    How To Keep A Machine Awake On The Lan?


    I have just one machine on our little lan that seems to disappear from time to time and it looks like it does that because it goes into sleep mode.

    How do I fix that if that's what it probably is?

    :)

    Good LAN party games?

    Most of my suggestions have already been listed.

    However, I found Swat4 to actually be a pretty fun LAN game, especially at smaller LAN parties.

    How To Keep A Machine Awake On The Lan?

    Windows 10 cannot see ANY machines on home LAN


    Hi there

    Tried your suggestions - No difference

    Here's example -- one Linux and 2 W10 machines currently up and running on my LAN - both W10 pro X-64

    Linux sees W10 machines - Linux machine is Gylfi running Centos 7 -- the other two are W10.

    Access to either W10 machine and the Windows shares on either windows machine from Centos (Linux) no problem.

    W10 Machines don't even show a SINGLE computer -- all sharing and networking discovery enabled --even with Firewall off for testing.

    The W10 machines though show devices such s chromecast or servers - squeezebox (Logitech media server) and Plex.

    Grhhhhhh!!!

    Anyway something to do on a rainy / snowy cold Sunday. !!!

    Here's the screenshots -- computer Gylfi is the Linux one the other two are Windows 10.
