Strange networking between XP ME
Posted on 2006-07-04
I have a home user, 2 machines, XP Home SP1 and WinME, the XP had a virus, removed with no major problem, then the LJ4L died, she replaced it with a newer LJ1320, she can print and everything else, but for some strange reasons, the ME can no longer see the XP shared files/printer, I can ping from ME to XP and XP to ME, zonealarm is both opened for both machines 188.8.131.52-192.168.0.250, I have also disabled both firewalls.
The XP can see shared files on the ME, just not the other way round, if I try to connect by network name \\AlexXP from WinME, it just said resource not found.
So far I have removed NetBUEI, Windows Networking, File and printing on both machines and reinstalled them, same problem, the machine is cleaned (checked by Bitdefender, Avast and Panda, removed afterward), and they just have ZoneAlarm and AVG on them, and as said earlier, ZoneAlarm were first disabled and then shutdown with same result.
Anyone could suggest something to head for ?
