    Can not access or See PC in a WorkGroup

    Both are are the same workgroup name.
    I can ping it.
    I can remote desktop to it.
    I was to share files off it but can not browse to it.

    PC 1 XP Pro
    PC 2 2003 Server

    XP firewall is off
    File Sharing is on from what I can tell.

    I can not browse to it.
    \\192 or server name in the explorer say it can not be found.

    Ideas?

    Nope, I enabled it. I did not reboot and could not connect. I will give that a try and see if that fixes it thanks.

    Turn off your firewall(s) and try again. If that works it is the firewall. You will need to open up access on your LAN for the specific computers (both) or just leave the firewall down while transfering the files.

    Which way are you trying to go - PC to Server or Server to PC?

    Have you tried accessing it by machine name?

    and by IP address - I should think this is NOT a DNS issue so if that worked (you say it does I believe) then I am unsure how name can help :s - no offence Dereck - just my dumb

    No offense taken, admittely only skimmed the thread.

    However I have seen instances where it can resolve name by not IP, and vice versa - which is why I was asking ;)

    I have tried both ways to access.

    I have also tried machine name as well.

    I wonder if my cheep belkin router has anything to do with it. I should try it with my Linksys and see maybe. I am really at a loss it should work since I can remote desktop to it, but only by IP and not name.

    And both accounts on the 2 machines are password proteced ? If not you wont be able to share unpassworded machines are not secure and XP will not want to share in that enviroment.

    is your IP static? if its set to DHCP then the ip might be wrong .... in that case you wouldnt be able to remote either..wierd

    I guess it should be noted that all of my PCs on the network are visible, pingable, accessable by name & IP, etc. NLM just has bad luck ..haha

    that explains everything. undo your security measures and everything will be fine.
