Home network problem
Posted on 2003-02-21
I have a home network with a hub and 3 computers connected to it.
Yesterday I noticed that I could type \\EARTH\C$ in the address bar of explorer on my Win98 machine and be able to browse my Win2K machine folders with no authentication, which was a bit scary. The user logged in Win98 machine was not known to Win2K machine. It even wasn’t in the same workgroup and I didn’t type in any passwords to start my Win98 machine.
The important issue was that “netstat” didn’t show any trace of the connection between machines.
Can someone please help what the hell is going on with these Windows machines!!!
