I recently purchased a new desktop maching running Vista Home Premium and am trying to network it with my existing desktop and laptop both running XP Home. Both desktops are hardwired into my router and the laptop is wireless. I'm having trouble seeing the Vista machine from either of my XP computers. I'm able to see and manipulated files on the XP machines w/Vista machine. All the computers are using the same "workgroup name" and I believe I set the sharing properly on the Vista machine...but then again, this is my firs rodeo with Vista!

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
John

That's perfect, John.

From what I can see, it doesn't look like you have any files/folders shared on your Vista machine as of yet. Please go to a folder that you would like to share, right-click on it and select Properties -- select the Sharing tab and then press the Advanced Sharing button. Check (tick) Share this folder and then select Apply. Can the other other computers now see/access this file/folder?

If not, can you please make sure you have the following settings in place:
  • Press Start
  • In the Start Search field type network and select Network and Sharing Center
  • In the new window, under the Sharing and Discovery section, can you please set the following status for each:
  • Network Discovery -- ON
  • File sharing -- ON
  • Public folder sharing -- ON
  • Printer sharing -- ON (if you want to actually share a printer, that is)
  • Password protected sharing -- OFF
If after doing this, you still can't access the Vista machine, from one of the XP machines, please goto Start --> Run --> In the run box, type \\DELLDESKTOP and then press OK -- what happens? Now, try typing \\192.168.0.199 and press OK -- what happens? Please post any error messages that may appear.

[EDIT]I should note here that if you have any third-party firewalls installed on your Vista machine, please try temporarily disabling them and seeing if this resolves the issue.

Thanks,
- Dan

Dan,

After following your steps, the results of the start/run/delldesktop or IP address showed the shared drives and printers and I can now see the "d" drive from my XP computer but when I click on it, it gives me an error that tells me the d drive is not accessible. "you might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact administrator..."

Under the advanced sharing tab...It shows "everyone" having full control of the shared "d" drive.

Your thoughts on why this would be?

Thanks again,
John

Hey John,

It's possible you may not have the guest account activated. Please do the following on your Vista machine.

Step 1 - Activate the Guest account:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type net user guest /active:yes
  • If you have difficulty seeing the exact spacing, try copying the command into Notepad, as this may help.
If you still can't access the files, then can you please repeat the steps from my first post, so that I can see what's going on.

Thanks,
- Dan

Hey John,

It looks like you have everything shared correctly, however I'm not seeing the Vista machine in the NetBios table. This is most likely due to an error with the Vista machine -- let's try to see what it is. On the Vista machine, please do the following:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type nbtstat -n and press the ENTER key on your keyboard.
  • Right-click on the command prompt window, select Select All and then press the ENTER key on your keyboard; this will copy the text -- you should now be able to paste it into your next response.
Please ensure that NetBios over TCP/IP is enabled, on your Vista machine.

Step 1 - Enable NetBios over TCP/IP:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the ncpa.cpl and then press the ENTER key on your keyboard.
  • In the new window, right-click on your Local Area Connection (or wireless) and select Properties.
  • In the new window, select (highlight) Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then press Properties (alternately, simply double-click on it).
  • Click the Advanced button.
  • Select the WINS tab.
  • Select Enable NetBIOS Over TCP/IP and then repeatedly press OK to exit out of all open windows.
Thanks,
- Dan

Everything looks good there. One step you may wish to try is creating the Windows XP User Accounts on the Vista machine; so, create new accounts that have the same username and password on the Vista machine as they do on the XP machines.

For example, if you logon to your XP machine with the username Billy and password Bob, you would create the same user Billy with the password Bob on your Vista machine; try granting it admin privileges and then see if you can connect from the XP machine.

Let's also check for software interference.

Step 1 - Generate a startup and uninstall list:
Please download HijackThis (if you do not already have it) and install it -- once it is installed, restart your computer. Once the computer starts up, can you please launch HijackThis and then select the option Open the Misc Tools section -- select Generate StartupList log. Save the startup list in a safe location. Now select the option Open Uninstall Manager and then click Save list -- save it to a safe location. Please post the contents of the startup list and the uninstall list in your next response.

Step 2 - Generate a tasklist log:
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type cmd -- right-click on the cmd program and choose Run as administrator
  • In the new command prompt window, type tasklist /svc > C:\tasks.txt
  • Navigate to your C: drive and open the text file tasks.txt -- please copy/paste the contents of this file into your next response.
Thanks,
- Dan

I've been told by a co-worker that it's very hard for an XP machine to see a Vista machine, but is it impossible? Both being Microsoft products this is baffling...

Thanks again,
John

My users on both machines were and still are exactly the same names (all did/do not require a password)

Some times the exact issue that you are experiencing can be caused by the lack of passwords; try temporarily adding passwords to your User Accounts -- ensure that the username and passwords are identical on all of the machines for this test.

I've never had any issue what-so-ever networking between XP and Vista machines. It's normally just plug n' play. However, for most people setting up a network falls into two categories -- (a) extremely easy or (b) ridiculously difficult. You seem to have fallen into category B, unfortunately :)

There's still a few other things we can look at, but for the time being I'd like to know if adding passwords to your User Accounts makes a difference.

Thanks,

Adding the passwords did work! Unfortunately this is not my ideal setup. I find it silly (not on your part, but Microsoft's) that we'd have to type in a password every time either my wife or I want to log in to our computer when we are the only two people that use them at this time.

Unless you can think of anything else to try, I guess this is how it will have to be. Luckily the Vista machine is our main computer now, so that cuts down on some of the confusion.

Thanks,
John

Hey John,

I'm glad to hear your issue has been resolved.

Unfortunately this is not my ideal setup. I find it silly (not on your part, but Microsoft's) that we'd have to type in a password every time either my wife or I want to log in to our computer when we are the only two people that use them at this time.

I'm afraid I don't know any other way to resolve this; some other user may be able to post. It has to do with how Vista authorizes user access, which differs from XP. I've never had a chance to play around with a network where this issue existed, so I haven't tracked down exactly why it's occurring.
