    Default Networking 101

    i am a 16yr old who is pretty good with computers. I am trying to network a Win XP home PC with and Win98 (not SE) machine. I want to use TCp/IP protocol but am really unsure how to go about it. All guides on the internet say something about Ip addressing. I tried and failed at this. At the current time i got both networked through IPX/SPX which is really slow and Win98 cannot "see" Xp but can mapped hdds. My aim is to share files and a HP PSC 1200 printer and WinXP has DVD drive and 98 CDRW i want to have them shared

    Any help or guide wood b great thankyuo

    Drop IPXD/SPX and install TCP/IP and NetBEUI instead.

    Works like a dream for W98 & W95 +W2K.

    I am not sure if XP offers NetBEUI, and from a previous thread I think you might have to add it in from another source.

    Somebody more knowledgeable than I am will doubtlessly put you right.

    XP can use Netbeui, but you have to install it from cd.

    Only TCP/IP V6, Network Monitor driver, and NWLink IPX/SPX Netbios compat network appear under protocols.

    BUT if u have probs with Netbeui MS wont help, as it isnt officially supported by MS.

    it shouldn't be slow with ips/spx. just make sure you have netbios ticked/installed and the same frame type listed.

    i thought someone did a FAQ on this ??
    Tweak it till it breaks
