I have an HP pavilion a250n running XP and a dual G4 running os 9.2.
We have cable broadband internet running through a D Link DI-604 router.
I want the two computers to talk to each other. I’ve set up a network bridge in XP, and run the network wizard, shared the hard drive of both computers and set sharing and permissions on the G4.
XP tries to connect to the mac, but can’t. I try to connect using appleshare and manually inputting the ip address of the XP box and I get nothing. Filesharing and Websharing are on and my username is authorized in the workgroup HOME. XP is set to access workgroup HOME.
When I click on “My Network Places” in XP, I get an option to connect to the router. It brings up a “username and password” dialog box, but nothing I try works. I get a 401 Unauthorized error in the browser.
What next? I feel like this should work… but I just can’t get them to see each other.
