Im trying to network 2 computers at home using crossover cables.
One is running XP Professional 'n the other 98SE.

I wont be able to share the internet coz theres just 1 NIC on this machine so it can be either used for internet or networking the 2 pcs.

I followed this link to network the 2 of them.
http://www.homenethelp.com/web/howto/net.asp
Since Im not going to use the net I'll have to put in static IP in both of them which I put as 192.168.10.100 on this machine and 192.168.10.101 on the other one and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0 in both the machines.

I also put them in the same workgroup and i also enabled NetBios over TCP/IP in Xp.Now the problem is that in 98SE in the Network Neighborhood I can see that machine itself but not XP and in My Network Places in XP there r no machines in the workgroup computers.

Also when I ping from 98SE to XP I get proper response but its not the same case vice versa.In 98SE when I type the command "net view" it only shows that computer in the workgroup.I've also disabled the firewall and checked the crossover cable thoroughly.

I face the same problem when I use the Network Setup Wizard in XP to set it up for networking.

One more thing I forgot to mention is that I havent installed any SP on XP.

Plz help.

Also I would appreciate if you can insert some links
to other Windows networking forums which u know.

Have you shared any drives, folders or printers on the XP machine?

Test 1
Can you ping from the w98 PC to the WXP PC?

Test 2
Can you ping from WXP to w98 PC?

Test 3 (Assuming both ping test are working)
From W98 PC, start, run, \\IPaddress of XP PC

Do you get anything from Test 3?

You may not need NETBEUI if you can modify the lmhosts
