Folder sharing between Win 2k and Win 98

By mikeb ·
When I try to access a shared folder on my Windows 2000 system from a Windows 98 system in a peer to peer network, I receive a message box
\\computer\IPC$
asking for a password. Then an error message stating I don't have permission. On the Windows 2000 machine, I have the shared permissions set to Everyone.

Folder sharing between Win 2k and Win 98

Make sure you have created user accounts on your win2k workstation for the people who need access. Make sure the ids and passswords match the ones they are using on their computers. You should be able to map drives on their computers that point to your Win2k workstation using UNC (ex. \\yourworkstaion\sharename)
Also make sure your NTFS permissions are in order.

\\computer\IPC$ is the default administrator share.
You need to create another share for users to be able to use this folder.

Hope this helps

Make sure the shared folder on the W2K system is not on a NTFS volume. The Win98 machine will not be able to see it.
