Sharing Access to W2K

By qballrail ·
I have a W2K box running as a fileserver on an XP Pro network. I've recently added a W98SE (DON'T ask <G&gt laptop which will readily access the XP stations flawlessly. However, when attempting to access the W2K server, it asks for the default password (which I did NOT set). The resource is \\server\IP$ however, I have the drives on this box shared as their respective drive letters. No issue like this with XP. First, I installed IPX which is allowing 2-way communication between each stationand the server. On the 98SE laptop, I installed NETBeui (the ONLY way to get it to even see the network) then the same with the W2K box (the rest, remember, no problems) and while I can SEE the server on the network from the laptop, I get the password prompt window as described. I've checked my shares on the server and everything is as it should be. I have no problem accessing the XP stations as stated, and Internet access is also not a problem. I COULD push the files to the laptop as needed but I'd rather have the proper access.

This couldn't be a difficult thing, surely it's just something simple I'm missing. Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Jesse

Sharing Access to W2K

have you set up a user account on the win2k box with the exact username and password the win98 uses? (change to Client for MS networks as your Primary Network Logon on the win98 machine, write down username and password you choose when you startup the laptop and get to logon screen).

Wow.. I knew it was a simple solution! Thanks! It worked. My Primary Network Logon was already set to MS Networks. Again Thank you!
