    Accessing shared folder on windows 95 from Windows Vista Home Basi

    Hi all,

    There's a problem an accessing shared folders on windows 95 or windows 98
    with Windows Vista Home Basic. If shared folder has a password (read
    only/full access password) then accessing to that folder from a Windows Vista
    Home Basic machine asking username and password. In Windows 95 or 98 only
    password to define (username cannot definable)

    From Windows XP machine accessing that folder,
    username: Windows95MachineName\Guest (not editable)
    password: whateverpassword
    there's not a problem about accessing but same thing cannot be applicable
    for Windows Vista Home Basic..

    Can anyone help me?
    (Sorry about bad english)

    Hmmm windows 95... its been a long time.
    I remember when I was networking them with XP, I had to add IPX network
    protocol on the XP machines so I could get the network to work...

    This was a long time ago.. so I am not 100% sure but see this screenshot I
    made for you, on how to add the IPX to XP
    I assume its the same with vista.. but I am not on vista at the moment so I
    can try it

    Please tell me if this works for you
