    homeserver sees the 2 laptops in the workgroup and the laptops sees the server.

    however, the server does not see the stationary pc and the stationary does not see the server.

  • I compared the settings with ipconfig /all.

    For some reason the netbios was disabled on the computer

    im manually assigning the adresses.

  • Chris,

    How are you supplying the IP addresses to the boxes?

    It would be as well, initially, to run 'ipconfig /all' both on a working client or server, and then on the unseen pc. Check that all the details are similar as far as range/gateway etc. are concerned.

    You have the Connector software installed satisfactorily on all the boxes?
