Hello,

I have been trying to connect two computers to share a printer, folders and a dail-up internet connection using crossover cables.

This is the set up so far:

PC 1: XP Pro SP1 (HOST)
Instaled the following:
-Client for Microsoft Networks
-File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks
-Netbeui Protocol (TCP/IP)
   Properties:
      IP Address: 192.168.0.1
      Subnet:   255.255.255.0

PC 2: Win2K (CLIENT)
Instaled the following:
-Client for Microsoft Networks
-File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks
-Netbeui Protocol (TCP/IP)
   Properties:
      IP Address: 192.168.1.25
      Subnet:   255.255.255.0
      Default Gateway:   192.168.0.1
      DNS:   192.168.0.1

I want to be able to connect the internet using the xp pro. I used the Network setup wizard in xp pro and was able to see the win2k but I couldn't access the pc. I did connect these two computers before but since I have upgraded the Win2k which was 98SE before it has been difficult. Could anyone help me out and let me know what I am doing wrong? Thanks!

None of the suggestions were helpful to me. I couldn't connect the two computers together but I was able to connect my computer that was running win2k while I dual booted into win2k with my computer that was also runnning XP. I think my OS (XP Pro) was not installed properly. I will have to format and reinstall to see if that will work. Thank you all for your efforts. I will reward Yan West since you gave me more links that I found very helpful. Thanks!
