Can't access Win98 from XP?
Posted on 2002-07-25
I have a windows 98 machine on our network which I want to access from my XP machine. I have enabled file and print on the 98 machine and shared the drive. I see the share in the XP network neighbourhood but when I try to access it it says to check the access rights and that the network share is no longer available.
I can however pull files off a share my XP machine to the 98 machine without any problems. Also it seems as though I can't put files to any share on any machine (nt4, xp) from the 98 machine. I also have a ftp server set up on the xp machine and I can't send files to that either (using cute ftp). It logs in ok and I get a list of directories but when I try to send a file it just timesout. Both machines are on a simple layer 2 network all on the same ip range, no firewalls or anything in between.
Can anybody help!!!
