I'm yuppicide. Sorry to have to create a second account.. since the switch to the new website/forums or whatever I can't seem to get back in.
Anyway, I know Navision 3.10 doesn't really work with Windows 7, but we're doing it with Virtual XP Mode.
I've got 3 computers in the office still using XP I believe, and 3 or 4 using Windows 7.
We originally had Navision on an old Windows 2000 server, but it was giving us some problems, so we moved it to our main Windows 2003 SBS server. That was working fine for awhile, but that server had some issues. We lost a bunch of data, and re-keyed in manually like 6 months worth of data. But about 2 weeks ago, the server finally bit the dust. Maybe a faulty RAID drive.
So, we moved the server over to a computer in the office that's not being used. 99% of the time this desk is unoccupied, but it has a computer there. Most of the time it's only used as a gateway for our outside network consultant to connect to us if he needs to do any work. Windows 7 machine.
We have a Linksys WRT54G I believe as a router router. But we're all connected by ethernet.
So he set up the server there. Let's say the IP was 192.168.1.150. He pointed our Navision there and we were getting frequent disconnects. And when we got disconnected it would often say we can't login due to number of licenses. He figured out how to get us to stay connected, not sure what he did, but all was fine.
Problem with that old router is we only see about half the internet speeds we pay for and wireless was often disconnecting, prompting us to have to unplug and replug in the router.
So we purchased a new router.. Netgear Nitehawk R7000. This is an AC1900 router. Now we get disconncted like every 50 minutes or so.
The error message we get:
The server is not responding anymore (TCP/IP error ECONNRESET).
Try the following steps in the order specified to resolve the problem:
1. Start the client again.
2. Start the server and then the client again.
3. 3. Check the TCP/IP installation.
See the network documentation for additional information. Contact your system manager if you need assistance.
After clicking OK it says:
The connection to the server was interrupted because of a communication error.
Start the client again.
After we click okay we go to File, Database, Close, and then exit Navision. We wait about 2 minutes and are able to log back in. But as noted before, sometimes you can't log in due to licenses because some people are logged in twice.
I do not have access to anything myself, but I am wondering if there's some information I can give to my Operations Manager / Network Consultant to try and help the issue. Obviously I hope they don't return the new router since our cell phones are allowed to connect to it for internet and it provides us the stable connection and faster speeds.
