SP2 cant find home network
Posted on 2004-11-24
I have a three node home network. 98SE, XP Pro SP1, and XP Pro SP2. They all have the same workgroup name. The 98SE and the SP1 are able to see each other on the workgroup. SP2 will not see that it can connect to the Workgroup even after verifying that the workgroup name is correct and that the IP address is on the same gateway and subnet.
I know that no sane person is going to SP2 yet. Well I did reluctantly since I could not get a legal copy of XP Pro SP1, and would rather not format my primary drive for the fourth time in the past week to go back to Home SP1.
When I "View the Workgroup computers" I get
"(Workgroup name) is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the network administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The list of servers for this Workgroup is not currently available."
Any help will be appriciated.
