Workgroup to Windows Server 2016

    Question

  • We are a manufacturing company with lasers that used to connect to the server but no longer can. The lasers are running Windows for Workgroups but the server is now running Windows Server 2016. I can't see these through the server obviously. How can I get them to communicate with the server?

  • Hi Steverdan,

    >>I can't see these through the server obviously

    Did you mean that you cannot view the server by following Network?

    Please try to ping windows server on workgroup client to check if connection is correct.

    Please try to disable firewall on windows server.

    Please ensure windows server has joined the same workgroup with clients.

    Best Regards

    John
