Sharing win2000 folder from win98 pc

By nathanv ·
I have a win98 pcs to share files from win2k pc.
On win2k pc, C: properties, sharing shows IPC$,C$ and C (created by me) with "Everyone" & Full control.

On win98 pc, i see win2k pc and no shares.
When I click on win2k icon,
I get
a window pops up:
Enter Network Password
Supply pw to make this connection
Resource \\Win2kPc\IPC$

Why I am not able to see win2k share C and why is it asking for pw for IPC$?

Help!!

You need to do one of the following to fix this:
1. Join both machines to a domain & log in to Win98 with a domain account
2. Create an account on the Win2k machine that's the same as the one you use on win98.
3. Next time you log into the Win98 machine use the same name & password as an account on the Win2k machine.

Any of the above will be sufficient to fix your problem.
