Windows 7: Redid HomeGroup to solve access issues, now not all show in Win Expl

Redid HomeGroup to solve access issues, now not all show in Win Expl

Was setting up a new backup system and was running into access issues. Since everything was set properly, thought, well, I'll just dump the HomeGroup and set up a new one. Solved the access issue, but now, my 64 bit machine sees the 2 32 bit machines, but they don't see it (they do see each other). No problem accessing shares through the network tree and all show correctly in full network map, but I can't get either 32 bit to see the 64 in HomeGroup. (They all showed prior to redoing the Homegroup)

Any ideas?

Your better not using home group it adds ipv6 and more trouble than it's worth as you don't gain anything. When Windows looks for stuff on the network it doesn't normally look it uses NetBIOS and goes the the Master browse which should have the list so yours isn't updating. Have you got NetBIOS active on all PC's?

Yes, Netbios is enabled. No configuration changes since leaving, then re-establishing the homegroup, when each machine could see the other 2.

Found the glitch. Although I had marked my libraries (64 bit machine) to share on the homegroup page, they weren't. Once I manually shared them with the homegroup, then it showed up on the other 2 machines.
