Networking Win2k & Win98 PC problem
yalanzi May-28-01 02:08 PM
I am trying to network a win2k and a win98 PC. Hardware successfully detected and installed on both machines. IP addresses 192.168.0.1 & 192.168.0.2 were used. The problem I have is that the win98 PC can see and access the win2k PC, but the win2k PC can see itself only in the workgroup and CANNOT see the win98 PC.
I am using a LINKSYS home networking kit.
Any help would be highly appreciated.

Do you have file and printer sharing installed and something shared on the Win 98 computer?

I'm having similar problems. I upgraded one machine to win2k prof. and now I can only see the win2k machine when browsing the network, but if I ping the 98 box it will then show up.?!?! After I make a connection, I have no problems from the 2k box. The 98 machines are the main problem. I can see thw 2k box in network neighborhood, but when I try to connect I get prompted for a password to ICS$. I'm lost....

I had that problem on the 98 machine too but I resolved it. On the win2k machine you will have to setup the user that is accessing from the 98 machine. Once setup on the win2k machine, make sure you log on the 98 machine with that userid and if you get prompted to enter a password when accessing the win2k, just make sure u use the right password.(to setup users on win2k, go to Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Users and Passwords)
I hope this help.
I am still trying to resolve my problem

You might want to try adding the NetBEUI protocol in addition to TCP/IP. Larry
