Windows NT Workstation - Peer-to-Peer

By methos04 ·
I have a small office with 4 systems each utilizing windows nt workstation 4.0. They want to be networked. Can I network them doing peer-to-peer or does workstation 4.0 require server based setup.

NT Workstation does not require a server based setup. To setup NT as a workgroup just go to the HELP menu and under the Index Tab type workgroup. It will give you some info. If needing more info you can e-mail me.

Thank You

As answer#1 said you do not need a server. Just use the same workgroup name on all 4 computers. Also give each computer a uniques name. TCP/IP networking is possible, I do it at home. But NetBEUI would be easier.

It works fine as both replies stated. Just also to remember that if you want to be able to see files/directories on another machien, then they have to be shared on that machine.
If you want selective access, ie. by logon name, then all the logons have to exist on all machines, and to change password for one user it has to be done on all machiens that they access.

You can share printers as well.

It works well - I have 3 NT workstations setup this way, and also a WIn 95 machine on the network at home
