Q. I have a new PC with Vista installed and am having a few problems with networking it. Is it easy to set up a network between XP and Vista?
Yes, but there are a few differences between the two:
Make sure that both XP and Vista's workgroup names are the same.
In XP, the default shared
folders name is: Shared Docs
Copy and paste between the
two is a simple task.
A. Network Discovery set to ON
B. File Sharing is set to ON
C. Public Folder Sharing is set to ON
D. Password Protected Sharing is set to OFF
Many have reported not being able to connect with Norton 360 installed on their systems. I have also seen this and have a work around for it which will be in a future newsletter. Be sure to disable Norton's firewall and turn the Windows firewall on instead.
