cant browse for windows 2000

by maxwell edison In reply to cant browse for windows 2 ...

Computers that DO NOT have File and Print Sharing enabled do NOT appear in the browse list.

When File and Print Sharing is disabled or not installed, the Server service does NOT bind to the NetBios interface. If the computer becomes a backup browser, it is unable to share out the browse list to clients.

Any computer that is to be included in a browse list must have File and Print Sharing enabled.

Good luck,

Maxwell
