    Networking with Win95 (XP)

    As you may have guessed from my previous posts I am upgrading from Win ME to XP Pro on my home machine. We also has a old Win 95 box, which we have networked to the Win ME computer. Has anyone found difficulties networking with Win XP and 95? What about internet connection sharing?

    Thanks

    Networking any older OS seems to cause problems for a lot of users, especially if you are adding XP to an existing network.

    Connection sharing shouldn't be a problem. In fact, that seems ok, it's accessing resources from XP to the older machines that seems to be the problem.

    Networking with XP and 95 should be a breeze - Xp will create a setup disk that will install the networking components you need to make it work.

    The most prevalent difficulty I have seen is that XP does not enable NetBEUI by defaul and installing it usually solves a host of weird problems.
