Win98SE + crossover cable + WinXP Home Not working Why?
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have a Win98SE + WinXP Home Edition (latest service pack 2) I can see the both computers in Network Neighbour hood, but can only access the Win98SE computer through WinXP Home. I cannot connect to the WinXP Home computer through the Win98SE computer. I have spent 2 days going through all these replies relating to this problem on this site, i have done everything possible that has been suggested.
Workgroup = Workgroup
User name = Julie
password - julie
Client = Client for Microsoft
File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks
CardBus 10/100Mbps Ethernet Card
Protocols = NetBEUI + TCP/IP, the TCP/IP has in it an ip address of 192.168.0.10 subnetmask 255.255.255.0, The DNS, gateway, WINS are empty. NetBIOS has enabled 'I want to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP. Bindings has ticked, Client for Microsoft Networks and File Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks.
I have shared the C drive on the Win98SE computer.
I have gone into safe mode and made sure that the c: drive has got Everybody enabled also the specific user name (Julie) enabled with everyone and Julie having Full Control. I have installed via the XP Home CD the NetBUIE and placed them into the appropriate directories on the WinXP Home comptuer.
I have TCP/IP installed with an IP addres of 192.168.0.10 subnet 255.255.255.0. have gone to the advanced properties and ensure the 'Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP has been selected. I have even tried turning on the guest acount. I have run out of ideas. I have to have this computer back to the client today and i cannot understand what i am missing. Please Help. Marissa
