PC Not seen in Network Neighborhood

By jpreddy ·
We have a LAN with Windows systems. We find that a couple of systems are NOT VISIBLE in Network neighborhood from other stations. But, from these systems, we can see all other systems. I am unable to understand this behaviour.

Can anybody advise why it is happening and how I can make them visible from other systems in Network Neighborhood?

Hi,

Without knowing the OSs involved, there are two general answers to your problem.

1. The two systems aren't running all the reqired protocols. You need a netbios transport to make them seen in the network neighbourhood.

2. There is a router or some other network component between those PCs and the rest of the LAN that doesn't allow the required protocol through.

If you're a bit more specific about what OSs are involved and give us some idea of that networking components might be involved, we'll be able to give you a more specific answer...

Cheers,
Tim.

As Tim answered - depends on your Operating System, Windows 98 will not display objects with names over eight characters long, where as Windows NT / 2000 will display it.

Open the properties page of the local area connection. Make sure the "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" has been checked.

I've had this problem and this is the fix, as long as all the other settings are correct.

Yeh It did the trick. Somehow we have been ignoring this aspect
