I have recently set up a home network consisting of 2 machines on w2000 Pro & OS. They ping each other but do not find each other in browse for folder / select a shared network folder when trying to map a drive. they are both in the same workgroup. Any clues as to why i cannot map a drive and/ or share a drive??

Does each pc have a different name?

Have you set a drive or folder to share on each pc?

Have you told the firewalls to allow traffic to and from the network addresses?

After posting my original thread i did some digging around and found that file and printer sharing component wasn't installed on 2nd machine. Installed and i can map and share no probs now! Cheers anyway :0)
