Heres a tricky one:
The server is all set up and it works just fine. I just found out that I’m not broadcasting to the whole building because there are 5 different subnets, and apparently i can only see and share to my subnet. I talked with the network engineer and this was what he said:
Our Resnet network consists of the following subnets.
ID Subnet IP Address Mask Router
71 resnet-wads-g1 18.104.22.168 23 M160
72 resnet-wads-2 22.214.171.124 23 M160
73 resnet-wads-3 126.96.36.199 23 M160
74 resnet-wads-4 188.8.131.52 23 M160
75 resnet-wads-5 184.108.40.206 23 M160
76 resnet-wmcnair 220.127.116.11 23 M160
77 resnet-emcnair 18.104.22.168 22 M160
78 resnet-dhh 22.214.171.124 22 M160
79 resnet-heights 126.96.36.199 22 M160
A ‘broadcast’ or SMB share should work only within the local subnet.
Generally multicast will work across any of these subnets. IF the
application sets the TTL short, or a group for local it may not traverse
the network beyond a local subnet.
Can I somehow share to the whole building even though we’re all on different subnets?
