    windows firewall shouldn't block this but norton/symantec security is a bugger for it

    As YvTech says more info required.

    However check to make sure all workgroup Pc's share the same name.

    The chances are that a firewall is blocking you seeing the 'drive', this will either be the Windows XP firewall, the router firewall or a software security firewall (such as nortons etc....) or all three.

    Can you give more detail. When you say you cannot share the drive? What happens if you create a folder on that drive and try to share the folder instead of the drive? Any error messages? what exactly is happening.
    Regards

Not Sharing pc for win 7


It may be because of the workgroup setting. WINXP uses a default workgroup value of MSHOME. WIN7 uses a default of WORKGROUP. What happens then is that all computers can connect to the network and access the internet, but shared files and folders will not be seen due to the two different workgroups,

To change the workgroup in WIN 7:

Click START.

Right click on COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES.

In the SYSTEM window, choose ADVANCED SYSTEM SETTINGS

in the SYSTEM PROPERTIES window choose the COMPUTER NAME tab.

Observe "Workgroup" name.
To change, click the CHANGE button

Put the new workgroup name in the WORKGROUP block
(WINXP default is MSHOME)

Click OK

Close all windows

You will need to restart PC to set the new workgroup

I would like to share files between two computers


There are several things you need in order to share files between two computers on a network:

1. You should both be in the same "workgroup" , in Win 7 it's called "homegroup"

2. You also need to have "file and printer sharing" enabled under your network connection properties

3. AND you also need to set the drives/folders or files you wish to share to "sharing" /"share as" in order to give permission to access

Note that with Windows 7 files that are to be shared can only be easily accessed under USER, PUBLIC folder. On older OS you can set most any drive and folder to a SHARE

To instruct you how to do these things I need to know what operating systems you have on the machines you wish to share files on.

Basically if both the laptop and the PC can access the Internet at the same time then you have working network with the laptop and PC.
First make sure the laptop and PC have the same Workgroup name (it may already have Workgroup as the Workgroup name, you can change it if you wish). To change the Workgroup name open Control Panel - System - click on Computer Name tab - click Change and you can change the Computer name then select Workgroup and enter or change the Workgroup name - click OK and OK again.
Next enable Sharing on both the PC and laptop open My Computer - right click on the C Drive - click on Sharing tab - tick Sharing this folder on the network - add a Share name to identify the computer/folder (eg C drive on PC).
If you do not enable sharing on the drives or folders then they will not be available to the computers on the network.
If you have more drives,them repeat this for the other hard drive and or CD or DVD drives.
Re-boot the computers and you will be able to see the comuters on your network through My Network Places.

HP 3100 LaserJet All-in-one Print Driver for Vista OS


It doesn't work in share mode either...It prints the pages incorrectly. I have the hp3100 connected to my xp pc and my vista laptop connects to it via printer sharing on my network. the xp prints fine but the vista doesn't print ok due to lack of driver support for it.

I have to resort to print to pdf and then take the pdf to my xp for printing. Its a half *** solution but if anybody out there made his/her own driver please post.
