WinXp Sees Win98 in "View Workgroup Computers" but will not access it
Posted on 2004-09-16
I have a small network using Static IP addresses between them. One computer is running W98 and the other one is running WXP Home. It is necessary to run a Medical Billing Software. I installed a Netgear Router RP614v2 to share internet access between them, installation and configuration was a breeze. Now, I need to connect to my W98 machine from my WXp machine in order to access a data folder. I can see the W98 machine in the "View Workgroup Computers" in Xp, but I can't access the W98 machine from it. The ICF firewall in WXp has been disabled, and the folder in W98 i need to access has been shared granting access to anyone.
What can I do to access the W98 machine from my Xp machine???
