I have been configuring servers lately and have come across an issue that wasn’t clear.

I needed to enable network discovery, link so I simply went to the advanced sharing center
Advanced Sharing Center

I was unable to keep the sharing active.

I realized that I needed to ensure that the following services were running:

  • Function Discovery Resource Publication
    SSDP Discovery
    UPnP Device Host

Also, viagra 100mg I wanted to see ping requests, order so I enabled the following in the Advanced Firewall settings:

PING Requests

  • Martin

    Was not able to see my Windows Server 2008 in the “network neighborhood”. This solved the problem. Thanks!

  • Bruce Mears

    On 2008 R2 those three services don’t exist!
