Now, can I leave DHCP running on the router so that I still get DNS info and such, but use static IPs on my two Windows boxes? I'm not even sure why static IPs would work if dynamic ones don't.Originally posted by AlecStaar
1.) Try STATIC ASSIGNED IP's on them (ones behind your router/gateway/firewall)
2.) Disable XP firewall or other one... or at least, relax their settings if #1 fails!
okay, I tried static IP and DNS, and whew! the internet was still accessible. In fact, unfortunately, very little at all changed. Now node1 (computer name) can see node2, but cannot access it's shared dir. Error message is "network path not found". Sometimes, I cannot even see the contents of the workgroup (named workgroup, of course).Originally posted by AlecStaar
dotbatman, just try it is all I am saying...
(You can ALWAYS go back to DHCP!)
1.) The server can be MADE to work on a finite address range right, without DHCP, correct?
2.) Use that statically assigned range, & assign IP's in that finite range to your LAN boxes on same subnet that are static from that range.
* Just to see if it cures your ills...
here is a text file containing all of the instructions, including how to get around the BBIwrite problem. this way, you won't have to keep coming back to the news page.Originally posted by DAZZ
