Win98-WinXP lan problems

By dinwitty ·
I have scoured the questions here for solutions for a solid Win98/WinXP LAN connection.
I have tried tip this, tip that.
Close, no cigar, had Win98 username show up on WinXP system, but no file transfers, cant find the
computer.
I need a clear step by step from the ground up on both systems to solve the issue.

NetBIOS over TCP/IP

by CG IT In reply to Win98-WinXP lan problems

Windows 98 requires a host file/NetBIOS/ WINS to resolve computer name to address.

enable netBIOs over TCP/IP on the XP machine or create a host file so that W98 can see the XP machine.
