Virtual PC 2007 with 2 NIC cards, Realtek and Intel Pro 10/100. Host operating system Windows XP SP2, virtual system Win988 SE. I am running a medisoft database on the win98 machine and a medisoft client ont he XP box. I am also using DHCP on the Realtek nic.
In the network adapter properties (virtual pc), I choose one adapter and choose the intel pro 100. Whats funny is I can surf the net with both pc's but cannot see the workgroup from the virtual pc. I am an engineer and am pretty versed in setting up LAN's. What am I missing? I have also tried bridging and the loopback adapter only caused duplicate ip addresses. My friend told me I need to have at least one user that is common on all my workgroup pc's in order to view all workgroup computers....but as we all know, the win98 users applet is not the greatest,
