I have 2 machines, 1 running Win98 and the other was running OS/2 but
now is Linux, connected thro' a hub which is permanently connected thro'
a router to the Internet. I have static IP addresses for each machine
and the router.
I had no problems seeing either computer when I was using OS/2, but
since changing the OS to Linux things have gone awry. I am running
Samba on the Linux machine and read that I must remove NetBEUI from the
Windows machine, which I did, however, I lost NetBIOS at the same time -
which seems to be the problem.
I can no longer enable NetBIOS from TCP/IP properties it is greyed out.
I have tried to add another protocol, but while NetBEUI is available Net
BIOS is not. I have tried a re-installation of Win98 but no change.
Any ideas from the gurus?
