Accessing NT via IPX

We have an NT server that we are able to access via TCP/IP, with the help of a LMHOST file.  The server is on another subnet.  I have setup NWLINK on the server and specified the internal net number and the network number.  Also we could not access the server with automatic frame detection, so we manually put ethernet_ii which is what we use on our backbone.  The clients are win95 with ipx/spx compatible protocol installed.  Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

To me it sounds like you have neglected to install RIP for NWLink IPX/SPX compatible transport.

You have installed and configured two network adapters, and they are able to see each side of teh network.

In the network utility (contro panel) slect the services tab.
Choose add
select RIP for IPX/SPX
Click OK
Have your CDROM handy and install from there.
When you see the prompt to enable netbios broadcast propogation, choose yes.

If you have already done the above make sure you have enabled NetBIOS broadcast propogation. This will forward type 20 braodcasts, which carry the NetBIOS names of your workstations.

After you install the above restart your computer.
Again, open the network config under control panel.
Slect NWLink IPX/SPX compat trans and ensure that that the enable RIP routing check box is checked.

If it was not selected, check it and restart the cmoputer.

**If you are considering moving to TCP/IP let me know and I will send info on NetBIOS over TCP/IP and WINS.

I did what you mentioned and when I restart the server, the RIP for NWLINK could not start because "The parameter is incorrect".

I would be curious how to do NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

btw.  We only have one network adapter in the computer
