Since installing SP2 for XP (home and pro) non of my windows 98 systems (15) can access any XP systems (5) and vice a versa.
The Workgroup is correct, Static IP’s are used throughout and I have no problem with the hardware set up as PING responds on all the systems.
Any help appreciated

hi,

i believe that the SP2 for Winxp enables the built firewall of XP on. it is here that may be causing your problem. try to cinfigure it in such a way that your 98 boxes would be able to communicate with your XPs.

How are you trying to access them ? Through file sharing ?

Most likely Jhun is right, its that *cough* excuse for a *cough* firewall..

thanks, forgot to mention all the Firewalls have been disabled, and I can only guess that it is a Security Permission issue...

your a funny guy sahirh... :lol:

anyway can you bker provide us more with details on how should they work?. you see as far as i know prior to your installation of SP2, it is quite hard to turn off the firewall of XP as it prevents you to disable it totally.

It is common in a workgroup environment for user's to have no password for their account. This can cause authentication problems between XP and 98 machines. Be sure that every user account has a password set.
