    Is it possible the IP adress changed? Or maybe the thing isn't responding because after formating it wasn't callibrated right
    Could you explain a bit more?

From client pc
1.) click start
2.)click run
3.)in the box that opens, type cmd
4.)click ok button
A black box will appear
5.) type ipconfig
6.)press the enter key
Some lines of text will appear. One of these lines says IP Address please take note of the numbers to left of this. This is your Clients IP address
Now, you said your server IP address is 192.168.1.2 and lets say from the instructions I just gave you that you find your client IP address is 192.168.2.5. If your client pc does not have an IP address that begins with 192.168.1 it will not see your server. Also, If your client pc in question has an IP address the same as another one of your client pc's it will not see a server.
I suggest the following.
Change the IP address on your client pc following these steps
From the desktop of the client pc
1.)click start
2.)open control panel
3.)double click Network Connections
4.)right click Local Area Connection (it is possible to have more than one)
5.)left click properties
6.)a window will open, in the middle of this window is box you can scroll down in, scroll down and find TCP/IP
7.) left click on TCP/IP to highlight it
8.)once highlighted click the properties buttton just below the scroll box.
9.)another window will open
10.)click the dot next to Use the following IP Address
11.) enter the following
IP Address = 192.168.1.??? (replace question marks with a number of your choosing. Just dont go above 254 and don't use a number that you are using on your other pc's)
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.1.2
12.) click ok
13.) click ok on any other open windows and reboot PC. then test connectivity.

PLEASE NOTE: There are alot of things that can change what you need to enter for the Gateway, Subnet Mask and IP address. Generally with simple networking it is what i have described above but if you have a Cable/DSL router for internet or wireless router then the numbers you must put in these fields changes. The directions I gave you above is assuming that you just want to get your pc talking to your server. It does not take into account any routers or advanced networking equipment. If you do have a router I will need more info and a somewhat different set of directions will apply.

    Well,

    If you can ping it, then communication is not the issue. Perhaps it is rights? Do you log in to the pc as the same user as the other pc's?

How can i get an ip address


Firstly, what operating system are you using?
applicable for windows xp or windows 7. press Windows Key + R
select the appropriate network connection (e.g. Local Area Connection). Right click the Local Area Connection choose Properties. For windows xp, doble click Internet Protocol. For Windows 7, double click Internet protocol IPv4. choose Obtain an IP address automatically. press OK. right click again the Local area connection then choose Status. there tou can see that your computer is negotiating for an IP address from the dhcp server. if still cannot obtain an ip address, press Windows key +Run then type "services.msc". scroll down and find DHCP client. ensure that this service is running.
Please also try to check if the network you are connected does have a DHCP server.

DHCP Server configuration in Linux


Linux is a UNIX based operating system. It is a server operating system. REDHAT Linux is Enterprise version of Linux. Now a day's Most of corporate sectors use red hat Linux as server in their company because it is secure very much.

Full form of DHCP "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP server assigns IP addresses and other network configuration information like subnet mask, broadcast address, etc to computers on a network. The DHCP assignments are the following.

Lease Request: Client broadcasts their request to DHCP server with a source address of 0.0.0.0 and a destination address of 255.255.255.255.
IP lease offer: DHCP server replies with an IP address, subnet mask, network gateway, name of the domain, name servers, duration of the lease and the IP address of the DHCP server.

Lease Selection: Client receives offer and broadcasts to al DHCP servers that will accept given offer so that other DHCP server need not make an offer.

The DHCP server then sends an ack to the client. The client is configured to use TCP/IP. Lease Renewal: When half of the lease time has expired, the client will issue a new request to the DHCP server.

Installation of DHCP server: First of all while install the RedHat Linux enterprise version server be careful about the ports and the services must be turned on. To create DHCP server in Linux first download DHCP RPM package and install with "rpm-ivh" command. Where I have done it there I have create YUM server, so easily I have download and install it by YUM (yum install dhcp version). DHCP package will locate in /usr/share/doc/at Linux file system. I copied the DHCP's files from /usr/share/doc/ to /etc/dhcpd.conf.. Then I started to configure the dhcpd.conf file to route the DHCP server in there local network. I have open the configuration file with "vi" command. Then commented out the lines from "default gateway to option netbios" because system don't read the commented lines. After that I set the range of IP address in dynamic- bootp of their local assumption of system. I have change the "next-server" with the dhcp server name and have also change the fixed address with the dhcp server IP address (end range of dynamic IP). It is very easy job to configure DHCP server. After configure the .conf file of dhcp just turn on the service with "chkconfig" command and restart the dhcp service. After that entire job I reboot the system. And after rebooting of server I turned on the other client system. While startup the client system without static IP address all of those picked up IP from dhcp server and going on successfully. I have prefer the command line mode to do the total job.
The DHCP server configure file is following:

ddns-update-style interim
ignore client-updates

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# The range of IP addresses the server
# will issue to DHCP enabled PC clients
# booting up on the network

range 192.168.1.201 192.168.1.220;
# Set the amount of time in seconds that
# a client may keep the IP address

default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 86400;

# Set the default gateway to be used by
# the PC clients

option routers 192.168.1.1;
# Don't forward DHCP requests from this
# NIC interface to any other NIC
# interfaces

option ip-forwarding off;

# Set the broadcast address and subnet mask
# to be used by the DHCP clients

option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

# Set the NTP server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option ntp-servers 192.168.1.100;

# Set the DNS server to be used by the
# DHCP clients

option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# If you specify a WINS server for your Windows clients,
# you need to include the following option in the dhcpd.conf file:

option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.100;

# You can also assign specific IP addresses based on the clients'
# ethernet MAC address as follows (Host's name is "laser-printer":

host laser-printer {
hardware ethernet 08:00:2b:4c:59:23;
fixed-address 192.168.1.222;
}
}
#
# List an unused interface here
#
subnet 192.168.2.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

    I have a yellow machine p400t and i need to give it a static IP address and do this through a linksys router. how do i go about this? do i need to attach it to a computer?


    Yes, it must be attached to the network 0. Install the yellow machine software on the PC 1.Log on to the Yellow Machine Manager. Go to “Logging On To Yellow Machine Manager” on page 8. 2.From the Yellow Machine Manager, click Network > Network Interfaces. The Network Interfaces window appears. 3.Click Edit. 4.Select Yes to Enable LAN Interface. Default: Yes (Enabled) • If you select No, all other LAN option fields are blocked. • If you disable the LAN Interface, the only access to the Yellow Machine appliance is through the WAN port. Anthology Solutions does not recommend this configuration. 5.Check Enable DHCP Service if the DHCP service is needed for the PCs attached to the Yellow Machine appliance’s LAN ports. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance the DHCP server for your LAN (or sub-network), providing IP addresses dynamically for the clients connected to the LAN ports. Default: Checked (Disabled) 6.Select either Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server, or Static IP Address. Default: Static IP Address • Choose Obtain IP Address Automatically from DHCP Server if your Yellow Machine appliance connects to either a router that has DHCP service enabled or to a cable modem. This setting makes the Yellow Machine appliance a DHCP client on your network. • Obtain IP Address from ADSL provider is greyed out. • Choose Static IP Address if your network is locally defined and controlled and does not use DHCP services. Type the IP address manually. 7.Specify IP address and Subnet mask if you selected a Static IP Address, and click Apply. 8.Click Yes to confirm, No to abort. The changes takes affect within five seconds after the network interface change notice appears.

    So you verified ICMP traffic isn't blocked and it appears the servers allow the netBios traffic to pass.

    On the client machine, check to make sure the windows print and file sharing is installed and the machine isn't blocking netBios traffic.

    Make sure TCP ports 137,139, and 445 are open on the xp machine and any devices in between.

    It's acting like the TCP data is being blocked by the client machine.

    This is an excerpt from a MS Technet page for error 53:
    Resolutions: 1) if it is domain environment, check your WINS; 2) if it is peer-to-peer workgroup, enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP; 3) make sure the machine is running; 4) make sure file and Printer Share enabled on remote computer; 5) make sure client for ms networks is enabled on local computer; 6) make sure you type the correct name. 7) Make sure no firewall running or any security setting.
    Pay close attention to #s 4 and 5 - I suspect XP pro might not be open enough.

    Difference between DNS and WINS


    WINS is Windows Internet Naming Service, a system that determines the IP address associated with a particular network computer. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windowsand can provide name resolution for other computers with specialarrangements. Determining the IP address for a computer is a complexprocess when DHCPservers assign IP addresses dynamically. For example, it is possiblefor DHCP to assign a different IP address to a client each time themachine logs on to the network.

    __________________________________________________

    DNS, a.k.a Domain Name System is a database system thattranslates a computer's fully qualified domain name into anIP address.Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to eachother, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. Forexample, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain namewww.amazon.com than it is to remember its correspondingIP address (207.171.166.48). DNS allows you to connect to anothernetworked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domainname rather than its numerical IP address. Conversely, Reverse DNS(rDNS) translates an IP address into a domain name.
