2 Vista PCs can't browse each other

Posted: 08-06-2006, 01:52 AM
We had setup 2 Vista PCs and using same ID and password, also under
administrators group. Why each computer can't browse other computer, even
input ID and password in each prompting. Is it any function need disable or
enable to open this feature?

Thanks

Have you made sure that both computers are in the same workgroup?
Have you enabled Discovery and Sharing on each computer? And set which
folders are shared?
Is the network set as 'Private'?

We had the problem of an x86 and an x64 seeing each other because they were
simply on seperate subnets. One thing I've learned in my years with setting
up networks: Always use static IPs. DHCP is for cyber cafes...lol
