Re: Unable to connect to file servers


Are you using Hyperterm on the Vista laptop? I understand that there are issues with Hyperterm and Vista. I would suggest that you try a different terminal program and see if it makes a difference.

There are quite a few terminal programs available and many of them are free. I know people who are using PuTTY and are happy with it. I know people who are very happy with TeraTerm. My personal preference is SecureCRT (but this is the one that is not free).



Re: Unable to connect to file servers


Did you check the error code in the Vista event viewer? Microsoft have link to KnowledgeBase for every error code.

You mentioned that you just got the Vista laptop. Thus this means you previously have a old laptop and could it be XP laptop? Did you name your new Vista laptop the same name with your XP laptop? Do you need to login/join to a domain before accessing the file server? You may need to ask the domain/fiel server administrator for help, or unjoin/rejoin your laptop from the domain.
