|Mixed Windows OS
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.
Resolutions: 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?.
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
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).
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.
Symptom: your peer network with one Win
98SE and some Win 2000 Pro systems on the LAN operates fines except the W98SE
Resolution: make sure the folder's name is shorter then 15 characters.
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.
