Hi- I added another machine to my network .. I tried to connect to my
database via admin. with connect and the server name did not show up on the
list (file, connect, server)... So it is not recognizing the Server... Why
I wonder?

Nope- I wish it was that easy. The crazy thing is that I can connect to an
other server on an other machine, but not the other machine...

Sounds like a Windows Firewall issue. There was an entry way back when SP2
came out for XP that had the firewall. There were a few things you had to
"customize" Windows Firewall to allow this to work.

Is your second computer using the same IP range ?
Maybe you can try to enter the computer IP instead of the computer name. But if you do that you will need to ensure that computer's IP is static.
