Workgroup Networking FAQs
How can I share
files between workgroup
computer and domain/workgroup computer
I have a home wireless network and share files and a printer between two computers. I also use Win 2000/XP laptop at work with domain network. How can I share files between these computers at home?
A: Deepening on your network setup, you may 1) Logon local laptop using the
same logon id and password on both machine.
For consultants, refer to workgroup ASP page.
Symptom: you may receive above error message when logging on a domain network option at home network without connecting to the domain controller and trying to access other computers in the home network.
Resolution: because you are logging the domain network without a domain server available to process authenticate, you may have two options to fix the problem. 1) You can use command net use \\computername /user:username (here the username is the remote computer logon username). You will be asked for the password (the password must match the remote computer logon user's password). 2) At home, setup the workgroup as the same domain name, test every thing on the laptop and then join the domain at work.
Symptom: Your WinXP, in a peer-to-peer
network, may receive the following error when you double-click

My W2K pro laptop
is in the work domain and W2K pro home PC is in a workgroup. I want to use the
shared printer on the workgroup PC to print from my domain PC. I get "No login
server available..." when trying to connect to the home PC from the work PC. I
can log into my work PC locally, but then I have to use a new profile and log
on/off, etc. Is there anyway for me to be able to print through the workgroup
PC without having to log out of my domain profile?
Q: Some users may occasionally be unable to gain access to your shared folder.
If all of the computers in a peer-to-peer workgroup don't have a common networking protocol, a common workgroup, and common user names and passwords, the computers may experience a difficulty to communicate with other computers that are running Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows 95, or Microsoft Windows 98. To resolve this issue, configure the computers by ensuring that they have a common networking protocol (TCP/IP), a common workgroup, and common user names and passwords. Also make sure enable File and Printer Sharing is installed.
