Can't see all NT Shares in Net 'Hood

By pcronin ·
Some, but not all of the shares I have created on a NT 4.0 Member server are visible when browsing the server in Network Neighborhood on Win '95 / '98 machines. I am running TCP/IP and NetBEUI protocols.

Why the two protocols,depending on the network set up NetBeui is a non-routable protocol,using TCP/IP would be more fesible,uninstall NetBeui if there is not a need to have it and then reconfigure your TCP/IP settings.

Some shares will not be visible if they have $ on the end of the sharename.

This is true, but not the cause of the problem.

Could it be a rights issue? Try manually mapping drives to the shares you want.

Make sure the share names are all 8 characters or less. Shares names with more then 8 characters will show up on NT machines but will not on 9x machines.

Not exactly the right answer, but it got me thinking in the right direction. Win '9x will not display share names longer than 12 characters in Network Neighborhood.
