Dial-up Networking Win98 to WinNT 4.0

By jnoland ·
I am setting up a win98 machine to use Dial-up Networking into my companies winNT 4.0 server. I am able to connect to the server with my login and password. When I try to use network neighborhood to see the drives on the server I can't see the server I have dialed into. Can someone clue me in on what I might be doing wrong?

Dial-up Networking Win98 to WinNT 4.0

Right-click Network Neigborhood, and select Properties. At a minimum, you should have TCP/IP Protocol and Client for Microsoft Networks installed. You should also see TCP/IP -> Dial-Up Adapter to prove the binding between TCP/IP and your Dial-Up adapter. Contrary to what someone else said, TCP/IP is the best protocol to use. You don't need NetBEUI. Microsoft runs NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NBT), and it works great.

Next, click the Identification tab. Make sure the Workgroup name is EXACTLY the same as the Domain Name of the system into which you are dialing. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! In fact, if you've done everything else I suggest here, I would bet this is the one thing that is preventing you from seeing your company's resources in your network neighborhood. You'll have to reboot after changing the Workgroup name.

In your Dial-Up "connectoid" for dialing in to your company, select Properties by right-clicking it. Select the Server Types tab and make sure PPP is the chosen type. Check the "Log on to network" box. Check "Enable software compression." Check TCP/IP box (I recommend leaving the others unchecked, unless your company's network administrator tells you otherwise). Click the TCP/IP Settings button. Select "Server assigned IP address" button. Select "Server assigned name server addresses." Check "Use IP header compression" and "Use default gateway on remote network." Click OK, OK.

This should do it for you. If you don't see other computers in your Network Neighborhood, you will eventually. You can go the the Start | Run command box, and type "\\computername" (without the quotes) to browse the resources of some computer on the company network named "computername" (assuming you have the proper permissions). Wait for a response of some sort.
