TCP/IP pinging from NT4 network to Win98 network

I have a NT4 Workgroup and a Windows 95 Workgroup, there is a Windows 98 machine with two network cards which acts as a "gateway" between the two networks. From this gateway machine I can ping all machines on both networks, and from either network I can ping both NICs on the gateway machine, but I can't ping any machines on the opposite network.  I tried to enable IP forwarding on the my WIN98 gateway machine but there is no check box as in NT4 networking. What can I do to be enable all machines on both networks to ping each other?

Win98 does not allow IP forwarding. You'll have to make one of the NT machines the IP gateway.

To Hal9000,
In your win98, control panel, network icon, the configuration,
please add (2) the protocols Netbeui and IPS/SPX subsequently.
Add service Files or printer sharing for MS network.
Remember to check the identification - the workgroup name should be input correctly as your networking working workgroup. You can also check by the way the sharing level , too.

This will help you Win98 system to recognise NT/win95 of other PC and share files in counterdirection.

pshl,

NetBEUI is not a routable protocol. Adding it to the Win98 gateway will not help.

I accept your answer, I actually did all those things you suggested previously.   I actually found bartsmit's answers actually the most useful because now that I know win98 doesn't support IP forwarding I know that what I direction I have to apply my efforts toward making these networks talk to each other.

Thank you for your time.
