I'm in my first week of a love/hate relationship with Vista and have seen
bits of my issue in several posts, but nothing that seems to match totally...
I have one Vista machine in one location that successfully sees a Windows
2000 machine in the same workgroup.
However, in another location I have a Vista machine that:
Connects to the network
Gets a DHCP address from the router
Is in the same workgroup as the other computers
Can map a printer that's shared on the XP Pro machine
Can ping the other XP Pro machines in the workgroup
Does NOT see the XP machines when I go to the Network & Sharing Center
Can NOT be opened by one of the XP's, even though it can be seen
It sounds like a rights issue, but I'm having a bit of a struggle finding my
way through this new OS. Can anybody lay out a trail of breadcrumbs for me?
