HI,

Here is the situation. I manage a small network in a office where there is 2 workgroup ( deschenes and boivin). The 2 workgroup share the same router and the same sdsl modem for internet high speed.

When i go the the network  i see the 2 workgroup and i do no want to see the both.

The question is: How to hide a workgroup in a computer. You see,  the computer in the workgroup «boivin» do not have to go and see the workgroup «deschesne)

The solution is pretty difficult for me...

Regards,

Marcheblanc

    There isn't much you can do as long as the system are on the same subnet. If it is absolutely neccesary to hide each set of machines, than I would do one of the following:

    1. Check the router to see if it can support two subnets and then setup each network with its own seperate IP block.

    2. Buy a second router so each of the networks is totally isolated.

    If your connection has more than one IP, then you would go from the DSL modem into a small switch or hub, and then from the switch into the two routers. If you cannot get two IPs from your DSL provider, than it is a litte more complex as you would go from the DSL modem into a single router, than from the first router into the two routers for the seperate networks. Its not pretty, but it can work.

    You can do it with two IF you have multiple IP addresses available from your ISP. If you only get one usable IP address than you would need 3.
