    Hi all.

    I have the following setup. Computer A(Windows XP) link via normal windows workgroup to Computer B(Windows Server 2003). B is linked to Computer C on a separate network segment (different IP range). A shared drive on C is mapped to the J drive on B. A needs full access to this mapped drive. The only physical link between the two network segments is B. Any suggestions???

    Thanks

    Is there some reason that the contents of that drive on computer C could not live on a share on the server?

    Computer C is the server. B is only a workstation with limited resources. I know it has Server 2003 installed on it, and there are reason for this, but it is not used as a server in the same way as C. There must be a way to get A to access the share on C. Even if it means "faking" it in some way.

    I don't think it is possible to do what you wish. You could put a router between the two subnets and allow only traffic from those two machines to go through it. This would essentially put A on both subnets.

    If you have the two subnets physically wired together and only have them separated by IP subnets, you can bind the NIC on machine A to both subnets at the same time. (this would put A in both networks and would not maintain separation)

    If you want to try the second option, post back and I can give you instructions on how to do it. (it is a simple setting within windows, no registry hacking or anything fancy)
