Im trying to network 2 computers at home using crossover cables. One is running XP Professional 'n the other 98SE. I wont be able to share the internet coz theres just 1 NIC on this machine so it can be either used for internet or networking the 2 pcs. I followed this link to network the 2 of them. http://www.homenethelp.com/web/howto/net.asp Since Im not going to use the net I'll have to put in static IP in both of them which I put as 192.168.10.100 on this machine and 192.168.10.101 on the other one and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 in both the machines. I also put them in the same workgroup and i also enabled NetBios over TCP/IP in Xp.Now the problem is that in 98SE in the Network Neighborhood I can see that machine itself but not XP and in My Network Places in XP there r no machines in the workgroup computers. Also when I ping from 98SE to XP I get proper response but its not the same case vice versa.In 98SE when I type the command "net view" it only shows that computer in the workgroup. I face the same problem when I use the Network Setup Wizard in XP to set it up for networking. Plz help. Also I would appreciate if you can insert some links to other Windows networking forums which u know. Khotwadi.
