I am a new Vista user, with over a dozen years of Windows experience (mostly
Win2K). I am having some difficulties in getting Vista and Win2K (on
different systems on my LAN) to "see" each other so that I can transfer
The Vista system can access and transfer files from the Win2K system OK --
both drive mapping and using the run|\\systemname\sharename work OK.
The problem is that the Win2K system can "see" the shares on the Vista
system, but not access them (network path not found). Also, I cannot PING
the Vista machine, by IP address or systemname. I have shut Vista's
firewall down, but something is blocking incoming traffic. Also, I set
Vista up to do "no password required" file sharing.
I have tried using the same user/password on both systems, but that doesn't
change either system's behavior.
Please, does anyone know what might still be blocking Win2K's ability to
directly access Vista files? As the Win2K system is my desktop, and the
Vista system is a laptop, it's much more convenient for me to use the Win2K
system to access the laptop, rather than vice versa. It's pretty clear I
need to change something on Vista to allow access over my LAN.
