I have a Dedicated T1 line To another town, and i can ping everybody to each other, however when i go to my network places I can not see them and they can not see my side of the network. I know there is som command to put in the router to fix this. Can you tell me what that might be?
Please help,

Set your IP to Example: ( 172.20.20.1 ) on your first computer ( 172.20.20.2) for the next computer and etc. etc....

and as for subnet mask put (255.255.255.0) same for all computers

the workgroup must be the same.

They Have always been set up that way, however I know there is some router command that can allow this, because I have seeen it done. I need to find out what that command is.

Please let us know what router and OS you're using.

Since you can ping IP addresses to and fro I don't think the issue is with the router but probably somewhere in the network settings.

Since the router seems to be doing what routers do, I'dcheck to make sure that the network is set up correctly. Making changes to the router may just create a worse situation.

Start with the basics and work your way from there.

Do all the PCs belong to the same and can you at least see the workgroup?

All the following need to match
Workgroup
Client
Protocol ( you've got that correct)
Sharing

With Windows NT,2000,XP the users will not be able to see others unless added as users on the PCs being connected to. Have you done this. Also remember that the local login name and password must be the same as assigned on the PCs being accessed.


Good luck
