Check to see if Internet Firewall built into XP is on, that's what our problem was in same scenario -----Original Message----- From: pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pctech-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gary Kuznitz Sent: Tuesday, September 02, 2003 1:53 PM To: PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users Subject: Re: [PcTech] Mapping Netwrrk drive problems in XP Pro Hi Rob, Because you say you can see the IFS with a Win'95 PC it sounds like you have the IFS shared on the 400 accessible to a user. I'm hoping you are using the same user on XP. Because you can't see the IFS from XP I'd like to know if you can see the other PC? It sounds like a problem on your XP PC. Did you name your XP PC? Do you have other communications running on the XP PC? Is it connected and running on a LAN? Can you see any other PC's from the XP PC? Can any other PC's see the XP PC? Do you have file and printer sharing turned on on the XP PC?
