Seeing NT Server with Win98 workstation

By lylea42 ·
We currently have a peer to peer network with two NT4 file and print servers and 8 Win98 workstations.

Recently we had a crash of one of our Win98 stations and after reloading everything and setting the properties for Network Neighbourhood we canonly see the Win98 workstations in the workgroup which are accessible.

Also of note, we have a second domain and I can access the NT Servers on this domain.

I ideas on how we can get the NT Servers to show up in Network Neighbourhood again.

install file and printersharing and netbeui on the win98, and make sure you have the latest driver for the nic.

I will sent a documentation on how to troubleshoot this type of problems.
it's for all version of windows.

If you are on a peer-to-peer network, then why is your NT server in a domain?

The reason that you can't find the server is that it is in a domain, whereas your Win98 machines are not.

To solve the different problems that you are having with this, and with your other posts, I would recommend installing and turning on the WINS service on your NT server, then point all of your WIN98 and NT servers/clients to point their TCP/IP to use that WINS server (including the server that WINS is installed on).

If you have a domain, then I would go ahead and use the domain for the Win98. You can still do your print/file sharing peer-to-peer, but this will centralize all of the account admin, etc....
