If anyone is looking for a challenge, I think I might have it for you. First I'll describe the current LAN config.
A; 1 Desktop PC (Windows XP Pro SP3)
B; 1 Desktop PC (Windows XP Home SP2)
C; 1 Notebook PC (Windows Vista Ultimate SP1)
D; 1 Notebook PC (Windows Vista Home Premium SP1)
E; Wireless/Wired Linksys Router WRT54G
Here are the conditions that exist:
All devices belong to the same Workgroup
A; has a shared folder and printer
B; has a shared printer
C; has a shared folder and printer
Here are the success and failure issues:
All devices can ping the Router
All devices can ping B
A CAN connect to the shared printer on B
A can NOT see the shared folder on C
A can NOT ping C
C CAN connect to the printer on B
C can NOT see the shared folder or printer on A
C can NOT ping A
Sorry for the confusing way I presented this but I really couldn't see another way to do it.
Constants in play:
All the above conditions have been attempted with Windows Firewall both on and off
All the above conditions have been attempted before and after McAfee Security Center was installed on C
All the above Devices now have SpyBot Search & Destroy installed and McAfee Security Center installed
If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
