Hello, I'm trying to make a connection between winxp pc and win98.

I need the winXP PC to be able to access the win98 PC, the Win98 one has no problems and can access the shared resourced of the winXP one, but the winXP says he has no Access to the win98 shared resources, altough the PC is listed in the Network Sites folder. I have looked for a way to enable the winXp computer to access the win98 one, but there doesn't seem to be any of them in win98, folder and printer sharing is enabled.... any help???

I assume you do not have a firewall (such as ZoneAlarm) installed on the win98 computer?

The resources on the Win98 computer are shared for everyone?

Ooops.... I guess I must have checked that in first time!

Norton Internet Security had the personal firewall activated, it now works after disabling it, but is there any way to protect the computer from internet and allowing local computers to access it???

Yes.  I'm not as familiar with Norton's Internet Security product, but ZoneAlarm for example has an option to include certain computers or network address in a range of trusted computers.  I'm certain Norton must include this option as well...

(And don't feel bad, it was months before I finally sat down and tried to figure out why I couldn't print to the computer in my wife's study...  same reason. ;-)

We have a simmilar problem in a network with both Norton Security and a 3com ADSL firewall protecting a server with medical data... in Norton it was easy to open the ports allowing the XP and win98 machines to comunicate... but I'am not able to open up a 3com firewall allowing the win98 machines to browse network resources on the server?

the config looks something like the figure under:

internet <-- internet firewall --> lan with win98/XP PC's <--- internal firewall --> medical server/also domain ctrl.

Probably some ports that needs to be opened for in the firewall.. but wich one? I managed to open up for the winXP machines to use booth disk shares and login on the server, but not for the 98's???

If the network looks a bit strange is it becasuse the govermenst here in Norway requires a two phase protection against internet where personal medical data is present... and because the customer did'nt afford a new domain server seperating the data and the domain controller :-(
