Hi, i have Win98SE on 3 computers and 2 of them can see all the PCs on the network (more than 100) in Windows Explorer, but the other one only can see some of them (probably only the ones in the same workgroup), i've already installed NetBeui....

Any Ideas ?

Thanx in advance !

What is the used protocol on the network, Netbeui or TCP/IP?

It sounds like an issue with your master browse list.  Can you access the computers if you type in their name on the Run line?  (\\computername).  Do you have WINS setup on your network?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Are you using WINS, DNS or both on your network.  If you have more than 100 PC's on your network I'm assuming you have a server.

I believe you can tell by going to Start, Run, Winipcfg.

Nope.  NetBEUI is a broadcast-based alternative to TCP/IP which doesn't support routing, or port numbers, or lots of other cool features.  In some cases, installing it can make Network Neighborhood appear to work, *masking* underlying problems with TCP/IP configuration.

In that kind of environment, it's amazing that the other PC's can see them at all.

You might have some luck trying the steps listed here...
