Windows 7: Networking (to file share) between Windows 7 and Windows XP

31 Mar 2009   #71

Windows 7

I've rechecked everything, and rebooted after to see if that was the problem. It was the same on this 7068 build and 7000 build.
Here's a few screens showing I have the same as you.

Double checked everything, can't see what could be different. Could it be the hardware I'm using?

Anyone else have the time to test this, even to just see if you have the option to Add the Netbeui protocol.
Would like to know if it's just me. :)

Hmmm...everything seems well in your screenshots. Maybe the files you placed aren't the same as mine and correct after all.

Here's a link to what I use:

RapidShare: Easy Filehosting

Here's a screenshot of listing netBEUI:

Then all you need to do is click OK after clicking netBEUI and it will show as installed right above the Internet Protocol Version 6:

It's a no go, just not happening. Cannot get Netbeui to show up where it's supposed to.

Maybe it has somthing to do with these Atheros onboard nics. I just cannot get it to appear.
Thanks for your help torrentg, but I don't want to drive anyone crazy trying to fix this strange issue

*sigh* just forget about the netbeui crap and try what I suggested.

what a big BUG !

Hi people,

i have the same problems like you.

So i was using 7000 and network was working...
then i install 7057 so it was start for problems....
  • unable to "connect" XP to Win.7 (inverse yes)
  • RDP working
  • default admin sharing not more allowed (c$)

ok so i reinstall (clean) the 7000 but the BUG STAY !!!
so of course i have delete all stored network password ((on XP machines)(under users accounts settings) because some times it's bug there. )

what is really strange in this bug you can still acces to this

but when you want reach any folder you get this

To check open cmd prompt and type: ipconfig /all

Then scroll up to find your Host Name (Computer name) and the Node Type: a couple lines down.

set machine A and B on static IP addresses

Since stoneage it's what i'm doing also... but in this case it's not working either !

Thats what i had. 7068 has fixed it all for me. Even done it as a upgrade and not a clean install.

I think with lots of us having different experiences/issues with the same builds - must have somthing to do with the way it installs on different hardware configurations.
Well that's my guess as to what's happening.

Ive just tried to re create how i got it working and i think this is how i did it.
Im not using Home group at the moment and im sure there are easier ways fo doing it. This just worked for me.
Right click on the folder you want to share, go to properties and sharing. click Sharing and make sure you add "Everyone" to the list. Click share and go out of that tab. At this point my XP box could see the folder but wouldn't let me in. Go back to its properties and go to Security. Click on "Everyone" and then Edit and tick all the boxes that come up. Once i ok'ed all that i could then access my folder without any problems.
So it seems its a security issue and not a sharing issue.
This seems to work even if im using Home group.

Hope this helps.
