The macintosh lose connectinon after a few days

(OP)
The Macintosh lose the abilities connect to the NT server after a few days, nothing have change in the server side but I have to reboot the serve before the Mac could connect agin.

Thanks for any inputs

RE: The macintosh lose connectinon after a few days

Is the MAC connecting thru TCP/IP to NT?
If so you need to find the IP address of the MAC

I supect your TCP/IP Lease has expired.
Are you using a DHCP server to allow clients to connect
if so open it.
Click on the "Scope" Menu then click "Properties"
you should see Lease duration. Is it limited to a number of days?

hope this Helps

Thanks DougP,

I think you are correct in this case, I am using DHCP to pass out the IP's.
What is the command on the Mac to renew a lease.

Thanks

This can only on your done on your PDC (Primary Domain Controller) She's the heart of your Network "Scotty"

Can you go in the PDC Server?
do you have Admin priv. If so

click Start, Programs, Administrative tools, DHCP manager

As mentioned above once inside "DCHP manager"
Click on the "Scope" Menu then click "Properties"
you should see Lease duration (at the bottom). This is the only way to change it.
Cause otherwise Clients could go change it when time ran out which would not be secure.

I don't know how to spell "macintosh" let alone where to go in it.
