    Problem seeing network when dialing into

    Locked

    by cdlampl ·

    When we are not dialed into the other network, we can see our network just fine. As soon as we connect, the LAN no longer exists.. paths and computers are not found (even if we do a find). As soon as we disconnect, everything is back to normal. Ifwe run winipcfg.exe and release, then restore the ip for the network adapter card, then we can successfully communicate with both our network and the one we are dialed into.

    It seems strange that when we dial in, the network settings on the network adapter are changed.

    We are currently running NETBEUI and TCP/IP on our network, obtaining an ip from a DHCP server on our network. The network we are dialing into is also assigning an IP, but it should go onto the dial up adapter.

    We are running Windows 98.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      My guess is that at on the RAS Server you have the protocol settings ‘for this computer only’. As a result dial in users can see no further than the RAS server.

      To test my theory go to the Network Icon, Services, select the Remote Access Server’s properties, I think its then a button that Says network. You can check out for each protocol wether it says ‘for this machine only’ or ‘entire network’.

        We are dialing into another RAS server where we cannot manipulate the settings.

        Thank you for the help!

      What’s happening is your network is being reset when you log on using the modem, thus, this all of your gateways, dns, etc are pointing to the dialup connection instead of the network and I’d be certain that the system you’re dialing into has no idea of the structure of your internal network. Of coarse when th edialup is disconnected, a lease is requested from the network and new ips are assigned.

      There’s not really an easy way to have two ips on a 98 machine functioning at the same time.

      Best way I could think of would be to have a couple of machines with modems on it dialed and connected to these machines all the time and then use a program like winproxy to allow a share to those modems via the local network.

      Good luck to you
