Mac LC111 on NT Network

Mac LC111 on NT Network

Mac LC111 on NT Network

We are having problems with 20 LC111 Macs on our network. They have been given static IP addresses and work ok, but sometimes they cannot logon as there is an IP address conflict as notified by the server. Also, they have been set up to print to a Laserwriter 12/640 and have been operating ok. Recently, they have not been able to see the laserwriter, but they can see the other network printers that have been set up for the PC's(win95). All of these problems appeared to happen all at once with no work or changes having been made at the server. We are at a loss for an answer. Your help would be appreciated.

RE: Mac LC111 on NT Network

Just a few things to throw at you.

What version of the MacOS and appletalk are you using?

Has anyone possibly captured the printer on the NT Spooler port.

what service pack are you using on NT4

RE: Mac LC111 on NT Network

Thanks for replying

Mac OS 7.1

No, printer spooling is disabled, but I must be honest and say that I am not too hot on this subject-advice would be appreciated

Service Pack 5

Thanks for your help, we are only at the early stages of network admin and any advice we receive is greatly appreciated.


RE: Mac LC111 on NT Network

IP address conflicts indicate that something is not properly set-up on the server.
The quickest way to try and fix this is to delete all LCIII users on the NT server,
then set them back up again according to your desired configuration.
This is a lot easier than trying to troubleshoot an obscure problem.
Hope this helps.
