Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
Trying to help friend remotely. Besides not being an expert in networking, I've never used NT4.
3-pc home LAN with NT4, Win 98 and XP Pro SR2.
No problems with Win 98 access to/from either of the others.
XP Pro can access NT4 files.
NT4 only sees XP Pro in Network Neighborhood and Win Explorer, does not allow access to it.
XP Pro was the latest computer added, and required a lot of tweaking months ago to get it working properly together. Unfortunately, the user recently restored NT4 with a Ghost image made before the connection was configured, and has been denied access to XP Pro from NT4 since. (There was not a new image made after the successful setup).
Therefore, it seems that the problem might lie with NT4, but can't see where.
Unique computer names, same workgroup, user names (admin) and passwords identical.
Have played around with permissions, policies, services and shares, but no combination has worked so far.
After each settings change, both computers are rebooted. If the change has no effect, the original setting is restored and another reboot.
Nothing of help in Event Viewer of either PC.
More details may be supplied, if I know what you need.
Any suggestions will be most welcome, thanks!
If you arent too worried about security since it is at home, enable the guest account on the windows XP machine, also disable the firewall on the XP machine ( it is on by default )
let me know
