adding folders from networked XP machine or linux to Windows 7 library

leave a comment »

I use an old XP machine as a file server and would like to add some of the shares to Win7 libraries.

Seems that I need to either;

– Install Windows Desktop Search 4.0 on the XP machine open firewall ports.

– Or disable the group policy setting.

The second option would also allow folders on linux machines to be included
