I am trying to find a way for me to dial into my win98 machine at home and be able to transfer files. I installed Dialup Server and am able establish a connection to my home machine but am unable to view or transfer files. how would i go about setting up a connection that would allow me to transfer files and view certain folders on my home machine? also is there any way to set up a username and password for this connection?

Did you have shared the files and folders?

start => Settings => Controle panel => Network => Security. Did you have set this to security on sharing.

Did you have also set in configuration that you want to share the files.

i have file and print sharing enabled and have some folders selected as shares. im not sure what you are talking about changing the settings in control panel->network->security. there is no security tab. there is only an access control tab.

Hi,

Are you trying to access your files via Network Neighbourhood?

In many cases you won't be seeing the other workstation.

Try mapping a drive, the moment you are connected.  This you can do in 'explorer', 'tools', 'map network drive'.  type in: \\nameofcomputer\sharedfolder

replace 'nameofcomputer' with the name of the computer you're connected to and replace 'sharedfolder' with the name of the folder you shared.

Hi,

Which protocol are you using?  Install 'ipx/spx compatible protocol' on both machines.  With this protocol you should be able to browse the computers in 'Network neighbourhood'.
Have both workstations the same Workgroup name?

Davy,

Both computers have the same Workgroup name and ipx/spx is installed on both machines. but i still can't get access to the shared folder through Network Neighborhood or by mapping a drive.

Did you have set the username in the user manager:

Name +  password + grand access to dial in..

Dial-up server only requires a password, no username. When you dial in username can be anything but password has to be the one assignes in dial-up server. If you have a connection established then all you need to do is Map the network drive.
Right click Network Neighbourhood and select map network drive. type in path of the computer to map as:
\\computer_name\c. 'c' is the c drive of the computer you are trying to access and this has to be shared:-
 Right click c drive and go to sharing...
Select shared as.
Share name C
Access type Full
For additional security You can specify passwords for read only or full access. Apply and OK.
The C drive should be ready to access through the dial-up server. You can map any drive this way.
Hope this helps.

Javaid, you are new to this site, and with that welcome. However, we do follow a protocol here unlike the newsgroups, in that we do not post answers unless there is a reasonable certainty that your proposed answer will resolve the issue. This avoids the question from being hidden from other techs who may have input as well as be able to provide an exact answer. In addition, questioners have the ability to accept a comment as the answer, therefore there is no need to block the question with an answer that may not resolve the issue.

Here are the guidelines for this site and your cooperation would be appreciated.
