Windows cant talk to each other!!!!!!!!

By akalinowski ·
I have about 20 stores w/ 2 windows XP workstations in each for POS, the software i use is called retail pro, the program is installed on wks1 and wks2 needs to connect to wks1 to run the program.

i got a call today, one of my stores cant get thier systems to talk to each other, i checked every thing i could think of, Firewall, etc etc...

try editing the host file. it is in the "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc" folder. open the hosts file with note pad and add this line to each pc's host file. hit tab key wks1
^ ^
this is your other pc"S ip... and machine name
this line would go on wks2
vice versa for wks1 tab key wks2
