RAS & Browsing Network

By nickpao ·
We use an IBM Shiva RAS server and when we had Windows 95 users dialing in they were able to browse with Network Neighborhood and se the entire NT Domain. Now we are switching to Windows 2000 Professional and the user connects and gets validated ok,but Network Neighborhood browser is empty. I can find PC's using the "Find Computer". Any ideas or troubleshooting tips?

RAS & Browsing Network

Assuming your RAS server is an NT 4.0 server, not a 2000 server, you need to set RAS as follows: do NOT use DHCP to assign IP addresses, set an IP address range on the RAS server and exclude it from DHCP (if you're using DHCP internally). Then youneed to make sure that you assign the appropriate IP addresses in dial up networking on the clients for WINS or DNS, whichever you are using for name resolution. If you've done all this and it still doesn't work, try a HOSTS file on the clients forname resolution. If you still have problems, it is probably a client NIC problem. If your clients are roaming laptops, you need to use a different hardware profile for when they are local (using a NIC) v. when they are using RAS (modem). Hope thishelps!

I have had the exact same problem with windows 98. When you log on to the ras server using ras. It is as if you are logged in on the ras server. Because of the slow wan link, the network is not brocasting the browse list back to you. Make your ras server a wins server and implement wins on all your workstations on the network. configure your dial up clients to use wins. This should do the trick for you. If it doesn't work, try using a lmhost file on the workstation with pre: and:dom statements.
