I have a problem with Win2000 Professional.
I have a network containing two computers, connected peer-to-peer. On one of them is that Win2000, on the other is Win98.
The Win98 machine was reachable without any problems from the Win2000 one. , I am not able to access the other computer from Win2000's
I don't know where to correct it.

That is my question. Please help me.

Usually for a win98 machine to access an NT or win2k machine you will need to setup an account on the win2k machine that recognises the win98's user.

This is done in user manager as seen from the control panel/ administrative tools or you could try logging in as "guest".

You also have to set shares to whatever resources you have on the win2k machine.

Mqattan,
Win 2000 is very much like win 98 when it comes to
P-P networking.

First you MUST share every thing individually
Drives, folders etc.

second if you are using a win 2000 server in this
network you must set up a DHCP Account

Under DHCP the server will assign the TCP/IP
address for all computers on the network.

when this is done all the computers will recognize each other

Use IPCONFIG to check out the addresses
