Could use some help with this one. My Vista machine does not see my WD box’s shares unless there is a windows7 machine on the network.
My configurations is
WINDOWS 7 Server
Windows Vista Laptop
all machines are wired ethernet to hub
Recently I noticed that when I do not have the Windows7 machine on, the Vista machine cannot see the WD boxes on the network. It see them as the web login icons but not as computers that I can connect to and view the drives.
Turn on the windows7 machine and voila, they appear in my network group. I can then shut off the windows7 machine and I still see and have access to the WD boxes.
I do not recall having this issue in the past, but it’s hard to tell as most often the windows7 server is on (using it for a download box)
Anyone have any thoughts on this issue. Sometype of workgroup setting? I cant imagine why I would need a win7 box to get the netbios names of my wd boxes.
As a side note, prior to having a livehub I do not recall ever having this issue with just the liveplus
Thanks in advance
