Unable to Connect to Home Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I setup a Home Server and a XP-Pro in two Virtual PC's hosted on the same machine.

     

    Because I noticed almost everything from Windows 2003 was in, I also setup a small domain (dcpromo) called "Home.lan" (Where did I find that name ?). My XP-Pro is an member of that domain, uses the home-server as only DNS.

     

    When I run the connector-software, I'm unable to connect to the server. I tried the CD, run it from the shared folder and copied the soft to the local drive of my client. I'm still unable to connect to the server ..

     

    I tried it manually (host-name or IP-address), still the same error :

     

    A network error has occurred

     

    I can ping, have access to the shares, firewall are "off" at both sides, XP-pro is accepted by the domain, ... I realy don't see it.
