Connecting to workgroup

Hi,

 

I'm trying to share file between my home computers (one is WIFI, the other LAN) but I can't connect the LAN based one, error code 0x80070035.

 

I am also prevented from creating or joining a workgroup. It tels me that my network connection must have IPv6 enabled. How can I enable this setting?

 

Both computers run windows 7

 

Thanks

Re: Connecting to workgroup

Hi,

 

I have this setup at home and it works for me.

 

Could be a couple of things:

1. The firewall on both devices may be blocking the workgroup. I suggest turning the firewall off on both devices and trying again.

 

2. The router config could be preventing this communcation between devices. What sort brand / model of router do you have? 

 

I am pretty sure IPV6 is not the root cause and I would not suggest upgrading.

 

Regards,
Chris
