pop3/smtp comunication from clients on 98 workgroup

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?bGVl?=, Dec 22, 2004.

  1. I have 3 computers all running windows 98 and setup as a windows workgroup
    with manual ip addresses. All three computers can see each other and share
    printers/files and the broadband internet connection.

    Heres the setup:

    Machine One ( this machine connects direct to internet

    Machine Two ( machine can see machine one & three

    Machine Three ( machine can see machine one & two


    Machine two and three cannot see any POP3 or SMTP servers, and when you
    attempt to ping any url (like www.google.com) it returns UNKNOWN HOST even
    though when you type www.google.com into the browser both machine resolve it.

    any help appreciated!

    You didn't mention if you have any firewalls running. Uninstall
    it/them (not just disable) until the problem is resolved.
