I can't access share directory when I connected with the other system via Dial-up server (both use win98),what should i do?

I connect with the other system (both win98) via dial-up server,but i can't
access the share directory and can't see the other machine in 'network neighborhood'.
Both machine already install these services in network configuration.
-Client for microsoft network.
-Dial-up Adapter.
-TCP/IP.
-NetBEUI.
-IPX/SPX.
-File & printer sharing.

and i already check all box in all of it's configuration binding.
Both machine connect via modem.
One config to Dial-up server ,another dial
with dial-up network.

In dial-up network property of dial-out machine is set to use TCP/IP ,NetBEUI,IPX/SPX

It's can connect with this configuration but can't see the other
machine of share directory in 'network neithborhood'.
What should i do ?

Thanks for your help!.

How are the two machines physically connected (ie what type of cabling)?

If there are just two machines with network cards and they are peer-to-peer (ie no hub or server), you need to use a twisted pair cable.  Your network card may have an LED on it - if that is not lit, you've probably got the wrong cable.

OK, so the dialup network machine is looking for a shared resource on the dialup server.  What have you set to shared on the server, a single directory or the drive?  Sorry if its an obvious question, but have you set up the Network\Identification name and workgroup fields on the server?  Does the other machine have the same workgroup?

when you are both logged on, try pinging the other machine (ping ip from the dos prompt where ip is the ip address of the other machine). if this works, and the other machiens responds, then check that you are on the same workgroup, and then try and connect to the machine by ip not by name (use //ip instead of //machine_name)

however i don;t think this will work if one of you is using normal dialup netwrok, instead of special server dialin stuff, but i may be getting the wrong end of the stick.

Yes! in the same workgroup,and can ping
to each other. I think TCP/IP work properly.
But i can't see another machine that already shared directory.

I found this problem before.Maybe you can solve this by just select your primary
network logon in your network configuration to 'Client for microsoft networks'.
