Dialup Networking for Win98 2nd edition

By mtsigam ·
ERROR RECEIVED AFTER TRYING TO CONNECT:DUN could not negotiate a compatible set of network protocols specified in the Server Type settings. Check your network configurations in control panel and try again. Customer had been working fine before upgrading from win95 to win98 2nd edition....


What I did:Verified UNDER"Server Type" "Enable Software Compression" and "TCP/IP" were selected. Removed/Reinstalled "Dial Up Adapter", "Microsoft Family Logon" and
"TCP/IP" in the network panel
-Removed Dial Up Script Temporarily
-Removed/Reinstalled the MRIS Dialer
-Removed/Reinstalled "Dial Up Networking"
-Did standard modem troubleshooting (init. strings/port settings etc..)

My solution was adding "IPX/SPX" and "NetBEUI" Customer was able to connect again...so my question is: why did"IPX/SPX" and "NetBEUI" had to be the only solution...I thought TCP/IP Under server tyepe was the only one needed...(not a networked computer) "IPX/SPX" and "NetBEUI" were not checked under server type...If anyone can expl

The protocols are negotiated end-to-end so if the Server on the other end is expecting to see IPX packets, sending only IP packets will result in the error message you saw.

However, I can't explain why you had to add both IPX and NetBeui but without knowing what was on the other end, I can't even attempt a guess.

regards!

I would install the Client for Microsoft Networks. Then remove the Windows Family... For the protocols, remove NetBEUI and IPX/SPX. For TCP/IP properties, disable WINS. For Client for MS.. properties, select Quick Logon. Search for and delete all .pwl files. Set the dial-up back the way you originally had it. Make sure all critical updates are applied from the Windows Update site. After boot up, select logoff, and log back on to reset the passwording. Then try the dial-up again.
