NETBEUI ERROR MESSAGE?

By petere ·
I am e-mailing with response to peer-to-peer networking.
I have successfully networked two computers (Win 98 and Win ME) to a D-Link router (DHCP).
I have successfully installed NETBEUI on both and shared folders on both.
Win ME now prints using two printers on Win98 machine. At this point I am very happy.
However, when I shut down the Win 98 machine (even after shutting down the Win Me machine), I get an error message:

0028:C157D1BB in VXD NETBEUI (01)
+0000152B. Current Application will be terminated.

The addresses changed the next time, however the VXD NETBEUI (X) message is the same.

HELP ME PLEASE!

Regards,

Peter Edelberg

try releasing your shares before shutting down the pc's It sounds like you might have an open share to a pc that was shut down already.

A message box popped up prior to this error warning, indicating that there was still a connection in use. The same message came up when the Win ME computer was shut down first. I know that this is the reason, I need to know the solution (how do I release the share quickly & easily- i.e. batch script or shortcut to batch script that can be double clicked on desktop).
In addition, once released, will the share be automatically reconnected upon reboot?

You can release the share from inside Explorer by right-clicking on the icon for the shared folder and selecting 'Disconnect network drive' (your message may vary).

In general, in a home network you should only connect to a share when you need it, and disconnect when you are done. This avoids the nasty messages. Also, if you map a network drive, do NOT check the 'Reconnect on login' box.

Good luck.

NETBEUI ERROR MESSAGE?

The Key is looking at the D-Link router which issues Dynamic IP addresses.
The solution is to turn off the D-Link router, and then shutdown.
The laptop running WinME does not have the error when shutting down (it also is shared). The desktop is running Win98 and does create the error.
My guess is that the Protocol drivers need to be updated (Win98 Second Edition + ?).
Any advice

Unless you have to have netbeui, I don't know any reason why you should, Dump Netbeui and run tcp/ip.

Think about upgrading the 98 machine to me or better. 98 had an bad problem with shutting down with shares.

Good Luck Lee
