Unable to map a windows 3.11 drive from winxp via netbeui protocol


I have a windows XP workstation with NETBEUI installed. I would like to map a drive in a Windows 3.11 workstation, but I'm unable to map it.

Other workstations such as windows 2000 and windows 98  are able to map to the windows 3.11 workstation but except the windows xp platform workstations. I'd tried few other windows XP workstations but all getting the failure result.

It seems like windows xp netbeui protocol is incompatible with windows 3.11.

Is there other workaround to allow me gain access to the windows 3.11 harddisk drive via windows XP?

I have a Windows 3.11 machine with Microsoft TCP/IP installed on it and I have no trouble connecting from my Windows XP machines.  I do have NetBios over TCP enabled on the XP machines but I don't know if that makes any difference.

I did have to put NETBEUI on a Windows 98 machine and NWLINK on a Windows XP machine for them to talk to each other.

I would suspect that it's your Group policy on the Domain server that is preventing this - Have you put in a usercode/Password on the 3.11 and created a user on the 2008 server - It would not be a domain member but would have guest rights
