Problems networking 8 computers under Windows 95
Posted on 1998-10-21
Hi experts... I'm connecting 8 computers in a LAN. Those computers has ethernet cards and are connected together with a coaxial cable.
The problem is... for example... from 1 computer, I can "see" only 5 computers, from some, I can "see" only 4, and from other, I cannot see any computer. But the strange thing is that I can send a message to an "invisible" computer.
To better show the situation.. take a look at the following example:
4 Computers (A, B, C and D)
Network neighborhood of A shows A, B, C and D.
Network neighborhood of B shows only A, B and C.
Network neighborhood of C shows none.
Network neighborhood of D shows A, B, C and D.
As you see, C doesn't show even itself.
Now.... using WINPOPUP on C, I can send a message to A, B or D. The same with WINPOPUP on other computers... that is, even if the PC doesn't show the other PC on the "network neighborhood", it can send it a message.
Any suggestion about this problem?
I have the same configuration on all computers.... same configuration about file sharing and the workgroup name is the same in all (kamikaze, all lowercase)
Thanks in advance
