  • Can't access one computer in network

    Hello
    I can see all three systems on my home network, but I can only access 2 of them.
    NetBios is over TCP/IP at this time.
    Cleint for MS is being used.


    On Computer #1 -Win XP Pro Media , it reads Ethernet Area Local Connection
    I see all 3 systems
    I can access 1 & 3
    I can not access # 2 what ever I do it seems.
    IP 192.168.1.100
    Sub Neet 255.255.255.0
    Gateway 192.168.1.1

    On Computer #2 -Win XP Pro it reads Ethernet Bridge (Network Bridge)3:
    I can see all 3 systems
    I can access all 3 systems.
    IP 19.2.168.1.101
    Sub net 255.255.255.0
    Gateway 192.168.1.1.



    On Computer #3 Win 98SE

    I can after logging off and logging back on, see all 3 systems and access them.

    HUmMMM

    You're telling that you can see the 3 systems on every system, butt you can't access?? Access=Share?
    XP SP2??
    If you have XP sp2 then win98 will be very difficult to access on XP resources.

      Network problems

      I have since disconnected teh Win98se unit.
      I now hae a WinXP Pro and a WinXP Media.
      The pro can see both and accessess both.
      The Media can not access the Pro?

      At this time, the media has a bridge??

      They both have 2 adapters. THe media has a Local area connection at 100 mbps and a 1394 connection at 400 mbps.

      The Pro has a local area connection at 100 mbps and a 1394 connection at 400 mbps.

      All are shown in the tool bars.

      Can you tell me how to start from scratch and do it correctly?

        So you do not have SP2 on XP!

        1394 are Firewire adapter forget it!
        The other 100mbps is ethernet.
        You can see every PC on the network?
        Do you have workgroup?
        The same workgroup should be defiened on the 3 PC's.
        You should have the same subnet.
        Now you should be able to see every machine.
        Try net view on the MS Dos comand line.
        You should have file and printers share activated.
        You need create shares.
        Disable firewall or configure it properly for connection.
        Forget the bridge connection because that connection should only appear in ICS connections.
        You're ready to go.

          what happens when the window 98 machine turning on ?

          does it goes directly to desktop? or does it "stop" in the client for Microsoft network logon screen?

          if it goes directly to desktop then it does not get in to Microsoft network and thus can not connect or share resources with other machines.

          when you log off and then log on back you actually connect to Microsoft network and now you can see or share resources.
          Good Luck

            Network problems

            SP2 IS on the new XP Media
            SP1 IS on the older XP PRO

            1394 "forget it" what does that mean?

            Yes they are all MSHOME

            Firewalls are off, I deleted Norton

            How do I set it up to still stay connected and delete bridge??

            I still wonder if I don't need help in totally reseting both computers again.


            I removed the Win 98SE unit. Yes when it booted in went to desktop. You had to log off and then back on to see workgroups

            HELP!!!

              Did you delete Norton or uninstall it??
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.

                network problems

                I deleted Norton and then I checked the registry for anything I might see and deleted that also.

                I uninstalled CLient and then reinstalled it. Nothing changed what so ever.
                Xp Pro #2 still has the bridge.

                As far as accessing folders, nothing has changed. There has to be an answer!!

                  networking problems

                  What does "bridging" do? why do I have it?

                  I'm curtious why no one has suggested that I start from scratch and how to do that?

                  How about the various settings within the properties tabs? none of those require changes?

                  I remember doing that in ics in Win 98??

                    ALWAYS try to uninstall a progam. Delete it only as a last solution. There may be registry entries that have names that don't relate to the program you just killed.

                    Try removing the bridge and see what happens.

                      Bridging is about Internet Connection Sharing here, there is nothing to do about BRIDGE DEVICE. If you have one it's because you have ICS activated on the XP.

                      That's because that solution is the most radical. If you want to do this from scratch, just do it

                          You have XP SP2 on Media Center Edition
                          You have also XP SP1 PRO
                          And You have win98

                          First problem is SP2 have m ore security issues and will be very hard to share anything with systems like win98 or WIN MEDIA Center.
                          Try install sp2 on XP PRO and you will be fine with both XP box.

                          Second problem you need to disable your firewalls or anything that may block the traffice inside your network just for test.

                            Network problems

                            I will install SP2 on XP Pro today.
                            Win 98se has already been removed from the network, so that problem is gone.
                            All firewalls have been dealth with.

                            Any thing else?
                            Thank you

                              It is not a good think remove the firewall. I said that only for test connections!
                              Install SP2 on XP Pro and try everything you want and let us know
