    Domain / Network....but now after receiving my client
    machine back from repairs I cannot setup A Remote desktop
    Connection or a MS Windows Network connection or even

    Hi Baljit singh

    You had mentioned that you are reconnecting your
    client machine to your existing Domain physically, be
    sure that the ip address is in same class or in a same
    subnet? Are you able to ping that servers? Then try to
    ping that seervers by using its ipaddress first, if it is
    pinging the connectivity problem is over.

    For Terminal services (Remote Desktop) you have to
    find out a folder named TSCLIEN in a root folder inside
    in a root directory (WINDOWS). Share that folder and
    take access from your client, and install it in your
    client while installing give the Administrator`s user
    account name and password credentials and Terminal
    server`s IP Address.

    If you are having Windows server 2003, in this case,
    please put a Windows 2003 server cd rom in your client
    machine in the setup program launches automatically. On
    that select services - remote control - OK. This will
    installs the Terminal services tor Windows server 2003.
    Again give the logon credentials and IP address of a
    Terminal server.

    For hardware: Please verify that your local NIC
    card`s device driver is properly working and installed.
    If it having an yellow color excalmatory mark means there
    is some problem in your NIC card`s driver, not only in
    driver the problem is in entire TCP/IP.

    And, please make sure that your NIC card is
    connected and seated properly in your Mother board. Or,
    if you are having onboard NIC card means leave it...
    Then check the physical connections of RJ45 cables with
    your NIC card and with hub.
    If any queries means please post a mail to me.

    Hope this small notes will help you better!!!

    With regards

    he did, just a month late:
    References: <04a301c51761$96d27a50$>

    so it has aged off unless you actually open the headers and click the
    reference there's no trace of it. quoting the post would be nice though.
