Networking Win2000 AND Win98

by hitchcock4 In reply to NETWORKING WINXP AND WIN9 ...

[These directions are for Win2000 and Win98, but Win2000 is similar enough to XP that it should work.]

First, make sure that the IP address and subnet in TCP/IP are similar.
Computer A: IP=192.168.10.1 and subnet 255.255.255.0

Computer B: IP=192.168.10.2 and subnet 255.255.255.0

Then make sure that they are in the same workgroup. Right-click on My Computer/Properties/Network Ident/Properties, then enter a workgroup for the XP machine. Similar on 98, but I think you need to start by right-clicking on Network Neighborhood.

Both computers will ask you to restart.

Then, I would pick a folder on the XP machine to share. Although you can share a whole C: or drive, I would not recommend this for security reasons.

Please read the following. Although long, I think it gives good details on how to share folders from XP or Win2000.

Networking WINXP and WIN98SE

by joey gallo In reply to Networking Win2000 AND Wi ...

I am having a network employing WinXP and Win98SE as workstation Operating Systems, the Server is running Win2000 Server Operating System. It is running well, you just have to make sure the IP numbers of the server and workstations are in the same range e.g. 190.168.1.1 to 190.168.1.100, and they have the same Workgroup or Domain name.

The only extra thing I did was, with machines running the WinXP Operating System, I introduced a new user, where I gave a User Name and Password that is seton the Server. This is where I also inputed the IP's and Workgroup or Domain name I talked about above.
