|Here's the thing.|
I own a small business with 10 computer running windows xp and a server running microsoft 2003. I just upgraded one of the computers and it has Windows 7 ultimate on it. When I try to connect to the server using the LAN ip address I get the following error message: This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator.
Thing is, I am the owner of the remote computer and the network administrator!
Now here comes the really weird part. I setup a free dns account (***.dyndns.org) for my network. If I type in the WAN address (***.dyndns.org) the computer will connect to the server. Keep in mind, the computer is connected to the local network.
All of the other Xp computers connect flawlessly. I even have a laptop that i brought in that has windows 7 and it connects to the server using the LAN ip address.
I have searched and searched for answers and still no answer.
