    [RESOLVED] Trouble seeing the server

    Hi All,

    I have a windows server 2003 enterprise machine and I can map a network drive to my Windows Vista machine no problem.

    Going the other way Vista can see the Windows Server Machine since it appears in it's networks, but when I click on it or attempt to map a network drive the other way, it cannot do it.

    I have set the system to be in a 'workgroup' as opposed to a domain. I have created a user on both systems with the same username/password combination and given them both Administrator privilages. I have also created shares to both 'C' drives. My Windows Server 2003 is created as a Virtual Machine Using VMWare 6.5.

    I dont understand why My Vista Machine (Host of the VM) cannot map.

    Re: Trouble seeing the server

    Ok, Not sure why this worked, but it did.

    On the Vista Machine, I temporarily disabled IPv6. and came out completely. Vista then didn't even see the Server. I then went to IPv4 and noticed that it had set a static IP address. I reset this to automatic and re-enabled IPv6.

    Suddenly it all kicked in.Strange.
