  • by default computer browser service is not started in windows 2008 server. Please go to the services and start the computer browser services and it should show you all the list of computers  connected on network.

  • Hello,

    enable NetBios over TCP/IP on the NCI settings and start the browser service in the services.msc. This service is not started by default in Windows server 2008 and higher OS. If you need network browsing over subnets you have to use a WINS server.
