Networking XP to 95
Posted on 2003-10-29
Hello, Ihave linked to PC's together, both have a network ethernet card. One is running windows XP and the other Windows 95. I have attempted to set them up. I've givent them the same work group name and different computer names. I have also set up the sharing of resources.
The windows 95 machine has access in network neighbourhood to all of the files on the XP machine and shows the resourses it is sharing on the network.
The windows XP machine is only showing the files that it is sharing on the network. It isn't showing any files or printers on the Windows 95 machine.
Also I am struggling to set up internet connection sharing. I am using AOL UK DSL (PPoA) on the XP machine. I have know idea what settings I need to use or how to discover the IP addresses it asks for or whether or not I need a proxy server.
Thanks in anticipation, Acsell
