it times out.
