    Hello everyone, We just upgraded our server to windows 2008. We didn't
    realize there would be an issue with our machines until all of them couldn't
    connect to the server. Our Milling machines range from windows 95 to NT 4.
    We don't have the firewall on the 2008 server but the machines say the same
    thing. Unable to lcoated network device. We can ping the server and we can
    connect to our 2003 server just fine so it is like windows 2008 doesn't allow
    the NT 4 or 95 clients to access it. does anyone have any ideas?

    It could also be a problem with NTLM on devices as old as that. They
    probably can't handle NTLMv2.

    Not to mention using WINS instead of DNS
