Is it possible to view a Windows 98 shar

By csu_tech ·
I have just a few Win 98 machines and mostly Win 2K Pro machines but I can't seem to be able to view any shared folders on my Windows 98 boxes from Win 2k. I get a "This account is not autorized to view this folder" error. I can view win 98 from win 98 just fine and win 2k from win 2k perfectly and also Win 2k from 98 but not the other way?

Yes it definitely is possible. Is it possible that the Win98 are using share level security and the Win 2K would be try to access them via User level permissions?

It is not very difficult, i had the problem myself and the sollution depends on what type of security you have on the Win98 machine.

If the Share is protected using the userlist from a domain, it just works the same as under NT, give the appropriate user the rights to read and/or write in the share.

If the share is password protected, just connect to the share and fill in guest as username and the password for the share and it will open up nicely.

Succes,
