Networking Question

By jlbpotter ·
I have an NT4 domain that is set up with an IP address scheme of 192.168.0.1/255 with the default subnet mask. My default gateway is 192.168.0.5. I recently added another scheme on the same physical network. This scheme is 192.168.1.1/255 with the default subnet mask. My default gateway on this scheme is 192.168.1.5. In my Cisco router I have the two gateways bound together. My PDC and my NT4 WINS server are both on the 192.168.0.1 network. The problem that I am having is that I am unable to see the other network when I am browsing the domain through Network Neighborhood, etc. I have no problem connecting to the opposite network through names using UNC. All PCs from both networks are showing up in my WINS database and are getting authenticated logins to my PDC. I need to be able to see all PCs on both logical networks. What am I missing? Thanks.

No, I don't have a WINS server on both subnets. My 192.168.1.1/255 subnet is hitting the WINS server on the 192.168.0.1/255 subnet. The PCs are showing up in the WINS database so I know they are hitting it.

Network neighborhood uses Microsoft networking browser not WINS.

For example, when a user attempts to connect to any network resource, using Network Neighborhood, the list of servers that appears is the browse list. The browse list is provided bya browser in the local computer's workgroup or domain.

The Microsoft networking browser system consists of a domain master browser, master browsers, backup browsers, and client computers. The domain master browser maintains the complete domain browse list. The master browsers periodically query the domain master browser to obtain a complete list of domain resources.

You can see the list with this command:
c> net view /domain:<domainname>

I believe you have to have at least one machine in each subnet that is a designated master browser for that subnet. Perhaps you have the MaintainServerList registry value set to False on all of the workstations/servers in your second subnet. At least one of the machines in this subnet has to have this parameter set to True or Auto, so that it will be able to serve as the msater browser for that subnet and get the full domain browse list from the domain master browser (PDC) in the other subnet. This machine also has to be a WINNT 4.0 workstation or above.

Hope this helps!
