Hello, I was trying to set up a LAN network for FLUENT parallel processing with Windows XP system but I was not sucessful. I would very appreciate you if you could guide me how to set up the network for that, the error message of the FLUENT is "the network path was not found" while the other features of the LAN network work correctly. Regards Amir

I think it's more of a network problem than Fluent's. I've seen Windows give me that error message. Try doing a ping test to your other nodes to see if there's really a functional (not just physical) network connection. I'm not sure about XP but W2k has a file called 'hosts' in the /WINNT folder that helps resolves name addresses to IP addresses, eg. node1.phy.umc.edu = 172.177.0.5. Maybe you need to update that.

Dear cjtune, Thanks for the help, I tried that. Ping works and I can connect to the other PCs. I even downloaded RSHD software which is recommended by FLUENT for parallel processing and installed on two machines. I also made hosts.txt file for introducing the nodes to my PC but after all, I saw the messsage "network path not found" again while I could run commands on other computers like getting directory of the HDD. still have problem! thanks

Maybe you need to share a folder (set permissions correctly) with a specific name?

I have found the FAQ page on the Fluent website extremely helpful. Certain things listed on this page (like the necessity of sharing the FLUENT.INC directory) are not in the installation guide.

Hope this helps,
