Hello everybody,

I got a win98se system connected to a Win2000 system through a cross-cable.
Both machines use the same user, have netbui, tcp, ipX/spx protocols installed and both are set to get an ip automatically. And they are both in the same workgroup.
The win98 system can see the win2000 but on the 2000 machine the 98system is invisible.
Help?

When you set up internet connection sharing on the 2000 system it asks you to make a client disk.  Did you create on and install it on the Win98 machine.

This is a normal activity. You have to Click on FILE AND PRINTER SHARING on Win98 machine. Moreover, set Two different IPs (192.168.0.1  and 192.168.0.2) for two different machines. These are private IPs. you can find the Win 2000 machine by inputing its name on START-SEARCH and write the name of the PC youre trying to connect.

sometimes there's a delay with seeing the Win98 machine on a network, so maybe turn on Lanman Announce in File and Printer Sharing, Logon and Restore Network Connections (not QUick Logon) in Client for Microsoft Networks, and something else I forget.  Or try logging out and logging in or something I've had a problem with a delay but the machine eventually shows up if FIle Sharing is on.
