I have 2 computers connected with a crossover cable.
I have been successfully networking them for several months.
I had to switch computers recently so I tried to set the new computer's network card properties identical to the one I'm replacing but I can't seem to get the network to work the same way.
I'm using a win 2k machine as a server so I can access my photo library which resides on the 2 hard drives in the win 2k machine. The connected machine is running winXP. When I ping the win2k from the winXP it sees the connection. When I ping the XP from the Win2k I get time out responses.
When I run cmd prompt from the XP to call up the win 2k I am asked for a user name and password.
Can anybody walk me through this.
