we have a 2 pc lan and this is the problem, they share an internet connection fine, they see themselves in network neighbourhood, but not each other.
the machines are set up thus: 1x pc running win98se the other running dual boot 98se and xp. both pc's are set on automatic ip addressing. both pcs' see themselves in network neighbourhood, and we share the internet over a programme called allaboard. since the internet share is fine, i cannot see why the pc's cannot see each other. file and print sharing is enabled, and both pc's are firewalled by zonealarm pro. both firewalls have the respective ip addreses set as trusted.
i can only imagine it has something to do with the way allaboard works, as it sets up a virtual lan adress, could that be it? anyway, as you can imagine im a rank beginner with networking so all help gratefully recieved!
