Cisco Connection Probs on Peer-to-peer
Posted on 2000-03-21
Basically, I have a 2 machine peer-to-peer network, all on win95. I just put in a Cisco760 router, and set the PC's to have the router as the default gateway. I have also set DNS settings (to the dns servers of my ISP). The connection works fine, but the problem is, when any of the machines try to browse the network (NOT the internet), the cisco opens up a connection. Also, the cisco is trying to connect, on average, every 15 mins, even when the PC's are not doing anything (there is nothing in the SYS tray trying to go out). Because of this I cant leave it plugged in, otherwise, HELLO phonebill!
Now, the pc's are on 10.0.0.10 + 11 Subnet 255.255.255.0
the cisco is on 10.0.0.1
All I have on the workstations is:
Client for microsoft networks,
Network card (Ge2500II)
File + printer sharing
Why is it bringing up the line? I have tried putting entries in the Hosts file, with no luck. If I remove the DNS settings it does not bring up the line when browsing the network, so it is trying to resolve the computer names thru the DNS, but why? I dont want it to, can I stop it?
Hope you can help.
