    Networking Problem

    I have 2 PC's and a laptop. Here is my problem. I will call this PC, "A". and the other PC "B".
    The laptop can see and share folders from both PC "A", and "B". Both PC's can see and share from each other. The PC's, cannot see the laptop. I have checked and rechecked all settings, and all are the same. Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Thanks John

    Re: Networking Problem

    What OS is on each machine?

    What firewalls are on each machine?

    What is the "Workgroup" and "computer" name on each machine?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Have you entered the Laptop IP address in ZA to make it a Trusted IP?

    Re: Networking Problem

    I show an IP address in there, but to double check, and at the risk of sounding totally stupid :-) how do I find the IP address of the laptop?

    Cointrol Panel, Network Connections and then the "Support Tab".

    Re: Networking Problem

    I found a difference in the Local Area Properties. on the laptop the Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 was not installed will install that and see what happens too. I did re-do the IP address as well it seemed to have been off by a digit. That done (change the IP address) didnt do anything nor did installing the TCP/IP Version 6

    Re: Networking Problem

    Is this image from the Laptop or a Desktop?

    The Laptop IP address needs to be in the settings of the desktops, and the the desktops need to listed on the laptop.
