I currently have a cable modem going into a router with 4 port switch. There are three computers on our LAN- two 98's and an XP. All of the computers are in the same workgroup. The two 98's have NETBieu, TCP/IP, and IPX/SPX with file and print sharing disabled for tcp/ip but enabled for netbios and ipx/spx. Both have client for microsoft networks. The computer names are different. So far the two 98's can communicate and share files and a printer. The XP has TCP/IP and IPX/SPX enabled. I recently did the ipx/spx and this allowed my two 98's to access shared resources on the XP. However the XP cannot find these two hosts at all. The XP has ZoneAlert, and i know for a fact that the tcp/ip and ipx/spx are all clicked for file and printer sharing as well as the microsoft client. The XP has the LAN connection as well as a bridge connection between 1394 and LAN connection3. I am unfamiliar with how to change the built in firewall settings. I do not know how this may affect what I want to do. This is all the info i know, if anyone knows what needs to be done to allow the XP to communicate and access the 98's shared resources please help!
