Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
Unable to share the printer indtalled on xp machine, When access the printer ,receive an IPC$ dialog box.
XP machine is in domain & win98 machine is in workgroup. Previously, it was able to share the same printer but now from any 98 machine unable to share the same printer.
Pls advice me what to do ?
Thanks & Regards
1. How are these two computers networked? Through a router, or by a crossover cable?
2. Is the network workgroup the same on both computers?
3. Have you tried turning off any firewalls or rerunning their workgroup setup?
4. Remember, to share the printer the host computer must be on. Is it?
5. Did you right click on that printer and choose share this on the network? Also: the lack of a login prompt is probably the problem. To see,
