An unknown network password is asked for when trying to browse the windows 7 machine from a win98 peer.

The resource requiring the password is shown to be \\machine_name\IPC$

Tried using net use commands with similar results.

Same username and passwords used on both machines. Same workgroup joined. Can ping IP addresses both ways.
