Sharing Folders and such

For XP, the info you need is here:

For Windows 98, here:

Just make sure that you place them both into the same workgroup, that XP has the firewall off, and you aren't digitally signing communications in XP.

Wrong forum

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions."

Please re-post there.

Thank you.

Nobody was on your ******* back.

It was merely polite advise that TR has 2 distinct forums, each for intended for & designed to serve different purposes.

That you ended up in the wrong one is a common problem, one that as been addressed in several discussions.

While there are steps that TR can take to direct members to the proper forum, to date thay have shown little interest in doing so.

Therefore, it falls to the members to attempt to mitigate the problem as best we can.

Don't be discouraged

The sarcasm in my apparently supportive post to deepsand may not be apparent. I am, in fact, deriding his gestapo-like activities as a self appointed forum police.

Don't let deepsand or any others of his kind discourage you. He is out of line, not you.

1) Fail to understand the difference between the 2 forums; or,

2) That you deliberately chose to ignore them?

hey sorry

by jgavazzi87 In reply to need help with networking ...

i didnt mean to start a war of words here, im just simply confused about a problem i ran into and needed help. i knew there were some good people who could help me out with my problems but i didnt expect to find people like deepsand acting like the fbi telling people where they should post. maybe instead of using your brain to think up ways to correct people, you could use it in a more positive way, by helping people like me with some technical issues.
