Can ping, but not see
Posted on 2002-03-23
Almost have my computer network set up properly.
Here's the scenario:
XP machine (monster) connected to 98 machine (di) through crossover.
XP can ping 98's machine both by IP and by name of machine (di).
XP also sees the share of 98 and can access it through network places.
98 on the other hand can ping the IP of the XP machine, but not the name (monster). It also does not see monster in network neighborhood.
I have netbuei set up on the 98 machine. I have the gateway on the 98 to be set to the ip address of the xp. I manually set the ip addresses are they 169.254.66.1 for the xp and 169.254.66.5 for the 98.
Does anyone have any idea of why i cannot access monster from di?
Thanks in advance,
