I my self am having the same issue being I do not TRUST VISTA I will follow up on this post and let you know when I figure it out I have a feeling its Windows Defender.... part of it... I havenít had much time to play with it more but I will let you know what I find out. In the mean time I was able to make one of my PC's with XP on it, Share a folder and Vista pick that up there for moving Files back and forth. Might consider that for time being?

I can probably help you, just retype your problem because I had a hard time figuring out what exactly the problem was!

I got my XP machine to look into my Vista machine, but Vista refuses to look into the XP machine. I installed Microsoft LLTD Responder on the XP machine as per Microsoft. It still does not work.

I am also looking for the Vista driver for an old Epson ActionLaser1500.

Same happened to me, except it was the XP computer that couldn't look into the Vista one.

Try downloading and installing Microsoft LLTD Responder. It helped my XP machine look into the Vista machine.

Ok I'll give that a shot...

When I tried to download LLTD Responder, I got an error message saying, "Not enough storage is available to proccess this command." What did I do wrong?!

Lol oops, nevermind. I tried to download it on the Vista, not the XP. I installed the program on all of the XPs, and the map works fine. Thanks!

Oh and the map didn't put my printer on there. Do you know how I can go about doing that?

Start by making sure the printer is shared and that you can connect to it by typing \\machinename and right click on the printer and hit connect

see if that works and reply

Nope didn't work. Maybe it's because my printer is an ethernet printer. Not sure, but maybe that helps...

can you ping other machines from the vista machine? (to do this incase you are unsure go to start, run, cmd, ping hostname) i would ping it by its name first, this will check it can resolve your computers names, if this does not work, try by ip address (get this by going start run cmd ipconfig) on applicable computers! should be 4 sent, 4 received, if not, sufin funny about vista :)

Yeah, everything works. Even the printer pings, but still doesn't show up. Maybe it's because the printer is meant for XP (or I think, not sure). The printer is an HP Officejet 6300, just incase any of you were wondering.

I downloaded it, but it said there was a "Fatal error". It said it was because of the software that it couldn't download or something. The printer still doesn't show up on the map. Is it because it's an Ethernet printer?

I have the same problem, all of the machines at my network are using Windows XP and when I try to see them with my Vista laptop I got nothing, I cannot see other machines except the ones with Vista as well.

I also want to add a printer but it does not see something around the network. Does someone knows which is the problem and how can I solve it?

I tried also to make a ping to the other machines at the network and I got no response.

Thanks!
