Vista can not see XP
Hi

I need some help with networking Vista and XP. Hopefully someone from this
forum can help me.

I. Problem:
=======
I am not able to access the Dell XP computer from the HP Vista desktop. View
full map from Vista shows both the Dell XP and HP Vista desktops. However, I
can not access the Dell XP desktop.

From the Dell XP desktop, I am able to access the HP Vista Public folder.


II. Background information on HP Vista
=========================
1. Network and Sharing Center info:
Network discovery: on
File sharing: on
Public folder sharing: on
Printer sharing: on
Media sharing: off

2. Wokrgroup on HP Vista: WORKGROUP (same as the XP)

3. Firewall info on HP Vista:
Both Windows and Norton firewalls are on.
I have tried turning off each one at a time to test.
I have also tried turning off both for testing.
None worked. I was still not able to access the Dell XP

4. NetBT (NetBios over TCP/IP)
I tried Enable, Disable and Default.
I saw different results from browstat as a result of different settings.
I need more information and suggestion here.
I tried setting both Vista and XP to have the same settings.


III. Background information on Dell XP
========================
1. Local Area Connection 2 Properties, the followings are checked:
File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
Link-Layer Topology Discovery Responder (I downloaded the LLTD)

2. Wokrgroup on Dell XP: WORKGROUP (same on Vista)

3. Firewall info on Dell XP:
Windows firewall is on.
I had McAfee Virus scan, but uninstalled it.

4. NetBT (NetBios over TCP/IP)
I tried Enable, Disable and Default.
I saw different results from browstat as a result of different settings.
I need more information and suggestion here.
I tried setting both Vista and XP to have the same settings.

Thank you in advance for any help. I have spent the last couple of days
trying to figure this out.
I viewed many posts on this forum and read PChuck's Network page (lots of
good info. Thanks).
All of them seem a bit different from the problem I am seeing.
I hope someone can help.

Thank you.

Re: Vista can not see XP
Hi Bob,

Thanks for the suggestion, but it's not the XP that's not seeing the Vista.
It's the Vista that can not access the XP.

Re: Vista can not see XP
Make sure that in the XP, file andprinter sharing is allowed.
Is McAfee a full suite; if it is, check that LAN or file sharing is allowed
in its firewall exceptions.

Try this:
Also, run the XP’s Home or Small Office Network File and Printer Sharing
Wizard, even if you had an XP Network set up prior to adding a Vista computer
to it(redoing the Wizard seems to work for XP machines!).

In “My Network Places”: “Set up a Home or Small Office Network”
OR under Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard > Allow File
and Printer Sharing.

RE: Vista can not see XP
We encountered this same problem in our household only days ago. For us, the
fix was as simple as changing the Workgroup name on the new Vista laptop.

You've already confirmed that "WORKGROUP" is the name in use on both
machines; it may be foolish to suggest this, but are you certain that YOUR
network doesn't have a different name? "WORKGROUP" is the default network
name used by Vista--if yours is different, "WORKGROUP" would need to be
changed to match the name of your network, at which point the two will be
able to "talk to" each other.

Could someone have simply typed "WORKGROUP" on the host computer as the
network name, or was that the name of your home network all along prior to
the purchase of this new computer?

Re: Vista can not see XP
Hi Mike,

Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. I had already run the Network
Setup Wizard once, and just ran it again. It's not working. I also double
checked that the computers are on the same workgroup (WORKGROUP). You can see
that on my initial post.

From the XP machine, I am able to access the Public folder on Vista.

From the Vista machine, Network Map shows both the Vista and the XP
machines, along with the Switch, Gateway and Internet. However, I am not able
to access the XP machine. Nothing happen when clicking on the XP machine
icon. The Network folder also does NOT show the XP.

I am really puzzled!
