Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 11:10 AM (in response to Robert Burdige)Are you using the Mac OS X Server system as your IP network gateway?
(How is your network organized?)
Wired or wireless network?
Are you running your own local DNS server (as is typical) or are you using your ISP DNS servers?
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 12:12 PM (in response to Robert Burdige)Given your Mac OS X Server box is not in the network path between the Windows 7 box and the gateway box, and given everything else "plays nice" here, is there a particular reason why you suspect the Mac OS X Server box is the culprit here? (That in all seriousness; I don't have much information on the network here to hang a diagnosis on.)
If you're running a local DNS server on your network, then I can only presume that you've already checked whatever Windows uses for its network configuration tools these days, reviewed the gateway and subnet mask, and you've tested DNS services between the Windows 7 box and whatever box here is serving DNS, and have found nothing.
Do you have any references to any DNS servers, other than the reference to the DNS server on your LAN?
If other systems on the network are working, then this would appear to be something with the Windows 7 host or network configuration, or with the connection between the Windows 7 box and the gateway, or possibly something with DNS responses from whatever box on the local network is serving your DNS.

Unistalling that old Bonjour sw or maybe replace it with a newer one could help. If you do: route print or maybe: ipconfig /all in a command window what do you get?
