    Cable ISP Networking

    Locked

    I have two computers on a NT 4.0 workstation platform and geographically separated. They both are on the local Cox Cable IS. They were previously networked and mapped over the IS, but because of a virus the connection was broken. What needs to beset and how do I get these two systems talking to each other again. I can ping both computers, for I have the same IS too. But I need to get them both sharing data again. What settings do I need to set in NT, ie. protcols, sharing etc. I need animmediate reply. Thanks….

      1. You must have TCP/IP set-up and working – this would seem to already be the case as you can ping the machines.
      2. You also need the client for MS networking on the machine you will be connecting from (could be both) and File and Print sharing onthe machine that contains the shares (again, could be both).
      3. Make sure that the computers are both in the same workgroup so that you can browse them.
      4. Now create the shares and make sure that the users (if any) are given rights to it. If you have NTFS installed you can also set file level rights if you want to.
