RAS

By bgarner67 ·
I have NT server 4.0 with 2 modems connected. I installed RAS services and configured it w/ 3 ip addresses and for it to authenticate via clear text. I also installed WINS to point back to itself and configured the laptop trying to dial into the server to use wins. It logs me onto RAS, but I can not browse the network or use my shared drives. Does any one have an aswer for this?

RAS

If you're trying to view Windows Shares, you'll need to make sure that NetBEUI is installed and bound to RAS. (or enabled in the RAS/DUN setup) Alternatively, you could enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP. Also, make sure you have a user created on the Server with the proper permissions for the shares. Check that the user logged into the laptop (NOT DUN/RAS) is the same (including password) as the corresponding user on the Server.

Ras users' laptop is setup on the server, but I don't really need netbeui I can use TCP/IP

This may sound incredibly dumb, but I'm fairly new to NT - in RAS, is the option to Browse Entire Network selected? I bumped into that one a while back; had it set to This Computer Only. As for the shared drives, has this user (or the user's group) been specifically granted access rights to each? I generally share resources with Groups, rather than users, but I've found that when new users are added, they don't always get added to the default Domain Users group, and I have to manually add them to allow access to shares.

It is set to Browse Entire Network, non-RAS users on the network have shared drives. RAS users have dial-in rights!

Did the laptop get the Logon Window once connected to the network?
If not, you need to setup the network option on the laptop control panel.
Add Clients for Microsoft Network, add the protocol(s) you're using, make sure you have the dialup adapter installed there too.
Click on the Clients for Microsoft Network, Properties, select logon to domain, fill up the domain name and on the second tab (identification), the workgroup if you created one or just the domain name.
reboot and you should be on the network.

Good luck!

Is your WINS server also your RAS server? Are all your non-RAS clients configured to use WINS and pointed at the same WINS server, or is WINS being replicated between more than one WINS server?

The Ras server is the PDC and also the WINS. I have not configured all the non RAS clients on the network, but have configured clients dialing into RAS.
