NT 4.0 & OS/2 warp networking

I'm trying to set up a network between warp and NT 4.0

So far I've got the ethernet cards installed and they do work running os/2 - os/2 peer2peer.

I've changed the NT workstation name to "IBMPEERS" and the NT machine *DOES* see the OS/2 machine.

Both machines complain that "The network path was not found"  (OS/2 SYS0053)


I've got NETBUEI as teh protocol at this point.

Eventually I want to have TCP/IP running as well and set up the OS/2 machine as a proxy server.  At the moment however, all I need is to get netbuei (or some other protocol) working.

I've got it working...

Problem was a mismatch between the user ID in OS/2 and NT.

I had the user ID assigned ... but I had logged in uder a different user ID under OS/2 and thus even though the the two machines could see each other, they wouldn't share anything.

I sure wish stuff was documented!  A one page cheat sheet woiuld have saved me a day!

I think you might also reconsider the name of your NT Workstation.  IBMPEERS is a default used in Warp 4.  I use NT and Warp extensively in our network.  The normal procedure for using resources is as you said:  Always make sure you have logged on as the same userID/Password that has the permissions on the other machine that you would like to utilize.  If your local logon on the Warp 4 machine matches the Domain Userid on the NT box, your in, and vice-versa :-)

KC,

Thanks for your answer.. you are correct - my problem was that I had logged in under a "manager" user ID on the NT box and set everything up, then I logged in under my "user" id on the NT machine, and of course NT wouldn't find anything.  When I re-setup the system under my "user" id it worked.

I've changed the domain names and all seems to be working well.

My next step is to set up TCP/IP.  So far I have netbuei running but I need to get a proxy server in the OS/2 machine with NT served from it.

I have DEVCON 12 & DEVCON 13 and I note there is a proxy server in the package.  Have you ever used it - or any other for that matter.

What I want is complete internet access (FTP, TELNET, BROWSING, etc.) from (1st) the OS/2 machine.  The next step after that is to do the same under LINUX.

I'm setting up a www server and the folks I've talked to that *know* tell me that LINUX is the way to go.

Personally, I just don't trust NT to be safe!  Nevertheless, since I haven't talked to anyone who has set up an NT server, perhaps it is fine (hack proof that is...)

What is your experiance with OS/2, NT, etc. in this area?

Thanks
