Win 98 to Win 95 Networking
Posted on 1998-08-03
I have just loaded win 98 on my Think Pad (Upgrade). Previously on my home LAN using win 95,it loaded fine and was recognized on the LAN. Now with win 98, the other computers on win 95 will NOT recognize the ThinkPad and vice versa. The workgroup(s) are identical, and using "find Computer" it does locate the client/server in question, but will NOT make it part of the workgroup. A message says access is not available. I have followed the "HELP" and gone through a complete reloading of the Network Settings on the ThinkPad but to no avail. All passwords and sharing are set up properly. The Win98 system seems to have a bug but I cannot fathom why or how I can overcome it.
