NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled
Posted on 2003-02-21
I have created a dial-up connection to my company. Once I have successfully dialed in, I go to Pcanywhere to connect to my pc. I am able to connect to my pc via my IP address from PCanywhere, but I cannot use my pc name. I try to ping my pc name but I get an error. I can ping my ip address of the computer. When I do an ipconfig a I see that NetBios over TCP/IP is disabled.
I think this may be the problem.
How do I enabled it? I right-click the dial-up connection, go to networking, click on TCP/IP, properties, advanced, WINS, but I do not see the "NetBios setting" options so I can enable NetBios over TCP/IP.
