PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win 98/2000/XP
Problem Application Name & Version:Microsoft Network
Problem Hardware Make & Model:PC
Error Messages:Workgroup is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions.
Same message on all 80+ workstations when trying to Browse Workgroup.
I can search for Computer and find it. I can Map drives to shares if I use //computername/share.
Crazy I know but true.

Thanks for your help.

james:

Are all the machines in the same workgroup? How are you handing out IP addresses? I suggest you try enabling Netbios over TCPIP. It sounds like it could be a browser issue.
