    XP Can't see WIndows 10 computers on workgroup

    Ever since I updated my two work computers to the Creators Update version, I can no longer see them from Windows XP when I try to browse via Network Connections. I can see them if I reference them directly via the UNC name,I.E. \\SHOP10HX64 or \\SHOP10PX64.

    This was working fine until the Creators Update.

    Anyone else seeing this? Any fix?

    Yes, I know XP is old, old, old but there are still a lot of people who have it and when they bring their computer in for me to look at I need to be able to browse to either of the above win 10 computers for programs and drivers.

    The update knocks the Master browser when you look for PCs it doesn't look but asks the Master browser for a list. How to Determine the Master Browser in a Windows Workgroup | Scotties Tech.Info

    Probably need to either get IPv6 running on XP:

    Microsoft Corporation

    -10 will use this protocol preferentially, or else disable IPv6 on Windows 10:

    If your ISP connection doesn't uses IPv6, and less than 18% of the internet is running IPv6 so far:

    IPv6 – Google

    - and all of the internet still runs IPv4 - you do not need the overhead of this additional protocol on your network systems.

    IPv4 works fine. IPv6 is just a stopgap measure to cope with the short supply of IP addresses, and tends to cause loss of connection if not configured properly on all devices, especially routers.
