TCP/IP NETWORK
J1WW Jul-18-01 03:40 AM
I know just about nothing about computers and how they work and could really use some great step by step directions for networking two win98 computers together. I have been told that the best way to do this is to use a ethernet tcp/ip network. I have tryped this. I have put all the same numbers in for the DNS and the Wins. I have also made sure that the name of the group on both computers is WORKGROUP spelled the same with all caps. It just isn't working. Could someone please tell me what i'm doing wrong or even right.

much thanks

Let's start with the network itself. That's where 70% of all network problems are... How are the two computer networked together? Larry

Is the cable connecting them going through a hub or not? If it is not going through a hub, is it a crossover cable? what numbers did you put in for each machines TCP/IP address?

you dont have to install DNS or WINS just U have to install these network componetns :
1.TCP/IP with the correct IP address and subnet mask
2.Client for microsoft network
3.File and priter sharing from Microsoft ( cuz each client will work as a client and server in the same time )
4. the correct configration on the Network adapter
5. make sure taht all teh servuse with the network adapter is Bind correctly .
6 . Cross over cable to connect the Two PC's with each other with out a Hub cuz it's just two Machine
If U like to connect this workgroup to the Internet install ( ICS ) on either PC and configer the Default Gateway on the other PC to the IP address of the client computer that U install the ICS on it .. adi
