    THis may be the wrong place for this question, and I don't have a lot of
    experience with AD.

    I've set up a basic AD enviroment for my home network (need it for
    development work). I think I have finally got the DNS fijoigured out as each
    of my computers can join the domain. They can see each other computer in the

    I've set up sharepoint on one of the computers successfully. When I try to
    browse from other computers, I can never get to the sharepoint site. I'm not
    really sure what I am missing in this puzzle or where to start looking.

    any advice is appreciated.

    Hi Dbrowne,

    When you re on the computer that is running sharepoint, are you able to
    connect to sharepoint without using localhost as the address? You should be
    able to connect to it by name and IP. If this doesn't work, it'll mean that
    you have some settings configured as localhost, which would never work

    From there, I would try to ping the other computer by name and IP from the
    remote hosts. A failure there would expose the problem. Finally check your
    IIS logs to see if the connection was attempted or is something was stopping
    the request from even getting to the service.

    Hope this helps.

    I discovered the problem. Inbound connections were block on the advanced
    firewall tab. Worked perfectly.
