Thanks very much for your reply Günter.
Clicking on Control Panel >System >Properties shows
'Full computer name' winpro
and Workgroup LANET
nbstat -n from winpro command prompt
gives an error message
"Failed to access NBT driver"
smbtree gives a full screen of shares from other computers
but nothing from winpro. The shares list other windows 98 computers.
smbclient -L winpro -U<username>%<password>
gives a '>' prompt that I can't do anything with
except to re-enter my password.
I then get
"session request to WINPRO failed (Not listening on called name)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Not listening on called name)"
smbclient -L winpro -U<username>
session request to WINPRO failed (Not listening on called name)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Not listening on called name)
My username and password is the same on both machines.
The WXP computer has Service Pack 1 and 2.
I can connect to shares on other machines from winpro.
