TCP/IP- Win98 client can authenticate to

By johnm ·
*** SENERIO ******
10 Clients running on NetBEUI network. File and Print sharing work just great.
Users are authenticated by NT-Server4.0(PDC).

Added TCP/IP to the existing NetBEUI Network.
-Clients have valid static IP addresses (Block of 12 addresses.)
-Each Win95/98 Clients TCP/IP settings are identical regarding; Subnet Mask(255.255.0.0), Default Gateway, WINs(none), & DNS configuration.
-DNS - Host Name: is the 'computername' of the client. Domain Name: is 'blank'.
-DNS -One DNS Server is listed.
-DNS is enabled.

(Also, connected a router to the the Hub. Set as the Default Gateway in the IP Client settings)

*** PROBLEM ****

** Win95 clients works great. They can log into the network. Clients can browselocal servers & browse Internet.
** Win98 client don't work!! With DNS enabled, clients are denied access to log in. If I disable DNS, we can log in, but can't browse the WEB.

I thought of implimenting a DHCP Server. Then the clients would get authenticated first

I think your question got cut off, but you were sort of going in the right direction. Your problem is that your Win98 computer is following the "standard" Microsoft name resolution scheme, which is DNS first, and probably timing out before it can find your local PDC. I would remove NetBEUI completely from your network; you don't need it if you're using TCP/IP. You don't need DHCP since you are using static IPs, but what you need locally is either WINS or a HOSTS file on each workstation. Setup WINS on your server and this should take care of the problems. If your DNS server is local, you can set DNS to use WINS for NetBIOS name resolution so that local name resolution uses WINS and Internet name resolution goes to DNS. If the DNS server is at your ISP, you don't need to worry about this. Hope this helps!

I concur with previous answer. I have also had some similiar issues with leaving the domain name blank on the DNS tab. I am assuming that the DNS server listed is in your local domain.
