How to map drives across a WAN?

By ted_pas7 ·
We have two IP subnets routed through a 3com 227 by IP. One is 10.0.16.x and the other is 10.0.18.x
The 10.0.18.x side has only Win98 clients; the other side has an NT PDC, and 25 Win95/98 clients.
I can make a telnet connection across the WAN, but cannot see the Win98 clients in Network Neighborhood.
I'm guessing that I need to make changes on the TCP/IP properties on the client side.
Can someone help out?
I'd like to be able to 'see' the opposite side of the WAN from either side.
Ted

How to map drives across a WAN?

Hello Ted,

I am Aravind and joined into techrepublic newly. I think i have the answer for your question.

Create an account in the PDC which has all the rights. Then at the client side install PPTP(Point to Point Tunnelling Protocol) then Choose Dialup netwotking from accessories and Dial to the remote machine. Once the connection is established you can use "net use \\machine\drive$ /user:<userid>"

For this you may have to set the TCP/IP properties to Dial out and dial in

let me know if this is the answer.

regards
Aravind

Two solutions:

1- Install a WINS Server

2- Edit file LMHOSTS on your clients and put these lines:

IP-ADDRESS-OF-YOUR-PDC <TAB>NETBIOS-NAME-OF-YOUR-PDC #PRE #DOM:YOUR DOMAIN NAME
IP-ADDRESS-OF-YOUR-PDC <TAB>"NETBIOS-NAME-OF-YOUR-PDC \0x1b"

NOTE: \0x1b MUST begin as 17th charachter of the NETBIOS NAME.

With these two lines you tell to your client to contact your PDC, across the router, as MASTER BROWSER.

NOTE 2: It works :-)

Configure the Wins on the Win9X machines for the domain.
Remember that you will not see any 9X machines that do not have File and Print Sharing installed and running.

First you must enabel wins in the pdc if you have any bdc enable wins on them. If not you must enable wins in the tcp/ip properties on all the machines on the net. If you have nt workstation in any branches you can edit the hosts tabels and make a masterbrouser in each branch.Than actovate the wins on that.To get the wins to work properly the must point to the pdc's ip adress.If it is through the individual machines or nt servers or masterbrousers.

You could try a LMHOSTS file. But I have a NT box on different segments that cannot see each other in network neighborhood. I installed Reachout or PC anywhere on the server and my PC so that I could connect to the other Server.
