Windows 7: Windows XP Server - Windows 7 Client

15 May 2011   #11

Windows XP

I have tried fiddling with that but cannot seem to get it configured correctly to work. With XP to XP it was a wizard running it which automatically configured it. I have manually configured it previously and I'm probly just missing one step or I might have an IP conflict with my wireless network and my adsl modem but I'm not 100% sure. With two different OS's and the older one being the host, I'm unable to configure it successfully.
