Windows 7: Network problems

[Fixed] Network problems

I have Windows Seven 7600 and i'm trying to share files with a XP SP2 machine!
Problems:
-XP machine can see Seven machine but can't access shared folders!
-Seven machine can see XP machine but when i'm tryng to see shared folders it gives me an error(see on screenshot)
-Network map doesn't work(see screenshot)
-Both machines have same workgroup MSHOME but when i go to homegroup it says there is no people in the homegroup!(see on screenshots)

Other info:
Before i couldn't turn network discovery on,every time i was set it to on he was going to off so I searched on this forum(great forum) and finally i was able to turn it on,maybe others have this problem so there what i did:i go to start=>run=>services.msc and i turned on(also i switched them to automatic startup) these services DNS Client, Function Discovery Resource Publication, SSDP Discovery, and UPnP Device Host services.
IPv6 currently is enabled!

Good job with the forum,hope someone have some solutions for me!

visy, is it a workgroup, or a homegroup called "workgroup"?. Is the xp in a workgroup, and the win 7 in a homegroup?

can you ping from xp>win 7, and win 7>xp

I was just setting this up the other day so I could share network files between my XP machines and my Windows 7 machines.

I had to run the network setup wizard in XP first, then click the allow sharing files option when it gets to the end.

For Windows 7, you need to make sure that everything is set up to share files on both the home network and also the public network. You need to click on the public arrow at the bottom of the page to enable public sharing. Looks like this.

Homegroup is not the same as workgroup.

No,both have same Workgroup :MSHOME,when i go on Windows Seven to homegroup it says there is no other people in the homegroup!

I modified security options so now i can acces files of Seven machine but Seven machine still can't access Xp files!
First screenshot it's XP pinging result,second is Seven pinging result!

Some way i Seven machine can see XP machine but still can't access it!(see screenshot)

Thanks for reply,hope i can fix the problem!

Thats because in order to use homegroups you need to share libraries.

The easy way to do this is outlined in my first post. I've been sharing with my XP machine and Windows 7 since day one without problems.

Im thinking you have a workgroup called mshome (on xp) and a homegroup called mshome ( on win 7). They are different. you can change the homegroup to a workgroup. open hetwork and sharing and either create a new connection using the workplace instead of homegroup or click on your existing homegroup and change it to workplace.
