On macOS I have enabled "File Sharing" in the "Sharing" section of the "System Preferences" application. It says "File Sharing: On" and "Other users can access shared folders on this computer, and administrators all volumes, at smb://192.168.1.100".
Under "Options..." I have enabled "Share files and folders using SMB", and I have enabled "Windows Sharing" for my account.
One folder is listed under "Shared Folders": my account's "Public" folder. When selected, these users and permissions are listed under "Users":
- Me: Read & Writer
- Staff: Read Only
- Everyone: Read Only
In the "Network" settings, under "WINS", the "NetBIOS Name" setting is set to "MACBOOKPRO-0A79" and the "Workgroup" settings is set to "WORKGROUP".
Finally, the "Firewall" under "Security & Privacy" is "Off".
(On Windows 10 Professional I can access the shared folder and volumes, by browsing to
\\macbookpro-0a97, and entering credentials that match the credentials of my account on my Mac.)
On Windows 98 SE, when starting the computer, in the "Enter Network Password", I enter credentials that match the credentials of my account on my Mac. The "Network" configuration (found in the "Control Panel"), lists the following installed components (among others):
- Client for Microsoft Networks
- Intel 8255x-based PCI Ethernet Adapter (10/100)
- TCP/IP (bound to the ethernet adapter)
- File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks
"TCP/IP" is configured to "obtain an IP address automatically", and the computer is connected physically to the same router that the Mac is connected to wirelessly. They are in the same subnet, and can ping each other.
For "File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks", I have set "Browse Master" to "Enabled".
Under the "Identification" tab of the "Network" configuration, the "Workgroup" setting is set to "WORKGROUP".
net view on the "MS-DOS Prompt" gives the following output:
Servers available in workgroup WORKGROUP Server name Remark ---------------------------------------- \\INTELLISTATION IBM IntelliStation E Pro 6893-810 \\MACBOOKPRO-0A79 Michiel's MacBook Pro The command was completed successfully.
The Mac is visible in the "Network Neighbourhood", but when I double-click it, I get the following error:
\Macbookpro-0a97 is not accessible. The computer or share name could not be found. Make sure you typed it correctly, and try again.
Also, when I use the "Find: Computer" option from the Start menu ("Start", "Find", "Computer...") and I type "MacBookPro-0a79" in the "Named:" field, the following record is displayed:
- Name: MacBook Pro-0a79
- Location: Network Neighbourhood
- Comment: Michiel's MacBook Pro
Double-clicking this record gives the exact same error as double-clicking the computer in Network Neighbourhood.
Right-clicking it and selecting "Properties", gives the following warning:
The server \Macbookpro-0a97 could not be found on the network.
After that, the properties applet opens, but it shows no meaningful information.
How can I actually access data on the Mac from Windows 98 SE?
