Hi
I need help. I hink my problem maybe a lack of knowledge of WinNT
workstation.
i have a home network of Win98/XP/2000. Everything worked fine until i added
a WinNT workstation. I can see the other computers on the WinNt workstation
in network neighborhood. But i cannot see the WinNT on the WinNT computer
nor on any of the other computers. Furthurmore accessing the network on the
NT workstation is painfully slow. I also cannot get on the internet with the
NT machine, but gets it on all other machines (I am using a cable modem to
access the internet). I also note when i start WinNT machine, I get a
message that a service fail to start.
I did a ipconfig and get the following:

Host name.................................Ntstation
DNS server ...............................(the correct DNS)
Node Type.................................broadcast
NetBios scope ID........
IP routing enabled........................no
Wins Proxy enabled.....................no
NetBios resolution uses DNS.......no
Physical address..........................(my net card address)
DHCP enabled............................yes
IP address..................................(the correct IP address)
Subnet mask..............................255.255.255.0
default gateway........................(correct default gateway)
DHCP server..........................(correct DHCP)

Can someone tell me what may be the problem. All heph appreciated

Regards

Mixed problems :

1) Enable the Guest account in the user manager so that other windows boxes
can access your shares. Don't forget to share ! :)
2) Please go to start>run> type "eventvwr" and in the system log you should
find which device fails to start every time you boot.
3) try to ping known adress like www.google.com and tell us the reply :
"adress not found" or "unreachable" ?

The failed service is probably the NetLogon service - if the OP's machine is
like mine, that's what it is. It claims it doesn't need it, so it shuts it
down, then classes that as a fail. Not the most helpful thing it could do

Hi
thanks for your response. I was able to ping google and other network
successfully. Not sure what did it. Maybe the extra memory i addeded (i was
running only 64mb) or enabling guest account . I am now able to use the NT
box to access the internet. I am still not seeing the NT box on the
computers on the LAN. I am pretty sure this may be because i am not sharing
anything on the NT box. I am really new to NT, so i guess the question i
have is how do i share a folder in NT. If this was Win200 or XP i would just
right click and click on sharing and security. I cannot find this option on
the NT folders. BTW I am still getting that message on startup that some
service fail to start. I did the "eventvwr" below and it seems they were all
related to NetLogon. I am not very concerned with that at this time as it
does not seem to be affecting my immidiate problem.
