    Alrighty, I have an 8.1 that refuses to see the XP connected to the same workgroup. The XP can see the 8.1 but requires a username and psw, though I have no idea what those could be.

    There is also a windows 7 involved but it's having no issues seeing anything.

    The 8.1 is being stubborn. I've turned all the sharing options in the network properties to the settings for a network, (ie, no psw needed, file sharing turned on, etc).

    I can ping the XP computer from the 8.1

    Again I just can't see or access it.

    What can I do?
