Cannot see Computer and cannot Access Re

By lchacon ·
Hi:
I have set up a peer to peer Network using Windows Xp Home Edition and Win98SE. Win 98 is the one that connects to the internet. This is the situation: I am able to browse the Web on both PC's, I can also ping each PC. In the Win XP I can see the Win98 but I canno acces the resources I get this message: cannot find path and something else about permissions; and on the Win98 I cannot even see the Win XP. I have done some research on Microsoft Site, check protocols and reinstalling the Network Wizard, but no luck. If anybody knows the way around I will appreciate.
Thank you,
Luis

Check network protocols. Win 98SE should have IPX/SPX, TCP/IP and NETBEUI. Same thing goes with Win XP.

Installation instructions for NetBEUI protocol on Windows XP.

* copy nbf.sys into the %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ directory
* copy netnbf.inf into the %SYSTEMROOT%\INF\ directory
* open network connection properties and use "Install..." button to add NetBEUI protocol

Maybe this could help.

NetBEUI needs to be installed on both computers.

Then go to Control Panel --> Users and passwords on each computer....

Add the XP login/password to the Win98 authorized list and add the 98 login/password to the WinXP authorized list.

I know what this sounds like but...
Make sure that you your problem is not caused by a firewall XP (or third party) hiding the resources.
