Symptoms: You are running mixed OS in a domain
network. Two computers, one is win98 and another is w2k/XP, receive the
duplicate name message.
Resolution: check the WINS records.
SYMPTOMS: When attempting to map a network drive
in a mixed OS network, you may receive the following error message: System
error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found.
1) obtain the latest service pack
for NT 4. 2) In NT environment, the hostname may not match the NetBIOS name,
so check your WINS settings or hostname and NetBIOS name. 3) make sure you
type the correct hostname. 4) make the name resolution.
Q How to
connect a w98 workstation into a w2k domain?.
To access a domain network, 1) install client for MS networks; 2) in the
properties of Client for ms network, check Logon Windows NT Domain and type
your domain name in windows NT domain. You also need the domain logon id to
access the domain.
can access win98 but Win9x can't access
I am trying to setup a network at home, I got two machines at home, one is
windows 98 and on the other is Windows
2000 professional. I can see each machine on both. I can get into the windows
98 from windows 2000 pro but I can't get into the windows 2000 pro from win
98. Its says "its not accessible" with the red cross on the message.
A: Since your computers can see each other and win2000 can access win98, I
am assuming that you have setup the same workgroup and protocol on the both
machines. The problem is permission. You may have three options: 1) use the
same logon id on the both machines, 2) create a logon id for win9x on win
2000, 3) enable guest account in win 2000 (it is risky).
Q: Why win9x can't see
win2000 shared printer
W98 guys can see and access the XP Shared Documents folder. He asked me
to move his old HP LaserJet II to the new XP system. No problem, works
fine EXCEPT it doesn't show up as a shared device on the W98 boxes. There is
no ICS on XP. File and printer sharing is activated. I set the printer to
share on the XP box and it shows up as shared. (Hand on the icon). Any
ideas? I think I'm losing it!
A: If you can see the shared printer from XP but not win9x, it is because
the printer share name is longer than 12 characters.
see one of the shared folders
Symptom: your peer network with one Win
98SE and some Win 2000 Pro systems on the LAN operates fines except the W98SE
sees one W2kPro machine but not one of it's shared folders. Other W2kPro
machines can sees the folder. You have set necessary permissions, users,
Resolution: make sure the folder's
name is shorter then 15 characters.
cannot see a printer
Win 2000 can see the print name or folder name but win9x cannot because the
name of the printer or folder is too long (more than 12 characters).
By default, Win2000/XP disables NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) for selected
clients. In a peer-to-peer network without WINS, Win9x will be unable to
browse, locate, or create file and print share connections to a Windows 2000
computer with NetBIOS disabled. So, you must setup the Win2000/XP to uses
NetBIOS over TCP/IP to communicate with prior versions of Windows NT and other
clients, such as Microsoft Windows 95. Alternatively, you may want to add
NetBEUI on all workstations in the peer-to-peer network.
