Just finished networking 2pc.One run with WinXP & another with Win98.Using Network setup wizard in WinXP,everything working fine.But problem is, my PC run with WinXP can 'look' whatever share folder in the PC with Win98, but PC run with Win98 can't 'see' anything in PC run with WinXP.& in Network Neighbourhood icon, i can't see any icon for the pc run with WinXP.Go thru HELP in Win98 regarding networking,& try all the steps but still can't solve this. pls help, thanks.
Whisperer, the file system, NTFS or FAT32 is transparent across the network. There is no problem accessing files from a computer with the OS running an NTFS file system from a computer with a FAT32 file system. whilst Win98 cannot see a ntfs partition directly it can access files on a ntfs drive or partition over a network unless permissions are set up on the XP machine to not allow access.
I used the network setup wizard from winxp to setup on pc run with win98.PC with WinXP is the server while PC with win98 is the client.I tried to disable firewall in PC with winXP but the pc with win98 still can't see anything.I can access internet in the PC run with Win98 after i setup internet sharing in PC run with WinXP.Is it i need to setup/install microsoft network in pc run with Win98?
I run directly the netword setup wizard in the PC with WinXP, after that, i copy in a floppy disk, & run it in Win98. Everything is working fine & same as in WinXP.The only problem i hv now is PC run in Win98 can't 'see' PC run with WinXp in this networking
