network share issues

have a t1 line coming into a an unregistered sonic wall (basically a router now??).  have three pcs coming out of that sonic wall.

two were given a gateway of 10.0.100.235 and ips of 10.0.100.100 and 10.0.100.101.  
one was given a gateway of 10.0.1.1 with an ip of 10.0.1.5

what do I need to do to let all three share a printer and a folder?  

thank you :-)

Why was the third pcs (10.0.1.x) not in the same segment of ip as the other two, (10.0.100.x).

The two that are in the same segment will share resources easily but with on the other segment you will need to modify the route path, but if the third pc can be in the same subnet as the other two, it will makes things much more easier.

Also what version of Windows are you running? Whatever version of Windows you are using you will need to Enable Simple File Sharing.

the 10.0.100 section is for a point of sale system they want separate.  if the other pc has to stay 10.0.1 can the sharing still be accomplished?  the 10.0.100's are windows 7 and the 10.0.1 is windows xp.  thanks for helping :-)

As long as the PCs use the same box as the gateway (the SonicWall) it doesn't matter what subnet they're on - they will all be able to use resources as long as the firewalls are allowing.

You'll need to configure some permissions on the resources you want to share, and if all the PCs are in a workgroup it's usually an idea to configure the same usernames and password on all of them to enable each user to authenticate to the other PCs.  You don't all have to use the same username/password, just make sure there's the same user accounts configured on all PCs.

Craigbeck from what the information given the two segments are using different gateway see below

two were given a gateway of 10.0.100.235 and ips of 10.0.100.100 and 10.0.100.101.  
one was given a gateway of 10.0.1.1 with an ip of 10.0.1.5


Yes Stewart, you can configure/move the two pcs to 10.0.1.x segment, but do you know why this was configured in this way before?

I think I may be in over my head.  craigbeck you seem to get it but im not sure I know where to begin :-(.  I have a printer connected to the pc on 10.0.1.5 that id like to use with the 10.0.100.101 pc but when im on the 101 and search for network printers, nothing is found :-(

Craig BeckCommented:
Don't search for it - it's hit-and-miss whether you see it or not.

In the Start menu's search bar (or Windows Explorer address bar) just enter the following:

\\10.0.1.5

This should open an explorer window which shows the shares on the remote PC, or it will pop-up a login box (if you're not logged in using the same account as the other PC).

@giveandtake638 - those two IP addresses will be the interfaces on the SonicWall (one for each subnet).

typed in \\10.0.1.5 on pc 10.0.100.101 and nothing came up :-(

Can you ping 10.0.1.5 from 10.0.100.101?

Have you checked that the firewalls on each PC are allowing file-sharing?

StewartGilliganAuthor Commented:
10.0.1.5 times out with ping :-(  
yes file and print sharing is checked on both
would sonic wall need some rule for this to work?

Emmanuel AdebayoGlobal Windows Infrastructure Engineer - ConsultantCommented:
I'm not a networking guru but with the little I know these PCs are not on the same segment i.e 10.0.1.5 is different from 10.0.100.101, so the route must be modify on either 10.0.1.5 or 10.0.100.105

on the browser on 10.0.100.101, try to open \\10.0.100.101\c$, let see the result.

Craig BeckCommented:
@giveandtake638 - if the two segments use the same router as their default gateway there is NO routes that need to be modified.  The fact that their gateway addresses are different is completely irrelevant if those two gateway addresses are the SonicWall.

@StewartGilligan - If the firewall is still enabled on the SonicWall you will need to create rules to allow the two subnets to talk.

Thanks  craigbeck, I leave it to you then. Cheers.

StewartGilliganAuthor Commented:
ok.  what would those rules be?  thanks

StewartGilliganAuthor Commented:
@giveandtake638 - that command on 101 (\\10.0.100.101\c$) opens the c drive folder on 101.  thanks

Craig BeckCommented:
At a minimum you'd need to allow ports 135-139 and 445 between the two subnets.
