Windowns NT double networking
Yair_Churi Jun-11-01 06:06 PM
Please help me understand the following issue:
My Windows NT 4.0 is connected to a domain in my office LAN. With a second networking card I am trying to connect another machine that is not on the network. I would like to create a privet workgroup between the NT and this other computer. I would like ti creat my own IP addresses for that purpose (is peer to peer the right term to use for this?)
Can the NT machine support a new computer that is not part of the domain? Do I need to define a new domain/workgroup for the connection with my second computer? How do I configure the NT?

Thank you very much for any comment on this issue.

You can have a workgroup-only connection with the other computer, but the workgroup name on the NT computer must be the same as the domain name. That means the other computer will be a member of the same workgroup as those that login into the domain. Are you going to connect to both the work network and this other computer at the same time?

Thanks for this clarification. Yes, it is going to be connected at the same time. Does that make a difference? How do I configure it?
Thank you.
