    Ok i run a Win2k3 server fully updated. I was running a pop3 role with it as well as running it as a file server. I was playing around with the VPN function in it and broke it. So i had physically gfet on the server and remove that function. But now my computer cant see it and it cant see my computer.

    Its part of the workgroup i run but it wont show up on my rig and the rig wont show up on it.

    I dropped the workgroup then re joined on the server and no luck.

    I removed the file server role and then re added it on the server no luck.

    Im tired and annoyed any ideas guys?

    have you disabled services that you might need?

    worksation, application layer, backround inteligent etc,

    set the services to default, I forgot how to do that but there's a gui that just send it to default somewhere

    Geffy- Yah i checked same. TCP/Ip on both seem to be doing ok. Only symptom i have is that they cant see each other.

    Perris- I should but i havent. The real slap should go to the fact that i dont have the 120 gig main drive partitioned slmaller for the OS so i have 90 gigs of data im gona need to move. hehe thats were the real slap should come from.

    Any other ideas guys? I just woke up so im thiking better.

    Iv started transfering data not the end of the world to have to recore it its been a whiler and having to reconfigure it while being a pain in the arse does refresh my memory.

    Can the PC's ping each other? What OS are these PC's running XP Home or Pro along with 2k3? Do you have username/passwords on all of these PCs? Is there a domain involved since you are running a server?

    Yah i pinged both the ips forom each machine allready. doesnt drop any packets and full connection.

    all PCs are running winXP pro fully updated except the server thats running windows server 2003 full updated.

    No domain involved.

    This is a home server havent been bored enough to set up a domain for it hehe.

    Can you browse the PC's by IP address or by UNC name?

    its not there. Its acting like it isnt in the same workgroup. Im dealing primarily with file sharing and i just cant see the computer in the workgroup or go directly to the share via run.

    Does it say not accessible or not authorized? Are your usernames/passwords the same on all of the PC's?
