DOS client can't see XP stations, but can see 98 stations
Posted on 2006-04-18
Hi, I have a client that has a heavy machines controlled by dos 6.22 computers, these comptuers use that net start thing and are able to connect to 98 computers, but the new xp computers seem invisible to them. Below is what I have tried to rectify the issue.
Loaded netbui on the xp stations from the xp cd
enabled netbios over ip
enabeld the guest account, made it at an admin
set local security policy to the lest restrictions in local account policy
setting the xp stations in an lmhost file on the dos stations
No avail. I can't ping them (hear I can't anyway) cant net view their netbios names, or IP address.
