Cant connect to Win7 x86 laptop

Keep getting the error the network path was not found, thing is both are set to use the same workgroup, same ip range and subnet, the laptop can connect to the main pc but not the other way around.

net view \\hostname = error 53 path not found
net view \\ = error 53 path not found

both firewalls are set to allow each other through, and netbios is on.

So im stumped atm

Found the issue and solved it, i don't know how but tcp/ip helper had been disabled - set that to automatic and start it, all is good :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
