Windows Server 2000 & XP & 98SE

By formentin ·

I have client with Server 2000 domain and XP and 98 SE clients, they all logon to the server fine and browser the directories on the server ok, however the 98 SE clients cannot access shared printers on the XP clients.

98 SE clients have TCP/IP and NetBeui installed,
the computers on the server have enabled the access from version prior to 2000 installed, what am I forgetting or doing wrong ?

I have read something about Server in Mixed and Native modes, but didn't understand a great deal.

Can anyone help me please ??

Mixed and Native modes are two different modes which Active Directory can run in - Mixed Mode allows NT Domain Controllers, Native Doesn't - so this shouldn't affect it - check if the Server service is running on the XP clients as this service controls file & print sharing.
