xover connection win2k-win98se / pcanywhere
felix Oct-24-01 12:28 PM
Hi,
My apologies if this has already been adressed,but I didn't get any results when running a search on windows 2000 and windows 2k.
I have a win98 pc connected to a win2k pc using a xover cable.
I can ping from both machines, but that's it.
1. Can anyone tell me how to share disks on these two machines?
I dont know if this 2nd question is offtopic or not please let me know.
I use PCAnywhere regularly to dial into my work pc and would like to use that for remote control.
I have tried both the win98 and win2k as the host, and I always get "no connection"Any suggestions?
thanks

For sharing windows 98 resources, see http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/net2pc/intro.htm. Win 2K is similar… Start, Settings, Network and Dial-up connections… and share the drives with the Windows Explorer. You may have to install the NetBEUI protocol in addition to TCP/IP. The pcAnywhere host software has to be installed on the computers to connect with your remote pcAnywhere. I have not done it in a long time. pcAnywhere installations can be quite challenging… Larry

Super,
I had read that tutorial but was'nt sure it also applied to win2k. I'll try the setup with win98 as the host and win2k as the client.

many thanks
