2000i network version problems

We are having all kinds of problems with our AutoCAD systems. We have a
100mb network with 24 licenses on the network version. yesterday all
stations were down and today some work and some don't. The network admin
has not been able to fix it and the vendor does not know what the problem
is. It seems that we should be able to get some support for 24X$5000 worth
of software. Any one had similar problems with the network version of
2000i? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Just like someone already posted. What kind of OS on both client and
server? What are the specs (RAM, vid card, processor, OS, etc) on the
clients? What protocols are you running? What are the specs on the AdLM
server, RAM, OS, NIC (how many), IP address (is it static), etc.? What kind
of network installation is it, network heavy or full on the client, mixed,
etc.? Can the clients ping the server by IP and computer name? Can the
server ping the clients by IP and computer name?

You question should be in the networking NG as you might get more help
there.

Anne, can you please move these threads to the networking NG?

Oh, I also forgot. What error message(s) are you getting? Do the clients
and server have the same time and date on them?

Anne, incase you didn't see my other request (it was buried in the reply).
Can you please move this thread to the networking NG? Thanks.

As Kevin said we need more information.
Are you running a thin network version or a client deployment and adlm only?
What types of errors are you getting?
What type of network cards are in you win98 machines and how old are the drivers? Win98
is notorious for having bad nic drivers.
What is the average memory on the client machines?
What is the server like memory, speed, hard drive, NIC?
Are drawings stored locally or on the server?
TCP/IP network?
DHCP or static IP addresses?

We'd really like to help you, but we cant without more information.
