Inaccessible Win XP machine
Posted on 2006-11-19
I have 3 machines which are connected to a workgroup. Two are up-to-date XP machines, the other is an ME machine. I have a shared folder on the ME machine called "shareable" which can be accessed from the first XP machine just fine. However, I tried to create a shared folder on the first XP machine, but any attempts to access it from either the second XP machine or the ME machine fail. I can browse to the first XP machine in the Network Places of the ME machine, but when I double-click the XP machine, I get the message "Windows cannot find the computer share name. Make sure the computer share name is valid and you are connected to the network and try again". All three computers can access the internet perfectly fine, so all three are definitely connected to the network. Can anyone offer any suggestions for how I might troubleshoot this?
