browsing thru two local area network

By AllenTech ·
hi,

here is the scenario, for example i have a local area network connected to the internet via dsl modem and it has a router/firewall. and then i have another network but unlike the first one it is not connected to the internet in any way. it isjust a file/printer sharing network. is there anyway that a workstation on the first network(the one that has internet) also view the second network's shared files and devices?

thanks in advance...

Yes, but you need the 2 following things:
1. A physical connection to that second network (i.e. Dial Up internet, DSL internet, Local Ethernet, Wireless).
2. A protocol that is capable of handling the requests, i.e. TCP/IP with Microsoft Windows Networking.

Ofcourse as the 1st network would have a DHCP server as well and that DHCP would have having some scopes defined, so whenever the PC on the 2nd Network would want to access the 1st Network, the IP address would be changed and that IP should be in the IP RANGE of the 1st Network.

Not to forget that by default the IP RANGE of the 2nd Network is in the exlcuded list(means unallowed).
