Peer to Peer TCP/IP?
Posted on 1998-10-01
I am running Windows 95/Plus, and I want to set up a dial-
up peer to peer network using TCP/IP. The reason I need to use TCP/IP instead of NETBeui or IPX is because I want to use a remote access program that is designed to operate over the internet, but I want to work without having to go through an ISP.
I currently have no other networking except for dial up internet access. The new connection will need to coexist
with my existing internet connection.
Can I set up this type of network with the Microsoft supplied software, or do I need additional software?
What do I do about IP nubers for both machines.... I obviously do not have a DNS server (nor should I need one
with only two known machines-should I?)?
I have been through the exercise of setting up an NetBEUI connection once. Can you highlight the differences to set up this simple two node network?
