I have a network of three PC's - one of each of Win98, XP and Vista... All connect fine via my Gigabit router (its very good!!) EXCEPT that the Win98 cannot access the Vista PC (vice versa is OK). I can see the 'My Docs' file on the Vista from the Win98 but it freezes when I click on it... AND YET the XP connects OK with the Vista. Any ideas??? Is it a protocol issue or something??? I just cannot think what it is!!!
Hi I have the same prob. Have pinged both pc's from CMD and run ipconfig but cant see eather pc,can get internet on the vista pc but not win98. Both networked through a 3com ps40 12 way hub. Any help gratly receved MTIA
I have now got all three of my computers running on LM Compatibility Mode 1... the XP to Win98 works both ways, XP-Vista is fine, but the Vista to Win98 only one way...everything freezes on the Win98 when I try and get through to the Vista PC
I've checked the Vista firewall, set up firewall rules which look OK to me, set LM modes to 1, authentication is set on the vista to none, I've set up a Guest account and allowed all users.... and I don't know what else to do...
