Network connection to W98
Posted on 2000-04-19
I have just taken delivery of my new Mesh computer and need to connect it to my network of W98 machines.
I can ping the other computers on the network so I know the hardware is connected correctly but I can't access those other computers from my W2000 machine or vice versa.
It is probably to do with my network setup. I have gone into my tcp/ip properties and set up:-
IP Address and subnet mask
DNS primary and secondary servers
so that they are compatible with my other machines. I have not set WINS and it complains if I leave it blank. What is this all about?
I have set the machine name and workgroup up to be the same workgroup as the W98 machines. Question, is this case sensitive? On w2000 it only allows upper case, on W98 it is upper/lower case.
How do I set it up so that each machine sees the other?
