    Network problems 98SE and Vista

    hi all
    i have the same problem and the same dialog box that prompts me to
    enter network password in win98se:
    "You must supply a password to make this connection."
    "Resource \\Vista computer\IPC$ "
    "Password _________________ "

    as posted here sometimes ago:

    Re: Network problems 98SE and Vista

    update-
    i choose the same user name & password for vista & win98 (i had none in 98)
    now in win98 i can see vista and main shared folders (public & users)
    BUT...when i try to open them it takes 5-4 min. during this time the 98 pc "freezes"
    [i've no problem at all access winxp, win7 shared folders in win98 pc ] .
    i tried to :
    -disable AV and firewalls on win vista & 98
    -i changed network card options
    - i created shared folders in different places on vista c:\
    NONE helped
    ANY IDEA why it takes 4-5 min to open the vista shared folders in win98 pc?
    thanks!

    Windows 98 Is an Old Operating system and may not have been designed to Handle Shared Folders so that may be the Wait Have you tried Changing the IP Address of the Vista and 98 Machine?

    Many Thanks,
    Josh

    still one problem remain -why it takes 4-5 min to open the vista shared folders in win98 pc?
    i found something about it:
    Netorking with Vista - microsoft.public.win98.networking | Google Groups
    please friends read what the member "Paulincambridge wrote on 3 sep 2007:
    This all started working after I tried the Windows Locator change on
    the RPC Service
    mentioned in some other threads, hope this might help
    anyone else
    Does anyone knows what he meant ? OR anyone can think of other solution/s?
    Thanks!
    p.s -here is how my network looks like in WIN7
