windows XP 64 and 32 bit networking

November 11, 2009 at 12:08:25
Specs: Windows XP
We have 5 windows xp 32 bits system on the network in the same workgroup working fine.

We go two new systems with 64 bit hardware and loaded the 64 bit XP os on both. Both put in the same workgroup as all but the 64 bits can not login to each other, but they both login fine on the 32 bit systems.
Why would 64 bit see and access the 32 bit systems but the 64 bit can't login to each other?
Any thought would be appreciated

x64 and x32 has nothing to do with networking. This is transparent to networking.

usual reason for what you see is local firewall configurations

And you should be asking in the networking forum.

Yeah, networking has nothing to do how Windows uses your memory and processes. The 64-bit installation just have different settings. In Windows, these things are so unclear, you need to have done studies to understand. But, as said before -> networking thread.
