WHS can not be manually added to network places. Unable to use. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all, Please help if you can. Im running XP with a new HP WHS. Install seemed to go fine, but my server does NOT show up in network places. I tried to add it manually, but it always says basically: 'can not find folder'. I can not use my server. I just expected this to plug and play like an external USB drive. Now I've already spent hours researching and troubleshooting to no avail. It just does not show up.
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
    Nathan.

  • There's a shortcut to your server's shares on your desktop. Does that allow you access to the shares? If so, there's nothing wrong. Windows Home Server is probably just not in the same workgroup as your home computers.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
