SubObjective: Use the Network and Sharing Center to configure networking


Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice


You configure two Windows Vista computers named Vista1 and Vista2 on your home network. You want to connect to Vista2 from Vista1. You set the network location type as Public on Vista1.You are unable to connect. What should you do to ensure that you are able to connect to Vista2 successfully? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)



  1. In Network and Sharing, click the Diagnose and Repair option.
  2. Ensure network discovery is enabled on both Vista1 and Vista2.
  3. Ensure Vista2 has at least one shared folder.
  4. Ensure both Vista1 and Vista2 have at least one shared folder each.

Answers:



  1. Ensure network discovery is enabled on both Vista1 and Vista2.
  2. Ensure Vista2 has at least one shared folder.

Tutorial:
You should ensure network discovery is enabled on both Vista1 and Vista2 and that Vista2 has at least one shared folder. Network discovery is a network setting in Windows Vista that affects whether other computers and devices on the network are visible from your computer and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. It also affects whether you can access shared devices and files on other computers on the network and whether people using other computers on the network can access shared devices and files on your computer. When you connect your computer to a network, you must choose a network location. Windows Vista assigns a network discovery state to the network and opens the appropriate Windows Firewall ports for that state based on the network location you choose. When you set the network location type as Public, network discovery is turned off by default. To ensure that you are able to connect to other computers on your home network, you should turn on network discovery on your computer as well as the computer you want to connect to. The computer you want to connect to must also have at least one shared folder for you to connect to. Therefore, you should turn on network discovery on both Vista1 and Vista2 and that Vista2 has at least one shared folder.


You should not click the Diagnose and Repair option in Network and Sharing. This runs a series of automated diagnostic tests designed to repair common network connectivity problems. For example, if your computer were unable to resolve DNS names to IP addresses, clicking this could potentially solve the name resolution problem by flushing the DNS resolver cache and re-registering with DNS. This will not enable network discovery on the computer.


You should not ensure that both Vista1 and Vista2 have at least one shared folder each. When you want to connect to another Windows Vista computer, you must ensure that the other computer has at least one shared folder. It is not necessary that the computer you are using to connect from should also have at least one shared folder. Your computer must have a shared folder when the user of the other computer also wants to connect to your computer. In this scenario, you want to connect to Vista2 from Vista1. Therefore, you must ensure that Vista2 has at least one shared folder.
