WAN CONECTIONS (WINS, LMHOST ??)
Posted on 1998-09-08
Running two NT4 servers at 2 sites. We are trying to connect the two networks so that the machines on either network can access each other. We have succeded in establishing a link between the two sites and are able to ping across the networks, but we are unable to see any machines in the network neighbourhood.
I am aware that there is some requiment to configure an LMHOST file but have no idea how this integrates with a WINS server. Is it not possible to run a systme that is similair to good old dial up networking ?
Although I have an understanding of certain networking principles WINS LMHOST and all that sort of stuff is new to me. So I need a really basic guide as to the process of setting up a WAN.
Lookforward to your ideas !
