trying to network win95 w/ winXP
Posted on 2002-04-17
I have two computers which I am trying to network. I have installed a NIC in each and have crossover cable connected. Unfortunately, the information that I have is for networking two win95 or 98 computers, or on the other hand, winxp will help you set up the network, but not if you are running something so archaic as win95 on one of the other computers.
So far the winXP machine shows a network set up with that machine on it, but it doesn't show the win95 machine. The win95 machine doesn't show anything. The winXP machine also has a modem installed, but I don't plan to try to share the internet connection at this time (later). I have installed networking for MS Windows and NetBEUI on the win95 machine. The winXP machine doesn't offer NetBEUI.
What I need to know is a) is it possible to network a win95 PC with a winxp PC, and b) how?
