hey all, I am trying to set up a network with 2 Xp pro computers and they will just not see each other. I am trying to use NetBeui and still nothing.... Firewalls are off, cables ok etc etc etc. They can both access the internet through the switch so that is ok. I have also tried TCP/IP and the problem is that my ISP requires that the IP be obtained automatically so I can't set the ips for the network. WIll the 'Alternate Configuration' work the same? How do I get that working? When I do set the ips manually, the internet stops working and I can ping the computers! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
