    Windows 3.11 Networking

    How do I share a folder in Windows 3.11? (How do I get the computer to show up on the network at all <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>)

    W3.11 can map drives to the Win95 machine's shared folders fine, but the Win95 and XP machines can't see the Win3.11 machine.

    On a related matter, I've installed NetBEUI on XP and W3.11 still can't see the XP box.

    I've re-installed the DOS network client and I noticed that it didn't have NetBEUI or TCP/IP installed - just NWlink. So now the 3.1 machine can see the XP box's shared folders. <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21> <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
