Program accessing data on other PC problem
Posted on 2014-02-07
We have a remote office with 2 PC's. We recently changed the IP addresses of those 2 PC's from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.185.x addresses to setup a VPN to the main office. All that seemed to go fine. But on those 2 PC's one of them hosts some programs that is accessed from the other just in that shop. After the change from the host PC we'll call A that program works fine. From the other B when you try and open the program it stalls like it can't connect then errors out. However if on PC B you ping PC A it responds normally then that program will run normally the rest of the day. Every day now when they turn these PC's on its the same thing now that program won't connect on PC B till you run a ping to PC A. Can anyone help me figure out why this is. The users don't want to have to do a ping every day to get the program to work.
The host PC is XP, the connecting one is Win7
I contacted the programs support and they have no idea.
