I had posted a problem stating that my ACER 233 was dropping
network connections on a peer-to-peer network with on other
win98 and 2 win95 machines. A local tech advised that I use
tcp/ip on the machine. I tried this with no success but when
I switched back to ipx and netbeui (I loaded both) the previous problem disappeared. The pc can now access all machines on the net but to other machine can access, or see,
it. The strangest thing is that when I go into 'passwords'
to give other machines remote administrative authority, it tells me that I cannot do this because I do not have the
authority. This is a single user machine with one userid
defined for networking only. I am now getting the feeling
that there is an invisible user out there that has the sole
authority over this machine. I am beginning to suspect that
my original problem was that my efforts to grant share
access to the machine were being ignored because I am not
that invisible authorized person. Any ideas on what ails
this box before I throw it from a tall building?
