I have 3 computers networked with a hub. The computers are
1. Win2000 prof.
2. Win98
3. ME

All computers are using tcp/ip with settings Obtain IP address automatically
All computers are running Client for M.S. networks
All computers belong to the same workgroup
When I ipconfig the computers I get the following
Win2000 169.254.147.232 sub mask: 255.255.0.0
Win98 169.254.158.220 sub mask 255.255.0.0
ME 169.254.12.229 sub mask 255.255.0.0

All computers can ping see each other and see each other through explorer
I can access back and forth between the Win2000 and Win98 computers just fine.
I can access the ME computer from the Win2000 just fine
I can access the Win98 computer from the ME computer just fine
Problem: when I try to access the Win2000 computer from ME I get the following message:
"Enter network password
Resource: \\Win2000\IPC$
Password:

Why ? and how do I get around this ?

Set up the ME machine as a User on W2K use the machine name and logon password.

Hi,

From what i can see, all 3 stations are using APIPA IP addresses. Which is a automatic IP assigned if the station is unable to get a valid IP address from the DHCP server or it is unable to resolve the DNS server to get a valid IP address. I would suggest that you create an additional scope to those stations.

Pls check to see if your DHCP server is authorised to assign those IP addresses to the above mentioned stations.

rdgs,
Roland.

No DHCP server/service being used just using APIPA IP addresses.

If you want to access win2k from win9x or me, first install netbios (NetBeui) to all machines.
You propably must remove administrative share
from win2k, or you have to give "acces this computer from network" rights (control panel -> administrativetools ->local security policy -> local policy user rights assignment) to user name you use to log on to win9x or me.
