    Hey,

    I've got a small problem, not sure how to fix it. I'd really like to, otherwise my MCE box upstairs can't access the stuff on this Vista PC.

    Basically, none of the Windows machines can see my PC on the network, but can ping and can also access it directly fine, either via IP or name.

    Anyone have any idea why?

    Cheers,

    Open up the Network and Sharing Center.
    Have you set your network profile type to Private? Is Network Discovery turned on, along with File Sharing?

    haha i'm a noob - it didn't keep the workgroup settings I'd set.

    Cheers, mate!
