Windows XP to 98 via DUN

I cannot log on a Windows XP Pro machine to a Windows 98SE Dial-Up Server using NetBEUI. I get an error message stating that “Windows cannot connect to the network using the username and password you provided”. There are 4 other Windows 98SE machines that connect to the Dial-Up Server. As I understand it I cannot use NetBEUI in Windows XP with a DUN. Can I configure TCP/IP on both machines (XP and 98 with Dial-Up Server) and still allow the other Windows 98 machines to connect via DUN with NetBEUI?  If this can be done how do I configure both machines with TCP/IP? I am new to networking. Thanks for any help.

Just as a thought, have you created a user on the Windows XP machine that is identicle to the user on the Windows 98 machine?

If not then that will probably be your problem, generally you will be logged in as lets say "joe bloggs" with a password or joesblog on the xp machine.  In order for you to connec to the Windows 98 machine then create an identicle user on the windows 98 machine.

Other problems could be you have a firewall installed on the windows 98 machine, disable that.
