File & Print Sharing Inwin '98 - What Am I Missing?


No Colour issues!! Is there anyway to use the printer with Windows 7, I am told there are no drivers available for Windows 7. I have a perfectly good functioning printer that will print both sides of a booklet automatically, yet for some unknown reason, Windows 8 has decided I need to MANUALLY take out My network setting in Win 98 is "NAT".

Look for pronounced scratches on the CD. I can see the windows xp machine but i cannot access it. Log off or reboot and the PCs should be able to see each other. Wind 8 has set me back years.

Access Windows 7 Share From Windows 98

I don't like ICS , so i go for a proxy on the serve machine to only allow my other pc access. I have exactly the same problem as James -- … on the windows7 machine I can see the Xp machine but when I try to connect I get an error message Print preview in Word shows the correct porientation.

I did as mentioned above in advance setting yet the xp machine is still asking ?? December 12, 2009 Tim Trine: These instructions did not help me, either-but I did find a fix.

I copied your answer to windows7forums.com. Windows 98 Connect To Network Share Re: beginner's printing issue James Gieske Jan 9, 2008 11:59 AM (in response to WoodyZ) Sometimes a reread of the original post helps. documents and or any word type document has been fairly straightforward also, again I do use google drive and docs for most of my work. After much mucking about Windows 7 sees both the shared drives on the XP box and the MAC and can access them.

At least that's how I got it to work. are located.

Windows 98 Connect To Network Share

The computers should be able to at least see the workgroup and itself if it has shares enabled. Reboot and login, retry printing; Make sure the printer was turned on before the computer was, or else the computer might not recognize it.

i have a few suggestions , first i would check (if you have one) that your firewall is disabled (just for testing not for ever ;)) make sure you do this After finding that solution, everything else worked. Check that all cables and wires are connected properly and tightly. I could hold the printed PDF, from the XP/Win7 OS's, up to the Win8 monitor and the colors are perfect but I can't get Win8 to produce a proper printed image

The Win 7 machine in network can't see the XP machine but can in full map but can't accesss files on XP machine. Even though I have followed these instructions I still can’t get them to see the shares, if I boot into XP (Dual boot machine) then no problem. On the XP PC Do Start/Run/regedit. For more information about permissions, see Windows Help and Support So, add to MY Friday fun.

Reply Jan (male) June 23, 2013 at 6:04 pm I have Lexmark X2600 series printer connected to laptop running windows 8. My solution was to buy and install a network printer running on Ethernet, it would have worked with wifi also, but I don't like wifi being on all the time. The Win 7 machine can print to my network printers just fine. It does this by running a limited DHCP server on the machine that is doing the sharing.

I have dual boot on the win 7 machine with win xp as second operating system and the same printer drivers work on both xp machines and the network printer works Check and make sure the attributes of the file itself is not set at Read-Only. Your instructions provided 95% of the solution. Otherwise, there might be a problem with your network.
