WIN98/95 Peer-to-Peer Networking

By spooky ·
Two seperate issues: A). I have two computers with WIN98 1st edition on one and WIN98 2nd edition on the other computer. I have peer to peer network set up through 10Mbps hub and card. When I click on Network Neighborhood ,I see each computer inselfon each pc but not the other computer. And sometimes I don't even see each computer itself. I have tried reinstalling TCP/IP; Ethernet card driver and what not; nothing is working. B). On the second problem - I have set up peer to peer with 98/95. I can see both computers in Network Neighborhood on 95 machine but I don't see either computer on 98 machine. When I click on "Entire Network" on 98, I get the error message "cannot browse the network". What's weird - at least that's what I think - is that I can ping 98 machine from 95 and also print from 95 machine to the printer attached to 98 machine. Hope this not confusing! In both cases - all computers are in same workgroup and File and Print sharing are turned on. Thanks in advance!

WIN98/95 Peer-to-Peer Networking

Configure both systems with file and print sharing. Configure both systems with the same subnet mask and make sure both IPs are legal for your subnet-mask and on the same subnet. (The IPs 10.0.0.3 and 10.0.0.4 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 will do nicely for you) Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP if possible. When you ping to each others IP or NetBIOS name they should resolve using b-node broadcasts and ARP should resolve the IPs to MAC Addresses just fine on the hub. Make sure at least one of your PCs is setup with browse master enbaled and put both PCs in the same workgroup (not necessary, but it saves you clicking around in the network neighborhood). Also, on both PCs make sure Client for Microsoft Networks is their and that it is configured to be your default logon. When you logon when the PC is started make sure not to simply cancel past it (this may be the cause of your unable to browse the network error message). You use any user name and a null password, just don't hit cancel.
