    Networking with Windows3.11 (XP Pro)

    Yes, I know this is unusual, but I would like some help.

    I am trying to get my Pentium 100 running Windows 3.11 to see my XP Pro computer. At the moment I get an error when I try to connect the the shared folders (from within file manager) using the usual compnamesharedfoldername path.

    I can get the computer to see shared folders on the other computer running Win 95.

    Any suggestions will be most appreciated.

    Is NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled installed on the XP box?

    Installed the NetBEUI off the XP CD (under value add or some such folder - just as the readme.txt said) but...

    I still can't get the Win3.11 to see the XP box or vice versa (see this post for more details of what is and isn't working)
