Windows 3.11 network connection setup to Win 98 share
Posted on 2014-08-09
I'm looking for someone that remembers the Windows 3.11 days..
I have a client that uses a Win 3.11 pc for a CNC machine, Its running old sofware that
only works on this OS. I now have to setup a network share from a Windows 98 client (yes, I know..)
that the Windows 3.11 can connect to in order to load some CNC files.
So I created a "data" folder on the Windows 98 client. I added the IPX/SPX - NetBEUI protocols and the network file and printer sharing service. To make matters worse, all data is going over a old COAX network (YES I KNOW)
I did this same setup 8 years ago (on the same machine) and managed to set this up but I can't seem to get it fixed now. Do I need to config something extra to let the Win 3.11 see the Win98 share?
