I have three computers that I would like to be able to communicate between using TCP/IP. I have set the IP address for each using 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.3.
Two computers run Windows 98 (2nd Ed) and the other is running Windows 95.
If I remove NetBeiu from the protocol list, and insure the settings are set correctly (I hope), I can ping each machine to itself, BUT can not ping any other computer else.
First: The IP addressing should work if I can ping myself on each computer, right?
Second: Shouldn't the hardware (NIC cards and Hub) be fine if NetBeiu works fine?
I have a LinkSys hub that I suspect is fine for FileSharing and Printing, but not for TCP/IP. Should FileSharing and Printing be disabled if NetBeiu is Not installed?
Help please, I don't have a clue what to try next.
Can you make anyy recommendations for tests, hardware equipment or configurations, or web sites to visit?
Thanks in advance.
