Win 98 cannot access vista shares
Hi,
I have have 4 computers on one network. Two of them are running XP Pro SP3,
1 is running Win 98SE and the other is running Vista X64 Home Premium SP2.
All of the PCs can see each other on the network. All of the PCs can access
each others shares except for the win98 machine. It can access the XPs but
cannot access the Vista. All of the PCs show up in Network Neighborhood, but
when I try to access the Vista machine I get a dialog box that prompts me to
enter network password.
"You must supply a password to make this connection."
"Resource \\Vista computer\IPC$ "
"Password _________________ "
I have same IDs set up on both the Win98 and Vista PCs. Turning off windows
firewall on the Vista machine was no help.
I think the problem lies in Vista's authentication but I really don't know.
I'm at my wit's end with this problem. I would appreiciate any help that is
offered.

Thanks,
WillyG

Re: Win 98 cannot access vista shares
Hi
Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
Firewall instructions.

Not a good networking combination. Hard to believe since they're
related networkable operating systems.
