I have WinXP machine with printer, no admin password.
The machine I'm using for testing is Win98 machine. I don't want
user there to have to use password either to access WinXP machine.
I'm trying to enable File and print sharing using IPX/SPX protocol, for
security reasons between those two.
I followed instructions from
for WinXP i Win98.
And after that I couldn't access WinXP machine. I could see it from Win98,
but can't access it. Then I started experimenting and found some strange
If TCP/IP is checked for File and Print Sharing under "Bindings for
Local Area Connection" on WinXP machine, everything works OK.
After that, I uncheck it, leaving only IPX/SPX for file and print sharing,
and WinXP access is still OK!??
But, after either machine is restarted (while WinXP machine still keeps
only IPX/SPX binding) then no access again...
It seems almost like Win98 needs TCP/IP binding on WinXP machine to connect only for the first time, and after that, I can uncheck TCP/IP
leaving only IPX/SPX sharing without any problems.
How can I have IPX/SPX based sharing without having to enable TCP/IP first?
