I cannot see other subnet

Hello,

I can see all machines on my subnet using network neighborhood but not on other subnets. I can connect to resources though. Is this a router config problem?

Thanks,

Larry

Set up a WINS server on the subnet. That is the best option.

Another would be to have the router forward the netbios traffic:

ip forward-protocol udp 137

ip forward-protocol udp 138

BUT I wouldn't do that (strongly recommended), creates too much traffic and is a waste.

Go with WINS.

Hope it helps.

Re: I cannot see other subnet

I do not have Windows server on that subnet. Only workstations and a Novell 4.11 server. Do I need to use a lmhosts or hosts file?

Thanks,

Larry

Re: I cannot see other subnet

WINS would be much easier to implement and maintain, but if money prevents this LMHOST file would do the trick.

Here is MS' take on it:
