Re: problems setting up a home network
Well all of the DT, DT 1, DT 2, LT stuff got a bit confusing and Im not sure if I'm following your correctly here, but I'll give it a shot.
So over your network, you can see LT pc, but you cant access the drive? If that's a correct interpretation of the short novel that you wrote, then you have a permission problem.
Usually firewalls will block you completely and you wont even be able to see the PC because the firewall does not reflect the ping that is sent out.
I'm also assuming that the LT pc is the new shiny one with Vista installed. So lets start here.
Hop on that LT pc and follow the directions below.
Double Click My Computer
Right Click C:\ Drive
Type in the name of the PC that you would like to be able to access it
Click Check Names
if PC name is found Click OK
Now.... Make sure the PC name of the other PC is highlighted and check each allow box to grant permission for that pc.
Then Click OK
That should do the trick. If not, come again and I'll take you another route.
