Network connectivity problem

By jainash25 ·
We have 2 DHCP NT servers with IP Pools of 192.9.201 and 172.16.2 . Our Win98 based PCs obtain their IP through these DHCP servers.

The problem being faced is that the PCs getting IP adresses from the pool 172.16.2 appear in the network neighbourhood but if we try to access these PCs from PCs having IP from 192.9.201 pool, we get the message

" PC_Name" is not accessible, the network path was not found

However, if we use IP to MAP/Connect PCs of pool 172.16.2 from PCs of 192.9.201 pool, we don't face any problems.

How are these 2 DHCP servers connected?
Can you browse these PC's by IP address, if yes it could be a WINS problem..

any additional Information about these 2 DHCP servers could help...
You can contact me on e-mail for further help if you wish....

Good Luck

You may want to look into enabling NetBIOS over IP. This can be done individually in the Network Control Panel. I am not sure but it should also be configurable in DHCP.

Sounds to me like the clients unable to connect are using an incorrectly configured default gateway, or the gateway they use does not have a route to the other subnet. Try using IPCONFIG /all to verify the values.

DNS= IP address to host name, in your dhcp scopes it sounds like there isn't a DNS server entry. Your clients get this information from DHCP you could test this by manually entering this on one of the machienes to see if you an ping a name as apposed to the ip address.

Hope this is usefull.
