Connections issue


Recommended Posts

I have 2 Win 8 laptops connected to my WS2012e network. 1 behaves properly and does everything well.


The other has started misbehaving. The symptoms are:


Backups fail

Network printer always showing as offline

Can't connect to server through the dashboard etc.


I can still access shared drives though,


Any thoughts? It's driving me mad.

Are your two W8 client PC joined to the domain? Also check the DNS server settings on both of the clients, are they both pointing to the same place.


Something that I stumbled across a little while ago when I also had an issue with one W8 machine not connecting properly while all the others did, was to disable IPv6 on the problematic machine.
