I get a feeling this should be really easy but I can't seem to get the two boxes to see each other...

Both boxes are using the same workgroup and stuff but they just refuse to talk.

Any ideas?

When I was in Korea we had a massive LAN in the dorms. Some people couldnt see others due to the fast that they had file sharing turned off. I cant remember exactly where the option is(i'll look for it in a bit) but Im sure as soon as you enable file sharing you should be able to browse each box.

Panic over, it seems to have resolved itself. Now both machines are quite happy to speak to each other.
