Windows 7 File Sharing - Page 2

Nope. I am part of the group now but I cannot see any of the folders and under homegroup I don't see PC1 or PC2 on either system.

Still I made ground in at least making the homegroup

What I would try to do is, now that you have the services running and you have the Homegroup made; is to leave the Homegroup and then disable the Homegroup. This should bring you back to where the other interface is.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with Homegroups, as sharing folders is usually so easy (as you know from before this small fiasco! ).

Have you checked to make sure each PC has an IP on the same subnet?

So if I disable the homegroup what are the steps to make the 1 folder on both PC1 and PC2 usable? I don't really care how it happens, just so long as it happens lol.

By subnet you mean 192.168.1.101 / 102 / 103? If so then yes. PC1 is 101 and PC2 is 103.

Ah then both are 255.255.255.0. Thank you tipless.


Also I have disabled the homegroup. Whats next? I did notice one thing though under "network" I see my Tomato Firmware Router and all 3 PCs on my network. It asks for logins for the other 2 systems but I never put any passwords on those systems. It does appear to lead to files however when I click my PC which allows me access.

So now that you have the Homegroup disabled, are you able to open up the Network sharing options that I posted earlier?

No it didn't help so I thought of another idea. I found a solution that works. I ended up enabling Homegroup again and logging both PCs into it. I then disabled password and made a folder on each PC. I shared it under "everybody" and allowed read/write.

Oddly enough it worked and I can access both PCs 1 folder through network options. Don't ask me why it worked but it ended up working. I found this out while looking at the Network tab under "homegroup", it showed all 3 of my computers so from there I toyed around till it worked.

Thank you very much for all your help. You pointed me in the proper direction and it took a day but it looks good. Thank you

*edit*
BTW only issue I see is the folder "Users" is also shared and I cannot keep it private. There anyway to do this or is that because the file I am sharing is on my desktop?

Glad to hear its working via Homegroups.

I would try disabling sharing on that particular folder, unless that option isn't available.

Yeah, after I got done editing the post I went and disabled it at the actual user folder. Before I was disabling it inside the network folder which didn't work it seems


Thanks again for all your time and help Ganja
