Win98 Direct Cable Connection . Only one way share...
Posted on 2003-11-05
Lo there! :)
I have two machines with fresh builds of Win98 from the same source. I installed Direct Cable Sharing identically on both. The problem is that I can only share in one direction.
More specifically, one of the machines cannot see anything in the Network Neighbourhood (not even itself), and refuses to find the host machine when I run the DCC wizard.
Before this, I had to sort out problems with missing files; dfs.vxd, vredir.vxd and msnp32.dll but I did the same fix on both machines, again using the same sources.
I've tried from scratch twice now and keep hitting this problem. The only thing I can think of is that there might be other missing or corrupted files which windows won't warn me about?
Any ideas would be gratefully recieved!
