    SBS Team,

    Anyone know if there is a way to do this? When I connect a Windows 2000 or
    XP PC to the network it can connect to the internet without trouble. It's not
    connected to our network but can freely browse the web.

    I cannot howevermake this work with Win 9X systems. Is there any way to make
    it work? I'm installing the last of my 5 new XP systems to my network this
    week but one of the old "Me" systems is still on the network because it needs
    to be used for Internet access. I really need to free up the user account and
    remove the computer from the network.

    Server - SBS Standard

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Bill V

  2. WINS?

    Hosts files?

    They should [unfortunately] work.

  3. Hello Bill,

    Thank you for posting to the SBS Newsgroup.

    From your post, I cannot completely understand your issue, I guess your
    issue is Windows 9X client workstations which do not join in the SBS 2K3
    domain cannot browse to the Internet. If I have misunderstood your issues,
    please do let me know.

    Due to lack of information, I need your help to gather the ipconfig result,
    to do so, please see:

    On one problematic Window 9X, and the SBS 2K3 server, open command window,
    type "ipconfig /all" (without quotation marks), paste the full content to
    the Newsgroup. [Note]: Please do not customize the results.

    For your additional information:

    1> It is an expected behavior that the Windows 2000 and Windows XP cannot
    browse the domain computers in My Network Places, because they do not join
    in the SBS 2K3 Server domain.

    2> It is also recommended that you install the updated DSclient (the one
    included in the SBS 2K3 setup CD cannot be installed on 98 clients) on the
    98 clients. More detailed information can be found in the KB articles below:

    323466 Availability of the Directory Services Client Update for Windows 95
    and Windows 98
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323466

    226144 NetBIOS Domain Name Field Has a 15 Character Length Limitation
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=226144

    After installing the updated DSclient on 98 clients (you may need to wait
    for some time after the 9x clients'' start until the computer lists are
    synced) you can then view and share the shared computers in ''Network
    Neighborhood'' '' Entire Network '' SBS 2K3 domain, but, the 9x clients
    still fail to show up there.

    You may also need to configure server to turn off SMBsigning as well. For
    more detailed information, please refer to the KB article:

    811497 Error Message When Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0 Client Logs On to
    Windows Server 2003 Domain
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=811497

    It is also a good idea to install the latest DS client from KB323466 so as
    to have a new version of the vredir.vxd file:

    272594 Problems Logging On to a Windows 2000-Based Server
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=272594

    Currently we do not have an official instruction about Windows 98 clients
    in SBS 2003. However, I suggest you can refer to this guide:

    Windows Small Business Server 2003 Getting Started Guide
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=483b6e22-8ed2-420b-
    915e-96d469347fb2&displaylang=en

    I am appreciated your time and cooperation. If anything is unclear, please
    feel free to let me know. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best regards,

    Brandy Nee

    Susan,

    Installed the DS client. Now the PC can connect to the Internet after being
    removed from the domain. It's a PC in our customer service department that
    only needs to have access to track on fedex. None of the PC's in there are on
    our Domain, except this one previously.
