IP Routing
David Campbell Sep-23-01 00:27 AM
I have a small e-smith network (server & gateway) setup running netgear nic's and a netgear 4 port hub.

The e-smith server has 2 nics - 1 connected to my cable modem and the other to my hub. I can access all machines via their nic's in both directions bar 1, my main desktop. Prior to getting my cable modem I had a dial up connection via a conventional US Robotics modem on my main desktop machine.

The only thing I can find (I don,t know anything about networking in general) is that when I run winipcfg on my main desktop it shows that "IP Routing" is enabled whereas it is not on any of my other pc's. Can you please tell me how to disable "IP Routing" on my main desktop or if there is anything else I could try.

My e-smith server is set as browse master, my main desk-top has browse master disabled, all other settings are the same for all other machines.

When I go into "my network" on the main desktop machine I get the message "unable to browse the network"

The e-smith system is excellent in all respects and it's virtually fool proof to set up, except for me it seems.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

regards

David Campbell

Hi Larry, I use Win Me on all machines. I have now resolved the problem, it turned out to be software rather than hardware related.

I use Zone Alarm on the main desktop and simply had to enable the option "This computer is a client of an ICS gateway running ZA" in the advanced security settings page. Once re-booted everything was fine.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my "problem" I appreciate your help.

regards

David Campbell
