    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to connect my old Dell Optiplex [Windows 2000 Professional] to my Acer Aspire laptop [Windows 7]. I have what I need to do so... An Ethernet crossover cable.

    I have connected the desktop to a different laptop months ago, but it was a random occurrence. No idea how it happened.

    I can only get the laptop to appear on the desktop's network thing and can see/ use shared files. I can't do the same on the laptop's side.

    Please, somebody, give me a step-by-step process. I can do an intricate one. What I need these machines to do is: appear on each other's network, share files, and share internet [laptop gets wireless - would give destop it through LAN].

    Thanks!

    Apparently you already have file sharing enabled on the Windows 7. Here's how to do it on the Windows 2k Professional.

    The following will set up a Microsoft Workgroup for File and Printer Sharing assuming the PCs are already networked via router, ad-hoc wireless or Ethernet (directly or using switch or hub).

    In Network and Dial-up Connections (Win 2k Pro) or Network Connections (XP) right click on your connection and select ‘Properties.’ If not already there, install or add a check mark for “Client for Microsoft Networks, “File and Printer sharing …” and “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).”

    Right click on My Computer, select Properties, and on the Computer Name tab make sure you have a unique computer name and the workgroup name that you want to use for all computers. Change if necessary.

    Restart the PC.

    You must uninstall or properly configure any non-Windows firewalls (security suites) on each machine.

    If using the XP SP2/SP3 firewall: Control Panel – Windows Firewall – on the General tab it should be “On” and on the Exceptions tab “File and Printer Sharing” should be selected. (When using this PC on a public network set it to “No Exceptions.”)

    The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

    When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (up to 15 minutes) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers.

    When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

    I got it to share. I can see my laptop on the 2000 desktop. I can share files from the desktop to a folder on my laptop and use them.

    I cannot see my desktop on my laptop. How can I do that? I can see everyone else on my network [public].

    As for the firewall configuration: I don't have any installed on the desktop (is there a default one?). And on the laptop, I have AVG Free Edition 2011. I don't think it has a firewall. How do I configure that to allow my LAN desktop-laptop connection. Or how do I configure Windows Firewall to do that.

    And, finally, how do I share the internet from the laptop to the desktop.

    Thanks for the help.

    When I talk about "see" w.r.t. computers and networking I mean "ping by IP address." Is that what you mean? If not, please specify in detail. If you cannot ping the Win 2k Pro machine by IP address it is probably a firewall issue.

    Are you saying that Windows 7 is designating your intra-computer LAN as public? If so, I don't understand how the other machine can "see" it.

    If your wireless connection is to a router usually the best way to give internet access to the desktop is by bridging the connections, as etaf has posted. He also asked you a question in that post.

    Oh, let me clarify.

    I'm on a public network in my dorm. It's wireless. I cannot connect an ethernet cable to the router [50 ft that-a-way]. I'm connecting the two computers via LAN mainly to give the desktop internet. Note: this type of thing is allowed by my school's administration.

    When I say see, I mean: go to network in my start menu and when I look at the window that displays the computers on the network, I cannot see the desktop. It should come up as its name as an icon there.

    I'm not experienced with ping. I know about the action, but haven't done it.

    I have bridged the connection a few minutes ago. I believe the LAN was on public.

    For my bridge status, there's internet on the IPV4, and no network access on the IPV6.

    And, just to clear up my goals: access both computers' shared folders from one-another, and successfully give internet from my wireless on my laptop, through a LAN to my desktop.

    Dang, it sounds like you've done everything correctly. Both PCs are in the same workgroup, right? If you need to check this right click on Computer (or My Computer) - Properties. The pages are a little different for the 2 systems, but you will find the Workgroup designation there. I think Windows 7 defaults to "WORKGROUP" and I do not know about the other one.

    Switch the ethernet cable end to end and see if any symptoms change. This suggestion is in case of a defect in the cable that affects communication in one direction only.

    Following is what I call a low level communication test.

    To open a Command Window: Start - Run – cmd (command in 98SE) – OK
    (if Run not on Vista’s or 7’s Start menu, just type cmd in the Search box)

    To determine a computer's IP address: open a Command Window and type
    ipconfig

    Now for some troubleshooting:

    1. On each PC open a Command window and type
    ping IPofOther (where IPofOther is the IP address of the other PC)

    Do you get Replies, or do you get packets lost?

    If you got Replies,

    2. Do the same ping except use the Computer Name of the other computer:
    ping NameOfOtherPC

    Replies or lost packets?

    If you got Replies to either or both,

    3. Then
    Start - Run - \\IPofOther - OK

    With luck after about a minute you should get an explorer window showing the other PC's shares. If not, what is the error message?

    Ok.

    So, I pinged the desktop from the laptop. I did the IP and the computer name. Nothing was lost.
    I pinged the IP of the laptop from the desktop. Nothing lost. I then pinged the name of the laptop and got "unknown host..."

    Following that: on the laptop I did - Run \\ [IP address of desktop] - then got that Windows could not access it. Error0x80070035 The network path was not found.

    I did - Run \\ [IP address of laptop] - It successfully went through. I can access the shared files of that.

    Note: this is after I switched the ends of the cable. I'm going to try it the other way.

    Ok.

    So I put the cable back the way it was before.
    Let me tell you everything:

    I can see in My Network Places - Computers Near Me both my desktop and my laptop (as icons) on the Windows 2000 desktop.
    I cannot see in Network the icon for my desktop or for my own laptop.

    I ping from both computers the IP addresses of the other. Both are getting through and lose nothing.
    I ping the name of my desktop from my laptop. I get through and lose nothing.
    I ping the name of my laptop from my desktop and get the message "Unknown host ...".
    I run - \\ [IP address of desktop] in my laptop. I get the error code: 0x80070035 and the message "The network path was not found. "
    I run - \\ [IP address of laptop] from my desktop and get an explorer window with the shared folders from my laptop in it.

    Can you spot the issue?
    And thanks so far. Your helping a lot.

    And let me add - In the desktop under Computers Near Me, where I see both machines, I cannot double click the laptop [name/ icon] and access the shared files. I get the message that the network path was not found. But I can access them still if I run the IP.

    Those results seem inconsistent to me. I don't mean that I don't understand what you are reporting and I am not thinking that you are doing anything wrong. The results just aren't adding up for me.

    From the deep recesses of my mind is coming up the thought/memory that Win 2k Pro and Windows 7 do not file share well. I do not, however, remember the exact issue. Maybe something will come to me later, but I've got nothing to offer now.

    Maybe we'll see a clue if you post the following for both PCs.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following commands:

    nbtstat -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    Based on me looking over this, I think it has something to do with NetBIOS or DHCP. It says on my laptop in the IPConfig that DHCP is disabled, but when I look for that in my adapter settings, it says that it is enabled.

    When I saw that in your original post I assumed (and probably etaf did also) that you were connected to your router and, hence, had a private IP address. Seeing that the desktop has a public IP address it is obvious that I was wrong.

    You do not want to file share on a public network--and Windows 7 will resist that--so you will need to remove the bridge that we told you to create and use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) instead. Sorry for the bum steer.

    I followed the ICS steps, but I'm still not getting internet on my desktop. I shared my wireless connection. My LAN is getting no internet. My desktop can't share files and won't detect my laptop.

    Could you please walk me through this/ help me troubleshoot? I followed the instructions on the link.
    Thanks.
