creating a workgroup

By msfiroudis ·
Hi,
I have a win2000 setup as a workgroup and a win98 connected to a hub which is connected to the win2000. They can see each other on the network.The win2000 can acess files on the win98 but the win98 cannot access files on the win2000.When the win98 tries to access anything on the win2000 I get the error \\(server name)ipc$. Can anybody let me know why I would get this. Thank's in advance

Try this?

On your Win98, "map" to the share on the Win2K, and while you're mapping, look for the "Connect As" option. Enter one of the userIDs that you have already setup on the Win2K box.

Alternatively, I believe that you can right-click on the share in "Network Neighbourhood" and "Connect As", again supplying a userID which already exists on the Win2K box.
