Windows 7: They Can't See Me

They Can't See Me

I have a Win 7 Pro and my wife has Vista 64bit. On the win 7 computer when I hit network, I can see EVERYONE. When I get on my wife's computer, I can see the win 7 computer. My XBox 360 see's my wife's computer and not mine, but I see it. My smart phone (vibrant (using allshares)) see's my wife's computer, but not mine. So what's the deal here? I'm going nuts over this.

Hello,

Please verify all the configurations that you have made on the Vista and 7 computers. This guide should help.

Make sure that Netbios is enabled in Vista PC. Also, confirm that it's enabled in Windows 7 PC.

An update will be nice.

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit
 
 

Solution on Page 1 of this thread: Networking from Printer attached to Win XP PC to Win 7

Where it mentions XP, it will work for Vista just as well.

Can we try something? Do you know the IP Addresses of both computers and also the Host or Computer Names?
These info. can be found using the ipconfig /all command.

Please do this from both computers:

Share the Local Disk C and call it C, share it to everyone
Create an identical User Name and Password

From the Vista PC, click on Start and type these: \\Win7IPAddress\C and/or \\Win7ComputerName\C.
From the Windows 7 PC, click on Start and type these: \\VistaIPAddress\C and/or \\VistaComputerName\C.

Are you able to access the C Drive?

Please post an udpate.

UPDATE:
Okay, I just tried to play music from the server to my xbox, cell phone, win 7, and vista all using Windows Media Player. All played just the way I wanted. My phone is using the program called All Share. From my phone it picked up my server, my xbox pick up my server and both computers picked up the server. Is this a start in the right direction?

Now I don't know if this is any help or not, but from the vista computer, I clicked on the win 7 computer under networks and it stated it didn't have any access.

I tried and I'm a very new to this networking stuff. But anyway, I clicked on Network, and saw the following:
Vista Computer, Win 7 Computer, Readyshare Sever
Under Media Device
Vista Computer (A Box with a musical note and film strip)
The Sever (A Box with a musical note and file strip)
Xbox 360
Under Network Infrastructure:
WNDR3700v2 (Gateway)

Then I click on the Vista Computer and got the following:
Printer, Dan (Share Folder), Public (Share Folder), Users (Share Folder)

Then I click on the share folders and they all open execpt the User Folder and got the following:
network Error
Windows cannot access \\Vista-PC\Users

Then I when back to the start and clicked on Windows 7 Computer and saw 2 shared folders, clicked on those without any problems.

So all this was done from the Windows 7 Comptuer. Tomorrow night I'll bring you the highlights of me sitting in front of the Vista Computer.

No.1 suspect will be firewall blocking. Disable any Firewall or Security Software installed for now.

Post an ipconfig /all of the computer in question for review.
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd press enter (run as Admin for Vista and 7). From the black screen, type the word ipconfig /all and press enter. Right click on the black screen or Command prompt then choose Select All and Paste the results onto your Post.

If you can also do another ipconfig /all of the Vista computer that will be great.

Just for a test purpose, enable the Guest Account on Windows 7. See if others can ping and access shared files from Windows 7.
