Win98 --> WinXP IPC$ / Network problem
Posted on 2005-05-15
I have a problem where i am trying to get a Win98 PC to connect to a share (any share) on a WinXP PC. Everytime i try to access the share, it asks me for a password. I have set up a user/pass on both machines IDENTICAL, created different users, changed the FAT32 partition to NTFS, started the XP machine first then the Win98 PC, enabled the guest user etc still no cigar.
I've had this problem before with other machines, and the only solution was to reformat the XP machine, or in some cases only a system restore was required. I would like to avoid both of these solutions if possible, but of course if it is the only solution it will have to be done.
All help is greatly appreciated.
