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?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
