OES2sp8 with Win98-client 3.4's and XPPro-client 4.91sp5's operating two servers in two locations. My accounting software (DOS based) uses a station identifier that is specific to the NIC in each machine. All my win98 machines handle this with ease. I run a few xppro machines. These come up with a station identifier of '0' regardless of how I set up the client. Does anyone have any ideas on how to set up the client 4.91sp5 to accomplish this address handling?

I reviewed the 'advanced settings' in both clients without seeing anything that would cause this.

I'm in the process of upgrading our system to eliminate the DOS based software however the interim system requires that I upgrade the workstations to xppro first. If all my stations have addresses as '0' to the accounting software I'm concerned that I will have a real mess.

thanks in advance
