Networking XP Pro PC with a 98SE PC

  Scillonia 10:42 27 Aug 2004

Networking XP Pro PC with a 98SE PC and sharing scanner, printer and dial up Internet connection. Both have network cards and I have a patch lead and a crossover patch lead.

Having gained a second PC this is the plan for this weekend. Can anyone help with step guide or advice, potential problems etc

All advice gratefully received.

Thanks interesting reading.
Is there a site that will explain the sharing via TCP/IP rather than netbeui.
May be I should add that the internet connection, scanner and printer are on the PC with XP.

Have managed to get PC1 (XP SP1) to see PC2 (98SE)in network neighbourhood but unable to access it. On PC2 have shared C:\ and shared a newly created folder, but unable to see these. On double clicking PC2 in network neighbourhood on PC1, it says that I should contact Administrator for PC2 as I may not have required access or some such thing.
Can not see PC1 from PC2.
Any suggestions, thanks

That is they same as I have except I use a hub and not a crossover but it should be the same. on the xp pc go to control panel > network connections then click on setup home or small office network and follow instructions you will need a floppy to run on the 98se pc. that is all I did and it worked first time.

What firewalls are you using?

Strawballs, please read previous response, running floppy in PC2 (98SE) fails.

AndySD, On PC1 (XP SP1) Zone Alarm, on PC2 no firewall installed. There isn’t one with 98SE is there.

Thanks for the response
