Windows XP and Windows NT 4.0

By cy.tusanda ·
In my office, we had 2 (two) Windows NT 4.0 server. Both are PDC and configured with a trust relationship.

One of our user had a new OS, Windows XP Professional.

The 2 (two) NT server has domain names:
#1: Jakarta
#2: Domain (funny name for a server huh?)

In "Jakarta" we had setup a workgroup called "Windows98", all the workstations are connected to this workgroup. Except the workstation which has a Windows XP.

It can browse to both servers, share the servers hard drives, but cannot connect to other workstations in "Windows98" workgroup.

If I change the Win XP setting so it will join the "Windows98" workgroup, it can't. But when I set to join "Jakarta" domain it was able to join the domain, and can logon to "Domain" domain.

Can anybody help?

Windows XP and Windows NT 4.0

When you try to have the XP box join the Win 98 "workgroup" called "Windows98", what happens? Do you get any error messages or dialogues popping up? This should not be a problem at all, since the XP box does not haved to authenticate against a server/DC to join a "workgroup".
