Netbeui / TCP

By yawallace ·
I set up a simple peer to peer network 4 ibm600e portables + standalone connected to internet via an ISDN line all running 98SE

Didn't install netbeui and all worked amazingly well. Being portable periodically machines disappear from the networkbut no problem until there was only 1 portable & Server. Both computers disappeared from Network Neighbourhood but returned when Netbeui was added. I have now done this on several occasions. When a third computer is added I can remove Netbeui completely. Is there a reason for this happening. I can live with netbeui but was happier without it.

Part 2)
Network shared Internet connection using ICS. Now Computer will log to internet but can't find any website when ICS is active. The computer is completely isolated from the network and it still happens. What to do?

thanks in advance

Part one:

Do you have any file sharing enabled? If so you should set the Server to maintain browse list. The reason for computers disappearing from network neighborhood is normally becasue there is no master browser on your network.

Not sureabout part two.
