Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. comput

    Configured a network of three computers using windows xp network wizard. Two
    of the computers can see shared files on the third computer. However, one of
    the network computers cannot see the shared files on the other two computers.
    Using ping in the command window confirms that all computers are connected
    to each other. However, when I run ipconfig/all in the command window, I see
    that for two of the computers, the DNS suffix Search List is the name of the
    workgroup. The DNS suffix search list for the third computer is the name of
    another network that is connected (when enabled) by a VPN client. How do I
    fix this problem so that all of the network computers can see the shared
    files on the other network computers?

  2. This is a good questing. I assume we can fix this issue by enabling NetBIOS
    over TCP/IP. If not, please post the results of ipconfig all here.

    Thanks fo r your help. I tried NetBios over TCP/IP but that did not work. I
    have pasted the ipconfig/all of the three computers on the net here:

  5. Re: Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. co

    Hi
    look at the Control panel/Network Connections.
    If the adapter with VON None home connection appears there right click on it
    and choose Disable.
    Another rig click and choosing Enable will re-enable it if needed in another
    time.

    Re: Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. co

    Hello Jack,

    Thanks for looking into the problem. I looked at the Control Panel/Network
    Connections but there is no adapter with your description. Maybe, I don't
    understand what you mean by an adapter.

  7. Re: Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. co

    If you can ping each other by IP but name, this is name resolution issue. I
    don't see NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled in the ipconifg /all.

    Re: Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. co

    I don't understand your comment" If you can ping each other by IP but
    name, this is name resolution issue.". However, I have pasted the
    ipconfig/allof the three c omputers with the NetBios over TCP/IP enabled.
    The previous message had the ipconfig/all for the netBios over TCP/IP
    disabled. By the way, the two computers that can share files on the
    network, Rich and Marilyn, have windows XP Pro whereas Dave's compter is XP
    home. Is XP home less capable for this neworking application?

  11. Re: Computers on home network cannot shared files on other net. co

    I don't see the "NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled" in the
    ipconfig /all result. Any, can you ping each other by IP? If yes, can you
    each other by Host Name?
