PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows 98 SE and Windows XP pro
Problem Application Name & Version: File sharing between 2 computers
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Dell Dimension 400 and Dell optiplex sx270
Error Messages:None, but cannot get file sharing to work


Both systems connect to the internet just fine.  I then place the cat 5 connection between the 2 computers using the NIC cards.  I specify file sharing on both systems (for the C folders), and specify an IP address of 192.168.0.103 and 192.168.0.104 using network properties for the NIC card under TCP/IP for each computer.
After rebooting both machines, i cannot observe anything other than the local information under the network neighborhood or my network places.
I can ping from the new system (XP) out to the old system, but I cannot ping from the old system to the new one.
I must have missed a setting somewhere, probably on the win98 system, but even with much effort, I cannot figure this one out.  The win98 system does not have a cd-rw device, which would have made life much easier.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hi,

Make sure:

-both systems are part of the same workgroup
-you are logged into both systems using the same account username/password

Also check out my P2P Home Networking Checklist

Thanks for your reply.  Your p2p checklist was great.  My problem was a non-crossover cable conection, so I got pretty far down on your list.  However, works like a charm now.  Thanks again.
