ok got a question...
helping a friend network 2 pc's both win98se 20 gig hd's and 128 mb ram...
now here is the prob....set up network on both with 5 port lynsys hub and nic card in each ...both sys nic cards installed no prob...setup the network on each
client for microsoft
tcp/ip
nic card
ipx/spx
netbeui
file and print sharing
shared drive C on both

now the question is ....shouldn't this setup be able to share and see file of host and client without setting up for a internet share?

they can see themselves but cannot get it to see the other ....what am I missing here?.....HELP!!!...lol

added note: checked cables with tester and are ok...cables are in ports 1 and 2 on the hub with the host one the #1 and client on #2

Make sure that the workgroup name is the same on both machines.
Did you specify ip addresses for both machines??
Can you see the other computer at all by going through start-->>Find-->>Computer and typing in the name of the other computer???
And lastly, did you 'actually ' go into each computer and share something on the hard drive, or did you just turn on file and printer sharing?
