Remote net not reachable by transport

I am trying to access a share on an NT server on a remote network across
the internet.  I can access the server via ftp etc., and have it configured
in my LMHOSTS file ( I have verified that the name is preloaded with
nbtstat ).  When I try to do a NET USE or NET VIEW against the server
however, I get the message:

System error 1231 has occurred.
The remote network is not reachable by the transport.

I am running NetBIOS over TCP/IP.  I have been able to access this server
across the internet before but am now setting up a new machine on a
different network.

Can you ping the remote machine using IP address. I guess you can't. The problem lies in TCP configuration. Run from command prompt WINIPCFG and check your TCP settings. Verify default gateway, subnet mask and IP address of your client machine. When you get the ping working with IP you can look further for name resolution - in your case LMHOSTS file.

As I mentioned above I can access the server via FTP.  I can alsoping the server and access it as a web server.  I can also accessit using the remote control package Remotely Possible.There are also other servers on my local network that I can access via NET VIEW, NET USE, etc. without any problem.If I access the server via Remotely Possible I can use the NET VIEW, USE, commands on that servers and other servers on that local network as well.  I know that on each network the machines are correctly configured.  The problem is using NetBIOS commands from an machine on one network to a machine on the other.
