System Does Not See Itself

By tkemm ·
We have networked peer to peer systems using Win95. One system sees it self and can access the other machine on the network. The problem machine when you go into network neighborhood does not see it self or anything on the network(the one other machine). we have removed and reinstall all of the networking software. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks
Terry

System Does Not See Itself

by pc-tech In reply to System Does Not See Itsel ...

I don't know if this is going to be much of an answer, but I have a similar problem on my home network. I have a Win95 and a Win98 machine, both of which are connected together through a hub, which is also connected to a DSL modem.
The Win98 machine works fine, but when I start the Win95 it does not see anything. The only way I get it to work, is to disconnect the DSL modem, and the Win95 from the network, and connect the Win95 directly to the modem. Once the Win95 has finished booting, everything works fine. It almost seems that the Win95 machine needs to find somthing to assign it's addresses when it boots and can then use those addresses on anything it connects to.
I have already set the addresses in the TCP/IC configuration, but that didn't seem to help anything.
The next thing I am going to try is a new NIC in the Win95 machine.
I dbout that this information helps any, but I thought you would be interested in hearing it. If you get any further information, please let me know.

I can not remember how to set sharing on windows 95. If you set sharing in 95, the computer id will show up in neighbor network.

I dont know what your network settings are but this is what needs to be done for the to work. (your harware works since one system can see the other)you need a client (e.g. client for ms networks) next you need an adapter listed. If the driver is loaded ok (confirm in dev manager) it will be listed. You also need a protocol can be either netbeui, tcp/ip or ipx/spx. If you use the latter you need client for netware networks. netbeui is the easiest to install and fastest in transport. I would suggest this one if you dont have access to the internet. Ok so you have your 3 components in the settings listed. make sure to add file & print sharing. once the system is rebooted you also need to share an obect(drive, folder or printer) in order for the system to be seen on the network. If this doesnt happen you have a problem with your network settings. good luck

As a default win98 installs only the TCP/IP protocol, but win95 loads TCP/IP, IPX/SPX/ and NetBEUI protocols. I ran into this problem myself. You have to load add all three protocols to your win98 system and make sure all three are in your win95 system. Right click Network neighborhood --> add --> protocols --> microsoft. The protocols are all in there on both systems. The make sure you have file and print sharing turned on and also make sure both sytems are using client for microsoft network.I did this and my sytems saw both each other and can share between themselves. Also make sure your drives and printers are set for sharing. Hope this helps.

If the machine you are using cannot see itself, this indicates that you have not switched on File and Printer sharing under Properties for Network Neighbourhood. If you cannot see the other machines, then either the network protocols are not installed properly (you state that you have already re-installed), you have a faulty network card, or you have not given both machines the same workgroup membership.

Hope this helps
