Access DB sharing across T1

Access DB sharing across T1

Access DB sharing across T1

(OP)
I have a client with 2 office locations approx 25 miles apart connected with a T1 for a common app. Location "A" has an Access DB on one computer that I have set up as 'shared' for all pc's at that location to use. This is a peer to peer setup, no server (or SQL) installed. All OS's are win98 or WinME. How /what do I need to do at location "B" to share the DB ?
From location 'B' I can ping the PC with the DB at location "A", but cant see the share. Each location has their own workgroup, and gateway address. Do I need netbuei / ipx protocols loaded at location "B" ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks!


 

RE: Access DB sharing across T1

Netbuei is a non-routable protocol.  So you can't use this.  You can't see the machines accross the wan connection because windows computers prior to 2000 use NETBIOS.  Ideally you need to setup a Wins server.  You can also install IPX/SPX on the remote computers and this should pass netbios if IPX routing is turned on in the router.  Many wan connections are only setup for tcp/ip.  This may be a problem.  If you manage the routers try turning on ipx routing. If you don't setup a wins server on your end. EB
