im a newbie here so forgive me if this seems simple to you guys ..
i have been atttempting to use the networking wizard on a win xp machine to set up a file sharing connection mshome between it and a win 2000 machine
at the moment both computers are connected to the internet via a router and an isp assigned static ip address ( thus both machines are assigned dynamic ip address i think?)
anyhoo ....when i try to run the .exe file created by the networking wizard on the win 2000 machine i find that it is not supported by win 2000.
i have tried to set up the win 2000 machine manually ie changing the group name to mshome and this seemed to work ... i get the message on 2000 machine " welcome to mshome" happy days .... but there is still problems
when i "search for workgroup computers" each computer only lists itself under mshome .
pinging from each computer to the router is fine however pinging between computers gives the message " request timed out "
perhaps i have neglected to complete some steps i am not sure .
any suggestions would be appreciated.
