having a big headache here. Would really appreciate any help.
I am trying to connect to 2 win xp( pro and home) pc's with a crossover cable. Thought that would be easy , read tutorials & everything seems right but it wouldn't work! The problem now seems to be some silly tweak in my xp pro.
One visible problem is that I cannot 'see' any comp(or anythin else) under the 'workgroup' . There is only 1 workgroup . The error that pops up on selecting the workgroup:
"workgroup is not accessible you might not have permission to use this network... the list of servers for this workgroup is not available"
Whats up? I know I should be able to see atleast the current pc.
1. firewalls are disabled
2. Netbios is enabled
3. NO bindings problem - only tcp/ip being used
4. NO problems in "xp home "
1. routing and remore access service wouldn't start( I have no idea why).
