Windows 7: Rogue XP machine on Network -

Rogue XP machine on Network -

Hi all
I've got a network with 2 Windows 7 and 2 XP PRO SP3 machines

I can see ALL of them on ALL machines but ONE just refuses whatever I do to allow direct access to it from EITHER of the Windows 7 Machines (build 7137 x-64 )

All firewalls off etc.
same userid's passwords etc etc.

What's up with this one XP machine. Windows 7 Networking never seems to work correctly at times. Never have a problem with SAMBA on 'NIX.

hey jimbo

I had the exact same situation running win 7 on all machines except one xp for legacy stuff. Tried almost every under the sun but no joy. I think it was something to do with the way win 7 (homegroup) does network protocols, but the only way I could get access was to dual boot the xp machine. It was weird even in xp (with win 7 installed but not active) I was able to share, access all.

Sorry I couldn't be helpful
