My laptop running Vista business cannot see my XP desktop
I have a desktop computer running XP Pro SP2 and a laptop running Vista
Business. The desktop is connected via ethernet to a Linksys 4 port
router/WAP and the laptop connects thru the wireless network. Everything was
working fine until yesterday when I discovered I could not print from the
laptop to the printer connected to the desktop (I was able to last week). I
now find that I can see the laptop from the desktop but I can't see the
desktop or printers from the laptop. I suspect an update to either Vista or
XP has caused this as I haven't made any configuration changes recently.

I have followed the Knowledge Base article that deals with this issue but it
has not resolved the problem. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

There is an odd issue with an IE update (yes, Internet Explorer), which has been
mentioned rarely in connection with Windows Networking issues.

If that doesn't help, I'd try to diagnose the problem with logs from "browstat
status", "ipconfig /all", "net config server", and "net config workstation",
from each computer. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow
instructions precisely (download browstat!) (note how to use the Vista command
window):

Browstat returned nothing at all.

Where do I go from here? I hope you can help.

Did you run browstat from a command window as an administrator?

Hi Chuck,

1. I am running browstat in a command window as an administrator. If I
simply type browstat it shows me the list of options but browstat status just
returns me to C:\>
2. How do I know if the nvidia firewall is running? I've looked in the
usuall places and can't find anything. I tried disabling power management as
suggested in one of the posts but it made no difference.
3. I've removed IVP6 from the stack.

Still no further with this. Anymore suggestions?

The nVidia firewall is being discussed in several forums. Here's my article,
with links to other web sites.

If that fails to help, let's enumerate the symptoms. This would be a lot more
useful with 3 computers, but if you only have 2, we'll have to try it as is.

Take the following code (everything INSIDE the "#####" lines). Please DO NOT
include ANY portion of the "#####" lines. (Please verify computer names and ip
addresses).


1. Open Notepad.
2. Highlight then Copy the code (Ctrl-C), precisely as it is presented, and
Paste (Ctrl-V) into Notepad.
3. Examine the contents of Notepad. Is the text, as copied, readable (similar
in format to the Base Code)? It won't run well, if it's not easily readable.
4. If the text is not easily read, then:
* Stretch the sides of the Notepad window. If this improves things,
then continue with Step 5.
* Close Notepad, as is (do not bother to save anything).
* Open Notepad.
* Under Format, reverse the setting for Word Wrap. If it is unchecked,
check it. If checked, uncheck it.
* Return to Step 2.

5. Verify, and correct, names and addresses if necessary.
6. Save the Notepad file as "cdiag.cmd", as type "All Files", into the root
folder "C:\".
7. Run it by Start - Run - "c:\cdiag".
8. Wait patiently.
9. When Notepad opens up displaying c:\cdiag.txt, first check Format and
ensure that Word Wrap is NOT checked! Then, copy the entire contents (Ctrl-A
Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) into your next post.


Do this from all computers, please, with all computers powered up and online.

Re: My laptop running Vista business cannot see my XP desktop
Hi Chuck,

Thanks or your advice. A friend who has an identical laptop visited my on
the weekend ad he was able to connect to my desktop without any problem which
led me to believe that something had corrupted in my Vista OS. I restored
from an image I took a few months ago and I'm back to being able to see my
desktop shared folders and printers attached to it.

However, I have discovered 2 other issues that I'd like your thoughts on.

1. Vista network map now shows the desktop but can't place it on the map
even though the netowrk location is "Private"
2. When I try to turn off password protected sharing in the network and
sharing centre and chose Apply, it still shows password protected sharing as
on. I have disabled the blank password option in the security policy but
still can't turn it off.

Thanks in advance

Chris

Hello again Chuck,

My solution turned out to be a temporary fix. The problem returned a day
later but I had to go on a business trip the next day so didn't get to do
anything until I got back yesterday. I've run cdiag on each of the machines
and the results are shown below.

End diagnosis for ARISTOTLE

I hope this gives you some clues as to what's going on. Someone suggested
the problem was that the Desktop and the laptop are on different subnets and
Vista security blocks communications between different subnets. Is this the
case?

Chris,

With Descartes having 192.168.200.101, and Aristotle 192.168.200.102, I don't
see a subnetting problem. I do see a couple concerns.

The nVidia nForce is a known problem, here.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/02/hidden-personal-firewall-nvidia-nforce.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/0...ia-nforce.html

And IPV6 is something that we don't have right, yet. Get rid of that, please.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/05/fix-network-problems-but-clean-up.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...-clean-up.html

When you ran browstat on Aristotle, were you running the command window as an
administrator?

Read the nVidia post, and remove IPV6. Then rerun CDiag on both computers, and
we'll see if there's any improvement.
