Win95 OSR2: "Netbios over TCP/IP" greyed out

Win95 OSR2: "Netbios over TCP/IP" greyed out

Post by Steve Cousin » Tue, 11 Jul 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I am trying to connect a Win 95 OSR2 machine to our Samba 2.0.6 server.
The Samba server doesn't show up in the Network Neighborhood (they are
on the same subnet and in the same workgroup) but other Windows machines
were showing up.  Also, the Samba server shows up fine on other
machines. I noticed that Client for Netware was installed and so was the
NetBeui protocol and IPX/SPX.  This machine didn't need Netware so I
deleted everything except Client for Microsoft Networks and TCP/IP.

When I rebooted nothing showed up in the Network Neighborhood.  I added
NetBEUI back in and the computers showed up again but still no Samba
server (Samba doesn't do NetBEUI).

More digging in TCP/IP and I found that the NetBIOS over TCP/IP check
box was both unchecked and greyed out.

So, it looks like NetBIOS is set up to work only with NetBEUI, for some
reason.

Does anyone know why this would be greyed out or how I can re-enable
it?  I have tried deleting TCP/IP altogether, rebooting, installing
TCP/IP, and Client for Microsoft Networking, and rebooting again but
this didn't do the trick.

 Thanks,

 Steve

1. ??? "Unofficial IP Address" --- "Proxy Server" VS "Windows2000Server" ???

Hi all seniors :

I have existing Class C IP address ( ie : 195.170.100.1) used as my gateway
to internet.

But I would like to allocate a new set of IP address (unofficial IP address)
for my 30 PCs in my organizational like this :

IP address 10.1.10.1 - 10.1.10.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-A in ZONE-51
IP address 10.1.20.1 - 10.1.20.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-B in ZONE-51
IP address 10.1.30.1 - 10.1.30.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-C in ZONE-51
IP address 10.2.10.1 - 10.2.10.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-A in ZONE-52
IP address 10.2.20.1 - 10.2.20.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-B in ZONE-52
IP address 10.2.30.1 - 10.2.30.5 : allocate 5 IP address for 5 PCs for
Department-C in ZONE-52

I understand that many organisations have already implemented their own
"unofficial" IP address enterprise-wide,
yet still want Internet Connectivity.  Therefore, rather than having to
re-address each workstation,
an "official" IP address can be implemented on A proxy server.  So then,
workstations can then access the Internet
via the proxy server without having to be reconfigured.

By the way, I using Windows2000Server currently.
Can I do this WITHOUT using Microsoft Proxy Server / other brand Proxy
Server?

Regards.
