Set up workgroup between Win XP-2k computer
Posted on 2006-04-08
I have a new desktop running XP pro; and I'd like to quickly transfer files from my old laptop, running Win 2k. Both machines are connected to a home network router. I gave each computer the same workgroup name, but they don't show up on eachother's "Network Places"
On the 2k machine, if I click the workgroup name, it will only display itself (the 2k machine)
On the XP machine, I get an error window: "[workgroup name] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.
