  • networking help

    ok..two PC's......one running 2K which is hardwired into my router, XP shares the internet connection via wireless. I want them to talk......at some point, i'd like to move all my 2K files and settings over to my xp comp so i can reinstall the OS on the other one.

    help?

          Make sure both are on the same IP subnet...........

          Create/join a workgroup on one.........Then join that workgroup from the other............

          Make sure the directories you want to copy to/from are shared.........Make sure that both PC's have file/printer sharing enabled (Not sure this is necessary with 2K or XP)

            Both Win2K and XP have a default share on the c drive, so usually if you have rights, you can map to the other. The path usually looks something like this –

            \\computername\C$

            On one of the machines go to Start - Run and drop in that info to see what if finds….

              Upgrade to Pro......... B)

              I've never seen Home so I don't know if you even have the capability of joining a workgroup...........You can try browsing the ip addy of the 2K machine

                      Try setting up a shareed folder on the XP machine. Make sure to add the 2K username as a user of that shared folder.


                      The go through My network neighborhood and navigate to the folder.

                        Don't bother with NETBEUI.

                        Just make sure you have folders shared over the network



                        And for the love of god, don't share the root C: on a wireless network.

                          Yes.

                          It's on the XP Home CD under VALUE something something. You need to copy the files to your harddrive per the README file.

                          Home sucks for networking. Sometimes that is the easiest thing.
