Can See Myself on Network Workgroup but no one else
Posted on 2004-11-15
We are on a basic peer to peer network at my business and no one else is having a problem seeing other computers in the workgroup. I have verified that netbios is enabled under TCP/IP, File & Print Sharing is installed (i uninstalled and re-installed), everything in that area looks the same as it does on the other workstations. I checked the local policy in admin. tools and everything looks fine. However, I can see myself (C on "comp. name", SharedDocs on "comp. name", MyDocuments on "comp. name", but I can't see anyone else belonging to that workgroup. I know the workgroup name is correct, the OS acts like it allowed me to be a part of that workgroup, but I can only see myself and no one else. I get the following error when trying to select view workgroup computers in my network places: "workgroup name" is not acessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource, contact the administrator........incorrect function. I even tried double clicking on C on "comp. name" so I could try and get into my C drive from my network places and it gave me an error about permissions too, even though I have shared my C drive. Please help.
