Been fighting with a new 'puter all afternoon .. have connected using the parellel ports .. Win2KPro machine to Win98 laptop ..

Can get a connection from user (laptop) to host (Win2kPro), but it's an 'unauthenticated user' and disconnects after about 30 seconds. Anybody had success getting this kind of set-up to work? Know it can be done as a 'typical' network, as I've had it set up as a wireless network .. but should also work on the direct connection ..

Maybe I am totally off base here but I think you have to have a special cable for this? A regular printer cable will not work I dont think.

OH, I know a good site on Networking!

I bet you can find some answers here. I used this when I had trouble getting my router to work. I bet it covers about the cable issue too.

Just a suggestion:

Try logging in on the host using your login/password. It might have something to do with the administration protection.

Good luck

BTW I use to have to use a null cable when connecting in the maner you describe. Now use router.

I had a win98 machine connected to my win2k machine and recall a similar problem.

Try this on the win2k machine:

Go to "My Computer" - "Control Panel" - "Users & Passwords"

Make sure the name of the laptop is there. If it isn't there hit the "Add" key and load that info. Hope this does it as I know how frustrating this stuff can be.
