I have a Windows 2000 domain controller. I created an additional domain controller and created shared folders for users, but the users are not able to access those folders using Windows XP. Even after accessing and giving a username and password, it does not allow users to access the shared folders. How can this be resolved?
You can check the Event Viewer to look for any errors on either the server or client, and verify the DNS settings on the 2000 server. You can also run a packet sniffer like Network Monitor or Ethereal to determine how network traffic is being transmitted to and from your server, and if any packets are being dropped or otherwise blocked.
