    Networking problems


    I'm totaly stuck.
    I have 2 PCs @ home. One running W2k with Internet connection and printer, the other running WinXP wanting to access printer and Internet.
    So, I did a conection sharing (the one which is build into W2k) and it works perfectly fine.
    WinXP even installed the Printer without asking me a thing.
    That was yesterday...
    Today I can't access the W2k machine at all - internet still works. I was able to see it in the workgroup the other day - today its gone...
    What is going wrong here?
    Any help would be appreciated!!!!!

    best regards

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    What happens if you request \\win2k (where win2k is name of your gateway) from my computer or ie? You still are able to surf the net, right?
    And you know I mean that.

    OK, I figured what was wrong here.
    My wife (the W2k machine) installed a firewall (ZoneAlarm) and only today asked me what this netbios is the firewall blocks all the time...figure!
    After that I was able to see that my PC for some weird reason still was in the workgroup called "workgroup" (I swear I changed that a million times!)
    What can I say, now everything works fine!

    Thank you anyway!

    sorry for the trouble and
    best regards
