Connectivity between 2000 server and 2000 professional
Posted on 2003-03-19
I have a server at home running Windows 2000 Server, Service Pack 3 and I have a new Dell laptop running Windows 2000 Professional. I also have a Mac running OS 9.2.
The Mac can see the Server and share files and print to the network printer(s) just fine.
Nothing I do can get the Server and Professional laptop to see each other.
I've set up new shares. I've shared the entire C: drive on both. I thought you could just put the two systems on an ethernet network and they would automatically at least see each other. When I go to My Network Places on either system, they don't come up with each other. On the Server, Computers Near Me finds itself (the Server). On the Professional laptop, Computers Near Me finds nothing, not even itself.
