XP does not see Windows 7 by Z.K.
I am trying to use my Windows 7 on my home network and I am having some trouble. I have two XP machines, one is professional and the other is home and I am using Windows 7 Professional. I shared a folder in Windows 7, but in XP Professional, in My Network Places, it does not even see the Windows 7 machine though I can ping the ip address. In Windows 7, I can see my XP Professional machine,...

How to allow server access but restrict internet access? by ChrisOfTheOT
Our Vista laptops (& my Xbox) access our basic Windows Home Server system through a Netgear router. It's all fine, but I want to (easily & quickly!) restrict & control when some laptops can access the internet while allowing free access to the server. (For instance, so children's internet access can be monitored but they can always get to photos & backups, etc. on the server.) What might be...

Advisability of ISP Proposed DNS Server Numbers Changes on Windows by Tom461
I could not find a Windows 7 discussion group, which seems to mean that Win 7 users go to Vista groups. My ISP, Earthlink delivered by Comcast cable, says the only way I can get out of their very much unwanted Earthlink Search Assistant is to change the DNS numbers to, apparently. two preset numbers selected by a radio button in my Windows programs. My question is whether choosing this...

Vista - Windows 7 networking oddity by Questor[_2_]
Just this evening my Win7 machine refuses to "see" my Vista machines in the 'Network' dialog. My Vista machine can access all the shared items on the Win7 machine just fine. Previously (before this evening) I was able to open "Network" on the W7 machine and see every one of my computers. Now, all it does is flash the 'green bar' across the top and give me nothing but shared folders on my...

Printer Sharing. Must "Share name" match printername, on all computers? by No Name
Three different computers, running three OSs; Vista Home Premium, XP Pro, and Win7 Pro 64-bit. My Vista laptop used to be connected to a certain Canon printer, and its name in Control Panel/Printers is "Canon iP6700D" and when I click on Properties, and the Share tab, that is also the spelling of the "Share name". If I am trying to network to that Canon printer, which is now hard-cabled to...

Can't open files that are already open by another user by Gavin
I have a network that has XP and Vista on it. If any of the vista machines try and open a file that is already opened on another machine vista hangs until the file has been closed. If an XP machine tries to open a file already open on another machine you see the dialog box "the already open do you want top open as read only". What could be causing this?

printer sharing via home network with Win7, WinXP, & Vista by No Name

When I File/Print and select the appropriate printer name from the dropdown list, the printing is fully successful. Attempting to apply the same steps with the Vista laptop fails. The printer...

Question about using Robocopy or RichCopy over a home network by Charlie Hoffpauir
First disclaimer... I'me really a network novice. I've used XXCOPY and Robocopy to successfully back up entire volumes to an eSATA connected drive, but when I try to do the same to a newly acquired NAS drive, it doesn't work right. Instead of copying "only" the files that are new (or changed since the last backup), Robocopy copies every file over again. And XXCOPY (free version) won't copy at...
