I have a linux9.0 PC with a modem connected to a LAN of two PCs. In another
office, I have a linux6.2 PC with a modem connected to a LAN of two PCs. I
connect Linux_PC9.0 to LinuxPC6.2 .
If I am at PC1, I can telnet into Linux6.2. If I use Windows Explorer, I
can view the files on Linux6.2. If I mount the shares on PC3 and PC4 to say
/mnt/PC3 and mnt/PC4, I can access them using Windows Explorer by typing in
the address \\Linux6.2, then I scroll to /mnt then to PC3 and then into any
file I want.
How can I access PC3 or PC4 from PC1 directly, e.g. \\PC3 in address bar.
and for that matter, how would I access PC3 from PC1 if I were to use
netmeeting and other apps?
PC1,2,3,4 and windows PCs and the rest Linux.
Names are fictitious.
Extra info. I can ping 192.168.0.128 from 192.168.0.2 but cannot ping
192.168.0.129 or ..130. By the way, when PC Linux 9.0 dials PC Linux 6.2,
the PC Linux 9.0 ends up being 192.168.1.2 (because this is the ip I used in
ppp options file.
