Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 review
hello to all members,
i tried (nTimes)to set up a network @home, first PC run XPpro and 2nd one(quite old) run 95 (i tried with 98se too).
i instaled the hardwares and drivers-no problem-configure the net work protocol TCP/IP even add the NetBeui (because different OS), But the 2 PCs still dont talk to each other. I also tried the XP network set up wizard and follow all the steps, but still not contact between the two. all files and printers are shared.
any suggestions please. thank you in advance.
thank you, i ping 127.0.0.1 (to test my LAN card itself) anf i got a reply. but when i ping 100.0.0.x (x number of my client) to check local set up. i got a (request timed out) on one pc and on the other ( host unreacable).
Local host is working then. What cable are you using? Is the firewall disabled on XP?
the cable is cat5 and firewall is enabled
Are you connecting via a hub or switch? If not, you need to use a crossover cable.
As altecsole has said it HAS to be a X-over cable if your just connecting two machines direct.
Also XP's Network Setup Wizard will not run on Windows 95, so configure its
network settings manually. Go to Control Panel, Network and add
these network components
Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
Remove the NetBeui as you will not need it. Remove these network components if they're present
Client for NetWare networks as you will not need them.
It's easier to install and configure TCP/IP on Windows 95 than
to install NetBEUI on Windows XP. And if you set up XP as an ICS
host, it will automatically configure TCP/IP on Windows 95.
Is there a DHCP server on your network? If so, configure Windows 95 to
obtain an IP address automatically. This would be the case if you
have a broadband router or if you enable Internet Connection Sharing
on Windows XP. (If XP is set up as the host).
If there's no DHCP server, you'll need to configure a static IP
addresses on both computers. Use 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2, with a
subnet mask 255.255.255.0. on each machine.
As said earlier, if you set up Windows XP as an Internet Connection Sharing host,
it will share its Internet connection with 95 and automatically assign TCP/IP properties to it, so if you want to share the net it is the easiest way of doing it. click here for instructions on ICS for XP
If you don't use Internet Connection Sharing, you need to assign
static IP addresses to both computers.
On Windows XP:
1. Open the Network Connections folder.
2. Right click the network connection.
3. Click Properties.
4. Double click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
5. Click "Use the following IP address".
6. Enter IP address 192.168.0.1.
7. Enter subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
1. Go to Control Panel | Network.
2. Double click "TCP/IP->network adapter".
3. Click "Specify an IP address".
4. Enter IP address 192.168.0.2.
5. Enter subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
If you have installed XP on NTFS you will also have issues with file sharing but thats for another day.
