Comp A sees comp B but not vice-versa!

    I have two computers (A has Win2k Server and is, B has Win2k pro
    and is Both are on the same private network. When on computer
    A I type: start->run->"\\" it pops up a login, and I can get to
    the file shares. However, from computer B, if I type:
    start->run->"\\" it says it cannot find it.

    They are both in the same workgroup. When I check the local area connection
    on the laptop, it has "Client for Microsoft Networks" checked.

    Does anyone know what I might be doing incorrectly? Do you know what port is
    used for those requests? What protocol do I need installed? Service?

    does ping work in both directions?

    Under Network you should have:
    * TCP/IP
    * File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Network
    * Client for Microsoft Network
