Ok guys, Here is what I can do and what I would like to do. I have a normal PC with Windows XP pro and it has a SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter with a simple crossover cable to my old PC, which also has a SiS 900 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter. The operating system that is on my old PC has Windows 95 with all of the updates from the windows update site. I have installed the recommended protocols (i.e., netbeui, TCP/IP etc) and I have also installed RealVNC server and viewer on each machine. This works great between the two PC’s so I no TCP/IP is working fine. I can also run Final Doom great through both the machines. Another point is that I can view shared folders on my old machine from my normal machine but I am having trouble viewing my old machine in Windows XP Pro. I have installed all the recommended protocols on Windows XP Pro and also the unsupported netbeui on Windows XP Pro. I have tried numerous things to get Windows XP Pro to see the 95 machine but I’m struggling at this point. I have also made things simple (because I have a crossover cable) to keep managed IP numbers on each machine (not using DHCP, I disabled the service in Windows XP Pro). The network layout is like this…note, it works fine in FinalDoom and RealVNC over TCP/IP. Host/Normal PC has a name of MARKSPC, manual IP = 192.168.168.2 Old/95 PC has a name of MARKSPC2, manual IP = 192.168.168.1 The workgroup on each machine is NORMALPC to help keep things simple. So I would like to know how I could see shared Windows 95 folders through Windows XP Pro. I’m hoping not to use DHCP as I would prefer to keep things manual as I have a simple network without any router rubbish. Also if I could move away from the unsupported NETBEUI protocol that would be great and use my file sharing through TCP/IP would be impressive as my first attempt at that was miserable. Well if you can help out that would be great. PS, Host machine has NTFS and Old machine has FAT32.
