    XP Dialup to Win98 (WinXP)

    After installing WindowsXP on my home computer, I am unable to connect with other computers running Win98. I get a sign in dialog box, but not matter what user or password I try, the WIN98 computers refuse to accept the connection. All of the computers are configured to used TCP/IP and I have manually set different IP addresses. All of them are members of the same workgroup. Anyone have any suggestions.

    Have you turned OFF the firewall on the Windows XP machine that is ON by default?

    Is this the Pro or Home version?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Are you using ZoneAlarm or the likes on any of the machines?

    What hub or router are you using?

    Are you using netbeui on any of the machines?

    ZoneAlarm is not running on any of the machines. Nor is any other firewall type program. No hub or router is involved. I am trying to connect using modems and phone lines.
    I installed netbeui on the XP machine. It was already on the 98 machines. Installing netbeui did not help. Incidentally, the 98 machines can call each other with no problem. It is just the XP machine that cannot connect using a dialup connection. The XP machine can call my ISP and connect with the internet with no problem.
