[SOLVED] Winpinator

Post by Peter Linu »

Hiyall,
I have added a Windows 10 laptop to my flock of laptops (or is that gaggle?). It can access the internet. When I try to transfer data from my Everyday (see signature) laptop neither sees the other. The router sees the Win10 laptop too.
I get: "No other computers found;" on both.
What must I do, oh wise ones?

I bet it is a Windows problem. Go to the settings of your "default" network connection and change the network profile to "private" to make the Windows laptop discoverable on local network.

Didn't work. Was already set to private.

Can Winpinator be detected by "Warpinator" on other devices than your main laptop? Laptops or mobile phone?

I suggest checking the Winpinator topic Winpinator - Warpinator port for Windows released for information.

Winpinator is not a Software application for Linux Mint so I am moving this topic to Open Chat.

Thank you MiZoG,
I was looking in the wrong place. Warpi/Winpinator work just fine now.
