    I have a situation where I am trying to share resources
    between a Window 98SE machine and a Windows XP machine
    via a TCP/IP protocol. The two machines are connected
    via a Belkin 4 port router which has NAT enabled and DHCP
    disabled. Both machines are on the same subnet
    ( yet I am unable to access the WinXP
    machine's resources from the Win98 machine. In addition,
    pinging the ip address of the WinXP machine only results
    in a 'Request timed out' message. What's more
    interesting is that the Win98 machine is identifed in my
    My Network Places / View workgroup computers and I am
    able to access its resources from the WinXP machine. I
    have TCP/IP protocols on both machines. The NetBEUI
    protocol is installed on the Win98 machine and NetBIOS
    enabled over TCP/IP on the WinXP machine. Can someone
    PLEASE help.

    Turn off the XP built-in firewall if you have not done so already.
