Need to see other subnet

By kstauffer ·
I run a school-wide network with a Windows 2000 server and Win9x and Windows 2000 workstaitons. We have 2 different subnets, xxx.xxx.32.xxx and xxx.xxx.33.xxx. I need computers on the 32 subnet to be able to see computers and printers on the 33 subnet and vice versa. How do I go about this?

Set up the server to enable the WINS Service. Make sure all clients have the wins server specified. Once WINS is setup, clients from subnet A should be able to see resources on subnet B.

You need a router or multi-homed server to route between the two subnets as well as a WINS server to resolve NetBIOS names. Assuming your Win2K server already has an IP address in each subnet, then you need to do the following:

1. Set all workstations in Subnet1 to use the Win2K server's Subnet1 IP address as the default gateway.
2. Set all workstations in Subnet2 to use the Win2K server's Subnet2 IP address as the default gateway.
3. If you also have Internet access on this system, you'll have to use static routes to route between the two subnets. You would need to add a static route for each subnet:

route add xxx.xxx.32.0 mask 255.255.255.0 [server's .32 address] -p
AND
route add xxx.xxx.33.0 mask 255.255.255.0 [server's .33 address] -p

Hope this helps!
