I have two desktop PCs networked for file/sharing (sort of) using wired LAN .

PC-OLD
xp-pro
pc name: oldie


PC-NEW
XP MEDIA (PRO)
pc name: newbie


Workgroup: Earth (set in both pc's)

Here's the situation:
In the new pc, under my network places, I see the computer name and the shared docs:

name:Shareddocs on newbie
comments: newbieshareddocs


In the the old PC in the network places, I see the same above (newbie pc). That's fine.

How come I'm not seeing oldie pc shared folders in both pC's??


When I click "view workgroup computers", in both PC's , I only see 'newbie' but not 'oldie'?

What's happening?

Thanks for any help.
