I have a vista laptop SP1
Two windows xp pro sp3 computers
I am using a belkin router
All three computers are using a zonealarm firewall
If i am using my laptop, there is no way I can view the computers on the workgroup. If i type in the Ip address, i get an error saying Windows cannot access \\***.***.*.*
Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise there might be a problem with your network.
However, when i go onto any of the XP computers, i am able to see all of the computers on the workgroup and I am able to access the shared folders only on the XP computers.
When i am on one one of the XP computers and I try to access the laptop. It says, \\computer-name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resourse. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found.
Is there anything else you need to know??
