Windows 2000 machines can't view new Win XP Pro. But Win XP Pro can ping them, Why????
Posted on 2004-11-08
I am having a problem adding a new Windows XP Pro machine to an existing Windows 2000 network. Ther are five Windows 2000 PC's linked via a netgear hub. The Workgroup is set up as Workgroup.
I have checked the setting within the Win XP to match the rest of the network, i.e. chnaged the workgroup to workgroup, changed the IP to static and dynamic etc But nothing works, pulling my hair out now. I am able to ping any other Windows 2000 machine from the new Win XP Pro machine, but i cannot view or ping the new Win XP Pro from any of the Windows 2000. Why??????
Can anyone help me please????
