2 different subnets visible to explorer
Posted on 1997-08-04
I actually got this to work. I don't want to/didn't use WINS. The goal is to have subnet 192.168.145.# and subnet 192.168.126.# visible to each other. (192.168 was used to protect the innocent :) , but 145 and 126 are accurate) what I did was set my subnet mask to 255.255.0.0 and add each router of each subnet into my list of gateways. My computer is on subnet 192.168.145. This is crude, but I was able to map a drive of a computer on the 192.168.126 subnet. I had to know what it was shared as for this to work. Now, the problem is that I cannot see about 85% of my subnet in Network Neighborhood. Is there a way of cleaning up the subnet mask to only see 192.168.145 and 192.168.126? hence having both full subnets visible in Network Neighborhood? This was very exiciting just to
see actually work. I can get this to work on WinNT 4.0 Workstation as well.
