First of all, What are ALL the protocols being used on and
second, have you tried setting up a PPTP Server with 2 Nic Cards (1 For subnet and other for subnet) and have your clients
use the DUN 1.2b or Windows 98 to tunnel into your domain.
Third, what is the Default protocol for your network. If it is other than
TCP/IP then your Cisco Router my need to set up bridging for the Netbeui or
IPX protocol so that you can see your Internal network.
Fourth, have you tried doing "Start > Find > Computers" and entered the
computer name you wanted to use the resources from?
