I have created an account to share files on a Windows 7 computer (C:\Users\share), and have mounted this directory as drive N:\ on other Windows XP computers (3), and the 7 computer (for convenience).
For simplicity, I will call:
- the Windows 7 computer (a Samsung Sens R410) "7",
- the 1st Windows XP (Samsung Sens N145 Plus) "XP1",
- the 2nd Windows XP (Fujitsu C1320) "XP2",
- and the 3rd (Dell Vostro 1310) "XP3".
XP1, 2, and 3 can see 7 and each other, and therefore can use N:\ without problems, and can access each others' files.
The problem comes when 7 tries to access XP 1, 2, or 3.
In Network, when 7 clicks on XP1, 2, or 3, it cannot access it.
My primary goal was to make the connection available XP -> 7 and vice versa, because XP1 has all printers connected to it, and theoretically, print remotely.
Is there any fix?
Note 1: I am not sure if I have turned on printer sharing on XP1.
Note 2: The printers are:
I am DEFINITELY sure that I have the HP printer installation disk, and not sure if I have the Brother printer disk.
Note 3: All computers are on the same workgroup, but the name is not in English (just wrote this if this could have an effect.)
