Hi All,

I have 2 pcs networked and sharing a cable modem. Both can connect to the internet and the IP is DHCP controlled but I can't browse the files on either machine from the other ? Can anyone help me?

Have you enabled file and printer sharing?

I'll check thanx.

Forgot to ask....where do I check file and print sharing?

What operating systems are you using?

  bliksem 18:34 14 Sep 2003

Its XP pro....I checked the network properties and there is file and printer sharing for MS networks

What else could it be ?

Can you see the other machine in my network places?

  bliksem 18:43 14 Sep 2003

No I can't and I think its cos the IP addresses are very different (DHCP controlled for BY connection).

Are you on the same work group?

try renewing the ip.

they both should be similar to 192.168.*.*
