If You Ever Feel Like Experimenting

  1. Setup 2 computers, a client and a server. Use NBT and TCP/IP, initially, on both.
  2. Get file sharing working (opening files from the client) using NBT only, no NetBEUI.
  3. Install Zone Alarm on the server, and configure it so the client can access shared files on the server, and can ping the server.
  4. Engage the ZA lock, so the client can NOT access files on the server, nor ping the server.
  5. Unbind File Sharing from NBT on the server, and install NetBEUI. Leave TCP/IP working, but NBT disabled.
  6. See if the client can ping the server.
  7. See if the client can access files on the server.
  8. Disengage the ZA lock on the server.
  9. See if the client can ping the server.
  10. Change the ip address of the server to a different subnet.
  11. See if the client can ping the server.
  12. See if the client can access files on the server.
