I have set-up 2 computers, one with WindowsXP and one with WindowsMe. Both
with the same fully working network cards. The network cable is working
fine, I can ping both machines and get replies, but I can't see each machine
from My Network Places.
I've put them on a workgroup called Tregaskes, one computer named Nic, the
other names Eve. I've gone though the Network and Home Networking wizards
on both machines. I've checked they both have TCP/IP, File Sharing and
Microsoft Network. I've set-up one machine to use the IP 192.168.0.1 and
the other to use 192.168.0.2, but still nothing works.
I have seen the other machine briefly appear. I had My Network Places open
in the Tregaskes workgroup in WindowsMe and while the WindowsXP machine was
booting into Windows I pressed Refresh and the other machine appeared -
refreshing a moment later the computer had gone.
Does anyone have any ideas? All I want is for the WindowsXP to see the
WindowsMe machine. I don't think I will be able to access the WinXP machine
from WinMe as the XP hard drives are formatted to NTFS.
Hope someone can help?
