Subject: T61 peer connect

To: "eCS ThinkPad T60/61 Mailing List" <>


With my T61 under rc2 I had no problems w/ peer but
now I've reformatted and reinstalled rc5 and I can't get peer to
work.  I'm sure I have it setup right but I can connect in one
direction only.  The Thinkpad can see my network & shares
(wirelesss) but my other
network computers can only see the Thinkpad as a server but cannot
see the shares.  
Net view gets me a correct list but I get "The network path was not
found" when I do 'net view \\T61servername'.

I'm using a common logon between all computers.  Same rights, same
name, same PW.

I've double checked that the share is started and running lmsync
confirms a big green checkmark next to interface 0, 1, & 2 and
matches the below listed networks.

This lack of connectivity is for BOTH wired & wireless interfaces.

Again, I can connect at my Thinkpad and map drives of other
computers.  But I cannot
map to the Thinkpad from the rest of the network.

And to make it more frustrating, I have no problem connecting to
that computer from eCS when it is running XP, I only have the
problem when it's running eCS (kinda backwards from the usual

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jon
