  1. query as asked by others and me too:

    i networked my system running windows 2000 with another running windows
    98SE,but i can not access any resource on the windows 2000 from the windows
    98se but can do it vice versa easily.The system asks my to supply a password
    for the resource which i did not set.

    Thanks for quick response.

    On the 2000 pc access the Properties of the shared drive and Add the
    "allowed" username to the list. The name must match whatever name is being
    used on the 98SE pc. That "name" doesn't seem to have to actually have a
    login account on the 2000 pc.

    Just went thru this bs myself with four 98SE pcs, one 2000 and one XP-Pro.
    Had to add five names for the logins on the other pcs before 2000 would
    allow access. Note - the Everyone in the "list" on the 2000 pc doesn't seem
    to work as expected.

  4. Is it asking for the IPC$ password? If so, Windows 2000 is trying to
    validate the user name which wants to access its shared files. The
    solution is to create a user account on the Windows 2000 machine with
    the same user name and password that you use to log onto Windows 98.

    I found you don't have to create an account on the 2000 pc, just add the
    name the 98 pc is using to list of Allowed users can access under shares

  7. In my experience, you can only add a user to the permissions for a
    Windows 2000 share if that user already has an account on the Windows
    2000 PC. I don't see a way to add an unknown user to the permissions.
    If you've found a way to do that, "pjp", please tell us how.

    To give permission to a known user, you can either:

    1. Add that user's account.


    2. Add the "Everyone" group, which includes all known users.

    I just went into Add under Properties/Permissions for the share and type in
    the name as best can remember. Can't check right now as took 2000 off the
    system it was on but definitely never created any user account(s) except the
    first and only one created when installing 2000. All the 98 pcs have diff
    user logins (basically mine, wife's and kids each have own pc and each uses
    their own name for login) so it wasn't just one common name added, e.g. I
    specifically remember entering each name without creating any user account.
