    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?

I have one error my error is: there is an IP address cnoflinct with another system on the network


"IP conflict on Network" -> means your have 2 or more clients (PC terminals) having the same IP addresses on a workgroup on the Network!

You have to reconfigure your network TCP/IP settings from your Network Connections. You can reconfigure the settings using "Obtain an IP address automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically or do a manual settings using alternate configurations"

Hope it helps.

For the not so tech savvy users it is quite complicated.

Resolving 169.x.x.x IP address problems


This article outlines methods of resolving issues with a 169.x.x.x IP address. This address results from a built in feature of windows called automatic private IP address(APIPA). When your computer is unable to find a DHCP server the APIPA service will assign itself a 169.x.x.x IP address. According to Microsoft, the APIPA service checks for a DHCP server every five minutes.

Releasing the IP address
1. Click on Start and click Run.
2. Inside Run, type ipconfig /release to release the IP address.
3. Then after the IP address is released, type ipconfig /renew

Disabling the Ethernet Adapter
1. Click on Start and right click on My Computer. Then click on Manage.
2. Click on Device Manager and then Network Adapters
3. Under Network Adapters, right click on your Ethernet adapter and select Disable.
4. Wait approximately 5 seconds and right click on it and click Re-enable.
5. This restarts the DHCP client and tries to obtain an IP address from the Network.

Check the Ethernet cable
Sometimes a bad Ethernet cable can cause your system to receive a 169 IP address, try changing out the cable for a new one.
Disable antivirus and firewall applications
Disable/uninstall any external firewall, antivirus, or spyware programs (eg. Norton Internet Security, McAfee Security Center, Trend Micro 2007, Webroot).
Restarting the QoS packet scheduler Protocol
1. Click on Start and click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, double click on Network Connections and then Local Area Connection.
3. Click on Properties and uncheck QoS Packet Scheduler.
4. Click Ok and repeat the process.

Restarting the DHCP service
1. Click Start and select Run.
2. Type services.msc in Run and click Ok.
3. Find DHCP service and right click on it. Click on Stop.
4. Reboot the computer.
5. When the computer boots up, click Start and select Run
6. Inside Run, type the following: netsh int ip reset log.txt
7. Click Ok.

System Restore
1. Open Start and click on Programs and then Accessories.
2. Then click on System Tools.
3. Click on System Restore and select a restore point when you were not experiencing this problem.
4. Restore your system.

For that connect your router to directly to lan ports of your server.and install another ethernet lan card on server so that ports connect with switch.
Then configure your router as bridge connection then set dns as your server ip in all computers.Then you can get 100% fast internet.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Use static IP addresses. Do not DHCP from the router. Still use the same DNS and gateway. Just specify an IP address for each one, preferably not in the DHCP range used on the router.

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.

DNS Name resolution Between private & Public network.


You do not need to configure ISP's PTR records. Instead define their DNS addresses as forwarders in the properties of DNS server under forwarders tab and flush DNS cache.

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.
