Connecting network segments with Proxy S

By tk421 ·
We have two network segments in the same office. One segment is running a Netware based network, the other is running MS Networking. Each segment is on its own hub. The Netware segment is connected to a DSL router for Internet access. The MS segmenthas a proxy server on it, and is connected to both hubs, giving Internet access to the MS segment.

My question is, is it possible to let certain computers see other computers on opposite segments via the proxy server (which serves as the link between the two segments)? If so, what do I need to do?

Connecting network segments with Proxy S

I'm a little out of my depth here but forget about Proxy Server. GSNW will give you access from NT to Netware. You must also create an NTGATEWAY account on the Netware server. FPNW will allow the Netware side to access file and print services from NT. It sounds like this is what you're trying to do.

Best, Glenn

Hello.

The previous answer will enable your MS clients on the MS Segment to access the resources on the Netware Server. If you want your MS clients to see and access the Netware clients, you will need to add the appropriate Netware redirector onthe MS clients and/or the MS redirector on the NW clients.

Assuming you are using Win95, you would need to add the Microsoft CLient for Netware to client network config. In NT you would add Client Service for Netware to the services under Network config.

You of course will need to mkae sure that the clients are using the same protocol (TCP/IP or IPX/SPX (nwlink for MS)).

This will enable all clients on each segment to "talk" to one another, plus you should then be able to access resources on each server from the different clients.

Hope this helps.

If you requires machines on one segment to access resources on another segment you are will need to link the 2 together, But I would leave proxy out of the picture.
Either purchase a bridge and connect the 2 hubs via the bridge. you could just connect the 2 hubs together although you increase the size of the collision domain be doing this.
Thirdly you could install RRAS on an NT server with 2 NICs installed, 1 to each segment and then configure the box as a router.
