Is there a way to do file/print sharing between two computers not on the same LAN, where the other computer doesn't show up in Network neighborhood, but it's IP address is known, and I have permission from the computer owner to connect?

Thanks,

George Marshall

Depends on the ISP's..

1. FInd the file LMHOSTS.SAM
2. Move it to \windows and rename it to LMHOSTS
3. Edit the file (Excellent examples is within the file)
4. From a DOS prompt Excecute "NBTSTAT -R) (-R not -r)
5. Try to map the printer.
