Specs: Windows XP
I’m running XP-Pro, and trying to Map Drive to Win95 Machine,

- Remote machine is: Win95 B
- MS Network Client
- No File/Print Share Enable (NOT an Option)
- No Doman

- The XP and Win95 machines are on the same network

- No File/Print Share Enable (NOT an Option)

If you can't enable file sharing then you will not be able to share anything on the 95 machine.............period.

I highly recommend you put 98 on that PC if you can. If you can't, then you're going to have to create a share on the XP computer and map to it from the 95 box.

Make sure your 95 computer has an IP in the same subnet as the XP computer and use the same subnet mask so they can communicate.

I guess I left out couple of things out of my question!

1-No File/Print Share Enable (NOT an Option)
2-I have over 200 Win95 machines
3-Mapping from Win95 to XP is not an issues, it’s the other way around!
4-I can build any machine win95, 98, 2000, XP, as long as gives me the capability to map to each win95 machines, and without installing software on the win95 boxes, or adding services, on enabling File/Print Share.

I hope this give you a clear understanding what I’m trying to do here!

Its still not clear.

You want to build ONE machine and then map a drive to 200
Win95 machines?

Like Curt R. said, if you can't enable file/print sharing on the
Win95 machine(s) then you can't map a drive to it.

XP will map to 95 fine, if you enable file/print sharing.
