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.

Use lmhost feature in network neighborhood, import a full host file configuration. Also be sure your Default and subsequent gateways are setup in sequence.

This is a agreement more then a answer.
I have two sites connected over a WAN,with 1 NT PDC at one location with 98 clients.
At the other location there is NO BDC and 98 clients hiding behind NAT on a cisco 1600 series Router.
The only way I could get the two sets of clients to see each other was with the Wins/LMhost solution similar to what "Pila" already suggested to you.
