I just installed a new connection (satellite) to replace my T1. With the prior setup, I had a T1 coming into a csu/dsu, then to a router with a fixed IP, and into a hub. All the computers in the network also had fixed IPs. OS ranged from NT 4.0, 98, and 2000. All machines in the system could see each other in the Network Neighborhood.
The new setup has the satellite coming into a Win 2000 machine, then a NIC from the same machine connects to a hub where all the other machines are connected. IPs are assigned dynamically, and the 2000 machine (calling it the satellite server) runs Internet Connection sharing.
All machines on the network (98 and 2000 machines) can connect to the Internet. The problem is, I have a laserjet connected to the satellite server 2000 machine. Other 2000 machines on the network can see this printer, but none of the 98 machines can see it. In addition, all the 98 machines can see each other, and all the 2000 machines can see each other, but no cross-OS views of the machines.
All machines have the same workgroup and the same settings to connect to the Internet.
So, I’ve tried everything I can think of, but I haven’t found a solution. Can anyone help?
