Getting Past the Server from the Web

By garoe48 ·
I have a small NT4 LAN set up. I'm also signed up with TZO.COM. I have Proxy Serevr, DNS and WINS set up. Everything is working properly with one exception. Nobody from the net can map to a drive past my server. For example, a buddy across town can map to \\server.domain.tzo.com\d but he can't map to \\other_computer.domain.tzo.com\d. I've discovered a number of possible explanations but I don't know which direction to go. Possible causes are:

My PDC is a multihomed system. The BDC has DNS.The web can't see past the PDC to get to DNS on the BDC but DNS can't be on a multihomed system.

I need NAT (Where? How?) 2000 has it, NT4 doesn't.

I need a public DNS like granitecanyon.com. I tried and can't use that because my dynamic IP changes too often.

Any help would be appreciated because it's a pain right now. I have to get an email, move files to the PDC, get another email when they're processed, remember where they were, move them back, blah, blah, blah.

Thanks, Glenn

have the outside computers use a host file with an entry for your PDC and it's ip address. The only problem you will have is that your IP address changes frequently. Talk with your ISP about getting a static IP for your PDC. Your PDC should then be able to resolve the names of your other systems for your friends.

Good Luck!

Can't get a static address. Might log on from anywhere so can't use a host file. Basically, when you go to a web site you move around different computers. How do they do it? Should be the same for me.

Thanks for trying, Glenn
