PPTP and Network Neighborhood

PPTP and Network Neighborhood

Post by Binesh Bannerje » Tue, 19 Mar 2002 12:46:01

        I've set up PPTP on a box, and all interfaces are using the same
subnet... (Call them say 192.168.203.x). I have samba running on the PPTP
server as well, with
        browse list = True
        wins support = Yes
... But, I still don't see the machines on the vpn boxes. What might I be
doing wrong?
        I ran tethereal on the vpn server, and see broadcast messages being
sent even tho I have ms-wins in my /etc/ppp/options file.
(Which I see also from ethereal being sent to the client)

broadcast messages sent to don't seem to get passed through
to the lan tho... I wonder if that's the problem?

ifconfig -a ppp0 shows:
        ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol  
                  inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
                  UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

                  TX packets:18 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
                  collisions:0 txqueuelen:10

netstat -na | grep 13[789] shows

Any ideas?



1. Network Group slow to appear in Network Neighborhood(NN)

Good Afternoon!!

    I have successfuly setup a Linux Machine as our server. I hope to
Windows NT soon (YYYEEEESSSSS!!!). However, there is one minor item that

is bugging me. When I click on the NN of a Windows 95 client, the
of the group automatically appears. However, when I tried to view all
the network
groups, only the group of the Windows 95 machine appears. It takes a
couple of
minutes before the other group appears. Why is this so? Any help will be
