Alright so I don't have home internet but, I have setup a wireless network at home. With this network I'm able to connect a Win XP Laptop to my Win7 laptop by going through the workgroup and logging in to my system. However, when I try to do the reverse and connect to the XP laptop with my Win7 laptop it gives me a DNS error. Since my network is offline I definitely can't connect to DNS but, since it's a local (Home) network it shouldn't matter (and obviously XP doesn't care).
To Clarify by connect I mean to browse the files of. Also, I did make sure that the XP system was in fact sharing it's folders via a similar process to how I enabled sharing of my Win7 folders. Any idea's on what's actually going wrong would be great (or is it just that Win7 has a bug that requires DNS to do this).
The XP machine was up to date as of SP3 (I'm updating it now though I doubt it'll make a difference). My Win7 machine is completely up to date (with the exception of my regular programs which are up to date as of 4 days ago).
Just so you all know I am also unable to update to SP1 for 7. This is however unrelated (it's because the updaters having issues accessing the special Windows Partition likely because of Ubuntu. I'll fix it later when I reformat this machine (which I planned to do anyway)).
