Problem connecting XP to Win2k
Posted on 2001-09-08
I am running a home network via the netbeui protocol for
connections to the Win2k machine and tcp/ip out to the
internet via cable modem. Prior to installing Win XP on my notebook it was running Win98se connecting to the Win2k machine with no problems via the netbeui protocol. All shared drives, folders, username, etc. are setup corretly on the Win2k machine. When I installed XP on one of the notebooks I noticed that it did not istall netbeui natively, however I was able to find the Microsoft document and install it on the XP machine. Even though this protocol is enabled it won't see the Win2k box. I tried to use the Network wizard located on the XP CD on my Win2k box but it will not work on a
Win2k platform. It says that the wizard is designed for Win95, 98, ME, and XP. Any ideas on how I can get these 2 machines to communicate and see each other? I tried going to the Win2k machine to look for the XP box and the network is unavailable to view form the Win2k box as well. The XP machine is able to get out and browse the internet through the linksys cable/dsl router as tcp/ip is working properly. HELP!
