What is need to see Nt servers and works

By sfischbeck ·
I have multiple lan segments with Novell and Nt 4.0 servers on them. The Novell servers have no problem seeing each other accross the routers, but the NT 4.0 servers cannot see each other accross the routers. I can ping the individual machines and can find them by ip address, but I cannot locate the domains. I have two domains on one lan segment which can see each other fine. Can anyone tell me what protocols need to be passed by the router besides tcp/ip?

I believe ports 138 & 139 should be open also, I think cisco's iphelper does all this

Hi, do you have wins set up for your nt servers? since you can ping the machines by ip address but not by netbios name, I think this is your problem. Without wins, the machines broadcast to find each other and broadcasts will not, in most cases, cross a router. You can also set up lmhost files, which is the same thing, but wins is the easier of the two (gui based and centralized). Hope this helps.

It could be that your cmos battery needs replacement.
Would be normal the system ask you to confirm the changes, if you battery died and everytime you turn your computer off, the date and time changes.

Good luck!

the first thing i would check would be your gateway. make sure they are actually opinting to an intelligent device. check your trusts (i know, simple, but check them anyway or you might be real upset later), and make sure (assumming you use cisco routers) that you dont have any necessary ports closed blocking traffic.

We had this problem resolved for us by having our cisco router bridge our two subnets. (Note we have only the one domain but two distinct LAN segments)
