Unable to browse network

    Hi,

    I have 3 XP systems on a network. My already mapped network drives are able
    to access the network shares on other systems and also synchronise the
    offline files. But I am unable to browse the network in Network Places
    under Microsoft Windows Network. The workgroup name show but when I click
    on that, the response after many secs is "workgroup is not accessible. You
    might not have permission to use this network resource" And I use Admin
    user.

    I suspect there may be some service which may not be running on the system.
    But i dont want to mess around with that. Any clues on that please?

    thanks

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what is allowed
    to be shared.
