Default Cannot see 1 of 3 computers

Chuck-
Sorry again for the delay -- my daughter called from San Francisco, and
wanted to talk about a job. She just graduated from the CIA cooking school
in NY and is just now getting around to going to work.

But back to my problem(s):

When I type \\ron on either of the B (pavilion) or C (claudette) computers,
a window pops up with the shared files from computer A (ron). The window is
kind of funny -- it is a cross between a Windows Explorer window and an
Internet Explorer window. It has the looks of Windows Explorer with Back,
Forward, Search, Folders, Views and the Menu options look the same, and it
also has a Left pane that alternates/toggles between folders and text like
Network Tasks, Other Places, etc. -- but it also has the Internet Explorer
things like the line of Links, but no Home, Refresh, Stop, etc.

When you click on the Folders icon, you get folders in the left pane, the
folders look and act just like the Windows Explorer folders list, with
Network Places and everything else. This is the "only" place that the Ron
computer icon appears, with the Shared Ron files under the icon. Almost
exactly what you see under pavilion or claudette, except that the name of the
computer is the Ron "Computer description" followed by the "(ron)" -- see
previous post.

Again, this is the only window it shows up in. Ron doesn't appear in other
Windows Explorer windows on the same computer and if you bring up another
Windows Explorer, it doesn't appear there either -- nor does it appear on the
other computer. Both computers, pavilion or claudette, work the same --
\\ron brings up the Ron computer folders in a new window, but only there.

However, there "is" access to the Ron computer, beyond just the Folders that
appear under the Ron computer icon (in Network Places). When I click on the
Shared Docs-Shared Pictures-Sample Pictures under the Ron icon -- I can see
a sample picture that I renamed on the Ron computer.

Chuck,
With all my checks and changes, the network seems to kind of drift in and
out of operation -- but always in response to something I have done -- but
always recoverable. Possible when I was getting Path not Found, it was one
of the times when the network wasn't really quite working.

But now,

\\ron seems to be running on both computers B & C. It takes a while for the
screen to come up, but a window pops up with

"Ron's Computer -- 11/26/04 - 1GMem, 200G HD - $979.00 (ron)"

in the Blue Window Frame at the top of the window. (This is the Computer
description in Ron, except for the (ron) at the end.) Also, I didn't notice
this before because the window pops up with the verbage on the left side of
the screen, but when I click on the folders, and see the folders breakdown on
the left, I see the Ron computer under the Network Places\....\Mshome\, (with
the name above) along with claudette and pavilion.

Also, under the computer name, I see an Apple IIe folder (an emulator - my
son's work), a Shared Docs folder and a Printers and Faxes icon. That seems
correct, as I marked the Apple IIe as shared, since I knew it didn't exist on
the other computers and it would therefore help me to know I was looking at
the Ron computer.

This should be an important clue, shouldn't it.


Ron,

So the current symptom is simply that Ron doesn't show up in Network Places,
until you manually do "\\Ron", at which time it opens up in the pop-up window,
then mysteriously shows up in Network Places?

How long can you see Ron in Network Places after that? When does this stop
working?

If you do this from Pavilion, how about you check Network Places on Claudette,
and see what shows? Vice versa?

Let's look at browstat information for each computer, again.
Start - Run - "cmd". Type "browstat status c:\browstat.txt" into the command
window - Open Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is NOT checked!, Open
c:\browstat.txt, copy and paste into your next post.

Ron,

OK, we're getting close to the point where we need to do more direct
communication, and send files back and forth. We can't do binaries in the group
either.

My email address is below (please don't state it here, just email me). If you
wish, you can IM me - I have both MSN Messenger and Yahoo IM accounts.

When you do "\\ron", is claudette and pavilion in the folder tree anywhere near
ron? What if you do "\\pavilion" from Ron and Claudette? What workgroup are
the three computers in?

I see that Claudette has now elected itself a master browser, so it isn't seeing
the other 2 computers, or wasn't when browstat was run. What shows up in
Network Places on Claudette?

Default Cannot see 1 of 3 computers

Chuck,

When I do \\ron on either the pavilion or claudette, a new window pops up
with the Ron computer in it. Sorry about the babling over the hybrid
Windows/Internet Explorer window in my earlier post -- the window poping up
is a Windows Explorer window, it just had a different View set up.

OK, back to what I see. On pavilion or claudette, I see a normal folder
tree, with all 3 computers showing up under the Windows default Workgroup
name of Mshome (told you I didn't change much). All three computers are
there just as you/I would want them to be. On both computers, I see
Claudette, Pavilion and Ron, and I see the shared folders underneath. The
only difference in the folder tree is that the Ron computer had the long
Computer description name from Ron on it, instead of just Ron.

When I Run //pavilion on claudette, I just get the Window Explorer with
Claudette and Pavilion in the folder tree -- and if I just do //claudette on
the pavilion, I also just get the Windows Explorer with Claudette and
Pavilion in the folder tree. These are the same results as if I just brought
up Windows Explorer. And repeating, if I do the \\ron on either of these
computers, I get all 3 computers in the folder tree.

On Ron, Running either \\pavilion or \\claudette, the Windows Explorer comes
up with both Claudette and Pavilion in the folder tree -- just as if I had
brought up Windows Explorer. When I Ran \\ron on Ron, the window just pops
up with all 3 computers in it, just as it acts on the other 2 computers. And
the Ron computer is labeled as the other computers -- with the Computer
description on Ron instead of just Ron -- otherwise everything else is
working as on the other computers.

I do have a problem updating the Claudette folder tree -- sometimes long
pauses and occasionally an "access not available" error message, but I can
click it again and it eventually comes back, after a long pause. That only
happens with Claudette -- which I attribute to the flakey wireless connection
that I have. The same happens on the //pavilion computer, and on the
claudette computer, I also see delays when looking at pavilion or ron, also
attributed to the wireless connection. Updates between Ron and Pavilion, the
wired guys, are very fast. If I got is right, pm on its way.

Chuck,

As a quick follow-up -- when I Run the \\ron command on any of the
computers, the Windows Explorer window comes up with Ron added to the
workgroup (MSHOME) folder list -- and Ron "only" appears in that window. It
doesn't magically appear in any other open Windows Explorer windows and if I
bring up a new Windows Explorer window, Ron isn't there either. But it does
stay firmly in the one window brought up by the //ron command, and behaves
like any of the other computer folders under the Mshome workgroup.

As another quick note, I don't know how close we are on this, and I really
appreciate all of the work you have put in on this. I don't do a lot of file
sharing (just doing a lot now because of trying to move files to the new
computer), so the solution you have given me is quite acceptable as a
workaround (as long as that operation continues to work). So I will leave it
up to you as to how much time you want to expend on this problem. I am in
for the duration and would like to understand what is happening here -- and
so would like to continue this to the end, if we are getting close -- but
will not be upset if you want to bail out. You have done a teriffic job in
getting me to this point.

Ron

I had a similar problem would you mind telling me all virus protection and
firewall software you have on the computer that files cannot be seen? Let me
know whetehr they enabled or disabled too.

Ron,

You're running Teredo Tunneling, aka IPV6, on Computers B & C. Do you need
access to IPV6 addresses?

Please start by un installing IPV6, aka Advanced Networking, from the list of
items under Local Area Connection Properties. You only need the following items
in the list:
Client for Microsoft Networks
File and Printer Sharing For Microsoft Networks
QoS Packet Scheduler (optional)
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

If you need IPV6, you can install it later. After you get file sharing working.

After removing IPV6, please rerun "ipconfig /all" and post again.

Chuck
