This is a repost from an earlier thread which i posted in the wrong section.



I've searched a lot on forums and websites but haven't found anyone with the same problem I'm having.

So I have a computer A running windows XP
and a computer B running windows Vista 64-bit

Both are behind a D-Link router and belong to the same workgroup.

I can view computer B in the "Workgroup" computers, from computer A
but am unable to view computer A from computer B.

On both computers, the XP one is not found...

So basically, the XP can view and access vista, but can not view himself in the workgroup list,
while the Vista one can view only himself in the workgroup list.

I can ping using the computer name from both computers and it gets resolved just fine.

And i tried turning off window's firewall too... nothing!

Any suggestions?
(hope i explained the issue clearly :$ )

I hope you'll be able to help me :)
