Simple file sharing on a WAN
Posted on 2003-03-05
Granted, I'm a network newbie, so bear with me...
We have a frame relay system. Site A has its router IP address set to 10.10.0.1; Site B is 10.11.0.1; 10.12.0.1; etc. Site A users log on to a Novell Server (10.10.0.2) but Microsoft Networking is still available. Site B is simply a peer-to-peer network using Microsoft Networking. Most machines are Windows 98 SE, but some, like mine, are XP Pro.
Workstations at Site A are configured 10.10.3.x, at Site B 10.11.3.x, etc.
I can ping machines both ways (e.g., I can ping 10.11.3.25 from my workstation, 10.10.3.53, and vice versa), but I cant access the machine in any other way, e.g., to transfer the files.
The machines all have distinct names (e.g., "SiteAUnit101") and all are on the same workgroup, "Workgroup". Each machine has a "shared" folder, with unconditional sharing.
How can I access files in the shared directory at site B from site A?
