NT4/W95/W95 Network

I have 2 W95 machines and 1 NT4 machine on a BNC network. The NT4 machine recently was upgraded from NT3.51. Anyway the 2 W95 machines see each other just fine. I have all hard drives completely opened up for sharing. The NT4 machine is the difficult one. It seems to be able to "see" the other machines but when I click on the computer under Network Neighborhood it thinks for 20 or 30 seconds and then says that can't fine it, actually it says"the network path not found". But the 2 W95 machines "show up", it's just that I can't get to their drives. Again the 2 W95 machines share files just fine. I admit I'm not an expert on all of this. I have every protocol turned on. I have IPX/SPX, NETBEUI and TCP/IP. On the W95 machines I do see something about "Client for Microsoft Networks" under Network->Configurations which I don't have in NT4. Any suggestions???

Try the following:

Get rid of all protocolls you dont use, especially IPX/SPX, run it as a pure TCP/IP or NetBEUI net..

And as for the client part.. The client is an integral part of NT, it doesnt have a config.

Thanks for the try but that didn't do it. I tried just
NETBUI and I tried just TCP/IP but the NT4 machine still
says:

\\Moon is not accessible
The network path not found.

Any other suggestions?

You must look at properties for "Client for microsoft network" and make sure every computer is set up for sharing files (and printers, if you want that). If the NT-computer is set up as a server, the disk share only is visible to administrators if the share name is c$. It is the "$" sign that hides the disk for normal users. I hope this may lead you on to something.
