My computers are not seeing each other in Network Neighborho
Posted 16 February 2002 - 02:05 AM
The 1st computer name is 'HAL9000' and the second computer name is 'SAL9000'. I know....stupid.
Anyway, I cannot locate the computer by computer name.
I can however find the computer if I search by IP.
Start -> Find Files or Folders -> Computer
Both are connected via a Linksys router. The Linksys router is connected to my cable modem.
I have TCP/IP and Client for Microsoft Networks on both computers. I have both computers set up as part of a workgroup named 'workgroup'
Everyone agrees that my problem is a problem of name resolution. Some people think I may have a problem with WINS. I have spoken to just about anyone with no results. Does anyone have any idea what I might be missing.

try this site for ICS in windows 2000
One other thing, does your router have a firewall? If so you might have to forward the ports, disable the firewall etc...

It was my firewall, Blackice Defender.
In BlackIce, if you got to 'tools -> Edit Blackice settings...', you will see a checkbox for:
'Allow NetBIOS Neighborhood'
This has to be checked on all computers running Blackice. I am surprised more people do not have this problem because the program default is to have it unchecked. YEAH!
