Anyway I spent the morning going over the school network. What they have is 13
student workstations, 3 office workstations, 1 server, and 2 network
printers. The server has two network cards.
Card #1 is to the school network switch, its configured like this:
Alt DNS 192.168.30.1
Card #2 is to the Internet by a DLS router with a firewall, its configured:
Alt DNS 192.168.30.10
The problem is that the server can see and connect to all the workstations and
printers. BUT the clients can not see or connect to the server. On the other

the clients and that worked. The clients can see and is connected to the Z:
