XP and Win 98 problem
Posted on 2002-03-20
I am trying to network an XP Home edition PC and a Win 98 PC using to PCI NIC's and a cross-over cable.
I have used the XP network setup Wizard but I can't get the two machines to 'talk' properly. I can see the shared folders of the 98 machine when I look from the XP but when I try it the other way around it says "the computer or sharename cannot be found". I don't get why not.
THe XP machine is listed in explorer under network neighbourhood but whenever I click on it I get the error message above.
The XP machine as a static IP of 192.168.0.1 but the 98 machine is having an IP automatically assigned.
If anyone can help that would be great. I'm puzzled.
