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?

Cheers, mate!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
