Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Ok, im trying to set up a home network to share files between 2 computers. Ive run the network setup wizard on both, gave both the same workgroup name, rebooted both, waited 30 minutes, and still nothing. So i tried it again, changed the computers names, descriptions and the workgroup name and rebooted. Im still getting an error "Mshome (Workgroup name) is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this network to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found".
For background, one of the computers is running XP Pro, one Home. The weird thing is, depending on which computer on which the network setup wizard is run first will be able to access the workgroup, but the other one will not. Ive never run into this error before.
Ive got both computers assigned static IP's through my router, my router can see both, its just one computer can consistently not see the other one.
Anyone have any ideas on this? Im stumped. I tried googling, only found with guy with a problem similiar to mine.... He apparently waited 10 hours and then the computers could magically talk. I dont want to sit around for that long if theres something i can do in the mean time to fix this.
