Unable to connect to network on a peer-to-peer network.
Posted on 2004-11-04
I just recently set up a brand new Dell desktop computer (Computer A) with installed NIC card. I have configured it to access the MSHOME workgroup, just like the other 2 computers. Computer A is visible but unaccessible from the other computers. Computer A says it cannot connect to the network, permissions may not be set correctly, etc. (the generic MS error message). This is a peer-to-peer network and the NIC lights flashes when trying to connect. There are no errors, conflicts, etc. related to the network card or drivers. What might be the problem and how can I remedy this?
P.S. The computer is running Norton Internet Security 2004. Are there settings in there I need to look for and if so, where at?
