Re: Can't get Networked computers to share files
Hmm, I remember having a problem with this sort of thing a while ago. I looked up the MS Knowledge Base and there was infact an original networking problem in Windows XP. Altho they may have released a fix (I'm not particularly sure if they did or not) it's still a good idea to try the following. You havent stated what versions of Windows you are using or what updates you have installed, but your problem sounds extreamly similar to my own.
Believe it or not, the only way round this problem (without any updates, which were non-existant when I last looked - lol, to be honest that was a long time ago) is to install the combined IPX/SPX/NetBIOS protocols on all the machines for the network adapters. I'm guessing you know how to install additional protocols so i'll leave you to try this out.
Many of you might think this sounds a bit controversal, but it's worked a many of time for me. Give it a go and let us all know if it works or not.
Mind the reputation if it helps
