Accessing Windows 2000 Shares from Win9x

By BC3 Technologies ·
I've got a network (TCP/IP) set up mostly with Windows 9x computers.
Recently I upgraded a couple of the larger machines to Windows 2000
Professional. In doing this, I had to re-share the directories that were
previously shared and am now facing a problem. When a Windows 9x
computer tries to even view the shares listed under one of the Win2k
computers, A prompt for password entry box appears, claiming a password is
needed for the "\\COMPUTERNAME\IPC$" share. I've never seen this share,
nor set it up. On the other Win2k machine, when trying to access the other
Win2k machine, a prompt appears to access "\\COMPUTERNAME\" with
both a user name and password entry field.

How can i make Win2kPro have anonymous network access to the shares
that were previously shared (not needing a password or prompt of any sort)
under Windows 9x??????

thanks
brandon

Greetings,

When trying to access a network drive or printers share on a Windows 2000/XP computer from a Windows 95/98/ME computer, you may receive an IPC$ dialog box like the one above. (See link for the diagram "above")

If you do, then you need to configure security on your Windows 2000/XP computer.

Cut and paste this link for the whole story, resolution, diagrams, etc.

(REMOVE SPACES from the pasted URL if they snuck in.)
