How do I share games on a home network and I am running XP on the host machine and I get asked for a password after I have booted up but before I get to the desktop this has only started happening since I set up the network any ideas on how to prevent this and one more question I can connect to the Internet on the client machine through the host machine which has the modem but how do I disconnect from the Internet from the client machine?
hi jazzypop I have my network set up with XP on the host machine and 98 on the client using a crossover cable. I want to share games over the home network can I share the cd-rom and any disks in XP with the machine running 98
For some games you need 2 disks, especially if you wish to play across the internet. But for playing across a home network you may find that you can play with one disk. I think it is called a spawned version. Try this. Game is installed on both machines. Game is then launched in machine with with disk. Disk is removed and put into machine 2 and laucnhed. Game is then started in both machines.
