    Windows 2008R2 Server Does Not Show Up as a Network Object

    Using a Windows 10 Pro workstation at the latest build, I am not able to see a Windows 2008R2 server as a network object.

    When I click the yellow folder icon on the task bar to view my folders, and then I click to expand the "Network" section on the left sidebar, I never see the Windows 2008R2 server as one of the objects in my network.

    How can I get the Windows 2008R2 server to show up here as an object?

    I got the server to show up as a network object on the Windows 10 Pro workstation.

    On the server, I unchecked the LMHOSTS lookup within the IP v4 properties, and I also made sure the WINS server and DNS was correctly addressed, and I enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP.

    On the workstation, I made sure the WINS and DNS were correctly addressed.
