FAQ 104: Can I network between XP, Vista and Windows 7?

Postby Dan Tarbuck » December 14th, 2007, 3:25 pm

The short answer is: yes this should be fine.

Some customers experienced networking issues between Windows XP and Windows Vista when Vista was first released, however subsequent updates to Windows Vista seem to have solved the issues and we've had no reports of any problems with Windows 7.

If you do experience some difficulties (especially with with Windows Vista), here are some tips to try out :-

[1] Check the Workgroup names

Check that the Workgroup names (not the Network names) on both of the machines are the same. This can be changed by right clicking on 'Computer' or 'My Computer' on the desktop and then selecting Properties.

[2] Make sure your Windows Vista network type is set to a Private Network

You can modify this via the Network and Sharing Center option in the Control Panel, by clicking on Customize. This means your computers will be discoverable on the network.

[3] Check your Network Discovery Status

Make sure that the green led type lights in the Network and Sharing Center are on for File Sharing and Network Discovery. Make sure that both computers are set up for file sharing.

[4] Host your database from a Windows XP machine (not a Vista machine)

If you have a mixture of XP and Vista computer, sharing your database from a XP computer seems to (a) eradicate a lot of problems and (b) perform a lot faster.

[5] If you use the Network Map feature on Vista, you will find your XP machines don't show up

To correct this, you can download and install the following Microsoft update on your XP machines :-


This installs the new Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) which enables the network map in Vista to show all machines on the network. Not exactly necessary, but a nicety. (You will need to reboot your Windows XP machine after installting the above.)

Summary

After following the above suggestions, you should be able to see all your computers on your network. If you still experience problems, try disabling the Windows Firewall (and any other firewalls) on all computers to see if that is affecting anything.

If you are still struggling with networking issues and have joined the then please feel free to call us. If you're not on the Support Plan you can always post support requests in this free support forum.
