second nic, second network for W95 class boxes
Posted on 2004-04-16
XXX is a 2000 box which belongs to a 2000 domain. I installed
a second nic card in this box and gave it an ip address outside the
domain subnet. ICS is OFF.
This second nic goes to an isolated hub that connects to all our W95 boxes.
I placed a share on XXX, with permissions and security wide open.
All the boxes on the "95" net belong to a workgroup. None see the share.
They can ping XXX and ask for a password when you try to connect to XXX.
Is there a way the 2nd nic (in XXX) can act as a workgroup? We need
to keep the 95 boxes off the domain network but have a storage
area common to both. We want a share that can be seen by both.
If this is not possible, then suggestions please. THanks.
