WideFS7 client on win xp won't talk to server on win 8.1

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

 

Need a bit of help. Today I installed FSUIPC (registered version) no problem. Next after reading the WideFS documentation attempted to install WideFS. Server is an new windows 8.1 machince. Client windows xp. When I run WideFSclient on the xp machine the process gets stuck at "waiting for a connection". Workgroups are the same. I tried updating config file with ServerName= and protoco=TCP. No help. Ugh! Firewalls off on both machines. Any idea what's going on? I've heard win 8.1 has issues with networking but I have no knowledge of what that might be. Please adise.

 

Kind Regards,
Paul

Did you change them to be the same? By default I'm sure the XP workgroup is different from the Win7 workgroup -- don't know about Win8 though.

What do the log files show? Both the server and client produce a log showing what is going on -- WideServer.LOG in the FS Modules folder, WideClient.log in the client folder. Please paste them both into a message here, along with your WideClient.INI file.
