    Networking (XP)

    I am trying to re-network a program we use in the office. The program pulls files off of one computer and we are switchin the hug computer. We have 10 computers in the office. The first 9, I went into the program and changed the settings of where the files are pulled (browsed network places, found the new computer and was able to select the shared files). However on the 10th computer, when I searched for the new computer, the icon for it does not appear in Network Places. Any reason for this?

    What kind of networking are you using? What protocols and clients? Is there a server involved?

    And are there any differences between the 10th computer and the other nine. Have you rebooted the problem computer?

    Its just a basic network with all computers being a member of the same workgroup to share files. But for some reason on the 10th computer, the icon for the computer that i need to pull files off of doesn't appear but all the other computers on the network are there. I have tried rebooting as well as updating all windows componants.

    Are you logging to all these PCs with the same username and password?

    Does the program allow you to enter the destinaiton without browsing for it? If so then can you just type in the full destination yourself?

    On the problem PC can you Start > Run and then enter computername followed by OK (where computername is the name of the computer you can't browse to. Does this let you see the shares?

    Did you explicitly turn on NetBios over TCP/IP? See attached (Dutch) example.

    Access your router settings and see how many computers are set up.
