Remote Sharing

I've recently installed Internet Sharing with my copy of Windows 98 SE.  Now I cannot access my shares from another computer on the web. Is there any way to get past this "feature"?  I really hate having to lug disks back and forth to work.

Internet Connection Sharing is a tool that let more than 2 PCs access Internet through 1 connection. If you want to share a folder in your computer and another can access it by Web, you must use a Web Server software, make a web page...
Go to
to find it.

I understand what you mean, but what I want to be able to do is use my shares like another hard-drive.  I'd like to be able to run my programs from home on another computer as well without having to install em again.  That was the whole purpose of this.  Thanks in advance, Flyboy
Flyboy, explain exactly what you were doing before that you are now unable to do. Where are these shares located that you cannot access them?
File and printer sharing can be a security whole on the internet.  You effectively share out your drive to anyone on the internet.  When you setup ICS it generally asks you if this is what you want to do.  It then disables the sharing from the internet.

Double check that under the properties for TCP/IP or Netbeui of your Network card that the file and printer sharing checkbox is selected .
