Default win98 - winxp woes...

sponsored links

 
This is weird...

I've got 2 computers networked (crossover). One is win98 and the other is winxp pro. The win98 computer is the one that has internet access.

I've just had to re-install windows98 and then had to sort out the network on that side of things. The thing is, I can't get my WinXP computer to access the files on the shared drives of the win98 computer.

The win98 computer can access the files on the Winxp computer. The winxp computer can access the internet through the win98 computer but cannot access the files!

So both computers see each other, both computers access the internet (ICS on the win98 machine), both computers can ping each other but only the win98 computer can access the winxp computer files not the other way round...

...what's going on!?

Sorry people, I'm as thick as two short planks!

I forgot to configure Zone Alarm on the Win98 computer!

All working fine now.

Duh me!
