xp and 98 not seeing each other
Posted on 2003-03-17
I'm trying to set up a little network at work. My PC is on XP pro, the other is 98 (if i remember right). I can get the 98 pc to see my XP but it can't access anything, it just shows the computer. But i can't even open the network workgroup browser on the XP machine. I've tried it with IP addresses being automatically assigned and static. neither works.
I'm using a hub, but i ge the same problem when i'm trying to do it with just a crossover cable and no hub.
I've done a fair bit of networking(just simple stuff mainly) but i can't figure this out, i know it's going to be something simple, it always is.
Can anyone help?
