Direct Cable Connection - 2000 and 98

By igadhia ·
I am having some serious probs with DCC between w98 and w2000. most of the configs I try do not connect when they do, it asks for a password for IPC$ for which I have none.

appreciate any hints or tips.

The problem you are having is security related. When you are connecting a 95/98/ME system to an NT/2000 system you need to make sure the account you are using on the 95/98/ME system has a matching user account on the NT/2000 system. By matching userID and password between the systems you should connect without problems.
