NetBEUI error 733 in Windows 2000 Peer to Peer Network

NetBEUI error 733 in Windows 2000 Peer to Peer Network

NetBEUI error 733 in Windows 2000 Peer to Peer Network

I have a small Peer to Peer network on two Windows 2000 computers. The computers see each other just fine, and files can be traded between the two.

I have been trying to Enable Internet Connection sharing with no success because each time I start the modem I get an error that says:

NetBEUI reported error 733. Your computer and the remote computer could not agree on PPP control protocols.

This totally blows me away because neither Win2000 computer should be having any trouble using NetBEUI.

Any help on how to correct this error would be greatly appreciated.

RE: NetBEUI error 733 in Windows 2000 Peer to Peer Network

NetBEUI reported error 733. This error is because Microsoft does not allow netbuei for RAS.  Netbuei is also noroutable so you should avoid using it completly.  I belive though to solve your problem, you can choose which protocols to use for dial-up. Deselect netbeui and use tcp/ip only for dialup. also if this still gives you the error, remove netbuei and use ipx/spx(netbios).

Win 2kPro on both PC's....

Ok, I have this problem, this tutorial (http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/ics_2000) said to install NetBEUI only on the machine with the internet connection.... Ok, installed, rebooted PCs, dialed the net, then BOOM - NetBEUI error 733!
This is starting to annoy me....... anyone help?
I still cant access the net from other PC when I unintall NetBEUI anyway.......
