O.K., here I go. I have 4 XP Pro boxes all have SP3 and work on the network just fine sharing and using my network printer. Now I have a Win7 Ultimate PC (got it for x-mas) and I can get it to see any of my XP boxes. I donâ€™t consider myself a networking guru, but Iâ€™m not an amateur at this either. MS seems to have made this WAY more difficult than it needed to be. I have spent many hours sifting though posts that seem to be close to my issue, but nothing I have tried seems to make any difference. My virus software has been removed and the firewalls turned off. I have made sure that all the services that some of the posts indicated needed to be on are on. I can however remote desktop into one of my XP boxes via its IP but not its name. Maybe something there, donâ€™t know. I would greatly appreciate any help that anyone could give me, and thanks in advance for just taking the time to read my ranting. Signed Totally frustrated with MS!!!
