Subnet browsing

By darrenb ·
I have 1 PDC with 6 differnet subnets on the other side of this router. Why can't I browse to these subnets. I don't want to enable BOOTP on the routers.

I have setup 1 Master Browser on each NT workstation 4.0 sp6 for each subnet, as well I am utilizing WINS. I have tried adding in hosts and lmhosts files as well to no avail.

Is this not possible?

Can you ping to the other subnet?

If not try adding a static route to the routing table on the machine that you are trying to ping from. To do this type the following at a command prompt.

ROUTE ADD DestinationIP MASK Subnet Gateway
EX. ROUTEADD 100.0.0.1 MASK 255.255.0.0 100.0.2.1

You will not have to reboot to test.

I hope this helps

I can ping the server, tracert takes me right there in 2 hops.

User can also connect for his mail through MS exchange.

Part I
Q158487--Browsing Across Subnets w/ a Multihomed PDC in Windows NT 4.0

1. Run Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).

2. From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following subkey:

SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters
3. From the Edit menu, select Add Value and use the following entry:

Value Name: UnboundBindings
Data Type: REG_MULTI_SZ
String: NetBT_

If you have more than 2 network adapters in the multihomed Windows NT server,
enter each driver instance you wish to disable on a separate line in the
String field.

For example, if you need to disable the browser binding for an Intel
EtherExpress Pro network adapter, the string would be NetBT_EPRO1. To
determine the name of your driver for your network adapter, look in the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
key for a name that corresponds with your network card.

My PDC is not a multihomed system. Each subnet uses a router.

Thanks though.

Part II
NOTE: There will be at least two entries for each network adapter--use the one
that ends with a number. For example, when the Intel EtherExpress Pro network
adapter driver is installed, it adds EPRO and EPRO1 entries in the Services
registry key. The EPRO entry corresponds with the binding and driver
information for all EtherExpress Pro cards that are in the computer, and the
EPRO1 entry is for one specific instance of the driver, with specific
settings for one particular card. If a second EtherExpress Pro card were
added to the computer, an EPRO2 entry would be added to the registry and
would contain card-specific information (IRQ, I/O address, and so on).

4. Quit Registry Editor.

5. Shut down and restart Windows NT.

6. Once Windows NT restarts, you can test if the UnboundBindings parameter
worked by inspecting the Event log. There should be only one browser 8015
event ("The browser has forced an election on network \Device\NetBT_NETFLX2
because a WindowsNT Server (or domain master) browser is started.") that
corresponds with the card for which you have not disabled the browser
binding.


For Static entries in Nethood

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Computer.

2. In the Namedbox, type "ComputerName" (without the quotation marks) (where
ComputerName refers to the name of the computer you are statically adding to
Network Neighborhood), and then click Find Now.

3. After the computer is found, drag the computer icon into Network
Neighborhood. Click Yes, when you are prompted to create a shortcut.

4. After you put the icon into Network Neighborhood, you can rename it. To
populate many computers on the LAN/WAN, the .lnk files created during this
process can becopied to the NetHood folder of any user profile. After you
log off and then log back on, the static entries in Network Neighborhood are
permanently listed.

The latter works, but this is alot of work for all the different subnets. Why won't the bowse masters on the subnets send their browser annoucements to the server (PDC) and vice versa if the names have been resolved.

Appreciate your help!
