NT 4.0 File Sharing not working

By zimam ·
I have a situation here... I have a PC/client with dial up connection to a server (testing something). The client has Windows XP and the server is NT 4.0 with sp6. The problem is when I connect via a network connection, I can see any shares onthe server, but when I dial up I can't see any shares. Any one know why this could be???

Any insight would be appreciated.

maybe the xp firewall is on the dial up connection? that will interfere with file sharing...

to check, right-click the dial up connectoid (in control panel, internet connections)and pick properties, advanced. uncheck the box if it is checked....

In the properties of the dialup connection you have to specify, netbeui/netbios protocols too.

I added the only item listed with the words NetBIOS in them...
NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol...

Are there more??? What do I need to do to add to see them addd into the list or was this the only one that I should have???

Did you add the XP user as a RAS user under Remote Access Administrator? If not, the computer will be able to connect, but will not be able to access any network resources.

I went in to Remote Access Administrator Gave user "MOD" permission, at low speed...Still get the same behavior...

Scenario again:

XP Home system dialing into a Network (NT 4.0)
Get connection but that's it can't Map a drive and move forward...

Same scenario with not dial dial up but rather networked..

RESULT: Works just fine.....helpppppp plz.
