    Basically I have having this problem on both computers I want to share. When i type in the ip of the pc I want to connect to, I get the following error:

    Then when i press Diagnose I am prompted with the following error message:

    So I thought it had something to do with file and printer sharing not being enabled, but when i try to enable it, i get 'RPC Server Unavailable" as below:

    ***********************************
    After searching the net for ages (it seemed like), I have not been able to find a solid solution, I have been told to make sure RPC server is running, which it is, Net TCP/IP helper is running, and when i ping the IP address of the computer, it does comeback with a result, so i know the computer can see it. I am thinking it has something to do with the firewall (which i should mention, i have tried with e firewall enabled, and disabled).

    Can anyone shed some light on what could be wrong?

    Thanks,
    Kaashif

    Ok, here is some more information, when i try to star the net share, by excuting the command "NET SHARE" in dos, I get the following error:


    The Server service is not started
    Is it OK to start it? (Y/N) [Y]: y
    System Error 1068 has occured.

    The dependency service or group failed to start.

    Does this mean anything to anyone?
