XP Network
summerscales1 Jul-07-02 10:16 AM
Hi Guys, this question has possibly been answered previously but i can't find it in the FAQ.
I have 4 computers running XP, connected through a switch. Cabling is testing fine.
The PC that has the internet connection sees itself only, the other 3 see all 4 and can see the files & C drive on each other but on attempting to access internet pc it tells me that the network path is not found.
Full error message is:
\\Linda is not accessible.You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The network path was not found.

Help quickly please.

XP does not support NetBeui. You have to add it to your network. I think it is in the value add folder of your XP installation disk. Once you add the Netbeui protocol, you should be able to search for computers by using the name Linda...

If you want to add NetBEUI, the instructions are at http://duxcw.com/faq/network/xpnetbeui.htm. I have found that adding NetBEUI in a network comprised of Windows XP and 9x/Me computers causes problems. Maybe that is why Microsoft removed it from the normal install options.

When sharing an Internet connection with Windows XP/2000/98 SE/Me, the TCP/IP Properties on the other computers should be set to get their IP addresses automatically from the Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) hostís DHCP (http://duxcw.com/faq/network/dhcp.htm) server, which is part of ICS. Also, the XP firewall should be disabled (http://duxcw.com/faq/win/xp/firewall.htm) on the clients. Larry
