Crossover Cable with NETBEUI and with TCP/IP
Posted on 2004-03-21
Is it possible for a crossover cable connecting 2 Windows98 SE computers to work correctly with NETBEUI and be faulty for connecting with TCP/IP? With NETBEUI as the protocol everything works OK and with no problem setting it up. With TCP/IP each machine sees itself as on the workgroup but does not see the other machine in Network Neighbourhood. Each machind can ping itself, but not the other machine. Neither machine has any Internet connection, ICS is not activated on ether machine.
