  • How to enable file and print sharing between two different networks

    Hopefully this is the correct place to ask this question. I have several servers connected to either ISP A or ISP B. I'm unable to access the share folders on connection B from Server on connection A. I've enabled Computer Browser service on both computers and SSD Discover. I get the following message when I perform the windows network diagnostics. " the file and printer sharing resource is online but isn't responding to connection attempts." I'm able to browse the folders on servers that are on the same network, but not the ones that are on different ones. Any suggestion ?

    You will need to establish some link between the networks, probably using a router-to-router VPN

    More info needed -- can we have an IPCONFIG/ALL from any computer on each network and also the makes and models of routers involved

        If the "other network" is not attached to a router, how does it connect to the internet - does everything have a public IP?
        (It must have some sort of routing device - a cable modem or something?)

          Your correct. the other network has a cable modem and all the IP's are public
