Turn on NetBT but netstat show Netbios over TCP/IP Disabled
Posted on 2004-10-21
I am trying to workgroup a W2K Pro laptop and an XP home edition desktop. Both machines can ping each other. Although I have added the W2K machine to the workgroup, it does not show up in the explorer interface to the workgroup.
I have tried to turn Netbios over TCP/IP on via the Network Properties interface, and even though Network Properties shows that it is on, netstat -a shows:
NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Disabled
Is there a way I can turn it on via the registry?
