I have a home network wich includes three pc's. I have a peer to peer network. Two of my machines are running windows 98 second edition and the third machine I have windows 2000, professional edition.

On the Windows nt 2000 machine I have a Jazz drive that I want to share out to the other two machines. I created the share on this machine but when I try to access it from the other two machines I am prompted for a password to access the windows nt machine e.g. \\BOB-V8JUH7E3TCZ\IPC$.

I have shared out the printer on the windows 98 machine which I can access from all machines. Is their something incompatable between the operating systems?

Thank you

What is the "network name" of the jazz drive resource? If it's the default name that Windows 2000 has given to it, please try change it (put jazz, for example), it seems like you are trying to access an administrative resource

Windows 2000 has much tighter security than Windows 98--you *always* need a password to access shared resources on a 2000 machine, unless you specifically say otherwise. What share permissions have you given for the Jazz drive?

Thank you. I changed the access permissions to my jazz drive and now I can access it across my network.
