Workgroup/ Not all computers can talk
Posted on 2004-10-06
3 Computers on a workgroup
Computer 1 (W2K Pro Machine)
Computer 2 (Windows 98)
Computer 3 (Windows 98)
When on computer 1, I can see all computers (in netowrk Neighborhood), but can not access shares on computer 3.
When on computer 2, I can see all computers, but can not access shares on computer 1 and 3.
When on computer 3 I can see all computers, but can not access shares on computer 1.
Both computer 3 and 1 can access shares on computer 2.
There are times I can ping computers by IP than other times I can not. I can never ping by name successfully. I tried two different routers. Thought about using a hub b/c internet is not needed.
Protocals that I have tried and are installed are: TCP/IP, NetBeui, Client for MS Network. File and Print Sharing.
Most Important I need Computer 1 and computer 3 to talk and share resourses.
Could anyone please provide a solution. Thanks in advance.
