no idea where to look.

Try the WideFS user guide, its described there.


      266 Trying to locate server: Need details from Server Broadcast

As fully described in the WideFS user guide (see the "configuring" section), for broadcasts to work you MUST have at least WinXP SP1 or later on each PC, and all PCs must be in the same Windows workgroup.

If you don't want to rename one or other of your workgroups so that they are the same, or they are the same but something else is using the broadcaster port already (Port2 in your INI files), you can instead add the ServerName and Protocol parameters into the INI.
