I have 3 computers hooked together via generic network cards using BNC connectors, terminators, no hub. Computer A is setup to dial out to my ISP via TCP/IP - dialup adapter. TCP/IP is also the default protocol for my LAN, using TCP/IP - network card. My local IP: 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.2 and 192.168.0.3 for the other 2 cpu's). Subnet mask 255.255.255.0 for all 3. (I want to use TCP/IP for a specific reason). My problem: Computer A sees computers B and C and can access all their files. Computers B & C can't see or find computer A (can't map to it either). When I dial into my ISP with cpu A, cpu's B & C can both use the internet connection for browsing, etc. Please help.
1) All 3 cpu's have TCP/IP as the default protocol
2) All have same subnet mask with IP's as noted above
3) All have client for MS network bound
4) All have print and file sharing on and bound
5) All have file sharing turned on through explorer
6) All have share-level access control checked
7) They have the same workgroup name
8) No conflicts in network cards with other devices
9) I know it doesn't matter if the different cpu's are win98 or win95, cause I have another network connecting a win98 with 32 bit file system with a win95 with 16 bit file system, and it works fine.
