WINS workgroup machines invisible in Network Neighborhood
Posted on 1998-01-05
I have a problem with my Network Neighborhood. When I click on it it searches for all the computers currently running in my workgroup, but than shows only some of them, not all. I can't even see myself.
If I go by search/computer I CAN find a specific computer and than explore it normaly (than it appears in Network Neighborhood..) works for my computer too.
Some of the guys on the network told me that they can't see my computer untill the search for it too.
I have seen computers with same problem as mine, and yes, I have LM anounce set to yes.
Windows 95 OSR 2.1 DUN 1.2 Winsock 1.1. I have P166MMX, with 48 RAM and connect to the internet via 33.6 modem.
I use public WINS server at LOCALNET (126.96.36.199) and I have set it as both primary and secondary server (MS suggested solution)..
I use both TCP/IP and NetBEUI protocols to connect and have logon to network option checked..
It looks like this is eather bug in Windows or I didn't set up the networking correctly.
