I have an ADSL router\modem connecting a Win98 Desktop to a WinXP laptop. Both share my ADSL internet connection.
My intention is to monitor the 98 machine from the XP machine using PCanywhere 11. This is so that I can monitor the activity of my kids remotely when on the internet.
I have disabled Zone alarm, and disconnected the ADSL line temporarily while I have no firewall.
The two machines are in the same workgroup, with shared folders. I can see the resources on the other machine from both ends.
When I run PCanywhere on the XP machine, from the quick deploy and connect icon, I can see the 98 machine in the list. I double click the icon in pcanywhere to connect to it. It prompts with a box domain\username and password.
What do I fill in here? I've tried all combinations of machine names and usernames with passwords, and every time is says no network available, yet it lists the machine!
I even set up a user account on both machines with the same user password combination.
Just seems stupid that I can list the machine in PCA, share resources with it in Network Neighbourhood, but not establish a connection in PCA.
Am I overlooking something fundamental?
Thanks in advance.
