Hi, nice looking site.
I just reinstalled WinXP on my new computer. Now I'm having problems with my network. On my Win98 computer, things are showing up in Network Neighborhood that haven't before. There are a whole bunch of diffrent computers that show up along with the 2 that are supposed to be there. A little bit ago, there were a lot showing up. They mostly have random numbers/letters (seemingly anways), but a few have names like "Bubba" "Dale" etc. Now only a few others are showing up. And when I try to access SharedDocs on Computer 1 (XP) from Computer 2 (98) it says Shared Docs is not accessible Access Denied. I've ran the network setup Computer 2, but not on Computer 1. Do you think if I ran network setup again on both machines that it would fix this? Any ideas other ideas on how to fix this problem? 01/lst%3f%26.dir=/My%2bPhotos/Pictures%2b1%26.src=ph%26.view=t Thats a picture of what Network Neighborhood looks like now. Everything seems to be working fine on my Windows XP computer.

have you tried to make ip lookup for this hosts?
Can you show us your network configuration?

Its very worring that you are seeing computer on in your net. neigh. which shouldnt be there.
I have no idea how your network is setup and what type of access other people or the Internet has to it, but I would definately double check everything and possibly check your 'gateway' machine for possible intrusions.

As far as accessing shares on Windows XP/2000/NT4 machines, this is a topic which I tend to cover at some point because I have found a lot of people do not understand how network sharing works with these operating systems.

In short, when you create a share on your XP box and you want a Win98 pc to access it, you MUST have an valid account on your XP machine for the user that is logged into the Win98 pc.

For example, I log on your Win98 pc as "Chris". For me to access the share you just created on your XP pc, you need to create a user account on the XP pc called "chris" and give it the same password I use to log onto the Win98 pc. This way, when I try to access the share you just created on your XP machine, I wont be asked for a login/password ! [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Hope the above helps.
