Are you running a DCC (Direct cable connection) or a router setup? Maybe a USB to USB connection? Tell us more.
I have a desktop running 98SE and a laptop running XP. I attempted to creat a file/print sharing network using checklists that I've found on other sites. Everything appears to be set up properly. So here's the problem. If my XP machine (laptop) is off, the 98SE machine (desktop) can access the workgroup (obviously, the laptop files are not available because it's off). As soon as I turn on the laptop, the desktop cannot do anything on the network. There's a "Unable to browse network...The network is not accessible" message. So as you can imagine, I can never even see the laptop on the desktop. For the laptop, I can always see the desktop, but as soon as I try to access the shared files, I get a "[drive] is not accessible...you might not have permission...network path not found" message. Does anybody have any idea what could fix this? Thanks for any help.
