I have an iMac lab running 10.3 in my school. Two of the computers when the students try to connect to server won't let them. They can connect to server on other computers but not these two. Any ideas why?


iMac G4, Mac OS X (10.3.9)

    Are you running Mac OS X Server setup with Home directories on the Server, or just casual File Sharing off one Mac designated as the server?

    Are all the Macs set up to get their IP addresses via DHCP?
    Are the Macs that can't connect trying to use an address like 169.254.xxx.yyy ?
    All wired to the same Router? Any using wireless connections instead of wired?
    Can you use Network Utility to "Ping" the Router?
    Can you use Network Utility to "Ping" the server?

    Do you get an error message or just times out? What error message?

    I fiddled around with it and it works now. I am using home directories. I went in and made sure all the settings were correct. Well, anyways, they work now.
