I have been tasked to set up a point-to-point connection over dial-up between two Windows XP computers. I have set up an incoming connection on both sides (either host can dial in to the other) and started the routing and remote access service. I am able to establish a connection but I can't map any drives (I can ping the remote host thi). I've set up a share with Everyone having full access but when I try to map the drive, I get "no network was found". I've tried mapping the drive by \\ IP address \ share name and by host name (but since there is no DNS server I knew that would not work). Is there any special way I need to map the drive? I also tried the 'net use' command.
Is there a minimum bandwidth/speed required to map a drive? I'm currently getting 38K speeds.
