Your running a windows 98 server? Do you not mean Windows NT server?
Windows 98 was not made to server as a server, there is no inherit file security permissions in place; just simple file/folder sharing.

If you need a simple file server, I would upgrade your 98 machine to windows 2000 or NT4.

Windows XP Professional works as a much more effective simple file server with much better security features.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

How to establish a network connection using ubuntu as server and windows xp as clients?


Make sure that you have samba installed, that will allow you to share folders as shares that Windows can see.

If you want to get tot he CLI on the ubuntu server from the XP machines, just download PuTTY (just google 'download putty'), and then you should be able to SSH to the ubuntu server.

Hope that helps!

Networking Issues


Problem: Network Cable Unplugged

Description: Don’t take this message literally - there are many causes besides not having a cable physically plugged into the network card. The message really means that the network card doesn’t detect a live link to another device on the other end of the cable.

Possible Solutions:
Download and install the latest network card driver program.
Check the cabling - a bad cable will prevent link detection. Substitute a cable that’s known to be good.
Check the link lights on the device on the other end of the cable, whether it’s a hub, switch, router, or a NIC in another computer. It should show a live link to the NIC. If it doesn’t, try a different port.
Auto-detecting speed and duplex mode can be unreliable. Set them manually. Most routers and switches use 100Mb, full duplex. Hubs can only use half duplex.
Problem: Renewing a DHCP lease fails, with error message “An error occurred while renewing interface <name>: The system cannot find the file specified.”

Problem: Network connection configured to obtain an IP address automatically has IP address 0.0.0.0

Solution: Make sure that the DHCP Client service is running:
Right click My Computer, and click Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Double click DHCP Client. If the Service status is Stopped, click Start.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.

Problem: Network Connection Has IP Address 169.254.x.x
Description: The network card is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, and it’s connected to a network with a DHCP server: hardware router, another computer running Internet Connection Sharing, cable modem, DSL modem, etc. But it gets a 169.254.x.x IP address, which indicates that it can’t communicate with the DHCP server:

Possible Solutions:
Connect the computer using a different Ethernet cable or hub/switch/router port.
Download and install the latest firmware for the hardware router.
Disable XP’s Internet Connection Firewall <../xp/ic_firewall.htm> on the local area network connection.
The card is configured to automatically sense network speed and duplex mode, but auto-sensing is failing. Configure the speed and duplex mode manually. For example, most switches and routers use 100 Mb speed and full duplex. To make the settings, right click the network connection and click Properties | Configure | Advanced.
Un-install the network card and move it to a different slot.
If you have a cable modem connection, turn off the computer, turn off the cable modem, and wait a few minutes. Turn on the cable modem, and then turn on the computer.
Problem: Renewing a DHCP lease fails, with error message “An error occurred while renewing interface <name>: The system cannot find the file specified.”

Solution: Make sure that the DHCP Client service is running:

Error Message: An error has occurred while trying to share <filename>. The Server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time.

Solution:
To start the Server service:

Right click My Computer and select Manage.
Double click Services and Applications.
Double click Services.
Scroll down the list of services and double click Server.
Click the Start button.
Set the Startup type to Automatic.
Click Apply and OK.
Problem: Computer A Can Ping Computer B, but not Vice Versa
Solution: This is almost always caused by an improperly configured firewall on Computer A.

Problem: One Computer Can’t Access Some Web Sites, but Other Computers Can

Solution: Look for the Windows Hosts file on the problem computer:
Windows 95/98/Me: C:\Windows\Hosts
Windows 2000: C:\WinNT\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Windows XP: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts
Open it with a text editor and you'll probably find lines with the names of the sites that you can't access. Delete those lines, save the file, and try again. If those are the only lines in the file, delete the file. Be sure to save it with a file name of just Hosts, with no file type. If your editor saves it as Hosts.txt, rename it to just Hosts.
The Hosts file can be created by "web accelerator" programs that store name-to-IP address translations. This might speed up access by a tiny amount, but it causes problems when a site's IP address changes.


Problem: A shared disk or folder doesn’t appear in My Network Places

Description: The disk or folder is shared correctly on another computer, but it doesn’t appear.
Solution 1: Click Add a network place and follow the prompts to add it. Browse to it through Entire Network, or specify the path name using the form \\computer\share.
Solution 2: Click View workgroup computers, then click the computer that has the shared disk or folder.

Problem: XP's Network Setup Wizard Says That No Network Card Is Installed

Solution: XP's Network Setup Wizard sometimes fails to recognize an installed and working network card. This is because the NIC's driver program doesn't respond correctly to all of the queries that the Wizard makes when it's looking for a NIC. Configure the card’s TCP/IP properties manually. Here’s how to do it for Windows 95/98/Me <../ics/icsclient.htm>, Windows 2000 <../ics/ics_win2k_client.htm>, and Windows XP <../xp_ics/clientwiz.htm>. Then set the workgroup name to MSHOME.


Problem: Windows XP takes a long time to open a shared disk or folder on a computer running Windows 95, 98, or Me

Description: This is a different problem than My Network Places taking a long time to open <slowbrowse02.htm>. This problem occurs after you double click a shared disk or folder.
Possible Solutions:
Disable searching for scheduled tasks
This Microsoft Knowledge Base article <http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us; Q245800> describes a bug in Windows 2000 Professional that might also exist in Windows XP. Disable searching for scheduled tasks by deleting this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Explorer\RemoteComputer\NameSpace\
{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}
· Delete stored network passwords
1. Click Control Panel | User Accounts.
2. Click your user name.
3. Click Manage my network passwords.
4. Click each entry and click Remove

We Are Using Windows 2003 Server,But We Are Not Able To Access Server From Win XP & Win 98 Clients & Also We Are Not Able To Access Clients From Win 2003 Server. Please Help.


You must be on same domain/workgroup to see it and the computers should have an account on the server.
If not you MUST have a user account you are using on the server.
You can try to connect using the IP address of the server as such:
Go to start.run then type \\Serverip\c$ it should then ask for credentials
If not then your server is not on the network properly and you should contact a consultant in your area to configure the server

I have two different domains that are connected via VPN connection through two routers. I can ping from domain to domain via IP address on clients and servers. However I can only do a net view command on...


So you verified ICMP traffic isn't blocked and it appears the servers allow the netBios traffic to pass.

On the client machine, check to make sure the windows print and file sharing is installed and the machine isn't blocking netBios traffic.

Make sure TCP ports 137,139, and 445 are open on the xp machine and any devices in between.

It's acting like the TCP data is being blocked by the client machine.

This is an excerpt from a MS Technet page for error 53:
Resolutions: 1) if it is domain environment, check your WINS; 2) if it is peer-to-peer workgroup, enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP; 3) make sure the machine is running; 4) make sure file and Printer Share enabled on remote computer; 5) make sure client for ms networks is enabled on local computer; 6) make sure you type the correct name. 7) Make sure no firewall running or any security setting.
Pay close attention to #s 4 and 5 - I suspect XP pro might not be open enough.

Windows Vista home + Windows XP Professional Networking issue


Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.

Whats the operating system of your server?

Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.

I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.

I would check with Microsofts website on that.
