Home network between vista machines

I followed all the instructions of several textbooks on the subject to get 2 PC to talk about a task force private using Vista Home...   In fact at some point these PC 2 connect...

Using the control panel > network > network sharing Panel...  I implemented the 2 PCs so no permissions are required to communicate to ove my home wireless network...

AND when I "View Full Network", I see the PC machine most my Windows 7 2.

BUT whne I just go to the "network" I only see my native machine on the Local network. AND if I try to map a network drive the other PS are NOT recognized.

How to solve what is blocking the connection?

Is there a list of things to check or "ping"?

The question, is my new DSL AT & T Wireless and router?  Blocking of communication between computers?

For hours on this "simple"... problem

Thank you

AT & T


Naughty NORTON SEURITY!  blocked me.

Norton could see my 3 PCs...  But there they were 'protected' (isloated)

I changed their 'TRUST' and bingo!  SCP could communicate and share files!

Thanks for any suggestions...  I'll make my own list of quick steps MORE these reference files

  • Networking between virtual machines on different hosts


    I need some advice on the basic approach to networking between virtual machines, each running on a different host machine.

    Consider the following configuration:

    I have a few processes that are running in a Machine virtual Ubuntu. Call this guest1.  I guest1 race inside a real computer running Windows XP SP3 and VMware Workstation 7.x; Call this host 1.

    I have a copy of this virtual machine that I put on another machine.  Call this Guest2.  I have Guest2 running on a separate physical computer, also runs Windows XP SP3 and VMware Workstation 7.x; Call this host 2.

    Now, I would like to guest1 and 2 comments to make networking with eachother.  I wish they were able to ping, SSH, etc., among others.

    This is where I am stuck. I tried setting the virtual machines to use the bridged network mode.  I tried to connect my router on each computer and manually assigning IP addresses to each host and each virtual computer.  When I do this, guest1 can Host1 and Host2 ping, but cannot ping Guest2 and vice versa.

    What is the right way to do this kind of network?  This seems like an obvious application, if you want to perform simulations on multiple virtual machines residing on different computers on the network.

    I apologize if this is the answer elsewhere, I had to dig and was not able to find the solution.

    Thanks in advance!


    Guests must be on the same subnet, like 'real' hardware machines.

    1 when you copied the VM and then started, what did answer you the question of copy/move? (this determines if a new MAC address is applied)

    2 view each guest and ' ipconfig/all' results 'ifconfig - a' by the hosts.

  • Machines Vista cannot see the rest of the home network

    I don't know what's happened recently, but here's the thing.

    I have a home network, 1 Vista desktop, 1 Office XP with shared USB attached, 1 drive NAS (running Linux kernel I think). All devices set to the same workgroup 'HOUSE '. Until recently, I could see all the devices in the Vista machine with the selection of 'network' of the Explorer.

    Now I see that me, the wireless router, and if I turn it on, an another Vista laptop. The Vista laptop has the same situation - he sees only the vista desktop and router and anything else3.

    I can connect to the XP computer manually by entering \\computer_name\external_drive_name and even with the NAS drive. I can't see the with the Vista Explorer.

    I can't say exactly when it happened, but is has been in the last month. I see the console of restoration that there is an update Tuesday 4/11, but if I try to restore before this date of restoration fails.

    Discovery network, file sharing, etc., are always turned on. I tried to do a complete reset of the router but nothing helped.

    FYI - Norton of 365 security card option fortunately shows everything on the network, so I know that all devices are in the same workgroup.

    Any advice would be greatly welcome.

    I solved the problem with advice from another forum. I forced the desktop computer to become the master browser by setting 'MaintainServerList' in the registry for the 'yes' rather than 'auto '.

    I can now see all the connected devices.

  • Sharing files on home network - Vista Home Premium 32 and 64

    Hello people,

    I searched for hours, I made countless different steps to try to understand this point, and yet I'm still far away.
    I have two computers on my home network.
    -Machine 1 is Vista Home Premium 32-bit and is connected via a wired connection to my NetGear router.
    -Machine 2 is Vista Home Premium 64-bit and is connected via a Wireless connection to my NetGear router.
    I have a WD WorldBook connected to the Machine 1 via USB and I would like to be able to access it through my home network on Machine 2.
    Here are my settings that may be useful to know.
    Machine 1:
    -Network: NotURInterwebs (private network)
    -Working Group: DISCOVERY
    -The discovery of the network: WE
    -File sharing: WE
    -Public folder sharing: OFF
    -Printer sharing: OFF
    -Password protected sharing: WE
    -Media Sharing: OFF
    Machine 2:
    -Network: NotURInterwebs (private network)

    -The discovery of the network: WE
    -File sharing: WE
    -Public folder sharing: OFF
    -Printer sharing: OFF
    -Password protected sharing: WE
    -Media Sharing: OFF
    If I go into start-> network on the Machine 2 I see the other computer and the router, but when I click on the Machine 1 I get the following text:
    Windows cannot access \\Machine#
    Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there could be a problem with your network. In an attempt to identify and solve network problems, click on diagnose.
    Error code: 0 x 80070035
    The network path was not found.
    However, when I go to start-> network on computer 1 and click on Machine 2, I have no problem connecting.
    Does anyone have an ideas that could help me understand what is happening?
    Thank you!


    Thanks for the detailed information.

    We need additional information to help you with the problem, please answer the following.

    What antivirus application do you use?

    I suggest to change firewall security settings, or disable the security software on the system and try to access the location.

    Method 1:

    Disable the firewall on the Machine 1 and check the status of the issue.

    Enable or disable Windows Firewall


    Note: You should not turn off Windows Firewall unless you have another firewall is enabled. Turning off Windows Firewall may make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage caused by worms or hackers.

    Note: In addition to a firewall, you must also be an antivirus and anti-malware program to help protect your computer. Install Microsoft Security Essentials or another antivirus and anti-malware program and update it. Many of these programs update automatically.

    Method 2:
    Error code 0 x 80070035 indicates that the network path was not found. This problem occurs if the NetBIOS over TCP IP is not enabled in Windows Vista. Please follow the steps below.

    (a) click on «Start», enter "NCPA. CPL"(without the quotes) and press ENTER.

    (b) right click on the connection you use for the local connection, and then click "Properties".

    (c) click on the button continue to check the permission of the administrator.

    (d) click to select 'Protocol Internet Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)' and then click 'properties '.

    (e) click on the button "Advanced" in the opened window. On the "WINS" tab, select 'Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP' and then click 'OK' to save the setting.

    The following article presents NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

  • Connection problems XP machine to the rest of the home network

    I have a home network with a Vista machine configuration, a NAS and a XP computer. The Vista PC is able to read and write on the NAS and sees the XP computer. PC XP have internet access but can only see the SIN as uPnP and cannot read or write on the NAS and does not see the Vista machine or WORKING Group also. Both computers have the McAffee protection and 'trust' between them.

    What I've done wrong? Can someone please help?


    Regarding SIN, you should check the Server NAS Manuel and software making sure that it is compatible and configured properly with both computers.

    Regarding the Windows share.

    For the best newspaper of the results of each computer screen system and together all computers on a network of the same name, while each computer has its own unique name.

    Make sure that the software firewall on each computer allows free local traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall on, Vista/XP Firewall Native should be disabled, and the active firewall has adjusted to your network numbers IP on what is sometimes called the Zone of confidence (see part 3 firewall instructions

    General example, http://www.ezlan.net/faq.html#trusted
    Please Note that some 3rd party software firewall continue to block the same aspects it traffic Local, they are turned Off (disabled).
    If possible, configure the firewall correctly or completely uninstall to allow a clean flow of local network traffic.

    If you end up with the 3rd party software uninstalled or disabled, make sure that Windows native firewall is active .

    When everything is OK, restart the network (router and computer).

    * Note . The groups and users listed in the screen-shoot are just an example. Your list will focus on how your system is configured.

    ** Note . All the users who are allowed to share need to have an account onall computers that they are allowed to connect to.

    Everyone is an account, that means a group of all users who already have an account now as users. It is available to avoid the need to configure permission for each on its own, it does not mean all those who feel that they would like to connect.

  • XP computer does not access the Vista computer on the home network.

    I have a three home computers I'm trying to set up using two with XP - Pro (all updates including SP3 installed) and a third with Vista Home Premium (SP2 installed, all the updates that are installed to date). The two XP machines can connect (access) between them, but they cannot access the Vista machine. The Vista Machine can access the two XP machines. I've tried every tip/trick that I can find so far and nothing. Ping on each pc test, uninstalled the Norton firewall, permisions changed part to the best of my knowledge on all PCs, I am the owner of the computer and to assume with a single account on Vista I have right to full ownership, contacted the manufacturer of routers (performed an upgrade), but nothing is allowing access to the Visat pc.  When you view the network connections on the XP machines, Vista is listed, I can click to open and see the folders to share, but when I try to open a file I get the error\\xxx\xx is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact. admin of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied.

    It's funny that I can find other users to comment on other forums that they are experincing the opposite scenrio with access denied on XP machines... Thanks in advance for any help...


    Uninstall any software antivirus and then check to see if you can access the Vista computer again.

    Warning: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software.
    If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    It works in Windows 7. Each group can see all the others and can access shared files and printers
    with one exception. Vista computer is not visible from the XP computers. It is visible from
    the Windows 7 computer. I guess that there is a setting somewhere on the Vista machine
    That I need to change, but I'm not.

    You are using a router that is easier or making an ad hoc network?

    Leave a message from Bob Cerelli:

    The bases for troubleshooting are:

    1. make sure that you have the same (e.g., 192.168.0.x) intellectual property regime.

    2 make sure you have the same mask subnet, gateway, and DNS IP addresses.

    3. make sure you can ping the IP address of the other computer. Failure, just to test, make sure that you disable XP as well as any other firewall.

    4. make sure that you can test other computers by name.

    5. make sure that you have the same workgroup name (note the spaces)

    6. for purposes of troubleshooting, turn off XP and completely uninstall any other firewall software. You can always add more complexity once get you it working.

    7 with XP, make sure you have the same user name and password that the person by connecting to other computers. The default setting for XP Pro is to require a password for network access.

    Hi Artistaplm,

    To better understand the issue, I would like to clarify the following things:

    (a) are you referring to the Internet or network connection?

    (b) how to access your mail? Using a mail client or Webmail? This happens at the same time?
