Perhaps the last hour of parusing support has been in the wrong place, but in working with a trial version 5.6 of workgroup, I am unable to get a client to connect to the server. There are no networking issues, and using the test function from the server to the client is successful, but the client still never shows up in a list that can be added. - Yes, client and server are on the same subnet. Server and client are win2Kpro w/SP2 - Is there a limitation of the trial version for evaluating the network function? (that would seem odd) Thanks for any replies, bb p.s. BTW, having different licenses based on crossing a routed subnet boundary is... well.. ridiculous and must generate lots of support calls.
