I have set up sharing according to many of the posts here. Workgroups are the
same, permissions set for everyone, if I check on my vista desktop I am
sharing a folder.
Workgroups are the same
I am also sharing folders on my 2 XP laptops.
On the laptops I cant see my vista machine in the workgroup
On the vista machine I cant see the laptops in the network map.
I can ping all machines from all machines without a problem.
