    Default cleaning up few network issues

    finally got XP home and 98(1st edition) networked. only issues r:

    1.When double click on network neighbour hood in 98 and click winxp machine (named m-100) error comes up saying "\\m-100 not accessible no permission to access resource" i can ping it and get a reply

    2. When sharing a dialup connection with Xtra, Win98 machine cannot access internet. at bottom of cannot display page, "no server or dns error" is displayed. does this have something 2 do with DNS and Alternate in Winxp tcp/ip properties?

    Win XP maual IP address: 192.168.0.1
    subnet 255.255.255.0

    default gateway: 192.168.0.1


    98

    ip: 192.168.0.2


    wat is the dns and alternate 4 xtra diapup? or how do i configure IE?

    I take it you've enabled file sharing on both?

    And shared a folder on each (NOT the whole hard drive).

    Any firewalls enabled on XP? If so, you have to add 98's ip to it. Depending on which firewall is installed.

    There's more to 98 than just the entering the ip address on a network.

    You have to add the subnet 255.255.255.0 as well, and enter 192.168.0.1 as the gateway (on 98).

    You have to tick ICS (on the XP dialup / properties / advanced, so 98 can get on the net).

    You dont need 192.168.0.1 as the gateway on the XP dialup. Delete it.

    And click on OK.

    Not a good idea trying to share burners. They werent made for sharing.

    Umm which PC has the printer connected to it? 98 or XP?

    Is it XP Home or Pro?

    Well, I would either connect tv to video out on the video card (if it has one on the main PC).

    Rip the dvd u wanna view to hdd, or buy another burner / dvd for the other PC/s. Since they're pretty cheap to buy now.

    You could try sharing the pc thats got the burner/dvd.

    BUT you'll still have to put the dvd in the main pc's DVD to play it.

    and lastly about sharing the printer

    HP PSC 1200 i got the install cd but i cant seem to find the drivers so i can share it. Win98 refuses to install it without the inf file. Same with XP. it is connected to the Win xp (XP home) how do i share it so the 98 can use it without pullin out the usb plug all the time? Apart from that i have a network that works wonderful thanks 2 u guys!

    If you cant install the driver for the printer on XP, disconnect it from the USB port first.

    Then open the cd if it doesnt open/autorun when u put the cd in the cd/dvd.

    Click on the setup.exe file on the cd not the inf file. Once it has finished installing the drivers, reboot XP, then plug the USB cable for the printer back into a USB port.

    Then it SHOULD detect / install the drivers for XP.

    Then go to control panel / printers and faxes, highlight the printer icon / sharing option, then select share this printer. (In XP).

    Then if 98 can see and get into XP, go to 98's control panel / printer option and see if the printer appears when u go to add printer on the network.

    If you are running the free version of zone alarm I think that you will troubles with the xp/win98 connection. I did at any rate.

    I found using all the "automatic" setting worked best. For what it is worth my settings on Internet settings in the control panel on my win98 machine are ,

    security settings "automatic logon only in intranet zone" is ticked

    privacy is medium

    connections - "dial up and vitual; private Network settings" is blank and boxes in LAN settings are all blank.
