Hi,
   I am trying to network two computers directly i.e, without a hub,single cable with connectors going to each side. Well, the network cards are working well in each computer and I even configured the network details(One is windows 98 and other is win2000) but I guess I didnt get it right so its not working. In fact I tried with both windows 98(one has 98 as well as 2000). So could anyone let me know how I should go about ....I tried to search for it but wasnt that helpful. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Sid:)

    You need a crossover cable - are you using one?

    thanks but the problem is not with the cable...its what I should do after I join my PC...I mean....configuring the IPs and stuffs.

    Try this IP setting:

    Win 2000:
    Assign/Specify IP 192.168.0.1

    Win 98:
    Assign/Specify IP 192.168.0.2

    Make sure you have Client for Microsoft Networks loaded on both and File/Print Sharing if you want to share using My Network. (if setting up workgroup, give them both the same workgroup name).

    Along with CBozeman make sure the subnet masks are 255.255.255.0

    hi,
       I did that...but its not working...the workgroup is seen but the same computer comes there...it doesnt show the  other one. This is how I have done. I have used only the TCP/IP protocol in both the PCs. In both the PCs the PC shows itself in network neighbourhood as well as the workgroup. It can ping with it's IP but when I give the IP of the other PC it gives request timed out...what can be the problem. Can you help me out?

    If you are not able to ping IPs, either the TCP/IP setup is wrong or there is no network link.  Does the network cards both show a cable link?

    Please post your ipconfig /all from command line.
