Wireless networking between XP an Vista
G'Day everyone, I am sorry if this subject has been discussed previously, I
am not very computer literate so plese bear with me.
I have a laptop running Xp and a desktop running vista. They are both
connected to the internet via wireless router.
I have tryed to set up file and print sharing. After looking through these
discussions I found a few tips like changing the group name in xp to
'workgroup' instead of MSHOME, this worked as far as I can now see and
explore the laptop shared folder from my desktop but I can not see my desktop
from my network places from my laptop. I have activated file and print
sharing with passwork protection off on the vista machine but no luck as
yet.. any help would be greatly appreciated.. cheers, Luke...

Re: Wireless networking between XP an Vista
Hello Luke,

Do you have a personal firewall such as Windows Live OneCare, Norton, or
ZoneAlarm installed on any of the machines? If so, you need to make sure you
have it properly configured. An improperly configured firewall can block
file and printer sharing.
