Windows Home Network Problems
Posted on 2009-12-22
I have an XP Pro Box, a Vista Home Premium Box and a Win 7 Pro box.
In the XP box, when I look under my Microsoft Windows Network I see all three pcs.
I can open shared files and folders on the Vista Box but not on the 7 box since I've set up no shares there yet.
In the Vista Box, in the Network tab, I see only the Vista box and the Win 7 Box
In the Netwok tab of the 7 box I only see the 7 box. However, when I look at the network map on the 7 box I do see the Vista box and there is a ? where, seemingly, the XP box would be.
I cannot log into the Vista box from there however.
I am running Kaspersky Firewall on all 3 boxes, but that doesn't seem relevant in this case since I can open shares from the XP box.
All 3 pcs are on the same workgroup.
So, why can't I see the XP box from vista? Why can't I see either from the 7 box.
