I can see my exchange server under Entire Network and so I thought my client
does not need DNS. Also, I have WINS installed. Anyway DNS is installed and
working correctly I think. I have Norton Antivirus corporate edition
installed on the exchange server. Could that be creating a problem? Thanks
for your help.
