Can't browse to my XP computer
Posted on 2008-10-16
Embarassingly, I can't figure out why users cannot browse to my computer. Running XP SP 2 on an AD Domain. I just want to share some files and was testing out a link to \\188.8.131.52\share and I couldn't even get to it myself. (obviously, not a real IP)
Say my hostname is 123ME. If I do a c:\net view I can see hundreds of machines in the domain, but not mine.
On another computer, on the same Windows network, same subnet, same login name and password - I cannot browse to my target computer.
I've checked services - comptuer browser and server are both running.
Permissions on the shared folder is domain\users RWM.
If I type "net share" I see share name "shared" and resource "c:\shared."
