Hi,

I have a windows 98 network (IP 200.200.200.* mask 255.255.255.0 Gateway 200.200.200.254.) behind a router connected to a windows XP shared drive (192.168.1.100). The internal IP of the router is 200.200.200.254 and the external IP 192.168.1.200. I can map a shared drive on the XP machine in windows 98 but after a while (15 - 30mins) the drive becomes disconnected. I also have a Windows XP machine on the windows 98 network and when I share the same drive on this PC it does not get disconnected. Any ideas what might be done to remove this "timeout".

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
