  • Not able to detect PC in same LAN, Office LAN

    Hi all,

    I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but i desperately need help to get this weird problem resolved.

    I have seven computers in my network, two xp pro machines, one win2k, two windows me and one windows 98se.

    I have problem in one of the Windows Me machines by which the machine is able to see and access all the other computers in the same network, but other computers in the same network can't see it. It's weird to me, i've check the DNS and gateway settings, all seems to be correct. Is there any invisible mode in Windows ME that i've activated? hmm...

    Please help me guys. Thank y'all in advance.

    Turn off your Firewall, and try to Ping your PC's IP Address.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      i tried turning firewall off, but still not able to connect to the Window Me machine. but when i tried to ping, i could reach the IP address assigned to the machine. hmm...... What should i do? if there's no solution, i guess i will re-install windows for the system

        You are saying that the Machine is replying, but you can't Connect to it.
        What do you mean exactly by "Connecting to it"?

        Shared Folder / Remote Desktop Connection....what?

        And provide me with the Error Message if applicable

          it's a weird problem anyway.

          yes, when i ping, the system returned the ping. but when i try to access to the shared folder in the Windows Me machine, i couldn't. I've checked the properties of the network card, 'file and printer sharing' has been added. I think it's weird. This computer uses same network settings as the other Me machine, the other computer is fine, only this machine has the problem. Weird......

          help me pls... Thanks

            When you are trying to Access the Shared Folder, what is the message you get?

              Check your permissions on your shared folder.
