I've been trying to network my desktop (host) with my laptop (guest) using Direct Cable Connection as in your Feb '99 issue. But I'm getting a message on the guest, 'Direct Cable Connection was unable to display the shared folders on the host computer. To see the shared folders, type in the name of the host computer' in a box which appears. When I do, I get the message 'Cannot find the host computer'. I've tried the various Microsoft troubleshooting tips without success. Any ideas?
I'm connecting with a serial cable between 2 Win98 machines.
