Unable to browse network w98 peer to pee

By SysAdmin ·
I have a client that has a small peer to peer system set up. 2 computers - one desktop, and one notebook. From the notebook he can see his desktop system, but from his desktop system, he gets the error that he unable to browse the network. The FIND computer option will display the notebook name, but still unable to browse. MY notebook seems to work fine when I used it to replace his desktop sys. NetBu, with a hub. Thx

Network browsing in a Windows 9x environment can cause administrators all sorts of time-consuming problems. We can't explain the whole system of browsing here, but for the next few tips, we'll look at one cause of browsing problems—determiningthe correct Browse Master.
