Network Issue between WIN XP and WIN 98
Posted on 2004-08-24
I have a 3 computer network
Computer "A" is Windows XP Home Edition
Computer "B" is Windows 98 SE
Computer "C" is Windows 98 SE
We are networked together thru a HP Switch (Hub).
We were all originially networked together through a Win NT machine. I removed Win NT from the Network. I ran the WIN XP Disk on both computers "B" & "C".
All three computers can access DSL, computers "B" and "C" can see and Access Computer "A" (WIN XP) and each other
Computer "A" (WIn XP) can access DSL, and the printer, and can "SEE" Computers "B" & "C", but cannot access them,
the error received is - "computer "B" is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."
File and Printer Sharing are enabled on Computer "A", Netbios is enabled, DNS is enabled with specific address inserted, FIREWALL is NOT enabled
i don't know what else to do to make Computer "A" able to access computers "B" and "C"
I can ping both Computers B & C from computer A
Workgroup name is the same on all three computers
Computer's B & C can PING Computer A
thanks for you help
