The problem that I am having is that after an extended amount of time I can no longer access these folders. My computer says it cannot find the resource or that I do not have permission.
What is even more strange is that the win 2000 machine cannot even access its own share folders through network neighborhood.
The only solution I have found is to re-boot the machine. Not a very good one...
as for your questions. the computer does not go into standby or hibernation. It is a desktop directly connected with gigabit nic.
I thought maybe it was my firewall (kerio 4.2) but when I turn it off the problem still persists.
on my main pc I have a few shortcuts on my desktop that link to the share on the slave machine.
the 1st link is just to the computer itself, when i dbl click it this is the error I get.
\\slave-machine is not accesible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the network path is correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off. If windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network administrator.
on the slave machine I opened up comp management/sys tools/ event viewer and these are a few of the errors listed.
under aplication - info
The timeout waiting for the performance data collection function "PerfProc" in the "C:\WINNT\system32\perfproc.dll" Library to finish has expired. There may be a problem with this extensible counter or the service it is collecting data from or the system may have been very busy when this call was attempted.
that error is duplicated about 15-20 times.
then under system I get
The server was unable to allocate a work item 341 times in the last 60 seconds.
