Win98 machines can't access resources on W2000 machine
Scott Jan-16-01 05:52 PM
I have a peer to peer network of 10 Win98 machines and 1 W2000 machine. I've shared directory resources on all machines. Using TCP/IP protocol. I can see the W2000 machine in the neighborhood on any W98 machine. When I try to access the W2000 machine I get message:"You must supply a passord to make this connection"
Resource \\CPU9\IPC$
I have not been able to find where I need to assign this password on the W2000 machine.

Help!

Is it Win 2000 Server or another version of Win 2000? Larry

Same problem with W2K professional & W'Me - additionally I can not see my w2k hardrives even from the w2k when I browse it from the network neighborhood - although I set their sharing to full access.
Also when I try to look at the W'Me machine from w2k Network Neigh - it seems to hang.
One peculiar thing is that the only subnet mask the w2k allows me to set for fixed ip in TCP/IP is 255.0.0.0 - what is this about.
When I talked about it to my NA, he said that it is the w2k active directory problem and that our company has the same problem with some older stations using NT4 trying to access w2k server.
I hope there would be some solution to this from Lary!
Also om W'Me like on W'98 during setup I was allowed to chose the name for my workgroup - alike on w2k, but w2k also created some default (I assume active directory) workgroup called WORKGROUP, so now I see two groups in netwotk neiborhood - maybe this is the part of the problem and solution?

Scott, can you see the resources on your w'98 machines from w2k? That is all I would need actually - so if yes, how did you do it?

Larry,
It's a W2k Professional version. I can access all my w98 machines from the W2000(professional version) machine without any problems. As for how I enabled this, I'm not sure because that part worked from the start. I allready had the w98 peer TCP/IP network setup and W2000 configured itself. I'm actually running two groups of W98 computers, one group using Netbeui and the other using TCP/IP. This is just my crude way of separating the network groups so I don't have the wrong people snooping around. W2000 configured itself and can access resources on both networks. I think the password issure is probably a clue to my problem but I don't have enough W2000 or NT experience to figure it out. Know of any good resource guides for understanding the W2000 password system?

Again, I get message:"You must supply a passord to make this connection"
Resource \\CPU9\IPC$

I have a copy 0f 2000 Pro, but have not gotten around to installing it on one of my own computers yet. I guess I had better push doing it up a few notches on my priority list. More and more people with Win 2000 are visiting my site. I have installed it on and networked a couple of customer machines, but have not spent a lot of time on it. Try sharing the Win 2000 drives and giving them a share name other than the default. That looks like the cause of the problem. Use share level security. Larry

Did u setup sharing of the drive or folder?. What u need to do is right click on my computer, go to manage. Then left click on shared folders. This should open the right side dialog box. It should contain folders, shared, sessions and open files.Right click on the shares folder and select new share.Then you can browse the drive or folder you would like to share. select what u want to share then give it a name that will appear as on the network in the share name dialog box. This will create new shared drive or directory. You can then double click on the shares folder again and set the attributes of the share you just created.Note: you can only do this if you are logged in as the administrator...Hope this answers you question..

Good Luck

Gary,

Problem solved.

1. The Windows 2000 machine needed to be set up for NO DOMAIN on the TCP/IP network.

and

2. I needed to add the USER id and password for each user to the W2000 machine.

I also found a site that addressed setting up the W98/W2000 network.

Thanks for your input!
