XP desktop cannot see Win7 Laptop - BUT- Win 7 laptop CAN see XP desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I looked in other forums, not getting exactly answer to fix my problem.  My XP desktop cannot see Win7 Laptop - BUT-  Win 7 laptop CAN see XP desktop.   With my Win 7 laptop I can read, write, all my files on the desktop.  Win 7 laptop does not show up at all on my "network places" in Xp desktop

    All files on both have been shared, work group name matches, etc. 

    What am I missing?

  •   Make sure that in Windows 7 Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled. ( Network Sharing Center | NIC Properties | Change Adapter settings | Properties | Internet Protocol v4 | Properties | Advanced | WINS tab). XP relies on Netbios names for browsing.
