TCP/IP on Win9x integration with Unix

By cares76011 ·
They currently have a 16-port hub with 10 or so clients, 3 ISDN routers, and a DSL router connected to it. The network, and the three networks connected through the ISDN share IPs in the public (but not registered) 1.32.44.x/8 range. Since the remote sites share the same IP range as the headquarters site, the ISDN routers are actually configured to bridge the networks. They currently run IPX/SPX, NetBEUI and TCP/IP as the protocol and NFS Maestro and the Microsoft Networking as the clients on all the PC nodes. They are currently running a system called XP on a Unix box (I assume it's some type of loan software) that is using Samba to communicate with the PCs. All PCs are Win9x with a variety of NIC brands. The computers' IPs are determined by a program in XP that tells what IP address to use next during it's client setup proces ( which I have no firsthand knowledge of), they are statically assigned based on the "advice" of the XP system (I suspect it suggests the next highest IPaddress that isn't c

TCP/IP on Win9x integration with Unix

Ok, you can't change your configuration on the XP on the unix boxes. So lets rule out all those machines, they will stay the same, you can change the Windows box's. The routers have their own ip's (hope they are not using the same in each group),so lets look at what we can change. I am assuming that is your question since it was finished, is about the IP address being the same. I would suggest reworking your windows systems (sorry but do the math the hard way, -Note: you can also do this for ALL machines to include the Unix boxes and not allow the XP to assign the boxes). Do your Subneting or suppernet depending on which is needed with the system (I would have to have more detail-exact ip's & Numbers) you should be able to rework this to set the number of machines you need, Plus allow for growth. Hope this is what you needed..
