Office sharing
I have just added a new pc with vista. My other 2 pcs are running XP & are
networked just fine. I have been unable to "see" either pc from vista or
"see" vista from either pc. I have followed all instructions and set all
settings to allow networking. I am so upset that I am ready to take this pc
back and buy an older one with XP. Can anyone help before I make a trip back
to the store.

RE: Office sharing
I'm sorry for the trouble you're experiencing. A few others have experienced
the same thing, but have found that adjusting firewall settings seem to solve
the problem. If you're running OneCare specifically, Tom (in another thread)
found the following to work:

Windows Live OneCare ->
Change OneCare Settinge ->
Firewall connection tool ->
Tick relevant options (Network discovery, file and print settings,
etc) ->
OK ->
Advanced Settings ->
Change file sharing from 'Do not share files and printers" ->
OK ->
OK

Please try modifying any firewall settings and let us know if that doesn't
work.

Here are a couple of links that should solve your problem. Run kb922120 on
the XP machines and change your Vista machine's workgroup to match the XP's.

Good luck,
